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.”
