  • Notes 
    • A signer of the Declaration of Independence, twice elected governor of Massachusetts and vice-president of the US under James Madison.
      The Gerrys were well-to-do shipping merchants from Marblehead, Massachusetts

      Vice-president, politician; born in Marblehead, Mass. He served in the Continental Congress and signed both the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation. He unsuccessfully ran for governor of Massachusetts four times before being elected in 1810. In 1812, he signed a bill for senatorial redistricting; the term "gerrymander" arose from the salamander-like shape of a district he carved out to favor his Republican Party. He served as James Madison's vice-president in 1813--14 and was an outspoken proponent of the War of 1812.
