    VI. Morgan Morgan, 3-27-1718, "This meeting being informed that Morgan Morgan, one in community with us hath an Intention of Marrying with one that is not, Contrary to Discipline. This Meeting Desires that his parents and Frds. use all Endeavors possible by Tender Councel and Advice to Diswade him from it." [to no avail as he marries Dorothy Hughes]. [See also Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks by Clarence V. Roberts and Warren S. Ely (1925) as chapter XXXIV (pps 381-388) is a descendancy of Morgan Morgan and Dorothy Hughes, which reads in part, "He settled in what later became Whitpain Township, then known as the 'Adjacents of Gwynedd," where he died... His will, dated 1 mo. 3, 1727-28, mentions his wife Dorothy, son Edward and James [sic, should read Jesse - JQ], and brothers Joseph, William and John." Clarence Roberts later wrote a family genealogy (1940) which corrects some errors he made in Early Friends Families of Upper Bucks. This genealogy is available at the library of the Historical Society of Montgomery County on the far wall under Roberts.]
