DANIEL MORGAN was born December 23, 1796, in Chatham County, N. C. His parents were William and Milla (Brewer) Morgan, both natives of the same State. They both died of a fever the same day in 1804. They are buried on Hall River, N. C. Our subject came to Christian County, Ky., in 1805, with his grandfather and uncle-Nathaniel and George Brewer. Daniel is one of the two oldest men in this part of the county, James Wilke being the other. Father Morgan had five brothers. These brothers never lived together after the death of their father, and so far as known, he is the only brother living. He was the second child, and started without means. He now owns 500 acres of land, which he has divided among his children. He was married to Abarilla Martin, of this county, November 18, 1817. She died in 1847. She was a member of the Baptist Church. In 1848, he married Rebecca Tucker, of this county. She died in 1860. She was a member of the Baptist Church. She left four children, viz.: William D., James A., Nannie E. and Mary E., all of whom are living. Nannie E. is the wife of Samuel Cowan. Their children are Samuel F. and William D. In 1862 he married Susan Leveritt, of this county, but a native of South Carolina. She died in 1872, aged fifty-seven years. She also was a member of the Baptist Church. Father Morgan has been a member of the Baptist Church the past fifty years, and a Deacon in that church nearly forty years.
