This gentleman was born at New-Haven, and educated to the trade of a saddler. Being a man of strong and original thought, about the age of thirty, he abandoned his occupation, and prepared himself for the practice of law, which he commenced at Woodbury, and continued successfully until 1795; when his infirmities compelled him to relinquish his practice. He died May, 1803, aged 69.

His cotemporaries award him the character of a sagacious, vigorous and honest man. He represented his town in the General Assembly, May, and October, 1782, May, 1784, October, 1784, 1788, 1789.
