A hero of the Revolutionary War, he entered the service 13 Jan. 1776, in Winslow Lewis' Co. at Cambridge, and served without absence until discharged in Jan. 1777. He served also in the company of Capt. Elijah Vose, Col. John Graton's Regt.; was in the battle of Lake Champlain when Gen. Arnold was defeated.

Before and after the above service he was in the state militia; he was a pensioner under the Act of 1818; Rep., Gen'l Connecticut, Massachusetts, 1801-4-6.
