Encyclopedia > Jonathan Elmer

Jonathan Elmer (29 November 1745 - 3 September 1817) was an American politician, of the Pro-Administration (Federalist) Party.


Elmer was born in New Jersey in 1745. He was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1769 after studying medicine. He practiced medicine in Bridgeton, New Jersey until he became High Sheriff of Cumberland County in 1772. During the American Revolutionary War, he served as an officer of a light infantry company.


Elmer was a delegate to the Continental Congress three times: 1777 to 1778, 1781 to 1783, and 1787 to 1788. The College of New Jersey (now known as Princeton University) made Elmer a trustee in 1782. He served in that position until 1795. The state legislature of New Jersey appointed Elmer to the United States Senate for the term of 4 March 1789 to 3 March 1791. His health declined after that, and Elmer died in 1817.


Elmer's younger brother, Ebenezer Elmer, and Ebenezer's son Lucius Elmer were members of the United States House of Representatives.
