Rector of nearby St. Andrews Episcopal Church, and owner of Magnolia Plantation before,during, and after the Civil War, he redesigned the plantation's famous garden, from its original French style of Louis XIV to its present style of English informality, which has brought it international fame. Reduced from great wealth to extreme poverty by the Civil War, he sacrificed property to erect the existing home upon the surviving first floor of the house burned by Gen. Sherman's Union troops.
