He was wounded on the first day of the Battle of the Wilderness. He afterward resided in Wayne County, Michigan, and came to New York State in 1876. In 1880 he purchased the "Ark " property from Calvin Carpenter, remodeled it and improved it, and made it the popular resort that it is. The mineral springs here have become almost famous.
