I would like to dialogue with anyone out there who knows more about this family and whether or not they had children. On the marriage certificate for Bertram Paul Morgan b. 15 Jan 1904 Gilman, IN d. Nov 1977 Delaware co IN it said he was the son of Bertram Morgan and Lillie Town. His bride, Martha Diana Poor gave her last name as spelled Poore (it wasn't). She was the daughter of Francis Oscar Poor b. Sept 1884 and his first wife Mary Elizabeth Campbell 1891 died 26 May 1914 IN.

I also descend from the POOR family that Martha Diana Poor's father is from. Francis Oscar Poor was the son of William H. Poor 1851 Liberty Twp, Delaware Co IN and his wife Rebecca Jane 'Jennie' Wagoner b. 1856 d. 1932 who married Mar 22 1874 in Delaware Co IN.

William H. Poor was the only surviving son of Thomas C. Poor and his first wife Mary Elizabeth Williams. Thomas C. Poor was a farmer 1817 NC married 20 Oct 1848 Mary elizabeth Williams b. 11 Nov 1831 OH, the daughter of Thomas Williams 1815 NC who died 12 Apr 1863 IN. After the death of his first wife, Thomas C. Poor remarried June 28 1856, Martha Jane Haynes. Thomas C. Poor died Apr 25, 1874 leaving a widow (his 2nd wife) and 12 children. Thomas C. Poor was Martha Diana (Poor) Morgan's great-great grandfather. Her grandparents were William H. Poor and Rebecca Jane 'Jennie' Wagoner. (They divorced and Rebecca remarried).
