Richard Dudgeon was born in Tain, Scotland back in 1819. At an early age his family moved to the United States settling in New York City. His profession was a mechanic where he founded an engineering machine shop on Broome Street. The business still exists and Richard Dudgeon, Inc.
He died in 1895, in New York City. What you may not know about Richard is that he received a patent for something that is still in use to this day. That patent was for the hydraulic jack. For you guy, you sure know what that is.
