  • Notes 
    • From "Morgan Roots" by Russell David Morgan: Jean Ruth (Kenney) Morgan spent part of her childhood in Bristol, and the balance in Pembroke, NH, where she attended the one-room schoolhouse at the junction of Burrough Road and French's Hill, at which time the family lived in the McWhirk place on Burrough Road. She later attended Pembroke Academy, and the family lived on North Pembroke Road, in a place purchased by Jean's father. Jean Kenney died of cancer.
