At an early age his family moved to Trenton, Tennessee where he attended private schools and Andrew College. He studied law and after being admitted to the bar in 1872 he established a law practice in Trenton. He continued to practice law after he moved to Marianna, Arkansas in February of 1874. He married Belle Mills and they had seven children. He decided to enter the political arena and was elected as prosecuting attorney for the first judicial district and served as such from 1874 until 1878. During this time he also served for 8 years as chairman of the Democratic central committee of Lee County. He was elected as Mayor of Marianna in 1875, but declined to accept the office.
