Morgan attended the public schools.

He was a member from New York County of the New York State Assembly in 1819. In 1826, Morgan's adopted daughter Catherine (a niece of his first wife) married John Adams Dix who was then hired by Morgan to look after his land holdings in Cooperstown. Dix later became a US Senator, Union Army General and Governor of New York.

Morgan was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the 17th, and re-elected as a Jacksonian Democratic-Republican to the 18th United States Congress, holding office from December 3, 1821, to March 3, 1825.

Morgan was elected as a Jacksonian to the 23rd United States Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Cornelius Van Wyck Lawrence and served from December 1, 1834, to March 3, 1835.

He was again a member of the State Assembly in 1836 and 1840. In February 1841, Morgan was appointed by President Martin Van Buren as Collector of the Port of New York to replace Jesse Hoyt who had been involved in the Swartwout-Hoyt scandal. A month later, Morgan was removed by the new President William Henry Harrison who had defeated Van Buren for re-election.

Morgan was buried in the Trinity Churchyard in New York City.
