Rev. Morgan Morgans (Jan. 18, 1851 --- Died: Sep. 15, 1930): Born in Jennings Co., Indiana, Rev. Morgans became a renowned evangelist throughout Missouri, Indian Territory, and Texas. He was said to have preached in all 48 states and the Holy Land. "Morg" married Emma Pine Adams on July 3, 1870, in Neosho, Newton County, Mo. They had five children together. He died in Burnet, Texas, and his passing was the main headline on page one of the Sept. 18, 1930 Burnet Bulletin: "Burnet’s Most Useful Citizen Called By Death." He was a remarkable man, and a true "Minister of the Gospel of Christ," which is inscribed on his tombstone. He was my great grand uncle..
