REV. J. H. MORGAN
Rev. J. H. Morgan emigrated from Torquay, England,
early in the fifties. Later Mr. Joseph Morgan,
his brother, came to the English colony. Their father
was a Methodist preacher, and a very prominent
man in Torquay. I visited that city in 1904,
and was struck with the beauty of the place, and it
is said by many people to be the garden spot of England.
Rev. J. H. Morgan was also a Methodist minister.
He was broad in his views, rather too broad
for the faith, order and discipline as taught in the
Methodist Conference in this country. He did not
believe in sectarianism, and felt like taking every
man by the hand and calling him brother, and he
thought the feeling and division between the different
churches was too marked, and he believed that
they should be united and all should work to that
end, as all were striving to go to the same place.
J. H. Morgan was a Bible student and studied
the Bible the greatest part of his life, and some time
before his death he wrote a number of manuscripts
on the Bible, and was expecting to put it in book
form and have it published. He was a very pious
and devoted Christian and a deep thinker. The
widow, Mrs. J. H. Morgan, has five of his manuscripts
that she expects to have published in book
The first written is on the Fall of Man.
The second is on the Atonement.
The third is on Salvation.
The fourth is on the Judgment.
The fifth is on Damnation.
Here’s what’s next.
