The obit for Volney:
“Valentine Edgar Morgan. Valentine Morgan grew to manhood in Fredericksburg, IN.  He was left an orphan when he was a mere child and had to make his way however he could.  As a result he was not able to obtain so much as a grade school education.  He could not read a book or write a letter.  But he did pick up a surprisingly good practical education in his own experience.  However the lack of education seriously limited him all through his life and this, together with much bereavement he experience, caused him to be very quiet and reserved.  In the years 1895 he came to Dawson County, Nebraska and he has resided here ever since.

While he himself belonged to no church, so far as is known, ….He himself attended worship in the Methodist church of Lexington until he was no longer able to do so.

In 1871 Mr. Morgan married Elizabeth Bruner in Fredericksburg, Indiana.  To this union 2 daughters and a son were born.  These survive their father.  They are Mrs. Bertha Lee, Forrest Park, Illinois, Mrs Henry Miles, North Platte, Nebraska, and Mr Edward Morgan of Oshkosh Nebraska.  The mother of these three passed away in about 1885.

In April, three years later, Mr. Morgan married Mary Miles in Washington, Indiana.  To this union 10 children were born.  One daughter, Nettie passed away in 1893 at the age of 3 years.  This Mrs. Morgan passed away in 1910.  The 9 children who survive their parents are, Joseph W. Morgan and Mrs Mary Dunlap of Lexington, William A. Morgan, San Diego, California, Oscar J. Morgan, Fr. Collins, Colorado, Andrew and Frank Morgan, Cheyenne Wyoming, Mrs Marjorie Sieoff, Ainsworth, Nebraska, Mrs Bea Humpal, Ravenna, Nebraska, and Dr. Harry Morgan, Ship Surgeon on the USS Grant (at sea).

Then years after Mrs. Morgans death Mr. Morgan married Julia Fox in Lexington, Nebraska.  This was in April 1920.  Two years later Mr Morgan was again bereaved of his wife.

Five years later in 1927, Mr Morgan married Junetta Gullick in Lexington.  Mrs Gullick-Morgan survives her husband.”

When Volney married his first wife Christina Bruner he used the name Volney Morgan in 1877.  Then when he married Mary Ann Miles he used the name Valentine Morgan in 1888.  His son Thomas Edgar Morgan said his father’s name was Volney.

John moved to Floyd County, Indiana with his parents in 1815. He married Margaret Bright in Floyd County and their first child, Richard, was born in Terre Haute, Vigo County. By 1842, the family lived in Frederickbury, Washington County, where son William was born.

Thomas Albert Morgan, born 25 Aug 1805 and John Morgan, born 26 Aug 1811 were brothers born in Wheeling, West Virginia and settled in Indiana in 1826 at Fredricksburg, Indiana.”

“John B. Morgan Sr. was born in Virginia, presumably in the Shenandoah Valley.  In 1815 his, parents moved to Floyd County Indiana, in 1815, where he was raised and educated.  He entered the saddle and harness trade with his brother Thomas in 1825 in Fredericksburg, Indiana. and the business proved profitable.  The 1850 census indicated that he had $2,000 to his name, which was quite a bit for that period.“

“John’s son Kimble and Volney were the first to settle in Daviess County, Indiana.”

“Richard George Morgan was born at Terri Haute, In 8 Feb 1836.  His parents moved to Fredricksburg , Posey County, in the Spring of 1841, opening an general store and harness shop in the old building recently torn down to give place to Julian’s new building.  At that time Washington Street was the State road.  A brick hotel that stood near the wall on that street, the brick building now occupied by Thomas Richards and a few cabins constituted the town.
Mr Morgans father (John) soon erected an old fashioned English inn, where H.L. Siegs residence now stands.  It was a very large building, containing more than twenty rooms, had great double porches and was built with a view to the convenience and comfort of the traveling public.  It was destroyed by fire about 1855.”

Mildred’s children were ages seven, five, three, and less then one year when she died. Although she died in Gary, Indiana she is buried at Yorktown in Delaware County, so it may be that she had some earlier family ties to that area. Her son, Ray, now in his seventies never got to know his mother
