Henry Clay Van Voorhis (May 11, 1852 – December 12, 1927) was a United States Congressman from Muskingum Co., Ohio.[1]


He was born to Daniel and Jane (Roberts) Van Voorhis in Nashport, Ohio.

His father moved to Muskingum Co., Ohio from Washington County, Pennsylvania in 1812 with his parents, and became a member of the Ohio Legislature during the Civil War.

Van Voorhis was educated at Denison University in Granville, Ohio and the University of Cincinnati Law School.

In 1873, he moved to Zanesville (county seat of Muskingum County, Ohio at the junction of the Muskingum and Licking Rivers).

In 1875, he married Mary A. Brown, daughter of Judge William A. and Margaret Brown. They had 5 children: Ada V. (married Thomas Wylie), Dollie M.A. (married Robert S. Black), LTG Daniel (who presided over the mechanization of the US Cavalry), John A., and Margaret.

Political career

When Van Voorhis moved to Zanesville, he became involved in the Republican Political Committee Organization. He was admitted to the bar in 1874. In 1892, he was nominated for 53d Congress. He served in 53rd–58th Congresses, for a total of 12 years. During that time, he was a member of the Appropriations Committee.


In 1885, Van Voorhis became President of Citizens National Bank of Zanesville Ohio. He relinquished the job as President of "The Old Citizens National Bank" between 1892 and 1905 (while he was in Congress), and was reelected to the post in 1905.
