      On 4 Feb 1754, he was made administrator of the estate of Hopestill Allen, widow of Benjamin Allen of Rehoboth. At that time, he also became the guardian of his wife, Hannah, who was still a minor over 14 years old, and Hopestill's granddaughter. On 1 Apr 1760, he became the guardian of Jonah Humphrey's children including Sarah, Mary, Jonah, William, and Silence. Jonah Humphrey was from Swansea.

      He served in the Americal Revolutionary War from Rehoboth for 7 days on the alarm of 19 Apr 1775. He served as a Sergeant with Captain John Lyons or Captain Jesse Persin's Company. On 13 Mar 1777, he was appointed by the Council of War to command a flotilla of boats in an expedition against the British. At that time, he was given the rank of major.
