He was chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, 1853-1857, and United States Council to Hawaii (1857-1859) under President James Buchanan.A fine example of Italianate architecture, the Honolulu House was built in 1860. Unique for its wall and ceiling murals, it is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
