He was granted letters of dismissal 27 Nov 1841 from Bushy Creek Primitive Baptist Church and became a charter member of Mt. Union Church and later Old Mt Paron Church nearer their home. He was licensed to preach by Mt. Paron Church and later ordained to the full Gospel ministry by that church. When he died he owned 1030 acres of land in lots 195,196. & 174.
