John Ferguson (New York politician)

John Ferguson (died 1832)[1] was the 52nd Mayor of New York City from March to June 1815. He was also Grand Sachem of Tammany Hall and a political enemy of Dewitt Clinton. It is believed that he was appointed mayor under the understanding that he would soon turn over the position to Jacob Radcliff, in return for an appointment as Surveyor of the Port of New York.
