After filling three appointments ill-health necessitated his taking a local relation, which he held three years; then, in 1859, he united with the North- western Indiana Conference, and was appointed to Covington circuit, where he labored but a week or two when he was attacked with consumption, which terminated his life, Dec. 7, 1859.
