BATEMAN, Ephraim, United States senator, born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, New Jersey, in 1770 ; died there, 29 January 1829. After receiving a public-school eructation he became a mechanic's apprentice, but, leaving his employment, studied medicine, and afterward was noted in his profession. He was for many years a member of the state legislature, and was elected to congress as a democrat. He was thrice re-elected, serving altogether from 4 December 1815, to 3 March 1823, and was a member of the committees on post-offices and accounts. In 1826, as president of the council of the state legislature, he gave the casting vote that elected him to the United States senate over Theodore Frelinghuysen. A committee of the senate afterward reported that this action was perfectly legal, and he remained in the senate until he resigned in January 1829.
