Jefferson Davis Morgan
Jefferson Davis Morgan, born circa 1862, was a member of one of the original settling families of the area, and operated a general merchandise store with a series of partners in the 1893-vintage two-story brick structure on the northwest corner of Elm Street and Clemson Street in the small community of Calhoun, South Carolina. The business, last operated as Boggs Store, finally closed in 1957.
J. D. Morgan's parents were Robert F. Morgan and Melissa Cannon Morgan. The family home was on Shiloh Road in Seneca. His wife was Netty Morgan. In addition to the Calhoun store, which Morgan let his partners manage, he also ran share cropping operations with black renters in the area. The J. D. Morgan name was painted on the south wall of the Calhoun building until it was gutted by fire on November 1, 1997.
