He was born in Williamson county, Tennessee; was unmarried, at the time of his death, was an acceptable member of Sardis church and a member of the Sabbath school and a regular attendant at prayer meeting. He enjoyed the respect and confidence of those who knew him.

Resolved, That we sympathize with the bereaved mother, brothers, and sisters of our departed friend.
Resolved, that this preamble and resolutions be spread upon the minutes and  copy furnished the family of which our departed brother was a member.
