In the year 1819, he came to Canada with his parents. On February 16th, 1830, he was married to Anna, daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth (Cressman) Weber. She was born in Berlin, Waterloo County, August 14th, 1811. After their marriage they moved on their farm situated in Woolwich Township, about three miles north of Waterloo. Here they resided until 1857, then moved on the farm now possessed by their son, Enos. Here he died November 20th, 1879.
