  • Notes 
    • The family of Landis and Emily (Colby) Morgan lived in the old Morgan farmhouse on Bog Road, Bow, NH, although there may have been a period of time when they made their home in Goffstown where Landis built a home on South Mast Road in the 1870's; this property was later disposed of. Landis Morgan's death record says he was widowed, a farmer, and the cause of death was pneumonia lasting eight days with La Grippe lasting 12 days as the contributing cause. He was a resident of Bow, NH all his life.
