My Great great great great grandmother was Malvina "Viney" Morgan Maynor (w/o Hiram Maynor of York Dist. SC). She is 'disowned' in her Grandfather Peter Morgan's 1849 Will. Does anyone know (for sure) who her father is. We have made the assumption that she is the daughter of John Morgan & his first wife, Elizabeth.
Here is the Will of Peter Morgan:
