RE: Sarah L. Morgan
I am looking for the parents of Thomas (Tom) Morgan
b/ ca 1863 d/ possibly bef Nov 1896 in Jones Co, MS who m/ ca bef Mar 1866 (assuming 9 months before 1st child born) Lela Josephine Moffett (1866 Clarke Co, MS-1953 Laurel, Jones Co, MS).

With a name like his, I don't have much to go on other than his approximate age and where he / his wife were known living.

I found at least one public tree that showed his parents were William Gaines Morgan (1831 SC-1910 Beekman, Morehouse Parish, LA) and Sarah Lott (or Sarah LOTT Watts) (1833 GA-1899 Runnelstown, Perry Co, MS), but am not sure the accuracy of that information. If correct, they married in 1849, so a ca 1863 birth would make them probably have quite a few kids or else he might have been a few years older than my estimate.

I also could only ID 2 likely candidates for that Thomas in earlier census records, 1 being b/ ca 1863 son of a William and Sarah Morgan (who fit the names above) in Perry Co, MS and one b/ ca 1863 in Attalla Co, MS, son of Amanda W. Morgan. Based on those locations, both somewhat close to Jones Co, MS, either could fit.

They aren't in my direct line, but in the direct line of one of my DNA matches and we don't yet know our connection.
She knew nothing about her dad's side of the tree until I managed to find info on him and trace her tree for her.
But her Moore father and these Morgans have been somewhat more difficult to trace back than others. Based on the known surnames in her tree thus far, I suspect our connection is probably through the Moores or Morgans, especially how common the surnames are, yet I have no known direct line Moores or Morgans myself (and I have a pretty hearty tree).

My maternal cousin's mother is my biological aunt and we have Galloways, but my cousin's father has a Galloway line that married into Morgans in TN. They are James L. Morgan (ca 1805-1893 Monroe Co, TN) & Matilda Caroline Galloway (ca 1804-1890 Monroe Co, TN).

My great uncle always told my aunt that her husband's Galloways were related to ours, but he didn't saw how or how he knew that, so I can't be sure. Even if they were, that Morgan line would not be a known direct line for me, but if my DNA match descended from them, then she could have Galloways we don't yet know about.

If you happen to learn anything else about these Morgans, especially if this Thomas is their son, please let me know.

Thanks

Sarah L. Morgan
I saw the flowers and note you left for Sarah L. Morgan, #34922140 and was wondering if you knew anything of her son, Thomas M. Morgan b/ ca 1863 (from the 1880 Perry Co, MS census)?

Or do you know anything more about the orphanage where the children were sent or where I could find more about it?

I think this Thomas M. Morgan might be the husband and father of family I am researching; possible husband of Lela Josephine MOFFETT and father of Irene MORGAN.
I don't have a marriage date or location for them, but it has to be before ca 1887 (based on the dates of their known children) and probably married in Jones Co, MS where Lela was living with her 2nd husband, Benjamin NORTON and children in 1900. (In 1880, Lela was living with her parents,
Miller Francis Moffett and Deborah Ann McCrae / McCray / McRee in 1880 Clarke Co, MS). So it assumed also that Thomas died before 1900. (However, since his daughter, Irene later separated from her husband and remarried, it is possible that he and Lela split vs. him dying). I cannot find a grave or any other information on the Thomas Morgan, husband of Lela that I am researching.

The only reason I know Irene MORGAN (Moore) Angelini's father was a Thomas (Tom) Morgan is because of her listing in the AL Deaths and Burials Index online at Ancestry which names both her parents.

I don't descend from this line directly to my knowledge, but I helped a DNA match find her bio father (Irene Morgan's 1st husband) and partially trace her family tree which includes these people. I don't yet know how she and I connect, but because I found a half sister of her deceased bio dad who tested and confirmed their relationship, I know that I match Irene MORGAN somehow, but not sure if through the Morgan side or the Moffett side.

Thanks

RE: McCay
Hi Beverly! So nice to hear from you! I don't really have any new info on Daniel S. McCay, but would love to ask around in the McCaysville area and find out if there are any Civil War stories about the family. We don't have any that were passed down, and it would be interesting to hear one or two. Maybe if I ask around someone will know where he is buried. I haven't had much time for genealogy in the last few weeks because we have a new grandbaby! She was born Wednesday, and is beautiful. We love our little Ellie! Hopefully I'll be back to researching soon, as all the showers, birth, etc., are over now. You asked about where our McCay line settled, well my dad grew up in Morganton, GA (near Blue Ridge), as did his brothers and sisters. They are all in the Atlanta area now and have been for years. There was no work up there, so in the 1950s and 60s most everyone, even my grandparents, moved here for work. That's where I was raised, and still live in Gwinnett County. Good to hear from you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

RE: Pvt. Abner B. DuBose
Beverly,
The only information I have on John and Jane Nichols is that they married August 12, 18160 in Jasper County, Texas. My direct ancestor is Abner B. Dubose and I have more information about him than anyone else in that generation. Good luck finding info on your side of the Duboses. Sorry I didnt have any more info.

Abner B.'s father was Ruben M. Dubose but I have no mother's name. Ruben's father was Peter Dubose from South Carolina. Abner had a brother named John married to Jane Nichols.

RE: McCay
Hi Barbara,

I wish I had some stories from Daniel and Rhoda McCay, but nothing has survived from them at all. We don't even know of their death date or where he was buried. All I know about Daniel S. McCay's death is that he was alive in 1861 per the Fannin County Muster Roll for men over 45, but not listed in the Fannin County 1863 tax list. So he must have died between those years. I"m still looking for his gravesite.

So glad you enjoyed your trip to Georgia! The mountains are beautiful here. I hope you can visit again.

Thank you, Beverly. I have been to Copperhill Cemetery, but not to Mobile. A couple of weeks ago, I found Harbert Thomas McCay's first wife, Telitha Francis, buried at Kingtown Baptist Church in McCaysville. I"m still looking for Daniel S. McCay's grave.

RE: Gillis
unaware of an alvin. My grand uncle was Melvin Gillis but he is still living. His siblings are: Elvis, Burl, Mary Lois, Bernice, and Levada Gillis. They were raised by their Mom and Dad Lela Valentine and Tillman Gillis. However, I cant trace Tillman's parents or siblings because we were told he was raised by his step-dad and mom Mary Gillis. (Hale was supposedly the step dad's name)for 13 years I have tried to connect the dots, but no success yet.

I knew that William had died on Swan Lake in Jefferson County, but I have not been there yet to photograph his tombstone. I was not aware he died in a boating accident. I had assumed they had moved there to be near Cordie's sister and her family. They all split up after their parents died and all but my Mary spent a portion of their lives in Jefferson county.

Was the sister of my great great grandmother. I am still searching for the grave of William S. Herring, Cordelia's husband. I know the county and area, but not the actual cemetery. If I find Helen's grave, then I will have all of the siblings accounted for that reached adulthood. Wish me luck.
