Maj Bernard Hanlon
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1748
Death: Aug., 1823
New York, USA

He was one of those who received and escorted General George Washington through Trenton, when he passed through to be inaugurated as President in 1789.

He was at the head of his artillery company as Captain, and later Major of the First Battalion, Third Regiment.

He settled in the area of Trenton during the Battle of Trenton and Hanlon's Mills soon became a familiar landmark, early publications often referring to the road through Millham to his place. This place was on the site of the Empire Rubber factory, or the Murray factory, as it was better known in the 1920's. Here Hanlon carried on a stone-ware potting manufactory, the pioneer of an industry that had flourished in the vicinity since then to the point of making Trenton "the Staffordshire of America."

He was elected one of the trustees of the First Presbyterian Church on May 4, 1788.

He left Trenton before his death.
