Publication Date



This collection is composed of genealogical materials such as family group charts, pedigree charts, family histories, articles and family bible records for the Morgan and Skipper family, a copy book for practicing handwriting and copying verse by Mary Alice Skipper, account books and receipts for John Morgan (which John Morgan is unknown), promissory notes and receipts

Based on the dates, most of the business and financial materials appear to be concerned with John Morgan’s business ventures, first as a store keeper in Shenandoah County, Virginia, and later as a farmer in Putnam County, Virginia, now West Virginia. It is good to note that there are three men named John Morgan, and distinctions are difficult.


Special collections material is obtained from many sources and is intended primarily for research and educational purposes.

It is up to the researcher to verify that they have permission to use these materials for publication or other activities.
