He built his house, which can be seen nearby, about 1764. A trader, he cleared wilderness and fought Indians in "Cresap's War" in Ohio, 1774. As a Captain he led riflemen, some painted Indian-style, to Boston at the start of the Revolution. Because of failing health he attempted to return home but died on the way and is buried in Trinity Churchyard, New York City. A brick addition to the house was built about 1781.
