My Morgan line is Wrong! Need help with David L.
Posted by: Ralph McCollum (ID *****7649) Date: March 29, 2005 at 12:07:01

While checking on a McCollum family that was in Marshall Co in the 1860 and 1880 Census, I saw a listing of marriages that included a David Lafayett Morgan, 21 and Sarah Eliz. Sibert, 19 (10 Sep 1865, vol C3, Pg 292). I thought that I had my Morgan line solved when I obtained a death cert. for my gr grandfather M.C. "Mac" Morgan. It listed his parents as Lafayett and Sarah (Siburt) Morgan. The marriage record lists David Lafayett's parents as David and Mary. My previous search indicated Lafayett's parents were Achilles and Eliz. Hindsman. Who are David and Mary?? My Morgan line comes from Wetzel Co. Now this record shows them in Marshall as well. Since Sarah Sibert is the bride, this must be the correct Lafayett. Can anyone help me sort this out. All help will be greatly appreciated. Ralph McCollum
