US Congressman. He attended and taught in the Ohio public school system. He was admitted to the bar in 1849 and began to practice law in 1850 in the town of Greenville, Ohio.

He was elected as a Democrat to the thirty-sixth and Thirty-Seventh US Congress from March 4, 1859 to March 3, 1863 and declined to run again in 1862.
