Having experienced religion and received license to exhort, he removed to Missouri, and in 1844 was licensed to preach, and admitted into the St. Louis Conference. Between 1863 and 1865, on account of the ravages of the war, he sustained a superannuated relation. He was then transferred to the East Texas Conference, wherein he labored with fidelity and usefulness until Dec. 27, 1867, when he suddenly died in the midst of his labors.
