I Certify, that I have carefully examined the said John Mort of Captain
Maulsby's Company, and find him incapable of performing the duties
of a soldier because of Glaucoma of both eyes--the sight of right
eye is entirely gone and that of the left eye much impaired.
The disease of right eye existed previous to enlistment.
He is unable for duty in the Invalid Corps.

   Sgt. Yancy James Mort, a distant cousin of us, called from his home
in 1904-B Anderson Loop, Yman, AZ 85365.  Earlier this year while he 
was located at Williamsport, PA, he contracted us.  He came to visit 
with us, as I had his granfather's funeral in Allentown, PA.  He was my 
uncle, who was James V. Mort, Jr., who died on July 15, 1974, at the age
of 83, who served his country in WWI.  One of his sons was Charles Mort,
Yancy's father, who is still living in Orlando, FL.
   I supposed that's enough introduction of myself.  I'm resiging at the
Lewisburg United Methodist Homes, with my wife, Edythe H., we've been
married 51 years ago in Williamsport, PA., a retired U.M. Minister,
having served the Eastern PA Conference for 48 years; came here in 1991,
both enjoying our usual good health, & quot;Thank God& quot;!
   We understand you are interested in the THE MORT FAMILY TREE.
   ADAM Mort was married to Harriet Dobbs.  They had several children
including my grandfather, JAMES VINCENT MORT, who was married to
SARAH JANE CURRY, who had 11 children, including my father, who was
WILLIAM OLIVER MORT, who married ANNA MAE;TILEY, who had 4 children 
including the yougest child, JAMES FRANKLIN MORT.
   I'm the proud owner of a Bible purchased by Harriet Dobbs in 1883,
published by the British Bible Society in 1837 in which is a lock of
hair by Harriet.
   As far as I know:  Adam Mort & amp; Harriet Dobbs had the following
children: boys--Adam, George, Lot, Levi, and James F.; girls--Martha,
Mariah, Emma, and Pearl.  I'm a descendant of Adam, thru James.  My
father was William Oliver, who married Anna Mae Tiley, whose parents
were Esther Thompson and Joseph Tiley.
   The Morts that I knew were residing in Schuylkill County, PA.  I was
born in the only home my parents owned, located at 222 W Railroad St Sreet,
Girardville, PA., my grandmother was the mid-wife, when I came into the 
world, she announced now we have our Jimmie.  Grandfather Mort was always 
wanting his granchildrem's names of boys, after him.  My parents were the
proud of each of us:  Margaret Esther Mort, William Joseph, Clinton James 
and myself.
   Edythe M. Hall was born on January 11, 1920 in Williamsport, graduated
from Williamsport High School in 1937, graduated from Erie Hospital in 
1943, married on September 20, 1945 to James F. Mort in St. John's 
Evangelical Church, Williamsport, PA.
   We have two children:  Timothy James resides in Medford, OR; works for
 NBC-TV on the West Coast, he and Kathleen Discoll were married in 1983,

                                    Love and Pease, Edythe and Jim Mort


George Mort property in Ashland Borough, Schuylkil  County, Pennsylvania.

     The Ashland House was located at the southwest corner of Third
and Center Streets, and no one with the name of Mort owned the land
on which the hotel was erected.
     George Mort, however, did own four lots, each 25' x 125', on
the northwest corner of Third and Brock Streets.
     Attached are four pages from a title search made in 1950. Two
of them show how George Mort acquired title to the land, and the
other two show how his widow and Estate conveyed unto Lewis P.
Garner and William A. Christian.
     Attached also are two pages from a 1957 publication, "The
Ashland Story" by James F. Canfield. The part on "Garner's Iron
Works", top of page 8, shows that the iron works moved to the
Garner and Christian premises.
     The final attachment is a photo of a portion of a map in a
1875 Schuylkill County Atlas which shows the "Garner &  Christian
Machinery Iron Works" located on the Mort land.

	All those four lots in Ashland on the west side of Third street, 
being the lots marked on the lithographed map or plan of said Borough 
numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 in section 85. Subject to exceptions as in the 
deed from John Brock to George Mort Aug 17, 1858. George Mort on July 1
1868 made an agreement of sales with Lewis P. Garner and William A.
Christian, t/a Garner and Christian for the premises. Mort died 
before giving a deed, so the OC was asked to make an order of 
specific performance which was made Apr 25, 1870 directing a 
conveyance upon payment of the purchase price balance. On Mar 13, 
1871 the court determined that the dower of M. F. Mort, the widow, 
had not been divested by the sale by George Mort in his lifetime and 
that therefore the balance due should be paid to the widow upon her 
executing a deed for her right of dower. 
NOTES:  D.B. 105-261 has the agreement, recorded Dec 7, 1868
OC 14-576 is a proceeding for the sale for the payment of debts
There are voluminous papers in the M-1869 file which show the above 
proceeding, but they do not seem to have been entered in any docket

In a message dated 97-08-29 14:07:44 EDT, you write:
  I found the surname MORT listed in an index connected with your name,
I hope I don't disapoint you, but I have almost nothing on this line. My
Aunt Dorthea, who is still living in Rochester, NY, married Harold Mort (his
second marriage). He died several years ago. I know he had a daughter by his
first wife and two daughters by my aunt. One cousin lives in the Washington,
DC area and I think the other is still in the Rochester area. I don't know if
he had any relatives around or not - I never heard of any. I might be able to
find out something for you if you think still want it.

Not much more than you had before but I have the children of the Martin

descendants but if you do, I'd like to hear about it.

State of Pennsylvania
Schuylkill County

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.

State of Pennsylvania
Schuylkill County

Personally appeared before me onr 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

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.

From Yancy Mort:

Yesterday I received some info from a funeral home in E.
Palestine Oh. with another Mort (not related) that they buried. That man
was Edgar Allen Mort (born 10/21/1916 Pa., died 7/24/1996 Oh.), son of Roy
F. Mort, son of James R. Mort, son of William Mort and Nancy Varner. It
would appear that Roy F. Mort (Burnt Cabin Morts) moved out there to
Columbiana Co. I spoke to Roy F.'s  son Robert Mort yesterday, who says he
remembers his father and George Washington Mort Jr. (my line) were friends
back in the early 1920's. He remembers where George lived in Youngstown,
and that his father and George would go out and drink it up on many a
night. He also mentions that they called one another distant cousins,
though through our research we've definitely proven otherwise, as the Burnt
Cabin Morts were from Md., and mine were from England and immigrated
1838-1842 or so (via Naturalization papers on my Adam Mort). Just thought
that was a neat little tidbit of information, that our two Mort families
knew one another quite well, through these two boisterous men.
