From The history of New Ipswich, New Hampshire
by Charles H. Chandler (Sentinel Print Co., Fitchburg MA, 1914)
He studied at Otterbein College, but did not complete a full course. In 1854 he joined a colony formed to settle in Oregon, whither they journeyed with ox-teams, being nearly six months on the way. He took up a half-section of land and became a farmer, but taught during the winters and until nearly the end of his life. He married a widow with several children and a farm which with his own amounted to nearly 1000 acres and seemed a comfortable barony for their children.
