Samuel F. Gove

Samuel Francis Gove ( born March 9, 1822 in Weymouth, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, † December 3, 1900 in St. Augustine, Florida ) was an American politician. Between 1868 and 1869 he represented the state of Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives.


Samuel Gove attended the public schools of his home and moved in 1835 with his parents to Georgia, where the family settled in Twiggs County. There Gove worked in trade and agriculture. He was also active in mission. Politically he came into existence only after the Civil War as a member of the Republican Party.

After the re- admission of the State of Georgia to the Union, he was in the fourth electoral district of Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington DC chosen, where he took up his new mandate on 25 June 1868. In the regular congressional elections of 1868 he was confirmed. Since it was him but refused his seat, he could only finish the current term in Congress until March 3, 1869.

In 1877, Samuel Gove was ordained as a minister of the Baptist Church. Between 1879 and his death on 3 December 1900, he was as a traveling missionary for his church go.
