In 1738 he was called to the Great Swamp congregation where he served as a faithful preacher until his death in 1748. He never married and was known as an earnest, zealous and modest man. He is reported to have had a number of remarkable visions. The strangest was a vision about his own death.
One morning when he arose he informed the family with whom he lived that the time for his departure had come. He dressed himself in a shroud which he had prepared for the occasion, and asked the family to join with him in singing a hymn. After the singing he delivered a fervent prayer and, reclining on a couch, he quietly breathed his last on this date, March 21, 1748.
