Theodore SEDGWICK, a descendant of Major General Robert Sedgwick, was a delegate to the convention that ratified the U.S. Constitution. He served in the Continental Congress, then six years in the U.S. House of Representatives, three years in the U.S. Senate (one year as President pro tem) then three more years in the House of Representatives as Speaker of the House (1799-1801.) The house he built at Stockbridge, MA is still owned by the Sedgwick family, and the location of the famous "Sedgwick Pie" cemetery plot.
