He plied boats down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers carrying goods and produce to New Orleans. It has been said that he returned home to Belmont Co. from New Orleans "on foot" three times. One of the last acts of his life was the shipping of two boats loads with goods and produce from Wheeling WVa. After selling the goods, produce and boats in New Orleans he booked passage to Philadelphia, Pa. via the Atlantic Ocean.
