From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jabez Delano Hammond (August 2, 1778 New Bedford, Bristol County, Massachusetts - August 18, 1855 Cherry Valley, Otsego County, New York) was an American physician, lawyer, author and politician.



He practiced medicine in Reading, Vermont, but afterward studied law and followed that profession at Cherry Valley.

He was a Democratic-Republican member of the United States Congress from 1815 to 1817, a member of the New York State Senate from 1817 to 1821, and in 1825 he was appointed one of the commissioners in the settlement of the claims of New York State against the Federal Government.

In April 1825, he was appointed one of three State Road Commissioners, the other two were Nathaniel Pitcher and George Morell. These commissioners had to "explore and cause surveys to be made of a route for a State road from some point on the North River to some point on Lake Erie, through the southern tier of counties."

He was First Judge of the Otsego County Court from 1838 to 1843. He was one of the Regents of New York University from 1845 until his death.
