GEORGE CORBIN WASHINGTON
George Corbin Washington

Biography:George Corbin Washington (August 20, 1789-July 17, 1854) was a United States Congressman from the third and fifth districts of Maryland, serving four terms from 1827 to 1833, and 1835 to 1837. He was also a grand-nephew of U.S. President George Washington.

Washington was born at Haywood Farms near Oak Grove of Westmoreland County, Virginia. He attended Harvard University, studied law, but devoted himself to agricultural pursuits on his plantation in Maryland. He resided for the most part at Dumbarton Heights in the Georgetown neighborhood in Washington, D.C..

Washington was elected to the Twentieth, Twenty-first, and Twenty-second Congresses, serving three terms from March 4, 1827 until March 3, 1833. In Congress, he served as chairman of the Committee on District of Columbia during the Twenty-second Congress. He was not a candidate for renomination in 1832, but was elected two years later as an Anti-Jacksonian to the Twenty-fourth Congress, serving one term from March 4, 1835 to March 3, 1837. He was again not a candidate for renomination.

After his service in Congress, Washington became president of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company. He was also appointed by President John Tyler in 1844 as a commissioner to adjust and settle the claims arising under the treaty of 1835 with the Cherokee Indians. He died in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C., and is interred in Oak Hill Cemetery.
