In the community in which he lived he was called on a lawyer, doctor and general advisor. He owned a farm on Caney Fork River. He bought the "Old Hotel" at Smithville, TN from David James (it was built by a stock company in 1837). James Madison Lee was living there when he died. He went down on Caney Fork to get some seed sweet potatoes and died there suddenly with a congestive chill.
