He was born in 1734 (279 years ago) and married his wife Rebecca in 1756. His kids, in order, were named: 1.James, 2.Israel, 3.Susanna, 4.Jemima, 5.Levina, 6.Rebecca, 7.Daniel Morgan, 8.Jesse Bryan, 9.William, 10.Nathan.

He died in 1820, in Missouri, at the age of 86 (193 years have passed since his death). Missouri named a County after him. He had moved to Missouri because the state of Kentucky allowed his land to be taken from him by others who knew the legal system better. Interestingly, many years after his death, the State of Kentucky began to appreciate him more--so much so, that they went to Missouri and had he and his wife "dug-up" and re-buried in Kentucky. A parade was held, all the way from Louisville to his Kentucky grave site, in his honor. Too bad he wasn't alive to see or know it.

Well, don't think he'd like the modern world and all the nonsense going on today.

Good to know but Dale's right, he wouldn't like the modern world.
