Born, Feb. 18, 1845, at Milton, Vt. After graduation he was employed by
the Rutland and Burlington R.R. Co., in the general ticket office until the
following June. He then went to Kewanee, Ill., as station and freight
agent, where he remained until his health failed. Deciding to go among the
mountains, his friends presented him a purse of one hundred and twenty-five
dollars, which was collected in a few minutes, and he went to Cheyenne, Wyoming
Territory, where he lived three or four months. In his last sickness he
was visited by the Episcopal and Methodist clergymen, both of whom thought he
died as a Christian.
He died at Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory, Oct. 23, 1869.
