First - I am NOT a Morgan descendant...just an interested genealogist!
I would appreciate some assistance with the following:
Some lineage listings I have noticed on the net (etc.) show the wife of Daniel Morgan as "Abigail Bailey" but I have seen her last name listed as: Curry.In fact, I have seen her name written as: Abigail Baily Curry or Abigail Curry Baily.
The DAR (of which I am a member) has her last name listed as Bailey. They are usually very thorough when confirming the genealogy and admitting members...and if this is the case...why does there appear to be this conflict?
It appears to me that they had two daughters - Nancy Morgan who married Presley Neville and Betsy who married James Heard. One report mentioned that both Neville and Heard were also in the Rev. War.(?)
Another thing:One account has a son/Willoughby/supposedly (?) born out-of-wedlock and who (one account mentions) grew up in South Carolina...what happened to Willoughby and was this supposed son a reality?
None of the above has anything to do with the battlefield bravery of Daniel Morgan.
I am finding this gentleman to be a most fasinating individual and I am sure his descendants are proud of his many accomplishments!
And...he certainly has OUR admiration in South Carolina!
(We have a wonderful statue of Daniel Morgan in the downtown area of Spartanburg, South Carolina.)
