Save The Date!! 109th Morgan Reunion! August 13, 2016
The 2016 Morgan Morgan Reunion will once again be held at Pricketts Fort, Near Fairmont, WV.
Morgan Morgan Descendants Reunion: The descendants of Colonel Morgan Morgan and his wife Catherine Garretson Morgan who live in the Marion County, West Virginia, region have been gathering annually for more than a century. They share a pride in their heritage and in the contributions of their ancestors to our nation.
The reunions have been held in various area locations over the years, including Bridgeport, Norwood Park, and Winfield. Often the family met at the Mt. Zion Church pavilion where so many prominent Morgan family members worshipped and where several who have since passed away lie in the nearby cemetery. The well-known and highly celebrated Mt. Zion Choir provided musical entertainment at the 1918 reunion held at Norwood Park.
In 2007, the reunion celebrated its 100th anniversary and began a new
tradition of meeting at Prickett’s Fort State Park. The festivities of

Note About The history of the Morgan reunions: Reunions were not held each year, but when it was discovered that 2007 would be the 100th, that's when we changed the format & went "all out" to make it an historic event. From the covered-dish dish dinners at a community center (before the 100th) to a Prickett's Fort setting with 600 people, special music and speakers, an historically accurate catered dinner, displays--all of these features are part of #100-16th, and hopefully into the future.
