A History of Putnam Co (McClain) p. 15...Job Morgan came from NC about 1801 and settled on Spring Creek, then in the newly formed county of Jackson. He was the grandfather of the late Gen. George H. Morgan, prominent in Putnam Co affairs.

In 1805, Sally and Job were members of the Baptist Church at Spring Creek.

Family records show that Job brought a book with him to TN, with his name and a date inscribed, Job Morgan, Aug 3rd, 1802. It is assumed that he came to TN but not before the 1802 date. They were for sure in Jackson Co as early as 1805, according to the minutes of the Roaring River Baptist Church under date of First Saturday in Jan 1806, we read, "Received by letter Job Morgan and his wife.." The family stopped first on the Duck River, secured land and established a home, but after a time they moved on to Spring Creek, a tributary of Roaring River.
