Known locally as “Uncle Ben”, he built a vast fortune, when in 1849 he fitted undertook an expedition and sailed around Cape Horn to San Francisco with a craft packed full of groceries. Arriving there he had little difficulty in exchanging his commodities for gold dust with which he then he bought an interest in San Francisco dock property. This subsequently became very valuable, and he came back to New York and bought much real estate. including in Harlem, and when he died in his 78th year this real estate had increased in value to make him a multi-millionaire. He became quite eccentric in later life, and his house, known as the "Square House” and "Fort Lincoln" situated on 125th Street, between Park and Lexington Avenues, bore this out.

In 1895 it was reported that he grew his beard down to his feet and braided it and kept it inside his clothes. Litigation over his estate lasted over twenty years with over $10M ($300M in today’s value) in dispute.

He built the house, in which he would later live, to spite the developer of a neighboring apartment house who refused to purchase the property for $5,000.
