Stories about Samuel Morgan

Biographical Sketch

    Samuel Morgan was born in the Bahamas in 1831.

    He was mustered into service as a “Seaman” November 27th, 1861 with Captain Henry Mulrenan’s Florida Volunteer Coast Guards.

    He remained in this unit until mustered into Confederate service on April 25th, 1862 when he was enlisted as a 1st Corporal in Captain Smith’s Company (Key West Avengers), 7th Regiment Florida Infantry by Major R. B. Thomas at Tampa, Florida  for a period of 3 years or the war.

    He is reported present; on active duty; $50 bounty due for service since March 5th, 1862.  He is reported as present on all company rolls until an undated roll for the period April 30th, 1862 to November 14th, 1862.  This roll documents his transfer to the C.S. Navy on August 8th, 1862, and assignment to the CSS Chattahoochee as a Sailmaker. The vessel sank as a result of a boiler explosion on May 27th, 1863. He emerged unscathed, and was sent to Savannah, Georgia for assignment as a Sailmaker’s Mater in the recently commissioned “CSS Savannah”.

    There is no further record of service after this date.  (Private Jules Chabert, Private Charles Miller, and Private John D. Sands would also be transferred and assigned to the “CSS Savannah”) .

    He survived the war and died at Key West, Monroe County, Florida on June 16th, 1904.
