    7. [S1180] Notes of Lloyd Francis Morgan and Maxine Morgan, FRANCIS GRANT MORGAN.
      Francis Grant Morgan was better known to his friends as Frank. He was born November 29, 1865 in Putnam County, Missouri to William "Bill" Morgan and Mary Jane Hastings Faler Morgan. Frank was the third of six children. He grew to manhood in Missouri, but about 1892, he and a cousin, John William Lynch, visited the Garfield County area of Washington. Richard Graham and his wife, Samantha Hastings Graham, were living near Columbia Center, a small community that was located few miles south of the present town of Pomeroy, Washington. Samantha Graham was a sister of Frank's mother and she and her husband were helpful in getting Frank settled in that area. Frank went back to Missouri, but soon returned to purchase a farm located about a mile west of Columbia Center. In November 1895, Frank married Elizabeth Miller, daughter of Chris and Sarah Miller. The Miller family was living about a mile Southwest of the Brockman farm and just east of Neible Gulch. (As a note of interest, we found that Elizabeth's oldest sister Dora, married Buel Able and they settled to the lower end of what is now known as Able's Ridge an area well know in the recent past for it's excellent elk hunting)

      Frank and Elizabeth were the parents of five sons: Denny and Francis were born near Columbia Center, Harold and Clarence were born on the John Ashby farm in the Falling Springs Area about 3 miles southwest of Pomeroy and Wilbur as born in the new house on New York Gulch Road. Frank moved his family to Ashby farm about 1905 or 06 and while living there, he bought land farther west in the middle part of New York Gulch. Frank hired two brothers to build a house on his property and when it was finished, he moved his family there. The year was about 1912. Clarence recalls that when he started school on the Pataha, it was in the old school house. A new school was built shortly thereafter. Frank's younger brother Jessie, never married. He had an acreage on the New Your Gulch up the road from Frank's Place. Jessie worked for Frank quite a bit, but when Frank's two older boys reached their late teens, disagreements developed between them and their Uncle Jessie. Jessie moved to California where he spent the remainder of his life. Frank's brother, William "Will", arrived in Washington with his family when Frank was farming the Ashby place. Will moved onto his brother's farm near Columbia Center. Dad (Harold) recalled how Hanna would chase the kids out of her berry patch because she wanted to preserve them. He said she had a big berry patch and she was very proud of it. Later Will purchased a farm about 1/2 mile down the road from where Frank and Elizabeth lived on New York Gulch.They were living there when Will died and his oldest son Frank ( most often referred to as "little Frank") ran the farm for his mother for about 3 years. About this time she married Jake Morgan who was a half nephew of her first husband. Little Frank soon decided to leave, and in the company of a friend, traveled to the Yakima Valley and obtained jobs picking apples. Soon after Little Frank left, Jake and Hanna moved to New York Bar. Later, Little Frank recalled working for Denny for 2 or 3 years when Denny was farming on the South Deadman.

      Sometime after Will died, Frank became ill with Parkinson's Disease. Being restricted in his working ability, he decided to purchase the farm on the lower Deadman. He felt this smaller farm would be easier for him to work. This farm was once owned by Grandfather, Walter Long and the birthplace of my mother. Denny had purchased the Simpson Place on the hill north and east of his father's land in New York Gulch. He had been doing the work on Frank's (his father) land. As Frank's health deteriorated, he found himself unable to work, so rented the Deadman farm to Francis and moved back to New York Gulch. His health grew progressively worse and they finally moved to Pomeroy where he lived until his death in 1934.

      My recollections of my Grandpa Morgan are very dim. I remember him, as in very poor health, mostly confined to his bed. Grandma Morgan lived about a year after his death, but I am certain that 10 years of caring for her husband had taken a severe toll on her health. I remember her as a kind and loving person and she always had Royal-Ann cherries for me when I would visit her. I thought they Were something real special. It was said of Elizabeth that she was of a kind and gentle nature but you had best be ready to defend yourself if you said an unkind word about any of her sons. Submitted by Lloyd and Maxine Morgan

    8. [S915] Death Notice or Obituary, Frank Morgan Dies: Funeral Tomorrow Here 40 years; Left Host of Friends to Mourn His Passing, obituary, East Washingtonian, March 8, 1934.
      Frank Morgan, well known farmer of New York Gulch section, died at 1:30 this Thursday morning, at the family home on West High Street. He had been a invalid for nearly 10 years. Francis Grant Morgan, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Morgan, was born in Putnam County Missouri, November 28, 1865, and would have been 69 years of age had he lived until his next birthday. He came west when 28 years of age and located on Pataha Flat. He married Addie Elizabeth Miller, November 28, 1895, on his thirtieth birthday. In 1904 Mr Morgan and family moved to the Ashby place, remained there 12 years, then moved to New York Gulch, where he acquired a considerable area of farm and pasture land. Owing to ill health, Mr. and Mrs. Morgan moved to Pomeroy about 4 years ago, the farm being leased out. During the more that 30 years actively spent in farming, Frank Morgan acquired a reputation for honorable dealings, and counted his friends by the score. He was successful in his undertakings, showing good judgement and the industry necessary to make them succeed. He will be missed by many who will remember him for his splendid qualities.

      Surviving are his widow, and five sons, Denny, Francis, Harold, Clarence and Wilbur all residents of Garfield County, also a brother, Jessie Morgan, of San Francisco; a sister Elizabeth Morgan, and a nephew, John Morgan, both of Louisburg, Kansas, and seven grandchildren.
