Felix Grundy, an American statesman, born in Berkeley co., Va., Sept. 11, 1777, died in Nashville, Tenn., Dec. 19, 1840. He was educated for a physician, but studied law, was admitted to practice in 1798, and soon acquired reputation as an advocate. In 1799 he was a member of the convention to revise the constitution of the state, and was elected to the legislature, and in 180G was appointed one of the judges of the supreme court of errors and appeals. Soon afterward he was appointed chief justice of Kentucky, which office he resigned in 1808, and removed to Nashville, Tenn., where he soon ranked as the head of the Tennessee bar. He was elected to congress in 1811, and efficiently supported Madison in the war with Great Britain. He was reelected in 1813, but declined to be a candidate in 1815. In 1829, and again in 1833, he was elected a senator of the United States, and was among the most prominent supporters of President Jackson. In 1838 Van Buren appointed him attorney general of the United States. In 1840 he resigned, and was reelected to the senate, but died before taking his seat.
