type in Daniel Morgan and go to wikipedia. There appear to be at least 3 possibly 4 Dan Morgan's or Daniel Morgan's who were in the military, but I suspect that information is getting mixed up as to who is who and the same information is being posted. Daniel Morgan of Wikipedia topic, his story may be being mixed up with a southern Daniel Morgan beyond Va that people are referring to as General Daniel Morgan. I have seen the title of a Col. Daniel Morgan information on him on an article or history or some sort of strange posting that appeared to be about a seminar or something in regards to him. It gave no information though. I have not found a list of children for Thomas and Jenett Morgan anywhere so I can't determine any other children for them other than James Morgan Iron Monger, but since he gave his position at Durham Furnace to a nephew it appears he would have had to have had at least 1 brother or sister. I suspect a lot of people are making assumptions on most of James descendants without documented proof other than copying other's pages and maybe hearing a family name and assuming which person of that name was who. Without family bibles, birth certificates most is assumption unless a census listed the names and ages of the occupants of a household, which seems to be a later practice and early census just listed numbers. Almost all of the Morgan's do appear to be cousins, even if slightly distant due to generations, though except there does appear to be another string that came to America in NORTH or South Carolina -I'm not so sure that they too aren't cousins in Wales, but may not have known it and I think they did end up in some of the same areas as the other Morgan's in South Carolina and then further south, but I can't quite work that one out. The fact that children were born to 1 family sometimes throughout a 20 year period doesn't help because birth's from one generation overlap with birth's of another generation. It is all very difficult, the purpose of naming a child the way they did it was to keep the families connected, but it only has caused more confusion especially with the burning of documents. Churches that were around may be the better key if they still have documents.
