Calvin Morgan
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 3, 1807
North Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 14, 1864
Wabash County
Illinois, USA

Calvin's name may have been John Calvin Morgan. He was born in North Carolina or Tennessee but probably somewhere near Carter County, Tennessee. His mother's name may have been Ally Morgan but this is not proven. Some people have a David Morgan who died in Georgia listed as his father. This is totally unproven and as far as I am concerned not true. He married Nancy Ann Gupton Sept 9, 1828 in Carter County, Tennessee. They moved to Wabash County about 1830 with Nancy's parents Jacob Gupton and Elizabeth Bass. They were the parents of Elizabeth Morgan Walser, Hiram Morgan, George Washington Morgan, Mary Anna Morgan Blakney, Temperance "Tempy" Morgan Walser, John Calvin Morgan, Alice "Ally" Morgan and an infant daughter.

From the Combined History of Edwards, Lawrence and Wabash County, Illinois
"Jacob Gupton with a family of 3 children came from North Carolina in 1825 and became a permanent resident of the precinct. With him came his son-in-law Calvin Morgan, whose possessions consisted of a little pony and fifty cents in money. By the diligent employment of his time in winter at shoe making and in summer at farming, he accumulated a good deal of property. Two sons survive him, George in Lancaster and Hiram in Lick Prairie."
