He was graduated at the University of Glasgow in 1793, studied theology, and was licensed to preach by the presbytery of Monaghan. He came to the United States in 1797, and, after laboring in Washington, New York, until 1803, he became pastor of an Associate Reformed Church in Philadelphia. He was active in establishing the theological seminarv of that denomination in New York City, assisted in the organization of the Philadelphia Bible society in 1808, and was for some time its corresponding secretary. In connection with Dr. S. B. Wylie he opened at this time a classical academy, but retired after several years and went to Baltimore, Maryland, where he devoted himself to the study of special subjects in theology. For one year he edited the "Theological Review." He published "Mediatorim Reign of the Son of God "; "Disserration on the Priesthood of Jesus Christ and Melchisedec, together with the Life of Christ" (Hagerstown, Maryland, 1850); and sermons.
