Thomas James Morgan

Thomas James Morgan was born in Mile End in Jul 1876 the eldest son of Thomas Morgan and Margaret Sarah Chiswick. In about 1895 he emigrated to the United States and joined the family of his Aunt, Mary Jane Kerslake in Iowa. He spent the rest of his life as a labourer and farmer successively in Mount Vernon, Clinton and Low Moor, all in the state of Iowa. In 1911 he was back in England visiting his father and mother being caught by the 1911 UK census.

It is not clear that he visited the UK after that although we have some limited correspondence from ‘Uncle Tom’ with his family up until the 1950’s. He married Mary Ann Whitlatch in 1902 and had two daughters – Grace and Willa.

Uncle Tom appears to have died in the early 1960’s
