At 30 years of age, he became the trader for the West family, and three years afterward was appointed to the ministerial charge with John Martin. He has held almost all the offices in the society, and is now, with Mr. Parkhurst, trustee of the four families. He is a large, well developed man, six feet high and well proportioned.
