His wife and posthumous child have sustained a loss which this world cannot repair. The consolation belongs to them that the enjoyments of earth have been taken away to match the prospect of eternity. The husband, wife and child may constitute a family in heaven. Altho death met him in the morning of his days, his triumph over it was as brilliant as had been his brief career. He lived like a philosopher and died like a Christian.

In 1839, a youthful “stranger and without wealth, he commenced a career in Talladega, earning a support by performing the duties of a clerk and at the same time prosecuting the study of law. In 1841, he became a member of the Bar. In 1843, he was returned from Talladega as a member of the Legislature and shortly afterwards was by that body elected Attorney General.

In 1836, he left his home and family and a lucrative practice to serve his country as Lieutenant Colonel of Volunteers in the Florida War and returned distinguished as a soldier and singularly endeared to his companions in arms.
