This pioneer settler was attracted to the community while driving hogs through from Ohio to Detroit. A butcher by trade, he settled here in 1825 and was first employed by Gen. John Tipton to furnish meat rations for the Indians during treaty negotiations. "He operated a meat market and general store here for many years, selling everything from buttons to grindstones.

"He represented Allen County twice in the state legislature and was a strong advocate of public schools."
