Family History : In 1795, sometime after his father's death, he returned to Vermont and recovered a portion of the lands owned by the family and for a time was the town clerk of Londonderry, Vermont. His return to the United States likely led to his suspension in 1804. Although living in the United States during the War of 1812, he did not take up arms. He returned to his Canadian properties around 1818.
