Editor's Note: Roger Boone has passed away. Marjorie Morgan is alive and doing well.
Roger S. Boone of Springfield, Ohio, spent over ten years researching and collating the Scarbrough/Haworth families.
Mrs. Marjorie B. Morgan's background was Quaker. She was raised on a farm in a small southwestern Kansas community. She was a graduate of Friends University, Wichita, KS. and Kansas State University, Emporia, KS. In 1986, she retired early from the Wichita Public Schools, making it possible to pursue personal interests -- especially genealogy. She had been doing research for over 35 years, and was the former editor of the quarterly magazine for the Mid-west Genealogical Society.
Roger had asked Marjorie Morgan to prepare his data for publication, with the following goals:
1. to provide an opportunity for family members to up-date their family information for publication,
2. to collect photos and documents relevant to the Scarborough/Haworth family,
3. to publish a quarterly newsletter, and
