Gonna have to do a little research, this biography states he succeeded David Peter Lewis in the Confederate Congress. Another states it was a Thomas Fearn that he replaced.My guess it was Fearn who died on January 16, 1863 but was born in 1789 and did resign from the Confederate Congress in April 1861.
