      Roger Morgan, a descendant of John Morgan, Sr. [d. 1799/1800 Moore County, NC] tested 67 markers and was a positive match to several Morgan males around the country including Brett Porter Morgan. Roger and Brett both descend from John Morgan's son James Pleasant Morgan [1780/1784-1848]. Roger continues through son George Troy Morgan > Joseph Pleasants Morgan > Elder Van Morgan [Roger's grandfather]. Brett descends from James Pleasant Morgan via son James Goodwin Morgan > John G. Morgan. James Goodwin Morgan migrated from Moore County, NC to Kansas. John Morgan, Sr. is believed to have been born in Orange County, NC and moved to Moore County, NC by 1759. He may have been the son of Mark Morgan of Orange County, NC.
