Winthrop Sargent

Winthrop Sargent (May 1 1753 – June 3 1820) was a United States soldier, politician, and writer. In 1789, he married Roewena Tupper, a daughter of Gen. Benjamin Tupper, at the settlement which would later become Marietta, Ohio in the first marriage ceremony held within the Northwest Territory. Winthrop Sargent was a member of the Federalist party; he was Governor of the Mississippi Territory from 7 May 1798 to 25 May 1801.

As a Federalist, Sargent was dismissed from his position as territorial governor in 1801 by incoming president Thomas Jefferson. Sargent took up life in the private sector as a planter in Natchez. He died in 1820 in New Orleans.cite book
