Morgan, John Pen. 299 1786-1789
Soldier-2nd Virginia Regiment
Spotsylvania County--Caroline County
Revolutionary War Pensions-Virginia Me-Pr

On examination of John Morgan who says he was a soldier in Capt. Stokes' Regt.
commanded by Col. Buford's Regt. and that all the wounds he received-the wounds
thereon several of which in the head appear to have been extremely dangerous so
considerable pieces of shells have been removed. I think it very probable at
particular times/ which he says is the case/ his ____ may be affected: his right
hand, except the thumb and forefingers are greatly disabled; am of the opinion
he is entitled to as much pension as the law allows for any private, being
almost totally unable to labour. W. Foushes, Surg. May 30 1786

**note on bottom says that Morgan was in the 2nd Virg. Regt. and that the was
wounded in Col. Buford's Regt.
Signed by James Wood, late B. G. (Brigadier General)
