Notes for Philemon MOREY
Biographical Sketch (1969):1752 "Philemon Morey's family leave the Plymouth records after 1745, and extensive

research has not located their place of residence between 1745 and 1790 when Philemon appears at Rutland, Vermont."


Biographical Sketch (1969):1785 "With this strong evidence, the search goes back to Vermont, and especially to Rutland.

The compiler studies Federal census records of 1790, 1800, and 1810, and examines court records of probate, land

transfers, tax lists, and church records on file there and in Washington.
Philemon Morey is the first to appear. Though not on the tax lists of 1782 and 1787, he is found at Rutland in the Federal

census record of 1790, with a wife, two daughters and a male 'under 16.' His is the only one of the name of Morey in

Rutland in that census year.
By 1800, Philemon Morey, over 45 years of age, is still resident, and in addition Abraham Morey, a young married man

under 26, with a son and two daughters under 10, and Joseph Morey, whose age we can reconstruct as between 30-35,

are heads of separate households in the town. Abraham's age in the 1800 census of 'under 26' could fit him into the

family of 1790 Philemon Morey. Though this differs from the birth date as reconstructed from Abraham's burial

headstone, it is possible that a reading of '59 years' at death was actually '57.' The stone is weathered and difficult to read.
By 1810, only Joseph Morey's name appears as the head of a household in Rutland, though Abraham Morey was at

Rutland as late as 1806, when town records show he was designated a Freeman. Joseph Morey's own age in this census

was 40-45. In addition, his household contains a male and female over 45. Wait Wright and his father Simeon Wright

live next to Morey.


Church records of West Rutland show that 'old Mrs. Morey' died November 15, 1810 and Philemon Morey the following

month, December 28. It is the compiler's belief that Joseph's household included his aged parents.


The last deed of record in the name of Joseph Morey - and he was the only one of the family whose name appears as

either Grantee or Grantor in indices of deeds at Rutland - was in 1812. This fits with the arrival of the family at Licking

County in 1813.
Where Abraham Morey lived in the census of 1810 and 1820 has not been discovered, though a thorough search of these

census years has been made in areas where Morey families were known to have lived - Washington and Saratoga

Counties, New York; Rensselaer and Columbia Counties of the same State, etc. The loss by fire in 1875 of Licking

County, Ohio records has made proof of his arrival date in that county difficult to obtain.


The family of Asa Morey, age 49 in the 1850 census of Morrow County, Ohio (adjoining Licking) indicates a strong

family connection to Abraham Morey. From family records of Jay Dewey Morey, it appears Asa may have been a son,

and therefore a brother of William P. Morey (1814-1852). In this family, the census shows residence from Vermont to

New York State, as late as 1828 in the latter. The repetition of family names of Abraham, Stillman, and William as given

names is an important clue.
Therefore, we conclude that (1) the Morey family came to Licking County, Ohio from Rutland, Vermont, and (2) that

Abraham and Joseph Morey could have been sons of one Philemon Morey of Rutland from 1790 to 1810.


The search for an earlier record of Philemon proved very difficult. He is not found among the Revolutionary War records

of New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island nor Connecticut. None of the scattered published

material on the Morey families indicated such a given name.
Therefore, when a birth record of one Philemon Morey was found at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1743, son of Joseph

Morey and his wife Mary Swift (Mayflower Descendant volume 17, p. 134), and this is the only one of this name found

in an extensive search, we can conclude he is the man of Rutland, Vermont in 1790.
Families of the name Morey are found early in New London, Connecticut; Litchfield and Sharon of that State; the

counties of Dutchess, Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer, Washington and Clinton had settlements in number of Moreys; and

sons of an older brother of Joseph removed to Old Canaan, Connecticut before 1758, then to Burnt Hills, Saratoga

County, New York before 1790. Some Morey families went to Quebec and New Brunswick in Canada. In census and tax

lists, published county and local town histories, church records of all these locations (except Canada), the compiler has

not found a trace of the family of Joseph Morey after 1745.


Names given to members of the Morey family of Licking and Knox Counties, Ohio in the seventh generation, indicate a

possible connection with Stillman and Satterlee families. These latter surnames are found in census records of 1790 to

1820 in large numbers in Rensselaer and Columbia Counties, New York.
Therefore, while definite proof of the lineal descent of Abraham from Philemon, and of William P. from Abraham Morey,

is not at present available and has not been found in a thorough search of genealogical sources, nevertheless there is

strong evidence pointing to a conclusion of such descent."
Biographical Sketch (1969):1786 "Philemon Morey, born 15 May 1743.
Philemon Morey was a young man of nineteen years of age, living at Voluntown, Connecticut, when his older brother

Joseph died prematurely in the winter of 1762/3. He filed a claim against his brother's estate, and is not located again in

an official record of the area. In 1790, Philemon appears in Rutland, Vermont federal census of that year, as head of a

family. Intensive research in all published records - and some filed only locally - show no other of that name existed

during those years in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Hampshire, or Vermont. It is the compiler's opinion

that Philemon Morey of the 1790 census was the Philemon Morey, son of Joseph and Mary Morey.


Location of his residence between 1765 and 1790 had not been determined. He is not included in published records of

those who served in the Revolutionary War from northern areas. It is believed that he may have joined two brothers,

Samuel and Elisha, another brother Lathrop, and removed to Albany County, New York, though specific evidence of this

has not been found, 1790-1810.


Conveyances of real estate, town meetings books, church records, census records, record the names of Joseph, Philemon,

Samuel, Elisha, and Abraham Morey at various times. Undoubtedly, this is the family of this lineage, for no other in the

Morey line contained all of these names. Therefore, and especially because of the fact that Philemon Morey paid a fine

imposed against Abraham Morey in March 1806 (Town Treasurer's Records, Rutland, Vermont, Book 1, p. 8) in a note

signed jointly by them, indicating responsibility for debt, the obvious conclusion is that this lineage descends through

Philemon Morey to Abraham.


Philemon Morey of Rutland, Vermont, must have arrived in that town shortly before the census-taking of that year. Both

he and his wife died in the year 1810 at Rutland, and were probably in the household of his oldest son Joseph, in the U.S.

census of that year. The church record of his wife's name gives only 'old Mrs. Morey died at the age of 57.'
From that generation there is little difficulty tracing the lineage. Many Rutland people migrated from 1806 to 1816 to

Licking County, Ohio, as lands in that area opened up. Emigration was enthusiastically sponsored by Colonel Wait

Wright (War 1812), who himself removed to Homer, Licking County, where his monument in the cemetery rests near

that of Abraham Morey."

Lynton,

I am a descendant of Rachel Wright, Wait's sister.

Rachel was b. abt. 1750. She married John Ranson Holcombe and later Zenas

Ross U.E. John & Rachel Holcombe had two children Rachel b. abt.1766 and

John Holcombe U.E. 1768-1861.

4S. Zenas Ross

Rachel married Zenas Ross who sold land in Rutland in 1781 and afterwards moved to Fredericksburgh, Canada.

5. Martha Wright

Martha b. abt 1755. (In Feb 1836 she gave her age as 81 when applying for a pension) She married Moses Pratt, 13

May 1779 at Rutland. He was b. 21 Sep 1754, d. 23 Aug 1823 at Manerva, NY.

6. Wait Wright U.E.

Had 1/2 lot 1 conc 3 Fredericksburg. Family moved to Darlington area.

In 1784, Wait Wright sold property in Rutland, Vermont, while residing in the province of Quebec (now Ontario),

Canada.
"Private Wait Wright appears in a muster roll of the Kings Rangers dated 21 January 1783 as country New York, age 24,

5' 8" tall, length of service 6 months. He was a Loyalist or Tory, while his father fought for the Patriots. In various

books about the loyalists, he is listed as living in the Midland District in 1786 in Fredericksburgh (Lennox & Addington

County) and being a "single man entitled to rations for 1 person per day". So, either his wife had died by that time, and

he remarried, or he had not yet married.
The order of birth of the children is taken from "Sons and Daughters of the Loyalists", pp 348-349, which lists all of the

children granted land as a child of a Loyalist in the Province of Ontario. The birth dates of the children is not known, nor

is there any proof of the order of birth. The only presumed year of birth is taken from the 1860, 1870 & 1880 census for

Huron Co., Michigan, which lists Joshua B. Wright as 60, 70 and 80 years old.


Wait was in Fredericksburgh and Marysburgh 'til about mid 1790s then in Hope Twp 'til 1807 (tax rolls)."

Wait Wright was a Loyalist, and the son of Captain Simeon Wright.

According to "Sons & Daughters of the American Loyalists", he had 13 children. There is no record I know of, that

indicates where these children were born, or who their mother was. Dates of birth for most of the children are estimates,

at best.

Daniel Wright, b. abt 1784

Amos Wright, b. abt 1787

Wait Wright, b. abt 1789; died 1856; married Lucinda Stoner*

John J. Wright, b abt 1802

Smith Wright, b. abt 1805

Hannah Wright, b. abt 1806

Permelia Wright, b. abt 1806


It is known that Wait Wright was in Fredericksburgh in the 1780/1790's, Marysburgh, and then Hope Township up until

1807 (he was on the tax rolls till then). From that time onward, I can not find a trace of him.


Most of his sons appear in the Militia Rolls for Durham County.
I have children, etc for those marked with an *. I have nothing proven on any of the other children, except the names of

spouses, where listed.


Any illumination that anyone can give me on the other children, and their families, would be very greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Lynton Stewart San Marcos, CA

I am looking for ANY definitive information on Wait (also spelled Waite) Wright, a loyalist, after he came to Canada. He

is listed in the books on Loyalists.


He was known to be in Canada by 1784, when he sold land in Vermont from Quebec.
He has been associated with Fredricksburgh, Marysburgh, and Darlington.
He had 13 children by an unknown wife, all listed in "Sons and Daughters of the American Loyalists". There again is no

data known to me, on where any of the children were born, or their dates of birth. I have NO idea where he died.


Children:

Daniel Wright, married Susan Batter

Margaret Wright, married John Batter

Wait Wright, died 1856, Porter Twp., Rock Co., Wisconscin (have his wife and children)

Electra Wright, married Daniel Hudgin 28 Jul 1819, Darlington, Ontario

Rachel Wright, married William Hudgin, died 1829 Marysburgh (I have their children)


Joshua B. Wright, born about 1800; married Leah ?, born abt 1799; had at least 3 children (Jesse Wright, b. abt 1835,

Charles Wright, b. 1840, Louisa Wright, b. abt 1843); this family emigrated to Huron County, MI

between 1850 and 1860. [NOTE: Jesse Wright is my line]

2006:

I am looking for information on the family/children of Wait Wright, U.E. Wait Wright was known to be in Hope



Township no later than 1806.

The wife of Wait Wright is unknown. If anyone has any clues at all, it would be greatly appreciated.

The order of birth of the children is not known. They are placed the same way here, as they are listed in "Sons and

Daughters of the American Loyalists. All of the sons were listed in the Durham County Militia Rolls in 1828/29, so they

lived in Durham County at that time.

James, born Rutland VT wife unknown but he had a daughter named Julia.

Margaret, b. Rutland, VT, married John Batter

Daniel, b. Rutland, m. Susan Batter

John - born Canada

Amos, b. Canada

Wait, b. Canada, married Lucinda Stoner, went to Wisconsin, extensive family in my records.

Rachel, b. Canada, m. William Hudgins, large family in my records

Simeon, b. Canada
Joshua, b. Canada, m. Leah ?, moved to Michigan, 3 known kids in my records

Smith, b. Canada

Permelia/Pemelia, b. Canada

Hannah, b., Canada

Betsey, b. Canada

Electra/Electa, b. Canada, m. Daniel Hudgins

Reuben, b. Canada

This was a large family, known to be in Darlington and Hope townships.

There must have been some records on them.

I would greatly appreciate any information, or clues, that anyone could provide on tracing the children's families, and/or

the family of Joshua's wife Leah, and/or the name of Wait Wright's wife.

SPAULDING --Margaret Bowman, 23 Aug 1998

I am looking for the Mrs. Spaulding referred to in the following diary entry: "Aug. 20, 1930: (We attended) the Wright

reunion held at the home of O. D. Smythe at Homer. Mrs. Smythe is Emory Wright's daughter. She has a sister, MRS.

SPAULDING of Oberlin, who says she has information to secure D.A.R. membership through Simeon Wright, Sr."

This Mrs. Spaulding would probably be a descendant of Simeon Wright and Susannah Abbott who emigrated to Licking

County, Ohio in 1816. They had nine children who survived to adulthood:

Seth born January 22, 1792;

Hiram born July 25, 1802;

Sallie Wright born July 05, 1805;

Wait born July 20, 1807;

confirmed by deed and under the seal of the province in their federal possessions, who adhered to

the unity of the empire and joined the royal standard in America, before the treaty of separation in

the year 1783, to ascertain the fame upon oath before the magistrates in the michaelmas quarter-sessions

assembled, now next ensuing the date of this proclamation, in such manner and form, as

the magistrates are directed to receive the fame ; -- and all persons will take notice that if they

neglect to ascertain, according to the mode set forth, their claims to receive deeds without fee, they

will not be considered as entitled, in this respect, to the benefit of having adhered to the unity of the

empire and joined the royal standard in America before the treaty of separation in the year 1783.


Given under my hand and seal at arms, at the government house at York, this sixth day of April, in

-----

1871 census: WILLIAM HUDGIN, 83, ONTARIO PRINCE EDWARD Marysburgh South

------------------------

A boyhood chum of William Hudgin lived on the neighbouring farm, lot 38, by the name of William McLaughlin. A

glimpse into their past can be found in a letter dated 1831, now in the possession of William Hudgin, Brockville (Family

17). The McLaughlins had moved to New York City and the Hudgins were in Prince Edward County. As there was no

postal service in those days, mail was delivered by courier. The courier in this case was Edward Ackerman as noted in

'Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte'.


"Edward Ackerman was the close friend of William Hudgin, a noted Loyalist who, in the Revolution and again in the

War of 1812, played a noble part. These two, while at Kingston, worked together at shoemaking, a business which allows

scope for much conversation, and the old campaigner seems to have made of Edward a friend for life. At a later date the

latter was the go-between when Hudgin wished to correspond with a friend in New York City and vice versa. In his

wagon, a self-constituted rural postman, he conveyed the letters of these two friends between South Marysburgh and

New York City. It reads:

New York June 5, 1831

Dear William: I am at a loss for words to express the pleasing sensation I had on the receipt of your letter for nothing

affords me more pleasure than to find you are well and doing well. I was out to see Simcoe about three years ago. I found

him well and knocking away at the old farm as usual. Everything I saw seemed to remind me of the days of our youth.

During the three weeks I was there I traced the woods, the river, the shores, even the spot where you and I have lain

many a night during the season of salmon. But alas, those days have passed away and never can return. At that time you

and I knew but little of the troubles of this world. I find that you have had your misfortunes as well as myself. I was

married in 1809 and in 1817 was so unfortunate as to lose my wife, leaving me with four small children to care for. I

married again and in six years was left a widower again with the addition of three more children. I married again and

thank God am in tolerably good circumstances having by my industry accumulated a handsome little property in this city.

I feel much indebted to you for calling your eldest daughter after my dear deceased sister. She was a charming girl and

beloved by all who knew her. I wish I had more time to write you a lengthy letter but it is now past nine o'clock and Mr.

Ackerman starts at ten o'clock, his departure being sooner than I expected. Be so kind as to give my best respects to your

brother James and family.

Wm. McLaughlin

to William Hudgin

------------------------

There was more hardship than comfort on the farm in those days. One example will suffice. William had driven into

Picton, a distance of 14 miles, to have some work done. It was bitterly cold and the wind was like a gale. William was

driving his team and sleigh through the drifting snow. It was night-time when his horses stopped. A large tree had fallen,

completely blocking the road. He walked hone, wakened his three biggest sons and, armed with saws and axes, they cut

through the tree and rode the seven miles home after midnight.

This May cover Darlington, as I do know it covers Pickering next door, but

you may need to research the West Lake records covering Adolphustown MM,

etc.


You may know that the Quaker faith experienced a split into Orthodox and

Hicksite in 1828? The record I have for Margaraet seems to indicate this

choice.
Her certificate of removal indicates she came from Philadelphia MMtg on

12/7/1827, with the following details.

Quaker ref: O-11-7 (indicating Orthodox)

PAO ref: B-2-84 (Public Archives of Ontario)

On the 15/1/1829 she chooses Hicksite with the following details and is

disowned by the Orthodox:

54. Wait F Wright

WRIGHT, WAIT F., farmer, was born July 20, 1808, in Cornwall township, six miles from Middlebury, Addison county,

Vermont. In the fall of 1816, his parents, Simeon and Susannah Wright, emigrated to St. Albans township, locating on

what is commonly termed "Wright's Corners," about one mile south of where he now resides. He remained with his

parents on the farm until he was twenty-one years of age. About 1828 he with his brother, Seth S., contracted to build

one mile of the Ohio canal, at the rate of eighteen cents per square yard. They worked on the canal about three years. He

married Mary Hults, October 10, 1830; she was born June 7, 1812, on the banks of the Scioto river, in Ross county, and

near the present town of Waverly. Her parents, William and Elizabeth Hults, were born, the former in Kentucky, the

latter in Virginia. John Pancake, the father of the latter, emigrated to Ross county among the very early settlers in the

county, and participated in the War of 18 12, with William Hults, father of the present Mrs. W. F. Wright. Captain

Simeon Wright, father of the subject of this sketch, enlisted in Addison county, Vermont, under Colonel Fosset, during

the War of 1812. After serving as captain for some time, he was breveted major, serving through the entire war. Wait F.

Wright, subject of this notice, purchased a little over one hundred acres of land in an unbroken forest, about 1829; and


has cleared, fenced and placed it under a high state of cultivation, adding later near three hundred acres. They had eleven

children, ten of whom are living. John P. enlisted under General Steel, in an Iowa regiment, at the beginning of the late

war, and participated in many hard fought battles, among the most hotly contested of which was that at Helena, Arkansas.

He received his discharge at the close of the war, and married Kate Camble ; residing at present in Taylor county, Iowa

Simeon S. married Ellen Linsey, and lives in Taylor county, Iowa; William H. married Margaret Ruster, and lives in

Monroe township, this county; Susannah Amanda married Joseph White, grain dealer, of Gibson City, Illinois; Milton J.

is at home with his parents; Jane E. married John F. Denver, and resides in Taylor

56. James N Wright

WRIGHT, JAMES N., farmer, post office, Johnstown, was born February 20, 1818, in St. Albans township, Licking

county. His father, Simeon Wright, jr., was born March 12, 1772, in Rutland county, Vermont, and was married to Miss

Susannah Abbot in 1795. In 1816 they removed to St. Albans township, then having seven children, James and his sister

being born after their arrival. Mr. Wright died September 4, 1833, from the effects of being thrown from a carriage by a

run-away team. The subject of this sketch endured the usual hardships of a pioneer life, and had the same difficulties to

surmount in order to secure an education, but being persevering and strict, he made the most of his advantages in the

common schools of this period. After reaching his majority, he attended Denison university at Granville, Ohio, for one

year. Since his college life Mr. Wright has been none the less a student, and it is rare, indeed, to find a man who has

devoted his life to farming better informed in regard to current events. In 1848 he was ordained by the Reverend G. G.

West, a local minister in the Methodist church, and from that time until the present, has always held himself in readiness

to perform whatever duties, as a preacher, he was called upon to perform. Mr. Wright was married to Miss Effie Willison, of Monroe township, October 26, 1842, by whom he had seven children: Flora L., bo October 26, 1844; Columbia Ann, September 5, 1846; Esther L., May 3, 1849; Miles L., April 3, 1852; Seth I., May 21, 1854; James N., August 6, 1858;

Frank P., May 19, 1861.When married he was engaged in the mercantile business in Johnstown, in which he continued

for six years, but preferring a farmer's life, he sold out and moved on the farm where he now resides. Here he commenced

with a farm of forty acres, which he has by good management and industry, 'increased to nearly one thousand acres in the

townships of Hartford and Monroe. His great specialty is sheep raising, keeping nearly one thousand head, which are

among the best in the State. He attends the State and county fairs through, and never fails to secure the first premiums for

his exhibits. He is a living example of the success that may be achieved in our county, from what might seem at times the

most adverse circumstances.

60S. John William Alexander Banker

Robert and Eliza Dales, progenitors of a large branch of the Dales family in Ontario. Robert was born in England and

came to Canada about 1835. What an experience for a child that young to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a small sailing ship!

We deduced the approximate date of that voyage from the fact that Robert's next oldest sibling is William, who was born

in Canada in 1836. Eliza was born in Canada. This photo came from a bible owned by Robert Dales who lives in Toronto.

The original is a tintype, a photo developed on metal plates, Delores Dales made this wonderful digital copy.

Solomon Monck and Ann Hudgens, both of Marysburgh, 20 Nov 1842. Witnessed by George Monck, John Monck.

63S. Capt. Solomon Mouck

Black Solomon Mouck.


"Many stories have been told about Black Saul Mouck. In the days when whiskey sold for $1 a gallon, he operated a

hotel in Cherry Valley and a tavern at Point Traverse. The log section of the latter building still stands. Big strong Saul

never turned his back on a fight. He, no doubt, acted as his own 'bouncer'. (This description seems to belie the nature of

his descendants who carried names like 'Temperance Evangeline'.)

Black Saul was involved in some notable sea rescues. He was presented with one of only two silver watches awarded for

life-saving by the Dominion Government. The 'Minerva Cook' was a wreck on Poplar Bar, Long Point. She had capsized

at night and by daybreak she was stranded on her side a hundred yards off shore with waves breaking over her.

Fishermen and farmers gathered but rescue seemed hopeless as the breakers were smashing the shore with great force

causing a strong backwash. Hanging on to the main beam were seven humans and a big dog. The captain's sister had been

swept off three times but had been rescued and restored to the beam. "Jimmy, I'm so cold... so cold". One horse had

drowned in its halter but the other horse had broken loose and started swimming for shore. C.H.J. Snider described the

scene as the crew called out "Sugar, Sugar, come back". The dog swam out and the horse returned. They lashed the girl to

the horse's back and started him for shore again. They were seen to make the shore but the undertow carried them back.

The schooner's cargo was lumber and now it was smashing through the surf. At this point a boat could be seen at the

stern of the wrecked vessel. In it was Jackson Bongard, the other silver watch recipient, two other men and Black Saul's

voice could be heard roaring "If ye won't jump I'll come and fetch ye" and at the next rise of the boat, his mighty paws

seized a seaman by the seat of his pants and plucked him from where he hung on to a rope afraid to let go. Three trips

and all were saved except the captain's sister, the cook, and the dog and horses. "
