William Henry MORGAN, born 1801
My gggrandfather was William Henry MORGAN, born June 22, 1801. I had been under the impression that he was born in Jamestown, NY (that was what was written in family Bible), but I have just found out that he was born in New Canaan, CT.
He married Sarah LAFFERTY of Phila. on Mar. 10, 1824 and they had two sons: Edmund Lafferty and John Dailey MORGAN, born 1828 and 1831 respectively, Sarah died in 1834 and William married Mary Ann SNYDER (born 1804 in Phila.) in 1837.
Their children were George Peter 1842, William Henry, 1844, and Charles Snyder MORGAN (1838). All were born in Phila.
William Henry MORGAN died in 1844 in Phila.
William Henry's grandfather was George MORGAN and he was from Kilmarnock, Scotland. Family went to Wales, then to the US. I'm not sure when.
If you recognize this family, please contact me. Thanks.
The name John Dailey Morgan is more than a coincidence. There is a Homan Morgan (CT) line I am researching, and the Dailey name pops up several places.
The Morgans, Dailey's and Townsends came as a group to Northern Illinois, where I live. The Morgan line came from CT to Luzerne Cty, PA to IL.
If you have any Pedigree on W H Morgan, I would be interested in seeing it. Also, the Nelson Morgan name pops up a lot in that line.
I will be watching for your Morgan, as I hope you will for my Homan and Nelson.
Keep in mind that the area of New York between Pa and Ct was called CT in the late 1700's

I show a Samuel Dailey 1731, then his son, Joseph Dailey 1757, then Jos. son, Luther Dailey 1786.
At least Luther was in Luzerne.
Perhaps Joseph Dailey and your Nathaniel Dailey 1760 were brothers?
There was some tie-in between the Dailey, Townsend, and Morgan families--they seemed to move westward together.
My husband's ancestor was Nathaniel Dailey, born c. 1760.
We do know that he lived in Sherman/New Fairfield and
was married to Anna Cosier/Cosher daughter of Mary Mosher.
He went to Luzerne, Pa. and his son, Herman, married Hannah Tripp.
Have been searching for Nathaniel's parents as well as where
he came from. Is there any connection?
I have copy of will of David Daily (Dailey) in which he names sons, John, David, Joseph and Samuel, daughters, Elizabeth Post, Eleanor Wickizer (later Wilsey or Wiltsie). John was my ancester and settled in Boone Co., Ind. as I believe did David. Old David died 1816, Luzerne Co. The Michael Shoemaker Book has a footnote (I believe on Jenkins page) that says that Minerva Townsend married a Daily. I am not sure but think Samuel may also have traveled to Boone Co. There are a lot of Dailys there. June
