He removed with his family to Virginia in 1789, and to Ohio in 1797; was admitted to the bar in 1807, and was a democratic congressman from Ohio 1813-16, and state supreme court judge 1817-22. He was postmaster general under Monroe and John Quincy Adams (see ADMINISTRATIONS), was appointed justice of the United States supreme court March 7, 1829, and served until his death. (see DRED SCOTT CASE.) His name was frequently brought before the anti-masons, whigs and republicans as a presidential candidate, but he never received any general party nomination.
