The U.S. Patent system is a bit confusing, the first American patent was issued in 1646, by the colony of Massachusetts, for a mill for manufacturing scythes. The first patent issued in the United States was for a "Method of Making Potash or Pearl Ash", issued in 1790 to Samuel Hopkins of Pittsford, Vermont, signed by George Washington. The patent examiner was Thomas Jefferson. The number on this patent is X1. The Patent Office had already issued nearly 10,000 unnumbered patents, when a fire destroyed many of the original records in December of 1836. Using private files, the office was able to restore 2,845 patents starting with the X1 number. Patent 1, the first patent issued under the new numbering system, went to Senator John Ruggles of Thomaston, Maine. His invention, patented July 13, 1836, was a cog mechanism for locomotive wheels.
