His home industry was the manufacture of rosettes out of tin as ornaments for the harness of horses.
He became a molder by trade, and in 1868 established a home at Akron. He worked for the Erie Stove Company, and subsequently was engaged in the retail grocery business until about 1880.

In 1880 he engaged in manufacturing, establishing the Enterprise Manufacturing Company for the making of fishing tackle and similar lines.
