US Congressman. He was born in Tamworth, New Hampshire and raised in Gilmanton. After attending Union College in Schenectady, New York, he settled in New York City, where he worked in the United States Customhouse and became active in several business ventures. During the Civil War he was active as a contractor providing arms and supplies to the Union Army. In 1864 he moved to Tennessee, living in Columbia and Nashville. Having studied law in New York City, he attained admission to the Tennessee bar and served as Attorney General of the 11th Judicial Circuit from 1865 to 1866 and member of the state House of Representatives from 1867 to 1868. In 1868 he moved to the Arizona Territory, settling in Prescott as a contractor providing supplies to the United States Army and continuing his involvement in numerous businesses, including a store, railroads, ranching and mining. In 1876 he was an unsuccessful candidate for the territory's Delegate to the United States House of Representatives, and in 1879 he served in the Arizona Senate. In 1884 he was the successful Republican nominee for Delegate, and served one term, 1885 to 1887. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1886 and returned to his Arizona businesses. In 1889 he relocated to New York City. He maintained his Arizona residency and was considered for appointment as Governor in 1901, but was not selected. He also maintained his business interests, remaining active until his death in New York City. (bio by: Bill McKern)
