I wrote a Morgan Boys history for Chicagogangs.org but I do not think it is very accurate. First of all I know now the Morgan Boys have been around before 1989 especially since I have seen pics from the mid-1980s. It is still possible they may have branched off from the Party People because I have seen a pic from 1985 with them in black and white sweaters.
I am not sure exactly when the Morgan Boys started but they formed around 16th to 17th and Morgan in the Pilsen section of the Lower West Side neighborhood, not 18th and Morgan like I put on Chicagogangs.org.
The Morgan Boys joined the Folk nation at some point but only the Pilsen chapter joined Folks while hanging out with the Racine Boys.
In the mid-1980s, the Morgan Boys opened turf at 32nd and Morgan in the Bridgeport neighborhood and allied with Latin Kings from 51st and Ada, Bishops and Latin Counts. These Morgan Boys joined the People alliance but this did not bring war with the Morgan Boys in Pilsen who were Folks. The Morgan Boys attempted to take over Morgan Street and much of Bridgeport but the 33rd and Morgan Latin Kings and Satan Disciples from 32nd and Lituanica put up much resistance and even involved police which caused legal troubles for these MBs.
I am not sure about the Chukkie shooting of 1990 if it actually happened or not, nor do I really know much more except that the Folk nation Morgan Boys from Pilsen went extinct sometime around the late 1990s to early 2000s.
Please send in 1980s and 1990s pics! If they existed in the 1970s please send in those pics!
