    [No. 515.] — THOMAS OR RICHARD MORT, OF PEEL, ESQ.
    (See Note No.  499)

              I can now send a partial answer to my query. Through the kindness of Mr. J. Owen, I have been able to search the Registers of the Collegiate Church, Manchester. Therein I find the following entry among the burials: —           "1734-5, Jan. 16, Catherine wife of ye late Richard Mort of Peel, Esq."           I have not been able to find any records of the marriage either in Bolton or Manchester, and think it may have taken place in the neighbourhood of Peel. I shall be pleased if any of your readers can help rm.           In my query, I state on the authority of the "Mosely Family Memoirs: (p. 40) that Catherine, daughter of Nicholas Mosely, married Thomas Mort, of Peel, Esq.   From the register extract quoted above, it would appear that she married Richard Mort. Which is correct?           Manchester                                         — Joseph Leigh.

    Hello,
              I was very impressed by your website on the Mort Family.           Although I did not find any connection with my Mort family, I felt I would like to send you my line.           I am descended from Elizabeth Mort b. 13 Jun 1818 in Horwick, Lancashire, Eng., married 4 Sep 1848 in Bury, Lancashire, England to William Ainsworth, died 9 Sep 1877 in Salt Lake City, UT. Md. #2 William Clayton.           Her parents are George Mort b. abt 1773 of Bolton, Lancashire, England, married 4 Sep 1804 to Elizabeth Plumb b. 28 Mar 1777 Eccleston, Lancashire, England.           I am very interested in contacting anyone doing research on this line.           I would appreciate hearing from you.

    New York Daily Times. New York, N.Y.: Jun 27, 1857. pg. 1



    The article in the NEW-YORK DAILY TIMES, headed "A new Era in shipping, " has created universal attention, and our shipping merchants throughout the Atlantic States must open their eyes to its truths. Mr. T. S. MORT, a wealthy and influential merchant of Sidney, New South Wales, in a late speech said, in speaking of the present and future progress of ocean steam communications, "that the time had arrived for commencing operations for the opening of the Panama route."


    SOLDIER IN PARADISE: By John Mort. Southern Methodist University, $19.95.
    Review by DAVID L. ULIN. New York Times: Oct 24, 1999. pg. BR37.

    For the reader of John Mort's new Vietnam War novel, "Soldier in Paradise," a sense of deja vu kicks in; although the writing is strong and many of the scenes affecting, you can't escape the feeling that you've been here before. Mort's novel introduces us to Irish Donnelly, a former infantry sergeant, and the book moves back and forth from past to present as Irish uses his memories of the war to try to redeem his amorphous middle-aged existence. Mort does a good job of recreating the soldier's experience, particularly the conflict's odd, meandering, formlessness, the way days of boredom suddenly yield to the intensity of a firefight, yet "Soldier in Paradise" never fully engages us. Part of the problem is that Mort's contemporary chapters are too abbreviated to function as much besides connective tissue between Irish's war memories. Some readers may wonder whether there is much left to be written about Vietnam. To his credit Mort addresses this issue. "As for Vietnam.: his narrator says, "I'd given up on finding anything to say that hadn't already been said, and with more eloquence than I could muster." That's a gutsy move, but in the end it's not enough to give "Soldier in Paradise" an identity. substantially different from that of many other novels about the war. — DAVID L. ULIN.

    ico several months ago to rescue two
    of their comrades whom they believed
    to be in the hands of bandits.
      The prosecution charged that Mort ex-
    ceeded his authority in ordering his

    DR P. R. Mort is HONORED
     
    Rutgers  Confers  Honorary
      Degree on Columbia Educator
    
         Special to THE NEW YORK TIMES
      NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., June
    1—The honorary degree of Doctor
    of Letters was conferred today
    upon Dr. Paul R. Mort, director of
    the Advanced School of Education,
    Teachers College, Columbia Uni-
    versity, at the commencement exer
    cises of the Rutgers University
    School of Education in the Gym-
    nasium.
      In making the award Dr. Robert
    C. Clothier, president of Rutgers,
    praised Dr. Mort for his contribu-
    tion to study of the school fi-
    nancing problem.  Degrees were
    awarded to 225 person by Dr.
    Clothier.
      Development of a community
    understanding of the Problems
    of education is more important than
    the level of teacher training, wealth
    of the community or the expen-
    diture level in maintaining school
    liveliness, Dr. Mort declared in his
    commencement address.
    

    New York Times, May 13, 1962;
    
    PAUL R. MORT, 68,
    EDUCATOR, IS DEAD
    
    Professor at Columbia Led
       Government-Aid Studies
    
      Dr. Paul R. Mort, Emeritus
    Professor of Education at 
    Teachers College, Columbia
    University, died of a massive
    Coronary Yesterday in his home
    at 4662 Iselin Avenue, River-
    dale, the Bronx.  He was 68
    years old.
      Dr. Mort was at Teachers
    College from 1924 until his re-
    tirement in 1959.  At that time
    he also retired as executive of-
    ficer of the college's Institute
    of Administrative Research but
    continued to act as a consult-
    ant.
      Professor Mort Advocated
    more extensive education for
    the nation's children, and he
    served many committees and
    government commissions to ad-
    vie on education programs.
      He called for increased fi-
    nancial support from the state
    and Federal Government for
    education but warned at the
    same time against the govern-
    ment usurpation of power from
    local school boards
      "People must look to the
    schools as the only thing they
    can give their children," Pro-
    fessor Mort once said.
      Last year he directed staff
    studies for the state Educa-
    tional Conference Board, which 
    represents New York's major
    organizations concerned with 
    educational policy.  He directed
    the preparation of a forty-three-
    page report entitled "A new
    Approach to School Finance:
    1961 Review of Fiscal Policy
    for Public Education in New
    York State."
      The report called for almost
    $100,000,000 more in state aid
    to education for New York City.
         Guide for the 1980's
      Earlier he had been among
    sixty educators who drafted a
    guide to help communities meet
    the educational needs projected
    for the Nineteen Eighties.  The
    plan is expected to be finished 
    in 1965.  It was Professor Mort
    who first advised such planning.
      Professor Mort saw educa-
    tional needs as an ever-changing
    pattern.  His work took him into 
    other states and onto many
    lecture platforms.  He wrote a 
    dozen books on the subject and
    many papers and newspaper
    articles.
      In 1937 Professor Mort headed
    the National survey of School
    Finance, a two-year study under
    the auspices of the Federal Gov-
    ornment.   The report said that 
    more than one-third of the na-
    tion's school children were not
    receiving essential instruction.
    It called for educational fi-
    nancing by the state as a whole
    rather than by the local com-
    munities.
      In World War II, the profes-
    sor served on the advisory com-
    mittee to the Civil Aeronautics
    Board and as a director of the 
    Board's Air Training Cadets of
    American, an organization to
    give pre-flight training to
    youths 16 to 18 years old.
      Dr. Mort originated the 
    equalization formula for state
    aid adopted by the Friedsam
    committee in New York State
    in 1922.   The formulas has since
    been adopted by three-quarters
    of all the state.
      He recently originated a re-
    vised plan, which has already
    been adopted by Rhode Island
    and is being considered by Del-
    aware and Maryland.  It was
    the basis of the Diefendorf
    Commission report to the New
    York State Legislature this
    year.
         Founded Study Council
      In 1942 Dr. Mort founded the 
    Metropolitan School Study
    Council, a group of seventy-two
    school systems in the New York 
    area.  Its purpose is to improve
    education through cooperative
    research.
      He founded the Associated
    Public School Systems, com-
    prising 230 systems throughout
    the nation and developed a plan
    for cooperative research with
    the New York State School
    Boards Association, known as
    the Central School Study, which
    comprises more than 400 school 
    systems.
      The Metropolitan School
    Study Council was the fore-
    runner of thirty-five other
    councils in the United States.
    Dr. Mort was to be a lead-
    ing speaker at the Council's
    annual superintendents' confer-
    ence, which will open today at 
    Arden House.
      A native of Elsie Mich., Dr.
    Mort received his Bachelor of
    Arts degree at Indiana Univer-
    sity in 1916.  From then to
    1922, he was a teacher and ad-
    ministrator in Indiana and Ari-
    zona.  He came to Columbia in 
    1922 to study for his master's
    degree, and remained to join
    the faculty at Teachers College.
      Surviving are his widow, the
    former Miss Mildred Willey of
    Indianapolis, and tow sons, Paul
    R., Jr., of Briarcliff Manor,
    N.Y., and David Mort of Ches-
    wick, Pa.

    U.S. PENSION OFFICE MAR 17, 1883 I G.F. Hoop late surgeon of the 84th Reg. Pa. Vols. Do hereby certify that I first became acquainted with Adam Mort Private of Co. C 84th Reg. Pa. Vols. At Camp Crossman in Huntingdon Co. Pa. About the 10th of October 1861. He was at that time to all appearances a sound and healthy man. But some two or three weeks after that he took cold from the causes incident to camp life and had an attack of pleurisy for which I treated him and he recovered and assumed his duties as a soldier in camp but additionally had an attack of asthma which (lengthened his stay) from duty. He (spent) Christmas with the Regiment and marched with (them) in the later part of December 1861 to Virginia via Hagerstown Md, Cumberland Md., Martinsburg Va. to Winchester Va. And he took part in the battle of the later named place about the 23rd day of March 1862 and from there he marched with the command until the Regiment camped near Warrington Va. About the middle of May 1862 at which place he again became so much afflicted with asthma that he was unable longer to discharge the duties of a soldier in camp or field and I sent him with a (group) of other debilitated soldiers to a convalescent camp near Alexandria Va. After which time my business of him ceased. It now appears from official papers in his pension that he remained there until February 1863 and was then discharged on Surgeon's Certificate of Disability. I further certify that I have no interest direct nor indirect in the prosecution of this claim and that these facts are ??? from a medical examiner's report, of camp and field notes, and from personal recollection of the man and his treatment.

    They said Adam did not actually fight at G'Burg, but assisted in the troops' resupplying. That was all they had for me. Here's the poem Adam's wife wrote in the Girardville paper, enjoy: THE MINERS AND LABORERS ----------------------------- It was on a Monday morning, All in the month of May; The birds were sweetly singing, Sending forth their joyous lay. Yes, it was on that beauteous morning The second day of May; In Eighteen Hundred and Seventy, That our Miners had their day. They were all attired so decently, Quite neat from top to toe; They wore white gloves upon their hands, As white as driven snow. They gathered in great numbers, >From district and from branch; And like noble hearted heroes, To the Depots did advance. There were iron steeds in waiting, Deck'd with colors bright and true, It was our Nation's colors, Yes, it was Red, White, and Blue. Those iron steeds did snort and prance, The fires did briskly burn, And to the borough of St. Clair, The wheels did swiftly turn. Thanks be unto those gentlemen, Who so faithfully did repair, To address those hardy sons of toil, >From district far and near. Through Port Carbon and through Pottsville Did march this gallant band, And so well did they conduct themselves, As though princes of the land. Their behavior was becoming, As thus they marched along; Which made, full many a one to cheer, Our noble Miner's throng. They wore the star upon their breast, And colors of the Nation; As a mark of faithful friendship, And of their Association. Their handsome banners waving, High in the balmy breeze; The music sweetly sounding, Through Valleys, brush and trees. All hail the Miners' banner, All hail them ever true, All hail the star upon their breast, All hail Red, White and Blue. God speed their Picks and Shovels, Although they've long laid still; The Needles and the Scrapers, Likewise the Sledge and Drill. Success to the toiling Miners, To the Laborers their mates; Success to all dear little boys, Who work at picking out slate. Long life to all Miners and Laborers, And God guide them in wisdom way, Be they ever one in friendship, Success to the W.B.A. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- HARRIET MORT: GIRARDVILLE, MAY, 1870 We thank Mrs. Mort for her noble poem; it gladdens our heart, the smiles of the ladies are encouraging, and old pugnacity of Pottsville set it down, that the Miners are not only united and in favor of the W.B.A., but the Miners Wives' too, God bless them.

My brother John Mort, when I met him first about one week after he arrived in Alexandria, was in the hospital at Alexandria. He was in very bad health at the time, and suffering from chronic diarrhea. He was so weak that he could not stand alone when I saw him. I received my discharge at Alexandria and left there for Washington to receive my pay, and left my brother John in the hospital at Alexandria. When I received my pay I started home to Ashland Schuylkill County, Pa. My brother John returned home some weeks after that. He come home much reduced, weak, and sick.

He never worked after he returned. His physician’s name was Doctor John H. Yocum. He attended to him in his last days of illness. I don’t know where Doctor Yocum lives now. I have not seen him for 10 years. I was at the funeral of my brother John Mort when he was buried with the Honors of War. I know Mrs. Mary Ann Mort, his widow.

    Active woman
    forced to take
    time out to battle
    breast cancer

    By ROBIN R. PLASTERER
    Staff Writer

              She's a busy lady and didn't want to take time off from her job as a guidance counselor at Whitko High School. But in the end breast cancer kept her from her work for 60 days.
              That part of life is over for Karen Imhoff and she's living day by day with the fact that she has dealt with a disease that affects a lot of women.
              It all began in October 2002 when she noticed a lump in her breast.
              "I watched it for a couple of weeks. It happened to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I was more aware of the disease than I would have normally been and the lump was getting bigger," said Imhoff.
              In November she went to see her gynecologist and he immediately ordered a mammogram.
              On the same day the doctor performed a needle biopsy.
              "I was resigned to the fact that cancer was a possibility. But I knew this mass was growing fast and I assumed the worst but hoped for the best. Because of the growth I instinctively knew something was wrong," she said.
              The doctor confirmed her suspicion later that week and surgery was scheduled.
              At this time only a few people in the school knew what Imhoff was facing. She kept it quiet.
              "I e-mailed the staff at Whitko to tell them I was going to have surgery and wouldn't be back until Christmas," she said.
              Doctors performed a radical mastectomy and removed the entire breast.
              "That was my choice," she said.
              Imhoff's surgery went well and she returned to Whitko the day before Christmas break to wish everyone holiday greetings and to thank the students and staff for their thoughtfulness.
              After the break she worked until the second week of January when a port was put in for the chemotherapy she was about to face.
              "I was the first person at Kosciusko County Hospital to have dose intensive chemotherapy, which enabled me to have chemo every two weeks instead of every three," she said.
              This enabled her to have eight treatments by April 25.
              She worked as much as she could. The treatments took three hours and she was done by mid-afternoon.
              "The chemo didn't make me physically ill. I was just fatigued. From Sunday to Tuesday I simply slept. By Wednesday I'd feel better," she said.
              Anyone who knows Imhoff knows she is an extremely active woman. She was so weak she couldn't even milk her goats, something she loves.
              "It was extremely frustrating. I was so physically unable to do the things I have done for years. I couldn't shop but I became quite a good QVC shopper," she said.
              Prior to the chemo Imhoff had long sandy blond hair and she hadn't been to a beautician since high school. She lost her hair with the second treatment.
              "The only time I wore a wig was at my daughter's wedding. Other than that I wore hats and scarves," she said.
              She came back to work full-time the first week of May.
              "I had too much work to do. That's a busy time for a guidance department," she said.
              "I made it for commencement. I wore a scarf under my graduation cap but I was determined I was going to be there," she said.
              Today Imhoff continues her protocol visits and her blood tests are in the normal range. Her hair is no longer blond it's salt and pepper color. Life is good and she's living day-by-day.
              Breast cancer changed her life but she's first to admit she has never assumed she has tomorrow.
              "I always go back to my favorite Bible verse. All things work together for good to those who love the Lord. Each day of life brings new challenges and this was an opportunity for me to understand other's feelings because I've had the experience," she said.
              "There are several women here at Whitko who are undergoing therapy and have had cancer. It's been wonderful to have them as a sort of support team," she said.
              "This was a big thing. I had to sit on the sidelines for a while instead of being in charge. My life verse says whatever you to do, do all for the glory of God.
    Her family reacts
              Imhoff's family had very different reactions to the cancer. Her daughter, Heather, was able to move back in with them and help take care of her.
              "Heather is an athletic trainer and is very clinical. She was a great support for me and helped with the language. She had just began studying medical transcriptions and that helped," she said.
              "Gretchen was still in college and busy with cheerleading. She helped as much as she could," she said.
              Her mother, Alice Mort, became the comforter making food and calling on the phone or in person.
              Her sister, Twyla Chalk, of Mansfield, Ohio, has always taken good care of herself and has been checked.
              Her husband, Cal, and son Nate, gravitated toward each other more.
              "They chose to say nothing rather than saying the wrong thing. Nate commented once how he appreciated peer support. That broke the code of silence," she said.
    Her advice
              Imhoff can't stress enough to other women to ask questions.
              "You need to be tolerant to the changes that occur normally when you mature but be aware of signs of abnormality. Find a doctor who you can trust and ask questions," she concluded.
