John Forsyth (GA-D) might be the only cabinet member to serve an entire president's term despite having been a holdover from the previous admin. Not captured in the actions below is that Forsyth enlaved people. 

His actions:

Forsyth, John 1819 appt Amb to Spain for Monroe
Forsyth, John 1830 backs Indian removal, responding to Frelinghuysen's public opposition
Forsyth, John 1832 Opposes Calhoun on Nulification
Forsyth, John 1833 backs Jackson admin against censure
Forsyth, John 1834 Confirmed Sec of State for Jackson
Forsyth, John 1837 Stays on as Sec of State for Van Buren for his entire term
