|Birth: ||Aug. 4, 1874|
|Death: ||Sep. 21, 1875|
Daughter of a Civil War Pvt. John Easton Morton and Margaret Jackson of Fort Scott, Bourdon County, Kansas.
At the time of death, the family residence was on 213 S. Ramsom, Fort Scott, KS in 1875. Date of the actual burial was on the 22nd of September in 1875.
Little is known about Susan, but from being a relative researching her Morton family she is buried near other members of her family; a grand niece "Rene" (Morton) Beadell, a sister Nellie, a brother John Quin, and her mother Margaret (Jackson) Morton.
Susan Mary Morton is listed as the 3rd child out of 10 children being recorded in John & Margaret's family bible. She will not be listed in the John's 1898 Pention record as one of the living children, because she died before a application for pention was submitted.
A letter of inquiry was sent and replied from the Evergreen Cemetery on her grave; location, burial date and including the uses of her middle name, confirmes this to be John's daugther.
Susan's ancestors are recorded to have came from Prince Edward, Virginia. From what we know of this branch, it was her grandfather family that first moved to Greenup Kentucky where her father John was born. Then looking for work John, moved his family to Fort Scott,KS where Susan was born.
