Birth: Jun. 27, 1920
Clark County
Washington, USA
Death: Dec. 14, 1980

Josephine County
Oregon, USA

James Morgan was the fifth child, and only son, of James Arthur Morgan and Arnettie Ann Mayes.

As a child he was known by his middle name of Ward. After serving with the Civilian Conservation Corp in his late teens he obtained the nickname of "Smoky" (from his work in helping to fight forest fires). Later in life his friends and family mostly called him either "Morgan" or "Smoky"--rarely did he go by the name "Jim".

On June 14, 1941 he married Ida M. Williamson in Hynes, California. They had two children.

For most of his life he either drove truck or worked in construction.

He was in the Army during World War II -- serving in the European Theater of Operations as a mechanic and driver.
