In the fall of 1779 he moved with his father's family to Kentucky, and settled at Bryan's Station. Here he continued to serve in frontier Indian warfare until the time of his marriage.
He lived for a time at Lexington, where his son Levi was born in 1808, and later removed to Todd County, near the present town of Elkton, where he located on a farm and built the home in which he lived until his death. He never fully recovered from the wound he received at the battle of Blue Licks, and it is said that the bullet he had received in the hip remained there during the rest of his life.
