My great, great grandfather, William Morrow, came from Ireland around 1835 ish, married Catherine Moore in NYC. His 2 oldest sons, Robert and my great grandfather, William Morrow, were born in Ohio. Robert's family is centrally located in IN and MI, and William's family is centrally located in IL.

I don't yet know about my ancestors of my grandmother, Clara Morrow except from a very confusing note that I am currently trying to decipher. John Morrow, b 1787, d 1873, married Margaret Gillespie, and they came to America in 1812. They had ten sons including John Morrow, b July 26, 1817, d November 28, 1855, who married Margaret Gibson, b January 9, 1821, d May 27, 1866 in Memphis, Tennessee (her father was James Gibson, Sr., b 1787, d 1873). John, Jr. and Margaret had a son, Thomas Gibson Morrow, b September 13, 1844, d February 11, 1919, who married Mary Ann Story on April 10, 1866. Charles G. b 1871, Clara b 1870, and Lena were the children of Thomas and Mary Ann. Clara had a close relative (maybe a brother?), Rev. Chalmers G. Morrow she called Chap who lived at 315 1/2 North L Street in Tacoma, Washington (according to two postcards I have from 1934). Charles Morrow, Clara’s brother, married Aleta Soule and died in Tacoma in 1938. Clara”s sister, Lena Morrow Lewis, who lived in New York City, was a great influence on my life as a child when she would frequently send books and postcards to me and encouraged me to read. She gave me my first Bible inscribed with her name. I met her only once when I was very young.

I need help finding Thomas Morrow born abt. 1813 in North Carolina that married a Lavinia born in South Carolina. They were living in Blount Co., TN in 1840 but moved to McMinn Co., TN in 1850. Does anyone have these names in their family list? DNA proves to be from John* Morrow b: ABT 1725 in Prince Edward Co., VA.

Richard Morrow was born about 1808 in Buncome county, North Carolina. His father was James Morrow. By 1830 the family was in Cole county, Missouri, where Richard married Mary "Polly" Tomlinson. From 1850 to 1854 the family was in Grayson county, Texas. In 1855 they moved to Fort Scott, Bourbon, Kansas. Mary died in the fall of 1859 of consumption. Richard moved to Montgomery county, Kansas, in 1873, where he remained until after 1880. Some time in the 1880s he moved back to Grayson county, where he died in 1886.
