Soon after graduation he pursued a course of study in the Theological Seminary at Princeton, N. J., but afterwards preferred to enter upon the study of medicine. He received the degree of M. D from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, and resided in that city engaged in practice until 1850, when he removed to Fordham, Westchester Co., N. Y. In May 1843 he was appointed Resident Surgeon of the New York Hospital, having been assistant surgeon for two years previous. In 1844 he went to Europe, where he remained two years, attending the hospitals in London and Paris in order to improve his knowledge of the profession. During most of his residence in Fordham he held the appointment of physician and surgeon to St. John's College. He married in New York in May, 1847, Miss Elizabeth C. Hall, who died February 4, 1855, leaving four children, three of whom died the year following These severe bereavements were doubtless the occasion of the decline which ended in his death.
