    I will, in the first place, that the mansion place on which I now live be divided as follows: The division line to commence at the point where my middle fence intersects the fence of George James' field, thence up the said middle fence between my meadow and my wheatfield through my wood-pile to the gate, thence to the barn above the lane, thence along the calf pasture fence above the spring until it strikes the middle fence called the lime-keen fence thence up the same until it strikes the line between my land and that of James M. Alexander.

    I give and bequeath to my son-in-law, Abraham McLellan in fee simple, to him his heirs and assigns forever, the Northern division of my mansion place, the division to be by the line above described.

    I give to my son George W. Morgart, during his natural life, the Southern division of my mansion place. After the death of the said George W. Morgart the said division of my place is to descend to my Grandson Morgan McLellan to him his heirs and assigns forever. Should my grandson die between my son George, I wish the said bequest to be equally divided between the brothers and sisters of the said Morgan McLellan at the death of my son George.

    I desire and order that Abraham McLellan shall have and enjoy the use of the spring & spring house on the Southern division of my mansion place. The said McLellan to pay half the necessary repairs.

    If the wife of said George should not survive him then at his death the whole of said property to go to the said Morgan McLellan.

    My bedstead and bedclothes now in my use I give to my grandson Morgan McLellan.

    I give and bequeath to my son George and my son-in-law McLellan my wind mill my threshing machine and all my wagons to be equally enjoyed between them, each one paying half the expenses necessary for repairs.

      DEATH OF A REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIER

      DIED - On Monday the 16th of November inst., in Colerain Township, Bedford County, PETER MORGRET aged 88 years, 6 months and 28 days.

      The deceased was born in Sussex county, New Jersey, on the 18th of April A.D. 1758. In 1765 he was taken by his parents to Loudoun Co., in the state of Virginia - here he lived until after the close of the Revolutionary War. He entered the Patriot Army soon after he arrived at the age of seventeen - was a Lieutenant in one of the Virginia companies and was stationed in Virginia all the time that he spent in the service - was in no engagement except that of York-town - was present at the surrender of Cornwallis and saw him offer his sword to Gen. LaFayette thinking it more honorable to surrender to a French Nobleman than to a "Rebel General". He also saw LaFayette refuse the sword and turn the attention of Cornwallis to Gen. Washington by saying "This is the Commander of the day - give your sword to him", Cornwallis politely complied with the direction.

      In 1783 he moved from Virginia to Bethel Twp. in this county, and in 1785 to Providence Township where he resided until the year 1831, when he moved to Colerain Township where he resided until the time of his death. Eight of his children out of a family of twelve survive him. He has now living more than sixty grandchildren, and more than forty great-grandchildren. He was respected and esteemed by his neighbors - and was for some years a member of the Baptist Church and died in the hope of a Blessed Immortality.

    Notes 
    • 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.

      That he entered as a volunteer in the fall of 1777, as a private in a company of Infantry commanded by Captain Spur, Lieut. George Kilgore, Ensign Spencer Wigginton,

      That he joined said company at Leesburg, Loudoun County, Virginia,

      That they marched through Fredericks Town, Maryland, then by Smith? York and Lancaster, then to Perkcoming? where they joined the main army commanded by his Excellency, General George Washington, immediately after the battle of Germantown, thence to White Marsh.

      That, after remaining doing duty under the command of the Officers aforesaid, for the term which said companies had volunteered, the said companies were discharged by Col. Crawford with the thanks of the commanding officer in the neighborhood of Brandywine.

      That he then returned to his residence in Loudon County aforesaid and afterwards in the month of August or September 1781, he again volunteered in the same company under the same Captain, Lieutenant and Ensign and the same colonel and marched as a Sergeant in said Company.

      That they marched from Loudoun County aforesaid to Fredericksburg and to the combined Army, then at Glostin Court House, that the day after their arrival there was a skirmish with the Enemy.

      That he remained with said army doing duty in said corps until after the surrender of Lord Cornwallis and then assisted in guarding the prisoners surrendered at Gloucester as far as Noland's Ferry.

      That after his term of service had expired he was with the rest of said company discharged at Noland's Ferry. That his said services at both periods exceeded six months as he verily believes as a volunteer aforesaid...

      That he never had a written discharge nor did he know of any of the men receiving a discharge and that he believes each term of his said service was three months.

      He has a record of his age by his father, which is now in his possession.

      That Luke Fetters of Bedford Co. is acquainted with his services.

      Spencer, Iowa

      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-

      Peter Morgert
