When he was about 30 years old, he moved to Georgia for 20 years, then to west Florida for 9 years, where he acquired large land holdings. He then moved ca. 1815, to Clark County, AR, by way of Louisiana. He owned some 20,000 acres of land in Clark County and another large acreage in LaFayette County, where he built a family residence. He built a log house in Clark County, where he liked to stay when he came to Arkadelphia on business; he loved to watch the westward surge of immigrants over the Caddo trail and to visit with travelers. After his death in 1833, in Blakelytown (later Arkadelphia), he was buried within sight of the Caddo trail near the log house. The words "A Soldier of the Revolution" carved on his tombstone kept his grave safe for many years." from the book "Clark County Past & Present"
