Cyntha Morgan was the wife of Joshua Morgan who came to Texas in 1838 and settled in Lamar county. He received a land grant from the Republic of Texas in 1841. His wife had died in 1840 and he then married Mrs. Byntha Bonnas in 1842. Her grave is north of Honey Grove near the Allens Chapel community on the Elbert J. Allen survey. About two months after Cyntha died, Elbert J. Allen married Joshua Morgan’s daughter, Jemima. Joshua joined the gold rush in 1849 and left for California. He was on a ship that sank off Cape Horn. Cyntha’s tombstone is of native rock and well preserved.
