He was a shoemaker by trade.
On 4 October 1872 he enlisted in the 7th U. S. Cavalry at Nashville, Tennessee

At the time of the Battle of the Little Big Horn he was in Company H under Frederick Benteen. He saw action on what is now called Reno Hill.

The exploits of his frontier military battle life might have been overwhelming to him. He died at what was then called The Asylum for the Insane in Washington D. C. That would have been St. Elizabeth's, a hospital for the insane who were or had been in the military.

According to hospital records, many were later taken to Arlington National, however he was not one of them and remains at St. Elizabeth East.
