Was born in Virginia, on the 7th day of October, 1820, and lived there twenty-two years. He learned the trade of blacksmith and carriage-maker, and followed the business a long time as an occupation. He removed to Iowa in 1844, and settled in Wapello county. He came to Des Moines at the time of the Indian payment, and purchased property he now owns.
