  • Note: !OBITUARY: Died on May 8, 1856, at the residence of his daughter, Mary Robertson, Abiah Morgan, in his 69th year. He was born and raised in Edgefield District, between Stephens' Creek and Savannah River. He was too young to be in the Revolutionary War, but he was active in dispersing from the country the hordes of robbers and outlaws that infested the country after the war. He was a very wicked man in those days; but by a fireside sermon, delivered to him by a couple of old pious women, he was made to see the error of his ways, and turn the reform. He joined the Baptist Church, at Calhoun's Mills, soon after, where his membership ever remained. He was confined to his room nearly 12 months, with general debility (obituary by G. W. M. in Edgefield Advertiser of June 4, 1856). 5 6
