                                    Stephen Morgan
                                          4 Mar 1776 - 14 Dec 1859


Stephen Morgan was an influential pioneer preacher and pastor in western NC. He was
among those who established the French Broad Association of Baptist Churches in the
early 1800's. He seems to have been the first Morgan to settle at what is now known as  
Morgan Hill in northern Buncombe County.

See an interesting biographical note by his younger contemporary,
John Ammons.
