Col John Leonard Hardenbergh
Birth: 1746
Marbletown
Ulster County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 23, 1806
Auburn
Cayuga County
New York, USA

Founder of Auburn, New York. A noted commander in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, Colonel Hardenbergh was known ever after by his military title. He had served as a captain in the 2nd Line, 3rd Regiment during Sullivan's Campaign, and was later promoted. Born into an old and distinguished New York family of Dutch origin, he was a surveyor by profession, and in 1793 built a mill on the Owasco Lake outlet in the northern tier of New York's Finger Lakes region. Here he established the village of Hardenbergh's Corners, which became present-day Auburn, capital of Cayuga County. Originally interred in Auburn's North Street Cemetery, his remains and those of his wife, the former Martina Brinkerhoff, were transferred to Fort Hill after its opening in the mid-1800's.  (bio by: Nikita Barlow)
