== == James Madison, the fifth president, was the last one who plyed a really major role in the founding of the republic, being one of the most important delegates to the Constitutional Convention (he is called the father of the Constitution), one of the authors of the Federalist Papers, and the chief author of the Bill of Rights. If you want to stretch the definition of "founding father" though, then James Monroe, who was an officewr in the Continental Army and a delegate to Virginia's constitutional ratifying convention, although on the Anti-Federalist side, could also count.
