  • Notes 
    • 1850 census of Bow, Merrimack County, New Hampshire:

      - Morgan, Jesse J., age 30, a farmer;
      - Morgan, Lydia F., age 30, wife,
      - Morgan, Theresa J., age 4,
      - Morgan, Jesse F., age 2,
      - Morgan, Emily A., age 6 months

      I don't find him in the 1860 census anywhere.

      1870 census of Sherman, Aroostook County, Maine:

      - Morgan, Jesse J., age 50, occupation Farmer,
      - Morgan, Lydia F., age 51,
      - Morgan, Emily A., age 19,
      - Morgan, Landus, age 18,
      - Morgan, Horace P., age 14,
      - Morgan, Jesse J., Jr., age 8,
      - Morgan, Eugenia, age 16,
      - Morgan, Lydia R., age 12.


    • 1880 census of Sherman, Aroostook County, Maine, enumerated 19-25 June 1880:

      - Morgan, Jesse J., age 59, occupation Farmer, born New Hampshire, both parents born New Hampshire.
      - Morgan, Millard L., age 27, son, occupation Works on Farm, born Maine, both parents born New Hampshire.
      - Morgan, Eugenie E., age 25, daughter, occupation Keeping House, born Maine, both parents born New Hampshire.
      - Morgan, Horace H.P., age 23, son, occupation Farm Laborer, born Maine, both parents born New Hampshire.
      - Morgan, Rufina M., age 21, daughter, occupation Teaching School, born Maine, both parents born New Hampshire.
      - Morgan, Jesse J., Jr., age 18, son, occupation At Home, born Maine, both parents born New Hampshire.

    • Jesse's daughter Lydia appears in the 1870 census at age 12, but does not appear in the 1880 census. His daughter Rufina M. is not listed in the 1870 census when she would have been 11, but does appear in the 1880 census at age 21. Were these two names the same daughter?

    • From Family Treemaker and the Colby genealogy: Jesse Morgan moved to the Golden Ridge Plantation in April 1851; I believe this is in Sherman Mills, Maine. Jessie was drafted at age 44 and had nine living children at that time. Jesse was in Co. E, First Regiment Maine Veteran Volunteers (infantry), in the army of the Potomac, from December 8, 1864 to June 12, 1865. He was present when General Lee surrendered. Aunt Hilda said she and Phil went up there in 1941.
