Colonel. A 1743 graduate of Yale University, he was commissioned as an Ensign and participated in King George's War during the Siege of Louisbourg in 1745. In 1755 he was appointed as Lieutenant Colonel of the 2nd Connecticut Militia Regiment and participated in the battle of Lake George and Fort Edward. His actions immediately following the French-Indian ambush on the road to Fort Edward influenced the outcome of the battle and the capture of the French commander. He was promoted to Colonel in 1756 and was stationed at Fort Number 4 in New Hampshire to guard the frontier. After the war he served in the Connecticut General Assembly until his death.
