U.S. Congressman. As a student at Princeton College, he studied law, was admitted to the bar of New Jersey in 1802, moved to Dayton, Ohio, in 1804 and practiced law. He was a member of the Ohio State House of Representatives in 1809, prosecuting attorney of Montgomery County, (1813-16) and elected president judge of the court of common pleas in 1817. In 1829, he was elected as an Anti-Jacksonian to the Twenty-first Congress and to the next three succeeding Congresses, serving until 1837. Declining to be a candidate for re-nomination, he resumed the practice of law and was an associate justice of the supreme court of Ohio, until his death at age 69. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
