Kirksey/Morgan family connections
Posted by: Preston E. Newman Date: November 02, 1999 at 07:49:56

I'm seeking to connect a Morgan family to the Kirksey family in early GA records, specifically Isaac Kirksey who was living in Effingham Co. GA in 1802, along with a William Morgan; was included by name in the 1805 GA land lottery; drew land in Baldwin Co. GA in the 1807 GA land lottery; was living in Pulaski Co. GA in 1820, along with a Stephen Morgan; the orphans of Isaac Kirksey drew land in the 1821 GA land lottery, as did a widow Lovy Kirksey. This would indicate this Isaac Kirksey died by 1821. Other records reveal that he was sheriff of Laurens Co. GA at one time. In 1840 and in 1850 an Isaiah Kirksey was living in Dekalb Co. GA - in 1840 nearby James Morgan, and in 1850 Isaiah Kirksey was living in the household with James Morgan and his wife Sarah Morgan, last name not known.

I seek the parents of James Morgan, who is my wife's ancestor. The evidence appears sufficient to post this inquiry because of the proximity in time and place of the cited Kirksey families and the Morgan families. Perhaps Sarah Morgan (bc 1795) was a Kirksey.

Any help would be appreciated. I find there have been several Isaac Kirksey postings on GenForum in the past, without any Morgan connection imparted.
