Obit. request: Harriet 'Hattie' Morey (nee SAYLES); wife of Adam C. Morey

OBITUARY REQUEST: Harriet 'Hattie' Morey (nee SAYLES); wife of Adam C. Morey


Greetings,

Could someone please help us?
We are searching for information regarding the offspring of Hiram Sayles (b. abt. 1798 in Manilus, N.Y.), and Hannah Rickard (b. abt.1804-06, New York).
*Their daughter, Harriet ''Hattie'' Sayles, married Adam C. Morey.

Attached below are two obituaries of family members, which provide bits and pieces of information about Hattie [Sayles] Morey:

NUMBER 1:
• 1911 Obituary of ADAM C. MOREY (husband of Hattie Morey).
According to the 1911 obituary of Adam C. Morey, his wife (''Hattie'' SAYLES Morey) was still living at that time.

NUMBER 2:
• 1913 Obituary of WILLIAM SAYLES (brother of ''Hattie'' SAYLES Morey).
According to the obituary of William Sayles (son of Hiram & Hannah Sayles; and, brother of Hattie Sayles MOREY) the Sayles family migrated from New York to Ohio in late 1837 or early 1838, when son William Sayles was about six months old.

HARRIET SAYLES, daughter of Hiram & Hannah Sayles, was born in 1838, in Ohio.
Gleaned from additional snippets of information that I recently discovered in the obituary of William Sayles (followed by a search of 'free' online census data), I deduced that Harriet Sayles married a gentleman by the name of ADAM C. MOREY.

In the 1913 obituary of William Sayles (attached below), his sister, "Mrs. Harriet Morey," then resided in Baldwinsville, N.Y.

A sampling of other New York census data is also attached below, listing Hattie / Harriet & Adam C. Morey in Syracuse, Onondaga County, New York.

In addition, I found Adam and Harriet listed on the 1880 New York census (Onondaga County) as ''Hattie S. and Adam C. MOORAY''.

We have very little additional information about Harriet "Hattie" SAYLES Morey.

My husband is the great grandson of William Sayles (Hattie's brother).
I would love to hear from anyone with connections to this Morey / Sayles line; and, would greatly appreciate any information that anyone might be able to offer about Adam & and ''Hattie'' Morey.

*I would also greatly appreciate a copy of the OBITUARY for Hattie [Sayles] Morey, if anyone knows of where and/or how to obtain a copy.

I sincerely thank you for any information & help that may be offered...


Peace & blessings,

Cathy Porter-Maynard (In Minnesota)

November 1911



''BUSINESS CIRCLES MOURN DEATH OF ADAM C. MOREY
For Fifty-three Years the Deceased Had Been Active in City Life


The death of Adam C. Morey, age 74 years occurred at his home in
Baldwinsville on Friday. For the last 53 years Mr. Morey has been one of the
best known business and real estate men in this section. His entrance into
business life in Syracuse was made with J. P. and J. Wagner, who were
running a grocery and general store, where he received nine years
Education. Shortly after he left the Wagner Brothers, he went to
Geddes, where he started business for himself and progressed rapidly for 15
years, until he outgrew the possibilities there and left about the year 1870.
Then for a few years he tackled the newly opened oil fields in Pennsylvania
making a success, buying and selling tracts of land. When he returned to
this city he took charge of the Business of N. Stanton Gere until he opened
a real Estate Office about 2 years later. Real Estate was a groove which he
fitted to perfection and he remained in that business for the rest of his
career.

If has been truthfully said that he handled more real estate than any other
man in Syracuse and for some time was agent for T.M. Flagier, finally
closing out his business for him. Thirty one years ago he bought a farm
near Baldwinsville and has lived there ever since, at the same time
maintaining and office in Syracuse.

Mr. Morey's death is considered a distinct loss not only by his intimate
friends, but by the men with whom he had business relations. He was born in
Herkimer and was prominent in the Masonic circles.

The funeral will be held from his late home in Baldwinsville, Monday, at 2
PM.
He is survived by his wife [''Hattie'' SAYLES Morey], and four children, E. C. Morey of
Pittsburgh, PA., Mrs. F. E. Luley of St. Paul Minn., Mrs. Frank R. Walker of
this City, and W. H. Seward Morey of Washington, D.C., Mrs. C. M. Conger of
this City is a sister of Mr. Morey and a brother James I. Morey of South
Boardman, Michigan. ''

OBITUARY OF WILLIAM SAYLES


William Sayles was the son of Hiram and Hannah [Rickard] Sayles, his birthplace being Cazenovia, Madison county, New York. He first saw the light of day on May 17, 1837, and passed from this life March 6, 1913, at the age of 75 years, 9 months and 19 days, at his home in Richland township, Union county, South Dakota, following an illness of lagrippe and complications.

When he was six months of age the family emigrated from the state of New York to the State of Ohio, locating in Wayne county. They afterward moved to Holmes county, Ohio, where his father died when he was about sixteen years of age. Soon thereafter he left home, first going to Michigan, then to Omaha, Nebraska, where he joined a mining party and drove an ox team overland to Pike’s Peak, Colorado, remaining there about three years and engaging in mining for gold and prospecting.

In 1861 he returned to Omaha to offer his services in time of his country’s need in the great civil strife, and enlisted in the [Company B], Fourth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, serving three years. He was with his regiment in several important battles, among them Pea Ridge, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and Sherman’s March to the Sea. He was twice severely wounded, but recovered and served out his full time of enlistment.

After the close of the war he returned to Medina county, Ohio, and lived with his widowed mother until 1868, where he became acquainted with and married Miss [Irenia] Albina Sargent on New Year’s eve, 1868. In the year 1869 they decided to emigrate to the west. On January 20, 1869, they started by team from Lodi, Ohio, and their long, tedious overland journey ended March 12, that year at Elk Point, Dakota Territory. They located in Richland township, Union county, on a homestead, which has ever since remained the family home. They were accompanied on the trip by Mr. Sayles brother-in-law, Jesse Fetterman. At the time of their arrival there were only five organized counties in Dakota Territory, the settlements were few and far between and Indians quite plentiful. Through the grasshopper scourge of the ‘70’s, the floods of the early ‘80’s, the drought of summer and the cold and blizzards of winter and all the other privations and vicissitudes of pioneer days, when from a wilderness was carved out the heritage of peace, prosperity and plenty of these later days, Mr. and Mrs. Sayles were among those who pinned their faith to the future of this beautiful valley of the Big Sioux and helpfully and unwaveringly bore their share of the struggles of the early days. A man of undaunted courage, in whom the principles of patriotism were deeply imbued; lofty of character, with honesty and integrity as cardinal virtues; a reader and close student of current events, particularly political lines, being a Republican of the old school; a kind and loving husband and father; a loyal friend and neighbor; a good citizen -- William Sayles will be missed and sincerely mourned by all who knew him.

Besides his devoted wife he is survived by the following children, all of whom reside in the home vicinity: Mrs. Florence [Sayles] Huckert, Frank Sayles, Mrs. Lottie [Charlotte Sayles] Maynard, Miss Hattie [Harriet] Sayles, and [John] Sherman Sayles.


*Three of his sisters are also living: Mrs. Rowena [Sayles] Voorus of Oskaloosa, Iowa, Mrs. M.C. [Mary Charlotte Sayles] Fetterman of Union County, South Dakota, and MRS. HARRIET [SAYLES] MOREY of Baldwinsville, New York. A host of friends offer their sympathy to the bereaved family.


After a brief service at the home Saturday afternoon at 1 o’clock, the funeral was conducted in the Akron M.E. Church by Rev. L. Stuart. There was a very large attendance, especially of the older settlers, as a last tribute of respect. Deceased was a member of Biddlecome Post, G.A.R., of Akron [Iowa], and the local comrades and members of the W.R.C. attended in a body. He was one of the first members of the Masonic lodge at Elk Point [South Dakota] and a delegation from the order there and a large number of local Masons attended the service and exemplified the beautiful Masonic burial service at the grave. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery [Akron, Plymouth County, Iowa], beside his brother Jonas [Sayles], also a pioneer settler, who passed away a number of years ago.
