He became an influential citizen of his county in his day. Figures from the montgomery county tax-digests show his large estate. In 1854 thedigest shows he owned 3127 acres of land, 19, slaves, and other properties. The 1859 digest shows 3000 acres of land and 27 slaves,livestock and other property.
