Re: Wm Davis & Ann Morgan Merthyr-Maesteg-Martins Ferry, OH
Glad you found a good job as not too many left today. I have had offers for Chicago but I am looking for a warmer place to work as I am tired of all this cold weather.
Yes I have made some new discoveries on oue Morgan's using our DNA but it still does not lead me to James Morgan father' I don't know if you saw any of my posting's on Col. Edmond Jones of Orange but his DNA is a 25/24 match with my cousin Doug Morgan. and what was interesting was he is on a Deed with Hardy Morgan of Orange, NCand they share a Saw Mill together there in about 1780. Edmond is related to Sugar Morgan and their mother last name "Sugar" in Essex VA. before moving to NC in the 1730's. Edmond Jones would have to be a Morgan or either he was born a bastard, and maybe of John Morgan who died 1733 of Essex VA or Jones would have had to used the "Morganonic nameing system", used back before coming to America in the 1700's. This could be hard to trace back to Wales. Also We have about 1750 Henry Morgan of Chowan who married Mary Hopkins who's mother was Mary King and this line I belive to be maybe a father or brother of our James who married Elizabeth and was from Edgecombe and Elizabeth Parish 1750's was also tied Hardy Morgan in Orange, NC. A descendant of Hardy Morgan, Solomon Morgan gained all of Hardy's land when he died but lost it when he posted bond for the Sheriff of Orange Thomas King who jumped bail and went to TN after cheeting all his friends.
Well not much to go on, but these familie's do tie into our DNA line but not perfect so they must be cousins.
