Barbara,
Thank you so much for getting back to me! It really great to meet another cousin and to be able to find out more about our ancestors!! So, I hope it is ok for you if I ask some questions which has been consuming my geneological research for a couple of years now.
In particular, I believe there was a brother of Eliza's named William, do you know what happened to him? I have spent much time to go through census records and found 2 William Morgan's in the area - one married to Keziah (Kerziah) and lived around Bristol/Goodson area and another married Letitia and lived around the Mendota area. I'm not sure if either one of these could be Eliza's brother. Any ideas?
I do know from the census records that my Great-Great Grandfather Isaac Morgan was William's son and living with his Aunt Harriet Rebecca Morgan (one of Eliza's sisters) in 1860. Isaac ended up marrying Susan Moore and moved to Oklahoma in the 1880's which is where all of my family grew up. I have a number of pictures of Isaac and his family after they came to Oklahoma, but not much is known about their days in Scott County, which is where I've been focusing the research, especially to find details on the William Morgan - son of Robert Morgan - and brother of Eliza. Any info on William is very very much appreciated!!
Also, do you know where is Gravelly Hill located, is it in the Fulkerson area?
Feel free to contact me directly at my email address pnmorgan@yahoo.com and thank you so much again for the response. I really look forward to hearing back from you.

Best wishes,
Patrick Morgan
