When he came to Jamaica he was so devoted to the interests of the church that he became collector in church, collector of subscriptions, one of the committee for regulating the pews and the burying ground, sexton and vestryman. His punctuality and quiet demeanor in church were exemplary. He died, September 21, 1842, aged sixty-eight.
