John Morris born 1763 is said to have died in Montour Falls 1805,the same year that his son Hiram Morris was born.
John Morris was married to Cynthia Bowers.
John and Cynthia had 3 children and possibly a 4th.
Definitely there were 1.Hiram Morris b.1805 d.1871 Meadville,Pa.married Delana Gorton B.1804 in Painted Post ,NY.married in 1827.Delana d.1850 Meadville, Pa. 2.James B.Morris B.? D.?living in Cohoes, NY per letters written to Hiram in East Painted Post (1834) 3.Clarissa Morris B.(this is where it gets tricky) circa 1810 M. Shoemaker and before 1850 moved to Oxford ,Michigan.E. Shoemaker and Clarissa were married in Big Flats, Chemung, County.
(legend has it there is also a John Nicol)
Johm Morris the father served in Hawthorns,Broadmore and Sullivans troops and departed a seargent.(according to DAR)
I have a wealth of information in the from of old letters ,deeds etc. Hiram was born in NY according to the 1870 census.I am at the end of my rope with trying to gather new information.Thank you
