Obituary from THE HENRY BULLETIN, Martinsville, Va., Fri., Aug. 27, 1920, p. 1, col. 3 [edited], (Roanoke World). Captain W. H. Morgan, the oldest member of the Floyd County bar, died at his home in Floyd Friday morning after a protracted illness. Captain Morgan was an ardent member of the Methodist church. In his early manhood he entered the Confederate Army as orderly sergeant of "The Clifton Grays," of Campbell County. The company was mustered into service as company C and became a part of the 11th Virginia Regiment, Kemper's Brigade, Pickett's Division. Private Morgan soon became captain of his company and served in all the battles in which that noted regiment was engaged until his capture in May 1864. Captain Morgan, while true to the Union after the Civil War, never forgot the cause for which he fought. Some years ago he wrote "Personal Reminiscences of the War of 1861-5," a publication which was widely circulated (excerpt of book follows). Mrs. J. W. Simmons of Martinsville, is a daughter of Captain Morgan and was with him in the latter days of his illness and was at his bedside when he died. Other Martinsville relatives of the deceased attended the funeral.
