Grandpa ran away when he was about 13 and joined the circus. He met and made lifelong friends with the Will Rogers. They remained in contact until Will Rogers death in the late 30's. He would come out to San Bernardino and meet Grandpa for a game of pool. (as told to me by my father Jack Morgan who met both Will Rogers SR. and his son.

Hi Thea! What a fascinating story! Are you aware of the Cherokee project at If you have Cherokee ancestors or family members, please add their profiles to the project!

Also, If you have ancestors on one of "the roll" please contact me so I can verify it and add them to the correct roll

My dad insisted that we have Indian heritage in there somewhere. I would be interested in any stories that you have Thea.

It would be neat to have something more substantial like articles or pictures too.
