Gales, Joseph -1860

Journalist; born near Sheffield, England, April 10, 1786. His father emigrated to the United States in 1793, and established the Independent Gazetteer in Philadelphia, and in 1799 removed to Raleigh. N. C., where he established the Register. Joseph became a printer, and subsequently a partner of Samuel Harrison Smith, publisher of the National Intelligencer, in Washington, D. C., the successor of the Independent Gazetteer. In connection with William Winston Seaton he made the Intelligencer a daily newspaper. Both partners were efficient reporters, and to their interest and foresight is due the preservation of many important speeches, notably those of Webster and Hayne. Gales died in Washington, D. C., July 21, 1860.
