Hi Meg.

It could very well be! This is what information I have gathered (in part with the help of generous people doing look-ups!)

Morgan wagon was the grandfather of my daughter's father's father (sorry, that was a bit convoluted) It seemed to him that Morgan had three brothers that went to the States who were in the lumber business.

Anyway, Morgan had a brother William born around 1861...

Do you have any more information about William that could link him to the family? I must admit, the name Morgan was an advantage as it's a less common than William!

On free BMD I found a possible Maidstone marriage for a William Wagon of that era, to one of the two women listed:
He was not found in 1901 census


Marriages Jun 1892
BANFIELD Caroline Maidstone 2a 1230
Fry Thomas Alfred Maidstone 2a 1230
PEARCE Clara Lydia Maidstone 2a 1230
WAGON William Maidstone 2a 1230

This is the census information that I have:
