He was one of the earliest of the pioneers in this section of Missouri, and was widely known as a teacher and farmer. He received a good education in Boone County and was a man of such attainments that he became a leader of the pioneers of Henry County after settling in section 22, Windsor township, in 1855. Windsor township was then known as Belmont township. He improved his land, developed a good farm from the prairie and cultivated it until his death.
