In 1839 he was appointed to the office of presiding elder, but was compelled to resign, on account of ill health, in the winter of 1841-42. He became a member of the East Baltimore Conference upon its formation in 1857, and in 1863 was a superannuate, continuing, however, to preach frequently. He died Jan. 20, 1868.
