Uran: As a young married man, he worked on the Tyra Glen plantation near Winston-Salem, NC., owned by the richest man in Yadkin Co. (land and 700 slaves). Hardin was the overseer of 50 slaves, a group who worked in the tobacco fields. Hardin and his wife lived in Rockingham Co., Stokes Co., and Yadkin Co., NC. He was in the census of 1850, age 34, in Beaver Island District, Stokes Co., NC, with family of 4 children (and a 25 year old Margaret ?Reno) and in Booneville, Yadkin Co, NC in Census of 1860, age 43, with family of 8. He was a secretary and treasurer of the Christian Church in Boonville, NC, for many years. He raised tobacco and cotton on a 240 acre plantation he owned 1 mile east and 1/2 a mile north of Boonville, Yadkin Co., NC. He owned a trio of slaves, a family (Ran, Fan, and Snip). He did not believe in slavery and paid them wages. He did not favor the southern rebellion, supporting the union cause. He was impressed into service by being dragged from home by the Home Guard when he was 47 years old. Washington D. C. War records read: "Hardin Morgan aged 47 years, born in Stokes Co., N. Carolina and by occupation a farmer, a private and corporal, Company N, 5th Regiment North Carolina Senior Reserves, Confederate States Army, enlisted 30 June 1864 (also shown as 7 July) at Yadkinville. The company muster roll for January and February 1865, last on file, shows him present. His name last appears on a Register of Confederate States Military Prison Hospital, formerly General Hospital, No. 9, Salisbury, North Carolina. dated 14 March 1865." His regiment was quartered aground Salisbury prision, a prison hospital at Salisbury, Rowan Co., NC, which was similar to the notorious prison camp at Andersonville. On the occasion of the Union prisoners breaking out, his company was ordered to help in their round-up. He refused to hunt them down. According to his grandson James Hamilton Morgan, he told his commander that he had nothing against any of the Union men, but if any one of them wanted to pick a fight just to send them over and he would try to accomodate him. He was court-martialed and sentenced to be shot. On the intercession of his wife, and two nephews (lieutenants in the Confederate Army), and the fact that Lee had surrendered, he was pardoned. (He was later recognized by the G.A.R. as a Union veteran in Iowa). On his return to his plantation, he was viewd as a northern sympathizer and ostrasized. He decided to sell his plantation and follow two older daughters to Marshall Co., IA. He sold his 240 acre plantation with its frame house (built by himself and his sons), a tobacco factory, drying house and all their belongings for $500 cash to three "free negroes" (3 brothers (John Gilmer, Robert and George Jarvis) who had bought their own freedom before the war; previously owned by Col. John and Betsy Jayne Jarvis; they are buried in Booneville). It was impossible to sell to any white families , since few had any cash after the war. He came in a covered wagon to Iowa from Booneville (now Boonville), North Carolina to New Providence, Iowa (see his diary in James Hamilton Morgan biography). He left North Carolina on Oct 17, 1869; arrived Nov 20, 1869. He was better educated than many of his day. On the trek to Iowa with 4 families, Hardin was captain and head spokesman of the company. There journey took them from Booneville, to Greenborough, NC, by wagon; to Richmond and West Point, VA, by train; then with Capt. Fremont by boat to Baltimore, MD; by train to Chicago, IL, and State Center, IA, and then by wagon train to New Providence, IA. All but two of the children walked the 18 miles to New Providence. 1870 census of Providence Township, Hardin Co, IA lists Hardin, age 52, a carpenter, with Elizabeth and 7 children. He moved his family to Liscomb, Iowa, on Nov. 7, 1870, after building a house there. All the older children worked as hired hands. He then went to Marshalltown, IA, where he helped to build the brick round house depot for the Iowa Central railroad in 1872. He was a carpenter, stone mason, and shoe cobbler there. He and Elizabeth playeded the violin. Daughter Lou stated that he played the violin everynight for the children and then read them the bible. They played for dances in NC until they joined the Baptist Church, when they dropped both the fiddle and dancing. He did not play again until much latter. He was a Democrat in politics. He is listed in 1880 census at Liscomb, age 63 with Elizabeth and Andrew, as a houses from his sister Nancy). He convalesced from a stroke at his daughter Em's home. His name is on a plaque in the Historical Building in River View Park in Marshalltown Iowa (as is Elizabeth Morgan, and George and Clarinda Houghton). Five of their children and 16 of their grandchildren were teachers. Both played the violin.
Maxwell Morgan (1953 Yadkinville NC genealogy ad): Lived in Stokes Co., near Madison, then moved to Boonville 1825 onto a plantation one mile east 1/2 mile north, where tobacco was grown and made and sold as chewing tobacco, also fruit drying and tanning operations were carried on near the spring and small stream. Peresen owner of farm is C. Hilton Jones. Hardin's father was called Perry, probably a nickname, who lived with them until Hardin went ot Iowa in 1866. Perry's son Solomon was born 1814, died 1894.
V.I. Uran: Known as Hardy, Hardin, Harden, Hardinsen; one deed is signed Henderson Morgan.

“The Spring” located on Hardin & Elizabeth White Morgan’s plantation at Booneville, Yadkin Co., North Carolina. It was a 240 acre plantation. The spring starts to bubble from the ground through the ledges of flat stone under the shady tree about 100 to 125 feet from where their home stood.

In Picture No. 1 Max Morgan is standing near the tree and holds a glass of water from the stream. The flowers he is pointing to are some Grandma Morgan planted in 1865.

In picture No. 2 is the spring. It is a good size of stream and flows about 50 feet east to where it joins a larger stream and trickles its way past where the tannery and the mill were located. At the very point of outlet the water is flowing north. The water is just as cool and clear on June 1, 1951 as it must have been when his father and grandfather drank from it.

In picture No. 3 a walnut tree is on the left of Mr. Spencer (with the hat on) which is thought to have been on the plantation when the morgan family lived there.

Wild roses and catnip held in Max’s hands have been growing in the same place for fiftey years and Houston Jones now owner of the place states these were in their same location when the Morgans were there as he and others have plowed them up but always they return.

Hardin Morgan, my grandfather, sold the west 40 acres to P.J. Spencer’s father, his neighbor. These photos were taken June 1, 1851 by Max Morgan. The 200 acres were sold to three free negroes for $500.00 in 1869 when they moved to New Providnece, Iowa and later to Liscomb, Iowa. The only building left of the original plantation was a kitchen which had been moved to another place and used as a grainery.


We Are All One
What is my boasted indepenence? I am dependent upon everybody and everything. I go with the crowd. I am caught in the press of men. I must move with them.

What I call my character or nature is made up of infinite particles of inherited tendencies from my ancestors -- those whose blood runs in my veins. A little seed of laziness from this grandfather and of prodigality from that. Some remote grandmother, perhaps, has stamped me with a fear of horses or a love of dogs. There may be in me a bit of outlawry from some pirate forefather, and a dash of piety from one who was a saint.

So everything in me passes on through my children. I am sewn in between ancestry and posterity. I am a drop of water in flowing river, a molecule in a mountain, a cell in a great tree.

My gestures, ways, mannerisms, so-called peculiarities, I borrowed them all.

Religion is not a personal affair so much as it is communal. You are a Jew because you were born a jew: for the same reason you are a Catholic, you are a Presbyterian, you are a Buddhist, you are a Morman. As we enter life we find these cells already made in the human beehive and crawl into them.

Original ideas? Where will you find them? All the ideas there are exist now, floating in the human sea. I, an oyster, absorb a few, and call them mine. Even the phrases of the Lord’s prayer have been traced to Talmudic sources.

How we part ourselves up into strange egotisms! We strut, gesticulate, contend, and talk of me and mine, only to go down at last in a cataract that empties into the unknown.

Let us, therefore, put away coarse egotisms and partisan passions, and learn to love humantiy, to think and feel in terms of humanity.
