Morgan Young Jr. and his wife Jane Losey Young. They are buried together in the Pretty Prairie Cemetery located in Howe, Indiana. Morgan was born January 1762 in New Jersey. His parents came from Scotland to settle in the New World.
Morgan Jr. was around 14 years of age when he joined the cause and served as a water boy for General Washington and his officers. During the deadly cold winter, Morgan Jr. was sent home to outfit him with warmer clothes. His mother spun the cloth and sewed a new set of clothes for Morgan before she promptly sent him back to the battlefront. Morgan's military career consisted of fighting with General Sterling on Staten Island, fought against the British during the hard winter of 1779, and "went over the ice" of the Delaware.
After the war, Morgan married Jane Losey who was from Holland. He moved his family from New Jersey to Pennsylvania; from Pennsylvania to Ohio; and finally from Ohio to LaGrange County, Indiana. His children were Abraham, John, George, Henry, and Losey. His descendants still live in Lagrange County.
