Seems certain that he was a member of the Episcopal church. He does have some history in the small town of Eden NC. He bought some land here a year or so before he died that he left his two sons. There is an old Episcopal church on Henry St. he supposed to help start and at least one of his children is buried there. There is also a run down school, now used as a junk shed in the backyard of a small mill house that his children either built or help start.

My ongoing doctoral studies at a major private research university are in American Religious History. There are already plenty of experts here who can answer questions on politcal, legal, and military history; I am available to answer questions on religious history. Some examples come to mind: How have American preferences for democracy over other forms of organization affected American religious life? How did the churches react to the approaching Civil War?


At my current institution I have served three terms as a Teaching Fellow, helping a professor deliver course material. I currently teach adjunctively at Belmont University.
