“Lydia's partner was Oliver Morgan, Jr. He traveled to Guyana with her, and also lived in Cottage 31. Oliver also had a relationship with Betty Daniel, and the child she took to Guyana with her, Marcus Morgan, was his son. According to his daughter, Oliver went to get to Guyana to get his family out, but was not successful and died with everyone else in Jonestown. We would love it if a family member remaining has a photograph they could share with us. ” - Kathryn Barbour
