Born at Amlwch, Anglesey, 10 August 1856, he was educated at Rhos-y-bol school in that county when Sir John Rhys was its headmaster. He began to preach when he was seventeen; he also, in early youth, began to win prizes in eisteddfodau. He emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1880, became a member of the Congregational Association in Oneida County, New York State, and pastor of Peniel church, Remsen, in the same state. In 1899 he joined the Calvinistic Methodists in the New York Association; in 1911, however, he rejoined the Congregationalists, and became minister at Pittston, Pennsylvania. He contributed much over a period of fifty years to Welsh-American journals and to Y Drych. He died 27 November 1932 at Stittsville, N.Y., and was buried at Fairfield, near Remsen, N.Y.
