Theodore Frelinghuysen
Attorney General

  Theodore Frelinghuysen was born in Millstone, New Jersey on March 28, 1787. He pursued classical studies and graduated with honors from the College of New Jersey, which later became Princeton University, in 1804. He studied law under his brother, John Frelinghuysen, and later under Richard Stockton. He was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1808 and set up a law practice in Newark during this time.
  Frelinghuysen was appointed New Jersey Attorney General in 1817. He was reappointed twice and remained in office until 1829, when he resigned to become a U.S. Senator. As a Senator, he led the opposition to the Indian Removal Act of 1830. In 1837, Frelinghuysen was elected the second Mayor of Newark, where he served until 1839.
