101 James, John, and Miles were three Morgan brothers who arrived in America together; that much is fairly well-accepted. However, there is very little evidence that their father was WilliamMorgan, and even less that their mother was Elizabeth Morgan, daughter of Sir William Morgan and Elizabeth Winter. Granted, there isn't much evidence against the connection, but virtually noprimary evidence supporting it, either. Morgan, James (I2039)
 
102 John bought land from his brother Samuel in Colchester, Connecticut in 1746, and apparently moved there straight away. His home appears to have been located in a neighborhood known as Bull Hill, close to what is now known as East Hampton. John acquired additional lands in Colchester, Middletown, and Chatham. The home stood at a corner of the now abandoned road that led from New London to New Haven and Hartford, and he kept a tavern and general store there.
Up to the day of his death, John kept himself busy about his barn. On the final day, feeling a bit ill, he returned to the house and asked for a warm drink. Before it could be prepared,he had expired in his chair.
On his stone is engraved "Sacred to the memory of Mr. John Isham who died March 2nd A.D. 1802 in YE 81st. year of his Age Make Jesus Christ your Friend". 
Isham, John (I851)
 
103 John was a landowner and one of the thirty nine original settlers of Norwich, Connecticut. He was the first County Clerk and Schoolmaster there. He is also said to have owned property inLebanon, Franklin, and Bean Hill, Connecticut. By the many documents he signed while Clerk, he fixed the present spelling of the family name. (See Burpee's Story of Connecticut). He was a Deputy to the General Court of Connecticut from Norwich in October, 1691. His autograph can be found in Caulkin's History of Norwich.
He was one of the four original proprietors the five miles tract purchased from Owaneco the Indian in 1692, and moved there about 1698.
Can anyone imagine the pain and anguish John and his wife must have endured? Out of thirteen children, six died under the age of five, including the first five children the couple bore.

111 Moved to Windham, CT in 1700 from Beverly and Wenham, MA. Roberts, in Genealogies of Connecticut Families, says: "It is said that many curious incidents occurred in the life of this man,making it quite romantic. He was a person of great activity and energy." Hibbard, Robert II (I1848)
 
112 No documentation has yet been found establishing her maiden name as McGillis, though that is Post family history. There are several census which put her as the wife of Jabez, in Ohio, with a birthyear approximating 1812. Mcgillis, Mary Ann (I25)

119 Oddly, his Florida driver license issued in 1976 shows his date of birth as May 2 1902, rather than 1905. His court-recognized Registration of Birth dated December 8 1941 states clearly his date of birth as May 2, 1905, and this is the date found in all family records.

In a "man on the street" piece in a New Smyrna Beach FL newspaper, the topic was "Should we resume diplomatic relations with Cuba?", Charles is quoted as replying "Yes. If we did so then Cuba would cuddle right up to us and would never be a threat. In fact, Cuba should have become a State long before Hawaii way out there. It has good tobacco and sugar for us, among other things."
The quote was accompanied by a photograph of Charles, cigar in mouth. 
Post, Charles Walter (I30)
 
120 On her marriage license she is shown as residing in the Village of Best Station, PA. Blose, Emma T. (I8957)

133 Richard came to America on the famous "Mayflower" voyage. He was not one of the Puritans fleeing religious persecution for Leyden Holland, but rather was one of the "strangers" picked up inLondon by the ship (the "strangers", over 30 men and families, comprised more than half the Mayflower passengers). The Mayflower, having departed Plymouth England 6 September 1620, landed inAmerica later that year. Richard's wife and five daughters came later aboard the "Anne" in 1623. He was not one of the Leyden, Holland Pilgrims, but instead had been a merchant at Greenwich,county of Kent, England (Directory of Ancestral Heads).
He joined the Pilgrims in Southampton and, upon their landing at Plymouth, was one of ten men chosen to be in the exploring party, and was one of those surprised by the Indians in "TheFirst Encounter". Though Warren appears to have been all but excluded from some Pilgrim histories such as Bradford's, it appears he was among the more important and accomplished of thePilgrims. Richard was one of the signers of the Mayflower Compact, the first establishment of civil government in America. He was given the prefix "Mr.", or Master, by Governor WilliamBradford, which indicates one of high birth or achievement.
He may have had a period of illness before his death in 1628. Even so, he appears as a leader of one of twelve groups formed to own cattle in 1627. In that same year, he is listed asone of the 58 sole proprietors of land in Plymouth Colony.
His wife, Elizabeth, outlived him by 45 years. She never remarried, but was allowed to succeed to her husband's rights as "Purchaser". She was honored with the title "Mrs.", as mostwomen were called "Goodwife". (Mayflower Families, 1981: Mass. Society of Mayflower Descendants)
There are numerous sources of information about Richard and the three generations following. Only some of them are cited here; there may be several other corraborating sources. 
Warren, Richard (I647)
 
134 Roswell's will, written earlier in the year of his death, is partially reproduced and summarized here:
(Roswell leaves his entire estate to his wife, Sarah, for so long as she lives. Subsequent to his wife's death, the remains shall be equally divided between his children William, Ogden, Harriet, and Cornelia, subject to "the restrictions and limitations concerning my son William".)
"whereas my son William Bradley has hereafter been the subject of habits of Intemperance which have rendered him at times incapable of managing his own business or providing for himself, buthas recently pledged himself to abstain therefrom and hath thus far duly fulfilled his pledge. I therefore in view of his past and present conduct and with a desire to promote his futurecomfort advantage and support, do further will direct and declare as gratification restrictions and limitations on the Second article above mentioned, that if he shall adhere to his present determination to abandon wholly his habits of Intemperance and shall at the time of the decease of my said Wife, so far wholly have conquered the Same, that in the opinion of my ... Executor it would be safe for him the Said William for his own good to take charge and management of business and his own future, then and in that case the said William shall come into possession of his portion of my Estate above devised and given equally with the other devisees. ... But in case the said William shall return to his former habit of Intemperance...I further will order and direct that my son George Bradley, who is hereinafter appointed my Executor, take possession and control of the share of my Estate so designed for my son William ... and hold the same as trustee for the benefit of the said William."
(The will continues to give specific instructions on taking care of poor William should he return to his Intemperance.) 
Bradley, Doctor Roswell (I697)
 
135 Rudolph served in the U.S. Civil War. He enlisted for three years at Otto, NY in the 64th N.Y.V.I. (also known as the Cattaraugus Regiment), Company C, on September 16, 1861 at age 19. Here-enlisted on January 19, 1864.

Among the battles in which the 64th served were: Yorktown; Fair Oaks; Gaines' Mills; Antietam; Fredericksburg; Chancellorsville; Gettysburg; Spottsylvania; and Petersburg (according to the NYAdjutant General's Report, 1868).

On May 5 1864 he was wounded at the Battle of Wilderness, Virginia (Spotsylvania County), part of Grant’s Overland Campaign (for this gunshot wound to the left leg he ultimately received apension of $2 per month).

The principal commanders in the battle of Wilderness were Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and Maj. Gen. George G. Meade for the USA and Gen. Robert E. Lee for the Confederacy. Losses were heavy:5597 Killed, 21463 Wounded, and 10667 Missing or Captured from the USA, and 2000 Killed, 6000 Wounded, and 3400 Missing or Captured from the CSA. There were162,920 total troops engaged (USA101,895; CSA 61,025).

On the morning of May 5, 1864, the Union V Corps attacked Ewell’s Corps on the Orange Turnpike, while A.P. Hill’s corps during the afternoon encountered Getty’s Division (VI Corps) andHancock’s II Corps on the Plank Road. Fighting was fierce but inconclusive as both sides attempted to maneuver in the dense woods. Darkness halted the fighting, and both sides rushed forwardreinforcements. At dawn on May 6, Hancock attacked along the Plank Road, driving Hill’s Corps back in confusion. Longstreet’s Corps arrived in time to prevent the collapse of the Confederateright flank. At noon, a devastating Confederate flank attack in Hamilton’s Thicket sputtered out when Lt. Gen. James Longstreet was wounded by his own men. The IX Corps (Burnside) movedagainst the Confederate center, but was repulsed. The battle was a tactical draw. Grant, however, did not retreat as had the other Union generals before him. On May 7, the Federals advancedby the left flank toward the crossroads of Spotsylvania Courthouse.

On September 22 1864 he was transferred to Company A, and promoted to Corporal on October 10 of that year. He was further promoted to First Sergeant on January 7 1865, and was commissioned asa 2nd Lieutenant on July 11 1865 (date of rank May 27, 1865). Three days later (July 14) he was mustered out of service at Washington.

This was quite an accomplishment in those days, without washing machines or clothes driers. Anderson, Anna Laura (I788)
 
145 She was tall and stately, and seemed very prim and proper, though she is remembered as having a big heart. She attended Oberlin College (Ohio) Preparatory Department from 1881 to 1883 (thePreparatory Department is similar to our modern High School).
