|HISTORY OF THE BOONE, BRYAN, MORGAN FAMILIES
By Roberta Stuart Sims
(Mrs. E. Kitteredge Sims)
of Shreveport, LA
George Boone was a weaver by trade and a Quaker by
religion. He was born in 1665 in the hamlet of Stoak
near Exeter in Devonshire, England. In his time the
Quakers were oppressed and George Boone therefore
sought information of William Penn, his
co-religionist, regarding the colony which Penn had
established in America. In 1712 he sent his three
children, George, Sarah, and Squire to spy out the
land. Sarah and Squire remained in Pennsylvania, while
their brother George returned to England with glowing
reports. On August 17, 1717, George Boone went first
to Abingdon, the Quaker farming community. Later they
moved to the northwestern frontier hamlet of North
Wales, a Welch community which a few years previously
had turned Quaker.
(Ref. "Pioneers of the old Southwest" by
Skinner ; 24-25)
George Boone's wife was Mary Milton Maugridge.
(Ref. "The Boone Bulletin" and "The
American Pioneer Records")
Their children were:
1. George -- born 1690 Married Deborah Howell
2. Sarah -- born ? Married Jacob Stover
3. Squire -- born about 1699 Married Sarah Morgan
4. Joseph -- born 1704 Married Cather ------
5. Benjamin born 1706 Married Sussannah ------
In 1718 George Boone took up 400 acres in Olay in
the subdivision to be later called Exeter and there
lived in a log cabin. He died in 1744. He left 8
children, 52 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren,
English, German, Welsh and Scotch blended into one
family of Americans.
Among the Welsh Quakers was a family of Morgans. In
1720 Squire Boone, a son of George and Mary (Maugridge)
Boone married Sarah Morgan. A Welch American planter
of note who came early to Pennsylvania was Edward
Morgan, the grandfather of two great Americans: Daniel
Boone of Kentucky, son of Squire and Sarah (Morgan)
Boone and Gen. Daniel Morgan, according to Quaker
records. (Ref. P.22 Boone Bulletin and American
Pioneer Records, Vol II 1934-39)
Every effort has been made to learn something of
the ancestry of Sarah Morgan, wife of Squire Boone but
without appreciable results. It is claimed, of course,
that Sarah's father was Edward Morgan of Gwynedd,
Philadelphia, PA., and her marriage record shows that
fact beyond all doubt. It is also reasonably certain
that her brothers and sisters were the young Morgans,
whose marriage records like her own, state that they
were children of Edward Morgan of Gwynedd. Beyond
these facts there is nothing authentic upon which to
base any statement connecting Sarah (Morgan) Boone
with any other Morgan family record. In "Life of
Gen. Daniel Morgan of the Virginia line" by James
Graham we find, "It is interesting to know that
these two famous fighters of the Revolutionary period,
Daniel Morgan and Daniel Boone were first cousins, but
we have found no adequate proof of this
The marriage of Edward Morgan's children into the
great Welch families indicates that they, Daniel Boone
and Gen. Daniel Morgan, are connected by blood.
Recorded marriages of Edward Morgan's children are
as follows: *
(*) There might have been other children.
1710 Elizabeth Morgan married Cadwallader Morris
1713 Margaret Morgan married Samuel Thomas
1718 Daniel Morgan married Elizabeth Roberts
1720 Sarah Morgan (born 1704) married Squire Boone
1721 John Morgan married Sarah LLoyd
1728 Joseph Morgan married Elizabeth Lloyd
1731 William Morgan (widower) married Catherine
(Ref. American Pioneer Records and The Boone
Bulletin Vol II, 1934-39)
It was in North Wales hamlet, Pennsylvania, that
Squire Boone met Sarah Morgan and married her in 1720
in a Quaker meeting house. Their children were:

7. Mary--born March 14, 1736; died 1819; married
William Bryan brother to Rebecca and Martha Bryan
8. George--born January 13, 1739; died 1820;
married Ann or Nancy Linville
9. Edward--born March 30, 1740 was killed at the
first Battle of Blue Licks, 1780. Married Martha
Bryan, daughter of Joseph and Alee Bryan and sister of
Rebecca Bryan, wife of Edward's famous brother Daniel.
From "The Wars of Kentucke" by Daniel
"My footsteps have been marked with blood. Two
darling sons and a brother have I lost by savage
hands. What thanks, what ardent and censeless thanks
are due to that all superintending Providence which
has turned a cruel war into peace. May the same
Almighty Goodness banish the accursed monster, War,
from all lands"
Note: Daniel Boone couldn't spell but certainly had
full command of the English language. (It is said that
his parents spoke beautiful English). His expression
of thoughts in all of his letters is splendid. Many of
his letters are now in the Congressional Library,
At Boone's Station may be seen the rude limestone
slabs erected by Boone himself on the graves of his
brother, Edward; his son, Israel; and his nephew,
Thomas Boone; the two latter were victims of the 2nd
Battle of Blue Licks in 1782.
Note: All descendents of Edward Boone are eligible
for membership in the patriotic organizations, S.A.R.
and D.A.R. because of his service rendered to his
country in repulsing the British and Indians in the
1st Battle of Blue Licks.
The children of Edward and Martha (Bryan) Boone
Mary, who married Peter Scholl
Sarah, who married William Hunter
Jane, born September 18, 1762; married Morgan Morgan,
born September 10, 1760
In "Abstracts of Early Wills and
Inventories": by J. Estelle King, I found the
following abstract notation:
"Clark County, KY., dated May 12, 1793, Martha
Boone bequeathed to the following children, George,
Joseph, Charity, Jane Morgan, Mary Scholl, and Sarah
John Morgan, Jr.
Note: The birth dates of Jane Morgan, September 18,
1762 and that of her husband, Morgan Morgan, September
10, 1760 were registered in my grandparents' (Evender
Smith and Mary (Cunningham) Morgan) bible. My
grandparents were second cousins, Evander Smith Morgan
being the grandson of Morgan and Jane (Boone) Morgan.
Mary Cunningham was the great granddaughter of Morgan
and Jane (Boone) Morgan.
In this manuscript I am making note of all
available data, hence the recording of the following
regarding Sarah Boone, sister of Jane, obtained from
"American Pioneer Records and The Boone
Sarah, daughter of Edward and Martha (Bryan) Boone
married William Hunter. Their daughter, Polly, married
James Hudgins, whose daughter, Kitty, married Charles
Lowrey, whose daughter, Mary, married Dan. W. Young.

Married 1st time to John Stewart or Stuart

At page 33, "Society of Colonial Wars" it
is recorded that Squire Boone I, 1696-1765, served
against the Catawba and Cherokee Indians on several
occasions. He was justice for Rowen County, NC. This
record establishes membership for Squire Boone's
descendants to the Colonial Dames of America.
Squire Boone enlarged his farm by thrift. He
continued his trade of weaving and kept 5 or 6 looms
going making homespun cloth for the market and
The Boones were prosperous and happy in Oley and it
may be wondered why they left their farms and looms,
both of which were profitable, and set their faces
toward the unknown. It is recorded that though they
were Quakers, they were of a high mettle and were not
infrequently dealt with by the Meeting. Two of Squire
Boone's children married "worldlings"
--non-Quakers--and were, in consequence, disowned by
the Society of Friends. In defiance of his sect which
strove to make him sever all connection with his
unruly offspring, Squire Boone refused to shut his
door on the son and daughter who had scandalized local
Quakers. The Society of Friends thereupon expelled
him. This occured, apparently, in the winter of
1748/49. In the Spring of 1750 we see the whole Boone
family (save two sons) with their wives and children,
household goods and stock on the great highway bound
for a land where the hot heart and beligerent spirit
shall not be held amiss. They moved from Pennsylvania
to Rowen County, N.C. Squire Boone died in his 65th
year in 1764 and was buried in Rowen County at the
fork of Yadkin River about ten miles above the fork on
a place called Burning Rigg; his wife, Sarah (Morgan)
Boone died in the 72nd year in 1776 and was buried
beside her husband.
Author's note: Another record states that Squire
and Sarah (Morgan ) Boone are buried in Joppa
graveyard near Mocksville, N.C.
Jane Boone, born Sept. 18, 1762, died Dec 1, 1812,
was the daughter of Edward and Martha (Bryan) Boone,
granddaughter of Squire * and Sarah (Morgan) Boone.
She married Morgan Morgan, born Sept 10, 1760 died Mar
18, 1835. (Ref Family Bible)
I have been unable to ascertain the blood
relationship, if any, between Jane Boone and her
husband, Morgan Morgan, because of lack of
genealogical information on Morgan Morgan's family.
However, I am of the opinion that there did exist a
remote degree of blood relationship, because in my
study of the various Morgan genealogies, I have
observed that the earliest Morgan immigrants to this
country came from Wales and a great many of them
settled in the Welsh community of Pennsylvania, as did
Edward Morgan, grandfather to Jane Boone who was the
wife of Morgan Morgan.
From a manuscript which has long been preserved in
our Morgan family records, I obtained the following
The Morgan family moved from Virginia to Kentucky
and were among the first white settlers of that
territory in about the year 1775 or 1780 and remained
in Kentucky until 1800, thence removed to the Spanish
Territory known as Louisiana and settled on Bluff
Creek, now the Parish of East Feliciana. The family
that came from Kentucky to Louisiana were as follows:
Two brothers, Morgan Morgan and John Morgan and two
sisters, Sarah Morgan and Nancy Morgan.
Morgan Morgan married Jane Boone by which marriage
he left the following heirs, to-wit:
1. William, who married: First, Mary Vardell,
daughter of John Vardell who emigrated with the Morgan
family from Kentucky;
Second, Name unknown

2. George, born in 1792 and died without issue.
(According to Bible record in possession of Mrs. Robt.
L. Morgan, RFD 4, Baton Rouge, LA.)
3. Daniel, married three times, 1st wife was the
widow of N.J. Nauls; second wife was Rachael Smith;
third wife was Rachael Phelps.
Issue: by second marriage was: Eli
Evander Smith Morgan
Thomas Milton Morgan
Evander Smith Morgan was born Dec. 22, 1834, and
died on November 8, 1878 of yellow fever. He was away
from home when he contracted the dread disease and he
crossed the Great Border without the tender care of
his loving wife and family. Today he lies in an
unmarked grave, spot unknown, near ----------, La. A
monument was erected to his memory over an empty crypt
by the side of his deceased wife in Magnolia Cemetery,
Baton Rouge, LA. He married his second cousin, Mary
Alice Cunningham (born July 26, 1838 died 1896) in
Amite County, Miss., on August 26, 1856, daughter of
Daniel Ambrose and Martha Kenner Cunningham.

Daniel Ambrose Cunningham was the son of Arthur and
Mary ( Cunningham. He was born Sept 25, 1810 in New
York very shortly after his parents had arrived in
this country from Ireland. They took up residence in
Baltimore, Md. Daniel Ambrose Cunningham came to Baton
Rouge, La., about 1830. He was a contractor and bought
and sold slaves. He had the following brothers and
sisters: Isaac, John, Alexander, Richard, Robert,

Providence, April 8, aged 66 years. He was one of the
most prominent civil engineers, especially in railroad
work, in the country. He commenced his profession as
assistant engineer on the Baltimore and ohio Railroad.
He also assisted in the engineering of Boston,

Martha Bryan, wife of Edward Boone, was a daughter
of Joseph and Alee ( ) Bryan of Virginia. Her
grandfather, Morgan Bryan (born 1671 and no revious
Morgan connection to indicate that he was given the
name Morgan because of family ties) came to America in
1695 and here married Martha Strode in 1719, a
descendant of sir William Strode one of the signers of
the death warrant of King Charles I. From his brother
came the great commoner, William Jennings Bryan.
The father of Morgan Bryan was Francis Bryan III,
who married Sarah Brinker, a cousin of the Prince of
Grange, and his father was William Smith Bryan, son of
Sir Francis Bryan II(born 1649) and Ann, daughter of
Sir William Smith. Sir Francis Bryan II, was a son of
Sir Francis Bryan I and Lady Joan Fitz-Gerald, and he
was a son of Sir Thomas Bryan and Lady Margaret,
daughter of Sir Humphrey Bourchier and parents were
Sir John Bourchier (Earl of Eire) and Lady Ann
Plantagenet. This Lady Ann was a daughter of Thomas of
Woodstock (Duke of Gloucester) and Lady Eleanor de
Bohun (pronounced Boone and said to be the same family
as the American Boones. Thomas of Woodstock was a son
of Edward III, king of England and Phillips of
Lady Margaret Bouchier, wife of Sir Thomas Bryan,
was a cousin of Queen Ann Boleyn and was a great
favorite at the glamorous court of Henry VIII, who had

At a court held for Clark County the 23rd day of
July 1793, the last Will and Testament of Martha
Boone, deceased, was proven by the oaths of John
Morgan and John Stetwell. Witnesses thereto subscribed
and ordered to be recorded on the motion of John
D. Bullock, CCC
We know that our forefather, Morgan Morgan, was
accompanied to La. from Ky by his brother, John
therefore, we have every reason to believe that the
John Morgan, Jr., who was appointed executer of the
last will and testament of Martha Boone, was the
brother of Morgan Morgan.
The John Morgan who witnessed the will was
evidently the father of John an Morgan Morgan. Examine
the chart and you will see where Sarah Morgan married
Squire Boone in 1720. They were the grandparents of
our Jane Boone Morgan (wife of Morgan Morgan who came
to La.) Sarah Morgan Boone had a brother John who
married Sarah Lloyd. If our Morgan Morgan and his
brother John were descendants of John Morgan, brother
to Sarah Morgan Boone, then Jane Boone Morgan was
related to her husband, Morgan Morgan.

History and News
to the Home page of the Morgan Family Club, a national,
non-profit family club, dedicated to gathering and preserving
the heritage of all American Morgan families. This is a common
name in Wales and England so obviously all the families who
settled in America are not blood-related.
Most of the Morgan families in America are descendants of
pioneers from the British Isles who settled in the American
English colonies before they gained independence. These
Morgans came from both Wales and England primarily. Wales is
the ancient homeland of the Morgan families.
Please, don't ask "am I related to your
group". Obviously, not all Morgans are blood related.
However, we are united in our desire to preserve our family
heritage. This is a family club for ALL the different Morgan
families. It is a FAMILY website for and about descendants of
Morgan families. The Family Club's main purpose is to become a
central "clearing house" for information on ALL
these different families and to make it easier for folks to
learn more about their ancestors by sharing their research
efforts and eliminating wasteful duplication and errors.
We are working to add a large section on Morgan family
history, with basic information and records that might help
you know and understand our ancestors better. We will also be
adding information on individual family lines. You are urged
to submit family information to be included here on Morgan's
and descendants. Click on "HISTORY"
in the INDEX below.
We have a new section devoted to famous and notable members
of our Morgan family. We have sections on those in government
and politics, entertainment (movies, TV, music), education,
business and industry, science, sports, religion, military
service, the arts and much more. We are even working on a
section for the ones who are 'infamous' -- such as Morgan the
pirate. You will find information on United States senators
and Congressmen, governors, notable movie stars and more.
Click on FAMOUS in the INDEX below.
You can honor a lost loved one by posting a memorial to
them in the family "Memorials" section. If you would
like to memorialize a deceased parent, grandparent, spouse,
ancestor or other relative, you can place poems; information
on birth, death, marriage, children, etc.; a photo; personal
memories, etc. Click on "MEMORIALS" in
the INDEX below.
If you are looking for Morgan ancestors, we also
have a section for messages/ queries where you can submit a
personal message about Morgan ancestors or living relatives
that you are looking for. You might be able to locate others
with the information and records you are looking for. Click on
"QUERIES" in the INDEX below.
The most important part of our family website is your
online family newsletter which contains current news about
your kinfolk. For this to be a success, WE NEED YOUR HELP --
when you hear about a death, wedding, engagement, important
wedding anniversary, birth, school news, kinfolk in the
military service and other news about Morgan kinfolk, please
let us know so we can put it in the family newsletters. Click
in the INDEX below for the newsletter.
You are urged to send us information and copies of
records on your immediate family to preserve in the Family
Library. We are trying to gather copies of every type of
public document and private records, including copies of
marriage records, deeds, old letters, wills, US and state
census records, obituaries, newspaper articles, family Bible
records , estate and court records, birth and death
certificates, military records, wedding and engagement
notices, school records, old tax and voter's lists, cemetery
tombstone inscriptions and more.
PLEASE, make xerox copies of the family information in your
Bible, obituaries of Morgan relatives, wedding notices,
military discharge papers, birth and death certificates and
other types of family records you have and send these to us to
preserve in the Family Library. Take time to record all the
birth dates, marriages and deaths in your immediate family.
Record the memories of the oldest relatives you know so these
can be preserved for future generations.
ur Family Library will be donated to the Georgia State
Archives upon the death of our historian. This is the largest
and most modern state archives in the South and centrally
located for the majority of our family.
If your branch of the family is planning a reunion, please
send us details so we can write an article about it in the
family newsletters. Send complete details: give the date, time
and full location of the reunion. If it is to be held in a
rural area, give good directions from the nearest town. Also
send the name, mailing address, telephone number and email
address if available for a person to contact for additional
information. Also give details on planned activities, who is
in charge of them; food arrangements (bring a picnic basket or
is a banquet planned at a motel or elsewhere?). If your
reunion is an annual event, tell some history about it: when
and where it started; who started it; who is the ancestor of
the branch that is holding the reunion and other info you
think will be interesting.
AFTER the reunion, write and tell us some details: how many
attended; what cities and states were represented; the names
and hometowns of the oldest and youngest who were there; your
activities; if you have a reunion committee, the names and
hometowns of your officers.
