Subsequently he resided for ten years and more in Western New York as a missionary in the service of the American Home Missionary Society, and performed a most acceptable work in preaching to several churches in that newly settled region. He did a like service in sparsely settled sections of New Hampshire and Vermont. For several years he resided at Shutesbury, Mass., preaching as opportunity presented. He died at Fall River, Mass., March 1, 1861. See the Cong. Quarterly, 1861, p. 216. (J. C. S.)
