  1. Hello:
    My Name is Donnie Morgan and the Morgans I’m related to finally settled in Tangipahoa Parish, in Kentwood, La. I am the son of Tom Morgan who was born in Monticello, Ms. the Son of James Murphy Morgan and Lora Mabel Lambert, who is the Son of James (Jim) Murphy Morgan and Melvina (Nellie) Lambert, Who was the Son of Seaborn Morgan and Mary Ann (Gincey) Hart, Who was the Son Of John Morgan and Lydia Ann Nations. I have been told they all worked in the saw mills/pulp wood and lived in cities of Chatawa, Monticello, Magnolia, and Liberty, Ms. but not sure.
    Looking for any Information on John Morgan Born In most likely Lawrence count Mississippi. He was Married to Lydia ann Nations, And had a son name Seaborn who was married to a Mary Ann (Gincey) Hart. I believe John’s father was William who was son of Morgan Morgan III who settled in east feliciana, La. and were descendants of Daniel Boone but can’t confirm this. Also I don’t know where, who or what tribe but We Morgans have always heard there was Native American Ancestors in our tree as well, it’s not known wether it is on the Morgan side or Lambert Side.

    Any Info on John Morgan or Seaborn Morgan would be deeply appreciated.
    Thank you and may God Bless you abundantly.
    Donnie Morgan
