    • Manly S. Morgan is one of the old settlers of Elgin Township. His grandfather, Joshua Morgan, of Massachusetts, removed from that State to New York in its early settlement, and took up a large tract of land from the Indians. He died there in 1846. His son, Joshua P. Morgan, the father of Manly S., married Keziah Shaw, daughter of William Shaw. They resided in Buffalo about twenty years, engaged part of the time in merchandising. In 1844 he removed with his family to and settled in Elgin township, Kane Co., Ill., where he purchased several tracts of land and for some time carried on agriculture; he sold his farms and engaged in the grocery trade, now retired from the arduous duties of life, but hale and hearty, his erect and agile movement of person giving token of many years yet of the enjoyment of the fruits of a well-spent life.

      Manly S. Morgan was born in Buffalo, NY, in 1830, and was fourteen years of age when his parents came to Illinois. After his arrival he engaged in the tinner's trade, at which he worked four years.
