My great-great-grandfather William F. Taylor declared in his Civil War pension application that he was married to Margaret Morgan in Walker County, Georgia on 10 February 1859. We also know from family Bible records that Margaret was born on 30 November 1839. That clue lead to her Morgan family.
From this starting point, her ancestry is established as:
- Generation 1: Samuel Morgan (1753-1833)
- Generation 2: John Morgan (1784 -1850s)
- Generation 3: James J. Morgan (22 March 1817 – 1860s)
- His daughter Margaret Morgan married William F. Taylor
