    Sailed from Dublin, Ireland June 13, 1791.    Landed in Baltimore, MD August 25, 1791.  Married in Frederick Co., MD in 1797.  Lived in Bottetourte Co., VA for 8 or 10 years.  Moved to Sullivan Co., TN about 1806, on Beaver Creek in the upper end of that county, lived there for 3 or 4 years.  For a time, lived at "Old Boatyard" on the left bank of the North Fork river in Washington Co., VA, a few miles NW of Abingdon.  About 1822, the family returned to Sullivan Co., TN and permanently settled at "The Boatward" [later Kingsport].

Established himself in the Mercantile business & erected large warehouses for storing the salt hauled there in wagons & from which houses it was loaded into the boats when suitable tides came.  He continued to sell goods here for as long as he lived.

He was not rich, but he had plenty.

He built a large & commodious dwelling, with two story covered porches, on an eminence overlooking the Holston River & beyond it the beautiful Bays Mountains, with a large lawn sloping towards the river and covered with luxuriant bluegrass.  The storehouse was some distance from the residence, & down a grade from there.  Between the dwelling & the storehouse, he made a stepped plank walk making a comfortable passway to & fro.

Their beautiful home was burned, and the E.C. Railroad for awhile under construction, never yet built, cut through their yard & garden.
