He was born at Scotch Plains, Essex County, New Jersey, in August, 1749, and lived there many years, and married Phebe SQUIER, of the same place, by whom he had eleven children, ten of whom lived to be men and women, from which he has now living thirty-four Grand children, and fifteen Great Grand children. He has served as a Deacon of the Regular Baptist Church, more than forty years, and died as he lived, full and strong in the faith of the Gospel of Christ, and through grace was enabled to say in his dying hour,??"Death has lost his sting, and the grave its victory."??He was a firm friend to the liberties of his country, and bore arms to repel the tyranny of Britain, and his Democratic Republican principles were in perfect accordance with the old Jefferson school.
