From his application for a pension, we learn that during the Revolution he lived at Norwich; served in the militia, some of the time in a mustered company; in service other than military. His witnesses were Amos Gallup, Caleb Huntington, and his brother, Samuel. After the Revolution, he lived in Stockbridge, Mass., and about 1802, moved to Stonington. (Conn. Men in the Rev'n, 640, 661, and Pension Application, Inv. 16613). It is reported that he had five children, but we cannot find any record of them.
