US Senator. Born near Connellsville, Pennsylvania, he taught school in Iowa, studied law at the Iowa Wesleyan University, then relocated to Central City, Colorado, in 1862. The following year, he went to Montana, settled in Bannack and became successful in copper mining. As a member of Montana militia, he served as a Major of a battalion that pursued Chief Joseph and his band of Nez Perce Indians to the Bear Paw Mountains of Montana, in 1877. In 1899, he was elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate, serving until 1907. Not a candidate for reelection, he resumed his copper mining and also engaged in railroad interests until his death at age 86. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
