He came to Florida in 1875 and was lead through the wilderness by his spirit guides “Seneca” “The Philosopher” and “The Unknown” to the present location of the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Association.

They instructed him to organize a psychic center on this site. He preempted a claim in 1883 and donated 35 acres of land in 1895. The permanent organization was completed in 1898. This was the fulfillment of a prophecy made when a child that he would establish a spiritualist center in the south.

His psychic work extended
over a period of 73 years.

His watchword “Tranquilidad”
