He was the son of Zopher Carpenter (died 1883) and Phebe (Marshall) Carpenter. He attended the common schools and Bedford Union Academy. In 1853, he opened a store in Mount Kisco, and engaged in the coal business. Later he also engaged in banking, and was interested in insurance companies.

He entered politics as a Republican, was Supervisor of the Town of New Castle for 32 years; was at times Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Westchester County; and was County Treasurer from 1897 to 1902.
