Notes


Obit: Madisonville Democrat, (Monroe Co. TN) Wednesday, March 31, 1937:


"Gideon Morgan Dies At Oklahoma Home---Gideon Morgan, who will be remembered by many of the older citizens of Monroe County, has passed to his reward. The following from the Daily World, of Tulsa, Okla., tells the sad news of his passing, as well as something of his pioneer life in the West:


Gid Morgan, Pioneer of State, Dies---Death, Monday, claimed another of Oklahoma's picturesque pioneers Gideon Morgan, 85-year-old Confederate veteran of the Civil War and proprietor of Morgan's Inn nine miles east of Pryor, died of a heart attack in his room at the hostelry.


Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon at Morgan's Inn. Burial will be in the cemetery at Pryor.


Genial host to thousands visiting his inn each year, Morgan had endeared himself to the hearts of Oklahomans and many from out of the state as one of the most colorful characters in Indian Territory.


For the last 20 years he had received guests at his inn, entertained them for the weekend or as long as they would stay, telling long tales of early days before Oklahoma became a state.


Morgan was a direct descendant of Oconostota (Aganasata, ground hog), a Cherokee Indian chief who lived from 1708 to 1810. By virtue of his Cherokee blood he took an active part in early day Cherokee politics and was a member of that tribe's delegation to Washington when the tribal lands were allotted. He was one-sixteenth Cherokee.


Born in the mountains of East Tennessee, Morgan went to battle in the Civil War when only ten years old, accompanying his father, Major George Washington Morgan, in the Third Tennessee Infantry.


He went to Winchester and remained with the Army until after the battle of Manassas. In September of 1862 he was sent home with an attack of the measles. His father was wounded and died that same year.


In 1871 Morgan came with his younger brothers and sisters to Gibson Station, the end of the railroad, and settled on a small farm about four miles east of Fort Smith, Ark. Three years later he married Mary Llewellyn Payne.


Morgan was active in early Oklahoma politics and among other things was permanent chairman of the convention of delegates from Indian Territory which resolved to come into the Union as the state of Oklahoma.


He was at one time a member of the Oklahoma state legislature and secured the passage of a bill which permitted the building of the bridge over the Grand River at Salina.


History and genealogy were Morgan's hobbies and he was considered an authority on Cherokee history. In his later years he spent considerable time studying Civil War history. About a month ago he finished reading the recent novel, Gone With The Wind, which deals with the Civil War period, friends said.


The aged man remembered seeing Tulsa when the site was occupied solely by a cabin of a family of Creek Indians.


Survivors include his wife and six daughters;
Mrs. W.L. Mayes of Spavinaw;
Miss Lelia Morgan,
Miss Elizabeth Morgan,
Mrs. Frank Bell, all of Morgan's Inn;
Mrs. Vail Kinsey of Terlton;
Mrs. C.A. Fleetwood, 1820 East Seventeenth Street
and a daughter-in-law, Mrs. Bertha Morgan, 120 East Third Street;
a sister, Mrs. John Sapler of Tahlequah, and a granddaughter, Mrs. Eben Hart, 1360 East
Twentieth Street.


Mr. Morgan never forgot his friends in Monroe County, and in order to keep in touch with them he had been a subscriber to The Democrat since its establishment almost 45 years ago.


The following editorial from the Tulsa World is evidence of the esteem his fellow citizens had for Mr. Morgan:


The name of Morgan has been long and honorably associated with Mayes County. In the passing of dear old Gid Morgan, northeast Oklahoma loses one of its most colorful and loved figures. Morgan's Inn on the Grand River has been the mecca of travelers from north, south, east and west. It was unique. It was hospitable. It was simple and it was distinguished. Dad Morgan reared a family that did credit to the state; they served their community. They do honor to him.


Mr. Morgan will be missed by a large circle of friends. He fought the Civil War over and over again, but he was not sectional; he drew his circle to take them in. Au revoir, old friend."
