Governor of Louisiana. A sugar planter in St. James Parish, he was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives in 1818 and served until 1826. He served as a judge in St. James Parish from 1826 until 1828, when he returned to the Louisiana House of Representatives. In 1830, he was elected as a National Republican to the Governorship of Louisiana. During his administration, the state was confronted with floods and epidemics. A state penitentiary was built in Baton Rouge, a Board of Public Works was created, and a State Agricultural Society was created. He left office in January of 1835, but was re-elected Governor in 1838. During his second term, imprisonment for debt was abolished and the state was requested to pay off its bonds. He left office on February 2, 1843. In 1842 and 1845, he served in the State Constitutional Convention and was a delegate to the State Secession Convention in 1861. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
