That's true, you can just enter things directly into Ancestry.com trees. In face I've done a bit of that on a Dardinger Family Tree. I just find it easier to have the software directly on my computer. Anyway I'd come across your Morris Family tree while trying to find more info and was wondering about some of the information there which is a bit different or additional than in your original post in this thread. In particular that you have Samantha's surname as Tunneyhill. Is there a source for that in the military records? Likewise you have Felix as William Richard's grandfather. Is there evidence this is correct? Obviously official information trumps speculation or guesswork, but with super common names like William Smith it's very easy to pick the wrong one and run with it. I have both a William Miller and a David Evans as brick walls in my mother's tree, and know from experience the pitfalls of trying to find the next generation back.

BTW, if you want to discuss things away from this board, let me know and I'll send you my e-mail address via your Ancestry screen name.
