RESEARCHER: Excerpt from Virginia Genealogies; Genealogical Publishing Co., Vol IV; Submitted by Mrs. Robert C. Bannerman; E-mail from Lynda to Dale Morgan; 25 Feb 1998; Extract: Charles Morgan had a son Daniel Morgan who went to Mason County, KY and in the Court of that county on Jan 10th, 1820 proved that Armistead H. Morgan and Susannah Fike, late Susannah Morgan, who at present is the wife of Elijah Fike are the reputed and only children and heirs-at-law of Jeremiah Morgan, deceased, an Officer of the Revolutionary War and reputed brother of General Simon Morgan, deceased; which is ordered certified to the Secretary of War. Mr. P. M. Hamer, of National Archives states: "The records of the General Land Office now in the National Archives show that the Commonwealth of Virginia issued military bounty land warrant 6439 for 2666 2/3 acres on April 14, 1821, to Armistead H. Morgan and Susannah Fike, the children and heirs-at-law of Jeremiah Morgan, deceased, for the latter's services as an ensign of the VA Continental line. Armistead H. Morgan and Susannah Fike did not use this warrant to obtain a patent to land, but on May 1st, 1821, assigned their right and title in it to Daniel Morgan of Mason Co., KY.......The identification of Daniel Morgan is made clear when in Mason Co., KY at Washington on Jan 11, 1832, in an affidavit, he stated that he was the son of Charles Morgan (heir-at-law of his brother John, Ensign of 13th Virginia Regiment and son of Simon). He desired to obtain an assignment of the lands on Warrant 3874, for another 2666 2/3 acres to which Ensign John Morgan was entitled and who had died in the war.
