John's father died young and there was not money for John to attend college. He studied for the law for several years and passed the bar exam. Later, when a US Senator, he cast the deciding vote admitting Texas to the Union as a slave state, though he was against slavery. [I believe his niece was the wife of Gov of Texas].
