From the book published in 1916 "Abbe -Abbey Genealogy In Memory of John Abbe and his Descendants" by Cleveland Abbe and Joseph Genung Nichols

GEORGE EDMUND BADGER, son of Thomas and Lydia (Cogdell) Badger, born April 17, 1795, in Newbern, N. C. ; died May 11, 1866, in Raleigh, N. C. He was graduated at Yale, 1813; studied and practiced law; received his law license by special act of Legislature when 19 ; was elected to the Legislature in 1816; in 1820 was elected a Judge of the Supreme Court, which position he resigned in 1825; was appointed Secretary of the Navy in 1841; was elected a Senator in Congress in 1846, and was re-elected in 1849 for a term of six years, serving on the Committees on Military and Naval Affairs; was subsequently wholly devoted to his profession, visiting Washington occasionally to argue cases in the Supreme Court of the United States. On his retirement from the Senate that body passed a unanimous resolution of regret, the only time such a thing has ever been done.
