drove with a horse and chaise 400 miles and took up land in Clarendon, N. Y. and

but was a devout student of the Bible, a strict observer of the sabbath, and one who
sought reverently to do the will of God. Politically, he was a strong Republican, always
taking active interest in the success of the party. For 2 years in 1861 and 62 he was supervisor
of Clarendon. He was under the care of his son George, who always lived on the homestead,
