MORGAN, James D.

    Cambria Freeman, 14 Nov 1902, Contributed by Patty Millich

James D. Morgan, a native of Wales, died at the almshouse on Monday, at 10:30 o'clock A. M., aged 82 years, of diseases incident to old age. Morgan immigrated to America about 50 years ago. He was a veteran of the Civil war. He enlisted as a private in Company D, 48 Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers and was promoted to sergeant for gallantry in action. He participated in a number of celebrated engagements, notably Chancellorsville, Cold Harbor, the Wilderness, Fredericksburg, etc. For some unexplained cause he failed to receive a pension from the U. S. Government. No relatives survive him in this country as far as known. His remains were interred in the solders' plot in Lloyd cemetery, a squad of Civil war veterans attended as pall bearers, after burial services were held at the chapel of the home by the Rev. J. T. Jones, pastor of the Congregational church, in this place. Morgan was admitted to the almshouse on August 17, 1889.
