Abraham was drafted and mustered in the Civil War on February 23, 1865, for one year at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania as a Private with Company "D" 79th Regiment of Pennsylvania Infantry. (Company "D" recuited in Washington County). The soldier contracted chronic diarrhea on the march between Richmond, Virginia and Washington D.C. by reason of exposured and heavy marching and that he was admitted to Carver General Hospital, Washington D.C., June 15, 1865 from Regimental Hospital for treatment where he died.

The National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia had no record of his burial as had recorded. Believed his widow had his body removed to old Morgart graveyard.

Abraham McLellan was born in Delaware. He came with an uncle, a Mr. Pierson, to Bedford County, Pennsylvania, when a boy, and he grew to manhood on a farm about three miles from Everett. Early thrown upon his own resources, he worked at anything that he could find to do, sometimes being employed as a farm hand, sometimes driving a team. When old enough to learn a trade, he served an apprenticeship at shoemaking, which he subsequently followed a number of years. After his marriage with Elizabeth Morgart, of Bedford County, he came to Colerain, where he purchased a good farm of two hundred acres, the homestead now owned by his son George W., and for about fifty-eight years, or until his death, in 1882, carried on general farming with good success. A firm supporter of the Democratic party, he too an active part in local affairs, and for a time served as Tax Collector of the township. For a number of years he was officially connected with the State militia as the head of a company, and was familiarly known as Captain McLellan. He was a Deacon in the Baptist church. Of his children the following-named survive: Mary, widow of John James, late of Colerain, Pa.; John H. C., also of Colerain; Josiah, of Somerset County, Pennsylvania; Thomas R., living in Ohio; and George W.

230 According to land records Peter, Sr. became a large landholder in Bedford County. By 1830 he had acquired "Rose" farm of 209 acres from
Frederick Beltz and then sold it to his son, Peter, Jr.. Also by 1830 he had acquired Abraham Miley's "Fancy" tract of 369 acres, McClellan and James - Waltman tract of 553 acres, and "Nosegay" of 209 acres. A total of almost 1,000 acres. He is also listed as owning a Grist Mill on 283 acres in southern Friends Cove just west of Rainsburg. The ruins of the mill race and mill structure are apparently still known as "Morgart's Mill".

Morgart Tavern was licensed for operation around 1770. It was one of the first hostelries on the Forbes Road. The present 14-room building was erected in 1791 of stone quarried nearby. Morgart's was a regular stop for stage coaches traveling Forbes (and later the Great Pennsylvania) Road. Stage coach drivers and cattle drivers slept in a loft above the tavern's kitchen. Private property.

The Morgart Tavern was constructed with stone from the quarry on the property. The quarry was located behind what is now Juniata Trading company. The tavern is made of two-foot thick stone walls, and it contains 14 rooms, with 4 fireplaces downstairs, one upstairs, and one in the summer kitchen. The current kitchen was once a loft where stage coach drivers and cattle drovers slept. Located directly adjacent to the Morgart Tavern is a smoke house/spring house combination, with the unique feature of having a concrete roof and wooden chimney. (Source: Koren B.

Dear Madam:

Reference is made to your letter in which you request the Revolutionary War record of Peter Morgart, born April 18, 1758, and died November 6, 1846 in Bedford County, Pennsylvania.

The data furnished herein were obtained from papers on file in claim for pension, S. 4591, based upon the military service of Peter Morgert in the Revolutionary War.

Peter Morgert (as his signature is shown in the claim) was born April 18, 1758 in Sussex County, New Jersey. The names of his parents were not given.

While residing in Loudoun County, Virginia, Peter Morgert enlisted in the fall of 1777, served three months as a private in Captain Spur's company, Colonel George West's Virginia regiment. He enlisted sometime in August or September, 1781, served three months as sergeant in Captain Spur's company, Colonel George West's regiment, and after the surrender of Cornwallis, assigned in guarding the prisoners to Noland's Ferry.

Peter Morgert continued to live in Loudoun County, Virginia, until in the year 1782, when he moved to Bedford County, Pennsylvania. He was allowed pension on his application executed November 26, 1833, at which time he was living in Colerain Township, Bedford County,
Pennsyvania.

The papers on file in this claim contain no discernible data in regard to the family of the soldier, Peter Morgert.

In order to obtain the data of last payment of pension, name and address of person paid, and possibly the date of death of this pensioner, you should apply to The Comptroller General, General Accounting Office, Records Division, Washington, D.C., and furnish the following data-

Dear Madam:

Reference is made to your letter in which you request the Revolutionary War record of Peter Morgart, born April 18, 1758, and died November 6, 1846 in Bedford County, Pennsylvania.

The data furnished herein were obtained from papers on file in claim for pension, S. 4591, based upon the military service of Peter Morgert in the Revolutionary War.

Peter Morgert (as his signature is shown in the claim) was born April 18, 1758 in Sussex County, New Jersey. The names of his parents were not given.

While residing in Loudoun County, Virginia, Peter Morgert enlisted in the fall of 1777, served three months as a private in Captain Spur's company, Colonel George West's Virginia regiment. He enlisted sometime in August or September, 1781, served three months as sergeant in Captain Spur's company, Colonel George West's regiment, and after the surrender of Cornwallis, assigned in guarding the prisoners to Noland's Ferry.

Peter Morgert continued to live in Loudoun County, Virginia, until in the year 1782, when he moved to Bedford County, Pennsylvania. He was allowed pension on his application executed November 26, 1833, at which time he was living in Colerain Township, Bedford County,
Pennsyvania.

The papers on file in this claim contain no discernible data in regard to the family of the soldier, Peter Morgert.

In order to obtain the data of last payment of pension, name and address of person paid, and possibly the date of death of this pensioner, you should apply to The Comptroller General, General Accounting Office, Records Division, Washington, D.C., and furnish the following data-
