  • Asbury Park Press, New Jersey, 7 Feb 2004, p 3 Elizabeth Waln Meirs Morgan, 90, of Forked River, Lacey, died Friday, Feb. 6, of a stroke. Mrs. Morgan, sometimes nicknamed "The Pines Baroness," was well known for her environmental and historical activism, her prodigious knowledge of the history and nature of Ocean and Monmouth counties, and her Episcopal church work. She was born and raised in New Egypt. After receiving her bachelor of arts and master of arts degrees from Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania, she was a teacher and social worker until she married in 1941. She was the author of church-related publications and was a correspondent on history and nature for Ocean County newspapers. She served as president and board member of the Ocean County Historical Society and was active in several other local historical societies. She loved history, exploring, "botanizing," and bird-watching. She was a lifelong volunteer educator, a formidable repository of local lore and a witty, wise raconteur. A portrait of Mrs. Morgan by artist Linda Reddington hangs in the Wells Mills County Park nature center to honor her advocacy to save the area. She was predeceased by her husband, the Rev. Luman J. Morgan, in 1993; her parents, John and Sarah Henshaw Meirs; and a brother, John Meirs, in 1993. Surviving are two sons, James S. Morgan of Barrington, and Nicholas W. Morgan of Columbus.
