I am searching for David M Morgan and his wife, Fannie F Fletcher. David was born about 1815, either in Canada or New Hampshire...both of these birth locations came from him... taken from census reports in 1860 (New York) and 1870 (Wisconsin). Also according to the US census reports his parents were born in Vermont and Connecticut. He married Fannie in Canada, where she was born, and their first four children were born in Canada...According to oral family history...Stanstead, Canada... After studying the history of Stanstead I can see why he wasn’t sure where he was from...He named his second child William Sydney.... third, a daughter Amanda, forth a son David Wesley. We have searched for years but have been unable to find any information pointing at David or Fannie’s families... found you in an on-line site about Stanstead...can you recommend anything? Peg Morgan email@example.com Peg, I have written to you before. Here is the original information. Thank you for that will look into it ... feeling like a detective! Wish I had asked more questions when young and there were still people around to ask!! Another person researching the family said it was from family oral history, they spelled it Stausted... so no real proof. Also, have found reference to the Morgan family online that were related to the Colby family. Stating that a Colby descendant name Heath, from Stanstead, married a Morgan from New Hampshire... that is where I found the correct spelling. It seemed like too much of a coincidence to be ignored...I looked up Stanstead history and did find a Fletcher there also...thought it was worth a try....Thank you for your quick response. In a Stanstead Journal article from Sept. 28, 1944 about the Heath family of Stanstead, Quebec I found the following. William Heath says “Our eldest son, J.L. Heath, while stationed in England, visited Mazing, which is on the edge of Epping Forest, near Stanstead, in Essex; he found it a lovely country but no relatives, which is not to be wondered at when we remember that our ancestors left there ten generations ago.” So the Heaths did come from very close to Stanstead, England and went to Plymouth, NH before coming to Stanstead, Quebec Canada. There is a place named Morgan a few miles south of Stanstead in Orleans County Vermont. An Index to Canadians married in Derby, Vermont to 1860 lists a marriage for Rachail Morgan of Barnston, Quebec to Russell Fletcher of the same place on Aug. 10, 1859. (Very possible there is a connection to this couple). There are Morgans all over the lower part of the province.
