I'm hoping to find descendants of John E. and Eliza (nee MCKELVEY or MCKELVY) MORRISON of Ionia Co., Michigan.
Both were originally from New York but migrated to Oakland Co., MI where they married in 1830. A few years later, they moved on to Ionia Co., Michigan where they lived the rest of their lives.
John E. Morrison was born about 1805 in New York and died in 1884 in Ionia Co. Eliza McKelvey Morrison was born about 1815 in New York and died in 1880 in Montcalm Co., MI at the home of her daughter but had always resided in Ionia Co. Michigan. They had the following children: Joseph, Almira R., George , John E., Susan S., Mary E., Anna, Charles, and Myra.
I believe that some of them did not live to adulthood. Our great-great grandmother was Mary E. Morrison who married Curtis H. PHILLIPS. We would love to learn more about this family.
