Alexander Gilmore Cattell
Birth: Feb. 12, 1816
Salem County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1894
Chautauqua County
New York, USA

US Senator. After serving in the New Jersey State Legislature in 1840, and as its clerk from 1842 to 1844, he rose to prominence as a banker and financier in Philadelphia, and was instrumental in organizing the Corn Exchange there. When Senator John P. Stocktonís seat was declared vacant due to an election dispute in 1866, he was elected as a Senator from New Jersey to the United States Senate to fill that vacancy, and served from 1866 to 1871. He chose not to run for another term when his tenure ended (his seat was subsequently filled by Frederick T. Frelinghuysen). He was then appointed to be on the inaugural Civil Service commission by President Ulysses S. Grant, serving for two years. He died in Jamestown, New York in 1894. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
