Co-founder, editor and publisher of the Fort Wayne Sentinel in its *very* early days! I don't know the bounds of his career, but he was editor and/or involved at least from 1833-1857.

Interred Feb 21, 1875.

One side of his primary plot stone is meant to memorialize his first wife and two children who died and were buried before Lindenwood came into existence. Who knows where their remains lie, for it doesn't appear they were removed to Lindenwood. The information from that stone's side:
