      Flowery biographies of Peter and son Harry were printed in "History of Fresno County California" by Paul E. Vendor, published by the Historic Record Company, L.A. CA 1919. Family members said they would hardly have recongnized them from the glowing descriptions.

      Vera Morgan Pack, worte the following of the Morgan family:"My grandfather, Peter Milton Morgan, aged 19 during his first year in the Union Army, and my grandmother, Catherine Mathis (Kate), were from Ohio. They were married after peace was declared. With their small daughter Iza, and a number of relatives, including several of the Mathis family and Aunt Murilla (Marilla) Morgan Ragan with her husband John, an Army buddy of my grandfather's, they followed the railroad to Kansas.

      "My grandmother was not quite ready for my father's birth, so they found an old doctor who gae her something which delayed his arrival by a month, until they had a sod house ready in Sedgwick, Reno County, (should be Harvey C.) Kansas. On Feb 13th, 1871, Harry Clarence Morgan, weighed 15lbs, arrived ...Exactly two years to the day later, a second son was born. He had no real name until he chose one for himself -Claude Duval (Vera later states that he became a railroad mechanic.)"

      "Grandpa Morgan was a railroad car porter for years. Grandmother Kate died when my father was 19. Grandfather remarried a widow, Mary Sager,who had a lovely daughter Blanche, about Iza's age....Grandpa and Aunt Mary were together until her death about 20 or 25 years later. They lived in Great Bend, Kansas."

      "Grandpa Morgan had come to Fresno and had persuaded my folks to come out and go on a ranch he had found ner Clovis in the Garfield Colony...We arrived on a foggy February day...I went to Johnston's with Blanche."

      "He decided he was not going to be a burden on Mother, so he finally went to the Soldier's Home where he developed diabetic gangrene and a foot was amputated. He died there and was buried in Fresno."
