Title Thomas Morgan, Man of Faith and Courage
Description My sister. Mary Jane, told me about my grandparents. "\ didn't know my Grandmother Morgan, as she died before 1 was bom But our mother told me she was a lovely lady, very petite, big brown hair. She was a wonderful, caring mother, and homemaker She died at the age of 53. her death hastened by the sudden death of their fifth child, Charles, who was killed in a sand pit, November 17, 1883.

According to my family. "He had beautiful flower gardens, fruit trees, currant bushes, and gooseberries. His bam was always full of hay He raised grain for his animals and chickens, horses and cows." My sister, Mary Jane told me, "I liked to hunt the eggs for grandfather and to go to the store for him. Often, when passing his home, I'd go in to help him if 1 could. He was very lonesome, but always busy "I remember when I was about 10 or 12 years old, the grasshoppers were destroying all the crops in the lower fields, south of 68
