In the fall of that year he went to Schuyler, Herkimer county, where he married and in December 1803 with his wife and infant daughter, came to Rutland, Jefferson county and purchased a farm near Burr's Mills. Two years later he moved to Hounsfield, same county, purchased some land and erected a sawmill, the place being known for some time as Smith's Mills, later Camp's Mills. From Hounsfield he returned to Rutland, purchased another farm, built a frame house where he lived until 1818, when he purchased and removed to a large farm in Rodman, where he spent the remainder of his life and which is still owned by his descendants.
