Notes


Some loose Garnetts Grouped here for Research purposes - relationship of kids on this card to each other is not determined yet, but each ones descendants are. please write jbass@digital.net. Children on this record may or maynot be related - but are in the same area and under research. All input appreciated.


CSA-two cousin generals: R.B. GARNETT and R.S. GARNET.


Brigidier-General Richard Brook GARNETT
Born: November 21, 1817 at Essex County, Virginia, America Died: July 3, 1863 at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA (killed in action) Father: William Henry GARNETT [1786-1866] Mother: Anna Maria BROOKE [1787-1854]


twin brother William Henry Garnett, was born on November 21, 1817.
Garnett attended the "Hancock party" in Los Angeles where he together with General Winfield S. Hancock and Lewis A. Armistead struggled with the difficult choice of continuing to serve under the old flag or to resign and serve their confederate states.


General Brooke Garnett was shot from his horse while near the middle of the brigade within about 25 paces of the stone wall. [A recreation of Pickett's charge and Garnett's last moments is included in the motion picture "Gettysburg"]


Richard Garnett's war effects, along with those of his cousin [General Robert Selden Garnett] are housed today in the Museum of the Confederacy.


GARNETT, Robert Selden Jr.
[1819-1861]
Born: Dec. 16, 1819 at "Champlain", Essex County, Virginia
Died: July 13, 1861 at Carrick's Ford, on Cheat River
Father: Robert Selden Garnett Sr. [1789-1840]
Mother: Oylmpia Charlotte DeGouges [1796-1856]


aide-de-camp to General Zachary Taylor from 1846 to 1849. Garnett was appointed adjutant general of the state troops of Virginia, and allotted the task of organizing this heterogeneous force into an army. Early in June he was commissioned brigadier-general and given command of the Confederate troops operating in northwestern Virginia.


When the Federal attack dislodged the Confederates from Rich Mountain, Garnett was compelled to abandon Laurel Hill. He saved his army, outnumbered more than six to one by McClellan's men, by a most masterly retreat. In the heat of the retreat, Garnett shouted: "They need a little lesson. They may get away if they like". These were to be his last words. On July 13, 1861 General Robert Selden Garnett was killed instantly while directing the conduct of his rear guard after the sharp engagement at Carrick's Ford, on Cheat River.


Garnett had the distinction of being the first general officer to be killed in the Civil War. He was a brave and skilful officer, of whom the South expected much, but who did not have opportunity to fulfil the promise of his military training.


Joyce Garnett m. to Thomas Andrews, she was dau of Thomas Garnett. dau m. Richard Gatewood.

Eliam S. MORRIS

15 Nov 1811 - ____

ID Number: I67637

  • RESIDENCE: PA; TN; WI; 1851Yamhill Co. OR
  • BIRTH: 15 Nov 1811, Pennsylvania
  • RESOURCES: See: Bio notes [S2568]

Family 1 : Susannah GOODE
  1.  Sarah Priscilla MORRIS

Notes


"He was the son of William Morris and Priscilla Springer.
BIO: Eliam S. Morris, a well-to-do farmer, an Oregon Pioneer of 1851, and Forty-one years a resident of North Yam Hill, is justly entitled to one of the places of honor in the history of the State, in which he has borne an humble part in upbringing.


Mr. Morris was born in Pennsylvania, November 15, 1811. His ancestors originated in Denmark. His parents, William and Priscilla (Springer) Morris, natives of Pennsylvania, reared a family of ten children, only two of whom are now living: Eliam S. and Martin Luther. The subject of our sketch was the eldest son. He grew up on his father's farm, was early inured to hard work, and his limited education was received in the district schools.


In 1840 Mr. Morris was married to Miss Susannah Good, who was born in Missouri and reared in Wisconsin. Her father, Richard Good, still a resident of Missouri, is now in his ninetieth year. In the spring of 1851, with their five children, they started on the long journey across the plains for Oregon, their wagons being drawn by oxen. The pleasure of this trip was unmarred by sickness, and on the 25th of September, 1851, after a most delightful journey, they arrived at North Yam Hill, within a mile of where they now reside. From Charles Hubbard Mr. Morris purchased a donation claim, paying for it $500. A log house had been built on it, and five acres were cleared, the whole tract comprising 318 acres. Here they have since resided, engaged in general farming and stock-raising. Mr. and Mrs. Morris are the parents of the following named children: Sarah P., widow of Andrew J. Turner; Calvin, who is married and resides on a farm near his father; Harriet, wife of Fred Chatfield, died at the age of twenty-six years, leaving three children; Justin G., who is married and settled near the old homestead; Charles E., who is married, lives in Goldendale, Washington; Martin Luther, who is married and settled on a farm; Joan M., wife of Cass Tuplett, a farmer; Jordan D. is married and engaged in farming; and William Richard, Morris Good, and Elizabeth Malvina, all single and at home. Mr. Morris has been a life long Republican. He has never joined any society, and has never held any office except in his school district. He and his good wife are now spending the evening of their useful and active lives in the home which their industry has provided, and under the shadow of the vines and trees that have grown up since they settled here. These trees stretch their friendly branches over his head and seem to say: "Rest, rest well, old Pioneer, under our protecting branches. We are old friends, tried and true."

Family 1 : Eleanor EWING
  1. +Robert PORTER
Family 2 : Margaret LEIPER
  1.  Elizabeth PORTER

Notes


CONFLICT: "Several sources have identified Robert Porter as being married to a Margaret Ewing a sister of Eleanor. Evidence does not support that viewpoint. Evidence plainly identifies Margaret being married to a second person with the name of Andrew Porter. Some say that Robert is the son of Andrew and Eleanor Ewing Porter and that he was married to a Margaret Ewing, the sister of Eleanor. The Pennsylvania marriage record and the naming of children for a few generations appears to say that Margaret Lindsey/Lindsay is the correct name of the wife of Robert Porter."


"The Will of Andrew Porter, Cecil County, Maryland Will book 5, page 207-210: Names of children mentioned in Andrew Porter's will: Margaret Gay, James Leiper, Mary, Eleanor Porter, Catherine Evans, Elizabeth Linsey (sic), grandson Andrew Porter son of Robert Porter."
