John Hanchett Harmon (June 21, 1819 – August 6, 1888) was an American politician who was a member of the Democratic National Committee, the mayor of Detroit, and the publisher of the ''Detroit Free Press''.
John H. Harmon was born in Portage County, Ohio on June 21, 1819. His father, John Harmon, was a printer and published a newspaper in Ravenna, Ohio. The younger Harmon joined his father and learned the printer's trade. In 1838, the younger Harmon travelled to Detroit as the ''aide-de-camp'' of "General" Lucius V. Bierce, a leader of the Hunter Patriots, a group dedicated to ridding North America of the British Empire. In December 1838, Harmon took part in the Battle of Windsor, personally burning the British barracks and the steamer ''Thames''.〔
After the Battle of Windsor, Harmon stayed in Detroit, obtaining a job at the ''Detroit Free Press.'' He became an editor and one-third owner of the paper in 1841, and in 1853 sole owner of the paper. Harmon sold the ''Free Press'' the next year.〔
In 1841, Harmon married Sarah S. Rood.〔 The couple had three children: John Harmon, Emma Harmon, and Mrs. S. H. Bell.〔
