Hedge Thompson
Birth: Jan. 28, 1780
Death: Jul. 23, 1828

US Congressman. Elected as an At-Large delegate from New Jersey to the US House of Representatives, he served from 1827 until his death in office. Thompson was born in Salem, New Jersey. He graduated from the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia in 1802, and became a practicing physician in his hometown. Ill health caused him to gradually abandon medicine for the law and politics. He served as a member of the State General Assembly (1805), State Council (1819), associate justice of Salem County (1815, 1824), and collector for Salem County (1826 to 1828). Thompson died at Salem from a chronic liver ailment. There is a cenotaph in his memory at Congressional Cemetery in Washington, DC. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
