Jacob Hasbrouck DeWitt
Birth: Oct. 2, 1784
Marbletown
Ulster County
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 30, 1867

US Congressman. Elected as a Republican to represent New York's 7th District in the Sixteenth Congress, he served from 1819 to 1821. DeWitt was born in Marbletown, Ulster County, New York, and attended the Kingston Academy. He was a farmer all his life and his single term in the US House of Representatives was the high point of a sporadic political career. His other public offices were as Supervisor of Ulster County (1827, 1840) and as a member of the New York State Assembly (1839, 1847). (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
