One of the early settlers of Des Moines, is a native of Pennsylvania, and was born on the 23day of December, 1804.

In 1848 he came to Des Moines and was one of the first and prominent merchants. After selling goods for two years he was more or less engaged in real estate operations. He married Miss Eliza Bowner in 1833. She was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, January 23, 1813, and died in this city in 1874, leaving nine children: Henry H., Amanda E., Laura J., Charles J., Cornelia, Jonathan, Florence and Thomas A.
