J. M. Quinby and Co.
Newark, NJ

In the late 1800s one of the oldest carriage makers in the United States was J. M. Quinby and Co. They produced horseless carriages beginning in 1834. J. M. Quinby was also the mayor of Newark and a State Senator

J. M. Quinby died in 1874 and the company was operated by his sons who later sold the firm to William W. Ogden and his brother Henry Ogden.

In 1899 and 1900 the J. M. Quinby and Co. produced an Electric Automobile called the Quinby. Only a very few Quinby Electrics were built and those were built to order using components from the Riker Electric Vehicle Co. of Elizabethport, N.J..
