Morgan left home when he was about 17 years old. He was married twice (that we know of), to an unknown woman (possibly named Pearl Browning) and then to Katherine Nordrum. It is thought that he had two children. A girl named Pearl, and a boy named Marion Allen Patterson. Later, Marion changes his name to Melvin Allen Nordrum. This may be at the urging of his mother, we are not sure. But we know that Morgan leaves the family in about 1915. He is living near Seattle in 1920, probably working on steamer ships. He seems to be living both in and out of the country from the late teens until the late 1930's. Recent research has uncovered letters from Morgan to his sister Julia from 1932 and 1938. During the 1930's he stays at the Rainer Hotel in Portland, Oregon when he is in the US. He is also in Portland for the 1940 census, retired it seems. He dies in 1951. I've ordered his death certificate to see if he was buried somewhere.
