RE : USS HORNET MUSEUM DEPT - WELCOME LETTER
I am so glad that you are considering the museum dept.
I certainly find it interesting and challenging working with the artifacts that come aboard the ship.
for you to get an idea of what you would be doing in our dept, I like you go to the PastPerfect Museum Software website (http://www.museumsoftware.com/) and download their "Free Trial Version" of PastPerfect version 4 and play with it a little.
PastPerfect is the application we use and you will be spending a lot of time in it, if you join us. I will tell you
that coming from an Oracle shop, I find this FoxPro application a bit limited in some respects, but it is not bad for what
it is and does. I do not expect you to learn how to use it through this trial version, only get a feel for it and the
level of detail it requires. I realize that it will take time and training for you to become proficient with it.
Once you've had a chance to look at it and feel that you can work with it, I will arrange for you to come in for hands on
training with either Jim or myself.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.

A Deed of Gift
Land and property records are
always interesting to study. People who have purchased a piece of property are often interested in knowing about the previous
owners and the property doesn't have to be one of those “George-Washington-slept-here” tracts
either. Lawyers and paralegals are always researching property records in conjunction with contemporary sales, estate probate,
lawsuits, divorce settlements, and for any number of other reasons.
Unfortunately, though, land and property records are among the least used by genealogists.
Part of the problem is that they appear to be intimidating, from the standpoint of both the legalese used in them and the
“cryptic code” of property descriptions and measurements--chains, links, rods, and so forth.
What I have found, however, is that land and property records can speak volumes about the buyers,
sellers, owners, and their relationships with others. Particularly important are those records that conveyed ownership of
all or part of a parcel of land from a parent to a spouse, son, daughter, or some other relative. These “deeds of gift”
are the subject of the "Along Those Lines . . ." column this week.
A Deed of Gift
Among the papers that my Grandmother Morgan had in her possession was a simple
handwritten document dating from 17 December 1883, a deed of gift from my great-great-grandfather, Goodlow Warren Morgan to
his only living son, Rainey Baines Morgan. Rainey was my great-grandfather. He was the youngest of four children from Goodlow's
first marriage. Both of Rainey's brothers, Samuel Warren Morgan and Solomon Goodloe Morgan, were killed at Gettysburg in July
1863. His oldest sister, Jennette Lee Morgan, was married to John W. Allen, and his next older sister had died on 16 August
1862, one week shy of her seventeenth birthday.
The deed of gift states that “the said G. W. Morgan having made a deed of gift to his
son R. B. Morgan of the home tract of land reserving the use right control and proffitts [sic] of said home tract during his
life and no longer. Now the said G. W. Morgan wishing to remove from the home tract to his Burch tract allies this my covenant
and agrees with the said R. B. Morgan that he shall retain the same control management & proffitts [sic] as though he
lived on the same home tract & if said G. W. Morgan should wish to return or move back to said home tract and occupy said
mansion house with all the rights & franchises heretofore mentioned he is to have perfect right so to do without the consent
of any one & at any & all times he is to have the free use of and control of all the fruits of all description grown
on the place.”
This didn't sound like much of a “gift” to me. It sounded to me as if the father
was moving out to another piece of property nearby and simply letting his son have a place to live. The father still maintained
control and obtained the profits from everything produced on the land, a farm in Caswell County, North Carolina. I had to
wonder why the document was even written.
Marriage Changes Everything
I began doing more research in order to understand Goodlow's
motivation for moving away. Born on 21 August 1813, Goodlow married his first wife, Mary L. Woods, on 19 December 1838, when
he was 25 years old. They produced the three sons and two daughters mentioned above. Mary died on 6 Sep 1882 at age 69.
In November 1883, Goodlow married a widow, Mary Cooper Murphy, aged thirty-eight. On 1 March
1885, Mary died while giving birth to their son, Bluford Warren Morgan.
Later, on 5 October 1893, Goodlow married again, this time to one Annie S. Murray, about whom
I know nothing more.
Goodlow died on 27 May 1895 and is buried in the Cooper Cemetery in Caswell County, North Carolina,
next to his second wife.
Reading the Clues
Property search research indicates Goodlow owned quite a bit of property
in Caswell and Person Counties at the time of his second marriage. The “Burch tract” he mentioned in his deed
of gift refers to a parcel of land he purchased some years before that was adjacent to the “home tract.” It would
appear that Goodlow decided to move to another home with his second wife, leaving his only child, Rainey, remaining at the
home place to occupy and manage the property. In fact, Rainey had been married in November 1871 and had three sons, the last
of which was born in November 1883. So, rather than turn his son and his family out, Goodlow opted to move with his new wife
to another piece of property.
The deed of gift was, then, an instrument that Goodlow used to protect his property ownership.
He did not want any encumbrance on it that might suggest that he had abandoned the property or had relinquished rights or
control to his son at that time. As it turned out, this was probably a good move because, on 13 September 1891, Rainey died
at age 39 of a septic infection.
Goodlow's estate records from 1898 are contained in Box 62 at the North Carolina State Archives. They indicate that he had a substantial estate consisting of properties, money, agricultural
properties and other assets. The estate was administered by his son-in-law, John W. Allen. His estate settled $150 in two
parts on his widow, Annie, "as agreed to in marriage contract.” A significant portion of his estate also went to the
support of his son, Bluford Morgan, who was the product of his second marriage. There are many entries in the estate's accounting
reports relating to payments made for clothing, board, books, and other materials for Bluford Morgan.
Such a Gift!
When working with wills and probate records that indicate that a surviving
spouse, son, or daughter may have been omitted or “slighted” in the bequests, consider that there may have been
some gift bestowed on them previously. A father may have made a deed of gift to a son upon his coming of legal age. He may
have given a son or daughter (or son-in-law) a parcel of land on the occasion of a marriage. There could be any number of
reasons for making a gift of land and/or property, and the practice was very common indeed in other times. Deeds of gift certainly
can tell us a great deal about relationships.
Whatever you do, get to know something about land and property records in the state, province,
or country in which your ancestors lived. There's nothing mystical about the measurement systems used when you apply a little
studying, and the records really do help put your ancestors in perspective. You'll learn about their exact proximity to towns,
roads, rivers, lakes, shores, and neighbors, and possibly a whole lot more. And that helps us bring them back to life.
Reading List Clarification
My column of 11 June 2004 included a review of Elizabeth Shown Mills' new book, Isle of Canes, and I gave this
book an emphatic thumbs-up.
In the review, I misspoke when I said, “It is based on some of her own ancestors' lives
and she the chronicle of their history has been calling her to write this book.” I received a warm e-mail from Elizabeth
in which she asked me to correct the record. “I don't descend from the Metoyers or Coincoin or her grandfather, the
African king,” she said. “My mother-in-law and my children descend from several of the French families in the
book to whom the Metoyers also trace. But we can't lay claim to the phenomenal heritage that is the Isle of Canes.”
And a phenomenal heritage it is. Thank you again, Elizabeth, for bringing this story to life!

MY TIME AND THOUGHTS
Apollo 11 was launched on a Saturn V on July 16, 1969 from Kennedy Space
Center in Florida. After 1 1/2 Earth orbits, the S-IVB stage was re-ignited, putting the spacecraft on course for the Moon.
The S-IVB was fired again once the CSM reached the Moon to insert the spacecraft into orbit around it. On July 20, Neil
Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin entered the lunar module (LM) Eagle and descended to the lunar surface. The LM landed in the Sea
of Tranquility with Armstrong reporting, "Houston, Tranquility Base here - the Eagle has landed." Armstrong stepped onto the
lunar surface several hours later stating, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind".
||Aldrin descended the ladder several minutes later. Both
astronauts unveiled a plaque on the LM descent stage with the inscription: "Here Men From Planet Earth First Set Foot Upon
the Moon", July 1969 A.D, We Came In Peace For All Mankind." The astronauts deployed the scientific instruments, took photographs,
and collected 22 kilograms of lunar rock and soil samples.The astronauts traversed a total distance of about 250 meters. The
EVA ended after 2 hours, 31 minutes when the astronauts returned to the LM and closed the hatch.|
||After spending over 21 hours on the lunar surface, the
Eagle blasted off. Once the LM had docked with Columbia, the two astronauts transferred to the CM, and the
LM was jettisoned into lunar orbit (the crash site of the Eagle on the Moon is still unknown). Three days later,
just before Columbia was positioned for re-entry into Earth's atmosphere, it was separated from the Service Module.
Apollo 11 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24 at 5:50 a.m. local time, after travelling over 950,000 miles
in a little more than 8 days. The splashdown point was 920 miles southwest of Honolulu and 13 miles from the USS Hornet.|
STATEMENT FROM CAROLINE KENNEDY
DONNER OF INFORMATION OF THE CORDS & STRAPS USED FOR APOLLO 11
I CAROLINE E. KENNEDY PERSONALLY KNOW THE DAUGTHER OF THE MANUFACTURE OF THE CORDS
AND THE MANUFACTURE WHO HELPED DESIGN THE STRAPS OF THE CAPSULE FOR THE SPLASH DOWN OF APOLLO 11
MY FATHER DOUGAL C. MACDONALD, ESQ KNEW THE HUSBAND OF THE DAUGTHER OF THE MANUFACTURE
OF THE CORDS AND MY MOTHER DIANE MACDONALD IS GOOD FRIENDS WITH THE DAUGTHER TO THIS DAY
Columbia floated down under its 3 orange & white parachutes, hitting
the water just before dawn and coming to rest in a Stable 2 (upside down) position. The astronauts triggered the release of
the three flotation bags, which righted the CM in about 7 minutes. The first member of the UDT-11 recovery team jumped from
helicopter #64 into the water and attached a sea anchor to the CM to keep it from drifting. Three more UDT swimmers then jumped
in and attached the flotation collar to stabilize the CM in the choppy water. They inflated and positioned two life rafts
- one for biological decontamination and the other for helicopter hoist operations.
||The possibility of the astronauts bringing a dangerous
Moon germ back to Earth was considered remote, but not impossible. At this point in the recovery, the UDT decontamination
specialist, LT Clancy Hatleberg, jumped into the water from helicopter #66 and swam to one of the rafts. He donned a special
Biological Isolation Garment (BIG suit) and then handed 3 other BIG suits into the spacecraft so the Apollo 11 crew could
put them on. These suits created an effective biological barrier for the astronauts who had come in contact with lunar dust
so any germs wouldn't spread to the recovery team.|
||Once the astronauts were "bagged," in their head-to-toe
garments, Hatleberg assisted each one through the CM hatch into the decontamination raft. After closing the hatch, he wiped
the 3 astronauts with a mitt doused with sodium-hypochlorite, a bleach-like agent, to ensure the outside of their BIGs was
decontaminated from any lunar germs. In turn, one of them scrubbed him. Hatleberg then wiped parts of the CM with betadine
to clean off any dust that might be present. NASA considered it very important to contain any possible outside contaminates
at the scene of the splashdown.|
||Hatleberg signaled CDR Don Jones, pilot of helicopter
#66 to position his SeaKing for the astronaut retrieval process. When the helicopter was hovering 40 feet above and slightly
to the left of the spacecraft, the air crewmen in the cargo hold lowered a Billy Pugh rescue net down to the raft. The 3 astronauts
were hoisted up one at a time and given a verbal physical check by NASA flight surgeon Dr. Bill Carpentier. When all 3 were
aboard, the helicopter flew 1/2 mile back to the Hornet and landed on the flight deck. President Nixon and his staff watched
intently from the ship's Flag Bridge.|
||Once Recovery One's engines were shut down and
it was configured for shipboard handling, all but one member of the SeaKing's crew exited. With the 3 astronauts and NASA
doctor in back, it was towed onto elevator #2. "Helo 66" was lowered into hangar bay #2 and towed to a position adjacent to
the Mobile Quarantine Facility (MQF). The astronauts exited into bright TV lights and cheers of hundreds of ship's crewmen.
They walked briskly about 30 feet to the Mobile Quarantine Facility, where they were locked in.|
||The astronauts replaced their BIG suits with NASA flight
suits and were given a more thorough physical exam by the doctor. Once they were ready, President Nixon descended from the
Flag Bridge and stood by the front doorway. There, with 500 million people around the world watching on live TV, the President
welcomed the lunar explorers back to Earth. The ceremony lasted about 10 minutes with a lot of light-hearted banter going
back and forth. The President remarked how the world seemed bigger now but that its population never felt as close together
as they did watching the mission unfold.|
||After the astronauts left the splashdown scene, the UDT
decontamination equipment was placed in the "decon" raft and sunk. Columbia was readied for its own retrieval. As soon as
President Nixon had departed, the 44,000-ton ship maneuvered carefully and crept alongside the 5-ton spacecraft.
Once the CM was abreast of the island superstructure, a shot line was thrown to the UDT personnel on top of the bobbing spacecraft.
Within a few minutes, the ship's Boat & Aircraft crane had "reeled" it near the starboard elevator and plucked it from
the tropic waters. The flight of Apollo 11 had ended.|
||The Command Module was lowered onto the starboard elevator
and its flotation collar removed. It was placed on a dolly, towed into hangar bay 2 and secured next to the MQF. Once a plastic
tunnel was put in place connecting the two, the Moon rocks were transferred into the MQF so they could be packaged for immediate
airlift back to Johnson Space Center. Soon thereafter, the rest of the dignitaries left and the USS Hornet sailed for Pearl
Harbor with a very unique and precious cargo!|
