  • Notes 
    • David Morgan, Jr., was a soldier in the War of 1812, and went to the defense of Portsmouth. Another reference to him in old records show he was elected an official of the Bow chapter of the Anti-Slavery Society on Fast Day, April 4, 1839. David was a farmer, builder, and surveyor, and was always a person who would step forward to assist someone less fortunate than himself. They lived in the Bog district of Bow, New Hampshire.

      Death record says date of death is "reported for the year ending March 31, 1859," the cause of death was unknown; occupation was farmer, age 67. David's gravestone says his year of death was 1852. There is also a Helen A. Morgan listed on this stone, and I don't know who this is.
