“June  12, 1889, New Philadelphia items–Thomas Morgan Sr. passed the way of all flesh, June 10th , of paralysis.  Deceased was 84 years old and leaves a family of four children, one son and three daughters, who still survive him.  One of his sons, Clark, who departed this life several years ago, met his death while out defending the Stars and Stripes.  His son Thomas R. Morgan lives in Campbellsburg.  Mr. Morgan was pioneer saddle and harness maker, having carried on the business here alone for 30 years. He was an industrious good citizen and a member of the Baptist Church.”

“Thomas Albert Morgan was born on Aug 25 1805, either in Wheeling, Virginia (now West Virginia) or the Shenandoah Valley.  One of his grandchildren, Belle Meadows, recalled a story he related about having been lost in the mountains of Kentucky at the age of five, after trying to follow his father who was going hunting.  He became lost in the woods overnight while family and friends tried to locate him.  A Negro discovered him the following morning.  this story suggests that the Morgan family may have lived in Kentucky for a time.

In 1815, his parents moved to Floyd County, Indiana, where Thomas was reared and educated.  He moved with his brother to Fredericksburg in 1825 and opened a saddle and harness shop.  this business flourished and he became a prominent member of society.  Although not rich, he was financially sound.  On 26 Sept 1827, Thomas married Harriet Buckman in Floyd County, Indiana, who was the daughter of Benjamin and Eunice Buckman II.  They resided in Washington and Floyd Counties for the remainder of their lives and Thomas was renowned and respected throughout the area for the quality work he did.  Through out  the years they lived in Fredericksburg, Salem, New Albany, Canton and New Philadelphia.  On July 4 1885, Thomas and Harriet won a five dollar gold piece for having been married the longest of anyone present, 58 years.  Thomas died in New Philadelphia on 10 June 1889 and Harried died there on 18 March 1889.  They are buried in the Canton Cemetery in Canton, Indiana.”
