Buncombe County, NC

In John Ammons's book, Outlines of History of French Broad Association
and Mars Hill College
(Mars Hill College Press, 1908, 2001), he says:

"S. J. Morgan was ordained by Morgan Hill Church while it was a member of
French Broad. He is a grandson of Stephen Morgan, Sr., and largely
partakes of the nature of his grandfather. For a number of years he labored
as pastor and as an evangelist, and wherever he went he won golden
opinions for himself. He succeeded well in the pastoral work, serving Little
Ivy, Bull Creek, Forks of Ivy, North Fork of Ivy, Morgan Hill, and perhaps
some others; but that for which he seemed best suited was revival work, in
this he was eminently successful, and his labors were much in demand.
Morgan is a strong preacher and sound to the core; he now belongs to the
Buncombe County Association."

John Ammons (1908), pp. 75-76.

Stanley Jones Morgan served in the Civil War. He enlisted in
Company A,
NC 60th Infantry Regiment, on 7 May 1862.
