John Fell was a Founding Father who led the resistance against the Loyalists in Bergen County -- and became a prisoner of war as a result and imprisoned in the notorious Provost Jail in Lower Manhattan.
He later ratified the U.S. Constitution as a N.J. delegate. The Celery Farm was part of his property back in the day when Allendale was part of Paramus.
