U.S. Congressman. He immigrated to the United States, settled in Vermont, studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1845 and commenced practice in Newnan, Georgia. He was a member of the Georgia State Senate, (1855-57) and a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions in 1856. During the Civil War, he served in the Confederate Army, (1861-65). After the war, he was elected to the Thirty-ninth Congress, but his credentials were not presented to the House as the State had not been readmitted to Union. He was later appointed judge of the superior court of the Coweta circuit, serving (1872-80). In 1881, he was elected as a Democrat to the Forty-seventh and Forty-eighth Congresses, serving until 1885. Not a candidate for re-nomination, he practiced law until his death at age 66. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
