John Mitchell1

M, b. 1710, d. 1772
     John Mitchell was born in 1710 at Ireland.2,3 He married Jane Ross at Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, circa 1735.2 John Mitchell lived at Carlyle County, Pennsylvania; Early Settler.1 He died in 1772 at Lewistown, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania; Gribbel & Elkins Families Has John Died 1772; Carlyle County To Dry (or Grass) Valley PA In Early 1800's - Anita McCreery.2,3 He Sources DAR Lineage Bk Vl. 102, #101520, p. 156 (John & William) served as private in Cumberland County PA Militia. Born 1732 in Ireland. Died Philadelphia A 'John Mitchell' in 12 PA Regiment commanded by Col. William Cook, served 21 days then deserted. Also an undated list from Thomas Little, proving his claim in Col Mayhew Ryan's Cavalry enlisted for the war -- James [?] before John Mitchell 20 Jan 1813.1 He was mentioned deceased This account was found in the Mifflin county Historical Society.
It was written shortly before William's death in 1875 and published in the Lewistown Gazette. It is rambling and sometimes hard to follow but I thought you might find it interesting. I have copied it exactly as I found it; however I have numbered the children to make it easier to follow.
" My grandfather, John Mitchell , came to Philadelphia long before the Revolutionary War. He married a lady named Jane Ross, the only daughter of Lord John Ross who was very wealthy. Her father was bitterly opposed to the marriage and they had to flee the country. (Ireland) The father then offered one hundred pounds, under the Old English law for his head, dead or alive. In the course of time the father became reconciled to the marriage and went up from Philadelphia to Carlisle and owned them as his children. John Ross died in Philadelphia, date unknown to us.
John Mitchell had eight children, three boys and five girls.
(1) James, the eldest , married Mary Steel; they had two daughters and one son. They lived in Greencastle, Pa, where James died August 8, 1870.
(2) Elizabeth married Thomas Holt.
(3)Eleanor married Henry Cunningham.
(4) John Ross married Mary West. They had one daughter, Mary. John Ross then married Isabella Blair, daughter of a preacher. Their two sons, James and William moved to Brownsville; a daughter Eleanor, born January 26, 1781 married Robert Irvin, December 19, 1811; Eleanor died August 29, 1854.

Ross, James and William, sons of whom we know nothing.
Isabella died November 15 , 1811 and John Ross died in 1802, at the same place where his father died, one mile north of Carlisle at the Big Limestone Spring. Another daughter is said to have married a man named Miller. This might have been the daughter of the first marriage to Mary West.
(5) Ann Agnes married Thomas Alexander.
(6) William 1756-1822, married Elizabeth Hamilton on March 23 1780; He died March 8, 1822; She died April 9, 1827, in Clarion county. In 1777 he went down to Brandywine to haul the baggage wagons and was in that battle, serving under Capt. Walter Stewart, 2nd Pa. Regiment, and in 1778 was transferred to Capt. Jacob Ashmead's Co., same Regiment, as drummer. He served 2 years; was paid off in Continental money, fetched it home and bought a farm near Lancaster or New Lancaster . He married near Red Rock Church in Sherman's Valley. In 1766 his father John traded the horses he rode over the mountain into Dry valley, looking for land, to a man named Baird for his claim to several hundred acres of land.
In 1781 William sold his farm he bought with his war pay to a man named Davis, and in 1784 he, his wife, and two children, on horseback came over the mountain to settle upon the farm his father had traded his horses for. William Mitchell's body was buried in the Methodist Church yard at Kelly and on the headstone: " A Soldier of the Revolution."

James Morgan Sr1

M, b. 1719, d. 1791
     James Morgan Sr Nothing clearly points to the father and mother of James Morgan Sr. All we know of James Morgan Sr is from the Biographical Record of Bartholomew and Jackson Counties, In pub 1904, p. 745, says Martha Morgan (wife of William Wrght) was the dau of James and Mary Morgan. Levi Woodrum, descendant of Richard Wright Jr said that three Morgan girls married three Wright brothers.2,3 James Morgan Sr was also known as Janus Morgan.4 He was born in 1719 at Baltimore County, Maryland.5 He was born circa 1729 at Baltimore County, Maryland; Reverend James Morgan Jr, James Morgan Sr's son, was born in Baltimore County, Maryland, as he testified in his Revolutionary War pension application (#S7251). This fact leads credence to the notion that the 1754 Baltimore county marriage does, in fact, belong to his parents. The pension records do not offer proof of the Reverend's parentage but the couple is named in gthe memoir of his nephew, Enoch Parr, who states that his maternal grandparents were James Morgan and Molly Davis. Parr further describes entering his uncle James Morgan's school once he turned five years old. The fact is significant in properly identfying the family because James Jr does make reference in his application to his years as a teacher. The Parr manuscript, then,is the glue that binds the Morgan genealogy.6 He was born in 1732 at Rowan County, North Carolina.4 He was born circa 1735 at North Carolina.7 He married Elizabeth Walker say 1737 at Baltimore County, Maryland.8 He witnessed Elizabeth Walker's death at Baltimore County, Maryland, between 1739 and 1753.8 He married Mary Mollie Davis at Sesputia Hundred, St. George's Parish, Baltimore County, Maryland, on 18 July 1754.9 James was listed as the head of a family on the 1790 Census at Rowan County, North Carolina. There are 3 Morgan families in Rowan Countylisted in 1790 census:
James Morgan (p. 172 Image: 0509) 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, 2 females;
James Morgan (p. 177 Image: 0526) 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, 2 females
James Morgan Jr. (p. 177) 1 male over 16, 3 females (the Wright families are on p. 178, so perhaps this James and Jr. are "our' father and son)
There is also Hugh, John, and Nathan Morgan in Rowan County NC

Bowen, p. 745, says Martha Morgan (wife of William Wright) was the dau of James and Mary Morgan.

He was a private in Capt Jonathan Wood's train ban (Upton militia company) Mar 23, 1757, as was James. He served from Apr 2 to Apr 30, 1759, under Capt John Furnass in the second battalion of Col Ruggles regiment. His residence was given as Mendon in a muster roll of Capt John Furnass' company, dated at Boston Mar 6, 1760, at whic time Stewarrd was a corporal, on the second expedition against Crown Point. His wife Deborah died 9 Jan 1766, in Holliston. He was made administrator Aug 26, 1772, of the estate of his father, late of New Braintree (Worcester county probate docate 56060). At this time he was called 'Benjamin Steward of Boston.' At the outbreak of the Revolution he seems to have had a commission as captain, but his death early in the conflict prevented the fruition of his military career. He was taken ill of smallpox and died in Harvard on Jun 6, 1775, aged 45 - a solitary stone in a roadside pasture marks the spot where 'Capt Benjamin Stewart of Boston' lies buried. He had at least two children, recorded in Holliston.2 He died on 16 June 1775 at Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts; "Stewart, Benjamin, Capt, of Boston, MA, 16 Jun 1775, his 45th year, small pox G.R. 4 Death Harvard MA

Mr. Rolph,

Thank you for your recent email partially shown above. A search was
made of the Stark County Death Records 1867-1908 for Robert PAGE, but no listing was found. I also checked the pre-1900 cemetery records and the index to probates from 1809-1890. Again, no listing for Robert PAGE was found.

If you can determine that your Rev. Robert PAGE lived in Stark County,
we would be very interested in information about him. However, due to space limitations, we won't be able to accept info. on him if he never
lived in our county. I hope you understand.

I am sorry we couldn't be of more help this time. If we can be of any
future assistance, please let us know.


Sincerely,
Miss Lauren K. Landis, Genealogy Divison Mgr.
