(1753-1816) Aide to Gen. George Washington during the revolution, McHenry was a physician, signer of the constitution from Maryland and Secretary of War from 1796-1800. Named in his honor was the Baltimore fort that withstood the British bombardment Sept. 13-14, 1814. He purchased, circa 1805, land near here in what was then called Buffalo Marsh and Cherry Tree Meadows, and this settlement took his name.
