From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James Gordon (October 31, 1739 – January 17, 1810) was an Irish-born American merchant, soldier, and politician.

He was born in Killead, County Antrim, Ireland, and left in 1758, settling in Schenectady, New York. From that base and from Detroit, Michigan, he traded with various Native American tribes. He served as militia lieutenant colonel in the American Revolution, and, first in 1777, held various legislative offices, serving in both houses of the state legislature, and representing the state in the United States House of Representatives from 1791 until 1795.
