"IF" there exists any such thing as 'The Word of God'; [and ALL evidence proves such does exist:]

"THEN" by inherent definition - it must be:

      "In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, . . ." John 1:1 (and other Scriptures),
Thus 'GOD'S WORD' can have no lesser standard than stated above;

    By John K. Allen

    Pioneers in thought and action, blazing new paths in mind and erecting new homes in the wilderness because of their desire to worship God according to their expanding ideas



    George Morton and Some of His: Descendants

    By John K. Allen

    George Morton was one of the founders of the colony of New Plymouth in Massachusetts, having been of that company of Puritans who left England in the early part of the seventeenth century, found a brief asylum in Holland, and came to America to establish a Christian state.

    The causes leading to the settlement of Plvmouth are so well set forth by Nathaniel Morton,- a son of George Morton, in "New England's Memorial,"* that his statement may well introduce this record of a part of the family which thus came to be founded in America.

    He says, in beginning what has been justly called the "corner stone'' of New England history :

    "In the year 1602 divers Godlv Christians of our English nation, in the North of England, being studious of reformation, and therefore not only witnessing against human inventions, and additions in the worship of God, but minding most the positive and practical part of 'living institutions, they entered into covenant to walk with God, and one with another, in the enjoyment of the ordinances of God, according to the primitive pattern of the word of God.

    But finding by experience they could not peaceably enjoy their own liberty in their native country, without offense to others that were differently minded, they took up thoughts of removing themselves and their families into the Netherlands, which accordingly they endeavored to accomplish, but met with great hindrance;

    yet after some time the good hand of God removing obstructions, they thus obtained their desires; arriving in Holland, they settled themselves in the city of Leyden in the year 1610, and there they continued divers years in a comfortable condition, enjoying much sweet society and spiritual comfort in the ways of God,

    living peaceably amongst themselves, and being courteously entertained and lovingly respected by the Dutch, amongst whom they were strangers, having for their pastor Mr. John Robinson, a man of a learned, polished and modest spirit, pious and studying of the truth, largely accomplished with suitable gifts and qualifications to be a shepherd over this flock of Chris ;

    having also a fellow helper with him in the eldership, Mr. William Brewster, a man of approved piety, gravity and integrity, very eminently furnished with gifts suit- able to such an office."


This simple description of the beginning of a momentous movement gives but a faint hint of the severity of the conflict for religious freedom which began at the little village of Scrooby. There, in the drawing room of William Brewster at Scrooby :Manor, was formed that independent congregationalist church, under the leadership of John Robinson, numbering among its members that grave young man, William Bradford, later to become a brother-in-law of George Morton, and for thirty years the governor' New England's Memorial," etc., by Nathaniel Morton.

Secretary to the Court for the Jurisdiction of New Plymouth. Cambridge: 16Gy.

Governor of the colony, which both assisted in establishing. Among those members it is quite possible to imagine George Morton,t a thoughtful young man, scarcely more than twenty, but of excellent education and great strength of purpose. No list of the members of this church is known to George Morton, according: to Judge John Davis (see Preface to 5th Edition of "New England's Memorial," by Nathaniel Morton.

Boston: lS-26) had been an inhabitant of Austerfiold, the same village in the North of England from which came "William Bradford, governor of Plymouth Colony. Judge Davis also says George Morton was related to Governor Bradford by marriage, his wife Sarah being the governor's sister. This latter statement we now know to be an error. George Morton's wife, Juliana, was a sister of Alice, the second wife of Governor Bradford.

The maiden name of Governor Bradford's second wife was Alice Carpenter (see "Memoirs of American Governors," Jacob Bailey Moore. Washington: 1846, p. 88), a lady of extraordinary capacity and worth. It is said that an early attach- ment existed between Mr. Bradford and this lady, and that their marriage was pre- vented by her parents, on account of his inferior circumstances and rank. She after- wards married Sir Edward Southworth. Being now a widower (his first wife, whose maiden name was Dorothy May, having been drowned December 7, 1620, by acci- dentally falling from the deck of the Mayflower into the sea), Governor Bradford, by letters to England, made overtures to Lady Southworth, who was then a widow. She accepted his proposal, and with a generous resolution she embarked (on the Anne) in 1623 to meet her intended partner, knowing that he could not well leave his responsible station in the new settlement. (With her on the Anno were Mr. and Mrs. George Morton and their children, Mrs. Morton, who was Juliana Carpenter, being Mrs. Southworth 's sister.) Her two sons, Thomas and Constant Southworth, the younger of whom was only six years of age, came over with her, and she brought a handsome estate into the country. Her marriage (the fourth in the colony) with Governor Bradford took place on the 14th of August, 1623. She died in March, 1670, aged 80 years.

Of Mrs. Alice Bradford, Elder Faunce, in his eulogy, spoke concerning "her exertions in promoting the literary improvement and the good deportment of the rising generation, according to the accounts he had received of some of her co-tem- poraries." (See footnote of Judge Davis in "New England's Memorial," 5th Edi- tion. Boston: 1826, p. 104.)

In the Plvmouth Church records (see footnote on p. 460 of Collections of the Massachusetts "Historical Society, Vol. Ill, 4th series, 1856). under date of March 19-20, 1667, is a record of the' death, at Plymouth, of Mary Carpenter, sistor of Mrs. Alice (Southworth) Bradford, the wife of Governor Bradford, "being newly entered into the 91st year of her age. She was a Godly old maid, never married."

Priscilla Carpenter, another daughter of Alexander Carpenter, of Wrentham, England, m. John Cooper, of Scituate in 16.34, she being then the widow of WUiiam Wright. He removed in 1639 to Barnstable, and is said by Savage to have died there without children.

The following is the Carpenter genealogy in England:

1. John Carpenter, English member of Parliament, 1323.

2. Richard Carpenter, b. 1335; m. Christina — ; buried at St. MartinB,

Outwich, London.

3. John Carpenter, brother of the famous town clerk of London.

4. John Carpenter.

5. William Carpenter, b. 1440; d. 1520.

6. James Carpenter.

7. John Carpenter.

8. WiUiam Carpenter.

9. Alexander Carpenter, of Wrentham, b. 1560. 10. Juliana, m. George Morton.

Proofs: Carpenter genealogy.

exist, nor are the names known of all those self-exiled Englishmen who succeeded in escaping to Holland in 1610, but two years later it is known that George Morton was of their number, as in the Dutch records is found the record of his marriage, as follows :


"George Morton, merchant from York in England, accompanied by Thomas Morton, his brother, and Roger Wilson, his acquaintance, with Juliana Carpenter, maid from Baih in England, accompanied by Alexander Carpenter, her father, and Alice Carpenter, her sister, and Anna Robinson, her acquaintance.

"The banns were published July 6-16, 1612.

"The marriage took place 33 July-2 Aug., 1612."


"This is the first positive record of him. Back of this he has not been traced certainly. But there was a Morton family, ancient and honorable. in Haworth, adjoining Bawtry and Austeriield, the Pilgrim region. It owned a large estate. In this family there grew up a contemporary of William Bradford, who lived only a mile or two away, a George Morton. He is recorded. About the time of the departure of the Pilgrims to Hol- land he disappeared. Some four years later a George Morton, of about corresponding age, and the progenitor of the Morton family in America, turned up among the Pilgrims in Leyden. The inference is natural that the two George ^lortons were identical, and that the Haworth George Morton had become a Puritan and a Separatist, had left Haworth about 1607 or 1608, had passed a part or the whole of the interval at York, and by 1612 had joined his old neighbors in Leyden. Tliat a member of such a family should become a merchant — if he were one at York as well as in Leyden, which the Leyden record may imply — is accounted for by the fact that his own family was intensely Roman Catholic and would have been almost certain to disinherit liim."' Morton Dexter in private letter to the author.


As there is a possibility that the George Morton who is referred to by Morton Dexter as being cotemporary with William Bradford in the Scrooby neighborhood and the George ilorton who appeared in Leyden in 1612 were identical, it may be interesting to trace the ancestry of George Mor- ton, of Bawtry. The following is deduced from the Harleian Society's publications containing Joseph Hunters "Familiae Minorum Gentium" and the Herald's Visitations in Yorkshire. In its entirety as there pub- lished, it is an interesting "family tree'' and shows that Cardinal John Morton and Bishop Thomas Morton, both so celebrated in English history, were of this family. I give here the line of descent from Thomas in the fourteenth century, to George of Bawtry, the ninth, tenth and eleventh gen- erations being supplied from "Familiae Minorum Gentium" by Joseph Hunter, Vol. I, p. 241.

From the records of one branch of the Mortons in America, furnished me by E. P. Morton, Esq.. of Webster, Mass., I copied the following state- ment concerning the parentage of George M(irron ; Mr. Morton states that the information was furnished him by a cousin, now deceased, and he does not know what authority tlie statement rests upon:

^'Thomas ^lorton, b. in York, England, March 20, 1564. Dean of Glou- cester and Winchester; Bishop of Chester, 1615; of Coventry, 1618; of Ihirham, 1632; imprisoned in Tower of London, 1645, by Charles I.; d. September 22, 1659. George, his son, b. 1585; became a merchant at York; went to Leyden 1612 with Pilgrims; m. there in 1612 Julian, dau. of Alex Carpenter, of Wrentham. She was a sister of Alice Carpenter SouthM'orth, the second wife of Governor Bradford. In 1620 George came to England with the Pilgrims, but remained in London, acted as their agent and published 'Mourt's Eelation,' a compilation from the journals of Bradford and Winslow. In 1623 he came to Plymouth in the "Ann' and d. in 1624."

The unsupported statement that George Morton was a son of the Thomas Morton referred to is undoubtedly an error. The Tliomas Morton bom in York, March 20, 1564, became a verv' prominent prelate in the English Roman Catholic Church and his biography may be found in any standard biographical collection. He died a Bishop and undoubtedly had no issue.


The following quotation is from an article entitled, "In and About Scrooby," bv ^Morton Dexter, published in ''The Mayflower Descendant," Vol. II, pp. 194-0 :

"x\ long mile northwest from the Crown Inn (Bawtry) and in Haworth Parish lie? the lar^e Martin farm, the remainder of the large estate once owned by the ilorton family, an ancient and honorable house which has furnished, in its descendants, at least one governor and one chief-justice of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts.

"Much more interesting (than the Haworth parish church), although it has been 'restored" out of whatever antique beauty it may have had, is the old Morton Chapel, which, alrhough close to the houses of Bawtrv, really is just over the line in Haworrh. Three lumdred years or more ago the Mortons, then Roman Catholics, built and endowed this chapel, and also, just across the road, two or three little cottages as refuges for poor old women. It is pleasant to know that the pious purposes of the foun- ders have not failed to be fulfilled by their Protestant successors. Wor- ship still is held regularly in the church, which has become a 'chapel-of- ease' of the Bawtry parish church, and you may still see old women in the cottages who owe their enjoyjuent of homes, instead of becoming inmates of some great county asylum, to the beneficence of the past."


It does not seem possible at this time, with the information available in the United States, positively to determine the English ancestry of George Morton. I shall be glad if further search reveals it.


In a private genealogical record of one branch of George Morton'a desctndants, compiled by Stuart C. Wade, Esq., of New York, this inter- esting statement is made concerning the "Morton"' name in England and France :

"The name of Morton, Moreton and Mortaigne is earliest found in old Dauphine, and is still existant in France, where it is represented by the present Comtes and Marquises Morton de Chabrillon, and where the family has occupied many important positions.

"In the annals of the family there is a statement repeatedly met with, that as a result of a quarrel one of the name migrated from Dauphine, first to Brittany and then to Xormandy, where he joined William the Con- queror. Certain it is that among the followers of William, painted on the chancel ceiling of the ancient church of Dives in old Normandy, is that of Robert, Comte de Mortain. It also figures on Battle Abbey Roll, the Doiuesday Book, and the Xorman rolls, and ir is conjectured that the Count Robert, who was also half brother of William the Conqueror, by his mother Harlotto, was the founder of the English family of that name.

"In the Bayeux tapestr}- he is represented as of the Council of William, the result of which was the landing at Pevensey, the battle of Senlac or Hastings, and the conquest of England. The Reverend Mark .Vntony Lower, M. A., F. S. A., in his Dictionary of the Family Names of the United Kingdom (p. 229) supplies the most probable and reasonable origin of the family name of iloreton or ^lorton in this definition: 'Morton, an anglicized form of Mortain, a great baronial family founded in England by Robert, Earl of ilortaine, uterine brother of William the Conqueror.' This ancestral worthy deserves, as will be seen, a brief mention. Accord- ing to Sidney Lee's Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. XXXIX, p. 117, he was Count of ilortain, in the diocese of Avranches, France, was present at the Council of Lillebonne to discuss the invasion of England, contributed one hundred and twenty ships to the fleet, and himself fought

at the battle of Hasting:?. His possessions in England were larger than any other follower of William the Conqueror (Freeman, Xorman Con- quest, IV, p. 764) and have been estimated at 793 manors, (Brady, Intro- duction to Domesday, p. 13). He had 248 manors in Cornwall, 196 in Yorkshire, 99 in Northamptonshire, 75 in Devonshire, with a church and house in Exeter, 54 in Sussex and the borough of Pevensey, 49 in Dorset, 29 in Buckinghamshire, and one or more in ten other counties (Willis, I, p. 455). He had a castle of Mortain in Normandy and died in 1091. With such an origin for the name the map of England is found dotted with traces of ilorton place-names, and a place-name is one of the most frequent sources of a family name. Thus John, who lived at Morton, became John de Morton on the adoption of surnames and, abandoning tha "de,'* founded a family of Mortons."


The second reference to George Morton which we find is in the Dutch record of the marriage in Leyden, December 15-25, 1612, of Edward Pick- ering, '"'merchant from London" with '"'Maycken Stuws," with George Morton present as a witness.


George Morton is credited with having been the publisher in London of "Mourt's Relation," a volume of great interest because it was the first publication of information about the adventure of the Pilgrims. This volume was published under the name of "G. Mourt," and as to the iden- tification of ''G. Mourt" with George Morton, I quote the late Hev. Henry Martyn Dexter as follows :

"Who was "G. Mourt"? From* his preface (to "Mourt's Relation") two things are clear:

"1. He had been formerly associated with the writers of these jour- nals — Bradford and Winslow — to that degree that he could speak of them as "my "both known and faithful friends."

"2. He had always desired, and was now intending soon, to emigrate in person to join the company in Xew-Plymouth ; inasmuch as he says, 'Myselfe then much desired, and shortly hope to effect, if the Lord will, the putting to of my shoulder in tliis hope full business.'

"If in this case, as in each similar instance in the volume, the inituils only had been given, and we were simply called upon to interpret 'G. M.' no one probably would hesitate to read them George Morton, inasmuch as there was no other member of the Leyden-Plymouth Company, to all appearance, so likely as he was to have done such a work. He had joined them at least as early as 1612. He had been intrusted with public employ- ment on their behalf. He seems to have been in London as an agent for them, while those negotiations were going on with Weston and others, which, resulted in the sailinir of the Mavflower. He himself sailed with

his family for New Plymouth in the Anne, about the last of April, in the following year. He is the only G. il. of whom these things were true; in fact, the only G. M. of any sort loiown as being in their company, of \rhom they could be true.

"Unless we take the ground, then, that the difference between Mourt and Morton is suiScient to overturn these probabilities by suggesting another of greater weight, we shall inevitably come to the conclusion which was reached by Dr. Young {Citron. Plum., page 113), that 'G. Mourt' was none other than George Morton."

Two copies of the original edition of "Mourt's Relation'' are in the Lenox Library in Xew York.

GEORGE Morton's arrival at Plymouth.

George Morton came to Plymouth in the ship '"Anne"' during the lat- ter part of July, in the year 1623. Of the arrival of Mr. Morton, Nathaniel ^Morton, his eldest sou, says in "Xew England's Memorial'"*: "About fourteen days after (the fast held about the middle of July) came in the ship, called the Ann, whereof itr. William Pierce was master. Two of the principal passengers that came in this ship were Mr. Timothy Hatiierly and Mr. George Morton. ■' * * The latter of the two fore- named, viz., ^Ir. George ]\Iorton, was a pious, gracious servant of God, and very faithful in whatsoever publick employment he was betrusted withal, and an unfeigned well-wilier, and according to his sphere and con- dition a suitable promoter or the common good and growth of the planta- tion of Xew Plimouth ; labouring to still the discontents that sometimes would arise amongst some spirits, by occasion of the difficulties of these new beginnings ; but it pleased God to put a period to his days soon after his arrival in Xew-England, not survi\-ing a full year after his coming ashore. With much comfort and peace he fell asleep in the Lord, in the month of June, Anno. 1624.''

Thomas Morton, of Plymouth, }ilas?., Avriting ilarch 9, 1807, "partly from the record and partly from tradition,'' says (in a manuscript owned by Marcus [Morton, Esq., of Boston, [Mass.) : "Mr. George Morton at- tempted to come over before, and after having obtained near half the passage the ship proved leaky and returned to England again.'' If this be a fact George [Morton wa> one of the '"part of the company" which wa3 returned to London on the "Speedwell." after putting in at Plymouth. (See "Xew England's Memorial," Xathaniel [Morton, Edition of 1826, p. 32.)


Concerning the death of George Morton, Felt has this to say in hia "Ecclesiastical History of Xew England" : "In June the colonists met with a great loss in the death of Geo. Morton, an exemplary Christian and a pillar of church and society. * * * Tiiough his tarry here is short his memorial on high is everlasting."

In the division of land amon2" those who came in the "Ann" it is recorded that George [Morton and Experience Mitchell (names bracketed

•Boston: 1826. Fifth e


together) received eight acres abutting '-'against the Swampe and Reed Ponde."' In the same location Thomas Morton, Jr.. was allotted one acre. After Mr. ilorton's death his widow married Manasseh Kempton. She died February 19-29, 1665-6. aged 81, and is mentioned in the Plymouth town records as a faithful servant of God. Mr, Kempton died ^ January 14, 1662-3.


In this record of the descendants of George ^lorton I have given the first four generations as completely as it has been possible to glean the information. Beginning with the fifth generation the descendants of but one line are now published, except that copious footnotes include the de- scent of certain prominent lines.

2. Hon. Nathaniel Morton- (George^). This illustrious man was the eldest son of George Morton, and was born the latter part of 1613, in Levden, Holland. He came to New England with his father in 1623 on the "Ann;" upon the death of his father in June, 1624, he was adopted by Governor William Bradford, whose second wife, Mrs. Alice (Carpen- ter) Southworth, was Mrs. George !Morton's sister; that benevolent man gave his nephew the care which by the early death of his father he was denied, and he received an education which fitted him for the great work he afterwards accomplished for the colony; he was made a freeman in 1635, and in that same vear married Lvdia Cooper; she d. Sept. 23-Oct. 4, 1673; he m. (2) April 29, 1674, Ann, dau. of Eichard Pritchard (who removed from Yarmouth to Charleston), and widow of Eichard Tem- plar, of Charlestown; she d. Dec. 26-Jan. o, 1690-1. In 1645 Nathaniel Morton was elected clerk, or secretary, of the Colony court, and remained in office until his death, June 29, 16S5, and to his scrupulous, faithful, painstaking labors we are indebted for the good preservation of the ar- chives of the Pl\Tnouth Colony. Mr. ^lorton wrote the "First Beginnings and After Progress of the Church of Christ at Plymouth, in New Eng- land," which lias preserved the early historv of the first church established in New England ; he also wTote many verses upon occasions of public in- terest, amoDg which may be mentioned those on the death of his aunt, Mrs. Alice Bradford, which are publir^lied in the Massachusetts Historical Collection, Vol. III., 4th series ; p. 460 ; but his greatest work, upon which his fame securely rests, is "New England's Memorial/' originally pub-

lished at Cambridge in 1669, and frequently referred to as "the corner etone" of Xew England history ; its accurate and full account of the trans- actions of the colony from 16'-?0 to 1668 fully justify its claim to that title ; it is a time-honored book, and has long been accounted an impartial history of the Pilgrim fathers; seven editions of the work have been pub- lished. Much of its value depended, no doubt, upon the authors access to the papers of Governor Bradford, as well as to the archives of the colony, but his educatiou, manner of life, and intimate connection with the leading men in the arduous task recorded in his history, qualified him particularly for the work.

In Leach's "Morton Memoranda" is a picture of the residence of John Morton in ^Middleboro.

He was warm and genial in his impul?es, but had no ambition for literary distinction. Soon after his graduation he traveled abroad, and upon returning home began the study of law with Sidney Bartlett, Esq., continuing his study at Hopkin- ton, N. H., and began practice at Amherst. N. H. In 1840 he removed to Quincy, Mass., where he resided until his death. He performed the duties of a magistrate, a commissioner in insolvency, and a trial justice; he was connected with many business enterprises; he was a member of the constitutional convention in 1853, and served several terms as Quincy 's representative to the Massachusetts general court; he was much interested in education, and served as a member of school com- mittees and as a trustee of Milton Academy. Of a decided literary taste, he pas- Bionately loved poetry, and became personally acquainted with many poets of his day, and wrote many verses liimself. He was m.

His public education was had in Harvard College, graduating with the class of 1771, when 20 years and 8 months of age. Ho studied law; but the war of the Revolution prevented hia engaging in the practice when he completed his studies. The subject of the contest with England absorbed all other concerns. Mr. [Morton was an ardent patriot, and when quite young took a decided part with the friends of civil liberty. In 1775 he was one of the Committee of Safety for Boston, and in 1776 was appointed Deputy Secretary; Samuel Adams, then the Secretary, being also a member of the Conti- nental Congress, which met at Philadelphia. After a few years he opened an ofEce as attorney at law in State street in Boston, and was in extensive practice for a

The report quoted above states that he had sixteen children and outlived all but Josiah and Elizabeth, I am unable to find their names.

long period. As an eloquent writer and speaker, very few in this country have surpassed Mr. Morton. He always used good language and spoke with propriety and effect. He often had a seat in the General Court, and was Speaker of the Massa- chusetts House of Representatives. In 1808 he was appointed Attorney General of Massachusetts, and continued in that important office until the year 1833, when he resigned on account of his advanced age and the infirm state of his health. He m. Feb. 24, 1871, Sarah Wentworth Apthorp, b. Aug. 29, 1759, d. Quincy, Mass., May 14, 1846; she wrote for the Massachusetts Magazine under the pen name of "Philena"; her "Power of Sympathy," published in 1789, was the first American novel; she also wrote " Ouabi, or the Virtues of Nature," "Beacon Hill," an epic poem, and "My Mind and its thoughts of Nature." An article concerning her literary work is published in Am. Hist. Reg., Vol. I., p, 447. In 17S9 Mr. and Mrs. Morton were living in a house in Boston on the lower corner of State and Exchange Sts., the former site of the Boston Custom House. The deed by which this "brick mansion house," as it is therein called, with land and outhouses thereto belonging, was conveyed to Mr. Morton (Suff. D. Lib. 148, fol. 189) bears the date of 1784. The grantor was Thomas Apthorp, of London, late of Boston, who for "£150 lawful money of New England, conveys the property which his late father, Charles W. Apthorp, who was a loyalist, held."

In April, 1776, ten months after the battle of Bunker Hill, the body of Gen. Joseph "Warren was found and identified. The Masonic fraternity, of which he was a conspicuous member, at once made arrangements for the funeral ceremonies, which took place at King's Chapel, April 8th. Perez Morton, then a promising young lawyer and a Mason, was selected to deliver the address. From that time he took rank with the leading spirits of the revolution.

There is no record that Perez Morton had any children, but I am inclined to believe he had a son :

My Body I commit to the earth to be decently interred at the discretion of my Executrix herein after named without doubting but at the general Kesurrection I shall receive the same again by the mighty Power of God. And for such "Worldly Estate as it hath pleased the Lord to bless me with I will and order that the same be employed and bestowed in the following manner. That is to say —

Iviprimis I will and order that all my just debts and funeral expenses be well and truly paid by my Executrix with all convenient speed after my decease. Item I give to my son Edmund and to my son Ebenezer the sum of one shilling Lawful Money each in full of their share in my estate. Item I give to my daughter Eliza- beth twenty shillings Lawful Money. To my son Zacheus, twenty shillings Lawful Money.

Family tradition states that he -^vas a member of the Boston tea party, and was an ensign in a Boston company at the battle of Bunker Hill, June 17, 1775. He enlisted as a private in the revolutionary army April 5, 1776, apparently (according to the records of the United States war department) in Captain Samuel Bradford's company, 23d regiment. Continental troops, raised in Massachusetts. "His name appears on an undated pay roll of the company, which shows that he received pay for September, October, No- vember and December, 1776. but affords no further particulars relative to his service." (Letter from the chief of the Record and Pension Office, War Department, Washington, D. C, June 2, 1903.) The records of the family also show that he served as an ensign and as a captain. \\Tiile there is some danger of confusion in accepting the individual records of Eevolutionary service because of there sometimes having been more than one soldier of a given name, when the state and national records of service agree with fam- ily records and traditions, there need be no fear of such confusion. The chief of the Record and Pension Otiice of the War Department also states, under date of June 3, 1903 : "The records also show that one Isaac Mor- ton served as an ensign and as a lieittenant in the Tenth Massachusetts Regiment, commanded by Colonel Thomas Marshall, Revolutionary war. He was commissioned ensign November 6, 1776, promoted to be lieutenant November 1, 1777, and discharged December 4, 1777." From the records of Revolutionary war service in the office of the secretary of the Common- wealth of Massachusetts, certified as correct by Wm. M. Olin, secretary, July 2, 1903, it is learned that "Isaac Morton appears with rank of captain on muster and pay roll of Col. Thomas Poor^s regiment. Engaged July 8, 1778; discharged October 12, 1778; time of service, 3 months 17 days, including 12 days (240 miles) travel home. Company commanded by

Said ^Morton and others reported as having been discharged by Colonel Poor from any further service in his regiment, agreeable to Gen- eral Washington's orders. Eank, captain." Vol. 174, 541.

The records of the family state that Captain Morton served throughout the war, eight years in all, in the army and navy. In a letter dated June 15, 1903, Wm.'^M. Olin, secretary' of the Commonwealth of :Massachusetts, writes :

"I beg to state that an examination of the record index to the revolu- tionary rolls collection failed to reveal any reference whatever to an Isaac Morton as having served continuously throughout the war.

"Eeferences were found to an Isaac Morton, no place of residence given, as having been commissioned captain in July, 1778, of one of the regiments raised to serve for 8 months at Peekskill, X.' Y. Other references show him to have served from July 14, 1778, to October 24, 1778, and that he was discharged, presumably on the latter date. (See certified statements given previously.)

"Eeferences were also found to an Isaac Morton as having served as a second lieutenant in Captain Champner s company, Col. Xathaniel Heath's detachment of guards, m and about Boston, in 1780. Captain Champney's company was made up of men detached from the Boston regiment of militia, but inasmuch as the original pay rolls do not supply any facts concerning the individuals borne upon them, it is impossible for us here to determine whether or not the Lieut. Isaac :\Iorton of Captain Champney's company is the man %vho had previously served with the rank of captain."

Albert Morton of Longwood, Fla., also stated that Capt. Isaac Morton served "when the western Indians were subdued."

Family records state that he drew a pension of $20 a month.

At the close of the Revolutionarv war Capt. Isaac Morton moved from Boston, Mass., to Portsmouth, X. H^, engaging in the bread and sea biscuit baking business. In 1798 yellow fever appearing in Portsmouth, he re- moved to Exeter, X. H., continuing the baking business, his son William, then about twelve vears old, delivered the bread to his customers. Isaac, like his father, died suddenly at an advanced age. Mrs. Helen Greenwood,

• Pe«kskill was one of the points at which valuable stores of war munitions were kept.

daughter of Albert Morton, granddaughter of William Morton, great-grand- daughter of Capt. Isaac Morton, T\Tites : "My grandfather told me at one time that his father (Isaac) was sitting in a chair down by the old Pis- cataqua bridge telling his Eevolutionary yarns, and fell backward dead.'' As the graves of Capt. Isaac Morton and his wife are in Portsmouth, it is presumed they returned there from Exeter after the yellow fever epidemic had passed. He and his wife Anna are buried in the Proprietors' Cemetery in the south part of the city of Portsmouth, X. H. The following inscrip- tions are upon the gravestone :

    Could you share your State of Salvation that we may better serve our readers?

    At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour!

    I do believe Jesus is the Saviour and I know I have eternal Life!

    I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life.

    A Christian Family in Every House, in YOUR Community, in YOUR Lifetime!

    Worth Giving For? Worth Living For? Worth Working For?

    Please name "" aloud in Prayer Daily? PLEASE?

    DOCTRINAL DISCLAIMER: is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Conservative Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS. As such, we provides web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA, ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, TALK-RADIO-REPUBLICANS, ETC., – seeking to be an outlet for many CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE VOICES who love the LORD JESUS CHRIST ABOVE ALL!

    Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.

    We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.

    In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:

    Be Blessed!
