NISBET, Eugenius Aristides, jurist, born near Union Point, Greene County, Georgia, 7 December, 1803; died in Macon, Georgia, 18 March, 1871. He was of Scotch descent, and his father, Dr. Janms Nisbet, was a pioneer of Georgia, a member of the convention of 1798 that framed its constitution, and a representative in the state legislature. The son was educated at Columbia college, South Carolina, and at Franklin college, Athens, Georgia, where he was graduated in 1821. He studied law in Litchfield law-school, Connecticut, was admitted to the bar by special act of the legislature before reaching the age of twenty-one, practised in Georgia, and represented his county in the legislature for many years. He was elected to congress as a Whig, and served from 2 December, 1839, till 3 March, 1843, when he resumed his law-practice. In 1845 he was appointed a judge of the newly organized state supreme court. In politics he was a strict constructionist, but supported William H. Harrison in 1840 and Henry Clay in 1844. He was a leader of the American party in 1855, and in 1860 supported the Bell-Everett ticket. He was a member of the state secession convention in 1861, and of the Confederate provisional congress.
