RE: Andrew Garrett Morris
5 Mar 2016

Dear Linda--

Thanks for your query. Our last communication was three years ago this month!

-the short answer re DNA - no, I have not considered following that path.

Past research led me to conclude that the Clarke Co, GA Morrises were not related to my descendant line:

Thomas Morris (abt 1725 - 1791, SC)
William Morris (abt 1755-1830, GA)
Garrett Morris (1792, SC--1875< AL)
Samuel C. Morris (1833, SC -- 1904, CA) etc.


1. You mention Garrett Morris (1792) buried in Oak Bowery, AL. I do not think he was the father of anyone in Clarke Co. However, it is possible that the Clarke Co. Morrises are related to Garrett (1792-1875) as cousins. Interestingly, no one seems to have pursued the possibility.

-1820, Clarke Co, Ga = Garret Morris, age 26-44
-1830, Clarke Co, GA = Garritt Morris, age 30-39

and then

-1820, Pendleton Distr, SC = Garrett Morris, age 26-44
-1830, Anderson Co., SC = Jarret Morris , age 30-39

[A NOTE: It seems many people use "Andrew Garrett Morris" re (1792) Garrett. Over the last thirty years of research, I have never seen any document supporting this added "Andrew." See my note re the gravestone photo at Find A Grave Memorial# 37369328. I would, however, be glad to examine any research or documentation that leads to such a conclusion.]

2. Garrett Morris (1792) presumably had an uncle; i.e., a Garrett Morris (ca. 1749 - aft 1788) of York and Chester Cos., SC [I have no spouse or children for this earlier Garrett; nor any records after 1788]. Would Garrett Morris of Clarke Co., GA be related to the elder Garrett Morris of Chester Co., SC???

And thus your query about DNA. If you or someone wanted to pursue the DNA route, I would consider contributing (saliva ??). The government already has my fingerprints and the tel. # of my truck!

3. The manuscript of my family history is available on in the Kindle Reader library. There are a series of "books" [original text with research citations/notes] so that researchers can choose the families and/or period that interests them. [search = Morris Saylor history, etc.]
If you do not do Kindle reader ebooks (I personally do not), the site does enable one to see summaries and a couple sample pages, etc.

4. Finally, for any research collaboration re Morrises, please contact me directly at <>

I believe there is a typo on the typed date for Victoria Morris's birthdate. Someone typed born 1845 but she was born 1854 which is shown on the stone.
