Boston merchant and seaman George Cabot attended the Massachusetts convention that adopted the U.S. Constitution in 1787, then served in the U.S. Senate from 1791 to 1796. His great-grandson was noted historian Henry Cabot Lodge, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1887 to 1893, then in the U.S. Senate from 1893 to 1924. Henry’s wife, Anna Cabot Mills Davis, was the daughter of Admiral Charles Henry Davis and granddaughter of U.S. Senator Elijah Hunt Mills. One of their children, George Cabot Lodge, was a noted poet, whose oldest son was Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., a U.S. Senator from 1937 to 1944 and from 1947 to 1953. (He resigned his seat in 1944 to continue in active duty during World War II.) In 1952, he was narrowly defeated in his re-election bid by John F. Kennedy, then was defeated by Kennedy again in 1960 when Lodge was Richard Nixon's running mate. Ironically, in 1916, Henry Cabot Lodge, Sr. had defeated Kennedy's maternal grandfather, John "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald, for the same seat, and in 1962, Lodge's son George Cabot Lodge II lost to Kennedy's brother Ted Kennedy in his bid for the same seat. (This was the Senate seat that remained in the Democratic column from Lodge's defeat by Kennedy in 1952 until Scott Brown's election in 2010.)
