He served as surety for at least 3 of his childrens' marriages.

1792 At tax time he was the only male in the family over 21 and had 150 acres, 4 horses and 18 cattle. Brothers, Enoch and George lived in the same district.

1793 He paid taxes on the same acreage and livestock. He was also the only male still over 21 in the house.
