He was brought up on a farm and received an excellent common school educa- tion, taught school for awhile, then was teacher of penmanship and mathamatics in a college in Norfolk, Va., for two years. Returning to Worcester , Mass., he began the manufacture of valentines, and engaged in the wholesale stationery and notion business, which he followed till the end of life. He was not in politics, and his only interest aside from his business was in the Baptist church, of which he was an officer. He d. Aug. 29, 1861; res. Portsmouth, Va., and Worcester, Mass. 7583. i.

In early life he was, for four years, clerk in the Metropolitan bank in New York City. He is engaged in the wholesale stationery business in that city, and has been since 1858; is a prominent worker in all Y. M. C. A. and Sunday-school matters. He never held any public office, or cared for it. For some years he has been president of the Y. M. C. A. and of the Worcester County Congregational Club; res. Crown St., Worcester, Mass. 7586. i.
