"Attached is a photo of our Great-great Grandmother Lucretia Whiting Morgan Bell [1824-1915] (wife of our g-g grandfather Orin Morgan [1821-1867]). Both are buried in the Old Union Cemetery just off of Route 56 going towards Potsdam).
I believe the family history confirms that Orin committed suicide. Lucretia then remarried a Mr. Bell. I don’t think there were any children in that second marriage (Lucretia would have been in her 40’s when she remarried), but I’m not sure. Lucretia and Orin were the parents of our great grandfather Quartus Morgan.
In the picture are Lucretia and her great-grandchildren.

Here’s another picture for you. This one is of our Grandmother Alta Marsh Morgan, her sister Grace Marsh McGee, and her brothers, Fred, Ray and Frank.
The original picture is not of good original quality – it’s a little blurry.
From left to right, Fred (I think), Grace (I’m certain), Frank (I’m certain), Alta (I’m certain) and Ray (I think).
