Robert McClellan (New York treasurer)
He was a son of Michael McClellan (d. ca. 1757) and Jane Henry McClellan. The family came to New England when Robert was still a child. His older brother took him to Albany, New York where he became a merchant. In 1771, Robert married Jane Williams in Albany, and they had nine children.
Beginning in 1780, he was elected to the Albany City Council, first as assistant, then as alderman. In 1798, he was appointed New York State Treasurer, a post he held until his resignation on January 31, 1803, after the discovery of a shortage of $33,000 in the Treasury accounts.
