Solomon Morgan (died Nov. 16, 1847)

Solomon was the son of Major Mark Morgan and his wife Sarah (Hinton) Morgan most likely born sometime in the 1740s in Orange Co., North Carolina.

Solomon married Nancy Sears who was known as Ann. One author who wrote a Morgan genealogy believes he may have been married previously to an Ester.

He became a successful farmer. In his will which was written in 1847 he mentions his wife Ann and his children, Jones, Sampson, Louisa and Mary.

After his death on November 16, 1847 he was buried on land beside Morgan Creek. His body apparently was then transfered to the Morgan and Mason Cemetery, Chapel Hill, Orange Co., North Carolina.
