US Congressman. Born in Salem, New Jersey, he studied law and was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1858. Upon the outbreak of the Civil War, he was commissioned as Captain and commander of Company I, 4th New Jersey Militia on April 27, 1861. His regiment, a three-month enlistment unit, saw service in the defenses of Washington, DC, and in reserve during the July 1861 First Bull Run Campaign. When his enlistment expired by law on July 31, 1861, he was honorably mustered out. He then built up a prominent law practice in his native Salem, and was elected to represent New Jersey's 1st District in the United States House of Representatives, serving two terms from 1875 to 1879. Returning to his law practice, he eventually served as a Judge of the Common Pleas Court. He passed away in Salem in 1919. A member of the prominent local Sinnickson Family, his granduncle Thomas Sinnickson served in the United States Congress during the 1790s.
