George W. Morgan is the only resident photographer in Vernon county, and as his artistic ability is excellent, his patronage is large and remunerative. Mr. Morgan was born at Elk Grove, Grant Co., Wis., in 1845. His father, Samuel Morgan, was an early settler of that county, and a wagon maker by trade. He removed to Allamakee Co., Iowa, in 1850, where he now resides. George W. commenced learning the art of photography in 1866, with Dr. Hall, of Lansing, Iowa. Dr. Hall subsequently died, and Mr. Morgan took charge of his business and continued it with fair success for about six years. In June, 1872, he located in Viroqua. Mr. Morgan married Hattie L. Murry, a native of Ohio.
