Henry Blair (1807–1860) was the second African American inventor to receive a patent. He was born in Glen Ross, Maryland, U.S. in 1807. His first invention was the Seed-Planter, patented October 14, 1834, which allowed farmers to plant more corn using less labor in a smaller amount of time. On August 31, 1836[3] he obtained a second patent for a cotton planter.
