I am trying to figure out the Morris families of Orange County In North Carolina.
in 1755, on a tax list you find Henry Morris, as well as Christian Morris.
In 1779, on a tax list you find William,Richard and Henry Sr.
in 1790, Census you find Henry,Richard and Hugh, all living in Hillsborough District., and over in Catham District is Joseph Morris.
In 1800, Census, I found Richard,Mary,John, Joseph and Isaac.
Does any one have any idea about these families, or thier descendants.
I suspect that Henry & Christian are the eldest in all of these,(in order to own land they would have to be 21 putting thier dates of birth at abt. 1730's. any help weeding through them would be greatly appreciated.
I am trying to locate the parents of my 5th grandmother Martha MORRIS, she was born in 1804, Orange County North Carolina, she has a brother named Lemuel Morris born 1798 Orange County North Carolina, they both relocated to Henry County Tennessee.
Thanks in advance for any help.
