Born in Charleston, South Carolina, he was ordained a priest for the Dominican order on December 21, 1839. Pope Pius IX appointed Grace bishop on January 21, 1859, and was ordained bishop on July 24, 1859. He was installed as Bishop on July 29, 1859 after a year and a half long period of sede vacante in that see, and resigned on July 31, 1884, succeeded by John Ireland. On September 24, 1889, in recognition of his service as bishop, he was appointed to the title of Archbishop ad personam. On his death in 1897 he was granted the title of Bishop Emeritus of Saint Paul, a title which was slightly modified in 1966 with the addition of the words and Minneapolis.
