Notes for H
ENRY MORGAN:
Henry Morgan, the 5th child of Col. Morgan Morgan, married, Deborah, a sister of his brother Charles' wife. The old record book of Morgan's Chapel (now in the possession of a relative in Washington, D.C.) used for recording vital statistics, contains the names of three children of Henry and Deborah Morgan: Ruth (?) the entry being timeworn, Catherine and Sarah; Ruth and Catherine being baptised August 10th, 1760. They all removed to South Carolina with brother, Charles and sister, Anne Paxton, before the time of the Revolutionary War."
RE: French Morgan, page 94.

Other sources state his birth as 1730.

"In the first census of the U.S., taken in 1790, in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, is found one Henry Morgan with a family of ten children, five boys and five girls, but names are not given.
There is little doubt but that this is our Henry Morgan. Many efforts have been made to locate descendants of this branch of the Family in the Carolinas, but with indifferent results. No doubt many of this family have been contacted, but how are we to know. Several individuals have been interviewed who believe they are of the Henry Morgan clan, being able to trace their line back to Colonial Virginia, there to lose it without being able to connect up with any of the Virginia family of Morgans. The descendants of Henry Morgan constitute the third lost tribe of the Morgan family."
R: French Morgan, pages 94-95.

Dale Dover gives the following information from Anita Leigh Parham Adair.
Henry Morgan born 1727, in Christianna, Delaware married Deborah Poole, born 1727 in Rowna, Delaware. They moved to Spartanburg County, South Carolina before the Revolutionary War, and he later was shown in the 1790 census of South Carolina as still in the Spartanburg County area. There were 8 children from this marriage. Henry is listed on the 1790, 1800, but not the 1810 Spartanburg, SC census. Joseph Morgan and Hannah Dossett Morgan, and the one year old son, George Washington Morgan moved to Gwinnett County, Georgia in 1811. Source: Paul Morgan.

Another Morgan researcher Joy K. Morgan, wife of Handsel Morgan of Buford, GA, Gwinnett County. List the following children of Henry. These were listed on the 1790 Spartanburg County Census:
Sarah;
Catherine;
Ruth;
Mary;
Elizabeth;
David;
Joseph; (Anita's and Dale Dover's GG Grandfather moved to Paulding County, GA.)
Morgan'
Henry, Jr.;
William;

Joy states that Henry was a Judge when county formed.
Joseph Henry is Handsel's GG Grandfather.
RE: Joy K. Morgan

Henry Morgan, the fifth child of Colonel Morgan, married Deborah -----, a sister of Charles wife. The old record book of Morgans Chapel (now in the possession of a relative in Washington, DC) used for recording vital statistics contains the
names of three of the children of Henry and Deborah Morgan: Ruth (?) the entry being timeworn, Catherine and Sarah; Ruth and Catherine being baptized August 10th, 1760. They all removed to the South together some short time before the
Revolution.

In the first Census of the U.S., taken in 1790, in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, is found one Henry Morgan with a family of ten children, five boys and five girls, but names are not given.

There is little doubt but that this is our Henry Morgan. Many efforts have been made to locate the descendants of this branch of the Family in the Carolinas, but with indifferent results. No doubt many of his descendants have been contacted,
but how are we to know. The descendants of Henry Morgan constitute the third lost tribe of the Morgan family.
