He married Luvina Singleton in Lincoln County, Kentucky, on March 2, 1802; they had nine children. Traveling to Texas with members of his family and his wife’s, he became one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists and received title to a sitio of land in what became Waller County on July 19, 1824.
