History of Freeland, Pa.
Freelanders with patents

This list of Freelanders to whom patents have been awarded comes to us from Charlie Gallagher, who was one of the compilers. It's an impressive list! He adds these notes:

a.. The list was initally compiled in 2012.
b.. The list was sorted using Freeland as the patent originator's location.
c.. The list did not include any former Freelander's that may have been granted a patent using another location for the orginator.
d.. The list does not include patents that may have been granted to Companies located in Freeland that the originator was not listed as from Freeland.
e.. The list does not include the entire Freeland Area.  Drifton, Sandy Run, Upper Lehigh and all other surrounding areas,  These will have to be researched and posted at a later date.
f.. We regret any omissions that may have occurred. These can be brought to our attention by emailing to Charlie Gallagher and they will be researched and posted.

Charlie adds: "I would ask that, if possible, you dedicate the "Innovators of Freeland" in memory of:
Robert D. "Chico" Mensinger, (July 1955-March 2008)  Patent 5,300,014
A good friend and one of the finest men I had the pleasure to know my entire life."

Freeland's Innovators !

Patents awarded to Freeland residents (many Patents were issued to Freeland Companies, i.e. Garland, Nautulus, etc. this list is only for Freeland residents). This does not include the broader Freeland Area, as Eckley Coxe had over 100 Patents issued, or assigned, to him.

Patents are in order of the Patent Number; people with multiple patents are all listed at that person's name from their first patent.
