Born Liverpool, England, Apr. 14, 1825; died Topeka, June 20, 1902. Painter, specialized in genre, landscape, portrait. Decorator. Illustrator. Caricature. Came to the U. S. in 1835, when he was 10 and lived in Buffalo, NY with his family. As a young man he moved to Cincinnati, OH and worked as a glasscutter. He played, taught and wrote music for the guitar. He moved to Topeka in 1868 on the advice of his doctor. He settled and opened a music studio and began teaching and regularly presenting concerts. His early hobby of art developed and he began painting landscapes and portraits. In 1869 he did a sketch, “Droughty Kansas,” for some visiting friends from Cincinnati. This work was widely reproduced and influenced many easterners to move to Kansas, launching a career which overshadowed his music. He became prominent as an artist in the 1870’s throughout Kansas and Missouri. In 1876 he helped plan a Kansas Exhibit at Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition and constructed a liberty bell using Kansas Agricultural products for the exhibit. Contributed to Harper’s Weekly, to Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper; illustrated Joseph G. McCoy’s 1874 book Historic Sketches of The Cattle Trade and W. E. Webb’s Buffalo Land (1872). Worked for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad illustrating their magazine, Rocky Mountain Tourist. He traveled extensively in Kansas, New Mexico Territory and Colorado.
