The subject of this sketch attended the district school in Wadsworth until
about 11 years of-age, and then attended the academy until about 17 years of age, when he engaged in the study of law with William Cunningham, Esq., at Canal Fulton. While engaged in the study of law with that gentleman, he also learned telegraphy, which proved to be
valuable knowledge to him in after life in a position which he occupied for several years after his return from the army--that of traveling agent for the A. & G. W. R. R. He graduated from the National Law School at Ballston Spa, N. Y., in August, 1832. He practiced law at Seville with James C. Johnson for some time, then went to Summit Co., Ohio, where he was a member of the bar for about six years at Akron. He then enlisted in the service of his country under the first call; afterward came home, and recruited for and was a member of Co. D, 29th O. V. I., known as Joseph Giddings' Regiment, until March, 1862, when he was discharged on account of disability.
