Morgan served in the 9th Kansas Cavalry during the Civil War and his widow is recorded as drawing a pension on his service.
He died between Feb 1877 and Sep 1878. He and his family were listed in the 1875 Kansas State Census taken on 1 March of that year and wrote a letter to an official of the Greenwood County KS court on the 5th of Feb 1877 regarding the distribution of the legatees to the heirs of A. H. Reeves which had been delayed by the administrator for over fifteen years. Morgan was deceased before Sep of 1878 based upon documents included in the probate case file of Albert H. Reeves' estate. Because Morgan would have been an heir to Albert's estate, his wife and children were included among the legatees in his place.
