About Benjamin Morange

Benjamin Morange arrived in New York about 1815. His distinguished services as Minister from France to Spain under Napoleon I. insured for him a hearty welcome, and he was one of the most respected and useful members of the Hebrew community. He became known in the course of time as the inventor of oil silk, in the manufacture of which he became extensively engaged. Henry H. Morange, the eminent lawyer of later years, was his son. One of his daughters, Galathe, married Solomon Menken, of Cincin- nati ; another, Cornelia, was the wife of Michael De Young, of Baltimore ; Betsy, a third daughter, was the wife of Zadok A. Davis, the prominent author of a Masonic manual, while Eliza, a fourth daughter, married Charles Newman, the father of Lieutenant-Colonel Leopold C. Newman, who fell in the Civil War.
