Obituary. Cedartown Standard, Oct 11, 1900. Cedartown, Polk County, Georgia. "Mrs. Minerva Morgan, one of Rockmart's most esteemed and venerable ladies, passed away Saturday evening, after having been in failing health for a long time. She was aged seventy-eight years, and was the widow of the late Benjamin Morgan. Hers was a long and useful life, and out of a large family of children four survive to mourn the loss of a devoted mother~Mrs. R. R. Thompson, of Cedartown, Mrs. John B. Jones, of Walthall and Messrs. Thos. W. and Geo. F. Morgan, of Rockmart. Mrs. Morgan was a daughter of the late Augustus Young, one of Polk's pioneer citizens, and her remains were taken to Young's for interment Sunday, the funeral being conducted at the home of her brother, Col. Jas. Young, and services being conducted by Rev. J. L Perryman. The deceased was for many years a devoted member of the Baptist church, and was a noble Christian woman. "She will be missed," has been said by many since her death. Always cheerful, she was ever faithful to administer to those who needed help."
