In August, 1870, he went to Kansas and there engaged in railroading. Part of his time in that State was spent in Emporia, where he remained till September, 1872. He then came to Daviess county, and locating in Jackson township, was soon called on to serve his fellow citizens in a public office. He was elected township constable and collector, and served two years, refusing reelection. From that time he turned his attention to farming and stock raising, till his health failed him. He made a trip to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and after his return came to Jamesport, where he went into his present business of butchering and stock trading.
