US Congressman. Born in Prince Georges County, Maryland, he studied at the Albany Law School New York, was admitted to the bar in 1858, then moved to Nevada and began prospecting and mining in 1861. He went into Nevada politics, serving in the Territorial House of Representatives (1862-65), then moved into the Montana and Dakota Territories and practiced law.
