He removed with his parents, at an early age, to Belmont county, Ohio, where he remained until he was eleven years old. He then went to Wayne county, Indiana, where he grew to manhood. His father died when he was small, and he was then apprenticed to Jeremiah Crampton to learn the trade of a tanner. He then went to the western part of Indiana and engaged in farming for three years, and later, worked several years on the Erie canal. In 1842 he went to Holt county, Missouri, where he resided until 1863, when he came to this county. Was married January 7, 1845, to Miss Eliza Jane Templeton, of Hancock county, Indiana.
