Hi Mary,
I am in the FamilyTreeDNA Group #1. Those Y-DNA results are listed in my posting along with several Y-DNA results that aren't listed on that small-stuff.MORGAN site. I can tell you which ones are additional Y-DNA matches if you like. The other matches, including the Faurquier Co ones are from the Family Finder DNA test. As you might remember, I have 3 Morgan Lines in my family. I have my paternal Morgan's which are represented by the Y-DNA matches. I also have my gggg grandmother Hannah Morgan's, who claimed to be Daniel Morgan's sister, line and then I have my maternal line. All of these different lines are why I did the Family Finder test.

Here are my paternal or Y-DNA Matches:

1.William Morgan b. 1821 in SC and married Harriet?

2.Nathaniel Morgan b.1778 NC married Mary Ann Ellis

3.John Morgan B.? lived in NC married Jane Talley in New Orleans. Fought in Battle of New Orleans, War of 1812.

4.Daniel Morgan b.1776 Wales or England d.England married Phebe Baker

5.George Morgan b.1708 in Gloucester Co., NJ d. 1759 married Susanna Davis b.1709 d. 1757

6.Randall Morgan was born about 1710 in Gloucester Co. ,NJ and died July 26, 1773 in Faquier Co., VA. He married Grace Lidyard bef. 1737. She was born in Sept. 1716 and died Dec. 20, 1757

7.William Ratcliffe Morgan was born in 1815 in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England. He married Janet Hoare who was born in 1821 in Kingston, Surrey, England.

8.John Morgan was born in 1732 in Cumberland Co., Va and died in 1786 in Granville Co., NC he married Elizabeth Allin b. 1737 in Hanover Co., VA d. aft 1814 in Pendleton SC

9.Simon Morgan was born abt. 1685 in Warwick Co., VA and died c.1707 in Amelia Co., VA. He married Elizabeth Ridley

Here are the FamilyFinder matches to date that I believe are from Hannah Morgan:

1.Edward Morgan 1670-1736 m. Elizabeth Jarman 1670-1731. Grandparents of Daniel Boone

2.Thomas Morgan c.1713-1781 VA m. Johanna (Jackson?) 1719-1781

3.Charles Morgan (1710- 1782)VA md Hannah Oxford 1715-1782

Here are the two matches that I know are my mother's line for sure. They may be connected to Hannah Morgan's matches as well, I just don't have it all figured out yet:

1.James Morgan b. 1645 Nantmell Parrish, Radnorshire Wales married Jane Evans b.1647.

2.Thomas Morgan b.1702 PA d. 1774 Bedford Co. VA. married Lettice Evans(grandson? of James Morgan and Janes Evans above)

I am familier with the Fleming Co, KY Morgans. On of my ancestors made this statement in the Dickey Diary in 1898:

“ I talked with Daniel White's wife, and she said that her father, General Daniel Morgan of Fleming County was a lineal descendant of General Daniel Morgan of Revolutionary fame.”

Here is her line, I think:

Mildred Morgan
Daniel Morgan b.1795 m. Anna Clarkson b. 1797
Simon Morgan Jr. b.1755 m. Elizabeth Pickett
Simon Morgan Sr. b.1710 m. Margaret Darnell
Charles Morgan b.1680 m. Alice Thornton
Anthony Morgan m. Elizabeth Taylor

I think the Charles Morgan who married Hannah Oxford I listed as one of my DNA matches is from this line also.

This statement was also made in the Dickey Diary:

“Old Si Cockerill of Breathitt County told me that his mother was a daughter of one of General Daniel Morgan's brothers."

Here is Si Cockerill's line:

Simon Cockrell, Jr, b.1772 d.1857 m. Mary Smith
Simon Cockrell, Sr. b.1745 d. 1843 m. Magdelena Vardeman b.1744 d.1843
John Vardeman m. Elizabeth Morgan b. 1739
Thomas Morgan b.1702 d.1774 m. Lettice Evans b.1702 d.1749
Lewis Morgan b. 1678 Wales d. 1706 VA. m. Elizabeth ?
James Morgan b. 1645 Wales d. 1691 Maryland m. Jane Evans b.1647 d. 1691

I only bring this last one up because I found another statement made in the mid 1800's by a Ruth B. Morgan, Indianapolis, that she was a "grandniece" of General Daniel Morgan. she was also from a different branch this same line as Si Cockerill. Her father was a brother of the Elizabeth Morgan who married John Vardeman, listed above.

Not sure how many of these folks knew what they were talking about, but makes for interesting discussion.
