Jared Ingersoll (October 24, 1749
Jared Ingersoll from World Book Ingersoll, Jared, (1749-1822), was a Pennsylvania signer of the Constitution of the United States in 1787. Ingersoll held several state and national offices during a lengthy career in public service. Ingersoll was born on Oct. 27, 1749, in New Haven, Connecticut. He graduated from Yale College in 1766 and became a distinguished lawyer in Philadelphia. His father, Jared Ingersoll, Sr., remained loyal to Britain during the Revolutionary War in America (1775-1783), but the younger Ingersoll joined the patriots' cause. Ingersoll served in the Second Continental Congress in 1780 and became known as a supporter of a more vigorous national government. He was attorney general of Pennsylvania from 1790 to 1799 and again from 1811 to 1817. In the 1790's, he argued cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and helped define several complex constitutional issues. He died on Oct. 31, 1822 LEARN MORE AT THIS WEB SITE: http://www.aolsvc.worldbook.aol.com/wb/Article?id=ar276500&sc=-1 Britnee - I'm a direct descendent of Jared Ingersoll and I can let you in on a few details that might not be included in this forum. He had the distinction of being the only member not to speak a recorded word at the convention. However, he did have a role behind the scenes. Being a prominent attorney of the day the day he had a guiding hand in many issues brought up at the convention. In research for a paper I did in college, I did find that George Washington spent many nights at the home of Jared, which was understandable because another Ingersoll served on Washington’s staff during the Revolutionary War. Being that I have a bias take this with a grain of salt, but Jared was a good Founding Father that because of his nature was does not get the credit he deserves.
