Need help finding descendant to give family heirloom to!
John Nettles
- Fermer
Hello- hoping someone can help! I used to dabble in trading silver, and a while back I came across a silver christening cup with the name "Casey Bruce Morgan" on it with the date "Octo 29, 1870". From my amateur research, it appears he was a Navy captain who was quite distinguished. Any google search returns multiple hits for that name, and a plethora of information about his life. I would like to give the cup to a descendant, because it would surely be worth more to them, and it's just collecting dust here. (It's probably only worth about 80 bucks in silver- would rather die than melt it down.) Unfortunately, while I can find out a great deal about him online, I don't have the skills needed to find out if he has living descendants. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

         Smile I hope you find this Morgan descendant. I commend you for your ethics. People mean more to you than $$ more folks should have such a quality! Bravo for you and good luck. PDW

According to the web "Casey Morgan graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Class of 1888. He retired as a U.S. Navy Rear Admiral. He died 17 August 1933 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery."

 On the 1930 census he's listed as "single."

Have you contacted the Naval Academy for information?
