Surnames: MORRIS, Elijah b. 182 born somewhere in Virginia & daughter Mary E. - born in Grundy county Missouri
Hi, I believe I stated that Elijah Morris was born in Virginia. I know where he is buried, he's buried in an un-platted grave in Oakview cemetery, Albia, Iowa. Yes he could be listed as being mulatto or black. He is a civ war vet. Since one if his daughter's Mary E. Morris was born in Grundy Co., Missouri, I was inquiring if there were any records in the coal mining corporations there or in Macon (another big coal mining area of Missouri that would give some information as to more specific information regarding his family at the time he lived in Grundy or Macon County. It appears I may have to inquire at the court houses where vital records should be stored?? If Mary E. Morris was born in 1862 in Grundy Co., (in a hospital or the like) and not at home (unregistered) then I may be able to find something there. I would hope. If no records can be located on her birth & none regarding his labor in the coal mines then I am still at a loss for information... Thanks.
