Soon after his marriage he removed to Groton, and settled in the north part of the town. The exact location of his hose is not now known.

In the year 1702 the Provencial authorities granted him immunity from taxation, and a pension of three pounds sterling yearly, on account of physical disability contracted in an encounter with the savages during King Williams war. He lived to extreme old age.
