He was in early life scripturally converted at Midway, Meriweather Co., GA., and at once united with the Methodist Church, and was a loyal, faithful and consistent member until called from the church militant to the church triumphant in glory. He studied medicine in Greenville, GA, in 1853 and attended lectures in Augusta, GA. In 1854 he went to Texas, and in 1858 returned to Alabama in April, and again took lectures in Mobile, AL.

But is was in the quiet precincts of his own private home that the real beauties of his life displayed themselves. His thoughtfulness of their comfort, his tender sympathies and loving ministrations in their affliction and sorrows, made him the true and affectionate husband, the devoted and tender father and grandfather.
      "He was laid to rest in Andrews Chapel Cemetery, after the funeral services conducted by his pastor, Rev. C. C. Godby, Rev. John W. Robertson of his own lodge, in hope of a glorious resurrection.
