Ren Neville, I have been going over your tree and it sure is very good.You have done a lot of work.I too have Morgan line in my family.Maybe you can help me.How did you tie your Samuel Morgan 1750 as being the husband of Nancy Hill and ended up Ga.Here is what I have come up with so far on my Morgans.Peter Morgan born 1745 Pa.wife Mary Vansant b; Bucks co. Pa. Peter Morgan is burried in Dayton,Oh.but left a will saying he was Living in Green Co. Oh next county over from Dayton Oh.The only marriage that I can find is Charity Vansant married Samuel Morgan in N.J.in 1762.They were from Bucks co.Pa. Mary Vansant Morgan belived Mother and father also was
Married there in 1728 John Vansant and Rebecca Cox.There is a Lot of info on the Bucks co. History and it gives James Morgan as being the father of Rev .Daniel Morgan and all so being brother of Sarah Morgan Boone. My Peter and Mary Morgan had a daughter Charity Morgan and that is my line. I do believe Samuel Morgan son of James Morgan is my Peter Morgan. Because they were the Only Morgans living in Bucks co. Pa in the 1700"s by tax records. Here is copys of what I have.

HEINLEINS and MORGANS
HEINLEINS and MORGANS of Durham township, Bucks county. All the Heinleins in America are descendants of Matheis Heinlein, who with his wife, son George, and daughters Sarah and Eva, took passage in the ship "Bannister." Captain John Doyle, from Amsterdam, and qualified at Philadelphia, October 31, 1754. He settled in Durham township on a tract of land on the southern slope of Bucher Hill. A farm now belonging to B. F. Fackenthal was part of this tract, the other portion reaching over the hill into
Northampton county. This entire tract became the property of his son George. Eva, the oldest daughter, became the wife of George Bernhard Horn. Sarah, the other daughter, became the second wife of James Morgan, ironmaster of Durham Furnace, and father of Daniel Morgan, the famous general of the Revolution. Daniel Morganís biographer, in a fit of romance, tells the story that the General, when a boy of fifteen, left his home solely by reason of his dislike to his stepmother. At the same time he sets Danielís departure in the year 1752, which is the correct period, and just two years before Sarah Heinlein arrived in America. She was married to James Morgan in 1765, and, tradition says, "made an excellent wife for her husband, helping to rear the children from his first wife." These were Mordica, Abel, James, Samuel and Olivia. Abel
became a noted physician in Philadelphia. Mordica, James and Samuel were
lumbermen, and were purchasers of large tracts of land in the upper Delaware and Susquehanna river country. Mordica purchased four hundred acres in Monroe county in 1785, on which he erected extensive saw-mills, and also four hundred acres in Luzerne county as early as 1776. James and Samuel also purchased four hundred acres each in this same year. Mordica and James finally settled at a place called Morganís Hill, in Wayne county, Pennsylvania, where their stepmother, Sarah Heinlein, passed her widowhood. General Daniel Morgan made a visit to his brother on one of his trips from the north, the place being about twenty miles from the Delaware river, along which the old mine road traversed, the road generally used by the troops in passing between the Delaware and Hudson rivers. Probably Danielís cause for leaving home was more through the spirit of adventure than by any other reason. This same characteristic we find in his favorite cousin, Daniel Boone (Booneís mother was a sister of James Morgan). The Boone family lived about this time near the Lehigh river, in Allen township, Northampton county. Squire George Boone and James Morgan were close friends. Dr. Abel Morgan and Captain George Heinlein never forgot their friendship of their boyhood days, and were close friends during the entire period of the Revolutionary War. Dr. Morgan was surgeon of the Eleventh Regiment. Pennsylvania Line. George Heinlein was a very popular man and became captain of the Durham township militia, served all through the war, and afterwards secured additional land and pursued
farming. He always took an active part in public affairs, and at the time of his death, which occurred October 2, 1805, at the age of sixty-three, he was the possessor of the entire east end of Bucher Hill. He was buried with great honors in the family burying ground on the plantation. This quarter acre lot is along the road at the extreme end of Mr. Fackenthalís farm, and through neglect is fast becoming obliterated. In it are buried all the first generations of Heinleins, Longs, Buchers and others. His family consisted of eleven children: Margaret, wife of Nicholas Brotzman; Eleanora, wife of John Bucher;
Sarah, wife of Abraham Bucher; Lawrence, James, George, William, Reading, John, Ann and Catharine. All the Heinleins living in the regions roundabout are descendants of James, who married Ann Bay, only daughter of
Hugh Bay and his wife Elizabeth Bell, both of Philadelphia. After Hugh Bayís death Dr. Abel Morgan married the widow, and removed to what is now Morganís Hill, in Williams township, about one mile below Easton. They had only one daughter, Hannah, who died while yet in her teens. James Heinlein is credited with changing the spelling of the name from Heinlein to Hineline, yet the baptismal records of his family show the former way of spelling. His children were George Bay Heinlein, Hugh Bay Heinlein, Abel Morgan Heinlein, Edward Bay Heinlein, Morgan Bay Heinlein, Jacob Bay Heinlein, John Bay Heinlein, Henry Bay Heinlein, Hannah Eliza, wife of William Raub.
They all were born prior to 1820. The children of George Bay Heinlein are: Hugh Abraham, born 1823; Joseph, 1825; John William, 1829; Samuel Morgan, 1832; Susan, 1834; Daniel Edward, 1836; Ann Shultz, 1839. The children of Joseph Heinlein are: Mary, married Kemmerer; Emma, married Edelman; Charles, Frank and Clara, married Kleinhans,
all of whom have children, and some grandchildren. Hugh, Abel, Jacob and John, with their entire families, about the year 1860 removed to Ohio, where their descendants are quite numerous. The descendants of Morgan and Edward are to be found in Warren county, New Jersey, and Bucks and Northampton counties, Pennsylvania. Henry died without issue.

Comment: Donna Pitts thinks Samuel Morgan and Peter Morgan are one in the same. I do not see the connection as they appear to be different people. Any information on these folks is appreciated......
Thanks for Looking Over my info. As for Samuel Morgan son of James Morgan. Two other researches Dr.Duncan MacTavish and Claude Crase, author of Cress/Crace Book, both agree this is our Samuel Peter Morgan. Due to the Marriage record of Samuel Morgan of Bucks Co. Pa and Charity Vansant in N.J. in1762 it is going to be hard to disprove and also nameing there children Samuel Morgan and Charity Morgan. As Claude Crase said to me in an Email "You have really done yourself proud" Ren I'm not trying to get you to change your tree.I just ask you to Look at my info and Put your insite and you have.

Hi Kim, I believe your Isaiah Morgan is the son of Samuel Morgan and Charity Vansant...who was thought at one time to be my ancestor, Samuel Morgan Sr, who moved to Georgia.There is a record of Samuel and Charity's marriage in Hunterdon County ,NJ May of 1762...I have a copy of your Samuel's will of 1805 in Northumberland County, Shamokin Twp where he finally moved to.He remarried a Mary Sands in May of 1777 in Bensalem Twp,Bucks County....there is a Tax List of 1779 of Bensalem which has his name as well as Stephen Sands, her father...as for Charity's parents, Isaiah Vansandt and Charity VanHorn..and it goes way back......I still have all of this in case
someone else might have need of it someday...and a few to prove my point that that particular Samuel was not mine LOL..please email me if you are interested?

I found the information you sent most interesting. I really think
that Charity Vansant was not the wife of my Samuel Morgan Sr. I think
he was married to Nancy Hill. Charity would have been twelve years
old and he would have been twelve, also if that info was correct.

Hope this finds you and your family Well.My Peter Morgan still hasn't his Finale resting Place in the Morgan Lines.For sure he is not Samuel Morgan that married Charity Vansandt,as I wised he would have been it would have made my research a Lot easier.Samuel Morgan that married Charity Vansandt still ties into my family tree because he married a Vansandt.Charity Vansandt Morgan would have been a Cousin of my Mary Vansandt Morgan.Below is some info I have come across and I thought you might Like to have.

William apparently did not marry until several years after his arrival in Richland, as his first child, Jeremiah, was not born until 1747. William's wife was Ann Roberts, a member of one of the earliest families settling in the Richland neighborhood.
William died on a part of his plantation 4 mo. 12, 1800. By his will made 12 mo. 2, 1797, and probated 5 mo. 8, 1800, he directed that the plantation on which his son William lived, containing 93 acres and 146 perches, should be sold. The saw mill with a tract of land was devised to his son Jesse, and remained in the family for several generations. In addition to legacies to his several children, he left to his sister, Ann, ten pounds if she should survive
him, otherwise to her daughter Mary. Ann Heacock, the youngest daughter of Jonathan, married James Morgan, son of another of the earliest Richland settlers, and the brother of Susanna Morgan, who married Ann's
brother, Jonathan. James Morgan was born in Abington, Pennsylvania, in 1721, but was taken by his parents to Richland while an infant. His marriage to Ann Heacock occured on 5 mo. 23, 1745. After their marriage James and Ann moved to Darby, near Ann's father, where James operated a mill. In 1753 they returned to Richland, and lived there and in Rockhill for several years. Ann's brother, William, owned the mill in Rockhill, and James Morgan may
have worked for his brother-in-law. James Morgan inherited 200 acres of land in Richland under his father's will, and on the death without issue of his younger brother Isaac, he inherited the share of the land Isaac had received from their father, but the title was disputed by reason of a double conveyance. James and Ann later returned to Chester County, and James died there 7 mo. 2, 1790. Their daughter Sarah married her cousin. Jeremiah, son of
William Heacock. Thus the descendants of Jeremiah, of whom there are many, trace their ancestry to Jonathan Heacock through two of his children.
Jonathan Heacock, the second son of Jonathan the emigrant, married Susanna Morgan, daughter of John Morgan, on 3 mo. 9, 1745. Jonathan had presented a certificate from the Chester Monthly Meeting the previous month, 2 mo. 18, 1745, and was married before the Richland meeting. He was by trade a weaver, and we may suppose that this is a continuance of the family tradition from his father, who was a wool merchant. Jonathan was the executor of the will of his mother-in-law, Deborah Morgan,
(*)Roberts, "Early Friends Families".
upon her death in 1750. Under the will he received a part of the Morgan tract, and seems to have lived there for several years.
Jonathan and Susanna may have returned to Chester county with their family before the children reached maturity. Their son, John, married into the Pyle family of Chester county in 1783, and another son, Jonathan, is shown by the minutes of the Richland meeting to have
left Chester with wife and children, 4 mo. 18, 1782, to have remained two months in Richland and then gone to Haverford. This is the family which later settled in Canada. The date and place of death of Jonathan and Susanna are not known.
JOHN MORGAN FAMILY
John Morgan, the father of Susanna Morgan Heacock, and thereby our ancestor in the same generation as Jonathan Heacock the emigrant, was probably a native of Wales, and a brother of Joseph, William and Morgan all of whom settled around Gwynedd. Pennsylvania. John Morgan was a member of Abington Monthly Meeting in 1716, and his name appears on the records of that meeting several times prior to 7 mo. 26, 1720, when he is reported as
having married out of unity and his apology therefor was rejected "whereby he remains out of unity". This marriage was with Deborah Woodruff; subsequent records, including his will, show that he had been previously married. He was a tailor by trade, but seems to have been more of a farmer. He purchased a tract of land in Abington township, now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1699, and other lands in the same locality in 1706.
He removed to Richland soon after his second marriage, purchasing 400 acres of the Peter Lester tract in 1724 from Thomas Greasley. He continued to reside on a plantation of 200 acres, part of this purchase, until his death in 1743. His widow, Deborah made application for membership at Richland in 1745, and their children seem to have been recognized as members when they came to adult age, but there is no record of their birth at Richland. The will of John Morgan dated January 11, 1741, was probated March 9, 1743, and is of record
at Doylestown. He described himself as "aged and infirm". To "Deborah, my present wife late Deborah Woodruff" he gives use of all his real and personal estate for life or widowhood. At her death or marriage the 200 acres upon which he lived is to go to his son, James, and the other 200 acres to be divided equally between his other two sons. Isaac and John. He also devises to his wife Deborah 25 acres of land at Abington for life, at her death to pass to his daughters Sarah, Susanna and Deborah. Some of his children were still minors, and William Nixon and Morris Morris were named as guardians for them, and his wife Deborah was named sole executrix. Deborah continued to reside on the plantation in Richland until her death in 3rd mo. 1750. Her will made 9 mo. 11, 1749, devises to her son-in-law, Jonathan Heacock, all her estate, real and personal, to be sold to pay her just debts, the residue to be distributed, and he is made executor. She, however, devises to her son John Morgan, 100 acres of the land that is within the 200 acres that his father left him and Isaac,
but "which I purchased of Joseph Jones, after my husband's death". Title to this land was disputed. John Morgan seems to have regarded it as part of the tract he acquired from Thomas Greasley, while Peter Lester, Jr., had a deed for 200 acres from his father, which he conveyed to Joseph Jones in 1741. Peter Lester had sold the same land to Thomas Greasley in 1724, but it cannot be determined whether this sale was made by Peter Sr. or
Jr., as the deed itself is not of record, being only cited in the deed to John Morgan, Jr. Deborah Morgan also gives legacies to her three daughters, Sarah Dennis, Info above and below came to me from Brenda Miller.The will is husband of Charity Vansandt.
