Going to New York, he pursued his profession in that city for many years. He then went South, where his practice consisted of engineering work for the planters of Louisiana and Mississippi. In 1859 he settled in Memphis, where he became the city engineer and was county surveyor from 1870 to 1884. From this time on his work was largely architectural, his chief characteristic being massive construction, such as storehouses, and he also designed many churches.
