Hi Deborah. Sorry I didn't answer sooner but didn't see the post! Hope we can find a male descendant of Morgan and Elizabeth English Brians. There are color copies of the lithographs of his dairy "Green Valley Dairy" and they can be seen on the Cal Poly site. part of the Kennedy Collection in San Luis Obispo. I read a brief biography of Morgan and said he was born in the state of Kentucky on nov. 24, 1807 and lived there until 1817. Then he "removed" to MO. He was in MO 35 years and there married Elizabeth English from TN born 1811. They had 6 children in MO. in 1852 they left for California and settled in Petaluma, Sonoma Co. In 1868 they moved to San Luis Opisbo to Green Valley and there had the Green Valley Diary. I cannot help wondering if Morgan Brians is related to my Morgan Bryant! Both families have quite a few fraternal twins. Hope you see this. Jackie
