Morgan, Joseph (1671-c. 1745)

Clergyman and writer.

Minister in Presbyterian and Congregational churches in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Undisciplined, cantankerous, drinking excessively, and experimenting with judicial astrology, he neglected his parochial duties, and was suspended by the Synod (1736-39).

Wrote theological tracts and a novel, as well as numerous letters, which often concerned navigation, to scholars and learned societies.
