He served in the French war of 1757-'9, and was in the bloody attack on Ticonderoga in 1758. He went to Arlington, in the New Hampshire grants, in 1764, settled there, and became one of the leaders of the "Green Mountain Boys," aiding Ethan Allen in his struggles against the claims of New York to that part of the country. Ha was outlawed by Governor Tryon, of New York, a price being sat upon his head, and on one occasion ha was actually captured, but was rescued on the same day, after he had been cruelly maimed. He was with Ethan Allen at the capture of Ticonderoga, 10 May 1775, and with Seth Warner at Crown Point two days afterward. He met his death at the hands of the Indians when on a scouting expedition on Richelieu river, the outlet of Lake Champlain.
