From “Virginia and Virginians, 1606-1888,” published by H.H. Hardesty, we find this entry for George W. Morgan, who resided at Logan, West Virginia:

Holds the office of justice of the peace at Logan C.H., and is a most efficient and honorable officer. He owns a beautiful residence in this town, where he resides with his interesting family. Besides his official business, he is a carpenter and builder by trade. The Morgans have lived in Logan county many years, and have always ranked among the best and most influential citizens. Isaac E. Morgan, father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Wyoming county, W.Va., April 8, 1811. He held several offices in that county; was representative in the House of Delegates from 1853 to 1854. He married, Oct. 24, 1837, Dollie C. Stone, who was born in that county April 3, 1815; the marriage took place in that county. They were the parents of the subject of this sketch. The father died in Logan county Oct. 1, 1879; the mother Jan. 19, 1876. Their son, George W. Morgan, was born in Logan county, W.Va., Sept. 2, 1855; was married there March 8, 1878, to Miss Polly Ann Chapman, who was born in the same county Feb. 2, 1849. Their marriage has been blessed with one daughter, Dollie Maud, born in Logan county, W.Va., Nov. 28, 1878; is now residing with her parents. Isaac E. Morgan, father of George W., was at the time of his death, Oct. 1, 1879, honorably filling the position of president of the county court, and had held many other offices; no citizen of this county has ever been more highly esteemed, nor has the death of one been more deeply regretted. The post office address of George W. Morgan is Logan Court House, West Virginia.
