Ruth Branham Morgan and Curtis Willie Morgan
Bookman Road, Elgin, South Carolina
This site is dedicated to my Granny and Papa Morgan (Ruth Branham Morgan and Curtis Willie Morgan), who made their home and raised their family in Kershaw County. The small town of Elgin, will forever remain in my heart as it is where my roots were planted. It is believed that the Morgan ancestors may have settled in Kershaw County as early as 1880’s.
If you would like to contribute your family’s history please feel free to contact me and I will happily add the information to the site.
