Notes for Peter Morgan: This man is Paul Morgan's g.g.g.g. grandfather. and was b. Ca. 1745 either in Bucks Co. PA, near Dover, Del. or in Maryland. His parents could be Isaac Morgan and Sarah ____?____. This has been deeply rumored. Peter Morgan was known to be around Bucks Co. PA Ca. 1780. Then he turns up in about 1790 in Rock-bridge Co., VA. married to a Mary/Vansandt. This last name yet to be proven correct but looks good since my g.g.g. grandfather. was named Vansandt Morgan.This Peter Morgan also turns up paying taxes on property in 1790 near Milford Delaware on the Mispillion Hundred He did have a brother named Nathaniel and possibly one called EVAN. He also had land in TN near FALL BRANCH. He sold this land to his second oldest son Gabriel Morgan and gave some to his other sons. He died in May 1819 in Greene Co., Ohio and is buried in Bath Graveyard near Dayton, Ohio next to a United Presbyterian Church. I have a Copy of his Will and an 1816 letter to Gabriel in TN. So Peter Morgan was literate. He has several horses and seemed a man of some money. His family line seems to be closely tied to the Vansandts from early times. This being a Dutch family makes me think it would tie in with the Dutch people in PA or Delaware. It is also rumored that Mary Vansandt may have been his #2 wife. Charles Morgan his #1 son was b. 1770 in Pa. and #2 Gabriel was also b. in Pa. 1771. Cornelius b. in PA John b. 177 in Pa. but Vansandt being the last son was probably b.. in Va., TN. or OH.
