In the War of 1812 he served in a company of Cherokees under Capt. John Brown, Col. Gideon Morgan and Maj. Gen. Andrew Jackson, fighting the Creeks from Jan. 17 to April 11, 1814.

Census of the Cherokee Nation in 1835 and followed the "Trail of Tears" westward when the Cherokees were moved from Georgia. 041-2 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1955"
