Thank you for this post.

I am not sure the land was in Murray Co. because another record shows Henry Co., GA so it may be that the handwriting was difficult to transcribe. Both Thos. J. Morgan & Eldridge Morgan were in Henry Co., GA from abt. 1833-1848 timeframe. I think they were closely related & Thos. J. Morgan had several children listed on the 1840 Henry Co., GA census -- haven't found any of them after that !!! Thos. J. Morgan bought land from Thos. Owensby who md. Nancy Morgan (sister to Eldridge Morgan) in Henry Co., GA. It seems Eldridge Morgan lost the same land or part of the same land in a lawsuit.

I have looked at the Morgan families in Effingham Co., GA but haven't found a provable connection so far.

So, I'll keep looking for info on this Thomas J. MORGAN -- oh, brother where are thou???

Thank you again & happy tree climbing.
