He received an appointment to West Point in 1832, but in January of 1833 he was said to be deficient, probably a lack of studying. He came home to South Carolina and his father sent him to Pendleton, South Carolina for tutoring. In October of 1834 he enrolled in the University of Virginia and in 1839 he went with his father to Paris where he would continue his medical studies. He died at his plantation on the Ogeechee River in Georgia.

He was a surgeon in the Civil War who commanded a field hospital with the army of General William Joseph Hardee. He was the father of Edward Richardson Cheves who died on the battlefield of Gaines Mill, Virginia in 1862.
