He was ordained and installed pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Housatonic, Mass., and subsequently became pastor of the New Britain Church, Conn., where he remained until he was elected professor of geology at Marietta College in 1851.

He was recently appointed one of the members of the Board of Inspection of the United States Mint, Philadelphia, He published several valuable papers, and a work on geology for the use of colleges and schools.
