HONEYWOOD, Saint John, poet, born in Leicester, Massachusetts, 7 February, 1763; died in Salem, New York, 1 September, 1798. His father, an English physician who had settled in Leicester, was killed at Ticonderoga in 1776 while surgeon in the army, leaving his son destitute. He was educated by friends, and was graduated at Yale in 1782. In 1783-'4 he taught in an academy in Schenectady, New York, after which he studied law in Albany, and practised in Salem, New York, during the remainder of his life. He was one of the presidential electors that chose John Adams as the successor of Washington. His poems, which treat of Washington's declension of a third term, Shays's rebellion, and other political topics, were published after his death (New York, 1801).
