The relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the funeral from the residence of his son, Frank J Morgan, 42 Linwood Avenue, Bromley Place, on Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Interment at Greenwood Cemetery.
Trenton Evening Times 3 January 1919

John was probably the son of a John Morgan and was, according to family tradition, descended from Sir Henry Morgan, the famous pirate--though I've found documents that indicate Sir Henry never had any children. John worked as a jiggerman in a Trenton pottery. He married Lucy Gamble, possibly on 8 Aug 1871 in England, which would indicate his son James, b. abt 1869 in NJ could be an adopted son or a son of a previous marriage. He and Lucy had the following children: (?James), Anna, Emma, Mary, John, Jr., Samuel, Harry, George, Frank and Ruth.
