In 1870 Senator Albert T. Morgan married Carrie Highgate in Mississippi USA. Her father was Charles Highgate from Pennsylvania. The Senator was quoted as saying that Carrie's blood was from the best stock of old England even though her G Grandmother Phillis Highgate had been enslaved in Pennsylvania. I believe he was referring to the person that impregnated Phillis was a Highgate from the ancient family of Thomas Higate that lived in Essex prior to the 16 Century or the family of Reginald Highgate born1529 in London England who had a daughter Elizabeth. I am trying to make the connection between the Pennsylvania Highgates and the Highgates from England or somewhere in the UK. I would appreciate any help offered .
