GENERAL NOTES
He was an unsuccessful candidate to the United States House of Representatives in 1864.

He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection to the United States Senate in 1894.

Progressive Men of Minnesota 1897 states that he was also elected to the Minnesota Legislature in 1858. He doesn't appear on the list of members from the first or second legislatures. Thus we have no record that he served at that time. See the note in the Legislative Manual for the State of Minnesota 1881, p. 180. It states that due to the protracted session of 1857-58 the winter of 1858-59 meeting was unnecessary.

Religion provided by Progressive Men of Minnesota 1897.
