  • Notes 
    • Francis Eppes served as intendant (mayor) of Tallahassee from 1841-1844 and then again from 1856-1857. His first election was largely due to a rise in sentiment against lawlessness, particularly duels among leading men in territorial Florida. In 1856 he donated land and money to designate a school in Tallahassee as one of the first two state-supported seminaries, now known as the Florida State University. He served as president of its board of trustees for eight years.
