Founded February 19, 1889
Took its name from Fort Morgan. The original fort was in existence from 1865-1868. It was established as a protection post against the Indians and was originally called "Junction" or "Camp Wardell". In 1866 the post became known as Fort Morgan in memory of Colonel Christopher A. Morgan, who died earlier that year.

Previous Updates

We're looking to add the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between - in short, the data you used to build your family tree (rather than the tree itself since we don't have the space or manpower to accept gedcoms and trees)
