I think Carl still has some left. It is the John Morgan Family.
John came from Montgomery County, VA somewhere around 1818 and settled on the Barren Fork River near what is now the Cannon/Warren Co Line. I am from Allen Morgan, who first had property around Clairmont ? on the line. Then he inherited property on Locke Creek from his Father in Law, Ward Barrett Sr and moved there, probably about 1842.
I have Lemmons, Harris, Tenpenny, Vance, Carric, Shelton, Reeds and others in my direct line.
Carl's Morgan Book is three volumns and quite large. Carl comes from Elizabeth Morgan Lemmons, daughter of John Sr.
I was surprised when I did get the Books, how many Families in Cannon County I was related to. I would imagine many of you on here, I am related to. Better get off. They split my eye open last thursday and reconstructed it and filled it with oil and I was told no PC for a week by the DR. Can't help it. Addictive. Enjoy hearing from all of you since I do not have much Family left anymore. Long days in the house.
