His background and early career.
Jamaican In Unique Position.
from Jamaica Times April 26 1913
ONLY NEGRO WHO IS A GREEK PRIEST.
I later received information from the Archives of the Episcopal Church in the U.S.A.on the career of
Robert Josias Morgan in the church there.
He was ordained deacon by Bishop Coleman in the Diocese of Delaware on June
20 1895; they have no record of his ordination to the priesthood of that church.
In 1898 he was transferred to the Missionary Jurisdiction of Ashville (now in the Diocese of Western North Carolina). In 1899 he was serving as assistant minister at St. Stephen's Chapel, Morganton and St. Cyprian's Church, Lincolnton.
Between 1900 and 1905 he seems to have moved between Philadelphia, Richmond, Virginia and Nashville, Tennessee. There is no further information on him in the Episcopal records, although he was still listed, until 1908, when he was suspended from his ministry for abandonment of the same.
The only other institution I have so far been able to check on is St. Aidan's Theological College, whose records contain no reference to him in the relevant period before he was ordained in the U.S.A.
