   Name: James Morgan
   Born: c1729
   Died: 1810
  Place: Rowan County, NC
 Buried: 
Married: 18 Jul 1754
  Place: St George Parish, Baltimore co MD

James Morgan was a signer of the Regulator Petition. See the timeline below for more information.

Reverend James Morgan Jr, James Morgan Sr's son, was born in Baltimore county, Maryland, as testified in his Revolutionary War pension application (#S7251). This fact lends credence to the notion that the 1754 Baltimore county marriage does, in fact, belong to his parents. The pension records do not offer proof of the Reverend's parentage but the couple is named in the memoir of his nephew, Enoch Parr, who states that his maternal grandparents were James Morgan and Molly Davis. Parr further describes entering his uncle James Morgan's school once he turned five years old. This fact is significant in properly identifying the family because James Jr does make reference in his application to his years as a teacher. The Parr manuscript, then, is the glue that binds the Morgan genealogy.

James Morgan Sr m Mary (Molly) Davis 1754 | ------------------ | | Rev James Mary (Polly) Morgan Jr Morgan m Arthur Parr b 1760 | Enoch Parr b 1785

All this is very well and good, but in none of it can I find the needed proof that my Martha Morgan (married William Wright) was the daughter of James and Molly. The descent has long been a tradition and is almost certainly correct but finding proof sometimes means having to let go of some previously treasured ancestors. Perhaps a closer study of James Jr and the Parrs will yield clues.

The Memoir of Enoch Parr

The Indiana Magazine of History published Enoch Parr's memoir in its December 1926 issue (volume 22, pages 371-453). I transcribed the following directly from a photocopy of pages 391-393. Obviously, Enoch's grammar and spelling were poor. But it's impossible to say what other errors may have been the result of transcription and typographical problems. According to Parr, his grandfather was "an old man" by the onset of the American Revolution and was ready to die when he "surrendered" to what turned out to be a detachment of patriot General Nathanael Greene's army:

As this old James Morgan was a firm liberty man and lived in a settlement mostly of tories he was often exposed to perl and to loss of property and oftener to insult so much so that when the desaterous defeat of Gates was made properly known the old gentleman could but seldon or never go into company with out being hissed and poined at. and once (perhaps often) condolling himself with this cosolation. "Rejoice not mine enemy although I fall yet shall I rise". And after the Guilford battle when the British army under Cornwallis marched down through the countery to wards Wilmington they passed near about the first of April 1781 striped him of every thing that would suit to feed Soldiers or forage horses. At the time the British passed down through the contry the poor dismayed liberty men had to keep concealed or lay out as it was called commonly as near home as was convenient and the old man Morgan was laying out on the day the British army plundered his property and being very solicitious to see what damage was done he come home early on the morning after the british left and approached near his own house. And in that situation was discovered by a party of the Amercian horse a part of Gen Greens army who was hanging on the rear of the British which the old man mistook for the British and as consealment was not practable in the situation he was in he walked forward with his hat under his arm and requested to surrender a prisioner of war. Upon that the officer asked "who he was for" to which chalange he replied. "I do not want to die with a lie in my mouth I am what they call a liberty man" the officer then replyed. If you are a liberty man you have nothing to fear from me. Tho it was some time before the old man could be convinced that he was in company of a part of Greens army which was really the fact and who requested him to pilot them directly through the country to head quarters which the old man imediately undertook and on the way encampt the nigh before and finding several young men on the camp ground who really was the sons of tories the officer put questions to them and they not doubting but thay they ware interogated by a British officer was a bout answaring favourable which the old man Morgan discovered shook his head at the young men and took upon him to answer for them. And being known to them to be a liberty man they discovered their mistake and changed their tone. And afterwards acknowledge the obligation they ware under to the old man who perhaps saved them from imediate distruction. They then put off on the same day as the old man piloted them through the country. the liberty offiser fell in with a man who no doubt mistook the offiser for a British officer frankly acknowledged that he was a soldier in a regiment Raised by Col Forgason and that he fought with Forgason at Kings Mountain and that as soon as he could work for some clothing he would return to his duty in the kings service. Upon this the captain informed him that he migh be busy with his maker for he had not more than thirty minutes to live. And so conducted him a little out of sight of some ladies and directed him to be shot which was imediately done. The old man Morgan when recuring to the seens of war would often relate this pasage and tell how it shocked him sepicially when he reflected upon how he had escaped in the morning. The man killed was of the name of Frederic Hiser and he had a brother who hearing that Morgan was along when his brother was killed saught to kill the old man and once came to his house for the purpose when the old man was from home. In this way individuals often suffered for the conduct of their party.

Timeline

The following timeline was posted by "Charmaine" on 13 Feb 2007 and can be found at the Morgan-L archive on rootsweb.

This is the James and Mary Davis Morgan who received a land grant for 440 acres on the waters of Sandy Creek - 23 Oct. 1782 Randolph Co., NC - this was sold 18 Jan. 1785. (of course, the first registration for land purchase may have been registered in Orange Co., NC. Do you have abstracts of the Orange Co., Land grant?)

James Morgan and wife Mary (Davis) Morgan left Maryland and migrated to North Carolina about 1764. There son James, Jr says in his Rev. pension application that they first lived in Rowan Co., NC.

In 1768 James Morgan was one of the signers of Regulator Petition No. 9(. Petition filed in Orange Co., NC court. He appears in the group known as the Sandy Creek faction.) Also signing the petition with that group of men was one Philbert Wright.

In 1771 he signs the Petition to create a new County, called Guilford.

In 1773 he and his son "Mentor (Permenter) Morgan signed the petition to create the new county of Randolph.

In 1778 he appears on the Randolph Co., NC taxlist, as does his son 'Mentor (Permenter)

Before 1790 he is living on land along the Uwharrie River on the side that is Rowan Co., NC. He is found listed on the 1790 and 1800 Rowan Co., NC census, surrounded by a number of German Tunkers/Dunkers (German Baptists). Neighbors include several Miars (Myers), Frederick Miller, Isaac Odle, Arthur Parr, Martin and Michael Ring, Christian Sears, several Tackers, Richard, Evans, Philberson, William, Easaw Wright, John Veach, several Fouts, William Yokley, several Cowans,several Erwins, Thomas Gillespie, several Kerr's, Lowrance's and Huston's, among others.

This appears to be the same James Morgan who married Mary Davis in Harford Co., MD in 1755. Three children were born to them in Maryland that are recorded in church records:

Permenter 1756
Sarah 1757
James, Jr. 1760

There is another James Morgan Sr also living in Rowan Co., NC in this period, but had died prior to 1790. He was the father of James, Jr, Nathan, Hugh and John Morgan, and should not be confused with the other, although it is easy to do at first glance. They are living in different areas of Rowan Co., NC.

We are looking for proof of the children born after the move to North Carolina, or after April 1760 when the last child James Morgan Jr's birth was recorded in Maryland. It seems unlikely that James Morgan and Mary Davis Morgan did not produce any further children after that date.

And there's this post from Judith Jones:

Here on the land records for Rowan co. pertaining to James Morgan and other allied families.

1784 Nathan Morgan, Huge Morgan are listed as being on south fork of Crane Ck in what is now southern Rowan co. Our James and wife Mary are still on Sandy Ck in Randolph co. Nathan and brother James are listed by their descendants as being the sons of James Morgan of Glamorganshire, Wales and Rachel Jack McCreaden of Ireland. Nathan's birth date is listed as 1756 in Cecil co., Md, so James was probably born same area. Nathan married Naomi Van Poole in Rowan and had Elizabeth, James, David, Rachel, John, Hugh and Henry. John married Elizabeth Selah and they had John, James Jr., Hardy, Stone and Bettie Cealle.

1786 State Grant to James Morgan Jr. 350A on the Uwharrie.

1789 James Morgan of Rowan co. bought 100A on Cabin Ck in what is now Davidson so.

1792 James Morgan is listed as living on Hodges Fork of Uwharrie.

1793 State Grant to James Morgan on both sides of Brier Ck of Uwahrrie.

1793 State Grant to James Morgan Jr. 77A on Uwharrie next to James Sr.

1794 James Morgan sells to Elijah Morgan land on both side of Brier Ck.

1798 James Morgan Sr. sells to Isaac Morgan land on the Uwharrie next Elijah Morgan, Levi Truitt and James Morgan. There are two Isaac Morgans living in this area. When ours was in Washington co. Indiana, the other was still in Rowan co. and later shows up living near Perminter in western North Carolina. I don't know which one bought the land.

1798 State Grant to James Morgan land on Cabin Ck in what is now Davidson co and some distance from the Uwharrie.

1798 James Morgan Jr. sells to Andrew Fouts both of Randolph co. land next to James Sr.

1799 Mark Cole sells to James Morgan of Randolph co.land on Cabin Cr.

1802 Andrew Fouts of Randolph co. sells land to David Fouts of Rowan co. land "which was part of a conveyance of 77A from James Morgan". (see 1793, this is James Jr.)

1805 Elijah Morgan sells to Isaac Morgan land he got from James Sr. which is witnessed by Andrew Fouts and Absolom Morgan, Elijah son's.

Now we have Nathan's brother James, his son James Jr., and Nathan's son James, and James who is married to Mary Davis and possibly another James married to a Mary Davis who may still be in Randolph co. although he is listed as having died in 1791.

As I said the whole thing is really confusing. Judith Jones

Other Information

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=johnrobison&id=I09878 It's tempting to believe that Perminter Morgan's step-grandmother's name was Patience Perminter.

I don't know who the father of Rev. Perminter Morgan was. The account by Tom Morgan below is at odds with other accounts, some of which say he was the son of Stephan Morgan, not James. So until I get it sorted out I will just put down what information I have.

_________________

From Tom Morgan's account:

James Morgan was born about 1719 in Pennsylvania, the colony founded for religous freedom, on land bought by his father from William Penn. He was the son of John and Sarah (Evans) Morgan, but raised by Patience Perminter, his stepmother. James migrated south some 40 miles, after his father's death, to the Harford area in north Maryland. He found his first wife Elizabeth Walker and second wife Mary Davis among the followers of the St. George Parish. [Note: there is dispute about whether Mary Davis was his wife or his son James' wife -- IF he had a son named James!] Around 1760, James and family moved to North Carolina near the modern town of Liberty. The homestead site in this new land was on the water s of Sandy Creek near the intersection of two primary trading paths an d the geographic center of modern North Carolina. The Sandy Creek are a was the center of the back country religious and political activity from 1770 to 1790. A land grant of 440 acres was recorded in 1782. It is highly likely that this was the land homesteaded in 1760 but not re corded until later. In 1786 James (along with John, Goin C., and Ruddy Morgan ) signed a petition in protest of unfair taxes. This petition was one of ten presented to the colonial government. His signature caused him to be named, as were all signers, Regulators or Rebels. Some 2,000 Regulators joined together and marched in protest to Hillsboro (15 mile NE) the seat of the colonial government. Violence erupted and in 1771 "The Battle of Alamance" culminated the civil disobedience." James was named as a articipant in this battle. Son Perminter, although not named, was probably present. Both were required to pledge allegiance to the king in 1 772 (as punishment for the riot) or forfeit all property. James became a very influential person in the area. He homesteaded some 600 acres of the Piedmont Grassland area for which he recieved title after the War of Revolution. The tax list of Randolph County N.C. for the year 1779 show James Morgan owning 66 acres of improved land, 59 0 acres other land, 14 cattle, 6 horses, and 80 pounds English money. James sold his last landholding in 1811, after which nothing is know . His age would have been over 90 at this time. The sale of the lands in 1810 and 1811 may have been done by James Jr. after the death of his father.

DNA Evidence

To my knowledge, none of James's paternal descendants have tested. The only lineage I find at the Morgan Surname DNA Project having a Rowan County connection is that of Nathan Morgan, born 1776 in Cecil county, Maryland.1

Likely, a good candidate for testing would best be found among the descendants of James's sons Perminter and Isaac Morgan. Any male Morgan wishing to test should contact Morgan Surname DNA Project directly.

This, however, does little to resolve the question as to whether Martha Morgan was James's daughter since women do not have a Y chromosome to test. However, they do have mtDNA. A matrilineal descendant of Martha's would posssess the same markers in her mitochondrial DNA.
