CROTON HOSE Co. 6 - Gouverneur St. & E. Broadway
Organized July 6, 1837

Jeremiah F. Gillin, who served as a Sergeant in Company F, was credited for saving eight people from a building fire in a tenement house on Division Street on January 3, 1860. He took a leap from the window, after the ladder had been removed, injuring himself so as to require six weeks of rehabilitation.

After his enlistment, Gillin was appointed chief detective to the Union Pacific Railroad, and was later engaged in investigating the Ku Klux Klan with the U.S. Secret Service.
