Their home, Fernside, situated on the landed estate in Upson County, was a center of social and literary culture where a wide circle of friends from city and country was often entertained [sic] (see "Respess Place, Memoirs and Landmarks of Georgia," by Lucien Knight, State Historian). When the children reached school age the Respess family moved to Barnesville and the plantation home became their summer vacation resort (see "History of Upson County" by Nottingham).

He was an extensive cotton planter, owner of half interest in Swifton Factory on Flint River, and of a controlling interest in the Saulsbury-Respess Bonded Warehouse Company of Macon, GA. He was a popular sportsman. His pack of fox hounds, pedigreed pointer dogs, and thoroughbred horses were the rivals of any.
