My search for information about my great grandfather John Hamilton Morgan began here five springtime’s ago. I visited the Salt Lake Cemetery and snapped pictures of the Morgan family markers and sent them to Amy at The Ancestor Files.
The more I learned about him the more I wanted to learn about him.
Descendants donated his journals, papers, and some pictures to the Marriott Library, Special Collections, University of Utah. I have frequented the collection during the last five years. Anxious to verify an item last week I attempted to pull up the list of their materials and learned that the John Morgan collection is now in a digital format. It is available on-line through the MWDL Mountain West Digital Library and anyone can visit it here.
The copy of this remembrance card I had made from the collection was so poor I could not read it. I was happy to see it revealed on the face page of the collection and I can now read what is written.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given;
And thou the body moulders here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.
