Robert Morrison was from Co. Down, N. Ireland. He came with his mother, a widow, and 5 siblings to Canada in 1841. He came to the Chatham area in 1852. He married Louisa Benedict in 1857. They had 6 children- Elihu, Bertha, William G., Charles, James A., and Helena. Helena married Hugh Tobey, a merchant in Chatham, Bertha married Charles Stevenson, Elihu married Caroline Simmonds. Robert later moved to the city of Chatham and is buried at Maple Leaf Cemetery. There was a relationship to Maria Morrison West, who in 1874 settled with her husband and family in Raleigh Township. Looking for any information on R J Morrison family or descendants. Thank you.

Thank you for the reply on the R J Morrison family. I had followed through on this information but still not able to find his place of birth other than Co. Down. I appreciate all the information. Would still like to find descendants. I will follow up on obituaries in the Chatham paper.
Regards,

Al,
I would be thrilled to have any information on this family. An obituary stated Robert Morrison West died at the home of his cousin Mrs. E. G. Morrison in Chatham, so therefore their is a connection. R J also signed the death record for my husband's gr gr grandfather West. I am willing to exchange information with you that I have researched.
Thank you
