From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charles Stebbins (1789 Williamstown, Berkshire County, Massachusetts - 1873) was an American lawyer and politician from New York.


He graduated from Williams College in 1807, then studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1810, and commenced practice in Cazenovia, New York. In 1819, he married Eunice Masters (1794-1871).

He was a member of the New York State Senate from 1826 to 1829. When Governor Van Buren resigned to become Secretary of State in March 1829, and Lieutenant Governor Enos Throop succeeded to the governorship, Stebbins, was elected President pro tempore of the State Senate and was Acting Lieutenant Governor of New York. He was not re-elected to the State Senate for the next term.

From 1830 to 1840, he was one of the three Bank Commissioners, appointed by the Governor.

He was buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Cazenovia.
