In Reply to: Morgan's by Omar McCourry of 653

I tried two searches for you:

Frank Morgan with parents Benjamin and Maria, 1790 - 1930, California - None

Any Morgan b. 1910 - 1920 in Contra Costa County in 1920 - None that match your question.

Then I turned to

http://vitals.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ca/death/search.cgi

(Last Name, First Name, Middle, Birth Date, Mother Maiden, Father Last, Sex, Birth Place, Death Place, Residence, Death Date)

MORGAN, MARIA, C, 05/28/1880, CHURCHFI (Undoubtedly truncated), {blank}, F, {blank}, CONTRA COSTA,
{blank}, 09/29/1962

and

MORGAN BENJAMIN 12/26/1877 MMN STEVENSON FS MORGAN M MISSOURI CONTRA COSTA 04/25/1959


Back to the census.

Maria Morgan b. 1875 - 1885, anywhere in California in 1920 - None.

Any Benjamin Morgan b. 1872 - 1883 living in California

Paydirt!

1920 San Francisco Assembly District 30, San Francisco, California

Surname Given Name Relationship Sex Race Age Estimated Birth Year Marital Status Birthplace Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace

Morgan Benjamin Head Male White 42 abt 1878 Married, Missouri, USA, USA
Morgan Marie Wife Female White 38 abt 1882 Married Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Pennsylvania
Morgan Mary Daughter Female White 17 abt 1903 Single Wyoming Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan Banjamin Son Male White 12 abt 1908 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan Vivian Daughter Female White 9 abt 1911 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan Frank Son Male White 7 abt 1913 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan Mayford Daughter Female White 5 11/12 abt 1914 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan John Son Male White 3 abt 1917 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan Jess Son Male White 3 abt 1917 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Morgan Lola Daughter Female White 1 6/12 abt 1918 Single California Missouri Pennsylvania
Doyle Martin Brother-in-law Male White 34 abt 1886 Single Nebraska Pennsylvania Pennsylvania

If the birth places are accurate, Ben and Marie headed west sometime before 1903, spent enough time in Wyoming to have Mary, then came to California. Martin Doyle there is a bonus - now you know Marie's maiden name. Her family moved west too; Martin was born in Nebraska 4 years after Marie was born in Pennsylvania.

I will let you do it, for the thrill of discovery, but if you go back to
http://vitals.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ca/death/search.cgi
and try two searches:

1) Surname Morgan, Mother Doyle, given name blank
2) Surname blank, Mother Doyle, Father Morgan

you will find some of the family.


Here they are in 1930:

Sacramento, Sacramento, California; Roll 185; Page: 2B; Enumeration District: 48;

Benjamin P Morgan 53
Marie C Morgan 49
Frank M Morgan 17
Mayford L Morgan 15
John D Morgan 13
Jess H Morgan 13
Albert C Morgan 9
Dorothy E Morgan 7
William R Morgan 5

http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi?ssn=548-18-8121
has Jess, whose last residence was in Stockton, one county north of us.

The CDI has no MMN
MORGAN, JESS b. 01/03/1917 in CALIFORNIA d. SAN JOAQUIN on 10/09/1975


The San Joaquin GenForum board has more questions and less answers than Stanislaus, but you might try it.

I'm not related. I hope this helps.
