About the only Morgan connection to what became Chambers County of which I am readily aware prior to the War Between the States was the 1835 Mexican land grant conveyed to Hugh Morgan. This is located in what is now the extreme northwestern corner of Chambers County, on Cedar Bayou, and continues across the county line into southwestern Liberty County (originally it was all Liberty County). I'm not aware that Hugh Morgan ever actually lived there. After The War, but before 1900, at least two other Morgan families who became more or less semi-permanent faces moved into the county: Dr. Asa Morgan (Cedar Bayou area, south of Barbers Hill) & George Morgan (north central part of the county, in the Wallisville area). Don't know if this will help, but is result of a very quick census and records sweep.
