He appears several times in the Prince William order books between 1752 and 1757 as a witness, surveyor of highways, or appraisor of estates. By the death of his father about 1766 he became Charles Morgan Sr. and is so listed in the 1770 Quit Rent Roll.

Simon, son of Charles and Ann Morgan was content to remain in Fauquier and let his brothers roam afield. In 1784 tax list he has 486 acres. In 1787 (Fauquier D. B. 10, p. 47) Joseph Blackwell and Ann his wife conveyed to him 80 1/2 acres bought by said Blackwell of Thomas Edwards, the land adjoining said Morgan, Waugh Darnell's original patent, Jonas
pg 275
Williams, etc. The will of Simon dated Nov. 10, 1792, proved Feb. 25, 1793, is in Fauquier W. B. 2, p. 260. He devised to son Joseph 162 acres, being 1/3 "of the plantation whereon I live," also 77 1/2 acres in Fauquier purchased of Mr. Joseph Blackwell, also 200 acres on Pignut Ridge; to son Charles 113 of the tract of 486 acres whereon I live, the line to be in accordance with the desire of my late wife whose property it was; to son Simon the remaining third of this tract adjoining his brother Charles, acording to the desire of my late wife whose property it was; son Jeremiah, daughters Sucky Clark and Caty Bradford; to William Cockrum, son of my beloved daughter Rosey Cockrum 10 pounds cash; and to daughter Rosey Cockrum 1 shilling. Sons Simon and Joseph to be exors."

2Tyler's quarterly historical and genealogical magazine - v. 25 (1943-1944) - v. 25, no. 4 Apr 1944, pg 275. "In Simon Morgan's will the intriguing phrase is the division of the home place "according to the desire of my late wife whose property it was." In an attempt to identify her, the following notes are given. In 1798 her sons Joseph and Simon sold 80 1/2 acres lying on the southeast side of Piney Ridge, formerly Waugh Darnell's land (D. B. 14, p. 195), in 1804 her son Charles sold 462 acres "taken up by Waugh Darnell" (D. B. 15, p. 636). Waugh Darnell in 1724 took up 1,205 acres on Indian Cabin Branch and in 1726, 916 acres on the north branches of Cedar Run south of Pignut (Fauquier during the Proprietorship, pp. 100, 103). He died 1726 in what was then King George Co., leaving widow Elizabeth (King George O. B. 1721-1734, p. 325). In Prince William Quit Rent Roll for 1737, Waugh Darnell's orphans are charged with 2,121 acres, evidently the sum of the two grants just mentioned. In Prince William W. B. C, p. 476, is the will of Thos. (x) Deakens, who, like the Darnells, had lived in the parent county of Richmond (Tyler's vol. 4, p. 229). In this will, dated Feb. 10, 174 3/4, he names three legatees, John Wright, Margaret Morgan and Morgan Darnell. Also in Prince William W. B. C, p. 473, is the will of Jonas Williams dated Jan. 30, 174 3/4, in which he devises to son David 111 acres adjoining John Wright, Jr. and Simon Morgan. None of the foregoing is absolute proof, but it seems likely that Simon married a daughter of Waugh Darnell."
