Michael REASOR Jr. 5th great grandfather

An incident in the life of Michael REASOR Jr. and his brother, Frederick, taken from the old family bible of Reuben Reasor...

Michael Reasor and his brother, Frederick had a ship fitted out and sailed to Germany where they obtained a cargo of one half million dollars worth of leather goods for the Revolutionary Army.

Upon their return voyage a violent storm arose, the ship and cargo were lost at sea. The Reasor brothers and their sailors were rescued by a Scotch vessel and taken to Philadelphia, Penn. Where they landed without a dollar.”
