Left without a father at an early age, he helped to support his mother and a large family, but married at 18 years of age. By insistent economy became the owner of two small sailing vessels, which were used for fishing expeditions. These, with his other belongings, he sold, and with the funds he and his wife came to America to become a part in building up the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which faith they had embraced, having previously been allied with the Presbyterian sect. Immediately after arriving in Salt Lake he located in Davis county, where he lived until March 24, 1880, dying at the age of 84. Sources:
