   Born in Vermont. Entered service of North West Company, 1800, at Montreal, and left immediately for the western fur country.

Returned to the West, and remained there several years, finally settling with his native wife and family on the shores of Lake Champlain. One of his daughters conducted a private school in Ottawa for many years.
