John Jay was born in NYC on December 12, 1745, but grew up in nearby, Rye, NY. Initially wary of the disruption that independence would bring, he devoted himself to the American Revolution. Jay served in the Continental Congress, was a diplomat, wrote some of The Federalist Papers and became the first chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court among a variety of top government posts.
He died in Bedford, NY, on May 17, 1829, at the age of 83.
