    Signed sealed and delivered His in the presents of William Hancock Thomas Morgin Elisha Inman, Mary Hancock

    The following is from Dennis Nicklaus's posting on the internet:
    Thomas continued to purchase land (in Virginia); June 1763: 243 acres; June 1763: 396 acres; September 1764: 400 acres. In addition to farming he continues to trade as a miller. For unknown reasons, Indians did not lime mills; his first mill was burnt by Indians who turned on the mill machinery when there was no grain to be ground and friction from the mill stones rubbing together set the building on fire. A second mill was built near the site of the first mill. He (Thomas) died in 1774, it is said he was killed by an arrow while standing in the mill door.

    On May 8, 1758, thomas Morgan, along with Christian Choat and Jacob Biborn of Bedford County, virginia, wrote a letter to George Washington describing an Indian raid in Bedford County. This letter is preserved with other Washington papars in the Library of congress. Here is it's text:

    A merandom of what of what we the subscribers have seen by the indins when we come to the house we saw a indin with a kinife in his hand gun acting as tho he had a mind to kill us and went out and gage a hallow and then several more apeard and he returnd in again and took my gun and took site at my face and the rest Jumpt of their horses with their guns and knives dran in their hands and hallowing and runi8ng as fast as they could to the hous and when we told them they should not do so they with their knives opened to stab us so we maid off as fast as we could and we heard them braking open the chests as we took it to be as witness out hands.
