George Marcellus Landers
Birth: Feb. 22, 1813
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Mar. 27, 1895
New Britain
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

Politician. Served as, Member of Connecticut State House of Representatives (1851), Member of Connecticut State Senate (1853) and United States Representative from Connecticut (1875-1879).
Hon George M Landers was born at Lenox Mass Feb 22 1813. His father, Marcellus Landers, was a teacher in Hartford. Receiving a fair common school education, he was apprenticed at 16 years of age in New Britain to Aaron Hart, a carpenter.
He soon entered the craft of journeyman, but with characteristic foresight, he anticipated that New Britain was to be a manufacturing center. He first engaged in that business, with a partner, Josiah Dewey, then by himself in a shop he built on East Main Street. The success demanded a larger business which became incorporated under the name of Landers & Smith, which later changed to Landers, Frary & Clark. Mr Landers acted as president and vice-president of this corporation almost until the time of his death.
He was elected to the House of Representatives three terms and to the State Senate three terms. He was twice appointed Bank Commissioner of the State and was a member of the 44th and 45th Congresses in 1874 and 1876.
