6: The Alkire family history is easily traced back to 1626, when, according to evidence copied from records at The Hague, there lived in Holland, near Arnheim on the Rhine, a family bearing a coat of arms given by William II, Prince of Orange; the baronetcy name was Algire. The arms, which were on a silver shield, may thus be described : Crest, a falcon, red beak and feet ; bunch of grapes and wine-glass; pike and cross sword; with the motto--"Cum Salus." Only noblemen and men of rank used gold and silver shields; the commoners used leather and wood. In religious belief the members of this family were Lutherans. Their forefathers were from Scotland, where the family name was spelled Alkirk. In the 17th century, one Almonious Algire came to America with Lord Baltimore and others. He settled on Albemarle Sound, near the Virginia shore and took part with the Governor in his various campaign's against the Indians. An Almonious Alkire was in the battle of Fort Chillicothe, in Ross County, Ohio. In 1720, near Moorefield, Virginia (now West Virginia), he married Mary Crayman. To this union were born four children, namely : William, born in 1724, who married Elizabeth Moore in Virginia and had 12 children; Deborah, born in 1728; Almonious, Jr., born in 1730; and Sarah, born in 1732. Almonious Alkire, Jr., was married near Moorefield, Virginia, in 1751, to Lydia Patten and to them were born six children, as follows : Adam, born in 1753; Margaret, born in 1757; Almonious, born in 1762 ; Dolly, born in 1765; Michael, the grandfather of our subject; and George, born in 1773, who became a minister of the Gospel. Michael Alkire was born in Kentucky in 1771 and was there married on January 6, 1793, to Dorothy Phebus, a lady of Scotch descent but of Kentucky birth. They had three children born to them during their residence near Harrodsburg, Kentucky, namely : John M., born November 16, 1793; Nimrod, born March 27, 1796; and Sarah, born July 18, 1798. In 1800 Michael Alkire with his family and some of his brothers moved to Pickaway County, Ohio, settling on Deer Creek near Williamsport. Here he built the old log cabin of two rooms which continued to be the family home for many years, and stood until 1906. Mr. Alkire lived here until his death, February 11, 1843, and was buried on the home farm. At the time of his decease he owned large tracts of land. His wife died May 11, 1854. Seven children were born to Michael Alkire and his wife after they came to Ohio, namely : Nancy, William M., Katharine, Ruan, James, Alexander and Benjamin Franklin. Of the 10 children born to Michael Alkire and wife, John M. married Katharine Halstead; Nimrod married a Miss Baggs; Sarah married James Hearst; Nancy married Capt. Elliot Halstead; William M. married his cousin, Mary Alkire; Katharine married Phineas Cade; Ruan married Alabartis Halstead, son of Dr. Abraham Halstead; Benjamin Franklin married Hannah Halstead, a sister of Alabartis Halstead.

7: Henry Clay Morgan, admittedly the most extensive stock dealer in the state of Indiana, is one of Greene county’s native sons and has ever manifested a pardonable pride in the beautiful locality where on the 14th day of August, 1852, he first saw the light of day. In his veins flows the blood of a long line of New England ancestry, also of antecedents that were among the early substantial yeomanry of the good state of Ohio. His father, George C. Morgan, was born in Connecticut, but in early life left his native state to engage in business for himself as a peddler of clocks, in the prosecution of which he traveled extensively over the southern and western states, meeting with encouraging success in the undertaking and later with true Yankee foresight, judiciously invested his earnings in southern Indiana real estate, locating in Greene county in 1854. Mary Alkire, who became the wife of George C. Morgan, was born and reared in Ohio, in which state her marriage also occurred. It was shortly after taking to himself a wife that Mr. Morgan come to this county, as stated above, and settling in Washington township, purchased a large tract of land and engaged extensively in farming and stock raising, giving special attention to the latter, and in the course of a few years, became not only the leading stock man in the county, but one of the largest in the state, having been among the first in southern Indiana to buy on an extensive scale for the eastern markets. By close attention to his business interests, he added greatly to his holdings and in time became quite wealthy, owning in addition to real estate and other property elsewhere, a stock farm of two thousand acres in Greene county, every square foot of which was acquired through his persevering industry and successful management. George C. and Mary Morgan reared a family of five children. -Biographical memoirs of Greene County, Ind

16: Dudley Thomas, one of the first settlers of Massachusetts, who came over in the Arabella, was the only son of capt. Roger Dudley. In 1597 he was at the siege of Amiens, under Henry IV, having a captain’s commission from Queen Elizabeth. Mr. Hutchinson says, he became a sober nonconformist from hearing Dodd, Hildersham, and other puritan divines. He certainly was a zealous man in whatever he undertook as appears from Winthrop’s journal; and upon some occasions he discovered very warm passions. That he was a very prudent man appears, however, from his good conduct in the management of the estate of the earl of Northampton, which was committed to his care. He sat under Mr. Cotton’s ministry, before the planting of Massachusetts. When he came over in the Arabella, he was 54 years old, but his strength of body, and health of mind, fitted him for any hardships. The company in England chose Mr. Winthrop governour and Mr. Humphries deputy governour of the plantation. Mr. Humphries did not embark as was expected, and Mr. Dudley was chosen in his place. In 1634, he was chosen governour, and also several times afterwards. He was the second in authority seven or eight years, sometimes under Winthrop, and once under Endicot. He was appointed major general in 1644; this was a new office in the plantation. He was continued in the magistracy from the time of his arrival to his death, which happened, July 31st, 1653, in the 77th year of his age. He was upright and honest in his disposition, blunt in his manners, and withstood magistrates and ministers when he thought them worthy of reproof. Nor would he yield to any popular opinion to gain honour and authority. A serious dispute took place between him and governour Winthrop, which required the interposition of their friends among the clergy and laity. He was more firm in the Hutchinsonian, or Antimonian controversy, than any of the magistrates, and even accused Mr. Cotton of departing from the faith; and without prejudice or attachment from prior connexions, required an explanation of his principles and conduct. Endicot also found him an opponent that was not to be moved when he dissented from the general opinion of the magistrates, or wished to introduce some novel things in their proceedings. Mr. Dudley was not a man of learning equal to Winthrop or Bellingham, but in this respect was not inferior to Endicot. Neither Endicot nor Dudley possessed what, in the present age, would be called liberality of sentiment, or urbanity of manners. Mr. D was such an enemy to toleration that he not only spoke against it, but left a number of lines which the friends of rational religion must wish he had never written, as they are not to the credit of his poetry or his charity, but being written, and handed down, are quoted to give a just view of the character of the man: Let men of God, in courts and churches watch O’er such as do a toleration hatch; Lest that ill egg bring forth a cockatrice To poison all with heresy and vice If men be left, and otherwise combine, My epitaphs, I die no libertine. -A biographical dictionary: containing a brief account of the first settlers, and other eminent characters among the magistrate

17: The Rev. John Woodbridge was rector of parish Stanton near Highworth in Wiltshire. He died December 9, 1637. "He was so able and faithful," wrote Cotton Mather in the Magnalia, "as to obtain a high esteem among those that at all knew the invaluable worth of such a minister." He married Sarah Parker, daughter of Rev. Robert Parker, a learned English divine--"did so virtuously that her own personal character would have made her highly esteemed, if a relation to such a father had not farther added unto the lustre of her character." (Magnalia III Chap. V.) She married (second) Mr. Thomas Bailey. Children: 1. Rev. John , born 1613 ; mentioned below. 2. Rev. Benjamin , born 1622 , died November 1, 1684 , matriculated at Oxford , November 9, 1638 ; came to New England in 1639 and was the first graduate of Harvard of the nine receiving degrees in 1642 ; M.

Sarah , born 1614 ; married Rev. John Kerridge . 4. Lucy, married - Sparhawk , minister of Culleton, Devonshire. Rev. John Woodbridge was born in 1613. He was a student at Oxford University, but he refused to take the oath of conformity and had to leave. He came to America in 1634 on the ship "Mary and John" with his uncle, Rev. Thomas Parker, settling in Newbury, Massachusetts. He was town clerk there from 1634-1638 and surveyor of arms in 1637. In 1643, he taught school in Boston. He helped negotiate the purchase of land now the town of Andover, Massachusetts, and was ordained minister of Andover on October 24, 1645. In 1647, he returned to England with his wife and children, where he was chaplain of the Parliamentary commissioners who treated with the King at the Isle of Wight. He was also minister of Andover, Hants, and at Barford St. Martin in Wiltshire until he was ejected at the time of the Restoration. On July 26, 1663 he came back to New England. He was made assistant to his uncle, Rev. Thomas Parker, at Newbury and remained there until November 1670. He was assistant in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1683-84. John was a wealthy man, owning a farm on North street, Newbury. His wife, Mercy, was the daughter of Governor Thomas Dudley.
