    Biography
    • He first settled on an improved farm at the foot of Peter's Mountain, about 10 miles north of Harrisburg. In 1773 he exchanged his farm in Dauphin County for a large tract of improved land owned by William Patterson, in Turbot Township, Northumberland County, and soon after removed to the same, building himself a small dwellinghouse of hickory saplings, and named it "Paradise". in 1779 when the British and Indians attacked Fort Freeland, 4 miles from his home, he, with his wife and children, escaped and returned to Dauphin County, where he rented a farm until 1783, when he returned to his home in Turbot Township. Upon arriving he found that the buildings had been burned and that Capt. William Rice & Co., who had been sent to the frontier, had built a two-story limestone building that enclosed the spring and was known as Fort Rice. He made some alterations in it and used it for a dwelling house. November 8, 1792, he was killed by a tree falling upon him while he was opening the Derry road leading from Milton to Derry Township, Montour County.
