Hi, you said you are looking for descendents of John Morse (Justice of the Peace)& Lucy FOSHEE/FOSHA. I am a descendent. Their son, John Wiley "Bull" Morse, was my grandmother's grandfather. Bull Morse had Lucy Jane Angeline Morse who married David Amy Olds. They had Dollie Olds who married Thomas Mose Morgan, my grandparents. I can confirm this is the same family by your listing of the families their children married into. Fish was Isaac Fish who was he second husband of Sarah Jane, John and Lucy's first child. Isaac and Sarah Jane had children: Lucy, John, Martin, Lettie who married Mart Smith, and Angie who married Willie Williams. Sarah Jane's first husband was William M. Hearn, who she married 10/27/1859. Dunn was John T. Dunn, husband of their daughter, Martha. John and Martha Dunn had at least twelve children, five of whom died in infancy and are buried at the Olds Cemetery, Jasper County, Tx. The other known children are William Issac, 1867-1954, who married Christiana “Janey” Whitmire, James Thomas, 1870-1944, who married Mary Alless Michell, Nancy Elizabeth, 1872-1925, who married Robert Henry Terrell, Sarah C., 1875-1964, who married Mecco Michell, Margaret Lee, 1877-1955, who married Charles Edward Dunn, and Mora A, 1881-1974, who married William E. Grant.Johnson was Martin V. Johnson who married their daughter, Letice.

Foshee/Fosha was Marion Foshee who married their daughter, Nancy, in their old age. They had no children together. Stevenson I do not know about. Goode was Nancy Marion "Nannie" Goode who married their son Richard Gipson Morse. They adopted twins Mable and Mirtle Williams. I don't know about Smith. Franklin was Ralph M. Franklin who married their daughter Lucy Catherine and had children Alvin, Ara Ann, David and Pearlie. Curry was Wiley C. Curry who married their daughter Angelina on 7/19/1866 after she was widowed when her first husband Andrew Jackson Whitmire was killed in a bear hunting accident by Jerry Dunn. I have details of this in a story passed down by my grandmother. I show children of Angelina and Andrew Jackson Whitmire to be John and Elias who married Louisa Goode, then Dora Coleman. I show children of Angelina and Wiley C. Curry to be Dick (Richard), Marion, Rose, Jim, Tom, Maggie, and Jettie. I don't know about Burk/Burt. I know this is an old thread. Hope you are still interested. Let me know. I have more info on John Morse.
