Birth: Jun. 24, 1806
Death: Jan. 10, 1882

Mayor of Rochester, New York, 1860-1861. He was the son of Hamlet Scrantom, the first permanent settler in the 100 acre tract which became Rochester, who moved his family to the area in 1812. As a young man he travelled to other towns to try to establish businesses, but returned to Rochester in the 1840's to serve as head clerk in several offices and banks. Nominated by the Republicans for Mayor in 1860, he held office at the outbreak of the Civil War the next spring. After his term as leader of the city, he took over management of the Congress Hotel where he remined until shortly before his death. (bio by: Mount Hope NY)
