Daniel Morgan

The person who links us to Daniel Morgan and other more and less known individuals/names is our Absalom Bobo's wife Mary Gant (nee Boone) whom I wrote about in this post.

Daniel Morgan was related to the Boone family.
If you are not sure who Daniel Morgan was, I remind only that he was a politician of Virginia and general whose leadership led to a vital victory during American Revolutionary War.

How does Mary Boone connect us to Mr. Daniel Morgan? I partially explained it (regarding Daniel Boone) in the post linked above. Here is the direct line which goes through 7 generations:

Mary Gant (Boone)
her father Hiram Boone (b. 1765, Culpepper County, Virginia - d. 13 March 1826, Woodford, Kentucky) ➦
his father Hezekiah Boone ( 22 May 1735, Exeter, Berks, PA - 20 Dec. 1823, Woodford, Kentucky) ➦
his father George Boone (13 July 1690, Bradninch, Devonshire, England - 20 Nov. 1753, Exeter Township, Berks County, Pennsylvania) ➦
his brother Squire Maugridge Boone, Sr. (25 Nov. 1696, Bradninch, Devonshire, England - 2 Jan. 1765, Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina, Colonial America) ➦
his wife Sarah Boone / nee Morgan ( b. 23 Sept. 1700 in Towamencin Township, Montgomery, Pennsylvania, Colonial America - d. 1 Jan. 1777,  Mocksville, Davie, North Carolina)
her brother Joseph James Morgan, Sr. (b. 1702, Montgomery, PA - d. 1782, Frederick, Virginia) 
his son Daniel Morgan (b. 6 July 1736, Battletown, Hunterdon, New Jersey - d. 6 July 1802, Winchester, Frederick, Virginia).
