Morgan Family Pioneer Heritage
Wagon Camping

Our ancestors often lived out of wagons and tents when they traveled and when they worked on various jobs


This wagon/tent camp picture, found in a Morgan/Radford picture collection, was a typical dwelling for our ancestors as they traveled. When they were employed building roads, such as the Conant Dugway, they lived in tent camps. Alvin Morgan, son of William Morgan and grandson of Thomas Morgan, describes in his life history living in a covered hayrack (wagon) with a tarp over it while working on a roadbuilding project in Filer, Idaho. This mode of living was common through the first three generations of Morgan and Radford families in America.
