Certainly there was an Isaac Morgan in that regiment. He also served in the 10th North Carolina Regiment (Continentals). According to Robert K.

After the war, he married Judith Smith (see below) on July 29, 1789 in Davidson County, Tennessee. They were the parents of at least seven children: Benjamin (1791), William (1793), Elizabeth (1795), John Henry (1796), Samuel (1800), Joseph Smith (1804) and Phobe (abt. 1807)."
John Isaac Morgan was portly and fine looking. He lived at Clarksville, Montgomery CO, TN. He served as a private in the Continental line of North Carolina during the revolutionary war. For his services he was given 640 acres on the south side of the Cumberland River on May 10, 1793. He enlisted in 1792 and served 18 months as a PVT. in the 10th NC regiment. He and his wife came from Fauquier Co., Va. to Cotton Ginport on the Tombigbee River in Monroe County,Miss., possibly about 1835.
