In 1870, he was living in Tyrone Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania (7). He was living with his wife Sarah, and Robert, Lydia, and Abby (presumably their children) (7). He was a farm laborer, and owned $1,000 in real estate and $400 in personal property (7).

In 1880, he was living in Tyrone Township, Adams County, Pennsylvania (8). He was living with his wife Sarah and daughters Annie and Abbie (8). He was a farmer (8).
