Captain of the Lancaster County Milita, Pennsylvania, during the Revolutionary War. On the Patriots' List of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Married to Mary Elizabeth Geiger on April 25, 1786, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, by the Rev. Joseph Hutchins, rector of St. James Episcopal Church.

After the war was over, he and his family settled with other German Baptist Brethren (today's Church of the Brethren) families in Brothers Valley Township, Somerset County, Pennsylvania. [now Berlin, PA].

Sometime before Ohio became a state in 1803, he and his family settled in what became Madison Township outside Dayton, Ohio.

On March 7, 1809, Madison Township, Montgomery County, Ohio, was formed in his living room.

Note: In 1996, the city of Trotwood merged with the remaining unincorporated areas of Madison Township which had not been incorporated into Dayton, thereby extinguishing Madison Township, as a separate entity.
