He afterwards resided for a short time in Albany and in Byron, Genessee County and came to this village in 1839, where he remained until his death. In all his business relations, he maintained the strictest integrity and never departed from what he conceived to be a course of rigid and exact justice. At about the age of 33, he made a profession of religion and united with the christian church. In 1827 he was elected elder and has continued in that capacity. In his family he faithfully sustained the position of husband nd father and beautifully illustrated all the duties which are imposed by those sacred and interesting relations. Eulogy.
