The Mort sisters, Marion and Edith

Marion and Edith’s mother, Louisa Barge was born on Bonfire Night, November 5 th 1814. She was the youngest of the nine children born to Ann nee Grimes and Thomas Barge. Louisa was christened at Canon St Independema, Manchester on September 10th 1815.

Louisa’s father Thomapicture of print workss was a calico printer, he worked in the family firm of Messrs John Barge and Co in Salford, Manchester that was started by his father. The firm was known as Barges of the Adelpi and specialised in dying cloth.

In 1825 when Louisa was eleven years old her father died. By 1841, the census reveals that Louisa was living with her mother Ann and elder brother Robert at 8, Crescent, Salford, Manchester. This was a prestigious area opposite Peel Park. The family employed four servants to care for their needs.

On March 13th 1844 in Louisa’s thirtieth year she married William Mort in the Cathedral, ManchWilliam Mort jpeg imageester. He was a manufacturer in the cotton trade and resided at Green Hey’s, the family home in Manchester. William’s brother was Thomas Sutcliffe Mort see Australia’s Captain of Commerce.

There were obviously strong family connections, between the Mort and Barge families for Louisa’s brother Robert Barge was married William’s sister Catherine Tongue Mort.

William and Louisa were to have two children, Edith born 1846 and Marion. (My great grandmother) born in 1848.

At some point the family moved to London where William was employed as a banker. Their address in the 1881 Census is shown as 1,Stanley Crescent, Kensington.

Both Edith and Marion showed artistic flair. Her descendants have preserved many of Marion’s watercolours and also leather bound album, which was given to Louisa by her fiancé William, about 1840. In it there are three poems written by her sister Edith. The first two are following the death of their mother.

Registrants Will Receive No Official Word of Liability Until the Local Boards Summon Them for Examination - Cameramen Take Motion Pictures of Whole Scene. Washington, July 20. - Selective conscription was put into effect today, when a national lottery fixed the order of military liability for the 10,000,000 young Americans registered for service. To accomplish the result, 10,500 numbers had to be drawn at one time, a task which began in the morning and lasted far into the night. The lottery was held in the public hearing room of the senate office building with war department officials in charge of the actual drawing, and with members of the senate and house military committees as witnesses... ALTOONA PEOPLE EXHIBIT MARKED INTEREST IN BIG HUMAN LOTTERY OF MEN Total of 10, 242 Young Men of City and the County Eagerly Awaited Flashing of Numbers from Washington Names of First Two Hundred and Fifty Registrants in the Two Districts of Altoona and the Two of the County Are Given Together With Numbers as Drawn - They Will Be First to Be Summoned by Local Boards for Examination as to Physical Fitness and Exemption Altoona and Blair county yesterday were more vitally interested in the great army lottery staged at Washington than any event local or national, that was numbered among the day’s occurrences. It was of great important than any battle fought on the French front, the progress of the war in Europe and above any peace move that the new German Chancellor Michaelis might have made on behalf of the Kaiser or the German nation. They were thinking of their own fathers and brothers, eligible to be called to make up the new half million man army to enter the world’s war for humanity and democracy. They had but one desire yesterday and that was to learn whether or not their number, that key number by which they are known in the greatest army draft the country has ever known. Altoona is divided into four districts, two for Altoona, Nos. 1 and 2, and two outside the city in Blair county, and known as No. 1 and 2. Enrolled as registrants in the four distracts are 10,242 men divided as follows: Altoona No. 1, 2,440; Altoona No. 2, 2,867, Blair county No. 1, 2002; Blair county No. 2, 2,943. As drawn at Washington they will be called for service. The first several hundred will be the first called to appear before the exemption boards for physical fitness and to file any claim for exemption they may have to file. If the first call of the exemption board fails to meet the quota of their district a sufficient number will be summoned to fill the required number. The Tribune this morning gives the names of the first 250 registrants drawn in each of the four districts of the county. In Altoona the numbers drawn drafted two men and they are given as their numbers were received over the wire. They follow: BLAIR COUNTY SECOND DISTRICT 837 - William H. H. Mort, Altoona.

Personally appeared before me one of the J.O.P.s in and for Schuylkill
County, ADAM MORT, who being duly sworn deposeth as follows. I am a brother
of JOHN MORT, deceased, who was a private in the 96th Regiment Pa. Vols. I
was in the 84th Regiment Pa. Vols. Our Regiment, the 84th, was lying in
Alexandria Virginia when the 96th Regiment under Gen. McLellan returned
from the seven days fight in retreat. 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. The diarrhea stuck to him until he died, about a
month or six weeks after he returned (July 22, 1863 date of death as per
Doctor John H. Yocum, attending physician). 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. I was at the wedding when Mary Ann and my brother John were
married at Tuscarora, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania by Aaron Reber,
J.O.P. His widow, Mrs. Mary Ann Mort is still living and has three children
living, Fanny, George, and John. Fanny Mort was born on the 16th day of May
A.D. 1854. George Mort, the second child, was born April 25th 1856, and
Jno. Mort was born February 21st 1860. In answer, I am in no way interested
in the result of the application of Mrs. Mary Ann Mort in Pension Claim
no.181,225. I expect no benefit from the result in any way.

Personally appeared before me one of the J.O.P.s in and for Schuylkill
County, Mrs. Mary J. Wetzel, wife of Daniel K. Wetzel, who being produced
by the claimant as a witness, and after being duly sworn, deposeth as
follows.

I am 42 years of age and have lived in the Borough of Ashland, Schuylkill
County, Pa. for 27 years. I am aquainted with Mrs. MARY ANN MORT, widow of
JOHN MORT, deceased; now living in the state of Ohio, and have been
aquainted intimately with both Mrs. Mary ann Mort the claimant for pension
in number 181,225 and also her husband, John Mort, now deceased for 27
years and upwards. They having lived the most of that time in the place
Ashland and close neighbors of mine. I knew Mrs. Mort before she was
married to John Mort. I remember well the time that John Mort enlisted in
the military service of the Untied States. It was in the year of 1861. He
appeared to be enjoying good health at the time, and was considered a
healthy man. I can’t tell how long Mort was in the service of the United
States, but he was absent some 18 months before he returned home. When he
returned home, he came home weak and sick with chronic diarrhea. I had
heard repeatedly from his brother GEORGE MORT that John Mort, husband of
the claimant, was sick in the Army and that he was suffering much from the
disease. This I heard from different ones. I can’t tell exactly how long
John Mort lived after his return home, but it was not many months. I would
say only about 4-5 months. He died as I was informed and believe from the
said disease. He was buried in this place. He was buried by the soldiers
with Military Honors. I know that Mary Ann Mort, widow of John Mort is
still a widow and has 3 children living. I have no interest in this case.

Thos. F. ?? Prothonotary P7************ 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.

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.

"WILLIAM HENRY MORT, who is among the prosperous and esteemed citizens of
Woodsboro District, owns 177 acres of fine land, situated five miles north
of the town of Woodsboro.  Here he has resided since a boy of four or five
years.  He was born on the Walter farm in Emmittsburg District, Frederick
County, January 16, 1850.  He is a son of William and Catharine (Oler) Mort.

"George Mort, the grandfather of William H. Mort, was a day laborer.  He was
twice married.  His first wife was a Miss Fox, a sister of Balser Fox, of
the neighborhood of Creagerstown.  After her death, Mr. Mort was married
again.  By the first marriage, he had one child, William, and by the second
he was the father of several children.

"William Mort, son of George Mort, was an infant when his mother died and he
was taken by an aunt.  He lived among strangers until he went to his trade.
He was given a common school education and when about fourteen years old
went to learn the trade of a stone mason.  This occupation he followed for
many years, until he bought a farm, now owned by his son.  Even afterwards
he engaged at his trade occasionally.  When he finished his trade he did not
have money enough to buy tools.  For a time he worked for William Ogle, a
contractor at Union Bridge.  Mr. Mort also did some contracting for himself,
erecting many lime kilns.  After his marriage, he made his home at various
places until 1854, when he purchased the place on which he lived until he
retired to Thurmont.  At that place he died in 1887, and is buried at Rocky
Cemetery.  He used his influence to advance the interests of the Republican
party.  He held membership in the Lutheran Church.  Mr. Mort was married
near Bridgeport, Frederick County, to Catharine Oler, who was born and
raised near that place.  Her parents were Frederick and Peggy (Lynn) Oler.
She died at her sister’s, Mrs. Powell, near Creagerstown, in 1889.  She was
a Lutheran in religion.  By this marriage were born four children; Frances
Anna, the wife of Simon Lohr, of Thurmont; Frederick, who died at Loy’s
Station, Frederick County, married Mary Pusey; William Henry; and George,
died aged two years.

"William Henry Mort, son of William and Catharine (Oler) Mort, received his
education at Grove’s Academy near his home.  At the age of twenty he quit
school.  He worked for his father on the farm until he was thirty-six years
old.  After his marriage in 1886, he worked away from the home farm for
three years.  He then bought the homestead, and here he has since been
engaged in rural pursuits.  His home was built in the early forties by John
Miller.  The barn was put up by his father in 1870.  Mr. Mort is a farmer
who thoroughly understands his vocation and he received large returns from
his labors.  He is highly thought of in the community in which he resides.

"In 1886, Mr. Mort was married to Seraphine Elizabeth Ceas, daughter of
Nathaniel and Rebecca Ann (McKissick) Ceas.  She is a native of Hauver’s
District, Frederick County.  Mr. and Mrs. Mort are affiliated with the Luth-
eran Church at Rocky Ridge, in which he has served in the capacity of a
deacon several times.  They have no issue."

Thomas John Chase Williams, L. R. Titsworth & Co., 1910, pp. 1446-7

CHARLES C. PUTMAN, who is numbered among the enterprising and successful 
young farmers of Creagerstown District, is a native of Lewistown District, 
Frederick County, where he was born October 31, 1881.  He is a son of Green-
berry H. and Ida R. (Joy) Putman.

"John J. Putman, Sr., the great-grandfather of our subject, was among the 
well-known and prominent farmers of the Middletown Valley, Frederick County.  
He lived near what is now Harmony.  His aprents were of German birth and 
came to America, going to live in Middletown Valley, where he was reared and 
became a highly respected citizen.  His wife was Annie F. Summers, by whom 
he had six children that grew to mature years: Amanda, the wife of Henry 
Coblentz, a farmer of Middletown District; Samuel, followed farming in Woods-
boro District, and is now deceased; John J., Jr.; Annie E., the deceased 
wife of the late Leander Stull, of Creagerstown District; Julia, married 
Lewis P. Ramsburg, of Walkersville, both deceased; and Hezekiah, deceased, 
of Frederick City.  In religion, the family were members of the Lutheran 
Church.

"John J. Putman Jr., son of John J. and Annie E. (Summers) Putman, received 
a common school education and was engaged in rural pursuits all his life.  
He began for himself by cultivating one of his father’s farms in Creagers-
town District, now owned by A. J. Hankey.  This place he successfully man-
aged for some time, and then purchased it.  It contained 145 acres of good 
farm land, and was located about one mile south of Creagerstown.  He later 
disposed of this tract and bought a fine farm near Utica, whither he removed.  
This property he also sold, and returned to the home farm in Middletown 
Valley, where he stayed until his parents died.  Mr. Putman then bought the 
old McDaniel farm, on the Utica road, in Lewistown District.  This farm he 
later sold to his son, J. Frederick, and it is now owned by H. L. Gaver.  Mr. 
Putman then went to live on the M. J. Grove farm in Buckeystown District and 
remained there six years.  He then made sale and later secured by purchase a 
small tract in Lewistown District, which is now owned by his daughter.  The 
remainder of his days was spent here.  His death occurred in October, 1907, 
and he was buried in the Luteran Cemetery at Utica.  In politics, Mr. Putman 
was stanch in his support of the Democracy.  He was a member of the Evangeli-
cal Lutheran Church of Utica, where he held office for a number of years.  
Mr. Putman was married to Rebecca Shriver.  By this marriage there were 
twelve children, eleven of whom grew up: John J., of Tuscarora district; 
Greenberry H.; Annie E., widow of John Warner, and now the wife of Cornelius 
Derr, of Lewistown District.; Elmer E., a resident of Cripple Creek, Cal.; 
J. Frederick; Laura C., married Henry Black, deceased, of Buckeystown Dist-
rict; Julia M., married to George O’Neil, a farmer of Middletown District; 
Minnie, deceased; Lewis W., engaged in agriculture in Frederick District; 
Calvin L.; and Dessie E., the wife of William E. Miller, a merchant of 
Frederick.

"Greenberry H. Putman, son of John J. and Rebecca (Shriver) Putman, is a 
well known farmer of Frederick District, whose sketch appears in this work.  
He was married to Ida R. Joy.

"Charles C. Putman, son of Greenberry H. and Ida R. (Joy) Putman, received 
his education in the public schools of his native county.  The first place 
he managed was a farm of his father in Creagerstown District, where he made 
his home for a short time.  He then bought his present farm of 60 acres from 
John Joy.  This property is situated south-east of Creagerstown on the turn-
pike to Woodsboro.  He uses up-to-date and practical methods, and has re-
ceived large returns from his labors.  Mr. Putman’s farm is a very desirable 
piece of realty.  He also owns a small place, west of Creagerstown.  He owes 
his success in life to hard work an dclose application to business.

"Mr. Putman lends his influence to the candidates of the Democratic party.  
He is a member of the Fraternal Mystic Circle of Creagerstown.  In religious 
affairs, he is affiliated with the Mount Tabor Lutheran Church of Rocky 
Ridge.

"Mr. Putman was married to Bessie N. Mort, daughter of the late Frederick 
and Mary (Pusey) Mort.  Her father was a prominent farmer of Loy’s Station, 
Creagerstown District.  She is also a member of the Lutheran Church.  There 
is no issue by this union."

      PHILIP CRAWFORD, farmer, P. O. Johnsville, born in Frederick County, Md., September 16, 1818; is a son of Joseph and Margaret (Mort) Crawford, natives of Pennsylvania, but who emigrated to Ohio and located in Montgomery County in 1829, where he lived till his death, which occurred in 1832 ; his wife died in 1854. They were parents of four children--Catharine, Philip, Elizabeth and Lydia. The grandfather, Crawford, was a native of’ England, and lived but a few years after coming to America, and but little is now known of his life. Our subject was about eleven years of age when brought to this county by his parents, and about fourteen when his father died, after which he was raised by his mother till he grew to manhood; was married December 28, 1843, to .Jane, daughter of George and Mary Purcell, natives of Pennsylvania, but who became early settlers of Preble County and later of Warren County. They were parents of six children; four now living--Foster, Jane, Thomas and Harvey.  Jane was born in Warren County.  Mr. Crawford and wife have had ten children; seven now survive--John, Mary, Leander, Daniel and Isabell (twins). Agnes and Alice. Mr. Crawford’s entire life has been spent in this township since eleven years of age, and has followed the trade of bricklayer until 1875, since which he has given his attention to farming ; he bought the farm upon which he now lives in 184S. purchasing the same of Jacob Harry, and in the spring of 1849, located upon the farm with his family, where he has since resided, a period of thirty-two years. Mr. Crawford commenced in life a poor man, and by his own labor, industry and good management has accumulated a good competency ; he now owns 150 acres of land. constituting three farms, the greater part of which is in good cultivation with good improvements. Mr. Crawford, as a citizen and neighbor, is held in high esteem; has been Assessor of his township fifteen years. This is an example of success, obtained purely by his own labor and industry, which is worthy of imitation, and which, placed upon the pages of this history, we trust may be read by and produce its salutary effect upon the rising generations.

Passenger gets 3 months in jail
10/09/2002 16:20 - (SA)

Manchester, England - A judge ordered a prison sentence on Tuesday for a man who used a mobile telephone aboard an aircraft, and suggested that airlines confiscate all telephones from passengers.

Faiz Chopdat (23) of Blackburn was sentenced to four months in prison for endangering the safety of an aircraft.

Prosecution witnesses said Chopdat, who was allegedly using his telephone to play a video game, had ignored two warnings from crew and one from a passenger aboard the Air 2000 flight from Luxor, Egypt, to Manchester.

"Potentially, the consequences could be fatal," said Judge Timothy Mort.

"It seems to me that anyone who leaves a mobile phone switched on creates some risk, and maybe the situation has been reached when we have to consider if mobile phones should be confiscated before transit."

Airlines routinely prohibit in-flight use of mobile phones because they can interfere with the plane’s own electronic systems.

Mort said he could have jailed Chopdat for two years.

"You turned the mobile on three times and you were given clear warnings from the cabin crew," the judge said.

"I think this offense is so serious that only a custodial sentence can be justified. It must be in order to deter people from turning on their mobile phones while on a plane. It’s a ’clang of the gate’ sentence," the judge added.

Chopdat’s lawyer, Roger Hedgeland, said his client was returning from his honeymoon and was feeling "some sort of bravado". - Sapa-AP

Money-link in Smit murders?
29/05/2006 19:38 - (SA)

Johannesburg - Could there have been a link between the still unsolved Smit murders and a Swiss bank account that reportedly belonged to late State President Nico Diederichs, a report into corruption under apartheid asks.

The report, released in Johannesburg on Monday, was prepared by the Civil Society in terms of a resolution of the national anti-corruption summit held in March 2005.

According to the report the existence of a secret Swiss bank account, holding R28m and being linked to Diederichs, was uncovered in 1980.

A retired judge, Joe Ludolf, informed the now defunct newspaper, the Rand Daily Mail, of the existence of the account.

Allegedly Diederichs, during his tenure as finance minister, agreed to move the base of South Africa’s gold sales from London to Zurich in the 1970s on condition "that a small amount (per ounce sold) ...would be transferred into a private account".

Friend

A huge public outcry led to an investigation by the Auditor-General who found that the "secret account" belonged to a David Mort and contained only R500.

What emerged, however, although it was swept under the carpet, was that Mort was a friend of Diederichs.

Around the same time, it emerged that the Erasmus Commission, that investigated the Information scandal, had also probed the existence of a secret Swiss bank account said to contain R128m.

"It seemed impossible to shake the story that money was being stashed abroad and that Dr Gold (Diederichs) was linked to this in some way."

According to the report the mystery deepened even further when a safety deposit box Diederichs had opened at Volkskas Bank shortly before his death, was found to be empty weeks after he died.

"What evidence had been whisked away?" the report asks.

"Did Diederichs own a foreign bank account to conceal stolen assets, or did it belong to others within the ruling elite (including the Broederbond)?

"Questions remain about the bank account and whether it was linked to the mysterious Smit murders in 1977."

One theory, according to the report, is that Robert Smit was "on to something, possibly involving foreign bank accounts".     .  .  .  .  .

Tiny town of Runanga unites to banish tragedy

By Jeanette O’Shea

        Tragedy has knocked once too often for the residents of the tiny West Coast town of Runanga.
        A mine cave-in, misadventure, sudden death, a road accident and two as-yet unexplained deaths have claimed six lives over the past four months.
        If that was not enough, a flash flood swept through the township last month, leaving several families homeless and causing thousands of dollars in damage.
        And two weeks ago a suspicious fire razed a local house.
        Enough being enough, a group of residents banded together and decided it was time to consult a higher authority.
        Following talks with local church leaders, the residents arranged a prayer walk to cleanse the town of whatever was causing such grief.
        Braving a stiff breeze from the snowcapped Southern Alps, about 30 residents huddled for prayer at Runanga’s small Sacred Heart Parish Catholic church before taking a circuit of the township’s lone school, pensioner flats, domain and community hall. The ceremony wound up with prayers and hymns at the St Thomas Anglican Church on a hill overlooking the town.
        Tears were shed and holy water sprinkled as grieving relatives, supported by neighbours and friends, called for a new beginning for the town.
        "After the little girl died people started saying there is something wrong with Runanga," said Barry Smithson, the Anglican minister who led the procession.
        "And those that approached the Ministers Association and requested them to come and pray over their town are not even practising Christians.
        "There has been a lot of tragedy, so many things and all in proximity to each other."
        Coroner Tony Sullivan’s findings are still pending on the death of the 11-year-old girl, whose death on May 4 may have been due to misadventure. He is also looking into the deaths of two local men in April.
        The pain of the deaths, so close together, has cut sharply in this working class town, which has its roots in coal mining and is proud to be known as the birthplace of the New Zealand labour movement.
        Set deep in the Grey River valley between the Paparoa Ranges and State Highway 6, better known as the West Coast Road, Runanga Township struggles to maintain just 566 occupied households.
        At one time it was a boom town, an important hub in the West Coast’s mining past. But recent amalgamation with the Grey District has taken away what some say were its last shreds of identity.
        It was on a tight curve heading out of the township on the Coast road that the car in which Steven Mort was a passenger left the road and rolled into a siding on May 28. Mr Mort, 29, died beneath a monument marking the spot where 100 years earlier two men were murdered when the stagecoach carrying the Runanga miners’ payroll was hijacked.
        Within 24 hours of Mr Mort’s death, his close neighbour, taxi driver William Henham, dropped dead of heart failure near Porters Pass while returning from a trip to Christchurch.
        "At one stage there were funerals going on simultaneously in houses on opposite sides of the same street," said a resident.
        It is not as though the townsfolk are strangers to tragedy.
        Runanga was one of the hardest-hit communities in the district when the nearby Strongman mine collapsed in 1967 and killed 19, among them many of the town’s able-bodied men.
        It may even be said that Runanga folk handle trauma better than most.
        This was reflected in the ease with which they rushed into action on March 8, when the nearby Blackreef Mine flooded, killing one of their own - Robert McGowan, who left behind a young wife and family.
        Scones were baked and hot food appeared seamlessly for the rescue teams as they fought through the chilly night in an effort to free Mr McGowan and another miner trapped below ground.
        "There is a high population of widows in this town," said Mr Smithson, who has spent most of his 60-plus years of life in the tidy bungalow he shares with his wife on the Seven Mile Road, "over the years people have died of mine-related illnesses and a lot have been killed in the mines."

John S. Farmer’s Canting Songs and Slang Rhymes

Towre Out Ben Morts

Towre Out Ben Morts
1610
By SAMUEL ROWLANDS
in “Martin Mark-all, Beadle of Bridewell: His Defence and Answere to the Belman of London”.

I
Towre out ben morts & towre, [1] look-out, good women;
Looke out ben morts & towre,
For all the Rome coues are budgd a beake, [2] all the Rome-coves [Notes] have run away [Notes]
And the quire coves tippe the lowre. [3] Queer-coves taken the money

II
The quire coues are budgd to the bowsing ken, [4] have sneaked to the ale-house
As Romely as a ball, [5] nimbly
But if we be spid we shall be clyd, [6] whipped
And carried to the quirken hall. [7] taken to gaol.

III
Out budgd the Coue of the ken, [8] crept; master of the house
With a ben filtch in his quarr’me [9] staff; hand.
That did the prigg good that bingd in the kisome, [10] went to search for the man who had given the alarm.
To towre the Coue budge alar’me.

Notes

Samuel Rowlands, a voluminous writer circa 1570-1628, though little known now, nevertheless kept the publishers busy for thirty years, his works selling readily for another half century. Not the least valuable of his numerous productions from a social and antiquarian point of view is Martin Mark-All, Beadle of Bridewell; his Defence and Answere to the Belman of London (see both Notes ante).

Martin Markall delivers himself of a vivid and “originall” account of “the Regiment of Rogues, when they first began to take head, and how they have succeeded one the other successively unto the sixth and twentieth year of King Henry the Eighth, gathered out of the Chronicle of Crackropes” etc. He then criticizes somewhat severely the errors and omissions in Dekker’s Canting glossary, adding considerably to it, and finally joins issue with the Belman in an attempt to give “song for song”. Dekker’s “Canting Rhymes” (plagiarised from Copland) and “The Beggar’s Curse” thus apparently gave birth to the present verses and to those entitled “The Maunder’s Wooing” that follow.

Stanza I, line i. Ben = Lat. bene = good. Mort = a woman, chaste or not. Line 3. Rome-cove = “a great rogue” (B. E., Dict. Cant. Crew, 1690), i.e., an organizer, or the actual perpetrator of a robbery: quire-cove = a subordinate thief—the money had passed from the actual thief to his confederate. Rom (or rum) and quier (or queer) enter largely into combination, thus—rom = gallant, fine, clever, excellent, strong; rom-bouse = wine or strong drink; rum-bite = a clever trick or fraud; rum-blowen = a handsome mistress; rum-bung = a full purse; rum-diver = a clever pickpocket; rum-padder = a well-mounted highwayman, etc.: also queere = base, roguish; queer-bung = an empty purse; queer-cole = bad money; queer-diver = a bungling pickpocket; queer-ken = a prison; queer-mart = a foundered whore, and so forth. Budge = a general verb of action, usually stealthy action: thus, budge a beak = to give the constable the slip, or to bilk a policeman; to budge out (or off) = to sneak off; to budge an alarm = to give warning.

A Mort’s Drinking Song

A Mort’s Drinking Song
1641

From A Jovial Crew, by RICHARD BROME:
Enter Patrico with his old wife with a wooden bowle of drink. She is drunk. She sings:—.
I
This is bien bowse, this is bien bowse, [1] strong ale
  Too little is my Skew. [2] cup or platter
I bowse no lage, but a whole gage [3] water; pot
  Of this I’ll bowse to you.

II
This bowse is better than rom-bowse, [4] wine
  It sets the gan a-gigling, [5] mouth
The autum-mort finds better sport [6] wife
  In bowsing than in nigling. [7] fornicating
    This is bien bowse, etc.

[She tosses off her bowle, falls back and is carried out.]

Local Facts on Woollahra, Australia:

ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH - Ocean Street, Woollahra. Large Victorian Academic Gothic sandstone parish church, chancel, apse and portion of nave built in 1876, last three bays of nave in 1883 (BLACKET), first floor of tower, north and south porches to Blacket’s designs, 1926 (H.C. KENT) The major benefactor was Henry Mort.

ASCHAM SCHOOL - Darling Point: The property which includes ’Glenrock’, ’The Dower House’ and ’Rona’ now’ comprises Ascham School. The School was commenced in 1886 by Miss Marie Wallis with a class of nine girls in a terrace house in Marathon Ave, Darling Point taking its name from Roger Ascham (1515-68) a famous English classical scholar. The school moved in 1895 to ’Delamere’ in Goomera Crescent and in 1901 to ’Mount Adelaide’ (the Henry Mort house), finally in 1909 to ’Glenrock’. Colours are navy blue, red and khaki, motto, ’Vi et Animo’ (with Heart and Soul).

BISHOPS COURT - Greenoaks Avenue, Darling Point. Gothic Revival house built 1841, for Thomas Woolley, a Sydney ironmonger, calling it Percyville with J.F. HILLY as architect. Most of the front of the present house is the original design. In 1846, Thomas Sutcliffe Mort purchased the property and enlarged it, naming it Greenoaks and in the late 1850’s to the early 1860’s transformed the interior in a grand manner - Blacket was his architect. Further extensions were made in 1935 to the designs of Leslies Wilkinson. It has been the Anglican Archbishop’s residence since 1911.

BROOKSBY - Demolished house, was on the slopes of Darling Point in Double Bay opposite Guilfoyle Avenue. Believed built by James Maclehose in 1838 (unnamed) and occupied on completion by George Cooper Turner, a Solicitor. It was bought by Mr Robert Johnson in 1847 who named it Brooksby after his family home in Leicestershire: later occupied by Robert Tooth (additions by BLACKET in I848-50) also by Thomas Mort - demolished in 1965 (G. Nesta Griffiths, ’Some Houses and People in NSW). Click here for more information.

COTHAM - No 316 Jersey Road, Edgecliff. A two-storeyed residence was for a time an unofficial rectory for All Saints’ Church in Woollahra, its first rector, Canon Wallace Mort had lived there.

GREENOAKS COTTAGE - 3A Greenoaks Avenue, Darling Point. A substantial Victorian Academic Gothic style house built in the late 1860’s by T.S. Mort intending to move into it while leasing Greenoaks - he did not make the move.

MORTS COTTAGE - Victorian Rustic Gothic cottage probably built in 1838 for Samuel Peek and altered to present style (HILLY).

MOUNT ADELAIDE - Darling Point. The name was originally given by William MacDonald who acquired the 13 3/4 acre ’grant’ in 1833. A cottage Derby Lodge was built, around 1843, on this the highest point in Darling Point by John Mortimer Lewis, Colonial Architect at the time, bought by John Croft in 1856 who reverted the name back to Mount Adelaide. Henry Mort bought and enlarged it adding a second story (BLACKET), later used by Ascham School then sold to Sir Samuel Hordern who demolished it building Babworth House on the site.

ST MARK’S CHURCH - An Anglican Church on Darling Point Road, Darling Point. In 1839, St Peter’s Church, Cooks River, was established but because of the vast area its clergy was required to cover, Chapels of Ease were attached - Newtown, Canterbury, Kogarah, Botany and St Mark’s temporary chapel, Alexandria North (now Darling Point). In 1847, the Rev. Thomas Steele of St Peter’s secured the use of a coach house belonging to Mr Thomas Ware Smart of Mona as a chapel - the first church wardens being Mr Smart, Thomas Whistler Smith and T.S. Mort (the three Toms). The Holy Trinity Church at Horncastle, Lincolnshire, England formed the model for St Mark’s, built under the direction of Edmund Blackett and on land donated by T.S. Mort - the spire was added in 1875 and donated by William Laidley. St Mark’s was opened for Divine Service on November 7, 1852.

ST MARK’S COTTAGE - Darling Point Rd, Darling Point. The Laidleys were a family of considerable significance in the history of Darling Point. James Laidley (1788-1835) arrived in Sydney in 1827 becoming Commissary-General living at Rose Bank (site of the old William Street Post Office) and had eight children. His first daughter, Theresa, married Thomas Sutcliffe Mort, the second, Elizabeth, married James Mitchell, the third, Maria married Henry Mort, the fourth, Catherine Marianne, married James Dowling and another Emily married a George Merrivale (Annery). His son William was to donate the spire for St Mark’s Church. James died in 1835 and his widow lived for some time before her death in 1860 in St Mark’s Cottage.

  These are abstracts from Equity Court Records of Frederick County, 
Maryland, many times providing family data on the defendant and 
sometimes on persons not mentioned on the docket. Some of the listings are 
quite informative while others, being dismissed, may only have the date and 
name of plantiff and defendant. However, the cases brought before the judge 
consisted of sworn testimony and each one holds a story. Perhaps you will 
find a story connected to your search.

Folio 197-204 dated 12 May 1817 - 
Adam SNOOK & others vs Margaret MORT & John MORT of Christopher

This bill was filed to obtain decree for sale. Margaret MORT and John MORT of 
Christopher were said to be "out of the state of Maryland" and were minors and 
needed a guardain assigned. All plantiffs and defendants were tenants-in-common. 
(Oddly, I did not find the parents of these individuals noted even though it 
appeared to me they were brothers and sisters.)

Land - part of tract "Morts Lott" which was part of "Resurvey on Mackey’s Choice"
 (100 ac); "Resurvey on Welsh Cabin"(8 3/4 ac); "Resurvey on Mackey’s Choice" 
 (12 3/4 ac); part of "Long Snake" (22 1/2 ac); all contiguous.

Sale was published in the Political Examiner in Fredericktown and continued til 
October. Sale was held in Middleburgh on 14 Jan 1818 with Adam SNOOK 
being the highest bidder paying $3,280.36.

(I didn’t find the exact relationship to Adam SNOOK noted - perhaps he was the 
husband to a deceased sister or was a neighbor who had bought out some of the 
others. It was stated he possessed three undivided parts of 7 parts which may
indicate he had bought out two other siblings or was a neighbor and bought 
out three of the heirs.

Carroll County, Maryland
Land Record Abstracts - Liber WW-1
1837-1838
    Since Carroll County was formed in 1837, this is the first book of land 
    records recorded in that county. The majority of these listings indicate 
    whether the land previously had been in Frederick or Baltimore County. 
    Many times, family relationships are listed and there is usually a good 
    reference to the previous land holders and surrounding land tract names. 
    An every-name index is included which also contains the names of the land 
    tracts. Even a couple of references to family graveyards were found. 
    This book of abstracts is useful in locating ancestors and land previously 
    owned by them, and possibly even a link to family relationships. Since all 
    abstracts are subject to interpretation by the compiler, it is necessary 
    to obtain a copy of the deed or record itself, for verification of all facts
     and interpretations as well as obtaining the metes and bounds. This book 
     should prove useful in learning which records are needed for your research.

    Note: All entries are deeds and all parties are from Carroll County - 
    unless noted otherwise. The first entry starts on page (folio) 5.

"History of Frederick County, Maryland, Vol. II"
Thomas John Chase Williams, L. R. Titsworth & Co., 1910
pp. 1512-3

"WILLIAM HENRY MORT, who is among the prosperous and esteemed citizens of
Woodsboro District, owns 177 acres of fine land, situated five miles north
of the town of Woodsboro.  Here he has resided since a boy of four or five
years.  He was born on the Walter farm in Emmittsburg District, Frederick
County, January 16, 1850.  He is a son of William and Catharine (Oler) Mort.

"George Mort, the grandfather of William H. Mort, was a day laborer.  He was
twice married.  His first wife was a Miss Fox, a sister of Balser Fox, of
the neighborhood of Creagerstown.  After her death, Mr. Mort was married
again.  By the first marriage, he had one child, William, and by the second
he was the father of several children.

"William Mort, son of George Mort, was an infant when his mother died and he
was taken by an aunt.  He lived among strangers until he went to his trade.
He was given a common school education and when about fourteen years old
went to learn the trade of a stone mason.  This occupation he followed for
many years, until he bought a farm, now owned by his son.  Even afterwards
he engaged at his trade occasionally.  When he finished his trade he did not
have money enough to buy tools.  For a time he worked for William Ogle, a
contractor at Union Bridge.  Mr. Mort also did some contracting for himself,
erecting many lime kilns.  After his marriage, he made his home at various
places until 1854, when he purchased the place on which he lived until he
retired to Thurmont.  At that place he died in 1887, and is buried at Rocky
Cemetery.  He used his influence to advance the interests of the Republican
party.  He held membership in the Lutheran Church.  Mr. Mort was married
near Bridgeport, Frederick County, to Catharine Oler, who was born and
raised near that place.  Her parents were Frederick and Peggy (Lynn) Oler.
She died at her sister’s, Mrs. Powell, near Creagerstown, in 1889.  She was
a Lutheran in religion.  By this marriage were born four children; Frances
Anna, the wife of Simon Lohr, of Thurmont; Frederick, who died at Loy’s
Station, Frederick County, married Mary Pusey; William Henry; and George,
died aged two years.

"William Henry Mort, son of William and Catharine (Oler) Mort, received his
education at Grove’s Academy near his home.  At the age of twenty he quit
school.  He worked for his father on the farm until he was thirty-six years
old.  After his marriage in 1886, he worked away from the home farm for
three years.  He then bought the homestead, and here he has since been
engaged in rural pursuits.  His home was built in the early forties by John
Miller.  The barn was put up by his father in 1870.  Mr. Mort is a farmer
who thoroughly understands his vocation and he received large returns from
his labors.  He is highly thought of in the community in which he resides.

"In 1886, Mr. Mort was married to Seraphine Elizabeth Ceas, daughter of
Nathaniel and Rebecca Ann (McKissick) Ceas.  She is a native of Hauver’s
District, Frederick County.  Mr. and Mrs. Mort are affiliated with the Luth-
eran Church at Rocky Ridge, in which he has served in the capacity of a
deacon several times.  They have no issue."

JOHN MORT

John Mort, senior vice of Shiloh Post No. 56, G. A. R., and one of the honored veterans of the Civil war residing in Crawford county, was born in Tuscarawas county, Ohio, August 15, 1833. A man now past the seventieth milestone of life, and among the remainder of the great host of our ex-soldiers who will soon be marching on, his career has been filled with useful deeds both to himself and family and to his country, and he deserves the high esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens of Crawford county. Mr. Mort has been a resident of Crawford county since 1881, and has thus been identified with the county throughout its most progressive and important period of history.

Mr. Mort enlisted at Lima, Allen county, Ohio, August 22, 1862, in Company D, One Hundred and Eighteenth Ohio Infantry, under Colonel Mack and Lieutenant Colonel Walkup, and his company had three captains, successively, Berth, Taylor and Doty. From the camp at Lima they went to Cincinnati, and during Morgan’s raid crossed the Ohio and went to Covington, Kentucky. After the siege of Knoxville and the battle at Chickamauga they took part in Sherman’s great campaign, being in the battles of Resaca, Kenesaw Mountain, New Hope Church, Burnt Hickory, and then in the siege of Atlanta. On the 22d of July, 1864, at Atlanta, while Mr. Mort was filling his canteen with water General McPherson rode up and asked him for a drink, which was gladly given. That was the gallant general’s last drink, for only a little while afterward he was killed, being the second Union general slain on that day. From Atlanta Mr. Mort was in the forces sent back to engage Hood in the battles at Franklin and Nashville. Thence he was sent to Washington, and down into the Carolinas, joining Sherman’s army again, and was with his command at Raleigh and other points in North Carolina. He received several injuries during his service, and throughout made an excellent record as a soldier. He was honorably discharged at Cleveland, Ohio, and then returned to his old home in Allen county.

Mr. Mort was a son of George and Polly Mort. His father was a native of Maryland, and was a soldier in the war of 1812. He died in Allen county, Ohio, at the age of eighty-eight, while his wife, who was a native of Maryland, died in Tuscarawas county, at the age of sixty. The father was a stonemason by trade, and in the war of 1812 helped build the fort at Baltimore. He later took up the trade of cooper. There were nine children in the family, five sons and four daughters.

On his arrival in Crawford county in 1881 Mr. Mort bought a farm of eighty acres, and he still owns this valuable place near Cherokee. He was married in Allen county, Ohio, at the age of twenty-three to Miss Christina Harpster, a daughter of Jacob Harpster. She died in Ohio in 1873, having been the mother of nine children, eight of whom are living, namely: Isaac, Thomas, Daniel, Sarah J., Homer, Thomas, William, Frank and Clara. Mr. Mort then married his present wife, Lucinda Swank, the widow of Francis Swank. Mr. Swank was a soldier in Company E of the Forty-fifth Ohio Infantry, was taken prisoner at Knoxville and spent thirteen months in the southern prisons at Belle Isle, Salisbury and Andersonville. He left one son, George W. Swank, of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Mrs. Mort was a daughter of B. Dickerson. Mr. and Mrs. Mort have two children, John Amos and Retta Della Greenwell, of this county. Mr. Mort is a stanch Republican, and, as has been stated, is very prominent in local Grand Army circles.

Eugene Edward Meier

Eugene Edward Meier, age 82 of Crestview, Fla., went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, June 17, 2001. He was born in Dayton, Ohio, on Aug. 1, 1918, the only son of Edward and Agnes Mort Meier.
      During his journey on this earth, he graduated from Fairmont High School in Dayton in 1936. In 1942, he enlisted in the USMC, where he later participated in combat in the Solomon Islands and Guadalcanal with the 1st Marine Division. He was discharged in October 1945, and reenlisted in the U.S. Air Force in February 1948. He then served as an intelligence linguist, fluent in German and Russian, until September 1964 when he retired. He continued to work in the intelligence career field for the U.S. government in Washington, D.C. He obtained a BA in history from the University of Maryland.
      He was a member of Gideons International from 1969-2001. In Washington, D.C., he served as the treasurer for the Delmardic State Gideons auxiliary. When he moved to Orlando, Fla., he was elected as president of the Gideons International in Orlando. Upon moving to Crestview, he joined Gideon Camp and was elected to the position of president.
      Gene has served all of the churches he has attended in his lifetime in many positions, from president of the church council to Sunday school teacher to deacon and was a counselor at the Billy Graham Crusade in Orlando, just to name a few. Gene was a member of the First Baptist Church of Crestview, where he served as a Sunday school teacher and completed two terms as a deacon of the church before the Lord called him home.
      He was preceded in death by his wives, Mildred Franz Meier, Elizabeth Murray Meier and Miriam Lazeroff Meier. He is survived by his loving wife, Helen Heckle Meier of Crestview; a son, Ronald Meier, also of Crestview; two daughters, Gigi Bartholomeo of Fort Washington, Md., and Suse Greenstone of Gettysburg, Pa.; four stepchildren; 14 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Texan adds to the mystery of child who vanished in ’82
By NANCY A. FISCHER and ANDREW Z. GALARNEAU
News Niagara Bureau
8/11/2005

Russell Mort was 2&1/2; when he disappeared from the yard of his home in Wheatfield.
      Investigators say they are skeptical about a 22-year-old Texas man’s suggestion that he might be the same person as the Wheatfield child who disappeared in 1982.
      It would be an amazing story - national news operations are calling the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department for updates - but "it’s a long shot at best," Chief Investigator Bruce Roth said Wednesday.
      On May 5, 1982, when Russell Mort vanished from the yard of his family’s home in Lynch Trailer Court, he was 21/2 years old.
      A Texas man, who recently saw the missing boy’s picture on the Web site of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, thought that he might be the boy. But he was born in 1983, officials said, a four-year difference.
      If this were Russell Mort, who was born Sept. 4, 1979, he would be 25.
      "It’s doubtful, but we are proceeding and are taking all steps to check it out," Roth said. "It’s not a law enforcement investigation right now."
      Roth said investigators from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and local investigators will go to Texas to interview the man, whose name has not been made public. "If the story is plausible," he said, "they will get a DNA sample."
      Investigators have already obtained a DNA sample from Russell Mort’s mother, the investigator said.
      "We have talked to Ruth Mort and got a DNA sample from her (Wednesday)," Roth said. If the sample is not needed, he said, it can be kept in the missing persons bank for future comparisons.
      Russell Mort disappeared 23 years ago when his mother left him unattended for a few minutes to go into the family home to repair a toy. Searchers feared that he had fallen into the Niagara River, which passes about 200 feet from the home. Hundreds who looked for the boy, with help from helicopters and bloodhounds, turned up no sign of him.
      As the official search was called off, and weeks and months passed, investigators turned their thoughts to the possibility that the boy had been abducted.
      Posters with Russell’s picture were distributed nationwide. His picture was shown on C-SPAN, with those of other missing children, in 1985.
      In 1988, the Mort family’s hopes were raised when the picture of a boy found wandering in Juarez, Mexico, resembled their son. But they were disappointed again after fingerprints proved that the boy was not Russell.
      Roth said that the current story began when a Texan who was adopted became uneasy about his history and background. The man told authorities that his adopted mother had given him a vague story about his origins.
      So the Texas man started doing his own research. By then, Russell Mort’s picture had made it to the Internet.
      The man thought that it might be him and contacted the center, Roth said, and officials put the man in contact with Ruth Mort.
      The Texas man has a reported birth date of 1983, making him 22. Russell Mort would be 26 in about three weeks.
      "If it turns out to be him, it would be wonderful," Roth said, "but again, it’s a long shot at best."
      it be great if it turns out to he him.
