Building a Morgan Family picture archive and a history of Thomas Morgan and his families with his wives Ann Watkins and Nancy
Pictured above is Leon Pitman. Leon is a family history researcher whose work has contributed excellence and professionalism
to our Morganclan.com website. Leon is a descendent of Thomas Morgan via his son Joseph Charles Morgan. Leon has written the
definitive life history of Thomas Morgan and his families which can be seen on this website and also is available in PDF format
for those who would like a copy. There are also many other Morgan and Radford family life histories on this website that were
researched and written by Leon.
Many people contribute to this Morgan Family website and we appreciate them all. Their contributions are all valuable and
this family website could not exist in it's present form without them. Bringing descendents of the many Thomas Morgan families
together to build a comprehensive family history on the World Wide Web has been a most interesting and rewarding experience.
This website and graphics contained in it were constructed on a little herd of MacIntosh graphics computers. I have always
felt that sheep are picked on so I defend them since they are not very good at defending themselves. Thus it came about that
I adopted the MacSheep logo.

Sheepy and his cousins have the run of the place here. They keep us from taking our work too seriously.
We use sheep as symbols and icons because in Biblical times sheep were symbols of the Savior's love for people. We see sheep
as symbols of our love for our ancestors. There are beautiful old pictures of Jesus lovingly tending to his flocks. We like
to believe we lovingly tend to the memories of our ancestors, so they won't be forgotten and so we can learn from their lives.

Mary Morgan, mother of MacSheep, collected family pictures and memorabilia over much of her life. She used to take out the
big box of pictures and explain who the people were. After she died in 1999 MacSheep, realizing that the picture collection
was very important, began to scan them into computers and retouch them. This was the beginning of a major project to build
an archive of old Morgan Family pictures, which led to the building of this Morgan Family Website.
This Morgan Family website is dedicated to Thomas Morgan. It will focus on Thomas Morgan, his wives and children, and on
William Morgan, son of Thomas Morgan and Ann Watkins. The goal is to present a definitive, well researched and documented
life history of Thomas Morgan. And to fill it out with pictures and life sketches for all the children of Thomas Morgan and
Ann Watkins, all the children of Thomas Morgan and Nancy Jane Radford, and all the children of William Morgan and Lovina Ross
Morgan. Others who were closely associated with Thomas Morgan will be included, such as his wives with whom he did not have
children, Frank Ryset who was Nancy Jane Radford's son by her first marriage and literally became part of Thomas's family,
John Whitlock Radford whose children married into the Morgan family, and others who played a part in the life of Thomas Morgan
and his families. It will gradually expand as pictures and life sketches of these families are located.
