Was born in Philadelphia, July 4, 1756. He entered Washington's army in the earliest part of the struggle for Independence. In the art of ship carving he surpassed any other American, and probably any other ship carver in the world. Among the principal evidences of his great eminence as a sculptor in wood, is the full length statue of Washington in Independence Hall. He was for more than twenty-five years a member of Councils of the City of Philadelphia. He died January 27, 1833, in his 77th year. [Pp. 22-23.]
