He attended school until 16 years of age and then employed in farming.  In 1847 he came to American and settled in Montgomery Co., NY where he engaged in farming for four years.  He then went to work at the carpenter and joiner’s trade, at which he was employed two years, then came west to Indiana and spent 18 months in Lafayette, working at carpentering.  In 1854 he came to Monticello, Green County, and worked on the mill there one winter.  He continued working at his trade in different parts of the county until 1860, when he bought land on section 30, of the town of Albany, on which were slight improvements, consisting of 40 acres broken and a log house, in which he lived 7 years, then built a commodious brick home.  He has since erected a frame barn and other farm buildings.  He owns 180 acres of land.  He was married in 1859 too Angeline Meinert and they have six children—Maria, Cassie, Lizzie, Ida, Willie, and Vena.
