CSA Congressman, Civil War Confederate Army Officer. Born in Fayette County, Kentucky, he moved with his family to the panhandle of Florida in 1825. He became a successful planter and banker. He was an unsuccessful candidate for both Governor of Florida and United States Senate, but in 1861 he was elected to the Confederate Congress.
