Residence Note:
John was born & married in Gwennap. In 1828 he was mining at Tolcarne, 1/2 mile N.W. of Carharrack, & "The Portrait and Biographical Record of Willamette Valley" says his son John was born nr. Sunny Corner, a group of c.8 houses c.1ml ESE of Carharrack.

OCCUPATIONS:
BEF 1828-AFT 1828: Miner in Tolcarne.Occupation Note: Information from son's baptism record. Tolcarne is in Gwennap parish..
BEF 1841-AFT 1841: Mine Agent - copper in Bodmin.
AFT 1841-ABT 1845: Mine Captain in Bodmonic mines (Wis).Occupation Note: Dates, especially of his arrival in Wisconsin, are very approximate..
ABT 1845-BEF 1860: Mine Captain in Eagle Harbour.Occupation Note: "He was sent by an English company to Eagle Harbour, Michigan, where he opened the first copper mines of that vicinity. If accurate this account implies that he must have been in Michigan by c.1845..

GENERAL NOTE:
There are some interesting links (or are they just coincidences!?) between Captain John MORCOM and Captain Elisha MORCOM (b.1835) who was mine superintendent of the Soudan mine which initiated iron ore mining in Minnesota.1. Captain John's and Elisha's fathers were both mine captains in Gwennap. Several members of both families were living at Sunny Corner in 1841.2. The name Elisha occurs twice among John's siblings and twice among his brother William's children. John also had a son and grandson called Elisha.3. Captain John and Captain Elisha were both copper mining in Keweenaw Co., MI c.1854-56, the former having earlier established mining in the area.4. In 1884-87 Captain Elisha was Mining Superintendent at Soudan, and in 1889 he set up a brick factory at the same town. Elisha, the young grandson of Captain John, came from Wisconsin to Tower to work there as a lawyer between 1887 and 1891. Tower was only about three miles from Soudan.They may have shared a descent from Digory MORCOM who married in Gwennap on 15 Dec 1717 but this depends on a speculative identification of John's father William (05633) as the son of John MORCOM and Frances nee SAUNDERS.
