Morgan Family - Welch Roots
The Morgan Family is a much-researched family. This is the family which Daniel Boone (of Kentucky Fame), Justin Morgan (The Morgan Horse), and Henry Morgan (The Famous Buccaneer) all descended from. The problem was, putting all the information together. So many have researched the family pertaining directly to their family lineage. We have attempted to join as much information of the families together and try to put together the whole picture. Several of the greatest difficulties we faced were: 1) The families all named their children the same. With several Johns or Thomas's in the same generation it sometimes got difficult to connect them to the proper parents. 2) Within the Morgan family it was very common that first cousins married. The different families are intertwined many times. This was quite common in the old days, as I have run into this with other families I have researched also. Because of the intermarriage in the Morgan Family I am my own 14th cousin. I am proud to say that I am the 2nd half cousin - 9 times removed to Justin Morgan, and the 4th cousin - 9 times removed to Daniel Boone. It may be distant relations at this point, but I'll grab the glory.
On this website, I will only be posting the direct family line as it pertains to my family. My direct line does not include names like Daniel Boone or Justin Morgan so please feel free to search my database on rootsweb for quite a bit of the family genealogy. You can also click on the links above for a little information I have posted about each of the aforementioned persons.
I must, at this point, give credit where credit is due. If it weren't for my sister, Annette, we would not know this information. Thank you, Annette, for putting in long hard sleepless nights gathering and deciphering all this data.
