Joseph Morgan

1Tyler's quarterly historical and genealogical magazine - v. 25 (1943-1944) - v. 25, no. 4 Apr 1944, pg 272, 973 B2t 1967 v. 25 1943-1944. "The next we hear of him [Charles Jr.] is in 1796 (Fauquier Miscellaneous Records, p. 67) when his brother-in-law, Daniel Bradford, deposed that Charles Morgan Jr. bought a certain tract of land about "40 years ago," that he died when his son Joseph was under age, but that when Joseph came of age, he went to George Hardin and wife and made a second purchase of the tract, having been informed that his father had omitted having his deed recorded.

Joseph was now (1796) dead and his heir, Thornton J. Morgan, was a minor, Lewis Jennings being his guardian.

Other Fauquier records show that Joseph, son of Charles and Elizabeth Morgan, married Nov. 26, 1774, Elizabeth Bradford, daughter of Alexander and Jemima (Jones) Bradford, by whom he had issue, Thornton, J., Lisa or Eliza, Sarah and Joseph."
continued in record of his wife, Elizabeth (Bradford) Morgan.

Elizabeth Bradford

1Tyler's quarterly historical and genealogical magazine - v. 25 (1943-1944) - v. 25, no. 4 Apr 1944, 973 B2t 1967 v. 25 1943-1944. "Other Fauquier records show that Joseph, son of Charles and Elizabeth Morgan, married Nov. 26, 1774, Elizabeth Bradford, daughter of Alexander and Jemima (Jones) Bradford, by whom he had issue, Thornton, J., Lisa or Eliza, Sarah and Joseph.

Joseph died intestate about 1785 and the inventory of his estate was returned August 22, 1785, by Daniel Bradford, John Ashby and John Shumate. (Fauquier W. B. 2, p. 68.) In 1809 (D. B. 17, p. 492) Elizabeth Morgan, her daughter Eliza and son Joseph agreed on certain boundaries with Thomas Knox. The witnesses were William Keirns, Thomas Hord, Will Bradford, Charles Kemper and Lewis Sudoth. It would seem these were Joseph's widow and surviving children. Besides Joseph, whose line is traced in Mrs. White's "The Bradfords of Virginia," we know of no other children of Charles Morgan, Jr."

Historical Society's Bulletin, p.. 507, we are told that James Morgan married Elizabeth. daughter of Benjamin Taylor of Lancaster Co.; that he fought in the French and Indian Wars, and died 1763, leaving a daughter Elizabeth (July 21, 1759-May 30, 1860), who married John Kemper. ...

On July 23, 1765, his widow, Elizabeth Morgan, entered into a marriage contract with Henry Mauzy (D. B. 2, p. 345) who agreed to maintain two of the children of the said Elizabeth by her deceased husband, James Morgan, during their minority. Their marriage bond is dated the same day. In 1768 Henry Mauzy returned the account of James Morgan's estate (W. B. 1, p. 138)."
continued in record of her son, Spencer Morgan.
