Morgan Family of Jackson County, Tennessee

Job MORGAN was born 7 Mar 1771 in Burke Co. NC
and died 1 Jan 1857 in Spring Creek, Jackson , TN. He was a
first cousin once removed to Daniel Boone. His father was Joseph MORGAN (1750-1801) and his mother was Nancy CURTIS. Job's grandfather, Joseph Morgan who married Elizabeth Lloyd was the brother of Sarah Morgan, mother of Daniel Boone. I must mention here that there is no recorded proof found of Job's relationship to the mother of Daniel Boone. The circumstantial evidence is quite clear - just look at the names of Job's first four children: Joseph, Nancy, Lloyd, Elizabeth. And then there's the child he named Daniel Morgan Morgan...

On 10 Sep 1795 in Burke Co NC, Job married Sarah 'Sallie' HAWKINS, who was born 17 Sep 1778 in Burke Co. NC and died 13 Jan 1863 in Jackson Co. TN. Sallie's father was Augustine HAWKINS (1721-1808) and her mother was Elizabeth HENLEY (1721-1808).

Job and Sallie had thirteen children: Joseph, Nancy, Loyd, Elizabeth,
Martha, Susannah, Daniel Morgan, Washington, Austin Hawkins, William C., Darby Henley, Sally and Polly.
