Historian. Educated at the College of New Jersey, graduating in 1825. He later studied law but his feeble health did not allow him to practice. After his recovery he worked as an engineer during the construction of the Petersburg Railroad. In 1834 he moved to Alabama. He taught there for two years at an academy for boys. He then returned to Petersburg and worked for his father, who was the collector of customs in that city. From 1840 to 1843 he owned and edited the Petersburg American Statesman, and in 1849 helped establish the Petersburg Southside Democrat. From 1842 to 1855 he owned and operated a private school in Petersburg. From 1855 to 1870 he served as principal of the Anderson Seminary. He was considered a mild mannered gentleman, but a strict disciplinarian. He was interested in history and visited many old sites and cemeteries collecting documents and manuscripts that furnished the basis for articles that were later published. He also edited many collections of historical information and generously shared his research. He wrote and published many articles on Virginia history, mostly for the Southern Literary Messenger.
