These families do appear to be related.
#1 thomas and Jenett Morgan parents of James the Iron Monger were in New Providence Philadelphia County PA. NOte: became Montgomery County.
#2 Edward of Gwynedd or something like that PA (Montgomery County) all sorts of documentation regarding Evans, Davies, JOnes, Morris family and Boone regarding marriages etc. Morgan Morgan, Thomas Morgan, a John Morgan, Evan Morgan, a Sarah and yes a Daniel Morgan are in these annoucements of intent to marry etc...
#3 John Morgan of Radnor also in PA families associated with him are associated with the other 2 Morgan's above and with James Morgan the Iron Monger of Bucks PA
Morgans in Pilesgrove, NJ/Morris and Gloucester Counties NJ also appear to be associated with some of the same families believe George related somehow...brother? not sure of his birth date and believe Samuel Sr of Homer Franklin/Habersham County GA is related due to families tying in. There is a Samuel and John in Pilesgrove NJ (Salem) that is either 1 generation older than Samuel sr of GA or is possibly him...the John that there is not Samuel Sr's son because he left NJ before John was of age to appear on any said NJ documents. There is supposed to a family in CT that is also connected somehow, but don't know the names. I also see a family in MD...connection possible due to closeness of vicinities don't know the HEAD names there either. From all conclusions it is highly possible that the children spread out and that as states were names, and county names changed/added and closeness of counties and states all of these families are related. Determining which John was the son of which person or which James or which Daniel or which Samuel is almost impossible family bibles are really needed along with exact birthdates and marriage records. Northumberland PA Morgan's are the son's of James the Iron monger's family 3 of his son's moved there including his son Samuel, Abel and is it Mordicai? or was it a Thomas can't remember this Samuel has been proven not to be Samuel of Homer Ga.
Note: that strings of these families in later generations or same generation ended up in NY, KY, VA, AR, GA, AL, TX, TN most named their children similarly, but patterns changed slightly such as name Samuel stopped appearing in certain strings or never appeared in them. The name Samuel may have ended up in a family as it may have been the name of a father or grandfather of a wife as tradition of naming was known to do. My question still remains is it Possible that Thomas, Edward, John, George (assuming he is same age as the above) and possibly a Samuel who appears to be floating around NJ and appears to be possibly older than Samuel Sr of Homer/Franklin Ga all brothers? Or is Samuel one in the same and a son to one of them. I have not found evidence as to the names of all children of Thomas and Jenett although it appears that I read something to the affect that James turned over his position at Durham Furnace to a Nephew. Who was the nephew??????????
