This is a cenotaph memorial

Name of "Andrew Morgan" is recorded here as found on the engraved stone. Family says middle name is MORTON, and multiple records say Morton.

The 1880, 1870, and 1850 census states he was born in Ohio. His older children stated he was born in Tennessee. His siblings were from Rutherford County, Tennessee.

The monument photo is by the area that was the Old Pioneer Cemetery. Andrew is actually buried in the Evergreen Cemetery after the cemetery, where the railroad tracks of the Denver and Rio Grand Railroad were being built, had to be moved. All remains were relocated to the Evergreen Cemetery, which was few blocks uphill in Springville.

Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel, 1852

A biographical source published in 1913 mentions that the Hamilton family traveled in the 1852 Henry Bryant Manning Jolley company. The Hamilton's name is not recorded on either the published or handwritten roster of the Jolley company. It is not mentioned in any journal or narrative written by members of that company. It is possible that they joined the company after it left Kanesville and got left off the roster, but no corroborating contemporary evidence has yet been uncovered.
