Pedigree Resource File says he died in Nantucket, Nantucket, Massachusetts, but U.S., Quaker Meeting Records, 1681-1994 say he was living in Guilford County, North Carolina.

There are NO records found showing death/ burial information, so this record will stand for him until one is found.

U.S., Quaker Meeting Records, 1681-1994 records say he was "disowned" from the Society of Friends for fighting, cussing, and dressing outside the "acceptable" and approved beliefs of the Society of Friends, and for marrying without the approval of the Society of Friends. He apparently was approached by members of the Society of Friends and given the opportunity to denounce and request forgiveness for his evil ways, and his marriage; however refused to accommodate this request, which is why he was disowned.

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988 say he was born and grew up in Massachusetts, but U.S., Quaker Meeting Records, 1681-1994 records say he was living in and married in Guildford, North Carolina, USA from 1785-April 1822.
