Samuel T. Worcester

Samuel Thomas Worcester ( born August 30, 1804 in Hollis, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, † December 6, 1882 in Nashua, New Hampshire ) was an American politician. Between 1861 and 1863 he represented the state of Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives.


Samuel Worcester attended the common schools and then studied until 1830 at Harvard University. After a subsequent law degree in 1835 and its recent approval as a lawyer, he began in Norwalk (Ohio ) to work in this profession. At the same time he embarked on a political career. In 1849 and 1850 he was a member of the Senate of Ohio. From 1859 to 1860 he served as appeal judges. Politically, he joined the Republican Party, founded in 1854.

Following the resignation of Mr John Sherman Worcester was in the due election for the 13th seat of Ohio as his successor in the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington DC chosen, where he took up his new mandate on July 4, 1861. Until March 3, 1863, he could end the current parliamentary term in Congress. This was marked by the events of the Civil War.

After the end of his time in the U.S. House of Representatives Samuel Worcester practiced as a lawyer again. He also dealt with literary matters. He died on 6 December 1882 in Nashua and was buried in his birthplace of Hollis.
