INTRODUCTION. 



The task of the genealogist, in groping his way amid the dusty records 
of the past, is much like that of the American Indian, in pursuing an ob- 
scure trail through a tangled wilderness. An acute faculty of perception, 
and a keen and practised eye, must note and scrutinize every obscure foot- 
print, every rustled leaf, every bent twig ; — now progressing rapidly 
under a clear light, and guided by sure tokens; and anon, suddenly arrested 
by a total absence of all further signs, and forced hopelessly to abandon 
the trail, long and patiently pursued ; until perchance again, some new and 
unexpected way-mark greets his eye, inspiring fresh pursuit. 

It is easy to see why the vicissitudes, occurring in the progress of such 
a labor, should be highly exciting, as well as perplexing, and also, why it 
is, that a relish for it is sometimes acquired so ardent as to become almost 
a passion. Indeed, were it not for this kind of inspiration, but few, if any, 
of the valuable family genealogies, of which the last few years have been 
so prolific, would ever have seen the light; more especially as their prepar- 
ation involves such a vast amount of patient labor as well as much expense, 
a remuneration for neither of which, can ever be reasonably expected. 

The absence of any settled rule or custom, in the early towns of Con- 
necticut, requiring the public registration of births^ marriages and deaths, 
and the consequent silence of the records thereon, in so many cases, is a 
source of great embarrassment to the genealogist. Much of this data must 
now be gathered from ancient grave stones, old deeds, family papers and 
other fugitive memoranda, accidentally preserved and luckily discovered; 
while even much more that would have been most valuable, is now for- 
ever lost. 

And, I am constrained to add, that my most formidable and vexatious 
embarrassments have occurred just where I least expected them. The 
ancient records were, at least, ever ready to disclose such information as 
they had ; but the living descendants, to my surprise, have generally 
evinced a strange reticence to my urgent inquiries ; not one in five of my 



6 INTRODUCTION. 

letters and circulars eliciting any response whatever. Had the simple 
facts I sought, and which, in most cases, ten minutes labor would have 
supplied, been promptly sent me, nearly every family line could have been 
perfected, and at an earlier day. Most of the information, thus unavail- 
ingly sought, I have been enabled, after much delay and expense, to ob- 
tain through outside agencies, but quite too much remains unsupplied. 

The prevailing indifference to ancestry or kinship, which seems a pecu- 
liar mark of our family, I can not regard as a commendable trait of char- 
acter. That frame of mind which is entirely careless as 

" To whom related, or by whom begot," 

is not a wholesome one ; and from the judgment of those of the clan, who 
attach but little importance or value to this family Memorial, I appeal to 
their own posterity, confident that they will better appreciate the motives 
and labor, involved in its preparation. 

To this general indifference there are, however, many honorable excep- 
tions ; and to those genial spirits whose ready zeal has lent such essential 
aid, and whose warm, fraternal sympathy in the labor, has encouraged 
and cheered me on, my most grateful acknowledgments are due. 

There is another reflection, altogether a pleasant one. The family, as 
a whole, is an honorable and good one ; ranking quite above the average, 
in moral and social position. Standing as I have been, for several years, 
at the focal point of a widely extended family correspondence ; gathering 
in the rays which have come to me from every State and Territory of the 
Union, I have been highly gratified with the abundant evidence of general 
intelligence, moral worth, and social standing, which has greeted me from 
every branch of the sept or clan. Although among us "one star differeth 
from another star in glory" the constellation is an effulgent one. AVe 
have also the gratifying assurance that our cis-atlantic progenitor, James 
Morgan, was an honest man ; fearing God and keeping His command- 
ments; honoring his King and serving his country, in high and important 
civil stations, in his day and generation ; and his posterity have not dis- 
graced the proud inheritance of his simple virtues. 

The illustrative portraits have been selected from the various branches 
of the family, and are faithful copies from photographs of the respective 
parties represented. Of the general character of these portraits, in 
physique and intellectual expression, I have only this to say ; that if any 
American volume of this kind, has ever exhibited a finer looking galaxy 
of representative heads, I have not yet seen it. For my own gratification, 
I have had them all set in an appropriate frame, with a copy of our oldest 
coat of arras, in proper colors in the center; — a family picture which I shall 
preserve and cherish, I confess with no little pride, as well as pleasure. 



INTRODUCTION. 7 

Nearly twenty-five years ago, circumstances excited my curiosity to 
trace back my lineage, if possible, to ray first American ancestor. But as 
no one had ever before made even a partial attempt, and no record or 
family tradition concerning him had been preserved, I found the subject 
involved in such deep obscurity, that I was four or five years in hunting 
up the trail, and verifying, by unequivocal testimony, my pedigree from 
James Morgan, of New London; and in 1851, I j)rinted a little pamphlet 
of this pedigree for private circulation among my own branch. This 
fact, when established, only gave me new zest for further inquiry, and the 
purpose began to grow upon me to trace down again, from James, all his 
male descendants, in their various diverging branches ; and this purpose 
I have since pursued, steadily, silently and alone, with almost a passion, 
and with what success, is shown in this family volume. 

Having brouglit these various lines down to the living generations, 
by the light alone of the ancient records, grave inscriptions, and other 
fragmentary links of evidence, gathered up with a zeal and patience akin 
to that of " Old Mortality," I issued a thousand or more circulars, and 
opened a wide correspondence by letter, appealing for family data to 
enable me to complete the modern branches down to the present time. 
The general neglect, with which that appeal has been met, has already 
been alluded to. I can account for it only by the fact, that the5e branches 
had become so utterly separated and alienated from each other, owing to 
the oblivion of all family history or tradition among us, that we had lost 
all interest in our common clanship. If this effort to remove this- cloud of 
oblivion, and to recover our common history and origin, shall have the 
pleasant effect of again fraternizing the sept, and awakening new emotions 
of veneration for our common ancestry, 1 shall feel a double pride and 
pleasure in sending it down to our posterity, associated with my name. 

Fully impressed with the importance of accuracy in a work like this, I 
have labored carefully to attain it; but it can not be reasonably expected, 
where so many names and dates are involved, that no errors, either in the 
record itself, or in transcribing, transfering, or printing, shall have crept 
in. More than 5,000 different persons are named in the volume, many of 
whose names are frequently repeated. Add to these the mass of occur- 
ring dates, and, in some measure, the caution and vigilance requisite to 
secure accuracy in each, can be appreciated. There may, in some cases, 
seem apparent errors, where really none exist ; for it often happens that 
authorities disagree ; members of the same family persisting in giving 
different dates ; and sometimes the family register, the town record, and 
the tomb stone, each giving a different date for the same event. In such 
cases I have followed what appeared to be the best authority, often clearly 



8 INTRODUCTION. 

verifying the true date by collateral circumstances. From a lack of 
carefulness in preparing the inscriptions of age upon tomb stone?, and 
especially from the uncertainty upon the subject in cases where the par- 
ties have settled and died in sections distant from their nativity, and there- 
fore isolated from the original records, the discrepancy between the true 
age, and the age thus inscribed, is a matter of much more frequent occur- 
rence than is generally supposed. 

And there may, possibly, be errors in some of the lines of descent, owing 
to the frequent occurrence of similar names of cotemporary date; as, for 
example, there were no less than eight Williams of the fifth generation, 
who were all about the same age, and settled in the same locality, several 
of whom had children whose names were also alike: ami it has been some- 
times an exceedingly laborious and perplexing problem to determine 
satisfactorily, from the records, to which particular family of antecedent 
Williams these children severally belonged. Every family line has, how- 
ever, been carefully verified, and it is believed that each line of descent 
will be found reliable. 

I think I may claim, for this work, a fuller statement of dates, and a 
more minute and complete detail of statistical facts, than is found in any 
other similar volume; and to accomplish this has indeed been by far the 
most laborious and difficult part of the task. Apprehending that this first 
effort to trace our early ancestry will also be the last and final one; and 
fully conscious that the inexorable "tooth of time" will soon demolish 
what is left of the fast-decaying records and other materials, I have sought 
very diligently and patiently to recover all that can now be saved, con- 
cerning our fathers, for future preservation. It would have been, compar- 
atively, an easy task, when the public record of the will of an early ances- 
tor, names for example, his wife, Mary, and children, John, Isaac and 
Hannah, to rest with these names only, as is usually done, and to follow 
up their history. But this by no means satisfied my purpose. What was 
the surname of wife, Mary? Whose daughter? When married and 
when did she die? What other children had they, who had died perhaps 
prior to the will, and therefore not named in it ? What their names ? 
When born and when did they die? Who and when did they marry? 
and what the history of all their descendants ? It will be seen, at a glance, 
that a wide and laborious field of research is opened by this class of in- 
quiries ; and as the public records often afford no light, old family papers, 
letters and memoranda, must be resorted to, with a scrutiny, patient and 
persevering. But the satisfaction I now feel in this unusual complete- 
ness, more than compensates for the extra time and labor bestowed. 



INTRODUCTION. 9 

The generations are arranged separately, and follow each other in their 
order, as indicated by the running head title ; but the tenth generation, 
few in number, is included under the title of the ninth. 

The individual descendants, whose either parent was a Morgan, are num- 
bered in consecutive order; the children of daughters, always in italics; 
but grand-children of daughters or their further descendants, are not num- 
bered. Sons, for further history, are carried forward to the next genera- 
tion, with their proper number suffixed in parenthesis. Such further notice 
of daughters and their descendants, as is given, follows immediately after 
the family register in which they first occur. It should therefore be noted, 
that the children of daughters belong to the generation next succeeding 
that under which they are found. Any particular lineage may be easily 
traced, either upward or downward, by simply referring, alternately, to 
the marginal numbers, and the numbers in parenthesis, of the line required. 
Take my own line for example, page 144, where N. H. is found with its 
No. (970) in parenthesis. This No. refers back to marginal No. 970, 
page 81, where N. H. is found to be a son of William A. who is No. (375,) 
in parenthesis. This in like manner refers back to marginal No. 375, 
page 45, where William A. is found again as a son of William, No. (163,) in 
parenthesis. This refers back to marginal No. 163, page 33, where he is 
found the son of William, No. (46,) in parenthesis, and this William is in 
the same manner found on page 25, a son of John, No. (4,) in parenthesis, 
who was son of James, No. 1, page 22. 

The degree of kinship between any two of these descendants may also 
be readily found, by tracing both lines upward in like manner, until they 
unite in a common ancestor, and then noting, in a third column, the several 
degrees of kinship from that common ancestor, downwards, as in the fol- 
lowing example ; beginning with the highest numbers at the bottom. 

What is the degree of kinship between Samuel Morgan, of Albany, No. 
(857) page 137, and myself, N. H. M. No. (970) page 144? 

John Morgan, (4) page 25, — common ancestor. 

James, (44) page 32, William, (46) page 33 — brothers. 

Samuel, (155) page 43, William, (163) page 45 — 1st cousins. 

Jonas, (388) page 73, William A. (375) page 80— 2d cousins. 

Samuel, (857) page 137, Nathaniel H. (970) page 144— 3d cousins. 

These examples, I trust, will render the plan of arrangement perfectly 
intelligible to all; and the solution of similar problems in kinship between 
different branches and descendants, may be a source of gratification and 
amusement. See also page 244 of Appendix. 

The abbreviations are the usual ones, viz. ; b. for born ; d. died ; m. 
married ; s. son ; dau. daughter ; chi. child, or children ; set. settled ; res.

10 INTRODUCTION. 

The dates are given in " Old Style," as found on record, down to Sept. 
1751, when the "New Style" was adopted in England; since then, where 
the dates were evidently continued in Old Style, I have endeavored to 
reduce all to the present notation. In the double dating, found in the early 
records of New England, between Jan. 1 and March 25, thus : Feb. lOth, 
169f for 1699, I have followed the later date. The "Puritan year," as 
it was called, commenced with March 25th, which was termed "first 
month," April "second month," &c. ; hence these double dates. 

A genealogy of dry names and dates, can have but little interest to the 
general reader. It is said that when Doct. Noah Webster had got his 
first American Dictionary into print, he sent a copy to an old friend, not 
expecting a very erudite examination. In due time his friend acknowl- 
edged the compliment, with the remark, that the book seemed to abound 
in good words enough, but that he could not get the run of the story. The 
same criticism may be applied to volumes of this kind ; and yet a writer 
in the N. T. Evangelist, eloquently says : 

"We were looking carelessly over a genealogy of the Minot family, in 
the second number of the New England Genealogical Register, when 
suddenly our eyes were suffused with tears, as they rested on the follow- 
ing sentence, in the catalogue of the children of Capt. John Minot, who 
died in Dorchester, 1669." 

"Martha, b. 22 Sept. 1657, d. single, 23 Nov. 1678, age 21. She was engaged to be 
married, but d. unmarried, leaving a will in which she directed that at her funeral her 
betrothed husband, ' John Morgan, jun. be all over in mourning, and follow next after me.' " 

"What a history is there in these few words about Martha Minot, who 
lived two centuries ago ! The mind runs back in a moment, to those times 
when almost all New England was a wilderness ; to those days of the old 
Indian wars, when no man could be a captain without being a man of 
some rank and consequence. Just after the close of King Phillip's war, 
when the settlements of New England were all in peace, Capt. John 
Minot's daughter, Martha, twenty-one years of age, and having come into 
possession of her share of the estate of her father, had plighted her troth 
to one she loved and expected to marry, when disease fastened upon her 
young frame and would not be repelled. In the chill November air, 
when 

'' The melancholy days were come, the saddest of the year;" 

she faded like a leaf. And at her burial there followed — nearer than 
brother or sister — nearest of all to the hearse — the one, whom of all others 
she most loved; from whom to part had been to her more painful than the 
death-pang; and who had been in her thoughts till "the love light in her 
eye," was extinguished in death. That single item in her funeral direc- 
tions, that "John Morgan, jun. be all over in mourning and follow next 
after me," tells the whole story." 

Nothing seems, at first sight, less interesting, or less instructive, than a 

genealogical table — a mere register of names and dates. But such a 

passage as that which is here quoted ; so picturesque, so suggestive, so 



INTRODUCTION. 1] 

toucliing, so dramatic — when it occurs in the midst of these dry records 
throws out an electric light at every link in the chain of the generations. 
Each of these names, in the table, is the memorial, perhaps the only me- 
morial, of a human heart that once lived and died — a heart that kept its 
steady pulsations through some certain period of time, and then ceased to 
beat, and mouldered into dust. Each of these names is the memorial of an 
individual human life, that had its joys and sorrows, its cares and burdens, 
its affections and hopes, its conflicts and achievements, its opportunities, 
wasted or improved, and its hour of death. Each of these dates of " birth," 
"marriage," "death!" Oh! how significant! What a day was each of 
these to some human family, or to some circle of loving human hearts. 

Our Name — its Origin and Antiquity. 

In preparing this work I have made but little research for anterior 
transatlantic history. The name itself suggests its early Welsh origin, and 
history amply corroborates the suggestion. " Dixon, on Surnames," Bos- 
ton edition, 1857, "for private distribution," thus translates it: 

Morgan, (Welsh,) By sea, or By the sea ; and in his "Supplement,'' 
1858, Canada West, he adds that, ^''Big head, is a better interpretation, 
although it can be literally translated By sea, from Ceann mor," (Scotch.) 
Another plausible suggestion is, that it is derived from the Welsh words, 
More can, signifying Sea horn. And still another theory, which at first 
appeared to me to be the most obvious and probable of all, attributes its 
origin to the Anglo Saxon words, morgen, or morgan, for morning; the 
name denoting generally, an " Eastern Light ;" more accurately perhaps, 
a light or glow coming out from an Eastern sea. But this theory involves 
the anachronism of tracing to a Saxon root, a name now known to be older 
in Wales than the advent of the Saxon race or language in the British 
Islands. Its origin is undoubtedly Celtic. 

Of its eminent claim to great, even the very highest antiquity, as a 
surname, there is no room for doubt. It was not only in common use, as 
such, at the date of the Norman Conquest, as appears from entries upon 
"Domes Day Book," and "Battle Roll," but for centuries before that 
event. Lower, in his " Dictionary of Family Names," has this para- 
graph ; and this is the earliest instance of the use of a surname in Eng- 
land or Wales, which I find recorded in any history. 

"MORGAN; — a Welsh name, of high antiquity. The founder of the 
Pelagian heresy, in the 4th century [about A. D. 360,] was a true 
Welshman, a monk of Bangor. His name was Morgan, which signifies? 
"o/ the sea,'* and this was correctly latinized Pelagius." All other au- 
thorities agree in giving this name a like antiquity. 

The general use of surnames was not assumed in England until about 
A. D. 1070, and was then introduced by the Normans, under William, the 



12 INTRODUCTION. 

Conqueror; though some occasional hereditary surnames, among the old 
Anglo-Saxon and Welsh families, and among them our own, had existed, 
as is seen, for many centuries earlier. In Woodward's " History of Wales 
from the Earliest Times," accounts are given of several sovereign Welsh 
Princes, and petty Kings, of the name of Morgan ; famous fellows in 
war, in their day, and formidable barriers against Anglo-Saxon domina- 
tion and encroachment ; some of them living as far back as A. D. 400. 
To one of these ancient Kings, Morgan, of Gla-Morgan, about A. D. 725, 
is accredited the invention and adoption of the " trial by jury ;" which he 
called "The Apostolic Law;" for, quoth our regal and pious namesake, — 
as Christ and his twelve Apostles, were finally to judge the world, — so 
human tribunals should be composed of the King and twelve wise men. 
And this, it is seen, was a century and a half prior to the reign of " Alfred 
the Great," who is generally accredited as the first founder of this form 
of trial. " Honor to whom honor is due." 

CONSANGUINEI. 

There is an error in the popular notion that the transmission of a family 
name, transmits also its peculiar kinship, or corresponding relation by 
blood, or family stock. We say, that we are of the Morgan Hneage and 
blood. True ! as to the mere name, — but not at all true, as to the Mor- 
gan blood. It may seem a little unj^racious to explode this pleasant fal- 
lacy, but the truth is, that we inherit no more of this blood than we do 
that of a thousand other bloods of different names. The son of the first, 
original, pure Morgan, would have been but a half blood; partaking 
equally, in theory at least, of the blood of his mother; and his sons, though 
bearing the distinctive name, would have inherited but one-fourth of the 
distinctive blood. Had the four grand-parents of our first American ances- 
tor, James, been severally the first of their race, new creations of pure and 
unmixed blood, he himself would have been but a quarter-blood Morgan; 
and of equal kinship with each of his other three grand-parents. His de- 
scendants, of the second generation, only l-8th blood; of the third, l-16th; 
of the fourth, l-32d; of the fifth, l-64th ; of the sixth, l-128th ; of the sev- 
enth, l-256th; of the eighth, l-512th; of the ninth, l-1024th; and of the 
tenth generation, now living, only l-2048th parts of the Morgan blood; all 
the other 2047 parts being derived from other sources. In twenty gen- 
erations, or a period of about 600 years, computing the usual average of 
thirty years to a generation, the consanguinity, or relationship by blood, 
becomes less than one drop in a million ; the distinctive name alone re- 
rnaming. Exceptions arising from occasional intermarriages, may, in 
some few cases, vary the rula; but not favorably, for the direct tendency 
of such marriages is to deteriorate, and not to improve the blood. 



INTRODUCTION. 



13 



"Pride of name," and "pride of blood," are thus seen to be very differ- 
ent sentiments. The one, when founded upon an eminent and virtuous 
lineage, is not only laudable, but virtue inspiring ; the other, a baseless, 
shallow conceit, without a shadow of foundation for its support. 

Surely this fact ought effectually to silence every vain-glorious boast of 
nobler physical, mental or moral endowments,— or "better blood," derived 
from any mere agnatic or paternal line of ancestry, than mingles in com- 
mon veins. This pretentious, but empty bubble, bursts, as is seen, upon 
the slightest touch. 

But as surely, on the other hand, when a name, which has been borne 
steadily aloft, in honor, through a long line of virtuous ancestry, is trans- 
mitted to us to wear, thus adorned with all these accumulated memories, it 
is our imperative duty to sustain it with true and manly port and bearing ; 
to bear it still aloft and in honor; and he, who is beyond the reach of these 
noble and inspiring influences, is indeed a degenerate scion, and all un- 
worthy of his name. 

Family Coat of Arms. 

Several of my correspondents have alluded to traditional "coats of 
arms" of the Morgan name, and some rude copies are still preserved, 
which, although differing from each other in artistic appendages and 
adornment, and sometimes in crest, are all alike in color of shield and 
main device ; an escutcheon in green, bearing a lion, rampant, in gold. 

At the risk of seeming pretentious of some special attainment in 
heraldic lore— a pretense which might excite a smile around my fire- 
side, united in by myself, I nevertheless feel forced by these numerous 
inquiries to venture a few words upon this subject; and to show, to the 
curious in such matters, that our family can boast, not only in common 
with almost every family in our land, of its "traditional coat of arms," but 
of real, genuine, well authenticated ones, " as plenty as blackberries." 
Burke, in his "Encyclopedia of Heraldry," describes no less than fifty- 
five different coats of arms, which have belonged by grant, to various per- 
sons of our family name; and Berry, in his "Encyclopedia Heraldica," 
gives thirty-six ; many of them in addition to Burke's list ; from which 1 
select a few, as samples, giving under each, in parenthesis, a pretty free 
translation, as best I can, of the heraldic terms.

It is seen that the last two are identical in description of armorial de- 
vice and bearing, and as our American progenitor, James, came from the 
immediate vicinity of Monmouthshire, near the border line of Wales, a 
fair presumption is raised that, this " traditional" coat of arms, is the legiti-

mate inheritance of our particular family. The copy before me has, how- 
ever, added to it, probably by the fancy of some ambitious artist, a highly 
ornate scroll border in gold; crest, a helmet with closed vizor; shield 
and helmet crowned with a floral coronal, green and red ; with the family 
name inscribed on the scroll at the bottom, in place of the usual motto; the 
whole, making rather a showy display. See also pages 93-96 and 193. 

After the foregoing free translation, it may not be necessary to explain 
further, and yet it may serve to render it a little more clear, by observing, 
that the short terms, or abbreviations used above are, in heraldry — or, for 
gold — ar. argent, silver — sa. sable, black, — gu. gules, red — az. azure, blue — 
vert, green— tenviQ, orange — ppr. proper, or of natural color and form. 

If now there are those of our family, eager for heraldic display, the fore- 
going samples, all fully authentic, are freely proffered for their selection; 
and if too fastidious for this assortment, they are respectfully referred to 
Burke and Berry, before cited, and to Edmundson and other authorities, 
where they will find armorial devices, belonging to the name of Morgan, 
amply sufficient in variety to satisfy the most capricious taste, and the 
highest aspiration, even should they require a different " coat of arms," to 
display upon each and every button of their jackets.. 

As for myself, however, if I am to exercise the privilege of displaying 
a coat of arms, emblazoned on shield or panel, or graven on seal or signet, 
or of holding it filially enshrined in heart or memory, let it be this j —

"Hear me for my cause." 

On the spot where our first American ancestor reared his 
humble abode, in the ancient land of the Pequots, now the 
town of Groton, and where an unhrohen succession of his line, 
each hearing his own honored name of JAMES MORGAJf, 
have continued to dwell, even unto this generation; there, on 
that hallowed spot, repose the ashes, not only of himself and 
of his ^ood wife, MARGERY, hut also of his children, and 
grand-children ;— the patidarchs and mothers of us all. Time 
has well nigh ohlit crated from the little, rude and crumhling 
head stones the name, the date, and the story; hut hy the

J^ow is the day, and ive are the men, to marh more suita-

JAMES MORGAN OF NEW LONDON, 



AND HIS DESOEH'DAlSrTS. 



"Like leaves on trees the race of man is found; 
Now green in youth, now withering on the ground. 
Another race the following spring supplies ; 
They fall successive, and successive rise. 

So generations in their course decay ; 

So flourish these when those have passed away." 

Speech to Diomede, Homer, Book VI. 

James Morgan, the common ancestor of a numerous family now scat- 
tered widely over nearly or quite, every state and territory of the United 
States, was born in Wales, in 1607, but in what precise locality our honest 
progenitor first saw the light is uncertain, though probably in LlandafF, 
Glamorgan Co. The family appears to have removed from Llandaif to 
Bristol, Eng. on the opposite side of Bristol Cliannel, a short time at least, 
perhaps a few years, prior to 1636. The name of his father is unknown, 
but there is some traditionary evidence that it was William.* 

That year, 1636, in the month of March, he and two younger brothers, 
John and Miles, sailed from Bristol and arrived at Boston, Mass. in April 
following. 

John Morgan, his next younger brother, who from tradition appears 
to have been a high churchman and to have exceedingly disliked the aus- 
terity of the Puritans, left Boston in disgust for more congenial society in 
Virginia, soon after their arrival. How far the Morgans of Virginia are 
descended from him I am unable to say. 

Miles Morgan, the youngest brother, born in 1615, on his arrival at 
Bo;?ton, or soon after, joined a party of emigrants, mostly from Roxbury, 
of whom Col. Wm Pyncheon was at the head, and founded the settlement 
of Springfield, Mass. 

* See William. No. 46. 



18 MORGAN FAMTLY. 

He is said to have been under 21 years of age at the commencement of 
this settlement, and to have suppressed the fact of his minority in order to 
share in the drawing for house lots, which minors were not privileged to 
do. It is certain that he drew a house lot and afterwards built upon it ; 
and it was the homestead of himself during his life, and of his descendants 
for many years after. It was situated upon the south side of " Ferry 
Lane," and in 1845 was sold by the Brewer family to the Conn. River 
Railroad Co. ; their tracks now covering the original lot, and their repair 
shop standing upon the site of the old Morgan homestead. 

He married, about 1643, Prudence Gilbert, of Beverly, Mass., who was 
a fellow passenger with him in the voyage from England. Of this court- 
ship and marriage, an interesting and curious account is preserved. He 
had 8 children by this marriage, 4 sons and 4 daughters ; and his wife, 
Prudence, dying 14 Nov. 1660, he next married Elizabeth Bliss, of 
Springfield, 15 Feb. 1670, dau. of Thomas, by whom he had 1 son only. 
His children by Prudence were, Mary, b. 14 Dec. 1644; Jonathan, 16 
Sept. 1646; David, 23 July, 1648; Pelatiah, 17 May, 1650; Isaac, 17 
March, 1652; Lydia, 8 Feb. 1654; Hannah, 11 Feb. 1656; Mercy, 18 
May, 1658 ; and by 2d wife, Nathaniel, 14 June, 1671. 

This family of Miles Morgan* has numerous descendants in New Eng- 
land and the western states. The wife of James Goodwin, Esq. of Hart- 
ford, Pres. of the Conn. Mutual Life Ins. Co. and her brother Junius S. 
Morgan, banker of London, one of the celebrated firm of George Peabody 
and Co. are among these descendants. Their father, Joseph Morgan, was 
the long and widely renowned hotel keeper at Hartford. Homer Morgan, 
banker and broker of N. Y. city, is also a descendant. 

Tradition has preserved many anecdotes and events illustrating the 
prowess and sagacity of this old Nimrod and his five stalwart sons in early 
Indian warfare. In 1675, when Springfield was attacked and some thirty 
dwellings, besides barns and other buildings, were burnt by the Indians, a 
desperate attempt was made upon the dwelling of this dreaded veteran and 
his sons, but all advances were met with such cool intrepidity and deadly 
aim, from every window and loophole, by these practiced marksmen, that 
the astounded savages were forced to retire, leaving numbers of their fore- 
most warriors dead upon the field, whose bodies they dared not attempt to 
recover from under the sure aim of the fatal rifle. One of these sons, Pe- 
latiah, was the next year, 1676, killed by the Indians, on the west side of 
the river, at what is now Chicopee, age 26. 

Miles Morgan died 28 May, 1699, age 84 years. 

* See Appendix. 



GENERATION I. > 19 

James Morgan, the elder brother, and our lineal ancestor, may have 
settled first at Plymouth according to doubtful family tradition, but when 
he removed there, if at all, or how long he remained, or of his history 
while there, I have no account. 

Wherever he settled at first, he is found in Roxbury, near Boston, before 
1640. That year, Aug. 6, 1640, he married there, Margery Hill, of Rox- 
bury. His eldest daughter, Hannah, was born there 18 May, 1642, and 
all his 5 other children, except perhaps the youngest, who d. in infancy, 
were also probably born there. He was made a freeman there 10 May, 
1643. He is named as a resident there in the inventory of Jolm Graves, 
1646, and was a freeholder there as late as 1650, the same year that he 
removed to Pequot, (now N. London,) and had a houselot assigned him 

there. 

It has been heretofore supposed, by myself as well as others, that James 
Morgan was one of the party of emigrants called the " Cape Ann Compa- 
ny," who came to N. London in 1650, from Gloucester, Cape Ann, Mass. 
consisting of the Rev. Richard Blinman and several members of his society 
and church at Cape Ann. Miss Caulkins, in her very faithful, able and 
interesting " History of New London," has considered him as one of that 
Cape Ann party ; but the evidence is now decidedly against it, for in addi- 
tion to the facts above recited, showing him to have resided at Roxbury 
for at least the ten years prior to his removal to N. London, we have the 
following evidence, showing quite conclusively, as it appears to me, that he 
was never a resident ot Gloucester. Babson, in his minute and excellent 
" History of Gloucester," gives from the town records a full nnd complete 
list of all the early proprietors and settlers of that town from its commence- 
ment down to 1650, but makes no mention of his name. He also gives 
the names of all those who removed from Gloucester to N. London about 
1650, 13 in all, but there is no James Morgan among them. I am there- 
fore fully persuaded that he was a settler and freeholder at Roxbury, and 
thence in 1650 removed to N. London. 

Early in that year he had lands granted him at Pequot, as the N. Lon- 
don records show, which were soon after occupied by him as a homestead, 
"on the path to New street," [now Ashcraft street;] and a further. entry 
upon the record shows that "James Morgan hath given him about 6 acres 
of upland, where the wigwams were, in the path that goes from his house 
towards Culvers, among tlie rocky hills." These tracts were located near 
the present third burial ground, in the western suburbs of the city of New 
London ; a location sterile and dreary, and which in a few years was aban- 
doned by its occupants for homes and broader lands of fairer promise, on 
the east side of the river Thames. 



20 MORGAN FAMILY. 

He continued to occupy this homestead on the path to New street, or 
" Cape Ann Lane," as it was called, in honor of the Cape Ann company, 
who chiefly settled there, until about March, 1657. On the 25 day of 
Dec. 1656, he sold his homestead and removed soon after, with several 
others, across the river, upon large tracts of land previously granted them 
by the town, upon the east side, now the south part of Groton. James 
Avery, William Meades, and Nehemiah and John Smith, who also had 
grants of land adjoining to him, were among the first settlers, and the 
earliest resident farmers upon the east side, now Groton. Grants of land 
had been made from time to time after 1652-3, by the colony at Pequot, 
with a liberal hand, upon the east side of the river, comprising the fertile 
regions of what is now the southern portions of Groton, and these lands 
were soon after occupied generally by the several proprietors. 

May 17, 1649. The General Court or Colonial Assembly at Hartford, 
" graunted that ye bounds of ye plantation of Pequett shall be foure myles 
on each side of ye Great Riuer [Thames] and six myles from ye sea 
northward into ye country — Provided that ye aforesaide bounds bee not 
distributed to less than forty familyes." 

March 11, 1657, by act of the " General Court," the settlement at Pe- 
quot was named " New London in memory of ye renowned Citty of Lon- 
don," and embraced not only what has since been divided and subdivided 
into several towns on the west side of the river, but also what are now the 
towns of Groton and Ledyard, on the east side. 

It was u{)on the east side, as we have seen, that James Morgan early 
settled, and in a rude log cabin, with his wife and family of three sons and 
a daughter ; and this territory, made the separate town of Groton, May, 
1705, and again divided, by setting off the town of Ledyard in 1836, has 
ever been, and still remains the prolific hive of our name and family. 

He was a large proprietor and dealer in lands ; distinguished in public 
enterprize; often employed by the public in land surveys, establishing 
highways, determining boundaries, adjusting civil difficulties as a magis- 
trate, and ecclesiastical difficulties as a good neighbor and a Christian man, 
in whom all appear to have reposed a marked degree of confidence and 
trust. 

He was one of the "townsmen" or selectmen of N. London for several 
years, and was one of the first " Deputy's" sent from N. London plantations 
to the General Court at Hartford, May session, 1657, (at which date he 
deposed his age to be "about 50 years;") and was nine times afterwards 
chosen a member of that grave and important assembly, the last time in 
1670. His associates and compeers composing the General Court or 
Colonial Assembly, in May, 1657, when he was first chosen, were

The names and places above in brackets, are not found in Colonial 
Records, but I have taken much pains to supply them from other sources, 
in order to show historically, who they really were, and what towns or 
plantations then composed the colony of Conn, and were represented. It 
is seen that Southampton, on Long Island, was one^of these plantations. 

To this carefully selected body of men, was intrusted the whole sove- 
reign power of the colony, and the administration of its government, in 
every department, civil, criminal, ecclesiastical and military; embracing 
original jurisdiction of the most trifling as well as most heinous offences 
and causes of action, and the minutest details in every department. 

James Morgan seems to have impressed this grave body of men with a 
high sense of his sterling honesty and integrity of character, and it appears 
that in a controversy between the General Court and the N. London plan- 
tation, about boundaries and jurisdiction, it was ordered that the matter 
should be submitted to three arbiters, mutually agreed upon. N. London 
at once named their own townsman, James Morgan, really a party in their 
own interests, but nevertheless the General Court as promptly accepted 
him, and without naming another, agreed to submit to his sole decision, 
which when made, seems to have satisfied all parties. 

He was an active and useful member of the church under Rev. Richard 
Blinman's ministry, and his name is prominent in every important move- 
ment or proceeding. 

" James Morgan, Mr. Tinker and Obadiah Brown, are chosen to seat 
the people in the meeting house, which they doing, the inhabitants are to 
rest silent." Minutes from the record. 

In 1661, he was one of a committee of the General Court to lay out the 
bounds of N. London, " on the east side of the Great River." 

In 1662, he was one of a committee to contract " for building a house for 
the ministry," at New London. 

From about this time he signs his name " James Morgan senior of New 



22 GENERATION II. 

London," — his oldest son James, afterwards Capt. James, being then near 
21 years of age. 

This year, 1662, his list on the town assessment, stands the third highest 
in amount; and among the tax payers of that year, about one hundred in 
number, only seven had a list exceeding £200. James Morgan's list was 
only £250, but this was a large estate in those primitive days. 

The spot where he first built his house in Groton in 1657, and where he 
ever afterwards resided, and where he died, is a few rods southeast of the 
present dwelling (1868) of Elijah S. Morgan, about 3 miles from Groton 
Ferry, on the road to Poquonoe Bridge ; and this patriarchal homestead 
from that day down to the present occupant, has descended by inheritance, 
through an unbroken line of James Morgan's, for six generations. And it 
is worthy of notice, in connection with this fact, that for eight generations 
as they hereinafter succeed each other, in regular order of individual pre- 
cedence, each one is headed by the name of James Morgan. 

He died in 1685, aged 78 years, and his estate was divided soon after 
his death among his four survivino: children.

Capt. JAMES, (3) b. 3 Mch, 1644, s. of James, 
ra. "Mary Vine of Old England," Nov. 1666, died 8 Dec. 1711, age 68. 
His wife Mary died in 1689, of the ''throat distemper," so called, a terri 
ble epidemic which prevailed throughout the country that year, especially 
in the months of July and August, visiting nearly every family and carry- 
ing consternation and death in its trail. She was born in P^ngland in 1641, 
and was 48 years old when she died. After her death he married 2d wife 

Hannah , born in 1640, who d. in 1711, aged 71, a few days only 

before his own death, but after the date of his will, in which he calls her 
his " dear and loving wife." 

His will is dated in Groton 25 June, 1708, and approved in probate 22 
Jan. 1712. In it he bequeaths to his "dear and loving wife Hannah 
Morgan," his "horse and chaise," barn, and orchard by it, and " the lower 
field this side of the cross fence which joineth south brook," to enjoy during 
her life. To his son James, his "field;" one half the barn and all his land 
at home, subject to the joint control and use of his widow, so long as she so 
remained. Also to James a lot "in the plain," near the salt marsh, "on 
the north side of the island." To his son William, "the land he has 
already a deed of," and 100 acres and one little island in Packanacock 
plain," that is, my sons Jas and Wm shall have equally." To his " four 
daughters, Mercy, [record of birth says Mary,] Hannah, Elizabeth and 
Jerusha," all his cattle, horses and sheep, to be equally divided between 
them. To his " grandson James Morgan," his saddle, bridle and short gun, 
and to his "grandson Wm Morg n," his musket. 

He was an active member and one of the two first deacons of the first 
church in Groton ; was the principal magistrate, and transacted the chief 
part of the civil business around him, for many years. At the first town 
meeting held after the town was incorporated, in Dec. 1705, he was the 
moderator, and was chosen first townsman or selectman. He was moder- 
ator of nearly every town or society meeting until near his death in 1711, 
and after that for many years his place as moderator was supplied by his 
two sons, Deacon James and Lieut. John, sometimes the one acting and 
sometimes the other. He was chosen captain of the first " train band" in 
Groton, in 1692, under an order of the Governor and Council, authorizing 
a military company to be formed there, and had been then two years a 
captain and commander of the " dragoon" force of New London county, 
under a special commission from the General Court. 



24 GENERATION III. 

Like his father he was one of the Deputies to the General Court from 
New London from 1689 to 1700, and afterwards one of the first Deputies 
from the new town of Groton, in 1706; and for several years was a Com- 
missioner to advise and direct the Pequot tribe of Indians in the manage- 
ment of their affairs. 

The military titles of these early days, even down to that of ensign, or 
sergeant, were esteemed as marks of high distinction, and from their pecu- 
liar importance, and the care and caution with which the officers were 
chosen, very justly so. These infant plantations were surrounded by hos- 
tile tribes of Indians, overwhelming in numbers; exposed constantly to the 
inroads of prowling bands, often irritated and always treacherous, and their 
very existence as well as peace and safety, depended much upon the per 
sonal character, the wise sagacity, prudent counsel and conduct, and the 
cool intrepidity of these chosen military guardians. Hence it was the early 
practice, when the leading officers of these " train bands" were to be chosen, 
to open the proceedings by solemn proclamation and prayer, and some- 
times a special sermon for the occasion was prepared and preached to the 
company by their minister. 

Capt. James lived and died upon the old patriarchal homestead of his 
father James, already described.

and died in 1712, aged 67. In his will dated 23 Aug. 1711, proved 12 
Feb. 1712,he names his wife Elizabeth and 13 of his children as then liv- 
ing, but it is singular that he makes no mention of his son Joseph, born 
1701, who afterwards settled in what is now Preston, m. Ruth Brewster 
and reared a family of children. The record shows that the probate of this 
will was appealed from, and in the litigation which followed, this Joseph is 
mentioned as one of the parties. I had a reference to the case and in- 
tended to examine it, but lost or mislaid the reference. He also like his 
father and brother James, was a prominent public man, Indian commis- 
sioner and adviser, deputy to the General Court in 1690 from New Lon- 
don, and in 1693-4 from Preston.

after him, is now owned and occupied by Albert G. Ayres, Esq., whose 
mother, Abby, was a dau. of Daniel Morgan, (313.) He was among the 
first settlers of Preston, then a part of Norwich, and in 1686, was one of 
the petitioners for its separation as a town. It was set oflP from Norwich 
Jan. 1687, and that year Owaneco, Indian sachem, executed to him and

generations of Doctors of the Perkins name, of marked ability and emi- 
nence in their profession. Doct. Elisha Perkins, of New London, after- 
wards of New York, the inventor of the celebrated " Metallic Tractors," 
which for a time made so much noise in the medical world, as a remedial 
agent and cure for diseases, was one of her descendants. The " war of the 
doctors" about the merits of this invention, was exceedingly fierce and 
sharp, at home and in Europe, and gave birth to " Terrible Tractoration ; 
a Poetical Petition, by Christopher Caustic," published in London ; one 
of the keenest and wittiest brochures of poetical satire in the English 
language.

GENERATION IV. 

" Stern tide of human Time ! that know'st not i-est, 

But, sweeping from the cradle to the tomb, 
Bear'st ever downward on thy dusky breast, 

Successive generations to their doom." Scott. 

Deacon JAMES, (8) b. 6 Feb. 1667, s. of James 2d, 

m. Hannah , who was the mother of all his 4 children, and who 

died about 1720. He next m. Anna , b. 1684, who died his widow, 

17 June, 1751, age 67. He lived on the old noted homestead of his father 
and grandfather, in South Groton, and died there, 4 May, 1748, age 81. 
He, like his father, was an active and useful man in all church and civil 
affairs, drafting and taking acknowledgments of deeds, wills, and other 
legal instruments, as the principal and almost sole acting magistrate, and 
until a short period before his death, his name appears generally as mod- 
erator in all town or society meetings. In his will dated 29 March, 1745, 
he names the four children which follow, and as this will relates to and 
describes the patriarchal old homestead alluded to as having descended 
through six successive James Morgans in lineal order, and was evidently 
drawn up by himself, I give it entire. 
" In the name of God, Amen ; 

I, James Morgan, of Groton, New London Co. being weak in body, but 
of sound mind and memory, do give unto my loving wife, one third part 
of my moveable estate, to be hers so long as she remains my widow. My 
will is that she improve and enjoy the eastermost part of my dwelling, that 
is to say, the old room, the bed room, the milk house and the cellar, and 
also the chamber over, and the garret. Also that she improve, possess 
and enjoy, during her widowhood, the tract of land butted and bounded as 
follows : beginning at the brook near my house, where the stones are laid 
to draw water, thence running in a direct line to the south bars of the east- 
most of my orchard, till it bear northwardly, and so northwardly with the 
stone wall and ledge that make my field fence, till it comes to the end of a 
piece of stone wall standing on the top of the ledge, thence running about 
southeast on a ledge, to a heap of stones, lying on the south part of the 
ledge, thence about southerly to a wild cherry tree which stands by the 
brook, at the first bounds, which tract of land is supposed to contain about 
1 4 acres, more or less. Also the benefit of all the fruit growing in the 
orchard, included in the bounds above, and also the liberty to pasture her 
creatures in summer season, in my great pasture, during her widowhood. 

Also it is my will that my wife shall take one of my servants, which she 
pleases, at inventory price, in pai't of her thirds. 



GENEEATION IV. 29 

I give unto my son James Morgan, all my lands and buildings in Groton, 
excepting as above given to my widow, he my son, paying the legacies as I 
shall direct, within one year after my death. 

I give unto my son Daniel, 10 pounds, to be paid him by my son James, 
and one-half my wearing apparel ; he my son Daniel having already had 
his portion out of my estate. 

I give to my daughter, Mary Gallup, 150 pounds, to be paid by my son 
James ; and also one-third of my moveable estate. 

I give unto the heirs of my daughter, Anna Owen, deceased, 150 pounds, 
to be paid them by my son James ; also one-third of my moveable estate. 

I appoint my son, James Morgan, my executor of this my last will and 
testament. 

March 29, 1747. James Morgan, [seal.]" 

The above bounds are readily cognizable at the present day, and the 
location has been already described in the notice of its original occupant, 
James 1.

95. Anna, about 1700, m. Rev. John Owen, 25 Nov. 1730. 

Anna, (95) m. Rev. John Owen, the second minister of Groton, 25 Nov. 
1730. He was ordained 22 Nov. 1727, and continued his ministry in the 
same church until his death in 1753. He was liberal and charitable in 
sentiment and conduct, and was sometimes thought to be so tolerant to- 
wards those who differed from him in doctrine, as to expose him to criti- 
cism and censure from the more rigid. But his course was ever peaceful, 
and his life a useful one. His grave stone in the old burying ground at 
Poquonoc, bears this significant inscription. 

" The Reverend and Pious Mr. John Owen, the second ordained minis- 
ter in Groton, died Lord's day morning, June 14, 1753, in ye 55th year 
of his age." 

"God's Faithful Seer." 

He is said, but upon doubtful authority, to have been a native of Ireland, 
but more probably was a descendant of .John Owen, of Windsor, Ct., born 
1624. He had by Anna 5 children, viz. 

96 Anna Owen, born 1731, died 1734; — 97 Mary Owen, 1734, m. Sim- 
eon Miner; — 98 John Owen, 1736, grad. Yale Coll. 1756, never married, 
died 1801 ; for many years town clerk and teacher of the grammar school 
at New London ; — 99 Anna Owen, again, 1739 ; — ^and 100 Mahitahel 
Owen, 1741.

then New London, was founded, and their four elder children were bapti- 
zed there by the Rev. Gurdon Saltonstall, afterwards governor of Connec- 
ticut. When the first church was established in Groton, 8 Nov. 1704, he 
was chosen one of the deacons, and the births of his later children are re- 
corded there on the first records of the town. He died 25 Dec. 1750, 
aged 82, and his widow, Margaret, died in 1755, and her estate was set- 
tled that year.

126 Mary Belton, born 1739; probably no other children. 



GENERATION IV. 31 

Capt. JOHN, (38) b. 10 June, 1667, s. of John, 
m. Ruth Shapley, dau. of Benjamin and Mary (nee Picket) Shapley, of 
Groton, settled in Groton, and died between the date of his will 30 May, 
1744, and its proof in Probate, 16 March, 1746, aged about 79. His wife, 
Ruth, died earlier, as she is named as his deceased wife, in his will, as also 
his dau. Ruth Brewster, deceased. All his other children are named as 
then living, except Experience, who probably died young. He left a large 
estate in lands and chattels, the latter of which he bequeathed to his daugh- 
ters, but all his broad acres were given to his only son, John, and the eldest 
male heir in succession from him, in perpetual entail and undivisible to 
the end of time. 

The following extract from his will may gratify those who are curious 
to learn the notions which were quite common in that day, regarding the 
entailment of estates. 

" I give unto my only and dutiful son, John Morgan, all my lands that 
I hold by deed from my honored father, and also all the lands that I pur- 
chased of the town of New London, * * * by entails, that is to say, to him 
during life, and then to his eldest son, then surviving, and to the eldest 
male heir of my said son's eldest son, and so on in right line down through 
the eldest male heir, to the end of tinte, and never to be divided in case 
such male heir doth not fail." 

He was chosen Lieut, of the first military company or " train band" of 
Groton, 30 of April, 1692, at the same time that his uncle, James Mor- 
gan, was chosen Capt. and he succeeded his uncle as Capt. 8 Oct. 1714, 
which office he held until 12 Oct. 1730, when Lieut. Christopher Avery 
was chosen in his place.

GENERATION IV. 33 



WILLIAM, (4G) b. 1693, s. of John, 

m. Mary Avery, dau. of Capt. James Avery, jun. of Groton, 3 July, 1716. 
He (lied Oct. 1729, age 36, and his wife, Mary, b. 1696, long outlived 
him, and died April, 1780, age 84. 

There is a tradition that this AVilliam used to say that his father, John, 
had a very old little book, in which was written the name of " William 
Morgan, of Llandaff," (Wales,) and dated before A. D. 1600, who he said 
was the father of our first James, the emigrant. 

There are other circumstances which strengthen the probabilities of this 
tradition. This William had also a pair of gold sleeve buttons of antique 
make, and having WM. rudely but plainly stamped on each, which were 
said to have come down as an " heir loom" from William, of Llandaff, and 
which came into my own possession from ray father, William A. (375), and 
were long held by me as a precious relic, until stolen a few years ago. 
By great effort I discovered a trace of them soon after, but all too late to 
save them from the crucible of an innocent purchaser, by whom they had 
been melted with a common mass of old jewelry.

Capt. JOSEPH, (50) bap. 27 April, 1701, s. of John, 

m. Ruth Brewster, dau. of Nathaniel Brewster, of Duxbury, Mass. 8 May, 
1735. He died in Preston, where he ever resided, 24 May, 1764, age 
63. In his will dated at Preston, 1762, proved 21 Aug. 1764, he names 
4 sons and 3 dau. as then living. His wife, Ruth, survived him, living to 
the age of 96 years, the latter part with her dau. Mary Noble, in Canaan, 
Ct., where she died and was buried in 1807. She was b. 9 Dec. 1711, 
and was evidently a direct descendant of Elder William Brewster, of the 
" May Flower" company, whose son, Jonathan, first settled in Duxbury,

one of the graduates in the class of 1702, but he was probably not a regu- 
lar graduate, and the degree of A. B. was doubtless conferred upon him as 
an honorary one, for according to the " History of Greenwich," Conn, he 
was settled over first church, Greenwich, in 1697, and in 1700, dismissed 
and settled over second church, Greenwich. He was also a regular 
preacher in Bedford, Westchester county, N. Y. in 1699, and was ordained 
by the Fairfield county association in 1700. From 1704 to 1708, he was 
again the minister at Greenwich, Ct. In 1709, he was settled as pastor

of the Presbyterian church in Freehold, New Jersey, and in 1728, was 
charged before the Synod with "practising astrology, countenancing pro- 
miscuous dancing, and transgressing in drink." These charges were not 
sustained. He resigned, however, and took charge of the two churclies, 
at Hopewell and Maidenhead, N. J. and in 1736, was again charged with 
intemperance, and suspended from the ministry, but was restored again in 
1738, "on the intercession of many good people." He was a preacher of 
considerable note, and several of his discourses and sermons were pub- 
lished ; among them, one on the death of his eldest son, Joseph, a graduate 
of Yale College, 1723, and died the same year; a "Reply to a Railer 
against the doctrine of Election," 1724 ; "Sin its own Punishment," 1728; 
and "Love to our Neighbors," third edition, 1749. The sermon on tlie 
death of his son was entitled " A Discourse at Freehold, in New Jersey, 
Upon the Sorrowful Occasion of the Death of the Young and very Hope- 
ful Joseph Morgan, of Yale College, B. A. who departed this Life tlie 
28 of Nov. 1728." It was printed by Samuel Green, at New London, and 
presents nothing very striking, either in thought or style of expression. 

In his letters dated at Freehold, in 1721 and 1722, he speaks of his two 
sons, one age 17, and the other 1 1, "as good scholars," and "one other son 
a little older;" this last evidently the Joseph whose death is above alluded 
to. Efforts have been made by several others as well as by myself, to 
trace the history of this Rev. Joseph Morgan to its close, and a further 
account of his posterity, but hitherto without success. 

CHILDREN. 

178. Joseph, about 1702, died 28 Nov. 1723, graduate Yale College, and 
at least two other sons, 179 born about 1705, and 180 about 1711, and 
perhaps other children ; no further traces of either of whom have been 
found unless the Doct. John Morgan, professor in the Medical College, 
Philadelphia, whose history is given by Doctor Titus Morgan, [see 
APPENDIX,] was from this Joseph, either a son or grandson, an hypoth- 
esis which seems probable.

Stonington Probate, names his wife, Mary, and all his children except 
Mary and William, as then living. His widow, Mary, was living, and 
signed a deed as late as 31 March, 1796. His father, WilHam, in 1749, 
just before his own death, gave this son, Solomon, a deed of the family 
homestead in Groton, containing 250 acres of laud, and he probably lived 
and died upon the place. It passed again by deed from him to his oldest 
son, liev. Solomon, of Plainfield, in 1783, who never occupied it, and who 
afterwards conveyed it to his brother, Nathan. His tomb stone in the old 
family grave yard on the original patriarchal homestead bears this tribute 
to his memory: "Esteemed for his integrity, peaceableness and fidelity, 
and his Christian life and character."

Ephraim Woodbridge who m. Hannah Morgan (41) was settled in 1704, 
and Rev. John Owen, who m. Anna Morgan, (95) was settled in 1727. 
His ministry over this church continued until Nov. 5, 1798, over 29 years, 
when the state of his salary, totally inadequate to support his large family 
of young children and an invalid wife, led to a dismissal. " His subsequent 
life was filled with wanderings, trials and removals," and he died in 1824, 
in Ohio, aged 79. He and Anna had 11 children, viz. — 217 Anna Kin- 
ney, born 1771, (m. Aaron Avery, and had Nancy and Ellsworth;) — 218

m. Sarah Cobb, 17 April, 1728, settled in Groton, (now Ledyard,) d. Feb- 
1771, age 71, and his wid. Sarah d. in 1780. His will is dated 15 Feb. 
1771, proved in Stonington probate, 12 April, 1771, and mentions his 
wife, Sarah, and all the following children, except Elkanah, as then living. 
It is apparent from other indications that Elkanah was dead before 1764, 
and probably died early in life. 

He was chosen Ensign of the N. East Co. of Groton, 11 Oct. 1736. 
Lieut, of the same Co. 26 Sept. 1738, and in 1844, Sept. 27, Captain ; it 
being at the last date called the 4th Co. of Groton. When chosen Ensign, 
in Oct. 1736, Thomas Mumford was chosen Captain, and Wm. Williams, 
Lieut. Eight of the leading citizens of Groton, among them Capt. John 
Morgan, father of the Ensign, sent a remonstrance to the " General Court 
against granting commissions to these officers, because, as they allege, 
1st, The two chief officers are young men of the church of England, 
2d, Illegal votes were cast. 3d, The young men of the company were 
deluded with liquor. 4th, Many dissatisfied will enlist in the troop. 5th, 
The society is in difficulty on account of the church of England, and they 
are about to settle a minister." 

The connection between choosing these officers and settling a minister, 
is not very obvious to the present age, at first view, but it should be re- 
membered that our good old puritan ancestors, having at this period in 
their history, quelled all fear of the Pequots, were now greatly alarmed at 
the inroads of another, almost equally dreaded foe. Rev. Samuel Seabury, 
their first minister, after preaching among them ten Sabbaths, four at the 
house of this Capt. John Morgan, and four at the house of his brother, 
deacon William, gave notice of his becoming a convert to the Episcopal 
church. That at once terminated his stay among them. His successor, 
the Rev. Mr. Punderson, ordained 29 Dec. 1729, after preaching accept- 
ably for five years without exciting suspicion of his faith or doctrines, as- 
tonished them all, on the first day of January, 1734, by suddenly avowing 
himself also a convert to this same "church of England." His connection 
was of course at once severed, and for the two years following they were 
without any minister. And now, after this sorrowful experience, they 
were just on the eve of settling the Rev. Andrew Croswell, (subsequently 
ordained 14 Oct. 1736,) as their third perilous experiment; and it should 
not be considered a subject for very flippant persiflage, or severe censure,

if they were a little alarmed, lest the influence of their military leaders, as 
an open foe without, uniting with the influence of their ecclesiastical lead- 
ers as a covert foe within, sliould carry the puritanic citadel and lay waste 
the vineyards of their goodly Zion. The " General Court," however, after 
several days patient hearing of the parties at Hartford, together with a 
crowd of witnesses, much of whose testimony still appears in the minutes 
on record, finally decided against the remonstrants and granted the com- 
missions; and the Rev. Mr. Croswell proving to be sound in the faith of 
his people, and a faithful sentinel upon their watch tower, no dire calam- 
ity followed.

has left no trace on record which I have been able to discover, but while 
this work is in press, a letter from Ambrose Morgan, of Oswego, N. Y. 
raises a strong presumption that he is a descendant from this Abijah, as 
thus: his grandfather was Abijah, born about 1749, in New London co. 
Conn. ; his father was Abijah, a carpenter, born at or near Colchester, 
Conn, probably about 1772, and he himself was born in Colchester, 5 Oct. 
1795. I therefore engraft what I have been able to get in time, of his 
family, in this line of Abijah, being satisfied by the facts sent, and espe- 
cially by the stated traditions of the family, that it belongs here.

GENERATION VI. 

Time rolls his ceaseless course. The race of yore 

Who danced our infancy upon their knee, 
And told our marveling boyhood legends store, 

Of their strange ventures, happ'd by land or sea, 
How are they blotted from the things that be ! 

How few, all weak and withered of their force, 
Wait on the verge of dark eternity. 

Like stranded wrecks, the tide returning hoarse 
To sweep them from our sight. Time rolls his ceaseless course."

GENERATION VI. 55 

SIMEON, (208) born 1754, son of Joseph. 

On the memorable 6th day of September, 1781, when the sinf?le town 
of Groton was called to mourn the fall of no less than sixty-two of her best 
and bravest sons, butchered in the fort at Groton, by the British force un- 
der the infamous Arnold ; and when twenty-four others belonging to the 
same town were more or less seriously wounded in the same affray, Cor- 
poral Simeon Morgan, of Groton, was among the victims who fell. 

The records give no account of his birth, and the " place of his sepul- 
chre," like that ot " Moses of old," appeared utterly unknown. Nor could 
I learn from the oldest inhabitants of Groton, either from memory or tra- 
dition, any thing of his history, or even to what family he belonged, and 
it really seemed that the bare and doubtful record of his fall was all that 
was known or left concerning him. June 21, 18G7, piloted by my ever 
obliging friend, Elisha Morgan, Esq. of Groton, we found, standing silent, 
solitary and desolate amidst the thick w^oods of Ledyard, the old family 
grave stones of Capt. Joseph Morgan, born 1706, his wife, Dorothy, and 
three of his sons, Joseph, William, and Ebenezer. While noting the names 
and dates upon these grave stones, and forcing our way through the tang- 
led underbrush to obtain access to them, my fi-iend accidentally observed 
near the grave of Ebenezer, the fragment of a stone imbedded in the soil, 
and almost covered from view by decayed vegetable mold and creeping 
vmes. It attracted his keen scrutiny, and upon uncovering the surface 
and raising it up, it proved to be part of a grave stone, broken off, fallen 
and thus concealed by the gathering debris of time. It bore in rude let- 
ters on a slate stone, the following inscription : 

"IN MEMORY OF SIMEON MORGAN, WHO DIED SEPT. 6, 1781, 

IN FORT GRISWOLD, BY TRAITOR ARNOLD'S MURDERING CORPS, 

IN Ye 27TH YEAR OF HIS AGE. 

THIS BLOOMING YOUTH IN SWEETS OF LIFE, 
HIS GOD DOTH CALL WHILE CANNONS ROAR, 
A WINGED DART DOTH SEASE HIS BREATH, 
AND TAKES HIM FROM THIS GOLDEN SHORE." 

And now, that his memory is thus recalled, and his lineage and place of 
sepulchre discovered, let me here record it, that it may be better preserved 
hereafter. 

And I pray you, good Mr. Clerk of the town of Ledyard, that you dedi- 
cate one fair page of your public records, to the name and fate of this young 
martyr to Liberty, in fitting w^ords of fair enscroUment. 



56 GENERATION VI. 

And I pray you, wortliy Selectmen, remembering that your town bears 
its name in honor of another martyr, — the heroic commander of the Fort 
on that sad day, — that you will mark, by a more enduring-and conspicuous 
monument, the now neglected, forgotten, obscure and lonely spot, where 
this precious dust reposes. 

Rev. SOLOMON, (210) born 4 Feb. 1745, son of Solomon, 

m. 1st, Eunice, dau. of Elder Park Avery, of Groton, about 1770. She 

died 2 May, 1793, in her 45th year, and hem. 2d, widow Haskell, 

probably without issue ; settled over Nazareth church, Sterling, formerly 
Volunlown, April, 1772, where he continued until Feb. 1784, according 
to Doct. Bacon, but more probably Feb. 1783, for in Sept. 1783, he was 
again settled over the church in Canterbury, where he continued pastor 
until March, 1797, and in April, 1798, he was settled as pastor of the 
church in North Canaan, Conn, where he remained until his death, 3 Sept. 
1804, age 59. He perhaps preached again to his old charge in Volun- 
town between March, 1797, and April, 1798, as he is said to have gone 
from Nazareth church to North Canaan, in 1798. While he was settled 
over the church at Canterbury, from 1783 to 1797, he describes himself 
in his deeds and other papers, as of Plainfield adjoining. In 1784 " Rev. 
Solomon Morgan, of Canterbury," delivered at Groton, one of the first of 
a series of anniversary discourses, which were continued for several years, 
on the massacre at Groton fort. I have found traces of only five children, 
after much research, and can not trace either of them further.

fore stated; — 913 Samuel Osgood ;--914: Gilbert Osgood; — and 915 Ed- 
ward Osgood. All the five sons living, are merchants in Norwich. 

Doct. Osgood was for 46 years a skillful and successful practitioner in 
Lebanon; was a representative in General Assembly; member of the 
State Senate, and better and of higher worth to me personally than all, 
was ever an efficient member of the board of school visitors in the country 
district where I attended school, and the only school I ever attended, often 
placing his kinrily hand upon my head, and commending me to the master 
as a boy of some future promise ; words of encouragement I have never 
forgotten, and never shall while memory lasts. He and his most estimable 
wife, both quite aged, now reside (1867,) in Norwich, Ct. My blessing 
on their time-frosted heads. 

P. S. Almost before the ink of the last paragraph is dry, my eye rests 
upon the following notice: — "Died, in Norwich, Dec. 22, 1867, Doct. 
Erastus Osgood, in his 88th year." A well-merited tribute to his memory 
and sterling virtues accompanied the notice.

Col. CHRISTOPHER, (373) b. 27 Oct. 1747, s. of Wm. 2d, 

m. 1st, Deborah Ledyard, dau. of Youngs Ledyard, of Groton, 16 Feb. 
1768, by whom he had 8 children. She was b. 19 May, 1749, and d. 22 
April, 1807, age 58, and he ra. 2d, Margaret Gates, dau. of Asahel Gates, 
of Groton, 3 April, 1808, and had 2 children. He d. 5 July, 1831, age 
84, and his will was proved Aug. following, (Ston. prob.) 

This good jnother Deborah, must have been a woman of rare excellence 
of character, for her name and her virtues are still a sweet and cherished 
odor amid the fireside memories of her numerous descendants ; and the 
name of Ledyard, as a baptismal name in honor of her, is still perpetuated 
and transmitted as an heir loom among them. She was the grand dau. of 
John Ledyard, of old England, who settled on Long Island, and married a 
dau. of Judge Youngs. He had 10 children, the eldest of whom, John 
Ledyard Jr. was the father of John Ledyard 3d, of Groton, the celebrated 
traveler of world wide renown. Three other of his sons were settled in 
Groton. Benjamin and Isaac Ledyard were there engaged in commercial 
pursuits, and had one of their vessels maliciously burnt, in New London 
harbor, Sept. 3, 1735, by its commander, Capt. Broadhurst, an English- 
man. He was arrested and imprisoned for the act, but broke prison and 
escaped. Another son. Youngs Ledyard, father of our Deborah, settled 
in Groton, and mar. Mary Avery, of that town, June, 1748, when he was 
but 17, and she 18 years of age. He was b. 25 Jan. 1731, and d. 4 April, 
1762, age 31 years, and his wife, Mary, was b. 20 Nov. 1730, and died 7 
March, 1787, age 56. She m. Stephen Billings, of Groton, as her 2d hus- 
band. During the brief and early married life of Youngs and Mary, they 
had eight children, viz. our Deborah Ledyard, born 19 May, 1749, m. as 
above, Col. Christopher Morgan, d. 22 April, 1807 ; Youngs Ledyard Jr. 
24 June, 1751, killed in Groton fort, 6 Sept. 1781, age 30 ; Benjamin Led- 
yard, 5 March, 1753, d. 9 Nov. 1803 ; Isaac Ledyard, 5 Nov. 1754, d. 30 

Aug. 1803 ; Mary Ledyard, 3 Sept. 1758, m. Fairman, andd. 30 

May, 1806 ; William Ledyard, 11 March, 1760, d. 30 Jan. 1761 ; Lucy 
Ledyard, 5 July, 1761, m. Phelps, and d. 10 Sept. 1796, and Ca- 
leb Ledyard, 18 Oct. 1762, lost at sea, 1781, age 19. 

Col. William Ledyard, who commanded the fort at Groton, at the time 
of the bloody massacre of its heroic little garrison, by the British forces 



78 GENERATION VI. 

under the traitor Arnold, was the uncle of our Deborah. Another of her 
uncles, Ebenezer Ledyard, of Groton, one of the committee in charge of 
the construction of this fort, in 1775, was also one of its hapless garrison. 
He was taken prisoner and held to the close of the war, as an hostage for 
a body of wounded prisoners, left under parol. Capt. Youngs Ledyard, 
brother of our Deborah, and nephew of the Col. was in command of one 
of the companies of the garri.-^on, and was slain. When Col. Ledyard sur- 
rendered the fort, he presented his sword to the British commander, in 
token of submission, but that officer on receiving it, immediately thrust it 
through the Colonel's body. Capt. Youngs Ledyard and his brave com- 
panions, on witnessing this cold blooded butchery, believing that no quarter 
or mercy was to be expected, and determined to avenge the barbarous act, 
and to sell their lives as dearly as possible, again rushed into combat, and 
were cut down and fell almost to a man, around the bloody corpse of their 
beloved commander. 

A desire to learn something of the history of this Deborah, strongly ex- 
pressed by some of her descendants, has induced me to give this genealogi- 
cal and historical note of herself and some of her family connections. 

Col. Christopher and wife, Deborah, settled and died in Groton, and all 
their children were born there. The more noted Morgans of middle and 
western New York, Christopher, formerly Secretary of that State, and his 
brother, Edwin B. both formerly members of Congress, and the present 
families of the name at Auburn and Aurora, and other prominent families 
of that state and elsewhere, are sprung from this worthy pair.

955 Harriet Lucretia Wiglitman, 5 June, 1825. 

John Wifjhtraan was a descendant of Elder Valentine "Wicfhtman, the 
founder and father of the first society of Baptists in Groton, first exercising 
his "gifts" among a few willing hearers, and afterwards gathering a church, 
of which he was the pastor from 1710 to his death, June 9, 1747. His 
son, Rev. Timothy Wightraan, occupied the same pulpit and office after 
him for 42 years, and until his death, 14 Nov. 1796, in his 78 year, and 
was succeeded by his son, Rev. John Gano Wightman, who filled the same 
office for nearly 45 years, and until his death, 13 July, 1841, aged 74. 
Such a period of ministry over the same church, held in succession by 
father, son and grandson, for a period of a hundred and thirty years, is 
believed to be without a parallel in the history of American churches. 

Rev. Palmer G. Wightman, a grandson of Rev. John Gano "Wightman, 
is still the pastor of this same church, but did not immediately succeed his 
grandfather, a period of three or four years intervening. Many of the de- 
scendants of Elder Valentine Wightman have filled the pastoral office. 

Henrietta, (930) m. Roswell Allen, of Groton, 18 Aug. 1811, both 
deceased. He died 11 Aug. 1860, age 71, and she died 7 Sept. 1824, age 
34, leaving 1 child only, viz. 

956 Henrietta Allen, who m. Stephen Morgan Stoddard, and resides at 

Ledyard, Conn. ; had 5 chi. for which see account of Sarah Mor- 
gan, (1451.) 

Capt. WM. AVERY, (875) b. 24 Nov. 1754, s. of Wm. 2d, 

m. 1st, Lydia Smith, dau. of Nathan Smith, of Groton, 4 May, 1776, by 
whom he had 13 children. She died 4 Jan. 1804, age 45, and he next m. 
Sarah Harris, dau. of Capt. Nathaniel Harris, of Colchester, now Salem, 
10 June, 1804, and had 4 more children, making 17 in all, among whom 
my own name is found. All of these children except two, viz. Griswold, 
who died at sea, in his 21st year, and Sarah M. who died in her 15th year, 
lived to mature age and became heads of families. It was a common re- 
mark of our honored father, that he "had reared a family of 17 children, 
and had never had occasion to blush for the conduct of either of them." 
Seven of them are still living. He settled first in Groton, where 11 of his 
children were born, but removed to and settled in Colchester, (now Salem,) 
in March, 1796, where he resided until March, 1814, when he again re- 
moved to Lebanon, Conn, and died there, 22 March, 1842, age 88. Sarah, 
his widow, my honored mother, a woman of rare mental endowments, died 
in Harcford, 24 Nov. 1855, age 83. He was a sergeant in the war of the 
" Revolution," and present at the battle of Bunker Hill, June 17th, 1775, 
then in the 21st year of his age. 



GENERATION VI. 81 

He was a man of good natural abilities, and of some reading; social 
and companionable in intercourse ; fond of anecdote and repartee ; of kind 
and genial sympathies ; loved his friends and made them feel it. His 
smart rap striking one ear, and an apt witticism the other, at the same 
moment, often left his children in ludicrous doubt whether they were cry- 
ing at the rap, or laughing at the wit. 

It may be interesting to the present polyonomous generation, to note 
that this is the first instance in which more than one pre-nomen, or Chris- 
tian name was ever used in our family. Formerly, children many, names 
few ; latterly, children few, names many.

homestead there is quite an extensive family burying ground, substantially 
enclosed and well cared for by the present proprietor. All honor to him 
for his fraternal protection of this " God's acre." It lies in a romantic and 
sequestered valley, or basin, surrounded by an amphitheatre of hills and 
woodlands, and as I stood in this family Necropolis, on the 8th of August, 
1867, with my note-book in my hand, I seemed to feel the conscious pres- 
ence of these old patriarchs and matrons, whose earthly footprints I had 
so long and diligently traced among the dusty records of the past, and I 
wondered to myself whether their spirits were also conscious of my pres- 
ence, and of my sacred errand among them.

" Here rest our dead. In thought appears 
The shadows dim of by-gone years ; 
The past — weird, strange — a phantom stands, 
Dark, distant, primal, solemn, grand! 

Here rest our dead. But every vein 
Which throbs to day, gives life again ; 
Aye, life with all its spirit-thrills, 
As when they rambled o'er these hills."

JOHN, (439) b. 27 June, 1753, s. of Theophilus, 

m. widow Sally L. Stillman, dau. of Samuel and Sarah Lancelot, of Weth- 
ersfield, 24 Feb. 1781; grad. Yale College, 1774; settled in Hartford, 
and died 19 Sept. 1842, age 89. His wife died 21 June, 1840, age 76. 
He was a merchant of widely extended fame, celebrated for his private 
enterprise and public spirit, and leaves a name which will be long remem- 
bered and associated with the early commercial history and prosperity of 
the city of Hartford. He was the projector and principal proprietor of the 
" Great Bridge" across the Connecticut river at Hartford, and opened the 
street connected therewith, which still bears his name. His zealous labors* 
and liberal support contributed largely in placing the society and parish of 
Christ church, while then in weak infancy, upon that solid foundation 
which has led to its present prosperity and eminence. 

In 1785 he imported from Canton, China, in the first American vessel 
that ever entered the Chinese waters, the ship " Empress of China," more 



GENERATION VI. 93 

fully alluded to under John (561,) a large quantity of China ware, among 
it a rich and extensive dining set, made to his own order, each piece bear- 
ing his own name and coat of arms, (a lion rampant, crest a demi griffin,) 
which is still preserved and now in possession of the family of Gen. John 
A. Dix, of New York, present minister to France. His brother, Elias, 
several years later, also imported another set, with his name and the same 
device inscribed thereon. 

He was vigorous and straight-forward in all his actions, aristocratic in 
feeling and bearing, and terse, original and direct in conversation, some- 
times using expletives that in another man might seem a little profane, 
but never so in him. He accumulated what in that day was considered a 
vast estate, but unfortunately in his later days found himself reduced almost 
to poverty, and lived and died in straitened pecuniary circumstances. 

He and my honored father, Capt. William A. (375) were old and early 
friends, and T well remember a very pleasant interview between them in 
their old age, under my own roof Warm in personal friendship, and en- 
livened a little with a proper admixture of " old memories" and " old Ja- 
maica," and addressing each other ever as "Capt. Bill," and "Uncle 
John," their colloquy was exceedingly interesting and impressive, and I 
remember it as if it were but yesterday. 

His air and bearing would appear peculiar in this day, but he had sev- 
eral compeers in Hartford then; princely merchants of the old English 
school; highly educated and of polished culture; bearing themselves with 
all the proud dignity of lords and nobles "to the manor born." Common 
men approached them with great deference and with heads uncovered ; and 
we boys were hushed as they passed in the streets, with their gold-headed 
canes, short breeches, and silver shoe-buckles. Uncle John was one of 
the "last of the Plantagenets." 

He had but one child, a daughter.

" What's hallowed ground? where mourned and missed, 
The lips repose our love has kissed ! — 
But Where's their memory's mansion? I'st 

Yon church-yard bowers ? 
No ! in ourselves their souls exist, 

A part of ours." 

Campbell. 



" Onward its course the present keeps, 
Onward the constant current sweeps, 

'Till life is done; 
And did we judge of time aright, 
The past and future, in their flight, 

Would be as one."

no other child. He afterwards removed to Cranston, R. I. 

1813 Fanny, about 1805, m. Amasa Sprague, of R. I. and had 7 children, 
viz. — \^\4, Henry Sprague; — 1315 Fanny Sprague ; — and 1316 
Julia Sprague, all died young; — 1317 3Iary Ann Sprague, about 

1825, ra. , and m. 2d, Francis Latham, of Groton ; 

no child; — 1318 Almira Sprague, about 1828, unmarried; — 1819, 
Wm. Sprague, 11 Sept. 1830, m. Kate, dau. of U. S. Chief Jus- 
tice Salmon P. Chase, about 1864; — and 1320 Amasa Sprague 
about 1832, m. Mary Warburton, now deceased. The dates in 
this family, except the birth of Wm. are all conjectural. 
The Sprague family of Rhode Island to which Amasa belonged, were 
the pioneers in the manufacture of cotton goods in this country, and their 
history is the history of the rise and progress of that immense industrial 
interest. At first the yarn only was produced by machinery, and was in 
that form given out to the country damsels of New England, to be by them 
woven into cloth, in their own hand-looms at home. It was while thus 
distributing yarn among the damsels of Groton, as clerk for his father, that 
Amasa found his future wife, Fanny Morgan. He and his brother Wil- 
liam became largely engaged in this growing enterprise, erecting cotton- 
mills, and improving in the introduction and use of new machinery, and 
acquiring thereby very great private estates and popular influence. Wil- 
liam was born in Cranston, R. I. 1800 ; was a member of the General 
Assembly of the State when quite young ; was Speaker of the House of 
Representatives of Rhode Island in 1832; a Representative in Congress 
of U. S. in 1835 ; Governor of Rhode Island in 1838 and 1839 ; and in 
1842, U. S. Senator, serving two years. He died in Providence, 19 Oct. 
1851. Amasa, born in Cranston, was murdered by an Irishman, about 
1844, while going from his house to his farm. The supposed homicide 
was arrested, tried and convicted upon circumstantial evidence, and expi- 
ated the crime upon the gallows, protesting his innocence to the last. A 
few years after, another man, formerly in the employ of Mr. Sprague, and 
who had returned to Ireland just after the homicide, confessed on his death- 
bed, as it is said, that he was the sole perpetrator of the crime. 



GENERATION VII. 105 

The present William Sprague 2d has ever been the recipient of the 
same class of popular favors, which were attendant upon his uncle William. 
Born in Cranston, R. I. ; educated at Irving Institute, N. Y. ; joined an 
Artillery Company of Providence, R. I. when eighteen, and became a 
Colonel; afterwards a INIaj or- General in the civil war; elected Governor 
of Rhode Island, in 1861 ; elected U. S. Senator from that State in 1862, 
for six years, ending 1869, and in 1868, unanimously re-elected for another 
six years' term ; Chairman of Cong. Committee on Manufactures, and 
member of Committee on Commerce, and also on Military Affairs ; Presi- 
dent of several Banks in Providence, and Director in various Insurance 
Companies ; and moreover an active partner with his brother Amasa, in 
the celebrated firm of A. & W. Sprague, of Providence, by far the most 
extensive and opulent cotton manufacturers in the country. 

As an excuse for the entire lack of dates, observable in this family, it is 
due to myself to say that I have made unusual efforts to obtain them ; have 
written repeatedly, to various members of the family ; have applied in 
person for them, and others have applied in ray behalf, but not a line or 
date has been vouchsafed in response, although often promised ; and at a 
recent interview in Groton, with one of the daughters, Mrs. Mary Ann 
Latham, several of our family friends being present, we were assured that 
none of the Sprague family knew their ages or birth-dates ; that she did 
not know her own ; that they kept no family record, and cared for none ; 
that a parson Sprague, of Albany, (probably the eminent and venerable 
Rev. Doct. Sprague,) had been for several years writing them for the same 
'data, for a Sprague genealogy, but had got no reply yet, and she did not 
believe he ever would. ' I am therefore quite willing to gratify the self- 
complacency with which these assurances were made to us, by giving it a 
little wider family audience. 

JOSEPH, (516) b. 28 Nov. 1762, s. of Joseph, 

mar. Eunice Perkins, dau. of James, of Groton, 3 July, 1783; settled 'in 
Groton, where all his nine children, by Eunice, were born. She died 16 
March, 1799, age 33, when her last child was but one week old. He next 
mar. her sister, wid. Mary Latham, {nee Perkins,) 14 July, 1799, and re- 
moved to Salem, then a part of Colchester, before 1809, and had 3 children 
by his second vvife. She died 4 July, 1833. 

When the Methodists first appeared in the south parish of Colchester, 
now Salem, some 55 years ago, this Joseph Morgan united with them, and 
became an exhorter and class-leader, holding regular meetings at his house. 
One bright summer Sabbath morning, when I was five or six years old, on 
my way to one of his meetings with my sainted mother, I had caught a 
very gay colored butterfly, and for safe-keeping had confined it in the top 
14 



106 GENERATION VII. 

of my little straw hat. On entering the room and taking a seat, somewhat 
shy and embarrassed by the presence of the goodly company, I took off 
my hat, all forgetful of my little prisoner, who was thus left exposed upon 
the top of my head. The eye of Elder Morgan, just as he was about to 
open the services, rested upon it — his long fore-finger, slowly raised, 
pointed it out to all eyes — and the single word '•'"hoyT which reached my 
ears, was the last thing I could comprehend, for a space. In my utter con- 
fusion, I could have crawled into a very small hole to have hid my shame. 
So vivid and lasting impressions do mere trifles sometimes make upon the 
minds of young children. I have probably never seen this man since that 
day, but his memory has never recurred to me without bringing with it 
visions of that butterfly. 

He was prominent and active in public business ; selectman, represent- 
ative in General Assembly, &c. and died 1 Dec. 1831, age 69, from the 
effects of a fall from his horse.

GENERATION VII. 113 

JOHN, (561) b. 23 Dec. 1750, s. of John 4th, 

never married. He was carpenter on board the ship " Empress of China, 
John Green, Esq. commander," and died at sea, 15 April, 1785, aged 35 
years, on his passage from Canton to New York, on the first voyage ever 
made to China by an American vessel. In Vol. I, page 515, of "The 
Keport of the Commercial Relations of the United States with all Foreign 
Nations," [Cong. Doc. 1856,] the following account occurs of this voyage; 
which as a matter of peculiar interest in conection with the history of this 
young mariner, I quote entire. 

" Commercial relations between the United States and China date from 
a period as early as 1784. In the month of February of that year, the 
"Empress of China," a ship of 360 tons, sailed from New York for Canton, 
and returned the following year, with a rich and valuable cargo. The 
success, as well as novelty of the adventure, attracted no little attention 
throughout the country. The ensuing year another voyage was made in 
a small vessel of only eighty tons burden, with equal success. Merchants 
were soon induced to engage in an enterprize which promised the most 
flattering results ; and as early as 1789, five years after the American flag 
first entered the China seas, fifteen American ships arrived at Canton. 
Such was the origin of an extensive and profitable trade between the Uni- 
ted States and the " Celestial Empire." 

The dying sailor and carpenter made his will on board this ship, " dated 
at sea, April 11th, 1785," in which he gives all his effects on board to his 
"father, Capt. John Morgan, of Groton," and appoints his "dear friend, 
Thomas Blake, gunner and steward of the ship," his executor, to deliver 
his effects over to his father; a charge which appears to have been faithfully 
executed, as the above will was proved in Stonington Probate, and inventory 
exhibited 4 April, 1786, and in 1792, Feb. 7, after the death of his father, 
his effects above, and other estate, were distributed to his brothers, Eben- 
ezer and Stephen, and his sister, Margery, wife of Peleg Williams, as his 
heirs. As no mention is made, either in this distribution, or in the will of 
their father, dated 11 Sept. 1789, of any of the other brothers, or their heirs, 
it is highly probable that they had all died before the latter date. 

Amono; his eflfects brouo-ht from China, were rich and curious Chinese 
fabrics, China ware, tea-sets, &c. which, from their novelty, as well as 
their sad associations, must have been for the time, the great theme in the 
quiet and rural town of Groton, the hive of our family, and as the tradition 
thereof is still alive, I have deemed this brief narrative worthy of a place 
in this family record. [See also John, (439) the celebrated merchant of 
Hartford, in connection with this voyage.]

GENERATION VII. 121 

June, 1821, where he remained until 1840, when his health failing, he 
was placed upon the retired list. He then removed to Windsor, Ver. 
where he died 14 March, 1861, age 81, and where his wife, Ruth, and 
all his children but Doct. Arnold, are buried. July 31, 1851, while 
waiting for my breakfast at the Windsor Hotel, Windsor, Ver. to while 
away a few minutes I walked out to where a venerable appearing old man 
was hoeing corn, alone by the side of the road, and had a brief conversation 
with him. So much was I impressed with his quiet urbanity and dignity 
of manner, and by the cultivated tone of his conversation, that on return- 
ing to the hotel I inquired his name, and was told it was Elder James 
Morgan. I made a note of the fact in my diary, but never recurred to it 
again until the past year, 1867, sixteen years after, when on noticing 
it, I sent one of my printed circulars of genealogical inquiry, addressed to 
"Elder James Morgan, Windsor, Ver. if living, or to any of his descend- 
ants," with a request to the Postmaster there to aid in having it reach a 
proper destination. By his polite and kind attention the circular made an 
excursion into New Hampshire, (Elder James having been dead as is now 
seen, over six years,) and thence to Hartland, Ver. where it met the eye 
of Mrs. Melvina D. (Morgan) Wilder, one of his grand-children, who at 
once responded, and through whose ready aid I have since been enabled 
to restore all the members of this lost Vermont branch, from Isaac, (244) 
of Groton, and to re-group them in their order, in the family tree. A clue 
even so slight as this, is sometimes of great value to the vigilant genealogist.

CHRISTOPHER, (926) b. 15 Oct. 1777, s. of Christopher, 
mar. Nancy Barber, 15 July, 1805, dau. of John Barber, of Groton. He 
was a native of Groton, but removed to Aurora, N. Y. April, 1800, where 
he settled, and died 4 Oct. 1834, age 57. His wife, born 29 Aug. 1785, 
died 4 Aug. 1864, age 79. His six sons were all born in Aurora. 

As one of the early pioneers from the Groton hive to Western New 
York, and as the founder of a numerous and eminent line of the name in 
that State, a brief account of his migration and settlement will be read with 
interest. In the month of April, 1800, then in his 23d year of life, mounted 
upon a colt, bought with his own first earnings, as a school teacher, in his 
native town, with saddle-bags well stored with provisions, by the thought- 
ful care of his good mother, Deborah, whose rare excellence of character 
has already been noticed, and with a lean purse to meet traveling expenses, 
our young adventurer bade adieu to his cherished home and friends, to try 
his fortunes in the then vague regions of the western wilderness. Arriving 
in due time at the extreme verge of civilized settlements, on the back of 
Cayuga Lake, his keen eye scrutinizing at once the loveliness, as well as 
the natural fertility of this beautiful location, and further induced by the 
fact that an embryo settlement by Col. John L. Hardingburg, and a few 
others, was already springing into life, he decided to dismount, hitch his 
colt, take off his saddle-bags and join fortunes with these new settlers. 
Afterwards as the settlement increased, he engaged in merchandizing, and 
at the time of his death, in 1834, had acquired one of the largest estates 
in western New York. His eldest son, Edwin B. afterwards member of 
Congress, succeeded him in his business, as a merchant, in 1827.

died 10 Aug. 1860, age also 50. He was colonel of militia; repr^'sentative 
in Gen. Assembly, and was, at the time of his death, and had been for many 
years, the very discreet and efficient agent appointed by the State, to over- 
see and manage the estate of the Ledyard Pequots, a remnant of that an- 
cient tribe of Indians, for whom the State had made a reservation of about 
1,000 acres of land.

GENERATION VII. 145 

And now, to any curious kinsman who may demand that the family 
Registrar should show also his own personal record, I reply. I was born in 
Salem, Conn, then a parish of Colchester; removed when eight years old, 
with my parents, to Lebanon ; labored there on a hard farm several years, 
attending a small district school a few months each winter; in later youth a 
sailor, and at the age of twenty-one and several years after, a commander, 
in the West India trade ; since then for a brief period, engaged in mer- 
chandizing, but generally in the public service. Alderman, City Sheriff, 
Judge of City Court, First Selectman, School Superintendent; twelve years 
Prison Warden ; first Pres. Phoenix Insurance Co. &c. ; and at present, 
State Commissioner on tax laws and taxation ; President Board of Trus- 
tees of the " Hartford Home," &c. &c. and in broken health and great 
physical debility and suffering, which has reduced my ordinary weight of 
165, to a skeleton of 110 pounds, devoting my chief attention to the pre- 
paration of this family record, in honor of the Morgan sept and clan. 

It is seen that my early educational advantages were very limited, but 
I do not offer that fact as an excuse for the defects of this work, literary or 
otherwise, for in this age of universal light and knowledge, all may acquire 
educational accomplishments, who have eyes to see, or ears to hear.

Harriet Emeline, (1988) grad. of Hartford High School, class of 
1862, died instantly and without any premonition, on the morning of April 
28, 1863, at Hartford, aged nineteen years, six months and fifteen days. 
Four months prior she had a fearful fall, which for a few moments stunned 
her into unconsciousness, but from which she soon recovered, and no fur- 
ther effects of it were afterwards manifested, until the fatal morning when, 
in a second of time, she passed from life, to life eternal, in the presence of 
her astonished, bewildered and heart-riven parents, without a word or sign. 
One of the loveliest of earth's daughters, her whole life and character in 
the world below, seemed better adapted to the world above, and surely a 
father's heart and hand may be indulged in recording here this brief memo- 
rial, and saying of her early exit —

Doct. DANIEL, (1138) b. 22 March, 1813, s. of Isaac, 2d, 

m. Matilda A. Fisher, 29 Jan. 1839, dau. of Samuel, of Lynchburg, Va. ; 
grad. Yale (Medical) College, 1837 ; settled as a physician in Evansville, 
Ind. 1837, and still residing there. 

I have never seen the Doctor, but my heart has warmed to him from 
the generous and manly tone of his correspondence. Reared as a farmer's 
boy, in Canterbury, Conn. ; attended Brooklyn Academy, and afterwards 
Phillips Academy, and Plainfield Academy ; commenced the study of his 
profession with Andrew Harris, M. D. a noted physician and surgeon ; 
completed it as a member of the medical class in Yale College; graduated 
in 1837, and settled immediately after in Evansville, where his career in 
his profession has been eminently successful. 

Dignified but urbane in deportment, genial and sympathetic in social 
and professional character, he has a vast power of personal magnetism 
about him which commands the warm regard and friendship of all who 
know him. Both as a skillful professional man, and as a highly cultivated 
Christian gentleman, he ranks among the foremost in his city; and his 
pecuniary success enables him to maintain himself and family in that posi- 
tion with becoming grace. He stands six feet three inches in height, a, d 
weighs 230 pounds ; a fine specimen of a manly frame, enclosing a manly 
heart.

city. No. 7 North Madison Square ; a wealthy shipping merchant. 

The history of Charles Morgan is interesting and instructive, as illus- 
trating what may be accomplished by an American boy, with no other aid 
and inheritance than his own persevering energy and enterprise. Born in 
Clinton, Conn. ; early thrown upon his own resources, he entered at the 
age of fourteen years, as clerk in a grocery store, in New York city. About 
maturity he commenced business for himself in a small way, but soon en- 
larged it by importing fruit from the West Indies; became part owner of a 
brig, and a few years later, sole' owner of a line of sailing vessels in the 
West India trade from New York. He was subsequently the founder and 
principal proprietor of the celebrated "Morgan Iron Works," a mammoth 
foundry for the casting and manufacture of heavy steam-ship and steam 
machinery, on the East River, New York, which still bears his name. But 
his greatest success and celebrity has been won as a shipping merchant, 
and steam-ship owner; the extent of his business in this line being unri- 
valed by that of any other individual in the United States. He started 
the first steam-ship between New York and Charleston, S. C, which with 
his usual successful management, soon grew into a regular line of steamers,

owned by him. In 1836, he sent the first steamer from New Orleans to 
the coast of Texas. This was before that young empire had conquered 
her independence from Mexico, but his far reaching sagacity and foresight 
at once discerning the future importance of the commerce of that State and 
the Gulf Coast, he very soon became the pioneer, as usual, in establishing 
several lines of steam-ships from New Orleans to various Texan and other 
ports along the Gulf. He has continued ever since in the prosecution of 
this enterprize, until now the "Morgan Lines of Steamers," in the Gulf of 
Mexico, are as widely known in commerce, as is the Gulf of Mexico itself. 
He is at present, the sole owner of no less than seventeen heavy first class 
steam-ships, constructed of iron, all in active service, plying the waters of 
the Gulf, in various lines from New Orleans ; and this vast enterprize, as 
well as all his othei' business is still under his own personal direction and 
management, in the cheerful, hale and hearty 74th year of his age. His estate 
is a princely one, and he ranks among the eminent millionaires of N. Y. city. 
His tastes are tor private life, seeking no public notice, honors or office. 
Of gentle speech and courteous bearing, he makes many friends and few 
enemies, and among his many other excellent personal qualities he has 
that, which ever marks the true gentleman, and is often one of the secrets 
of success, of treating his numerous subordinates with uniform affability 
and kindness.

CALVIN, (1240) b. 11 April, 1801, s. of Nicholas, 

m. 29 June, 1830, Julia M. Disbrow, dau. of John, of Fairfield, and resides 
in Groton, a sober minded, honest, substantial farmer, but of a deep reli- 
gious tone and temperament. Some twenty-five years ago, under a strong 
conviction of duty to follow the Saviour's memorable example of fasting, 
he abstained forty days and nights, utterly as was said, from any food or 
nourishment whatever, taking nothing but a little water, with an occasional 
pinch of salt in it. During this time, though his flesh became much wasted, 
his general health seemed to be not much impaired. He said the angels 
fed him while he slept. The public press of the day was full of comments 
and speculations upon the wonderful phenomena of his case, but without 
eliciting any satisfactory explanation. I have ventured to suggest as pos- 
sible, that the angels who fed him while he slept, may have been, all un- 
consciously to himself, kindly assisted by some earthly friend, anxious for 
his fate, but this suggestion finds no support among his intelligent neigh- 
bors. He has had several occasions of extreme fasting since, but never 
for so long a period.

176 GENERATION VIII. 

Capt. ALFRED G. (1543) b. 19 Nov. 1816, s. of Jedediah, 

m. Rachel, dau. of Solomon Grant, of Maysville, Ky. and cousin of Gen. 
U. S. Grant, 26 Aug. 1852. She died in New Orleans, 29 Aug, 1853, 
and he died at Sacramento, Cal. 26 April, 1860, age 43; no children. 

Educated at Cayuga Academy ; studied law ; removed in 1836, to Lou- 
isville, Ky. and engaged in commercial pursuits; embarked early in 1850, 
for the then new golden El Dorado of California, in quest of miners for- 
tune ; purchased for $10,000 one-seventh of a quartz mine in Calaveros, 
afterwards so celebrated as the " Morgan mine," and became President of 
the Company working it. In the report of J. Ross Browne, on the mineral 
resources west of the Rocky Mountains, made to the Secretary of the Treas- 
ury, 1868, page 59, this mine is described as one of the richest in that land 
of gold marvels. From Feb. 1850 to Dec. 1851, the company extracted 
2,800,000 dollars worth of gold, besides very large quantities which were 
stolen. On one occasion 110,000 dollars worth of gold was thrown out at 
a single blast. The excitement in the region ran so high, and the curiosity 
to see the mine was so intense, that Robinson's ferry, two miles below, took 
$10,000 for ferriage in six weeks. But this unparalleled success proved 
fatal to the Company. In that wild region it was too great to be witnessed 
in peace. Several hundred lawless villains banded together under the 
lead of "Billy Mullisjan," and other kindred ruffians, drove off the owners 
by force, and took entire possession themselves. Nor did the civil tribu- 
nals to which appeal was made, succeed in restoring to the owners, quiet 
possession, until after the death of Capt. Morgan, the president. 

To show the esteem in which he was held, I extract from an obituary 
notice of him in the I^, 0. Picayune. 

"At the time of his death, he held the important and responsible state 
office of Commissioner of Immigration. No one possessed the esteem and 
friendship of a larger portion of his fellow-citizens ; and the above an- 
nouncement bears to many, on this side, a burden of sorrow no less poig- 
nant than it has caused in his adopted state, [Cal.] His" integrity, his 
frankness, and his high sense of honor, won for him the esteem of all ac- 
quaintances. His genial, kind and benevolent disposition, secured for him 
the devoted attachment of all who enjoyed his friendship. Seldom was 
there met with, such an abnegation of self as characterized him, whether 
in responding to the calls of charity from strangers, or in the more grate- 
ful office of aiding friends. None die out of the family circle more beloved 
than was he. The community in which he died, [Sacramento,] have 
testified in a manner honorable to his memory, their appreciation of his 
worth, and their bereavement in his loss."

Hon. LEWIS H. (1544) b. 21 Nov. 1818, s. of Jedediah, 

m. Mary Elizabeth, dau. of Lemuel Steele, of Albany, N. Y. 13 Aug. 
1851 ; she was born 20 Dec. 1819. He graduated at Union College, 
Schenectady, in 1840 ; studied law, and settled as a lawyer in Rochester, 
in 1842, rising rapidly to a distinction which secured a lucrative practice, 
and in 1864 retired from the profession in affluence, to devote himself 
more exclusively to scientific pursuits. In 1861, he was a member of the 
N. Y. State Assembly, and in 1867 was elected a State Senator, for two 
years from the 28th district, which office he now holds. In " Life Sketches 
of the State officers. Senators," &c. of N. Y. 1868, there is a well-merited 
biographical notice of him, from which I quote. 

" With a well cultivated mind and a natural tendency to investigating 
and philosophical modes of thought, Mr. Morgan's attention was early 
called to the study of our native Indian tribes, and especially of the power- 
ful Six Nations, whose seat of empire was in Western and Central New 
York. He studied them carefully in their historical relations, and espe- 
cially with reference to the structure and principles of their civil and 
domestic institutions. In the course of these studies he examined and 
surveyed many of the ancient traces of Indian occupation in the western 
part of the State; and in 1848 he communicated to the Regents of the 
University a paper urging the formation of a museum of Indian antiqui- 
ties, to illustrate the aboriginal era of our history, and to show the progress 
and condition of the useful arts among the tribes. The earlier reports of 
the Regents upon the condition of the State Cabinet, contain several elab- 
orate and fully illustrated papers from his pen, upon the ancient earth- 
works and modern arts of our Indians, and a large part of the collection 
of aboriginal utensils and relics in the State Museum, was made by him. 

"In 1851, he published a volume entitled "The League of the 
Iroquois," in which he gave the matured result of long and careful re- 
searches into the true nature of the institutions, civil, social and religious, 
of that famous confederacy of tribes, whose history is so closely identified 
with our colonial annals. Of this valuable work, the North American 
Review, the highest of our critical journals, said in July, 1865, in an arti- 
cle on the Indian tribes : 'Among modern students of Iroquois institutions, 
a place far in advance of all others is due to Lewis H. Morgan, himself an 
Iroquois by adoption, and intimate with the race from boyhood. His work, 
The League of the Iroquois, is a production of most thorough and able re- 
search. Though often diffiaring widely from Mr. Morgan's conclusions, we 
cannot bear a too emphatic testimony to the value of his researches.' In 
the recently published life of Dr. Francis Wayland, long President of 
Brown University, we find a letter from that eminent scholar addressed to 
Mr. Morgan, in which he says: 'I have just completed reading, for the 
23

second time, your League of the Iroquois. I cannot forbear the pleasure 
of thanking you for it. It is the most remarkable book of the kind I have 
ever seen. * * * It is in all respects to me a most surprising book, 
and ought to be in every public library in the world. Men ought to know 
that such a race as this has lived.' Francis Parkman, the brilliant histo- 
rian of ' The Conspiracy of Pontiac,' ' The Jesuits in North America,' and 
other works of the highest character in our early history, bears equally 
emphatic testimony to the value of Mr. Morgan's book, to which he con- 
stantly refers as an authority of the greatest weight in all that relates to the 
Iroquois- 

'' In the course of his studies of the Indians, Mr. Morgan's attention was 
strongly drawn to their peculiar system of family relationship, and to the 
terms which they employ in addressing their relatives and kindred. In 
pursuing his investigations, he made long journeys to the West and visited 
the tribes of the Great Plains and of the Upper Missouri. He found 
every where among the aborigines a strongly defined and peculiar system 
of relationship, of which, in the course of his studies, he detected unmis- 
takable traces among the barbarian nations of the Old World. This led 
him to enter upon a series of investigations, extended to nearly every na- 
tion of the globe by means of letters and carefully prepared circulars ad- 
dressed to our missionaries and consuls in foreign countries. The results 
of this vast and laborious correspondence, which was carried on for many 
years, have been embodied by him in an extensive and elaborate work 
entitled ' Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family,' 
which the Smithsonian Institution has accepted, and has now in course 
of publication. A committee of eminent ethnologists, to whom it was sub- 
mitted for examination by the Secretary of the Institution, pronounced it 
a work of great value, contributing original and important additions to the 
science of ethnology. 

" While sojourning in the Lake Superior region, where he usually spends 
the summer months, Mr. Morgan made a special study of the habits of the 
beaver, the result of which he has given to the public in a beautifully illus- 
trated volume, entitled ' The American Beaver and his Works,' of which 
Lippincott & Co., of Philadelphia, are the publishers. The book adds 
largely to our knowledge of the natural history of this most intelligent and 
interesting animal, about which so many fables have been related, and of 
which so little has been hitherto accurately known. 

" As a lawyer, Mr. Morgan, for nearly twenty years, stood high in his 
profession at Rochester, and having acquired an ample competence by its 
successful practice, retired from the bar to devote himself to scientific and 
literary pursuits. Socially and personally he is one of the foremost of the 
citizens of Rochester, where he is held in universal esteem for his fine tal- 
ents, his scholarly acc^uirements and his spotless purity of character." 



GENERATION VIII. 179 

A paper entitled "A conjectural Solution of the Origin op the 
CLAssiFiCATORT SYSTEM OF RELATIONSHIP," was presented and read by 
Mr. Morgan, at the monthly meeting of the " American Academy of Arts 
and Sciences," Feb. 1868, which has just been issued from the press by 
that association. This paper is a synoptical, or rather an epitomised ex- 
position of the generai facts and inductions of his forthcoming work on the 
"Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family," and gives, 
both in theme and treatment, a rich foretaste of the highly interesting and 
valuable character of that work. 

His published works all show habits of close observation and study, and 
in style he possesses a felicity in technical diction, and in the use of scien- 
tific nomenclature, strikingly characteristic and clear. He is decidedly 
the savant of our family in science and natural history, and stands among 
us like Saul among the prophets, a head and shoulders above all others of 
the tribe. 

I have to confess that my own notes led me, at first, to challenge his claim 
to a niche in our fraternity, but he charged resolutely and gallantly through 
all my defences, turned my own ample store of gathered facts and cir- 
cumstances fairly against myself, and succeeded, not only with convincing, 
but demonstrative evidence in establishing his clear right by lineal descent, 
to his present place in our family camp.

Gov. EDWIN D. (1962) b. 8 Feb. 1811, s. of Jasper, 

m. Eliza Matilda Waterman, (976) 19 Aug. 1833, dau. of Capt. Henry 
Waterman and Lydia (7iee Morgan) Waterman, of Kartford, Conn.; now 
residing at 411 Fifth Avenue, N. Y city. 

Gov. Morgan is a native of Massachusetts, though of the recent Groton, 
Conn, stock. All his ancestors were born and buried in Groton, the old 
hive of our family. His father was also born there, and settled there after 
his marriage, but in 1809, removed to Washington, Berkshire Co. Mass. 
where he resided a few years, and where this son, Edwin D. was born. 
He subsequently returned to Connecticut, and settled in Windsor, where 
his sons were reared as farmer's boys, attending the local free Academy at 
that place, in winter ; Edwin D. also attending one term at Bacon Acade- 
my, at Colchester, in the winter of 1826; and this comprised all his school 
advantages. In 1828, at the age of 17, he entered as clerk in the whole- 
sale grocery store of his uncle, Nathan, (962) at Hartford ; became part- 
ner in the business in 1831, at the age of 20 ; and soon after majority he 
was chosen a common councilman in the city government. In 1836, he 
removed to New York city, where he has ever since resided ; extensively 
and with eminent success devoted to commercial pursuits, accumulaiting a 
princely fortune. In 1849, he was elected Alderman of the city, and the 
same year was elected State Senator for two years, and re-elected in 1851, 
serving two terms. In 1855, he was appointed a Commissioner of Emi- 
gration, and held that office until 1858 ; was a Vice-President of the Na- 
tional Republican Convention, at Pittsburg, which nominated John C. 
Fremont, for President of the U. S. and was then chosen chairman of the 
National Republican Committee, and continued in that office eight years, 
and until 1864, when he became, and still continues to be, the Chairman 
of the Union Congressional Committee. In 1858, he was elected Gov- 
ernor of the State of New York, for two years; his administration a popu- 
lar and successful one, and in 1860, he was re-elected for another term ; 
the only re-election to that office which had occurred in twenty years. In 
1861, Sept. 30, he was appointed by President Lincoln, a Major General 
of Volunteers, and the state of New York was created a military depart- 
ment, under his command ; for which services as Major General he 
declined to receive pay. In 1863, he was elected a Senator from that 
state, in the Congress of the U. S. for six years, which office he now holds, 
with a fair prospect of re-election in 1869; serving on the Committee on 
Finance, on Commerce, on the Pacific Railroad, and the Congressional 
Library. 

"The applause of listening senates to command" is not his role. He is 
not an orator ; attempts no senatorial harangue, and participates in no 
forensic debate ; confining himself in his public remarks, strictly to such 
brief explanations as are necessary on presenting petitions, reports, or other

similar business papers ; but his sound judgment, shrewd sagacity, and 
eminent practical business capacity, contribute a great weight of influence, 
and render him a useful and valuable member of the Senate. 

As a Senator he became ex officio, a member of the recent Grand Na- 
tional Inquest for the trial of Andrew^ Johnson, President of the United 
States, on the grave question of his Impeachment ; an event which the 
pen of history will record in future retrospect, as by far the most conspic- 
uous and memorable of his public life, or that of his compeers on that 
tribunal.

N. Y. 1837, and theologically at the Gen. Episcopal Theological Semina- 
ry, Chelsea, N. Y. 1840 ; was assistant rector with Doct. Croswell, New 
Haven, three years ; settled as rector of Christ Church, Norwich, from 
Sept. 1844, to March, 1857 ; thence called and settled rector of St. Thomas 
Church, N. Y. city, where he still remains. The honorary degree of D. D. 
was conferred upon him by Columbia College, in 1857. Doct. Morgan is 
a clergyman of sound judgment, ripe scholarship, pleasing address, and 
very fine and commanding presence ; and charitable, kind and manly in 
general bearing. He has been very successful in both parishes under his 
rectorship in strengthening his church and people, and in erecting a stately 
church edifice in each. Independent in thought and action ; standing self- 
poised, strong and solid upon his own center of moral convictions, he yet 
makes few or no enemies.

ONE CHILD. 

3038 Alfred Waterman Morgan, born 19 Oct. 1854. 

In the order of the several generations, and also in the order of suc- 
cessive primogeniture in each generation, as strictly followed in this gene- 
alogy, this young scion of the Gens terminates the long catalogue, and 
closes the Grand Family Review. 

Commencing with James, in his humble abode, reared of rude logs, in 
the primeval wilderness of Pequot, I close with this child of fortune, 
nurtured in the full sunshine of every comfort and luxury which wealth 
can command, in this voluptuous age ; himself sole heir presumptive of an 
inheritance exceeding in value by more than five fold, the entire grand 
list of property of the whole Commonwealth of Connecticut in the days of 
James, his ancestor. How striking the contrast ! It indeed well repre- 
sents and measures the gigantic strides which our goodly land has made in 
material progress, wealth and numbers, since first our pilgrim fathers 
planted it. A few feeble colonists, scattered along the wild shore of a 
strange wilderness, have sprung, as if by magic, into a Nation, whose 
proud flag, the symbol of triumphant Liberty, floats over every sea, and 
whose angry drum-roll would awaken consternation in every Imperial 
Court in Christendom. It would be a source of immeasurably deeper 
gratification, could we but feel the conscious assurance that the advancer 
ment of our Heaven-favored realm, in the higher and nobler elements ot 
morality and virtue, had kept equal pace with this upward and onwaid

APPENDIX. 



The manuscript of which the following is a copy, came into my hands 
several years ago. Its early traditions of our family were the first and 
only ones I had ever discovered, and as they so generally corresponded 
with the results of my own investigations, previously made, were exceed- 
ingly interesting and gratifying, as affording additional verification of those 
results. Its style is so piquant, racy and refreshing ; its tone so frank, 
manly and independent, and its facts and legends so interesting, in con- 
nection with our own family history, that I am constrained to place it also 
in print; not only as a valuable and spicy addenda, but to secure its better 
and safer preservation. 

It is to be hoped that some one of the numerous and highly respectable 
descendants of Miles Morgan, of Springfield, will ere long prepare a 
full genealogy of that family, as a twin volume to this of his brother 
James ; the early history and materials already gathered affording unusual 
facilities for its easy and early completion. N. H. M. 



"A History of 
THE FAMILY OF MILES MORGAN, 

WHO EMIGRATED FROM ENGLAND, AND SETTLED AT SpRINGFIELD, 

Mass. A. D. 1636, 
compiled by titus morgan, jun. one of his descendants. 

Middletown, Oct. 1809." 

introductory remarks. 

The family of Morgan of which a brief account is given in the follow- 
ing pages, is of Welsh extraction. The ancient race from which they are 
descended have inhabited the mountains of Wales from time immemorial, 
and the name is still numerous in that country, as well as in other parts of 
Great Britain. But though our honest namesakes on the Cambrian Hills 
are no doubt able to trace their lineage up to a period some few years be- 
fore the deluge, (the Welsh being famous for their genealogical skill,) yet 
the Morgans of Massachusetts having lost all "legendary lore" of this 



228 APPENDIX. 

kind, have preserved no account of their family, not even traditional, be- 
yond their old ancestor, Miles Morgan, who was among the first planters 
of Springfield. It may therefore with the greatest propriety be said or 
sung, 

" What if our ancient but ignoble blood, 

Has crept through ' Welshmen' ever since the flood." 

We thus reply, Our family is young ; for at this day it would be utterly 
impossible to trace the genealogy of the family further back than to the 
old puritanic planter before mentioned, and whom we must therefore con- 
sider as its founder. Indeed his descendants can have no motives to carry 
their inquiries any higher — -family pride surely cannot furnish a motive — 
as there w^ere none of the name in Great Britain who, (to use a vulgar 
phrase) were able to make a noise in the world, prior to the migration of 
our old patriarch to New England ; though after that era three persons 
appeared who were of sufficient notoriety to preserve their names from 
oblivion, which accordingly have been handed down to us. 

During the usurpations of Oliver Cromwell, one of the name, for his 
intrepidity in ''fighting the battles of the Lord," (to adopt the ridiculous 
language of that day,) as also, no doubt, for his dexterity in ranting and 
exhorting, (a high recommendation in those days of religious hypocrisy,) 
was made a General by the usurper, and entrusted with the command of 
the forces which were sent to assist the French against the Spaniards, in 
the Low Countries, where they joined the army commanded by the cele- 
brated Marshal Turene, who soon after gained a great victory over the 
Spaniards at Dunes, chiefly by the means of these auxiliaries, who it seems 
as well knew how to play the warrior as the hypocrite, and who, it must 
be confessed, had the best masters to teach them the art of excelling in 
both characters. 

Another, a few years after made some noise as a Deistical writer, but 
was only a literary thief, having stolen the worst garbage of his infidel 
predecessors, which he jumbled into a system and published as his own. 

A third, about the beginning of the last century, was a physician of 
some learning and some note in the city of London. He was, however, 
severely lashed, under the title of the " Standard Bearer," as an egregious 
and disgusting pedant, by old Doctor Turner, in his " Letters to a Young 
Physician," where he is represented as follows : " In manners affected and 
solemn — in language inflated and bombastic — in observation and remark 
trite and shallow." 

But the principal theme of the old Doctor's irony, was the medical 
theory which he had embraced, and for which he was a zealous partizan. 
He belonged to the "Mechanical Sect" of physicians, whose theory? 
notwithstanding its absurdity, was at that time in some vogue. They 
supposed that diseases of all kinds were caused by obstructions, and 



APPENDIX. 229 

that the chemical medicines which were then becoming fashionahle, were 
the proper instruments for removing those obstructions. For, the minute 
particles of these medicines being, to their apprehension, in the form and 
shape of various implements which are used in the handicrafts, such as the 
wedge, the mallet, and the drill, &c. &c. these being taken into the aliment- 
ary canal and thence conveyed by absorption into the obstructed vessels, 
there raise a horrible clatter, by hammering, drilling, and driving away, at 
a strange rate, and thus merely by their mechanical action removing the 
obstructions and the disease together. [Do not laugh reader! greater 
men than the " Standard Bearer" adopted the same fantastic whims and 
became the blind votaries of the same extravagant and ridiculous theory.] 

Thus, the two first of these personages rendered themselves infamously 
famous ; the last became mechanically ridiculous. But we claim no rela- 
tionship with them. 

In America, but one person only of our name has been sufficiently 
notorious to have his deeds inscribed on the page of history. I allude to 
General Daniel Morgan, of Virginia. But whether the bravery with 
which he fought the battles of the Revolution against his lawful sovereign, 
has crowned his name with laurels which will not hereafter wither, must 
depend upon the suffrage of some future generation, which shall judge 
more impartially and dispassionately than the present, respecting the mo- 
tives and the conduct of those men, who began the work of revolution in 
America, which like a devouring flame, has spread over a great part of 
the habitable globe, with war and murder, ruin and devastation, plunder, 
oppression and tyranny following in its train — tyranny of the worst spe- 
cies — tyranny disguised in the stolen mantle of freedom. The result of 
all which has been the establishment of the most gigantic despotism that 
ever cursed the earth. Amidst the revolutionary convulsions of Europe, 
" a beast has arisen out of the sea,"* more cruel and rapacious than " the 
fiercest brute that roams the deserts of Numidia," before whom nations 
tremble and princes bow. An unprincipled and aspiring wretch — a mon- 
ster familiarized to the commission of the foulest crimes, by artfully im- 
proving the events of this tremendous era — has been enabled to rise from 
the dunghill upon which he was born, to sovereign sway ; — to claim and 
to receive imperial honors — to seize and to retain a more enormous degree 
of power than was ever before held by mortal hands, and which threatens 
the freedom of the whole human race. 

As the revolution in America was but the first scene in the dreadful 
drama which is now acting on the stage of the world, (when it will be 
concluded God only knows,) surely the time must arrive when the bless- 
ings! resulting from that event will be more justly estimated than they

have ever yet been. But this is neither the time or the place for political 
disquisition. 

The best character that I find any where in books, to which the name 
of Morgan stands affixed, is recorded by Doctor Smollet, and this alas ! is 
a fictitious character. I mean the honest Welsh surgeon who makes so 
interesting a figure in the adventures of "■ Roderick Random," and who is 
again brought upon the stage in the "Adventures of Peregrine Pickle." 
Live forever! with all thy oddities and humor! honest son of the creative 
fancy of Smollet ! I respect and honor thee more than all the revolution- 
ary Generals, Mechanical Doctors and Deistical scribblers that ever 
existed. 

Having thus shown that our family must shine without borrowed lustre 
OF not shine at all, it only remains that we acknowledge its humble 
character. 

The Morgans of Massachusetts have generally been husbandmen. 
Agriculture has, with very few exceptions, been their occupation. If, 
therefore, the "Philosopher of Monticello" was correct in asserting that 
" the farmers are God's chosen people, if He ever had a chosen people in 
the world," then certainly our family may boast of this peculiar honor 
To this Jeffersonian " Title of Distinction^' however, the scribbler of these 
pages is compelled to forego his claim. His wayward fate led him into 
the mazes of ^sculapian lore, and he is doomed to earn a scanty subsist- 
ence by acting the part of a Physician in the tragi-comedy of Life. But 
at present being himself deprived of health, and by this means confined 
for the most part to his own habitation, he endeavors to beguile the 
"wearisome days" which are "appointed to him," as well as he is able. 

One resource is his pen, with which he has attempted to amuse himself 
in making this compilation of Names and Dates and Characters, &c. &c. 
But being willing also to amuse others, he now Dedicates this production 
of his hours of gloomy leisure to his "kindred according to the flesh," — the 
Morgans of Massachusetts, who alone have any concern with it. Should 
they be disposed to censure the performance, or to cavil at certain opin- 
ions which have been indulged by the writer — some of which, it is con- 
fessed, are very different from the popular notions of the day — his answer 
is readv. In regard to what he has written he studied no persons humor 
but his own, his principal object while thus employing his time and his 
pen, was his own amusement and gratification.

APPENDIX TO THE FOREGOING. 

Since writing the foregoing, another person of our name has recurred 
to my recollection, whose character may be worth recording here. But 
I shall place it by itself, not choosing that it should appear among the 
characters already mentioned, as I think it merits better company. 

The person to whom T have reference is the late Doctor John Morgan, 
a native of Pennsylvania, born about the year 1730. He was educated 
in classic lore at the college of Philadelphia, and was " among the first of 
her sons who shared its public honors," — the institution having then been 
but recently established. On leaving college he entered upon the study 
of medicine under Dr. John Redman, of Philadelphia, with whom he 
served an apprenticeship of six years; at the conclusion of which term he 
" devoted himself to a military life, principally with a view of becpming 
more skillful in his profession, and was for four years engaged in very ex- 
tensive practice in the army, among diseases of every kind." This was 
during the war between Great Britain and France, which began in 1755, 
and was at this time raging in America. 

About the year 1760 he went to Europe, where he spent five years 
under the most celebrated masters, in every branch of medicine, sparing 
no labor or expense to store his mind with an extensive acquaintance in 
every science that related any way to the duty of a physician, expending 
in this pursuit a sum of money of which the very interest would prove no 
contemptible income. 

While in Europe, Dr. Morgan attended the practice of the public hos- 
pitals of the city of London. At Edinburgh, he became member of the 
celebrated medical school of that city; attended the lectures of the differ- 
ent professors, and was honored with the degree of Doctor of Physic. At 
Paris, also, and afterwards at Padua, he continued to pursue his favorite 
studies, under the professors of those famous seats of medical learning. 
His ardent thirst for literary improvement carried him at length to Rome, 
where, besides attending to the main object of his travels, he had an oppor- 
tunity to survey the splendid ruins of that ancient metropolis of the world. 

During his residence in Italy he gained the friendly notice of the great 
Morgagni,* by whom he was treated with much kindness and regard. It 



*"John Baptist Morgagni, M. D. First Professor of Anatomy in the University of 
Padua, and member of the most eminent societies of Europe, was bom at Ferli, in Italy, 
1682. At the age of twenty he taught Anatomy with the highest reputation. When 
nearly eighty he published his large and valuable work, ' De causis et sedibus morborum.' 
This last and most important of all his productions, will afford convincing evidence of 
his industry and abilities, to the latest posterity. His other works are in a great measure 
strictly anatomical. On the 5th of December, 1771, when nearly ninety years of age, 
Death ended his glorious career in the learned world." 



232 APPENDIX. 

is related that Morgagni, in conversation with our medical traveler, told 
him that their names were originally the same, the Italian idiom making 
the only difference betwixt Morgan and Morgagni. When Morgan left 
Italy, the venerable professor, as a memorial of his friendship and esteem, 
presented him with his learned and valuable works. Having thus spent 
fifteen years in the acquisition of knowledge and professional skill, Doctor 
Morgan returned to his native country, in 1765, and entered with consid- 
erable eclat upon medical practice in the city of Philadelphia. 

Soon after his return, a proof that high expectations from his known 
talents and industry, were entertained by the public, he was appointed a 
professor of the theory and practice of physic, in the College of Philadel- 
phia — the first medical professor, in the first medical school, ever instituted 
in America. 

The plan of establishing a regular course of instruction in the various 
branches of the healing art, being thought by many, a project of uncertain 
issue, considering the infant state of the country, the professor elect in his 
inaugural discourse, " delivered at a public commencement held in the 
College of Philadelphia, May, 1765," with all the strength of argument, 
urged the necessity and utility of the undertaking ; and with eloquence 
and pathos called upon the public to patronize and encourage the infant 
institution. This discourse was soon after published. It displays uncom- 
mon genius, learning and observation. 

As a proof of the high estimation in which his character was held, 
abroad as well as at home, it will be sufficient to notice that at this time, 
(viz. in 1765, when he was about thirty-five years of age,) he had received 
the following honorable tokens of literary distinction: "M. D., F. R. S. 
London ; Corresponding Member of the Royal Academy of Surgeons, at 
Paris; Member of the Arcadian Belles Lettres Society, at Rome; Licen- 
tiate of the Royal College of Physicians, in London, and in Edinburgh ; 
and Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine, in the College of 
Philadelphia." 

Doctor Morgan, the winter succeeding his appointment, entered upon 
the duties of his professorship, and continued to deliver an annual course 
of medical lectures, until the commencement of the revolutionary contest, 
when he was appointed by Congress, Physician General to the American 
Army. But jealousies and suspicions being excited against him, he was 
dismissed from his station, after having performed the duties of it but a 
short time. Being in possession of a competent fortune, disgusted with 
the ill treatment which he had received, he now relinquished all medical 
employment, and lived in retirement ever after. The time of his death I 
can not learn ; it however happened some years ago. 
Vide conjecture, page 35, in No. 178. 



A FAMILY EEOOED, &o. 



3039 Miles Morgan, from whom the family of that name in Massa- 
chusetts is descended, was a native of Great Britain,* but in regard to the 
particular town in which he first saw the light, or what was the condition, 
or occupation of the family to which he belonged, no account has been 
transmitted to us, either by himself or his immediate descendants. 

He however resided several years in the city of Bristol, from whence 
he with two brothers who were older than himself, sailed for New Eng- 
land, and arrived at Boston in April, 1636. 

One of these brothers,! (name lost,) settled at Plymouth.^ His family 
afterwards removed to Connecticut, and settled in the Eastern part of that 
Colony. His descendants are very numerous. 

The other of these brothers, John Morgan, went to Virginia, and settled 
in that Province. It is said, that observing the bigotry and the persecu- 
ting spirit of those Godly Puritans, who though their professed motive for 
removing to these Western regions was the enjoyment oi religious liberty, 
yet would tolerate none whose sentiments were not in perfect unison with 
their own, he quitted these meek disciples of John Calvin with disgust and 
indignation, resolving to try his fortune in another clime. 

Soon after the arrival of these brothers at Boston, a number of families 
emigrated from Roxbury, and planted the town of Springfield. § 

Miles Morgan joined himself to these emigrants, and accompanied them 
in their enterprise. On their arrival at their place of destination, the land 
upon what is now the Main Street in Springfield, was divided into shares 
and distributed by lot among the settlers. The tract of land which was 
allotted to Morgan, extended on the south side of Ferry Lane from the

X Quere? He settled at Koxbury; see history of James the first, of New London. 

^ William Pyncheon, Esq. was at the head of this party. The pm-chase which they 
made of the Indians, included Springfield, in its ancient extent, i. e. the tract of land that 
comprises the present towns of Springfield, West Springfield, Wilbraham, Ludlow, and 
Longmeadow, Mass.; comprehending also the towns of Suffield and Enfield, in Conn. Mr. 
Pyncheon had been a man of property and distinction in England, and was one of the 
patentees of the Colony of Massachusetts- His descendants still possess the old family 
seat in Springfield. It is an ancient brick pile of singular construction, and doubtless was 
once thought elegant.

Main Street to the River. It is a rich and beautiful tract. There are a 
number of houses now built upon it, it being divided into several smaller 
lots.* 

Having taken possession of his land and made some progress in impro- 
ving it, our honest progenitor began to ponder upon the shrewd observa- 
tion of the wise King of Israel, "two are better than one," and at length 
concluded himself in urgent want of a wife, and determined to procure this 
"orood thing" without delay. The following account of his courtship and 
marriage is preserved. It would agree very well with the times of patri- 
archal simplicity, and for the promptitude and dispatch with which the 
business was conducted might compare with the account which the Hebrew 
historian has given us, of the manner in which Isaac of old obtained his 
Rebecca. There is this difference, however ; the Jewish patriarch trans- 
acted his business by proxy ; ours ''managed his own affairs in his own 
way." But to the story. 

On his passage from England he formed an acquaintance with a young 
woman who belonged to a family which on their arrival settled at Beverly. 
To her he determined to prefer his suit. This he did by letter, in which 
he proposed to her to become his wife, and the sharer of his dubious for- 
tunes in the wilderness. To this frank proposal, she with equal frankness 
(for coquetry it seems was not then in fashion.) wrote him an explicit 
answer, and avowed her willingness to comply with his wishes. Her 
suitor, it appears, was resolved to prosecute the affair like a man of busi- 
ness. On receiving an answer so favorable to his inclinations, he imme- 
diately engaged two of his friends and an Indian, to attend him in his 
matrimonial expedition, and departed "with all convenient speed," taking 
with them an old horse for the purpose of conveying the household stuff 
of the intended bride, to her future habitaiion ; and their muskets, with 
which they might '' put to flight the armies of the aliens," who might 
perchance molest them in their pilgrimage to and from " the land of the 
people in the East." 

Prosperity attended the journey of our patriarchal ancestor, and the 
hymeneal torch was kindled on his arrival. 

The matrimonial contract having been "satisfied in due form," the old 
pack horse received his destined burden; the bridegroom and his com- 
panions shouldered their muskets, and thus escorted the bride to Spring- 
field, who walked with them on foot, the whole distance from Beverly to 
that place, viz. about an hundred and twenty miles. Surely these were 
Amazonian times, when women had strength, and were not too squeamish 



* The spot upon which our old patriarch lived and died, and which was possessed by 
his children after him, is now [1809] occtipied by Dr. Chauncey Brewer. It is very 
pleasantly situated on the South side of Ferry Lane, about twenty rods from the River.

to exert it. Female, and effeminate, I suppose, were not then words of 
synonymous meaning. By this marriage Morgan had a numerous family 
of children. 

In 1675, Springfield was attacked by the Indians, who burnt a consid- 
erable part of the town. A few fortified houses only, in which the people 
were mostly collected, escaped the conflagration. In Morgan's house a 
number of people had taken refuge. A party of Indians attacked the 
house, but their fire was returned with such spirit and success by those 
within, several of whom were keen marksmen,* that the assailants found 
it dangerous to appear in sight of the windows and loop-holes, and after 
some hours were glad to sheer off. Thirty houses, besides barns and out- 
houses, were destroyed in the town at this time. Two of the inhabitants, 
Mr. Pyncheon and Mr. Purchase, sustained a loss of £1,000 each. This 
was the first damage which the town had suffered since its settlement. 

What year Morgan married his wife, as before related, or what was his 
age at that time, can not now be ascertained. There is a tradition that 
when he accompanied the Roxbury emigrants to Springfield, he was short 
of twenty-one years of age, (though probably not many months,) and that 
he deceived them, in respect to his age, in order to draw his share of the 
lands; none being entitled to share in the distribution who were under the 
age of twenty-one years. According to the records of the town of Spring- 
field, his eldest child was born in 1644. It is therefore most probable 
that he lived a bachelor until 1643; when, allowing him to have been of 
the age of twenty- one in 1636, he was twenty-eight years old. This I 
think we may conclude, the era of his marriage with the Beverly damseL 
^Her namet I have not been able to discover, the marriage not being in- 
serted in the records, perhaps on account of its taking place in another 
town. All the information which those records afford us respecting the 
family of Miles Morgan and his wife, is contained in the following extracts : 

3039 Mary, dau. of Miles Morgan, born 12th month, 14th day, 1644. J 

3040 Jonathan, son of said Miles, was born 9th month, 16th day, 1646. 

3041 David, born 7th month, 23d day, 1648, m. Mary Clark. 

3042 Pelatiah, born 5th month, 17th day, 1650, killed by Indians. 

3043 Isaac, born 3d month, 12th day, 1652. 

* Some of iMorgan's sons are said to have been perfect Nimrods at the laudable business 
of Indian hunting. One of them, Pelatiah, was afterwards killed by the Indians, (anno 
1676,) in Chicopee, on the West side of the River. 

X The Puritanic year, it is said, began with March, which they called first month. It 
appears that during the holy times of the " Grand Etbeliion,^' it was thought profane to dis- 
tinguish the months by those names of pagan original which they had formerly borne, 
though after the restoration of King Charles 2d, the good puritans were constrained to con- 
form to the ancient usage in this respect.

3046 Mercy, born 5th month, 18th day, 1658. 

[Prudence Gilbert,] first wife of Miles Morgan, died llth month, 14th 

day, 1660. 
Sergeant [Miles] Morgan and Elizabeth Bliss were married February 

15, 1669. 

3047 Nathaniel, their son, was born June 14th, 1671. 

Miles Morgan died May 28th, 1699. 

The age of this old patriarch at the time of his decease is not mentioned 
in the records. But if our preceding calculations respecting his age are 
correct, he was born about the year 1615, and consequently was eighty- 
four years old when he died. 

The children of Miles Morgan by his first wife, settled in different parts 
of the town of Springfield, on the East side of the River. Some of his 
descendants were among the first planters of Brimfield, in which, and the 
neighboring towns, they have a numerous and respectable progeny. 

Nathaniel, (3047) the only child of Miles Morgan by his second mar- 
riage, was born as just mentioned, June 14th, 1671. He was married to 
Hannah Bird, January 19th, 1691, when he was but nineteen years of 
age. He settled on the West side of the River, (West Springfield,) in 
what is called Chicopee Street, on the lot at present occupied by Mr. N. 
Loom is, on the East side of the Street, where he lived to the age of eighty- 
one years, and died August 30th, 1752. Mrs. Morgan, his wife, died 
June 7th, 1751, at the age of . 

He had seven sons and two daughters. All the sons and one of the 
daughters lived to the age of seventy years, and some of them were much 
older at their decease. Their names were, 

3048 Nathaniel, born Feb. 16th, 1692. 

3049 Samuel, born 1694, died Dec. 1799. 

3050 Ebenezer, born 1696. 

3051 Hannah, born 1698. 

3052 Miles, born 1700. 

3053 Joseph, born Dec. 3d, 1702, m. Mary Stebbins. 

3054 James, born 1705. 

3055 Isaac, born 1708, died 7th Nov. 1796. 

3056 Elizabeth, born 1710. 

These all married and settled in what is now the first parish in West 
Springfield, excepting one daughter, who died young. They possessed 
some of the finest farms in that parish, but these are now mostly occupied 
by other hands, their descendants having removed to other parts, so that 
there are not more than two or three families of the name remaining in 
that parish. Sic tempora mutant. 



APPENDIX. 237 

Mr. Joseph Morgan, (3053) my paternal grandfather, was born Dec. 
3d, 1702, old style. In May, 1735, he married Mary Stebbins, (daughter 
of Mr. Benjamin Stebbins,) who was born July 6th, 1712. They lived 
many years in the old parish, where seven of their children w^ere born. 
In 1751, they removed to the North parish, in West Springfield, (as it is 
at present called.) At that time there were not more than seven or eight 
families in what now constitutes that large parish. They settled upon a 
farm completely new, upon which they passed the remainder of their lives. 

They had six sons and two daughters, viz. 

3057 Joseph, born Feb. 19th, 1736, m. Experience Smith. 

3058 Titus, who died an infant. 

3059 Titus, 2d, born July 19th, 1740, married Sarah Morgan. 

3060 Lucas, born Feb. 26, 1743, m. Tryphene Smith. 

3061 Elizabeth, born Dec. 23d, 1745, m. Thomas White. 

3062 Judah, born March 22d, 1749, m. EHzabeth Shivoy. 

3063 Jesse, twin of Judah, m. Mercy Stebbins. 

3064 Hannah, born Nov. 29th, 1751, m. John Legg. 

Mr. Joseph Morgan, Sen. (3053) died o^ phthisis, Nov. 7th, 1773, in 
the 72d year of his age. His wife long survived him. She died Dec. 7th, 
1798, aged 86 years. Their children entered the connubial state as 
follows : 

Joseph, (3057) married Experience Smith, dau. of Mr. David Smith, 
Sept. 9th, 1765, by whom he had six daughters and one son. Two of the 
daughters died in childhood ; the rest of the family are living. 

Titus, (3059) married Sarah Morgan, (3076) dau. of Mr Ebenezer 
Morgan, of Springfield, May 19th, 1763. They have eight sons and one 
daughter, who are all living. 

Lucas, (3060) married Tryphene Smith, a sister of the preceding, Dec. 
21st, 1768, and by her had eight children, four sons and four daughters. 
Of this number he has lost two daughters and one son, who, as well as 
their mother, died of phthisis. After the death of , his first wife, which 
happened Feb. 20th, 1793, he married Betsey Eastman, daughter of Mr.

238 APPENDIX. 

Hannah, (3064) married John Legg, Dec. 2oth, 1782, by whom she 
has five children. 

Five sons and one daughter of Joseph (3053) and Mary are still living; 
most of them have grand-children ; the three eldest, a numerous train of 
them, and rapidly increasing. 

Mr. Ebenezer Morgan, (3072) my maternal grrndfather, was grand- 
son of Miles Morgan, (3039) and the ?on of David, (3041) the second son 
of said Miles. This David was born, according to the Springfield records, 
as before quoted, " 7th month, 23d day, 1 648." He married Mary Clark, 
about 1673, by whom he had a large family, viz. 

CHILDREN OF DAVID, (3041.) 

3065 Prudence, born 1(374. 

3066 Peletiah, born 1677. 

3067 David, born 1679. 

3068 Abigail, born 1681. 

3069 John, born 1682. 

3070 Jonathan, born 1685. 

3071 Mercy or Mary, born 

3072 Ebenezer, born March 7th, 1692, m. Mary Horton. 

3073 Benjamin, born 1695. 

Mr. Ebenezer Morgan, (3072) was born March 7th, 1692. He 
married Mary Horton, January, 1719, and settled as a farmer, at the 
"North End" of the town of Springfield. He lost his wife in 1736, who 
died without children. His second wife was Sarah Warner, (my grand- 
mother,) to whom he was married June 20th, 1737. She was born Feb. 
2d, 1710. They had two sons and three daughters, viz. 

3074 Ebenezer, born June 12th, 1738, m. Miriam Kilbourn. 

3075 Samuel, born Feb. 2d, 1740, m. Abigail Cooley. 

3076 Sarah, born Nov. 18th, 1742, married Titus Morgan, (3059.) 

3077 Catharine, born Dec. 31st, 1744, m. Moses Cooley. 

3078 Chloe, born Oct. 14th, 1747, m. John Burt. 

These are all living, and are connected in matrimonial life in the follow- 
ing manner : 

Ebenezer, (3074) married IMiriam Kjlboum, Feb. 1766, and by her 
had six sons and two daughters. 

Samuel, (3075) married Abigail Cooley, Nov. 1766, by whom he has 
seven daughters and one son. 

Sarah, (3076) married Titus Morgan, (3059) as has already been 
mentioned. 



APPENDIX. 239 

Catharine, (3077) married Moses Cooley, May, 1763, by whom she 
had five children. He dying in 1777, she was married to James Melvin 
Jan. 1779, by whom she had three children. 

Chloe, (3078) was married to Mr. John Burt, May 10th, 1782, and 
by him has had four children, of which number she has lost a son and a 
daughter. 

Among the earlier planters on the West side of the River, in the 
present town of Springfield, was Peletiah Morgan, (3066) eldest son of 
David Morgan, whom we have just mentioned. He settled upon the lot 
now occupied by Capt. Eldredge, at the South end of Chicopee Street. 
But none of his posterity are now remaining in that town, and not more 
than two or three families of the descendants of Nathaniel Morgan, (3047) 
as has been observed, are to be found in the old parish. There are still, 
however, a number of families in the North parish, who are descended 
from Joseph Morgan, (3053) his son. In Springfield, also, the ancient 
seat of the family, where the race was once numerous, two, or at most three, 
families only remain. Thus the posterity of Miles Morgan are "scattered 
abroad." They are very numerous, however. They are dispersed in 
different parts of New England, Vermont, New York, &c. 

Mr. Titus Morgan, (3059) and Sarah Morgan, (3076) my parents, 

the former of whom was born, as has been already mentioned, July 19th, 

1740 ; the latter, Nov. 18th, 1742 ; were joined in matrimony 

May 19th, 1763. Their children consist of eight sons and one 

daughter, viz. 

3079 Erastus, b. March 29th, 1764, Thursday, m. Clarissa Chapin. 

3080 Gaius, b. Jan. 14th, 1766, Tuesday, m. Abigail Austin. 

3081 Quartus, twin of Gaius, m. Lorane Tuttle. 

3082 Julius, born Feb. 17th, 1768, Wednesday, m. Azubah Day. 

3083 Pliny, born Feb. 11th, 1770, Sunday, m. Lucretia Austin. 

3084 Archippus, born May 17th, 1772, Sunday, m. Pamelia Taylor. 

3085 Titus, born Dec. 23d, 1776, Monday, m. Mary Spencer. 

3086 Sally, born May 21st, 1779, Friday, m. Joseph Day. 

3087 Hiram, born June 21st, 1781, Thursday, m. Martha Montague. 

They are all living in the matrimonial state, which they entered into in 
the following order. 

Erastus, (3079) married Clarissa Chapin, of West Springfield, Dec. 
31st, 1789. She was born December 23d, 1764. 

Gaius, (3080) married Abigail Austin, of Northampton, January, 1791.

29th, 1789. 



240 APPENDIX. 

Julius, (3082) married Azubah Day, of West Springfield, January 
4th, 1798.

gail, April 30th, 1795. 

Archippus, (3084) married Paraelia Taylor, of Montgomery, Sep-

14th, 1802. 

Hiram, (3087) married Martha Montague, of Norwich, Conn. Septem-

Some of these have large families of children ; all have posterity but 
the writer of this. He and his consort were once blessed with a little son, 
who was born Saturday, May 25th, 1808, and whom they named Titus 
Junius. His continuance, however, in this "vale of tears," was but tran- 
sient. On Sunday, the 23d of April, 1809, this infantile flower was trans- 
lated from earth, to "bloom in the garden above." "Of such is the king- 
dom of Heaven." 

Erastus, (3079) and wife, Clarissa, have the following children, viz. 

3088 Calvin, born Oct. 20th, 1790.

As this marriage of George H. and Sarah S. (3162) appears to be the 
tirst and only known intermarriage between the two lines of James and 
Miles, brothers, except perhaps the one noted on page 240, it may be in- 
teresting to trace the degree of kinship between the parties.

app'endix. 245 



The following is found among the papers of Titus Morgan, without quotation 
or other credit mark, and therefore presumed to be original. I do not remem- 
ber to have seen it in print, but deem it worthy of presentation to the family 
as a token that the minstrel's art " to charm by the magic of sweet numbers" 
is not altogether alien to our family. N. H. M. 

A Fragment 

Addressed to James Currie, M. D., F. R. S. of Liverpool, on his edition of the 
works of Eobert Burns, for the benefit of the widow and family of that im- 
mortal bard. 

See plenty exults in her green waving blade, 

As the light breeze sweeps gently along, 
And labor reclines in the soft, easy shade. 

Where the red-breast awakes his sweet song. 
How beauteous the landscape when summer is drest 

With a cestus of roses so gay ; 
But ah ! when shall Scotia with pleasure be blessed, 

Since her Burns sleeps so cold in his clay. 

Expands not the breast when the sounds of delight 

Are heard at the still hour of eve ? 
When the villagers sport by the moon's silver light, 

The day's wasting cares to relieve ? 
His too, was the rapture such themes could impart, 

As the rustic maids chanted his lay. 
For sympathy strung the fine chords of his heart, 

But that heart now lies cold in its clay. 

From his country's blue hills, while the sun's golden beam 

Gives life to all nature around, 
Or through her lone glen winds the serpentine stream, 

Shall the voice of her minstrel resound. 
When love, with light heart, steals unseen to the bower, 

His strains shall fresh transports convey — 
For his spirit shall reign in that dear, blissfiil hour, 

Though his body lies cold in the clay. 

Fancy wove the rich web of his vision, divine, • 

With the rays of the soft blushing morn ; 
His path, nature strewed with her wild flowers so fine, 

And the dew, trembling, hung on the thorn. 
The painted trout leap'd from the smooth gliding Ayr, 

The lambkins danced, sporting away. 
While his lyre breathed the notes that his soul could ensnare, 

But now he lies cold in his clay. 



246 APPENDIX. 

And still o'er the mountains and through the deep vale, 

As he sung of his Scotia so dear, 
Want hung on his footsteps to tell her sad tale, 

For his Jane and her offspring were near. 
Ye fathers who feel, and ye sons who can love, 

Your regard to his orphans display. 
And with Currie's warm heart your kind sympathies prove, 

Since the minstrel sleeps cold in the clay. 



BRIEF NOTICES 

OF OTHER EARLY EMIGRANTS, OF THE 

NAME OF MORGAN; 

But WHETHER ANT OF THEM WERE OF THE SAME ORIGINAL STOCK 

FROM WHICH OUR ANCESTOR, JaMES, OF NeW LoNDON, 

WAS DESCENDED, IS NOT KNOWN. 

Richard (Rose) Morgan, of New London, 1679, in that part now 
Waterford; died 1698. His widow, Hopestill, died 1st June, 1712. He 
left three sons, John, Richard and Benjamin, and several daughters. 
The appellative (Rose) was currently applied to him and many of his 
descendants, probably, to distinguish them from the family of our James. 
I have notes of many of his descendants, and there is such a correspond- 
ence in baptismal names, as strongly indicates a kinship between this 
family and the family of James. Great caution has been necessary in 
tracing the descendants of James, to keep the two lines distinct. 

Bennett, Plymouth, came over in the "Fortune," 1621; went from 
Plymouth, probably, before 1627, as he did not share there in division of 
cattle, but whore to not known. 

James, of Boston, had sons, David, born 10th Nov. 1676, and Jonathan, 
19th Nov. 1680 : perhaps the James whose high temper, under the influ- 
ence of intoxication, cost him his life, March 11th, 1686, at the age of 30, 
as mentioned by Rev. Cotton Mather, in his " Magnalia," Vol. II. page 
351, [or Book VI. p. 40-13, as cited by Savage, probably from another 
edition,] but who is nevertheless, described as a man of more than com-

mon intelligence and culture, and not actuated by malice or depraved 
habits. I can perhaps better afford an allusion to this case, than to be 
suspected by the eagle-eyed antiquarians, of a stuuied purpose to suppress 
it. He was not at all of our ancestral stock ; no one of whose names has 
ever shown a tarnished record, although in those early days the most 
trivial delinquencies were rigidly noticed. 

Joseph, of Lynn, Mass. m. Deborah Hart, 12th July, 1669. 

Moses, a soldier under Capt. Turner, at Hadley, Mass. 1676. 

Richard, Dover, N. H. 1659, probably same man of Exeter, 1684. 

Roger, Charlestown, Mass. died 23d Dec. 1675. 

Samuel, Marblehead, 1674. 

William, New Hampshire, 1665, probably same one in Amesbury, 
Mass. 1677. 

Robert, Saco, perhaps Kennebec; see "Sullivan," page 287. 

Francis, Kittery, Maine, 1664, administrator on estate of Capt. John 
Mitchell, 1665. 

Owen, New Haven, Conn. m. widow Joan Bryan, 1650; was in Nor- 
walk, 1656. 

Robert, Salem, Mass. 1637; admitted to church, 1650; had children, 
Samuel, Luke, Joseph, Benjamin, (all four baptized 23d June, 1650;) 
Robert, Jr. baptized 1 5th Dec. 1650 ; Bethia, baptized 29th May, 1653; 
Aaron, baptized 24th May, 1663, and Moses. His wife, Margaret, and 
all these eight children, except Luke and Aaron, are named in his wilh 
r4th Jan. 1672 ; will proved June, 1673. ^^^ — -^ 

James, came from Wales, about 1700; settled in what is now the town 
of Eastchester, Westchester Co. N. Y.; died there, about 1764, the date 
of his will ; had sons, James and Caleb, and probably other children. I 
have notes of several of these descendants, in N. Y. state. 

Ebenezer, came from England, and settled in Rhode Island, about 
1750 ; had four sons, (and perhaps daughters.) Nathaniel m. Eleanor 
Randall; five children; settled and died in Voluntown, Conn.; Peter m. 
Martha Lewis ; settled in Central New York ; four children ; Seth, m. 
Desire Bromley ; settled in Norwich, Conn. ; two children ; has descend- 
ants still living there ; and Wheeler, settled and died in Voluntown ; four 
sons, (perhaps daughters;) one of his sons, William A. and grandson, 
John A. still living in Norwich, Conn. 

Howell, 1637, is mentioned in a recent paper of the Maryland His- 
torical Society, as one of the colonists settled at that date, at Kent Island, 
in Chesapeake Bay, but no further account is given. 



248 APPENDIX. 

Who was William Morgan, the Martyr of Antimasonic notoriety ? In 
my researches I have watched for his appearance, as a descendant, either 
from some one of our lines from James, or from some other line of the 
name, but have never found the least clue to his ancestry. His origin 
appears shrouded in as deep mystery as his exit. 

It may be interesting to recall some of the incidents of this remarkable 
case. He was a printer in Batavia, N. Y. and a Freemason of high de- 
gree. In the autumn of 1826 it became known that he was privately 
printing for publication, a book disclosing the secrets of the masonic order, 
in violation of his own oaths and obligations as a member. A few over- 
zealous and unscrupulous masons, dressed in disguise and wearing ma.>-k-. 
suddenly, one evening, seized him; forced him into a close carriage; 
drove off rapidly to Lake Ontario, and probably sunk him in its depths; as 
he was never seen or heard of afterwards. A wild excitement was at 
once kindled into a flame in the community, which rapidly spread through- 
out the Union. An " Antimasonic Party" sprung into existence, so in- 
tense in its energy as to nearly override all other issues ; controlling the 
popular elections in several of the States, and influencing largely, if not 
controlling, the next succeeding Presidential canvass. The origin of all 
that class of statutes, prohibiting the administration of "extra-judicial 
oaths," now existing in several of the States, may be traced to this event. 
Large rewards were offered by various public authorities, and private 
associations, for the discovery of his body, or of the parties guilty of his 
abduction, but, strangely enough, without securing either object. Numer- 
ous prosecutions were commenced against every suspected person, and 
some were convicted on trivial charges, remotely connected with the ab- 
duction ; but no direct or serious charge was ever sustained. 

The public press of the day, teemed with a thousand varying rumors 
concerning him ; sometimes that his body had been found, here, or there ; 
sometimes that he had been seen alive in Smyrna, Japan, or elsewhere, 
but no authentic tidings ever came to light. The latest published report 
was, that he was spoken by the ship " Flying Dutchman," at sea, alone 
in a stone canoe, with a cast iron paddle, sculling himself around Cape 
Horn, at the rate of thirty miles an hour ; but even this was rather dis- 
credited by the public, and it was generally believed that he was murdered, 
and his body sunk in the Lake.
