Morgan died at sea, possibly on his first voyage to America. If so, then Susannah was born posthumosly. Or he might have been a sea Captain and died on a later voyage. Morgan's widow later married a man named Clark. Susannah married Ezekiel Knowlton on September 29, 1728 in Manchester. They moved to Shrewsbury just before the birth of their first child. Ezekiel and Susannah had nine children, all born in Shrewsbury.
