Philp Jeremiah Schuyler was the son of the Revolutionary War general Philip John Schuyler. He was schooled by private tutors, and did not pursue schooling beyond his private schooling. He was engaged in agriculture in Dutchess County, presumably meaning that he managed the farm lands held by the family. He lived in Rhinebeck, New York.
Schuyler entered politics and was a member of the New York State Assembly in 1798. How long he served is not known. In 1817 he was elected as a Federalist to the Fifteenth Congress as a Representative. He served from March 1817 until March 1819. He did not stand for re-election in 1818. In Congress he was preceded by Thomas Grosvenor and succeeded by James Strong.
Following his congressional service he resumed his agricultural activities in Dutchess County. He passed away in New York City on February 21, 1835, and was interred on the Schuyler estate near Rhinebeck, in Dutchess County, New York. Cause of his death was tuberculosis. His remains were later re-interred in Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery in Poughkeepsie.
There is no information on whether he was married or had any children.
