The marriage of Colonel Morgan Morgan and Catherine Garretson Morgan
produced 8 children; one daughter and 7 sons. Their first child, James,
died at the age of 16. Anne, their only daughter, married twice. She
married Nathaniel Thomas and later Reuben Paxton, eventually moving to
South Carolina. Next came David who spent most of his life in Marion
County, WV. The family of Charles, the fourth child, also moved to South
Carolina along with Charles’ brother Henry. Evan, the only unmarried
child of Morgan and Catherine, lived and died in Berkeley County, WV.
His son Zackquill, founded Morgan’s Town (later Morgantown) in
Monongalia County, WV. Morgan Morgan, II, the youngest child, spent his
entire life in Berkeley County, WV.
The mystery surrounding the families of Anne, Charles and Henry
have led them to become known to Morgan descendants as the “Lost
Tribes”. Nothing is really known about their lives after their
move to South Carolina. The lineages of these branches of the
family are a source of great curiosity to the descendants of the
other Morgan children. We are always searching for information
about the families of Anne, Charles and Henry Morgan and
encourage descendants of these Morgan children to share their
family tree stories.
