About meLewis Morris III (8 April 1726 - 22 January 1798), New York landowner, lawyer, and statesman. Morris, a 1746 graduate of Yale, engaged in agricultural pursuits until 1760, when he was appointed a judge in the Court of Admiralty, a post he held until 1774. Morris served in the New York provincial convention in April 1775 at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, and as a delegate to the Continental Congress 1775-1777 (in which capacity he signed the Declaration of Independence). He held several state and local positions during and after the Revolution, including service as a state senator 1777-1781 and 1784-1788. Morris was a member of the first New York Board of Regents, serving from 1784 until his death. He also sat as a delegate to the state convention which adopted the Federal Constitution in 1788.
