This is a corrected answer from Wikipedia under the heading of Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar. (September 17, 1825 - January 23, 1893) He was an American politician and jurist from Mississippi. A United States Representative and Senator, he also served as United States Secretary of the Interior in the first administration of President Grover Cleveland, as well as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

***You can also go to the Official site of the Congress to read about him. I think it is Congress gov or bioguide congress gov or something like that.
