Morgan-667 and Morgan-629 appear to represent the same person because: same name, spouse in process of merge, son John on both profiles in process of merge. Thank you for reviewing, Teresa (WikiTree Arborist)

Morgan-629 and Morgan-14848 appear to represent the same person because: same birth date and death date and place.
Since his father was born in Pennsylvania in 1706, it seems unlikely that Thomas was born in Wales, and he must have been born considerably after 1715. Are we sure this person is linked to the correct parents?

Thomas is 11 degrees from Alice Paul, 14 degrees from Michael Schell and 11 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
