Curtis Morgan and Caroline Elizabeth (Elise) Antritter became acquainted and were married in the Worthington Congregational Church on February 16, 1893 by Rev. Mc.Cuen. Rev. McCuen was also the editor of the Worthington Advance and suggested they subscribe to it. They continued an unbroken subscription to that paper, later changed to the Worthington Daily Globe for 67 years of marriage.

Curtis and Elise moved into their home just south of the adjoining Antritter farm located northeast of Round Lake. In 1903, the Morgans decided to build on the quarter section they had purchased years before. The buildings were erected facing east on the Nobles-Jackson County line, overlooking Round Lake, directly across from the main Sather house today. Charles Antritter did the carpentry work. The family lived in the grainery until the house was ready for occupancy in September of 1904. The Morgans lived on the farm until 1942 when they moved their new home into Round Lake and resided there. In 1954, after a fire in their home, they moved into a newly completed home belonging to their daughter, Florence. They continued to live with Florence the remainder of their life.

Elise was very active in the Presbyterian Church. She sang in the choir and for many funerals throughout her active church life. She also taught Sunday school classes for many years and was always an active member of the Ladies Aid of which she was a charter member in 1949.

Curtis died on Saturday, February 27, 1960 at the age of 98. Elise died on Friday, September 21, 1962 at the age of 86. Both Curtis and Elise are buried at the Round Lake Cemetery.

The Morgans were some of the earliest members of the Presbyterian church established in 1895. George Morgan was the second Elder to be elected.
