In 1860 he was a coach maker presumably living in or near Gettysburg, Adams County, Pennsylvania, although he is found neither in that census nor the 1863-65 draft registration. He stood 5' 11" tall and had grey hair and brown eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he served two terms of service:

He died at his home reportedly from consumption. No obituary was found in any online newspaper archive.
