A noted horticulturist, he originated the Elberta peach at his Willow Lake Nursery. three miles east, 1870- 1875. His invention, in 1875, of a peach shipping refrigerator and of the rigid mortised-end peach crate made practical the safe transit of fresh fruit. He developed many varieties of peaches and other fruits and was the first Georgian to grow and ship peaches on a commercial scale.
