The fourth Governor of NY and sixth Vice Leader from the United Condition under President Adam Monroe. He notably financed the battle of 1812 at his own private expenditure. He was for the convention that drafted New York’s constitution. When the condition legislature wouldn’t normally pay out to mobilize the militia to greatly help in the Battle of 1812, he got on loans to fund it himself. His grandchildren Hannah and Minthorne got streets called after them in Staten Isle. He was the Vice Leader under Adam Monroe from 1817 to 1825.
