Robert Morgan was born 24 August 1883 at Neeley, Idaho. He married Delora Ross, daughter of Melvin and Mary Ellen Haddon Ross.
They had three children, Robert William Morgan (b. 1911) in Poplar, Idaho, Ross Dennis Morgan, (b. 28 June 1916), and Melvin
Morgan (b, 30 Jan 1919), all of whom died young. He divorced Delora Ross sometime after 1920 and later married Edith Workman.
There are no living descendants today from either marriage. Robert Morgan worked in the Poplar area (we have pictures of him
building canals with horses and Buck scrapers) and perhaps farmed there as well. There are oral histories suggesting that
a son of Edward Morgan built a cabin in Blacks Canyon near the Snake River upstream from Poplar, Idaho and lived a hermit
like existence there for a time. This could possibly have been Robert Morgan. He died 23 Sept 1939 at the age of 56. His older
brother, Edward Thomas Morgan, born 1 Dec 1869, outlived him and died 12 July 1952. Delora Ross Morgan married again to Norval
Grant. And then later to William Warden Swain.
