In 1842 he became pastor at Blountville, Sullivan Co. He remained in this section several years, and built up some of the most active and powerful churches in the state. In 1849 he removed to Abingdon, Va., and did good service in missionary work. — Subsequently he returned to Tennessee, and itinerated in West Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, and Missouri. The closing years of his life were spent in Arkansas, where he died Oct. 23, 1871. See Borum, Sketches of Tenn. Ministers, p. 1551-60. (J. C. S.)
