Morgan's Point Cemetery

"NO PAIN, NO GRIEF, NO ANXIOUS FEAR,
CAN REACH THE PEACEFUL SLEEPER HERE"







MORGAN'S POINT CEMETERY
Morgan's Point Cemetery is located along Barbours Cut Boulevard across from Oaks St. and between the Longshoremen parking lot and the truck terminal. There is a paved road leading to the entrance and a small parking lot just for the cemetery. Gate is unlocked and cemetery is kept up real nice. There are alot of trees for shade and benches to sit on.
Compiled June 25,1985 and 2007.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Morgan's Point was settled in 1835 by Col. James Morgan calling it New Washington.
At one time James Morgan's gravesite was unknown. The headstone of his grave has been stolen three times in recent history. The third time it was not recovered.
There are some who think the stone was taken because it contains a paragraph from Morgan's will which says a 60 acre parcel of his plantation containing the cemetery could never be sold. His grave has been found and marked with a new gravestone. (GEW)
Many have speculated on the fate of Morgan's headstone but some think it is lying in 30-40 feet of water beneath the giant ships docking at Barbours Cut.
