Family tradition is that Susan buried both of her children by herself with the help of a slave because of the fear of contracting the fever that the children died from. She buried them with her husband on their land which eventually became the Danville Cemetery and is now known as"Old Danville Cemetery" aka Shepard Hill. She used to sit on her front porch and stare out towards the cemetery where her husband and two daughters were buried.

She ran a hotel in Danville after the death of her husband.

[1237] John Henry was an educated man. He was county surveyor of Hanover, presiding magistrate, and Colonel of Militia.

House of Burgesses, 1st Governor of Virginia, & Senator.

Is said to have removed to Virginia from England in 1739. In April, 1733, his brother, Patrick Henry, an Episcopalian minister, also came over.

The two brothers were very much attached to each other and ever afterwards lived not far apart. They were cousins of David Henry, who went from Scotland to London at the age of fourteen, and became a journeyman printer in the same office with Benjamin Franklin. He married a sister of Edward Cave, the found of the "Gentleman's Magazine," in London.

David was for more than fifty years associate editor of the Magazine, and in that publication describes his Henry kin as "more respected for their good sense and superior education than for their riches, as at every neighborhood meeting they were among the foremost."

[1245] Patrick Henry was born 29 May 1736 at Studley in Hanover Co., Va. In March 1775, Patrick Henry urged his fellow Virginians to arm in self-defense, closing his appeal (uttered at St. John's Church in Richmond, where the legislature was meeting) with the immortal words: "Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Gentlemen may cry peace! Peace! But there is no peace! The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the North will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death."

He became the spokesman of the southern colonies in the stirring period that led to the Revolution. After the war, he aided in drawing up Virginia's state constitution in 1776 and was the first elected governor of the State of Virginia.

He was twice governor of Virginia, was a member of the House of Burgesses, champion of independence, and is remembered mainly for his famous speech before a meeting of the Virginia. assembly in Richmond on March 23, 1775. He was a strong advocate of states rights.

An Historical Sketch of Scotchtown, Home of Patrick Henry 1771-1777

"Patrick Henry was born in 1736 at Studley in the eastern end of Hanover County. At age eighteen he married Sarah Shelton of nearby Rural Plains, Va. She was the daughter of John and Eleanor Parks Shelton, owner of Hanover Tavern which was, and still is, located across the road from Hanover Courthouse."

The pamphlet then writes about their home in Scotchtown and says:

"There are a number of portraits in the mansion. Among the most interesting are four primitives, done by unknown artists, of relatives of Patrick Henry's first wife, Sarah Shelton. They are likenesses of Major Thomas Shelton, a first cousin of Sarah Shelton, who served with Lafayette in the Revolution; Sarah Miller Shelton, Major Shelton's third wife; Marry Massie Shelton, daughter of Major Shelton and his first wife, Cecelia Dabney; and Joseph Shelton, who served as a scout with Lafayette, a bachelor brother of Major Shelton."

From "History of the American Nation" by William J. Jackman (9 Volumes), Volume 8, The Builders of the Republic

Patrick Henry was born at "Studley," Hanover county, Virginia, May 29, 1736; son of John and Sarah (Winston) Syme Henry, and grandson of Alexander and Jean (Robertson) Henry, of Scotland, who came to Virginia prior to 1730, and of Isaac and Mary (Dabney) Winston. John Henry was a member of the Church of England, a classical scholar, and a brother of the Rev. Patrick Henry, first rector of St. George's parish, Spottsylvania county, and ultimately of St. Paul's parish, Hanover county. His mother was a Presbyterian, a sister of Rev. William Robertson, of the Old Grey Friars Church, Edinburgh, and cousin of Rev. William Robertson, the Scottish historian. After Patrick was ten years old, his father was his only tutor. He became proficient in Latin, gained a little knowledge of Greek and was a good mathematician. He was well versed in ancient and modern history when he was fifteen, and had acquired some knowledge of the French language. When eighteen years of age he established with his brother William, a country store which they conducted unprofitably one year and then wound up the business. He was married in 1754 to Sarah, daughter of John Shelton, also of Hanover county. He made a poor existence by farming and was frequently helped by his father. To add to his misfortunes, his dwelling house was burned, together with his furniture. He then sold some of his negroes and with the proceeds purchased a stock of goods for a country store. Two years' experience found him in debt. He thereupon commenced the study of law, and within six weeks after taking up "Coke upon Littleton" and "Digest of the Virginia Acts," he appeared before Peyton and John Randolph, George Wythe, Robert C. Nicholas and Edmund Pendleton, at Williamsburg, to be examined for admission to the bar. The Randolphs signed the license, but Wythe refused, while Nicholas and Pendleton, on promise of future reading, also signed the license. Henry appears to have been sensible to his deficiencies, for he continued his studies some months before beginning to practice. On November 3, 1763, he was retained by the colony in the celebrated "parsons cause," involving the constitutionality of the "option law," also known as the "twopenny act," passed by the Virginia legislature in 1757. He discussed the mutual relations and reciprocal duties of the King to his subjects and of the clergy to their parishioners, and when he declared that the King who would insist on such a principle as advanced would, instead of remaining the father of his people, degenerate into a tyrant and would forfeit all his rights to the obedience of his subjects, the murmur of "treason" ran through the court-house. When the jury brought in a verdict of one penny for the plaintiff, the people bore the young advocate on their shoulders in triumph around the court-yard. Patrick Henry, in the Hanover court-house, had struck the keynote of the American revolution. In 1765 he was elected to the house of burgesses. He took his seat May 20, and met all his examiners of two years before except John Randolph, besides many other distinguished statesmen of Virginia. Nine days after he had taken his seat he offered resolutions denying the right of Great Britain to enforce the Stamp Act in Virginia. Peyton Randolph, Pendleton, Wythe, and others opposed the resolutions, but after what Jefferson characterized a "most bloody" debate, Henry carried his resolutions by a majority of one. It was in this debate that he electrified the house with "Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First his Cromwell, and George the Third --" "Treason! treason!" re-echoed from every part of the house. Without faltering, but rising to a loftier attitude and fixing on the speaker an eye which seemed to flash fire. Henry completed his sentence, "may profit by their example. If this be treason make the most of it." From that moment Patrick Henry was the political leader of Virginia. In 1769 he was admitted to practice in the general court and attained eminence in criminal cases. In May, 1773, he helped in organizing and was a member of the committee of correspondence. In 1774 he was delegate to the Virginia convention, the first public assembly to recommend an annual general Congress. He was a delegate to the Continental Congress, 1774-76, and opened his first session by a speech in which he declared, "I am not a Virginian, but an American." He served on the committee to prepare the address to the King, but his draft was too advanced for the conservative party, and the address was modified. When the proposition of Joseph Galloway for a plan of reconciliation with England was before Congress and apparently had the sanction of that body, Mr. Henry led the opposition and was the only one to speak against it. The vote of one colony defeated the measure, and Patrick Henry alone arose to the occasion that precipitated the war. He moved before the Virginia convention, March 23, 1775, to put the colony in a state of defence preparatory to war which was threatening. The delegates met in St. John's Episcopal Church, Richmond, and Mr. Henry for two days listened to the proceedings toward an amicable settlement of the colonies and England. He foresaw in any compromise acceptable to the King, absolute submission that would be little less than slavery, and he prepared a set of resolutions providing for an immediate organization of the militia and the placing of the colony in a condition of defense. The reading of these resolutions alarmed some, who asked him to withdraw his resolutions. Instead of this he pronounced his immortal oration, closing with the sentence, "I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" The Virginia convention of 1775 made him commander of all the Virginia forces, and commissioned him colonel of the First Virginia Regiment. When the Virginia troops were taken into the Continental army, Congress commissioned a subordinate, brigadier-general, and offered a single regiment to Colonel Henry, who declined any commission from that body. He was elected to the Virginia convention of May, 1776, charged with "the care of the republic," the royal governor having fled. This convention framed a new constitution and elected Henry the first governor of the state on the first ballot. He was re-elected in 1777, 1778, 1784 and 1785, and in 1786 declined a reelection.
In 1777 he planned and sent out the George Rogers Clarke expedition which conquered the northwest. He served in the Virginia convention that ratified the Federal constitution, and after vehemently opposing it as dangerous to the liberties of the people, he offered amendments to the instrument which were partially adopted. In 1794 he declined the appointment of United States senator, made by Governor Henry Lee, and withdrew from public life. In 1795 he declined the position of secretary of state in President Washington's cabinet, in 1796 the position of chief justice of the United States supreme court, and the nomination for governor of Virginia, and in 1797, the mission to France offered by President Adams. In 1799 he allowed himself to be elected to the state legislature in order to oppose the Virginia resolutions of 1798, but he died before taking his seat. His first wife died in 1775, and October 9, 1777, he married Dorothea Spotswood Dandridge, a granddaughter of Governor Alexander Spotswood.

Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, Volume II, I--Fathers of the Revolution
His life was written by William Wirt (1817); by Alexander H. Everett in Sparks' "American Biography" (1844-48); by Moses Coit Tyler in "American Statesmen" (1887), and by his grandson, William Wirt Henry (3 vols. 1891-92). His body lies in a grave on the estate in Charlotte county, where he formerly fived, and the simple gravestone is inscribed with the one line, "His Fame His Best Epitaph." He died at "Red Hill," Charlotte county, June 6, 1799."

[6449] Education Pioneer

John Morgan founded Morgan Commercial College, which taught many prominent early day Utahns

Last updated 06/26/1998, 12:01 a.m. MT

By Dennis Lythgoe, Deseret News staff writer

His male students included Heber J. Grant, Orson F. Whitney, Mathias Cowley, J. Golden Kimball, James H. Moyle, Joseph T. Kingsbury and Brigham H. Roberts.

Some of the women at his school were Ruth May Fox, Dora Stringham Ashley, Minerva Hinckley, Lelia Tuckett Freeze and Mattie Bailey.

John Morgan, a pioneer of early Utah education, brought these and numerous other Utah students under his wing at Salt Lake City's Morgan Commercial College.

Morgan, who was born in 1842 in Indiana, farmed until the age of 20, then enlisted in the Union army, where he served honorably until the end of the Civil War.

Afterward, he moved to Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and enrolled as a student in Eastman's Commercial College. After graduation, he accepted a contract to drive a herd of Texas longhorn beef cattle from Kansas City to Salt Lake City.

The Great American Desert appealed to Morgan, so he stayed, operating his college first out of the old Deseret Museum Building, then relocating to the southwest corner of Richards and South Temple.

The college included Utah's first free public library and reading room.

Because interest in a business education was keen, Morgan soon had so many students he was forced to move to a more spacious two-story building at 257 S. Main.

When Morgan married one of his students, 16-year-old Helen Melvina ("Mellie") Groesbeck, her father gave them a block of land as a wedding present. So in 1869, Morgan built a new college at 144 W. 100 South.

The college thrived from 1867 until 1874, when it closed due to intense competition from the University of Deseret, soon to become the University of Utah.

Although founded before Morgan College in 1850, the University of Deseret initially struggled, then took a 16-year hiatus until Morgan College's success inspired its comeback.

At its peak, Morgan College had 700 students, compared with the University of Deseret's meager 200. As principal, Morgan freely spread such pithy words of wisdom as: "Do not allow the long winter evenings before you to be thrown away; or worse, do not allow yourself to be drawn into the company of the vicious, within the walls of drinking saloons and billiard halls."

When Morgan College was founded, there were no other schools in the territory offering education above the elementary grades. When the college first opened, the subjects taught were bookkeeping, grammar, spelling, mental and practical arithmetic, commercial and international law and business correspondence.

Although not a member of the LDS Church, Morgan lived in the home of LDS Bishop Joseph L. Heywood of the 17th Ward. Some of the leading citizens of the territory were uneasy that many young LDS men and women were attending a school administered by a non-Mormon.

These concerns were alleviated in November 1867, when Morgan was baptized into the LDS Church.

Besides Morgan himself, Morgan College had seven teachers, whose teaching methods were highly practical. It took a student from six months to two years to complete a course of study.

Periodically, eminent businessmen, bankers, lawyers and merchants gave lectures to the students.

The college maintained miniature grocery stores, dry goods stores, brokerage houses and a bank to enable students to dabble in business life. If a student wanted to operate a grocery store, he did so, buying merchandise at wholesale and selling it at retail.

After the college closed, Morgan served in the territorial Legislature, then as an LDS missionary and later as president of the Southern States Mission.

Finally, he spent 10 years as a member of the LDS Church's Council of Seventy. He died unexpectedly at the premature age of 52, after suffering for several weeks with typhoid-malaria.

On May 8, 1959, the eloquent and charismatic Morgan was honored by his son, Nicholas G. Morgan Sr., when a Vermont granite monument to his memory and to that of Morgan College was unveiled at 257 S. Main in front of S.H. Kress Co.

A fountain adorned each side, and on top of the monument was a bust of Morgan, sculpted by Ortho Fairbanks.

Two bronze plaques were embedded in the base, one showing a picture of the historic institution, the first commercial college west of the Mississippi, and the other recounting its brief history.

Karen Matthews, a granddaughter of John Morgan, remembers a day several years ago when she noticed Morgan's head had disappeared from the monument.

"I was very upset. I called the mayor and asked 'Where is the bust of John Morgan?' "

No one knew. About a year later, Matthews' cousin, Bud Morgan, got a call from someone who said he had the bust. He said a friend had picked it up at a garage sale, then gave it to him when he moved to California.

Sure enough, family members recovered the bust, in surprisingly good shape, from a home on the Avenues.

Although the Morgan family made certain the head was fastened more securely, the monument had to be removed during the recent construction of the American Stores Building.

So Matthews is planning the return of the monument to its rightful home on Sept. 12, with most of the students' names permanently etched into it.

"I thought it would be fun for people to know if their ancestors went to the commercial college," says Matthews.

Ortho Fairbanks has redesigned the monument, with a marble base. He replaced the fountains on either side with a young male student and a young female student.

As John Morgan once said, "A school room without order is a public nuisance."

From the University of Utah Marriott Library

John Morgan fought in the Civil War as the Color Sergeant for the 123rd Regiment of Illinois during the last two years of the Civil War, 1862-1864.

Morgan's unit fought in three preliminary battles near Stevenson, Alabama, before the great battle of Chuckamanga in Georgia. John Morgan played an important part for which he was given official recognition. The library has a large collection of photos of John Morgan.
