I started working on my family tree in the late 1980s and still continue. I belong to Ancestry.com which helps provide me with long-lost relatives. My family always considered me the family historian and receipient of all things family. Consequently, my house overflows with many much loved antiques from our grandparents and great grandparents.|

Thanks for sponsoring his memorial.
|Melody Addington||RE: Photo Request|
You are welcome!
|Lila Shull||Melissa Sharrock Brice|
Melissa's mother was Katherine Custer. Katherine's father was Adam Custer and her mother was Sarah Margaret Gross. Katherine died between the 1850 and 1860 Federal Census. Katherine and her children are mentioned in Adam Custer's probate papers from Warren County, Tennessee dated 1873.
Adam Custer was my 3rd great grandfather. His son, John Martin Custer, was my 2nd great grandfather. I was recently contacted by a descendant of Katherine Custer and I have started looking for more information on the family.
Ok...got your message different families. Ty!!

Hi, Can you tell me if Cora's date of death has been engraved on her headstone? Her husband Luther Paul Morris is my 2nd cousin and I just wanted to check to make sure. If not I will see on getting done.

|Terri Johnson||RE: Frances and James Burger|
Thank you. I am sad when I see a couple buried in different cemeteries. Glad you sent the information!!
|Terri Johnson||J Burger|
Thank you. I added the information to the memorial. I also connected him to his wife. I would be glad to transfer if you would like.
|James A Morris||RE: Andrew Garrett Morris|

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
-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 Amazon.com 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 <>

If you would like any transfers of your families please let me know, you do not have to sponsor them.
You have a Great Day
