He was educated at Jeffereson College (now W & J) at Canonsburg, Washington Co., Pa. He and his older brother James, after completeing their studies at Jefferson College were engaged in farming on the old NIcholson farm, two miles north of New Geneva, at the mouthof Jacob's Creek. On May 25 1829 He was married to Mary Ann Buttle, a daughter of the family of Swiss pioneers brought to New Geneva by Albert Gallatin. Shortly after his marriage, he located in Pittsburgh, Pa. and opened a store at No. 2 St. Claire St. Here his oldest son Charles was born on April 15th 1830. In a year or so they returned to the old Nicholson farm at the mouth of Jacob's Creek where all of their other children were born."
