Move from Pennsylvania to Virginia
'In 1741, John Morgan (son of Edward) and his brother Joseph received a certificate of removal from the Gwynedd Meeting to the Hopewell Meeting in Frederick County Virginia, and moved there in the 1740's. One source says he acquired land in Martinsburg, but no records have been found. Martinsburg was in the northern third of Frederick County that became part of Berkeley County in 1772, and in 1863, part of West Virginia.'
Hazel A. Spraker wrote: 'The children of John and Sarah were: (1) Elizabeth; (2) Leah; (3) William; (4) Sarah, my ancestor; and (5) Morgan, who was an orphan after his parents died.'
We know a bit about the guardian William BALDWIN, who took William and Morgan Morgan into his home after John died. Records of Stewart Baldwin (as found in his 1995 manuscript of Edward Morgan's descendants) showing WILLIAM BALDWIN was married to an Elizabeth. They had lived prior in Frederick Co VA where Elizabeth Morgan migrated with her parents from Philia Co PA. Later this couple moved to Rowan Co NC near Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone. This is also where we find other orphans of John Morgan. One of these orphans, William Morgan, in 1767 had WILLIAM BALDWIN as a witness for his deed for 200 A [acres] in Rowan Co NC. Bk 6 p.593 [record cited in Mc Cubbins Collection; Moberly-Morgan].
This same WILLIAM BALDWIN was guardian for Morgan Morgan. '16 Aug 1747 Morgan Morgan heir at law of John Morgan dec'd being upon his petition admitted to choose his guardian, made choice of Joseph Morgan & William BALDWIN.'
