He served two terms in the Legislature (1847-1848), where he was recognized as a careful, consistent member, intent upon securing good laws and honest legislation. He exerted a strong influence in his town, and merited the confidence and good will bestowed upon him. He died july 30, 1883.

On October 17, 1837, Mr. Pardee was married to Nancy A., daughter of John G. Satterlee, who was born November iS, 1819. They were the parents of two sons and two daughters: Charles P., George C., Mrs. Cornelia M. Rowan and Mrs. Julia A. Kneeland of New York city. The former was married to George H. Humphrey, who died in 1880; in 1882 she married Jerome Rowan, who was one of the founders of the Bank of Batavia, of which he was the first president, resigning in 1882. He died June 28, 1896. Mrs. Rowan died in Batavia March 2, 1899. She was a very estimable woman, of high intelligence, generous and benevolent, and a conscientious Christian. A member many years of St. James's Episcopal church, she made provision that upon her death a large part of her estate should go to that society, besides making substantial bequests to the Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist and Free Baptist churches, and to the Batavia Relief Association. These generous and pious bequests will keep the name and memory of the giver in perpetual remembrance.
