It's so frustrating when the links expire and you can't readily locate the new one. It is generally easier, but I wasn't able to locate a new one, so I'm not certain about what it originally contained.
I did however, locate the following, which may be all or part of the original text.
This is not my family line so I have nothing further. I hope this helps.

"Michael Morgan, son of William and Mary (Zeigler) Morgan, deceased, was born in Indiana county, Pa., Oct. 25, 1839. The lady whom he chose for a helpmate through life was Eliza Kephart, and they were married Feb. 23, 1865, in Blair County, Pa. She was born there March 10, 1839, of parents, John and Eliza (Beard) Kephart, deceased. Their hearthstone has been graced with six children: Grant E., John F., Della, William, Daniel S. and Junetta K. Comrade Morgan enlisted when 23 years old as a private in Co. I, 137th Pa. Vol. Inf., 1st Brig., 2d Div., 1st A. C., and was a faithful and worthy veteran. His list of active hostilities is South Mt., Antietam, Wilderness and Burnside's Stick-in-the-Mud, being fortunate to escape without a wound. He was honorably discharged May 1863, at Harrisburg, Pa. His wife passed from the shores of time Feb. 23, 1897. His brother John was killed while serving under the old flag. His wife's brother, Christ, also fell in battle, as did another brother, Samuel.
