Description:
Jesse Wharton (July 29, 1782 July 22, 1833) was an attorney who briefly represented Tennessee in each house of Congress.

Biography

Wharton was born in Albemarle County, Virginia and studied law and was admitted to the Virginia bar. Moving to Tennessee, he was elected to the United States House of Representatives from that state in 1806, serving from 1807 to 1809. He was later appointed a United States Senator upon the resignation of George W. Campbell, serving in that body from March 17, 1814 to October 10, 1815, and then returning to his law practice. In 1832 he was named to the Board of Visitors of the United States Military Academy. He died in Nashville, Tennessee the next year and is buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery.

(Some of the biographical detail in this article is derived from the public domain Biographical Directory of the United States Congress. In turn, some of the material from that source is derived from the book Tennessee Senators as Seen by One of Their Successors by Senator Kenneth McKellar.)

His grandson, Wharton Jackson Green was a U.S. Congressman from North Carolina.
