Does anyone have a place of death for John Morgan? Is it possible that your John Morgan married again after Sarah's death? My GGGrandfather was John M Morgan who supposedly came from Georgia ? and married Nancy Beene in Itawamba County, MS in 1844. Nancy Beene was the daughter of Lemuel Beene of MS. John M and wife Nancy had three children. William Beene Morgan, Mary Morgan and my GGrandmother Martha Jane Morgan. On the 1850 Census Nancy Beene Morgan was listed as a widow. Nancy Morgan was about 30 when she married John. I haven't been able to trace the Morgans past John. John was listed as a successful planter and apparently owned a plantation in Claiborne Parish, La at the time of his death. The plantation may have been one of his father in laws properties however. Nancy's younger brother Obediah Beene came to help her run the place after John's death. Nancy remarried a man named Jones later.
