HI! You'll be wicked excited to know that someone "wrote the book" on the Morang family. If you find yourself in the Portland area, there is a copy in the Portland Room at the Port. Pub. Library. Seeing that you have Hoyt in your name, you may find it doubly resourceful. Two Morang boys changed their names to Hoyt (one being my ancestor). The book doesn't clearly connect beyond the name change, but I've done some research in that regard. Here's a link to the GoogleBook... http://books.google.com/books/about/A_genealogical_register_of_the_...

I just did a quick check in the GoogleBook search and the marriage of John to Grace is in the book.

Thank you Robert - I have seen the family book on the Morang's. A lot of great information was found. I greatly appreciate any and all help in my journey in researching my family tree.

Hello Morangs.  I may have some interesting information for you.  I am a member of the Washington, Maine A C Campmeeting associattion and have been working on researching the families that owned cottages and memebers.  Just thought I would give you the following information:  We have a J.G. Morang of Gardner, Me, (RD 9)   who was a member from August 1909 to August 1920.  He could have been a memeber after 1920 but I don't have that record.  Also, Mrs. P. A. Morang of Gardner, Maine from 1909 to 1920.  ALSO we have a cottage we call the Morang cottage.  Do you have any old pictures of the campmeeting.  It would look like a place in the woods that has a lot of little camps, most of them all in a row.    Would love to hear from you, would be so excited if this was connected to your family!  Brenda Weeks Stinson

I tried to send you something a little bit ago but it seemed to go awry.  I noticed the name, Hodgkins, as one in which you were interested.  My 8th grade teacher (the best teacher I ever had and I had some good ones) had the name of Ella Hodgkins  This was in Augusta but she was originally from Jefferson, Maine.  I know she died in her 90's although I thought she was ancient when I had her as a teacher!  She was principal and 8th grade teacher of Farrington School in Augusta.  I have seen her gravestone in Jefferson.  Hope this might be of interest!  Noreen Jenkins Blair

Just in case you're interested, Joseph Morang's (and his wife and kids at the time) name change to Hoyt is listed here: Roberts, Richard P. "Name Changes of Maine Residents 1803-1892" The Maine Genealogist Vol 20, No.2 May 1998 pg 89 (Compiled by author from "Acts and Resolves")
In nearby pages and volumes are shown some other Whitefield area Morang's who changed their names to Bailey.

Brenda, I came across this post while searching for any new information on my Morang line.  My great great grandfather was James Gilbert Morang and his wife was Phebe A Morang.  Could be coincidence but those initials stood out to me.  I am not sure if they were in Gardner during that time but he died in 1925.  Interesting!

That doesn't sound like much of a coincidence! :) J.G. was born in Whitefield and lived in Chelsea, both towns right near Gardiner.

Yes, Robert, that is my James! My grandfather lived with him for a time. It appears after his father remarried.
