Biography of Henry W. Morgan
Broome County, NY Biographies





HENRY WALTER MORGAN - One of the substantial citizens of Johnson City, New York, whose active and busy career covers a long span of years, Henry Walter Morgan is now enjoying well deserved rest from his active duties. He has been retired for some time and while not attending to any daily duties, he has never ceased to be interested in the affairs of the day and is considered among the public spirited citizens of his community. Mr. Morgan was born June 15, 1866, in Monmouth, England, son of Thomas and Joan (Jenkins) Morgan. As a small boy, he attended the schools of that country and in later years, when his parents brought him to America, he completed his formal education in the public schools. Mr. Morgan's father was a blacksmith by occupation, and after coming to America, he settled in Pennsylvania, and, until his death, continued to follow his trade. At an early age Mr. Morgan entered the newspaper business, and for many years has written articles for magazines, periodicals, and newspapers. In 1908 he retired from the newspaper world and turned his attention to inventing. Recently a garden cultivator was invented by Mr. Morgan and two patents have been granted by the Patent Office of Washington, D. C. He is now reaping the reward of this thriftiness and industry surrounded by the evidence of his labor. Mr. Morgan is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and is an attendant of the Episcopal church.

Mr. Morgan married, at Scranton, Pennsylvania, Winnie R. Roberts, daughter of John and Ann (Davis) Roberts.
