Isaac Hopkins Bronson
Birth: Oct. 16, 1802
Rutland Center
Jefferson County
New York, USA
Death: Aug. 13, 1855
Putnam County
Florida, USA

US Congressman, Jurist. Elected as a Democrat representing New York in the Twenty-fifth Congress, he served from 1837 to 1839. Details of Bronson's early life are sketchy. He was born either in Waterbury, Connecticut or Rutland, New York, and from 1822 to 1837 he practiced law in Watertown. During his one term in the US House of Representatives he was chairman of the Committee on Territories. Defeated for reelection, Bronson was appointed judge of New York's fifth judicial district (1839 to 1840) before moving to Florida, where he eventually settled in Palatka. He went on to serve as a federal judge for Florida's eastern district from 1840 to 1846, and for the northern district from 1847 until his death. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
