Gouverneur Morris


American politician; he made no secret of his desire for an oligarchy, wanting a government by and for the wealthy. In 1778, as a delegate to the Continental Congress in charge of the "Committee on Style," at the convention, he wrote the final draft of the U.S. Constitution.

Morris died 11/06/1816 in New York.

Source Notes

Arthur H Blackwell quotes a record by his father in the family bible, "About half an hour after one of the clock in the morning in the year 1752, according to the alteration of the stile by act of Parliament." The family mansion was near present day Port Morris, in the southwest Bronx.

Wayne Turner writes 5/20/2013 that he has confirmed that the date should be 30 January, not 31, per the quotation from the family's Bible found on page 151 of Jeannie F J Robison & Henrietta C Bartlett, Genealogical Records: Manuscript Entries of Births, Deaths and Marriages, Taken from Family Bibles, 1581 -1917, 1917. This information is also found on page 6 of Max M Mintz's biography Gouverneur Morris and the American Revolution, which quotes Robison and Bartlett. The time would be LAT, which converts to an LMT of about 1:44 am LMT.
