  • Find a grave memorial: Burial location unknown. He attended Yale college and probably studied at Litchfield Law School before practicing in Ithaca, NY. He and Anne divorced about 1818 and she married his law clerk, Samuel Gott in 1819. He died about 1830 in Cinncinnati, Ohio. (NOTE: Since no divorce record is currently available to support this statement, I have elected to leave the marraige as is currently indicated, rather than change the record to show a divorce)
