Brian was born in Trenton, MI on December 17, 1974 to Carlla Morgan (Now Carlla Morgan-Lampton) and Michael David Chambers.  He has 2 half siblings- Amanda and Corey Chambers.

Interesting family history: Morgan family tree- Daniel Morgan- American Revolutionary War hero:

He might also be a descendant of Admiral Sir Henry Morgan  (aka Captain Morgan) but not 100% sure.  They still need to do more research on this one.

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 connection."

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 Robinson

(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: (Record obtained from The Boone Family by Hazel Attervury Spraker, published by the Tuttle Co., Tutland, VT., 1922 Edition)

* 1. Sarah--born April 7, 1724--died 1824--married John Wilcoxen

Issue: James

7. Mary--born March 14, 1736; died 1819; married William Bryan brother to Rebecca and Martha Bryan

Issue: Samuel

8. George--born January 13, 1739; died 1820; married Ann or Nancy Linville

Issue: Mary

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 Boone:

"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, Washington, DC.

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 were:

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 Hunter (?)
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 Bulletin".

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.

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 neighbors.

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 date:

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

Issue: Morgan Morgan

Jane Morgan

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

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 Hainault.

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 a predeliction for wives. She is said to have been very beautiful and most fascinating and her influence was so great and far-reaching that jealoous courtiers in their "whisperings" even suggested a "royal romance."

Will of Martha Boone of Clark County, and State of Kentucky.

Being weak in body but of perfect mind and memory, thanks be to the Almighty God. I calling to mind the certainty of death and that all people once must assuredly die when it shall please God to call, do make, constitute, ordain and desire this to be my last will and testiment in the form and manner following and disannulling by these presents all and every testament and testaments and will and wills heretofore made by me either by word of mouth or writing and this only to be taken for my last will and testament and no other to be considered as my will,, intent or desire.

And as for what worldly goods and chattels it has pleased God to bless me with, shall be disposed of in form and manner following--

First. I do positively order that all just debts and ----------- I owe either by right or conscience to any person or persons should well and truly be paid or satisfied as soon as convenient after my decease by my son, George Boone.

Item -- I give and bequeath unto my daughter, Charity Elledge, all my right and interest in that tract or parcel of land on which she now lives, containing by estimation one hundred and twenty five acres or more or less, with all its appurtenances to hold in fee to her and her heirs forever.

Item -- I give and bequeath unto my daughter, Jane Morgan, my negro woman, Lilly.

Lastly, I do make constitute and appoint John Morgan, Jr. Executer of this my last will and testament and trustee for the same.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand seal, this the twelfth day of May, in the year of our Lord, One Thousand seven hundred and ninety three (1793)


Trustee - John Morgan
John Stetwell
William ?

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 Morgan, Jr.


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.

Morgan Family Club

Morgan Family History and News

Welcome 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.

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.
