He removed to Kentucky when a child, and was appointed a midshipman in the navy, 19 July 1847. His first cruise was made in the" Cumberland." He was promoted to lieutenant, 16 September 1855, and in 1857 became assistant professor at the U. S. naval academy.

He refused the offer of a high command in the Confederate service, applied for active duty, and was assigned to the command of the gunboat "Commmodore Perry," with which vessel he took part in the attack by Com. Goldsborough that preceded the capture of Roanoke island on 7 February 1862. In October he took part in the shelling of Franklin, Virginia, and afterward-commanded the "Perry" in the North Carolina waters. He was killed while in command of the gunboat "Miami" in battle with the ironclad "Albemarle " in Roanoke River.
