Maria (Morgan) Woodbridge's Family

...Colonel George Morgan...was the great-grandfather of Mrs. J. A. (Laura Woodbridge) Gallaher of Marietta, her grandfather Dudley Woodbridge, Jr., having married Maria Morgan.  She gave the collection to her grandson, Charles Penrose, of Marietta, from whom the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society obtained it.

Blennerhassett, of Blennerhassett-Burr fame, bought his island in the Ohio River from Elijah Backus, Mrs. Gallaher's great-uncle, and was a business partner of her grandfather, Dudley Woodbridge, Jr.
