This account of Job Morgan in the Jackson Co,Tennessee Library was written by Eliza Rett Johnson in 1957. I have copied it as it was written.

"Job Morgan and his family came to Tennessee somewhere between 1802 and 1805. He was a crippled man and was not in the war; was the son of Joseph & Nancy Curtis Morgan.  Joseph Morgan of Burk Co. NC was in the Revolutionary War & was Sheriff of NC.  Jobe as a boy guarded prisoners.  Sallie Morgan, wife of Jobe Morgan, was a daughter of Augustin Hawkins and his wife, Elizabeth, whose maiden name was Henley.  Jobe Morgan his wife & the children then born came to Jackson Co. in 1811 and settled on Spring Creek.  Joe (Joseph) Morgan entered land on Spring Creek, lived there awhile & then moved down to what is known as the Laborn Loftis Place.  Their place is now owned by Dewey West. Joe (Joseph) Morgan & wife Sallie are buried on the Bartlett Place near Early Lane Store;
graves are at the foot of a Postoak Tree." [This Joe (Joseph) I think is supposed to be Job]
