Albert Morley, deceased, - Among the old families closely associated with the early growth of Painesville is the Morley family. Albert Morley, deceased, the head or founder of the family here, was born in the town of Brutus, Cayuga county, New York, October 21, 1797, and came to Painesville in July, 1837. He was a man of sterling worth and a great force of character. He died July 12, 1883, at the age of eighty-six. His wife, Esther Healy, was born in Charlestown, New Hampshire, February 14, 1798. A woman of a broad, sanguine and sympathetic nature, her influence was not only deeply impressed upon, but extended far beyond, the circle of her large family. She died April 22, 1889, at the advanced age of ninety-one. Eight sons and two daughters were born to them.
Of the four surviving children, J.H. Morley, of the J.H. Morley Lead Company, now lives in Cleveland; G.W. and E.W. Morley, of the Hardware Company of Morley Brothers, in Saginaw, Michigan; while J.R. Morley, connected with the banking and other interests, occupies, with his family, the old homestead in Painesville.
