    Notes:

    Extensive comment/discussion on genforum about Leah and other Morgans, dated 2007, here:
    http://genforum.genealogy.com/scholl/messages/545.html

    I?ve seen it reported that the Leah Morgan who married William Scholl was the sister of the Sarah Morgan who was the mother of Daniel Boone. However, I?ve also seen it said that instead Leah Morgan was the granddaughter of Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman Morgan whereas Sarah Morgan was the daughter of that Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman Morgan.

    I?ve seen it reported that Leah Morgan was born about 1732 in Somerset Co NJ. I haven?t seen any indication that Edward and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman Morgan ever lived in Somerset Co NJ. It seems more likely that if Leah Morgan?s father was named Edward Morgan then he would have been the Edward Morgan who lived near Shepherdstown who was a witness on the 1745 will of John Van Meter. That Edward Morgan has been said to have been the son of Joseph Morgan born in 1728 in Haverford, PA who married to Elizabeth Lloyd and died bef. 8 Feb 1748 or 1749 in Frederick Co., VA. If Leah was the daughter of that Edward Morgan then she would have been a great granddaughter of Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman Morgan.

    Recall that John Van Meter migrated from NJ to Monocacy in MD and then to VA near Shepardstown. Likewise my ancestor Peter Bowman migrated from NJ to VA near Linville Creek where he died about 1763. Peter Bowman was the son in law of Capt. Peter Scholl, the father of the William Scholl who married Leah Morgan. A book I haven't seen regarding the Monocacy Cemetery includes the names Scholl and Bowman in the index. Perhaps the Scholl's and Bowman's were also in the Monocacy area before migrating to VA. I would love to know what is said about the Scholl's and Bowman's in that book. The first wife of Capt. Peter Scholl was named Deborah. Some think that she was descended from Edward Morgan and Elizabeth Jarman Morgan.

    I tend to believe that William Scholl (b 1731 d 1803) married an Annette Loray Van Meter as his first wife and that she, rather than Leah Morgan, was the mother of the Peter Scholl who married Mary Boone and that she was also the mother of Peter Scholl?s brother Joseph. It seems possible that Annette Loray Van Meter may have been related to the Isaac Van Meter who was married to William Scholl's half sister Elsjen (Alice).

    Alice Van Metre was granted letters of administration on Isaac Van Meter?s estate on 7 Feb 1748. Many report that William Scholl's half sister Elsjen (Alice) Scholl married a Capt. Richard Morgan after the death of her first husband Isaac Van Meter. Could it be that this Capt. Richard Morgan was related to the Leah Morgan who married Elsjen Scholl's half brother William Scholl? And could it be that this Capt. Richard Morgan was the man who received the large grant for land in the area that became known as Shepherdstown? Capt. Richard Morgan?s will was probated in Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia December 6, 1763. By that time the children of Isaac Van Meter and Alice Scholl Van Meter would have been adults.

    The "WVa Historical Magazine Quarterly 1901-1905" indicates that the legatees in Richard Morgan?s will were daughter Mary Swearingen; daughter Sarah Morgan; daughter Olive Stockdon; son, William Morgan; son, Isaac Morgan; Samuel Stockdon, son of John; Richard and John Morgan, sons of Jacob; Jean Morgan, daughter of Jacob Morgan; son Jacob, son Abel. The executors were his son William Morgan and his son in law, Thomas Swearingen. A Robert Pearis was mentioned in the will. Perhaps he was just a witness.

    I am not aware of how the Robert Pearis was related to Capt. Richard Morgan. Richard Morgan sold 175 acres on the east side of Opeckon' Creek that he had obtained from Jost Hite to George Pearis, the elder, who in 1749 devised the land to his grandson George Pearis. It appears that George and Sarah Pearis and their family were among the families collected by Jost Hite in Philadelphia and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania about 1735. The grandson George Pearis assigned his interest in the same land to Jacob Hite on October 10, 1765. The original Pearis homestead was about 5 miles northwest of what is now Winchester VA.

    At one time Jost Hite had 175 acres on the east side of Opeckon' Creek which had been surveyed by Robert Brook in 1734. Hite assigned this tract to Richard Morgan who then sold it to George Pearis, the elder, who in 1749 devised the land to his grandson George Pearis. The original Pearis homestead was about 5 miles northwest of what is now Winchester VA. Some assume that Richard Morgan was related in some way to George Pearis, the elder. George Pearis had a son Richard Pearis who was actively involved in obtaining the assistance of Cherokee warriors during the French and Indian Wars. In 1754 Richard Pearis was working with Nathaniel Gist, the father of Sequoyah who developed the Cherokee alphabet, in attempting to obtain the assistance of Cherokee warriors.

    It is believed that Capt. Richard Morgan was first married to a woman named Jane (some say Taylor). On 23 and 24 August 1738 John Van Meter (Metre) of Orange County obtained for 100 pounds current money from Richard Morgan of the same place and his wife Jane "290 acres between the dividing of Josiah Jones and Charles Anderson's path ... near fish spring." Josiah Jones may have been a relative of the Robert Jones who married Mary Van Meter, a daughter of John Van Meter. I have not determined who the father was for Capt. Richard Morgan. Perhaps he was a brother to the Edward Morgan who married Susanna Taylor.

    Capt. Richard Morgan had children named William Morgan (ca 1723-1788) who married Drusilla Swearingen, a daughter of Thomas Swearingen III also known as Thomas of the Ferry; Jacob Morgan; Mary Morgan who married Thomas Swearingen, a son of Thomas Swearingen III; Olive Morgan who married John Stockdon; Sarah Morgan who married William Neeley; Abel Morgan (d1784) who married Elizabeth Bedinger; and Isaac Morgan who married a woman named Lethitia. Some apparently think that Capt. Richard Morgan also had a son James Morgan who married Margaret Hedges, the sister of Ruth Hedges who married Abraham VanMeter. However, that is questionable since Capt. Richard?s Morgan?s will doesn?t mention a son James and it is believed that the James Morgan who married Margaret Hedges didn?t die until he was as killed by Indians in Berkeley County West VA in the time period of 1778 to 1779.

    Capt. Richard Morgan?s sons William Morgan (b abt 1723) and Abel Morgan (b 1755?) have been said to have been born in NJ. Thus it may be that Richard Morgan was a descendant of Edward Morgan and Elizabeth Jarman Morgan who migrated from PA to NJ.

    On 8 Feb. 1748, an Elizabeth Lloyd Morgan was granted administration of estate of a Joseph Morgan. Richard Morgan and George Pearis were her securities. That Joseph Morgan is believed to have been the brother of the Sarah Morgan who was the mother of Daniel Boone and thus the son of Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman Morgan. Joseph Morgan married Elizabeth Lloyd September 8, 1728 at the Harveford MM. Perhaps Capt. Richard Morgan was the son of this Joseph Morgan.

    Some say Edward Morgan and his wife to be Margaret Elizabeth Jarman, the parents of Squire Boones wife, are believed to have arrived at Philadelphia on the ship ?The Morning Star? from Liverpool in 1683. However, Margaret Elizabeth has also been said to have been born in 1678 in Bucks, Pennsylvania. She married Edward Morgan in 1694 in Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania.

    He was the son of James Morgan and Alice Hopton. Edward Morgan has been said to have been born 1670 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to have been christened in Gwynedd, Berks Co., Pennsylvania, and to have died in 1739 in Gwynedd, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. Margaret Elizabeth Jarman is believed to have been the daughter of a John Jarman who was born 5 Oct 1654 in Llanguring, Nantmel, Wales.

    Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth first settled in the Towamencin region of PA. In 1702 Griffith Jones received a patent from the Commissioners of Property for the 600 acres in Towamencin and sold 300 acres of it to Edward Morgan by deed dated 26 February 1708.Edward Morgan was known as a tailor. On September 22, 1714 Edward Morgan received a deed for 500 acres of George Claypoole's 1000 acres in Towamencin. By 1713 Edward Morgan had apparently moved to Montgomery because in the deed from Claypool he is described as a "yeoman of Montgomery." The original Morgan Log house has been restored and preserved. The house is located on Weikel Road, between Allentown Road and Snyder Road (off Rt. 363), Towamencin Township, near Lansdale, Montgomery County PA.

    I?ve seen reference to a book "Genealogy of the Morgan Family Descendants of David Morgan? by LaHonda Jo Morgan which states that about the year 1720, the parents of David, Sarah, and Daniel Morgan, with about twenty other Quaker families from Wales emigrated to America and first settled in Bucks county, Pennsylvania and then about 1725 moved across the Delaware River a few miles above Trenton and settled near its banks and opened up a farm in what is now Hunterdon County, New Jersey.

    Obviously the date of 1720 for the immigration of Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman must be wrong if Margaret married Edward Morgan in 1694 in Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania. Also Sarah Morgan married Squire Boone in 1720. It seems unlikely that Sarah Morgan and Squire Boone moved to Hunterdon County NJ about 1725; however, if they did then their could have been some sort of contact between my ancestor Capt. Peter Scholl and the parents of Daniel Boone.

    I?ve seen it said that the children of Edward Morgan and Margaret Elizabeth Jarman included:

    William Morgan, d. bef. 29 July 1741, md. 1st in 1713 Elizabeth Roberts at the Radnor Monthly Meeting, md. 2nd, Catharine Robeson in 1731.
    Edward Morgan, d. bef. 7 May 1718 md. Margaret (?)
    Elizabeth Morgan md. 1710 to Cadwallader Morris.
    John Morgan, d. bef. 5 May 1747 in Frederick co., VA, md. 1721 to Sarah Lloyd, the marriage was witnessed by Dorothy Morgan, Edw. Morgan, William Morgan, Daniel Morgan, Sarah Boone, Squire Boone and others
    Daniel Morgan, b. 1691, d. June 1773, md 1718 at Gwynedd MM, PA Elizabeth Roberts.
    Margaret Morgan, b. 1693 d. 1750, md. 1713 Samuel Thomas
    Morgan Morgan, d. Mar/Apr 1727, md. ca. 1718 Dorothy Hughes.
    Alice Morgan, d. before 23 Oct 1742, md abt 1718 at Gwynedd MM, PA, Jenkin Evans
    Deborah Morgan, reported to have died as a child in 1699 near Philadelphia PA.
    Sarah Morgan, b. ca. 1700/1, d. 1777, md. 1720, Gwynedd MM, PA, Squire Boone.
    Mary Morgan, probably d. bef. 1755, md. John Wright.
    Joseph Morgan, b. 1702 d. 1748/9, Frederick co., VA, md. 1728, Elizabeth Lloyd.

    It appears that the Edward Morgan who married Susanna Taylor was the grandson of the Edward Morgan who married Margaret Elizabeth Jarman and that his father Joseph Morgan was the brother of the Sarah Morgan who married Squire Boone and became the mother of Daniel Boone. Perhaps that Edward Morgan (b abt 1736) was the brother of the Leah Morgan who married William Scholl. The Edward Morgan who married Susanna Taylor had a brother James Morgan b. 1746 who married an Elizabeth Taylor.

    The Joseph Morgan who married who married Elizabeth Lloyd had a brother John Morgan who married a Sarah Lloyd. On May 5, 1747, Sarah Morgan widow and relict of John Morgan was named administrator for his estate. Joseph Morgan and James Davis were her securities. Then on Aug 6, 1747 Joseph Morgan was made the administrator for the estate of Sarah Morgan. Andrew Campbell and Thomas Swearingen are also mentioned.

    Perhaps the Leah Morgan who married William Scholl was the daughter of this Joseph Morgan. Some seem to think that Leah Morgan was a first cousin of Daniel Boone presumable through a relative of Daniel Boone?s mother Sarah Morgan. I have seen one report where Leah was referred to as Leah Jarman Morgan.

    The Rachel Morgan who married Isaac Van Meter on 27 Dec 1791 in Ohio Co., Virginia was the daughter of an Edward Morgan (b 1736 d. ca. 1799, Ohio Co., VA) who married Susanna Taylor about 1763. That Edward Morgan has been said to have been the son of Joseph Morgan born in 1728 in Haverford, PA who married to Elizabeth Lloyd and died bef. 8 Feb 1748 or 1749 in Frederick Co., VA. That would mean that the Edward Morgan who married Susanna Taylor was the grandson of the Edward Morgan who married Margaret Elizabeth Jarman and that his father Joseph Morgan was the brother of the Sarah Morgan who married Squire Boone. The Edward Morgan who married Susanna Taylor could have been the brother or the father of the Leah Morgan who married William Scholl.

    2. Sarah (Sally) Scholl was born about 1740; died after 1741.

    11. Abraham Scholl was born in 1765; died after 1766.

  3. 6.  Edward "Ned" Boone was born on 30 Nov 1740 in Exeter Twp, Berks Co, Pennsylvania (son of Squire Boone, I and Sarah Morgan); died on 6 Oct 1780 in Boonesboro (Blue Licks), Kentucky.

    Notes:

    From Sarah Ridge Rockenfield's "Our Boone Families" -- page 453:

    "Edward, Son of Squire Boone Sr. and Sarah Morgan Boone was born Nov 30, 1740 in Exeter Twp. Berks Co., PA. Married Martha Bryan, daughter of Joseph and Alee Bryan and a sister to Rebecca, Daniel Boone's wife. Edward moved with his parents to the Yadkin District in N. C. when he was about 10 years old. He married Martha in the Yadkin District and their children were all born there. He went to Kentucky with his brother, Daniel Boone. He and Daniel and several other men had gone to the Blue Licks Salt Licks to boil down salt. It took 680 galls of salt water to boil down a bushel of salt. It cost a $5 Continental bill to buy a bushel of salt. On their way back to Fort Boonesborough, they stopped to let the horses graze. Edward was cracking nuts with a stone and was killed by Indians (Shawnees) on Oct 6, 1780 in Clark Co.(Boonesborough), (near Blue Lick River) KY. Martha Bryan Boone was only in her 30's when Ned was killed and she did not remarry. She lived on Boone's Creek and died in 1793 in Fayette Co., KY. Edward was a Baptist preacher and loved to sing."

    "The Pioneer and the Prairie Lawyer," Willard Mounts, Denver, 1991.
    Edward Boone's death:

    "Daniel and Edward Boone went hunting on Himkstone. Found a good grassy spot and stopped to let their horses graze. Edward Boone picked up some nuts and commenced cracking them on a stone in his lap and watching the horses while Daniel Boone said he would take a walk and come back by the time the horses were through picking; he had scarcely gone when several guns cracked and he saw two or three Indians after him. He darted off into the cane and was followed by a dog. Finally to evade him he stepped behind a tree and shot the dog as it approached. Indians came up and rolled over the dead dog, looked at it regretfully and departed. Col. Boone saw the indians but thought it wisest to remain quiet. Seven balls had been shot into Edward and he must have been killed instantly."

    Story told by John Scholl - Son of Peter and Mary Boone Scholl.

    Martha Bryan Boone's will said that Jane Boone Morgan(daughter of Edward Boone and Martha Bryan) and husband, Morgan Morgan were living a few miles East of Baton Rouge, LA . Martha Bryan Boone's will dated May 12, 1793.

    Said by more than one source possibly father of Jemima, Daniel Boone's daughter. "Spraker, "The Boone Family" page 38, 596, 70-71.

    Edward married Martha Bryan in 1758 in Yadkin River, North Carolina. Martha (daughter of Joseph Bryan, Sr and Hester Hamdon (or Hampton)) was born on 19 Nov 1737 in Winchester, Frederick Co, Virginia; died after 12 May 1793 in Fayette Co, Kentucky. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    THE MORGAN LOG HOUSE -- This 1695 medieval, 2 1/2 story log house, the only one of its kind still surviving in America, was built by grandparents of Daniel Boone, the frontiersman, and forebears of General Daniel Morgan famed Revolutionary War raider." In this house the American roots of a distinguished family tree were planted. Besides Morgan offspring, Rittenhouse, Morris, Roberts, Lloyd, Robeson and Hanks are family names on its branches. The latter being ancestors of Abraham Lincoln, Lowell Thomas, the explorer, broadcaster-author, is a descendant. Eminent local Morgans include Walter L. Morgan, a pioneer in the mutual fund industry, founder of the Willington Fund and Wellington Mgt. Co., manager of 14 Vanguard funds. This cabin erected on an 800 acre site by well-to-do Welch Quaker Edward Morgan. Near Gwynedd, PA, site of historic William Penn Inn, The Morgan House adjoins Valley Force road and Allentown Road. The latter was the escape route taken by those escorting the Liberty Bell to be hidden in Allentown's Zion Church. Morgan House is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5 p.m. Tel: (215) 368-2480. Edward Morgan's son, Morgan, had built a house on 197 acres of the original 800 acres in 1718.

    Edward Morgan and Elizabeth, his wife, both free, arrived at Philadelphia in the same ship (The Morning Star) from Liverpool, in the 9th month 1683 (20th 9th month)." (Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol 8, page 329).

    The ancestry of Edward Morgan, progenitor of the Morgan family of Montgomery County, Penn., and grandfather of explorer Daniel Boone & Edward Boone, is still a matter of speculation. One of the most objective analyses of the identity and family of Edward Morgan was made some fifty years ago by Mrs. Hazel Atterbury Spraker, in her book, THE BOONE FAMILY. Excerpts from this source are as follows:

    "There is an early record which states that "Edward Morgan and Elizabeth his wife, both free, arrived at Philadelphia in the same ship (The Morning Star) from Liverpool, in the 9th month 1683 (20th 9th month)." (Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol.8,page 329)

    "Another Edward Morgan, recorded in Radnor Monthly Meeting, was born in Merionithshire, Wales, 25 August 1679; was a son of Cadwalader Morgan, and came to Pennsylvania with his parents."

    "A third Edward Morgan is referred to by Thomas Allen Glenn in his Wlesh Founders of Pennsylvania, Vol. 2, page 1, in which it is stated that Edward Morgan of near Bala, Co. Merionithshire, a tailor, had a son named Morgan who removed to Gwynedd, PA, about 1700 and was a freeholder of 800 acres of land in Gwynedd, died in Towamencin, 1727, leaving a wife Dorothy.

    A fourth record of an Edward Morgan is found in a "History of the Family of Morgan, from the year 1089 to Present Times," by James Appleton Morgan, New York (1897-1902). In this it is stated that Edward Morgan was the son of Sir James Morgan, 4th Baronet of Llantarnum, and wife, Lady Alice Hopoton; that Edward came to America with his sister Sarah, wife of Stephen Beasley, married Margaret --- and had a daughter Sarah Morgan who married Squire Boone. No authority is given for this last statement. In this book the ancestry is carried back through many royal lines to as early as the year 605.

    At this late date it seems impossible to determine which, if any of the above Edward Morgans was the father of Sarah, and hence the grandfather of Daniel Boone. Althought his ancestry, his early life and the name of his wife, may always remain in obscurity, we yet have a brief history of the later life and children of Edward of Gwynedd, as given in "Historical Collections of Gwynedd by Howard Jenkins, page 410." This history of Edward Morgan reads as follows:

    "The first settler in Gwynedd or its vicinity named Morgan, was Edward. He seems to have been here as early as 1704, as the road upward through Gwynedd, made in that year, was to go as far as his place. He was a tailor by trade, a Welshman by birth, no doubt, and probably advanced in years when he came. He had lived previously near Philadelphia. In February, 1708, he bought 300 acres of land in what is now Towamencin, of Griffith Jones, merchant, Philadelphia. The tract lay along William John's land, and was therefore on the township line. In 1714 he bought 500 acres more, nearby, of George Claypool of Philadelphia, who, like Griffith Jones,was a speculative holder of Towamencin lands. By 1713 he had apparently moved to Montgomery; in the deed from Claypool he is described as a "yeoman of Montgomery."

    Edward Morgan no doubt had several children. His sons probably received and held the Towamencin lands. In the list of 1734, for that township there appear: Joseph Morgan, 200 acres, Daniel Morgan, 200; John Morgan, 100. In 1727, Morgan Morgan of Towamencind died leaving a will in which he mentions his wife Dorothy, his brothers Joseph, John and William, his two sons Edward and Jesse (both minors), and his niece Elizabeth, John's daughter."

    Notes:

    (WFT Vol 2, No 3979)
    Joseph Bryan was the first of our direct Bryan ancestors to be born in America. Some reccords indicate the year as 1719 and others show 1720. Born in Chester County, PA, Joseph lived there until 1734 when he moved with his family to Virginia. is father, a leader in the formation of a new Quaker settlelment at Frederick Town (now winchester), was one of the builders of "The Hopewell Monthly Meeting of Frederick".

    It was here in about 1737 that Joseph first married and the name of his wife remains unknown. They probably had only two children, both daughters, and the best guess is that the first was Martha, born about 1737 and named for Joseph's mother. Rebecca, the second daughter, was born 9 January 1739.

    Most biographers of the Bryan family appear to have been unaware of Joseph's first family and have attributed all of his children to his second wife known as "Aylee." Her real name was Alice (as proven by legal documents) and her surname was probably Linville. "Aylee" was no doubt a family nickname. This oversight will no doubt be perpetuated forever, because some researchers use material distributed or published in the past as factual. The clue to the fact that Joseph was married twice can be found on page 508 of Hazel Atterbury Spraker's "The Boone Family," published in 1922. Then on page 509 of this book, Joseph Bryan, Jr. states that he was the half brother of Daniel Boone's wife (Rebecca). None of the numerous volumes in our collection of Boone family history contain this vital information. Bobbie Callaway, historian for the Callaway Family Assocaition, has long suspected that Martha and Rebecca Bryan were the offsprings of a first wife, and that Joseph Jr. was not the oldest son of Joseph, as has been published over and over. As one of the most competent reseasrchers it has been our privilege of knowing, Bobbie has gathered sufficient data to show Joseph Jr., who lived to age 92, was born about 1752 when Rebecca was approximately 13 years old.

    Before the Reolutionary War most eligible men served in the Colonial Militia when called upon to do so, and Joseph was no exception. In Augusta County Virginia Court records dated 15 September 1742, we find the following entry: "Joseph Bryan delinquent at muster of Capt. Hugh Thompson at Court Martial. Later excused when returned bearing Arms".

    The first deed recorded in Frederick Co., VA, dated 13 April 1744, shows that Joseph Bryan purchased land from Alexander Ross. We presume that Joseph and his young family lived in the Winchester area of Frederick County until his first wife died.

    Indications are that Joseph then moved up the Shenandoah Valley to Augusta County with his father and the rest of the family in about 1746, where he married his second wife Alice. He remained here after Morgan Bryan and family moved to North Carolina on 1748, probably because of his new family ties. It is believed, however, that his two daughters, Martha and Rebecca went to North Carolina with their grandparents and lived with them until both were married. This part in the life of Rebecca no doubt gave rise to the erroneous assumption that Morgan and Martha (Strode) Bryan were her parents.

    We believe that Joseph and Alice lived in Virginia until about 1755 where their first two children, Samuel and Joseph Jr., were born, and then decided to join the rest of the Bryan Family in North Carolina. An Augusta County Court record dated 20 March 1755 stated that Daniel Harrison initiated a suit against Joseph Bryan regarding an attachment levied on Joseph before his removal from the County. This attachment assured Harrison of collecting any debts when Joseph's property was sold.

    Once in North Carolina, Joseph settled in what is now Davie County and seems to have prospered. He was described by George Soelle, a Moravian minister who preached in many parts of the County, as a "well-to-do polite and affable man who cannot read, but well-to-do." He lieved here for about 43 years where the rest of his family was born and grew up.

    By this time much of his family had moved to Kentucky, and even at the age of about 78 undertook his last big venture. He and Alice moved to Kentucky in 1798 where two of his sons and a son-in-law had established large plantations. He acquired an estate of about 14,000 acres at Floy's Fork, Shelby County. He died early in 1805 at age 85 in Jefferson County and left a will dated 20 Nov. 1804 in which he names his second wife and all of his surviving children, including his daughter Rebecca Boone. The will follows:

    Jefferson County, KY
