Hardenbrook, George H., was born in Lodi, Seneca county, N. Y., May 15, 1837. Richard Hardenbrook, his father, was a native of Hunterdon county, N. J., and married Catherine, daughter of Nathan Smith, of Georgetown, Queen Anne county, Md., and was a manufacturer of boots and shoes in Seneca county until 1844, when he came to the town of Bath and engaged in farming. In 1850 he moved into the village of Bath, as superintendent of the Whiting & McCass foundry, and afterwards purchased the business, being associated with William Sedgwick. In 1857 the plant was destroyed by fire, and Richard Hardenbrook & Sons purchased the old Steuben county foundry of Biles & Owens, which is now run by his son, George H., making a specialty of agricultural implements, mill machinery, and building and repairing engines. In 1862, with Captain Mowers, he raised Co. F, 78th N Y.

Aldine.
