V. MORGAN whose father, T. M. Morgan has been one of the prominent pioneers
of Adams county, as well as a leading citizen of today, is specifically
mentioned in another portion of this work. His mother is Rachel (Barnes)
Morgan. Our subject was born in Bethel, Oregon, in November, 1881,
and was with his parents in their various travels in evangelistic work
through the different portions of the northwest. His education was
received at Moscow and in Adams county, the same being obtained from the
public schools. At the age of nineteen, he began labors in life for
himself and at once secured possession of one hundred and sixty acres of
land through purchase. He added as much more by homestead and now
has the entire estate all under cultivation, well fenced and provided with
plenty of good water besides other improvements. Mr. Morgan has thrown
an energy and thrift into his labors which stamp him as one of the progressive
and successful young men in Adams county and presaging the future by the
past, we may safely say that at no distant time, he will be one of the
wealthy men of this section.
In political matters,
like his father, he is an enthusiastic Prohibitionist. Fraternally,
he is a member of the W. W. and in church relations follows in the steps
of his father, being a member of the Christian church.
