My next pension file is for David Morgan, my 3rd great-granfather. This is another large file. David Morgan was married twice. His much younger second wife, Catherine Ware Kincaid gave birth to a daughter just a few months before David died at age 78. Because a minor child was involved, there are many forms related to the guardianship of Seyo Gordy Morgan.
I have added links to appropriate pages in my family tree at Ancestry.com. All clickable links open in a new window.
Listing includes name, age, location, and date of affidavit. If any person has more than one affidavit, I will list the number of pages in parentheses.
