I know what you mean. I came across a passage regarding some of my ancestors on my mom’s side during the revolutionary war. They all fought in the revolution. “Every Morton big enough to carry a gun.”

It is amazing. I didn’t even think that we were here yet until he found that. The Irish side didn’t get here until the 1850’s.

I have found 3 ancestors in the Revolution, a father and son that weren’t in a standing army and a 3rd that was. I don’t know what the father and son did but they are listed by DAR. Actually all 3 are.

This is the story of my Morton line:

http://reocities.com/heartland/meadows/2940/Warwickshire.html

The Howard Richard Morton of 9th Missouri Infantry listed as a “Confederate Morton” on this page is my mother’s grandfather.

We also had Mortons listed as “Federal Soldiers from Arkansas & Missouri.”

Also on that page:

Over 60 Mortons were on a Revolutionary War list of Virginia - “every Morton large enough to carry a gun.”

“Our 4th great-grandpa Samuel Morton was one of them. He was a Minute Man in 1775,1776 and 1777.”

Thanks for that. There is a lot of history in your family that effected the world.
Mary Anna Custis Lee
Mary Anna Randolph Custis Lee (October 1, 1808 – November 5, 1873) was the wife of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.[1]
Mary Anna Custis Lee was the only surviving child of George Washington Parke Custis, George Washington's step-grandson and adopted son and founder of Arlington House, and Mary Lee Fitzhugh Custis, daughter of William Fitzhugh[2] and Ann Bolling Randolph Fitzhugh. Her godmother, Mary Randolph, the first person recorded buried at Arlington, wrote an early book on housekeeping and cooking. Lee's birth year is usually given as 1808, but it appears in the Custis family Bible and in records kept by her mother as 1807, and is also referred to in a letter her mother wrote in the autumn of 1807.
