In 1842 he built the first practical sewing machine, but never secured a patent for his invention. He was the first naturalist to notice that Stone Mountain contained some organisms not known to flourish anywhere else in the world He wrote Marooner’s Island a story of childhood adventures and several other books while living at Colonial Place in Roswell.
