James Farnsworth Pierce (April 8, 1830 in Madrid, St. Lawrence County, New York – July 8, 1905 in Brooklyn, New York City) was an American lawyer and politician from New York.


He was the son of Caleb Pierce, M.D. (1799–1887) and Sarah Emily (Farnsworth) Pierce (1807–1865). He studied law, first in Potsdam, then with Job Pierson in Troy; was admitted to the bar in Albany in 1851; and, going south to recover from lung disease, commenced practice in St. Augustine, Florida in partnership with Isaac H. Bronson. In 1856, he returned to New York, and resumed the practice of law at Canton. He married Anna Maria Redington (1835–1904), and they had six children. He was Clerk of St. Lawrence County from 1862 to 1864.

In 1865, he moved to New York City, and the next year to Brooklyn. He was a Democratic member of the New York State Senate (2nd D.) from 1868 to 1871, sitting in the 91st, 92nd, 93rd and 94th New York State Legislatures.

He was again a member of the State Senate in 1878 and 1879; and again from 1886 to 1889, sitting in the 109th, 110th, 111th and 112th New York State Legislatures.

He was Superintendent of Insurance from 1891 to 1897.[1]

He died of "paralysis" at his home at 7 Montague Terrace, in Brooklyn, and was buried at the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.[2]


James F. Pierce was a fourth cousin twice removed of President Franklin Pierce, their common ancestor being Thomas Pierce (1618–1683).
