Dear Mr. Gradeless,

My husband found on the Internet that you have an accumulation of some 6,000 records on the Mort family, and that you are willing to share information. Wow. I am so impressed! I am looking for:

FRANCES MORTE, born 1788 in Virginia. She came to Green County, Kentucky about 1814 with her husband (whose name apparently was RINOD) and two children. She had another child in 1815, and then married Abraham CLARK on 6 July 1816. The marriage record stated she was Franky RINOD. The three children took the name of Clark, and were raised by Abraham and Frances. Frances and Abraham Clark were still living in the 1850 census -- hence the information as to birth and birthplace.

The reason I know she was a Morte is, that on a church record when their daughter was living in Metcalfe County, Kentucky, she gave her parents' names as Abraham Clark and Frances Morte (the maiden name was requested).

The name could have been MORTE or MARTE (couldn't really tell, but I assume it to be Morte). I have often wondered if it was a derivation of something else like Morten or Marten. (I've wondered about the name RINOD. Could it be Renauld? Reynold? or ???)

This is all I know. I have absolutely no clues where in Virginia. I hope you can help me Enclosed is five dollars and a self addressed stamped envelope. If you care to correspond with me by E Mail, my address is dorothyw@slkc.uswest.net.

Thank you.

From John Mort:
Frederick County, Maryland - Equity Liber JS-1
SNOOK vs MORT - 12 May 1817 - Folio 197-204

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. Heirs listed -

Donald —
Since I don't know just what info you have on Abraham Mort this info may or may not be useful.
          The 1870 Census states that he lived in Davis Township (Strasburg area). Since he is buried at the Boehm Cemetery, it is likely that he live west of Strasburg. The Boehm Cemetery is located about 3 miles west of Strasburg.
          The 1870 Census states that Abram Mort was 65 years old, a carpenter, holding worth $500, and he was born in Maryland. His wife, Catherine Mort 59, keeps house, born in Holland William D. Mort a child, 14, works on Farm, born Virginia
          There is a Fannie Mort, 20 living in a Crabill household in Davis District.
          There is a Laura Mort, 10 living in a Kneisley household in Johnson District (Woodstock area).
          There are a number of marriages related to this family in the marriage book I mentioned earlier.
          William D. Hockman, to Elizabeth V. Mort, on 8 Oct 1857, by H. B. Winton, Page 18, line 84. Married at Abr. Mort's place. The groom was 24, single, a farmer, born in Shen. Co. Va., residing near Strasburg, Va., and the son of John Hockman and Catharine Hockman. The bride was 21, single, born in Washington Co. Md., residing near Strasburg, Va., and the dau/ of Abraham and Ann C. Mort. Remarks: 3 Oct 1857. Consent of Father in person.
          Isaac Bushong to Sarah Ann Mort, on 18 Dec 1861, by John Pirkey. Page 36, Line 65. The Marriage took place at Strasburg, Va., The groom was 40, widowed, a farmer, born in and residing in Shen. Co. Va., and the son of Andrew & Elizabeth Bushong. The bride was 21, single, born in Washington Co. Md., and residing in Shen. Co. Va., the day of Abrahm and Catharine Mort. Remarks: 18 Dec 61.
          There is a total of seven marriages listed in the book that relates to the Mort family. If this info is of interest let me know.
          I checked all the history and genealogy books that I have for other references to the Mort family without any luck.
          I know of a genealogist who lives at Toms Brook who looks up records at the Courthouse and etc for a fee. She recently acquired access to the Internet. Should you want record research let me know and I will have her contact you.

I have always referred to my 4th great-grandfather as "John Mathias Mort, Jr." based on information given me by my great-uncle Norman "Tim" Mort and his sister Vivian Marcella Wetzel (Mort). In most current research materials, he is more commonly referred to as "Mathias Mort," son of John Mort, son of Mathias Mort (d. 1802). Also, my grandmother Berneice Margaret Reinhardt (Mort) and her siblings always referred to their grandfather Mort as "Grandpa Josiah," and never as "Cy" or "Cyrus" as noted in certain lineages and at least one US Census. The Mort Family Reunion will be held this year at the farm of the Bruce Alan Reinhardt, son of Berneice (Mort) and Lynn Reinhardt, on Saturday, August 15, 1998. The home is located on Old US Route 40 between Ohio SR 201 & SR 202 (exact address forth coming). While the bulk of past attendees have been direct descendants of Michael Joseph Mort and Ida Mabel Apple, all Morts and descendants are welcome to attend. Please bring a covered dish and a beverage - burgers, brats, hot dogs and condiments provided. If you would like more information, or if you will be a first time attendee, please contact me, Nick Neylon, at 504-399-1864 or NNeylon@Petronet.ent

Progressive Men of Iowa [p.147]

Holmes, Samuel,of Hamburg, is a lawyer whose professional as well as individual reputation is now state wide, and well worthy of the proud commonwealth to which he belongs. He was born in West Leigh near Manchester, Eng., January 1, 1839. Both his parents were silk weavers, and in 1841 left England for America and settled on a farm near Hennepin, Ill. In 1852, his father, James Holmes, went overland to California, remaining two years. Upon his return he took his family to La Salle county, Ill., where he cultivated a large farm, twelve miles south of La Salle city. In 1863, his mother, Hannah Mort Holmes, died.

Like many sons of pioneers, Mr. Holmes obtained an education with difficulty. During the winter months he attended the public schools, working on the farm the remainder of the year. He was fond of books and of study, and made the most of the opportunities presented to him. He would go many miles to attend a debating society and was an expert speller. After he was 21 years of age he attended Granville academy and Wheaton college, working at the same time in order to pay for his board, tuition and clothing. After two years at Wheaton he taught school in his home district. He then began to read law in his leisure moments. In 1865, he came to Iowa, and in the following year located permanently at Hamburg, which was then a village of very few houses. For two years he read law in the office of R. K. Crandall, when he entered the law department of the State university and graduated in 1868. He returned to Hamburg and formed a partnership with Mr. Crandall. He was afterwards associated in the firms of Holmes & Simons, Dalby & Holmes, and Holmes & French, all leading law firms of southwestern Iowa. During the past eleven years he has been alone in the practice. Mr. Holmes has one of the largest offices and one of the most complete law libraries in that part of the state. He has been retained as counsel in many important cases in the district, supreme and United States courts. For twelve years Mr. Holmes held the office of United States commissioner, but resigned the position in order to devote all his time to his profession. He is the author of the well-known book, “Township Laws of Iowa” which has run through two large editions.

For ten years he was vice-president and president of the Farmers and Merchants bank, of Hamburg. During recent years he has devoted some of his time to developing one of the largest fruit farms in the state.

Politically, Mr. Holmes was an uncompromising republican until the party took, what he considered to be, a “backward step” in 1894, on the temperance question. He was a prohibitionist in theory, a leader in local and state temperance organizations, and was one of the chief factors in the re-election of Senator Clark to the state legislature, aiding him in engineering the prohibition law through the senate and house. Fremont being a border county, had the reputation of being a tough place, and “rum-ruled.” By vigorous personal effort, Mr. Holmes assisted in changing public sentiment, in banishing the saloons from the county and making Hamburg one of the most temperate and law-abiding, educated and patriotic cities in Iowa. Becoming an active prohibitionist, he was honored in 1896, by the nomination for judge of the supreme court, and in 1897 was nominated for representative from Fremont county, and at the prohibition state convention in [p.187] 1898, he received the nomination for attorney-general. Mr. Holmes is imbued with the true spirit of the reformer and has always led in educational, moral and temperance reform. Ridicule and threats have no influence with him.

When a young man he was a Congregationalist, but in recent years united with the Presbyterian church. He is a ruling elder in the church to which he belongs. He assisted in organizing and superintending the first permanent Sunday school in Hamburg, and has been an active officer and teacher ever since. He has several times been a member of the board of education and for fifteen years a trustee of Tabor college.

He was married in August, 1864, to Sarah B. Hewitt. They have six children, Abraham Lincoln, William Thomas, Mary Elizabeth, now the wife of Rev. Evore Evans, Jesse George, Samuel Arthur and Sarah Marcia.

Mr. Holmes is a liberal man and no advanced course for human good has ever appealed in vain to him. He has the loving regard of all his fellow citizens. In a comfortable home, his children a credit to him, a handsome competence for his old age, he is enjoying the results of a life well spent in the service of the Master and his fellow-men.

ALEXANDER CAMERON, EDUCATOR FOR 35 YEARS IN SEATTLE SCHOOLS 

 Obituary: Alexander D. Cameron was a promising young football player on
 the Minnesota Iron Range in the 1920s. The dean at Hibbing Junior College
 suggested he might want to head out West, to play for the team at the University
 of Washington.
 So Mr. Cameron and two friends piled into a Model T in 1928, embarking on 
an adventure that consumed eight days, 109 gallons of gasoline and 22 quarts of
 oil. 
 Once Mr. Cameron arrived in Washington, he stayed, spending 35 years as a 
 teacher, counselor, vice principal and principal in the Seattle schools.
 Mr. Cameron died Sunday (Dec. 12). He was 87.
 His memorial service yesterday featured a bagpipe, champagne and readings 
 from Mr. Cameron's memoirs. "He wanted a blowout," said his daughter, Anne
 Schoedel.
 Mr. Cameron was born in Scotland, but emigrated with his family when he was
 1 1/2. They were bound for British Columbia but never got past the Iron Range
 in northern Minnesota.
 Mr. Cameron's father was a railroad worker, and the family lived in isolated
 places. Schoedel said her father remembered being chased by wolves as he
 pumped a railroad handcart down the tracks. He excelled in football, hockey and track.
 While football brought Mr. Cameron to Seattle, he played for the Huskies only briefly.
 He graduated from the University of Washington in 1931, taking his first
 teaching job at the state School for the Blind in Vancouver.
 He and another teacher, Hazel Mort, married the following year.
 Mr. Cameron returned to Seattle for graduate work and began teaching in the
 Seattle in 1936 at B.F. Day, then a pre-vocational school. He received his
 master's degree from the University of Washington in 1938.
 Mr. Cameron taught science at John Marshall Junior High for 14 years and
 served as a counselor at Hamilton Junior High for three more before entering
 administration as vice principal at James Monroe Junior High in 1955.
 In his memoirs, Mr. Cameron wrote of paddling the posteriors of several
 particularly troublesome boys at Monroe with a tennis shoe to keep them in line. When
 he left the school, the faculty presented him with a tennis shoe mounted in a
 shadow box "for services rendered."
 Mr. Cameron became principal at Blaine Junior High in 1959, moving to
 a similar position at Denny Junior High in 1961. He spent the final nine years of his
 career as principal at Eckstein, then the largest junior high school in the state,
 before retiring in 1971.
 Aurlo Bonney, a fellow junior-high principal, said Mr. Cameron "came through
 as a quiet person, and yet he was pretty slick with a joke. He wore well."
 Mr. Cameron believed in "keeping the whole operation under control, so students
 could learn and teachers could teach," Bonney said.
 After his first wife died, Mr. Cameron married Lucile "Bonnie" Dewey in 1971.
 They traveled extensively after he retired, visiting England and Scotland, where
 Mr. Cameron had many relatives.
 He also enjoyed golf, fishing and bowling.
 Survivors include his widow, of Seattle; a brother, David Cameron of Gibsonia, Pa.;
 a son, Alexander "Sandy" Cameron, Jr., of Federal Way; a daughter, Anne
 Schoedel of Valleyford, Spokane County; and four grandchildren.
 The family suggests remembrances to the Children's Hospital Foundation or
 the Kenney Home.

Obituary of Bishop John Mort The first Bishop of Northern Nigeria 
August 05, 1997 The Daily Telegraph London  Page: 19 

 Obituary: THE RIGHT REVEREND JOHN MORT, who has died aged 82, was for
 17 years Bishop of Northern Nigeria and afterwards Assistant Bishop in
 the Leicester Diocese for 16 years.
 Mort went out to the newly created Diocese of Northern Nigeria as its first Bishop
 in 1952. He was only 37, and his jurisdiction extended over an area of some
 250,000 square miles. The population of 30 million was almost entirely Muslim
 or pagan. 
 Under Mort's leadership, significant Christian progress was made, and by the 
 mid-1960s there were 17 mission stations with upwards of 30 churches and a
 leprosy settlement. However, the Nigerian civil war had a devastating effect
 on the North, and from 1966 many Christians migrated to the South and East for
 safety.
 In 1972, not long after Mort had returned from West Africa, the then Bishop of 
 Leicester, Ronald Williams, engaged him as his Assistant Bishop - Leicester
 being one of the few English dioceses without a Suffragan.
 Mort became not only a highly effective pastoral bishop in the parishes, but
 was universally liked throughout the county. He had a remarkable memory for names
 and places; churchwardens would be astonished to be asked about the progress of
 their children in particular schools.
 John Ernest Llewelyn Mort, the son of a mining engineer, was born in South Wales
 on April 13 1915. From Malvern he went up to St Catharine's College,
 Cambridge, where he read History, and then to Westcott House to prepare for Holy
 Orders.
 From 1940 to 1944, Mort was curate at Dudley St Thomas, Worcestershire, where
 he received a rigorous training. His ability as a preacher may have owed
 something to the memory of an occasion when, just hitting his stride in the pulpit
 at Dudley, he was interrupted by the vicar with: "Is there much more of this?"
 He next spent four years as the Worcester Diocesan youth organiser, and another four
 as Vicar of the parish of St John the Baptist, Worcester.
 Throughout this time he served also as Private Chaplain to the Bishop of Worcester,
 Dr William Wilson Cash, who had previously been General Secretary of the
 Church Missionary Society.
 Bishop Cash observed that his young chaplain had vision and a gift for turning people
 to faith through pastoral friendship, and on the strength of this he
 recommended Mort for appointment to the new missionary Diocese of Northern Nigeria.
 The appointment involved travelling great distances to the mission stations, and Mort
 was often accompanied by his wife Barbara, who played a full-time part in
 the Church's work, and eventually became head of Capital School, Kaduna,
 pioneering the co-education of Nigerians and expatriate children.
 A training centre for lay evangelists was established at Wusasa Zana, and a
 bishop's house was built at
 Kaduna. Mort's efforts were recognised by his appointment as CBE in 1965
 and by the award of an honorary LLD by Ahmadu Bello University when he left in
 1970.
 As Assistant Bishop in Leicester, Mort was provided with a base and an 
 income by his appointment as a Canon Residentiary of Leicester Cathedral,
 a post he  held from 1970 to 1988. Although his ministry was mainly in the diocese,
 he was assiduous in performing his cathedral duties, as Treasurer and as the pastoral
 friend of the congregation.
 Of a broadly conservative disposition, Mort had during his time in Nigeria 
 strongly opposed a scheme for uniting the Anglican, Methodist and Presbyterian
 churches there. He was unhappy about the Church of England's decision to 
 ordain women.
 Towards the end of his life Mort suffered from severe arthritis, but he continued to
 assist in his local parish church at Woodhouse Eaves.
 He is survived by his wife.

 Recollections of Pioneer Days
 George and Nancy Openshaw
 Weber County

 Nancy Ingham was born in this little place on January 23, 1821, and she
followed the popular occupation of the day. One
 can easily imagine that it was in the great mill where she worked that she
became acquainted with George Openshaw who
 was also a weaver and lived in the nearby small village of Heap where
George was born Aug. 15, 1817. They were
 married in 1845, probably in the Church of England, for Nancy was a Sunday
School teacher in that faith and also sang in
 the choir. They must have heard the gospel from the missionaries soon
afterward as George was baptized by Brother
 George Mort on October 7, 1848. —Edith Smith Truman

Dear Mr. Gradeless, 
I'm researching Roy A. Mort, who was born in Ohio on  7-28-1889, and died
in Glendale, California on 1-12-75.  I see that he is listed in the Mort
Family as record number 1920.  I am restoring a home that Mr. Mort and his
wife (Laurel M. Goodwin Mort) built in Glendale, California in 1925.  It is
a very interesting "castle" style home, and was nominated as a Glendale
historical landmark.  The Glendale Historical Society and I would like to
find out as much as we can about the original owners and their family.  I
have learned that Mr. Mort was the son of William Arthur Mort, born around
1870.  The family lived in the Lima, Ohio area.  Roy and Laurel Mort had no
children, which makes it rather difficult to find any information.  I have
been able to locate a great-niece of Mrs. Mort, but no living relatives of
Mr. Mort.  Any information that you can provide on Mr. Mort would be
greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your help.
Sincerely, Jim Meehan E-mail:  kagelcanyon@worldnet.att.net

Betty Mort Mumper - buried at the newest Blain Cemetery (don't know if this
has a particular name) 1923-1994
Betty died of cancer - if you are tracking any type of medical information,
not sure what kind though. Her husband Benjamin's name is also on the stone
with a birthdate of 1918. He still lives in New Germantown. It is real
interesting that in their later lives these people were weavers. I have a rug
I use at Christmas time that they made. Ben researched on this trade and has
these looms (some very large) in a building on their property.
My mother and I had various conversations about Catharine Mort Yohn. Catharine
attended many of our family gatherings. Only now do I realize she was a cousin
to my grandmother. The George I told you about was probably a boyfriend but in
those days you didn't proclaim that you lived with somebody. Catharine's
husband had to be still living but I never remember seeing him. George's last
name was either Berkepile or Berkebile. I was given some old photos that I
brought home to scan and return. One of them has Catharine on it. If you are
interested I can scan it and send a copy. That cemetery in Blain was full of
names I knew or have heard. Kind of like old home week. I had hoped to do more
research but spent all my time with the folks. Maybe next trip. If I can think
of anything else I will be in touch. Mom and I talked about so many things.
Beverly 
Simon Sylvester Mort and wife Matilda Jane were also buried in this same
cemetery.

Bill & Donald,
Finished travelling for a while so I plan to include your info and
contact Emails in a revised MORT page in the next few days.
The person who related the 3 brothers in Glamorgan tale was Geoff N Lee,
8 Eton Street, Barry, South Glamorgan, CF6 8PH, Wales if you would like
to follow up. I don't believe he knew much more than the story. I have
absolutely no idea why the name should change from MORDECAI unless it
was a coincidence and no relation to early MORT names. Could be red
herring of massive proportions unless we find the root of the tale.
I did contact a Mrs L V Gallenti at 36 Old Kurrajong Road, Richmond, NSW
2753 in Australia a year ago but got no reply. She was looking for
MORDECAI in Glamorgan around 1850.
Let's keep in touch in case any of us get a clue or two. This Email
below preferred. I'm slowly updating my WebPages........

     To:  "Donald E. Gradeless" <DrG@execpc.com>

Thank you for providing so much information on Roy A. Mort and his family. 
You certainly have an impressive site on the Mort family history, and you
have obviously done a tremendous amount of research in order to document
the family through so many generations.  I apologize for having taken so
long to respond, but I have limited computer access (I don't have my own
computer yet), and I'm afraid I haven't been able to gather much
information on Roy Mort since I first sent you a query.

I was informed by relatives of Laurel Mort, Roy Mort's second wife, that
Roy and Laurel Mort had no children, but they did not indicate that he had
a previous marriage and a son from that marriage.  After learning from you
that Roy Mort had living relatives, grandsons Don Jr. and Bill, I tried to
contact both without success.  However, I was able to locate the widow of
their father, Don Mort, Sr.  Mrs. Mort told me that Don Sr. was raised by
his mother and her second husband, Oren Long, and that there was little or
no contact between Roy Mort and his son Don after Roy was divorced from
Nellie Jones.  In fact, she believes that Don only saw his father once, and
I'm not sure if that was after Roy moved to California and married Laurel
Goodwin.  Mrs. Mort recalls being told that Roy Mort drove a beer delivery
truck in St. Louis in his early years.  You probably know all of this,
since you were in contact with Don Sr. prior to his death in 1990.  

The only other source of information that I have on Roy Mort is the death
certificate filed with real estate documents.  The death certificate
indicates an initial "A" for his middle name, which you believe to be
Arthur.  Oddly, it lists his birth date as 7/28/1889, while Social Security
records (and the Mort family site) give a birth year of 1891.  Roy's father
is identified as William Arthur Mort, but his mother's identity is listed
as "unknown".  The information on the certificate was provided by Laurel
Mort, who was reportedly in ill health at the time. 

According to his death certificate, Roy was a resident of Los Angeles
County for 43 years and was employed by Sherwin-Williams Paints for 20
years as a paint salesman.  This conflicts with the story I was told by the
sellers of his home and the relatives of Laurel Mort, who indicated that
Roy and Laurel Mort built the stone home, originally named "Greystone
Manor", in 1925.  Although building permit records do confirm that the home
was built in 1925, the death certificate states that Roy did not reside
here until 1932.  Also, real estate records show a transfer of ownership to
Roy and Laurel Mort in 1936.  I have been researching Roy Mort to try to
resolve the mystery of who built the home and whether the Morts were the
original owners.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate public
records confirming the architect and original owner.

"Greystone Manor", renamed "Stoneridge Castle" by the second owners in
1978, is of Spanish Mission Revival style, and has an impressive stone
facade that gives the impression of a gothic castle.  The home has many
distinctive features, such as original stained glass, hidden safes,
interior flower trays that pull out from panels under the windows, high
ceilings, and rooms with unusual shapes and dimensions.  According to the
previous owners, who purchased the house from Laurel Mort's relatives in 
1978, "Greystone Manor" was used as a movie location in the 1930's and was
featured in Architectural Digest.  The house is listed in a popular book on
significant architecture in Southern California, and was nominated by the
Glendale Historical Society for status as a local landmark.  I am in the
process of restoring the home to its original condition, including the
original wooden plaque proclaiming it "Greystone Manor".  It is truly a
labor of love!

Getting back to Roy Mort, I was told by the previous owners that Roy was a
liquor salesman, which would appear to be incorrect unless this preceded
his position as a paint salesman.  They also told me that he loved birds
and kept a large parakeet aviary on the property next door to his home.  I
have found evidence of what appears to be an old intercom system that was
connected to the aviary, and relatives of Laurel Mort confirmed that Roy
Mort did indeed raise parakeets.  The vacant lot also contained a
caretaker's cottage, which was torn down about 10 years ago.  The remnants
of a plumbing system to the cottage still exist on my property, but a new
home has been built on the lot next door.

I have been told that Roy Mort loved this home dearly, and maintained the
property while caring for his wife when she was ill in later years. 
Although he was well into his eighties, he was able to scale the 46 steps
from the street entrance to the front door, which is no easy task with a
handful of groceries!  After Roy passed away in 1975, Mrs. Mort stayed in
the house for about a year, but her health failed and she was moved to a
rest home where she spent the last year or two of her life.   The previous
owners told me that before they purchased the home, Roy Mort's cremated
ashes were kept in an urn on a ledge by the front picture window.  When
Mrs. Mort passed away in 1977, she and her late husband were laid to rest
in a Glendale cemetery.   I am not aware of the name of the cemetery where
they are buried, but I do know that they are not buried in Glendale Forest
Lawn Cemetery.  I have been unable to locate obituaries on either Roy or
Laurel Mort in local newspapers.

This is about all that I have been able to learn about Roy and Laurel Mort,
and I do hope this information is of some use to you.  Again, I appreciate
the extensive history you provided, which I found very interesting.  

Sincerely, Jim Meehan

Copied from a microfilm at the Mormon Library:
The Newark Advocate-Tuesday, February 5, 1924
Mrs. James Mort

C. H. Mort, 25 Buena Vista Street received word of the death of his mother of Spencer, West Virginia which occurred Monday night. Mr. and Mrs. Mort formerly livedin this city where Mr. Mort was employed by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in capacity of conductor. They made their home in West Virginia for 20 years. Mrs. Mort is survived by her husband, 2 sons, Charles H. of this city; John of Tulsa, Oklahoma and daughterr Mrs. Anna Riggs of Ashtabula, Ohio. The body will arrive here Wednesday and will be taken to the home of her son on North Buena Vista Street and funeral services will be on Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Burial will be made in Cedar Hill Cem."
-----
Notice from the obituary there are two sons. One is Charles, my Grandfather, and the other is John from Tulsa. Your information has the other son as Andrew Hisson Mort. I had sent some information awhile ago about who I thought Andrew Hisson Mort was.

When Clarinda's (the obituary above) father was killed, her mother married a man named Joab Hissem (Hisson). They had only one child named Andrew "Bud" Hissem who never married. This was Clarinda's 1/2 brother. I think he showed up in the 1900 census as living with her family since his Parents were dead and he had no other family.

I am still trying to find anyone related to the John from Tulas, Charles's brother. I have not had any luck. You do have John Mort (RN=6446) pension information in your 1997 research.

I hope this information helps to clear some things up. Linda Mort Zahm


Thank you for the information on Isabelle Mort. The date of birth matches my record for Isabella Fynes, born in Northumberland, England in 1865. I have learned a lot about the Mort families by reading through your most impressive Mort web page. However, it is not clear to me if any of the contributors are descendants of the line that includes John and Isabella Mort. Do you have any information about the families of the children of Isabella and James Mort? It would be great if I could make contact with any surviving relatives. I would also be interested to learn about the previous generations of Morts who were the ancestors of John M Mort.

As promised I attach information on the parents of Isabella Fynes. This includes a couple extracts from a document that I have written which summarises the origins of my family line. The attachment is a Word document that has been zipped using WINZIP and uuencoded using XferPro as I am unable to send binary files from my Compuserve account to an Internet based e-mail system. If you have any difficulty decoding the document, or do not have access to Microsoft Word, please let me know and I will send it to you from my work's computer in whatever format you require. I could also send you a GEDCOM file with all of the known Fynes family connections if you were interested.

Just for the record, the information on Isabella can be summarised as follows:

Isabella (Fynes) Mort Born: Hazelrigg, Northumberland, England - 28 Oct 1865 or 28 Nov 1865 (Dual registration of birth) Mother: Barbara Jane Fynes nee Reay; born 12 Oct 1839/40, Died 27 Jul 1882 in railroad accident in E Palestine, Colombiana County, OH. Father: Isaac Fynes - Coal Miner; born 1842, Died 9 Dec 1895 in Salem, Columbiana County, OH Marriage Date: 29 Feb 1864 in Tynemouth, Northumberland, England

Other Children of Isaac and Barbara Jane Fynes

John Ray Fynes Born 5 Dec 1863 in Tynemouth, Northumberland, England James Fynes Born 30 May 1867 in Hazelrigg, Northumberland, England Ann Fynes Born 22 June 1869 in Hazelrigg, Northumberland, England Anna Fynes Born 28 July 1873 in Pennsylvania, US Mary Ann Fynes Born Aug 1877 in Pennsylvania, US Unnamed Fynes Stillborn 1 Oct 1881 in E Palestine, Columbiana County, OH

Thank you once again for the information, and I look forward to hearing from you. Geoff Fynes


[Danger - Names and dates shown here from undocumented sources and appear to contain errors as to dates and names from what is documented. It is being placed here for reference only. Documentation is needed on this family line. Do you have any? DEG]

Thank you very much for the information on the Mort Family.

From the dates I've collected, the information you sent me on the Mort family is what I was looking for. Abraham S. Mort could very possibly be my great- great grandfather and his daughter, Sarah E. (RN=6364), was my great grandmother.

Anyway, my younger sister, found some information on the Mort family. According to her findings Abraham was born 9/16/1801 and died before 1880. With these dates, he must have been from an earlier generation. Abraham's parents were Mathias Mort and Elizabeth Bauer. They had 12 children: John, Anna Maria, Henry, Catherin, Elizabeth V, Sarah Ann, Mary Ellen, Sophia, Jeremiah, Mahaha, Eliza, and William David. Some names are the same as per your information. The selection of names must have been scarse back then.

Once again, THANK YOU. If I can help you in any way, please let me know.

Sincerely, Jean Shafer, Middletown, MD 21769


I was amazed when I found this web page. A lot of work I'm sure. Their has been a new addition to my family since I last talked to you. My daughter was born 5-18-96 her name is Jacklyn Danielle Mort [RN=7092] born in Leesburg, FL. I still haven't heard anything about the illness that effects the Morts from Lima, Ohio. All I know is life expectancy seems to be around the age of 50. Thank you so much for all your hard work you've done to help me and many others. Randy Mort, Umatilla, FL 32784

The last four or five generations of men in my family only lived to be in their late forties or early fiftys. After my dad's death I found out it is a hereditary heart disease called "Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy". My older brother Todd Mort, tested fine but it turns out I have it. My younger brother and sister have not been tested. I know all of my grandfather's cousins in the Lima area, died young with heart problems. Randy Mort, Umatilla, FL 32784


Yesterday I recieved two Obituaries one on Dewey Mort and the onter on Maggie Groves, Deweys sister.Some interesting but confusing things came up and I was wondering what you thought.

Dewey died July, 1969. His address is 225 West Offutt Street, Cumberland, MD. Maggie died June 1976 and the obituary states the same address. This is the same address on my grandfathers application for SS. The obituatry states their parents as Jacob and Anise (Price) Mort.

According to Maggie's obituary, (Cumberland Evening Times) June 24th 1976 she was born in Warfordsburg PA, but I have the West Virginia census and birth record stating she was born in West VA. She was the the widow of Martin VanBuren Groves. She was survived by her son, Charles H. T. Groves of Cumberland. He was probably the child listed with her on the 1920 census. And she was survived by her sister, Mrs. Arbutus Lloyd of Baltimore (probably Vina), 8 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren.

According to Dewey's obituary, (same paper, July 16 1969): He was a native of Cumberland. But also I have his delayed birth certificate from West Virginia. He was survived by a son, Dewey of Baltimore and 2 daughters, Vina Huff and Wanda Coalson of Walkertown NC and his sisters, Maggie and Mrs. Arbutus Lloyd of Baltimore.

The really WEIRD thing is, on BOTH obituaries it lists that they are survived by their brother Leonard Mort of Chicago. But Leonard died in 1968 a year before Dewey. The only thing I can think of is if Leonard died and they had lost track of him and didn't know that he died. Or I am on the completely wrong track. . Do you have any information on a Leonard Mort in the Chicago area in the 1960's.

I am very interested in tracing my relatives. Sorry for the lengthy letter, Hope to hear from you soon. It has been at least 100 evey day we could use a little cool weather from up north. Please send some. Katie West


A while back you requested any obituaries I might run across on the Morts family. Below are the obits on Isreal Keim Morts (RN 5522) and Mary Elizabeth Kingsbrough (RN 5523). Please note that I have located her in 1850 Penn. census with her parents and the last name is spelled KINGSBURY.. I have also located the marriage record and the name is also spelled KINGSBURY... and in Ike's obit it also says he married Mary E KINGSBURY... so I have changed my records to reflect this spelling... Where did you get the Kingsbrough spelling??? I will forward info as I run on it...Thanks Becki Verser Larson (RN 6919)

Callaway Weekly Gazette 5/28/1891

I. K. MORTS

Last Monday Evening He Went Into the Back of His Shoe Shop and Shot Himself Through the Heart With a Shotgun.

I. K. Morts is a well-known shoemaker who had his shop in the basement of the Palace Hotel just opposite the Gazette office. Monday evening a few minutes before 6 o'clock while we were closing up for the day to go to supper, your reporter heard a report like a gun, but after a second thought concluded it was a noise made by a board falling in the Barnes' lumber yard and went on up the street. When near the post office we were overtaken by a man who said I. K. Morts had shot himself and was lying in his shop dead. When your reporter arrived only four or five men were in the home.

How He Did It.

He was lying on his back with an old single barrel shot gun in front of him and a lath near his right hand. He had evidently gone into the back room of his shop, sat down on the floor, took the gun, placed the breech against wall, held the muzzle against his left breast with his left hand and pushed the trigger of the gun with the lath in his right hand. The end of the lath was trimmed so as to hit the trigger without interfering with the guard. He was fearfully powder burned and his clothing was considerably scorched. The wound just over the heart was an ugly one and probably produced almost instantaneous death. Mr. Schloser, who had left a pair of shoes to be mended and called to get them was the first one to discover the suicide. He saw no one in the front room and naturally took a look into the back room and saw deceased lying dead. Mr. Reynolds called after five o'clock to have a pair of shoes mended. Morts told Reynolds that could not do it, that he never expected to drive another peg.
He was very despondent at times and talked of his infirmities very freely. He complained of paralysis and said no medical skill could afford him any relief - that he suffered very much from this trouble and that it was only a question of time that it would cause his death. Lately he told a couple of friends that he had gone into the woods to kill himself but changed his mind after he got out there. He was undoubtedly contemplated the act for some time.

A Sketch of His Life.

He was a native of Juniata Co., PA, 51 years old, came to Fulton in 1870 and in 1871 married Miss Mary E Kingsbury. His family consists of her and six children - five boys and one girl. Three of his children are dead. His family will get $2,000 from the A.O.U.W. organization.
He was crippled from white swelling when a boy which necessitated the use of a kind of stirrup crutch in walking. He had many faults, was somewhat uncouth and rough, but, nevertheless, he had some good qualities among which was his great efficiency at a fire. Although a cripple, he could excel and man in Fulton in climbing around on the roof of a house to fight a fire. He was always on hand and worked from beginning to finish.

Suicide in Fulton

At about 5:50 0'clock last Monday evening Ike K Morts ended his earthly career by shooting himself with a single barrel muzzle-loading shot-gun. He evidently placed the muzzle of the gun againist his breast, near the left nipple and threw the trigger with a curtain stick, which he had trimmed and notched for the purpose. The indications were that death was instantaneous.
He had been low spirited for more than 2 years. He leaves a wife and 7 children. He had a $2,000 policy in the A.O.U.W. to his wife as trustee for herself and the Children's benefit. He was buried by that organization Tuesday evening in the Old Cemetery.

I was wondering if you have come across any Morts from England, the Manchester area specifically. My parents, Kenneth and Jacqueline Mort were married in England in 1956 and immigrated to the U.S. (via Canada) shortly thereafter. Both of my parents are only children and all of their parents are deceased. My dad was born in Atherton and later lived in Leigh (I think). I'd love to find out if any of my relatives have settled in the U.S. Do you have any information for me? Sincerely, Lynn Mort-Wetherwax, Thousand Oaks, CA



We found the gravesites of Abraham S. and Ann Maria Mort at the Maple Grove Cemetery near Mt. Davis in Somerset Co, PA. Abraham's tombstone was very brief - Abraham Mort 1901. Three letters were written on the top of the stone J.M.F. Do you know what those letters stand for? I don't. Ann Maria was written on the top of the other tombstone and on the front was this inscription: Wife of A.S. Mort Died Sept. 18, 1895 Aged 56 ys, 11 ms & 27 days. Just a very brief account of how I fit in this line: Me- Jean Shafer, daughter of Bertha Colflesh, daughter of Grace Ringer, daughter of Sarah Ellen Mort, daughter of Abraham and Ann Maria Mort.

The Abraham S. Mort Family
by EILEEN MORT

Abraham S. Mort was a French Canadian who came to the Casselman Valley area with a crew of lumbermen sometime in the early 1800's. As was the custom, this company settled on a tract of virgin timber, near a stream of water and created its own community . (In 1884 this particular area was named Boynton. Pa.)

After the land was cleared, a large steam-powered sawmill was set up. A barn for the horses and a hoarding house, plus several “out-houses”', soon completed this establishment. One lumberman's wife became coot. housekeeper and dispenser of first aid to injured workers. Living and working together, the group formed one big rowdy family.

Young woodsman Abraham lived this way as long as he remained a bachelor.. but a young lady, Ann Maria Miller. entered his life before long. She was horn in 1839. (So far, I have been unable to find any record of her parents but she did have a brother. Jeremiah.) These two were married and went to housekeeping in a house built by Abraham. The mill had been moved farther south on the Casselman River. therefore a homesite was selected to be closer to his work. This Mort homestead was situated south of the Elijah Livengood Farm on the Cast side of the river. (Today, the foundation stones can still be seen. even from the west side of the river; the bridge is gone at this particular point. but by standing there, one can envision how it looked long ago. Some apple trees of a perhaps once well-tended orchard still remain.)

Abraham’s Family

Abraham’s first child, Nancy, was born here and in 1862 another girl, Sara Ellen. was born. On October 22, 1864 a son arrived who was named Andrew Jackson but through the years used the name John. Of course. his nickname became Jack Two more boys, William and Jeremiah,. completed the first half of the Mort family.

During this time, Rumbaugh and Stoner Lumber Company took over the mill and were cutting timber as far south as the Sim Loechel place. A railroad spur had been built and it was Abraham's job to run the dinghy. loaded with lumber. from the sawmill to a railroad junction near the "Yellow House", a tavern north of Salisbury on the old road near where the Harry Kretchman home is located. there the lumber was loaded on railroad cars for shipment to parts unknown.

In the year 1886, the Mort family moved away from their river home (probably the mill had moved on) and settled near Springs, Pa., on the farm where Harvey Bender now lives. Their sixth child, Mary Ann, was born here in 1867, followed by Susann, Elizabeth, Martha and Abraham II, completing the family circle of ten children.

Their Church Life

Among Elmer Bittinger's treasures of yesterday, I found an original copy of the Sunday School register for the Folk Mennonite Church, dated 1882 on which are listed five pupils from the Mort family. John, age 18 at that time, was in the male class taught by Jonas Keim. Mary was in a class taught by Carrie Blough and Lizzie's teacher was Katy Folk. The infant class, taught by Jacob Folk, lists William and Jerry.

Evidently Ann Maria's family were members of the Brethren Church at Salisbury or the River Bridge Church. (This was first the German Baptist Church — "Rever Brick Kahrich”— the junction of Ord Street and the St. Paul Road. Mennonites and Church of the Brethren who owned the building conjointly worshipped there and it was used by other groups.) Abraham also became a member of the Brethren church soon after his marriage. The baptismal records were lost, but years later when a survey was made, separating the territory and assigning members on one side of a line to the church at Salisbury and members on the other side to Maple Glen. Abraham and Ann Maria's church letter transferred them to Maple Glen or the Peck Church.

Childhood Escapades

The family's mode of transportation was horse and buggy, horse-back riding or walking-but mostly walking — whether it was to attend church, school or to make a trip to town. John got in a bit of trouble one day soon after they moved to their first mountain home. He was walking alone when he came across a tiny spotted animal, barely able to stand. He had never seen an animal like this before and since it seemed to be lost, the boy decided to make friends. The animal showed no fear. so John cradled his prize in his arms, and gently carried it home, making big plans about how he would love and care for his newfound pet. At home, he received a lecture on the dangers involved in picking up any strange animal and orders to return the fawn to the exact spot where he had found it. Later on when they checked on it, the fawn was gone so evidently the mother deer had taken it to the deep woods.

Another time, as John and his sister Mary Ann walked together an on errand to Salisbury, they passed several houses, and at one particular house a pretty little dog came out to bark at them. The bark was friendly, so they were convinced he would be a fine pet. On the return trip, these two talked over the situation and decided if there was no one around when they reached the friendly dog, they would encourage him to follow them home. The dog was friendly enough but didn't seem interested in following, so John picked him up, tucked him inside his coat and headed towards home. After the house was out of sight, the dog tagged merrily along, showing no interest in retracing his steps; each time they heard a horse approaching, the dog was tucked back inside John's coat. The three of them made it home all right, but they never anticipated the reception they received! Both of them got the hardest spanking of their lives from their father, but worst of all was the humiliating experience of being escorted back to the scene of the crime, Fall and Winter 5 where they made their apologies. This story was often told by Mary Ann.

When the Whites Creek Lumber Company started to cut timber in the Whites Creek area, the Mort family moved to Addison Township where a village was established. The houses had been built along the road from the Maple Glen Church south, to where it joined old Route 40 west of Grantsville, Md. Theirs was the property nearest the Mason-Dixon line; the neighbors were Folks, Slaubaughs, Dursts and Ringers.

By this time, the older children had married and begun families of their own. Sara Ellen married Elisha Ringer and purchased the farm next to her parents. John married Emma Thomas and after her death, Mary McCloskey; they lived on the Casselman River and the McCloskey place. Will married Mintie Grime (or Grimm) and settled near Somerset. Jerry married Lizzie Durst and Mary Ann married Henry Butler; both these families lived on the Maryland side of their home community. Elizabeth and Sam Slaubaugh 'sere married in 1893 and at the same time joined the church at Maple Glen-he by church letter and she by baptism. They too lived near her parents. Nancy and her husband, Will King, settled farther away, at Cleveland City or Casselman. as it is known today.

A Tragedy in the Mort Family

Young Abe. the baby of the family. worked first on neighborhood farms, then went to live with the Will King familv. He worked during the summer as a water boy for a crew buildmg the Jenninga Railroad: in the winter there were chores to do. So his sister Nancy kepr him busy. Bck of the house there was an open mine where they dug coal for their own use. One day Abe was digging there, and when the mailman came by from Grantsville, he heard calls for help. On investigation he found the young man caught beneath a slide of heavy rock; he ran to the KIng house for help but on their return they found another slide had come down, crushing Abe to death. Two daughters also died young; Susan at seventeen and Martha when she was eleven.

Ann Maria was a jolly. heavy-set lady who loved her own children and also those who came later. She made a home for Emma (daughter of John and Emma) after her mother died. Her garden was her pride and joy; surviving grandchildren remember how she named the vegetables--alwavs in German. They don't recall seeing her read--possibly she never learned to read English. She suffered from heart dropsy and died in 1895 at age 56.

Abraham, short of stature but wiry and ambitious, passed these same traits on to his descendants. After years of sawmilling, he finally found work that was easier when he carried the mail from Grantsville to Accident, Md. He must have traveled by horseback, because he stayed overnight at Smith's Boardinghouse in Accident and returned to Grantsville the next day. One morning in 1901, he failed to appear for breakfast, and upon investigation, Mr. Smith found him dead in bed Abraham, Ann Maria. their daughter Lizzie. and Verdella Slaubaugh are buried in the Maple Glen Cemetery.

1. Nancy married Will King--11 children: Ida Grudders Williams, Anna Schoonmaker, Davis, Mary Root, Sam, Cal. George. Fanny Zimmerman, Clara Sterner. Ruth, Nancy Engle Sherrow

My Memories of Grandpa & Grandma Ringer
by Helen Eichorn Davis

I remember Grandpa as a tall slender man with white hair and beard. He was always busy doing his field and barn work and Grandma was busy in the house with cooking and baking. We frequently visited Grand- ma's house on Sunday and she would have cake for us. She never used a recipe, but just put her ingredients together and it turned out to be a very good cake. My Aunt Olive never married and she helped in the house and garden. I went with her to gather eggs, do the milking and turn the separator, watching how the milk and cream came out into separate buckets.

The Ringer name is German and means "One whose business it was to ring a church or town bell at stated times." Grandfather, Elisha J. Ringer, was born December 1, 1856, died Sept.27, 1943. Grandma, Sarah Ellen Mort, was born Aug. 27, 1862, died June 1, 1941. They were married Jan. 1, 1881 and were blessed with eight children:

  • Anna Rebecca, 1883-1903.

  • Lucinda, 1886-1953, married William Butler, had five children.

  • Howard, 1887-1943, married Eva Griffith, had three children.

  • Ferris, 1888-1971, married Edna Pearl Shumaker, had twelve children.

  • Olive, 1891-1972.

  • Hattie Pearl (my mother), 1895-1964, married Irvin Eichorn, had two children.

  • Grace, 1897-1959, married Harry Colfiesh, had six children.

  • Bertha, 1901- married Omer Cooley, had two adopted daughters. My only aunt and uncle still living, they have made their home in Connellsville where Uncle Omer has retired from the B & 0 Railroad.

    After Grandma and Grandpa passed away the farm was sold to my parents around 1945 and in 1973 we sold the farm to the Keystone Lime Company of Springs. My aunt Olive made her home with Aunt Bertha in Connellsville.

    As I think back over the fourteen years that I have memories of them, I am thankful that I was a little girl that went to see Grandpa and Grandma about every Sunday and sit on their laps. In the summer Grandma had the front porch banister filled with blooming flowers - a picture that I will always remember.

    The only other Mort buried in the Mattawana Cemetery, which is located just outside the town ( by 100 yds) of McVeytown, is my father William T. Mort (RN=2951). That is excepting the Thomas J. Mort (RN=851) family. I have a picture of the stone. It reads: Thomas J. Mort 1824-1909 Nancy S. his wife 1836-1920. On the back of the stone is the following: Wilder Mort 1878-1894 Lewis Mort 1873-1895. From personal research, I have found out that Nancy's maiden name was Rager.
