He graduated from Yale College in 1801. He began, in 1802, the study of law, with judge Thomas Scott Williams, of Hartford, Connecticut, then a resident of Mansfield; but the death of his brother threw upon him the care of his father's store, and led him to relinquish his law studies. During his long life he several times represented his native town in the Connecticut State Legislature, was for a period of six years Judge of Probate for the district of Mansfield, for twenty years Postmaster at Mansfield Center, and for thirty-five years Justice of the Peace, holding the latter office until he reached the age of seventy years, the limit fixed by the law of the State. He ran as an Anti-Mason for governor four times, in 1831, 1833, 1834, and 1835. None of these attempts were successful. He died at Mansfield, Connecticut, February 17, 1867, aged 87 years. He was the last survivor of the Yale Class of 1801. (en)
