Eugene Oyler, being adopted into this famiy, I would like to request
that you add the email address of my cousin who is a direct

Aaron Iredell Morgan was born Oct 1820 in Whitley Co. Kentucky the
son of William Morgan and Elizabeth Bobbitt. Iredell's family
subsequently moved to Shelby Co. Illinois where he married Lucretia
Webb 9 June 1843 Shelby Co Illinois, dtr of John Webb and Elizabeth
Young of Nashville, Davidson Co Tennessee and who migrated to Shelby
Co Illinois where they both died. Lucretia was born abt 1824
Davidson Co Tennesee. It is not certain when she died or where.
Iredell remained in Shelby Co Illinois until 1855 when he left and
arrived in Parker Co Texas in 1856.
On 22 Jan 1861 he purchased 160 acres in Parker Co. Texas.
He was a blacksmith, as was his father, and many of his male
descendants also were blacksmiths. The first seven of his 10
children were born in Shelby Co Illinois. The last three being born
in Parker Co Texas.
I'm am not certain when Lucretia died but sometime between 1866 and
1870 after the birth of her last child Martha Ann Morgan.
By 1870 Iredell had lost his wife and left Parker Co Texas and went
to the area of Southwest City, McDonald Co. Missouri. He remarried a
second time 27 July 1871 McDonald Co. Missouri to Elizabeth "Lizzy"
Boosby, whom I believe was a widow with several children. I also
think her last name is misspelled and that it may have been BUSBY.
He remained in McDonald Co Missouri for a few years after his 2nd
marriage, when he once again returned to Texas. With his 2nd wife he
had one son. This time he settled in Jack County for a number of
years and by 1900 had moved in with his youngest daughter Martha Ann
Morgan and her husband Jefferson D. Acord in Wise Co. Texas
He died 13 May 1906 probably in Wise Co. Texas.
His children with Lucretia Webb were:
1) George Martin Morgan b 22 Dec 1843 Shelby Co Illinois married lst
Mary Unetia Brooks 2nd) Rebecca Ann Smith. He died 26 April 1898
Missouri. George was a blacksmith.

Edward Oyler 3 Nov 1870 McDonald Co. Missouri. They had a son
Charles Samuel Oyler b 5 April 1881 Southwest City, McDonald Co
Missouri who married Ruby Ethel Coltharp 1 Oct 1906 Independence,
Montgomery Co. Kansas. Charles and Ruby adopted my father Charles
Eugene Oyler a/k/a Clarence Ugene Whitaker in 1920. Anna Elizabeth
Morgan Oyler died as a result of her dress catching on fire while
she was burning off the family garden spot. She died 1904 and is
buried in the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery, Miami, Ottawa Co.
