Seymour Tyler, D.D., LL.D., b. Sept. 10, 1810; d. Nov. 19, 1897.
Dr. Tyler was connected with Amherst College.
They had 5 children.

Joseph Jackson, b. Mar. 8, 1774; d. Jan. 28, 1855 ; son of Stephen Jackson
and Mary Burwell, his wife.

Col. Joseph Jackson was born in a log house on the north bank of the Rockaway
River, in Morris Co., N. J., about a mile above the present village of Rockaway. He was
educated at the Morris Academy, where he specially studied French and surveying.

There were but five houses in Rockaway at his birth, but by the establishment of various
industries he became known as the founder of Rockaway village. He owned and operated
the Rockaway grist-mill, saw-mill, a store, and two forges, beside other business enterprises.
He was especially active in the mining and manufacture of iron, and entered a part-
nership with his brother William Jackson, in operating a rolling mill at Paterson, N. J.,
and when the Government advertised, in 1820, for a sample 5-ton lot of round iron for the
navy yard at Washington, the sample submitted by Jackson Brothers was accorded the
best, and a contract was made with them for 200 tons. They were the first manufacturers
in the U. S. to make rolled round iron.

Col. Jackson was the means, Nov. 1796, of getting a post-office established at Rock-
away village, and was acting postmaster until removed by Pres. Tyler in 1843. Feb. 26,
i8oi,he was made Major of 1st Battalion, 3d Reg't, Morris Militia, and in 1S04, Colonel of
Reg't. He was in active service in the War of 1812, but resigned his position in 1817. He
was a strong adherent of Gen. Jackson, but late in life became a Whig.

He was Judge of the Common Pleas Court, Morris Co., from 1813 to 1832, and was
a Ruling Elder of the Rockaway Presbyterian Church. For years before his death, he
was sole owner of the Rockaway rolling mills, and had many profitable contracts with
the Government.

water, N. J., an officer of the Revolution, and a member of Congress under Washington's

of Newark, N. J.

After his 2d m. (to Rebecca W. P. Ogden886)_ he carried on the manufacture of iron
at the Hamburg, N. J., forges, and his business sagacity made remunerative a hitherto fail-
ing business, which gave an impetus to this industry hitherto unknown in the county, and
which has been felt ever since.

able cabinet of American minerals. He corresponded with many scientific men at home and
abroad, and was an honorary member of many of the scientific societies of Europe and
America. He was a personal friend and warm supporter of Gen. Jackson, and was elected
to the 24th and 25th Congresses. He died at Franklin, N. J., and is buried in the North

ments in the marine engine. He was the first to apply the principles of the expansive power
of steam. He joined with Capt. Ericsson in constructing the first experimental steamboat
launched upon the Thames, and which, as a token of his respect, Mr. Ericsson named the
"Francis B. Ogden." He died and was buried at Bristol, England, the following being
inscribed upon his monument:

"Sacred to the memory of Colonel Francis Barber Ogden, a member of the Society
of the Cincinnati, and Consul of the United States of America for this Port. Born at Boon-
ton in the State of New Jersey, U. S. A., March 3, 1783 : Died at his residence in this City

Judge Elias B. Dayton Ogden«° 2 was one of the most prominent of Gov. Aaron
Ogden's children, and was born at Elizabethtown, N. J. He graduated at Princeton at 19
years of age, and immediately began the study of law. He was licensed as an attorney in
1824, as a counsellor in 1829, and was made Sergeant-at-Law in 1837, being the last lawyer
in New Jersey who ever received that appointment. He began his legal career in Paterson,
N. J., which at that time was a small, struggling town on the Passaic river, but which rose
rapidly in importance from its growing factories. Dayton Ogden (as he was generally
called) had many competitors in his chosen profession, but soon became an able advocate,
and secured a large clientage.

Paterson was then included in Essex Co. and its lawyers were obliged to attend court
at Newark, the county-seat. Soon after receiving his counsellor's license, young Ogden
was appointed Prosecutor of the Pleas, the most important office of the kind in the state.
In the prosecution of his duties he displayed great assiduity and unusual legal talents. The
criminal business of the county was very large, requiring unusual labor and time, and
obliged him to be in Newark four times during the year. But while Mr. Ogden always per-
formed his whole duty as Counsel of the State, he succeeded in retaining all his private
practice, and his numerous clients never complained of his inattention to their interests.
This condition of affairs was the result of his great industry and care in the conscientious
discharge of all his legal duties. He filled the office of Prosecutor for two terms.

His political party early recognized his abilities, and twice elected him to the State
Legislature. In 1844, when the best talent of the state was required irrespective of party
affiliation, he was chosen a member of the Constitutional Convention.

He was appointed Associate Justice in 1848, and reappointed in 1855. At the expira-
tion of his second term, Gov. Charles S. Olden, knowing the great worth of Mr. Ogdbn's
legal talent, departed from the usual political procedure, and reappointed him, although of
the opposite political faith, and thus did honor to Judge Ogden and to himself.

His judicial opinions were rendered after full and careful examination, and were always
regarded as sensible and just. Among them was one in which he denied the right of judges
of a State court to interfere for the release of a prisoner held by the judgment of a Federal

Judge Ogden was a man of sound judgment and sterling common sense; to his
fellow members of the bar, he was genial and affable; as a judge he was painstaking and
conscientious; and during his long term of office he enjoyed the respect and confidence of
the whole community. At the expiration of his last term, he removed to Elizabeth, and
occupied the homestead of his father, Gov. Aaron Ogden, where he was born, and where he
died in 1865.
