|Bio and Links|
Born 02 May 1943 to Percy Iven & Flossie Lola(Love)Morrison in Kankakee, IL. Attended school in the Kankakee area until I graduated from Kankakee Senior High School in 1961. Graduated with a BS Degree from Illinois State University, Normal, IL., in 1965. Taught in Rich Township Schools, District 227, Richton Park, IL., for the next 35 years. During that time, I earned a Master's Degree from the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana, IL. I completed all the requirements for a doctorate in history from Illinois State University except for the last chapter of my dissertation; hence I am classified as "ABD"--all but dissertation. Retired from Rich Township(Rich South)in 2000.|
I then went to work for the Forest Preserve District of Will County in their "Operations" Department. I was stationed at the Monee Reservoir, just south of Monee, IL., for eight years, before I retired from that position. My intentions are to stay retired, but one never knows,
Married twice. Have two sons, Darren Ray (deceased-04 Jan 2010) & Scott Douglas Morrison. Have lived in unincorporated Monee since 1982 in the log cabin home I and my wife built on 2 1/2 wooded acres. Completed a "Love Family" history in 1994 for my Mother's side of the family--the Loves. Am currently working on a family history of the Morrisons of Illinois.I take a great deal of pride in being a contributor to Find A Grave. All pictures taken are sent through several photo programs to come up with the best enhanced picture possible before it is posted to a memorial. The last thing I wish to do is offend anyone with the postings I make to Find A Grave. If you object to any posting, please alert me and I will remove it. Please do not send me obituaries to post to memorials I have created. Find A Grave specifically suggests "It is best to not copy obituary notices from newspapers... to memorials..."
I prefer you leave a public message, but you may email if you wish.

|Roger C. Morrison||Barbara Patton Morrison|
My name is Roger C. Morrison, I'm am a 6th generation direct decedent of Robert and Dorothea Maharg Montgomery Morrison who immigrated to America in 1832 with most of their family who included their daughter Barbara Patton Morrison. I have documented in Find-A-Grave much of the Robert and Dorothea descendants, it was brought to my attention that your entry 44587454 for Barbara is a duplicate of my entry 156575729. Yours being the oldest of the two entries. I have information in my entry that you don't have, and you have information in your entry that I don't have. I would be more than happy to take charge of Barbara's entry and merge the two entries into your 44587454 entry. Or, I can give you the information you need to update your entry and when that was accomplished delete my entry, however, I do not want to delete my entry unless the information in it is carried forward into the remaining Find-A-Grave entry for Barbara.
On a seperate issue, I have done quite a bit of research on the Morrisons, 1616 - 1832 and after the immigration to America in 1832. Regarding Barbara Patton, my database goes 4 generations past Barbara to a Doris L. Patton and members of the Barton families. If you would be interested in exchanging information about these individuals I can be reached at email@example.com . Incidentally, in your Find-A-Grave entry for Barbara you stated she was from Dublin. That may be the port which the Morrisons sailed from in Ireland, however, they actually lived in the Dromore and Claggan areas of Northern Ireland. The original homestead in Claggan still stands today. I've never looked into ship manifests to any great degree, I would be interested in knowing where you came up with the Dublin information.
Looking forward to hearing from you. firstname.lastname@example.org Roger C. Morrison b: 1943

Hiya. Thanks for your efforts at Find A Grave. I'm writing to ask for your permission to use your headstone photos of my family members with my public family tree at Ancestry.com. You and Find A Grave would be credited. The one I'm looking at is for Garland Landess (No. 36287427), but there might be others. Please reference Garland Landess when responding. Thanks again. -- Randall McCoach, Albuquerque, N.M., MyCatCyd@yahoo.com

I have just recently returned from a trip to Peotone, Illinois where I "visited" with some of my ancestors at the Peotone Cemetery.
I also visited the old Goodspeed Farmstead at the edge of the township. The old Goodspeed home is still there. There is a question about whether it was built by Samuel Goodspeed or his daughter and son-in-law James & Harriet "Hattie" Goodspeed Morrison after they moved onto the farmstead.
With your home being in Monee, I am guessing that you might descend from this same Morrison family. Is that true? Hattie Goodspeed was my 3rd great aunt. Are we cousins?

|Diane Miller||RE: Darren Ray Morrison|
It is an honor to visit your son although I wish I could visit more often.
I am so sorry for the loss of your son.
Until you see him again, God's Best to You.
|Charles Brinkley||RE: Marcellis Simpson|
Don, I presume that my sources didn't get sent. Marcellis's vital statistics came from his father's obituary, Census records, Cook County Marriage Index, Cook County Death Index. He was a distant cousin to me, both of us descended from Samuel and Mary Swain Simpson of NC. Charles
