He was soldier in the Rev. War. He was undoubtedly the man of that name who settled in Mid. about 1786, as his neighbors were from Somers and Enfield with some of whom he participated in the insurgent activities incident to Shays' Rebellion. He served on the school committee in 1794. By trade he was a shoemaker and harnessmaker. He had moved away from town before 1810.

"The most significant development was the building of a tavern in the angle between the County Road and the Partridgefield Road between 1780 and 1784, probably by Enos Blossom, a native of Barnstable, Massachusetts, Eliakim Wardwell, a shoemaker and saddler, located a short distance south."
