Ouachita County, Arkansas - from Goodspeed's History of Arkansas
Henry P. Morgan, a leading merchant of Stephens, is a native of Georgia, born in Harris County, on March 10, 1849, and is one of the prominent business men of the county. His father, John H. Morgan, was born in Alabama in 1810, and died in Poinsett County, Arkansas, in 1810, and died in Poinsett County, Arkansas in 1857. He emigrated to the last-named county in 1848, and was one of the very earliest settlers, carrying the first slaves to that county. He located on a farm in the woods, and here passed his last days, filling many local positions of trust. He was married in Georgia to Miss Elizabeth Walker, a native of that State, and of Irish descent, her grandparents being natives of the Emerald Isle. She died in 1873. To Mr. and Mrs. Morgan were born ten children. Henry P. being the youngest in order of birth. The latter was reared in Ouachita County, Arkansas and received but a limited education. He resided with his mother until twenty two years of age, and was then married to Miss Georgia Hodnett, a native of Georgia, born in 1852. To them were born three children: Kate M. (wife of Harvey Edwards), Emmett and Marcus. Mrs. Morgan died in 1878, and about 1880 Mr. Morgan took for his second wife Miss Josephine Hodnett, a sister of his first wife and also a native of
Georgia. Four children were born to this union: Harvey, Alva, Elma and John H. Mr. Morgan embarked in the merchandising business at
Stephens in 1883, and carries a stock of goods valued at about $4,000. He also buys cotton in connection with his general trade. He is the owner of 1,000 acres of land and also several town lots with buildings which he rents. Mr. Morgan is a member of the K. of P. lodge at Stephens, and is also a K. of H. He is a Democrat in politics, and his first presidential vote was for Seymour. He and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, of which his first wife was also a member.
