RESEARCHER: N. Dale Morgan

1850, 1860 Census, St.Clair Co., Ala.
Land deeds St.Clair Co., Al.
Estate of Spencer G. Morgan, 1869.
Trout Creek Primativee Baptist Church founder, Ragland, Al, in book, From Trout Creek to Raglandd, by Rubye Sisson.

Spencer followed his wife Rutha to Alabama after some delay, possibly to sell their land in York County, SC. Rutha purchased their land from Edward Wester, who was an original settler of St. Clair County. This land is located over the small mountain south of Trout Creek Community, now the city of Ragland, close to the Coosa River. Settling on the land adjacent to them was his sister, Narcissa and her husband, Noah Daffron. Spencer's sisters Mary & Delilah Ann had preceed him to St.Clair County.

This researcher is still trying to find the maiden name of Rutha. It was in a bible owned by his son Jiles D. Morgan, and inherited by Elias P. Morgan. Elias unfortunately lent this bible to a friend for bibical reference work, and it was never seen again.

Spencer's third wife, Millie Stapp was a niece of William Stapp, who helped him found the Primitive Baptist Church in Trout Creek. A brother of William Stapp, is also an ancestor of this researcher. His last child with Millie was born posthumously. In 1855 Spencer G. Morgan and Noah Daffron are listed on a Court Docket for March Term of St. Clair County, where Samuel G. Morgan was suing Gray Barber and John Barber, father and son, who are also ancestors of this researcher.

There is a dispute in the family as to the number of children Spencer and Millied had. However, Spencer did marry S.A. McGuire on 21 March 1861, the ceremony performed by Matthew Lee, Justice of the Peace. Matthew Lee is also an ancestor of this researcher. No information has been found on what happend to S.A. McGurie, or of her family. If she is the mother of the below mystery children, where is the documentation. They are not listed as part of the Spencer Morgan family in the 1870 census. The child #2, Charles Morgan, lived near Hopewell Baptist Church, Rainbow City, Alabama. No proof of relationship has ever been found.

Peter Morgan and his sister, Mary Morgan Quinn, are listed as witnesses to the death and burial of Colonel Williams at the Battle of Kings Mountain, SC. Their home was next door to the neighbor on whose land he is buried, under a chestnut tree. The American Army camped at the spring of their father, Anthony Morgan, the night after the battle, and then quickly moved away, expecting an attack by Cornwallis. This is found in Some Heroes of the American Revolution.

Peter farmed on land south of Kings Mountain, between Buffalo Creek and Broad River. He lived a long life there. Several of his children migrated to Alabama.

First was his daughter Mary, with her husband, Thomas Camp, accompanying them was her sister Delilah. Delilah later married Samuel R. Lister in St. Clair County, Alabama. Then came Samuel G. Morgan, Elias, Anthony, Louisa, Spencer G. and Narcissa Adeline. Elias and Anthony settled in other counties of Alabama. Finally son John Came to Alabama after the death of Peter. Of the later bunch, Samuel, Spencer and Narcissa settled in St. Clair County.
