Bristol County, MA Biographies

Hussey, Mrs. Elizabeth R. The late George Hussey, jr., died in New Bedford, May 25, 1872, in his forty fourth year. He was in company with his father, George Hussey. He was not a native of New Bedford, having been born in New York city in 1828, a son of George and Hetty (Howland) Hussey, and being a man of engaging manner and sterling character, his demise, which came in the prime of life, was greatly regretted. His father engaged in the shipping business in New Bedford in the early forties and developed a large interest, principally in merchant ships, and when George, Jr., reached his majority, he became a member of the firm. In November, 1855, Mr. Hussey married Elizabeth Rodman Morgan, who survives him, a daughter of Charles WaIn Morgan of Philadelphia, who settled in New Bedford in 1819 and became an extensive owner of whaling ships. They had four children who now survive: Charles M., Emily M., Alice, who married Henry M. Plummer, of New Bedford, and Rev. Alfred Rodman Hussey, pastor of the First Unitarian Church of West Roxbury, Mass. Mr. Hussey came of one of the oldest of New England familes, being a direct descendant and seventh of the line of Christopher Hussey, who was a clergyman, a son of John of Dorkin, England, who came to Salem, Mass., about 1630. Most of his descendants affiliated themselves with the Society of Friends.
