I wonder if you are Terry McDonald. Shall we consider George Washington Morey married Catherine Sugar Abt. 1847? He was B: NY F: CT M: CT. In various censuses he was: 1860 aged 39, 1870 aged 52, and 1880 aged 61 leading to a birth Abt. 1818
Eugene Rensselaer Morey was b. 30 Dec 1857 Jackson, Tioga, PA, USA married Abt. 1886 possibly Lansing, Tompkins, NY, USA Sarah Tichnor and d. 26 May 1914 Lansing, Tompkins, NY, USA.
Kenneth Calvin Morey was b. 20 Dec 1899 Lansing, Tompkins, NY, USA m. Winifred Fairclough b. 20 Apr 1904 NY, USA d. 12 Feb 1997 Truxton, Cortland, NY, USA
Looking at Moreys B: NY F: CT M: CT we do not have many options. Here is one:
1818 Dexter A MOREY M B 11 May 1818 George MOREY Elizabeth BENTLEY Anne MEYERS B: NY F: CT M: CT Lebanon Madison NYNW USA BIR KLN Eliza Bentley Morey Forum
I consider KLN Eliza Bentley is KLN RI George, the problem here being Dexter A Morey b. 11 May 1818 stymies George Washington Morey being born the same year unless they were twins.
Next is your George Morey b. Abt 1818, location unknown. If he were KLN Eliza Bentley he was born Lebanon, Madison, NY, USA:

NYNW is my way of dividing NY into areas (North West in this case).
Next is Charles William Morey 1850 aged 27, 1860 aged 37, 1880 aged 57, and 1900 aged 77 matching 15 Jan 1823, place of birth hard to determine:
1823 Charles William MOREY M B 15 Jan 1823 David Thompson MOREY Nancy BURDICK Esther Elizabeth COPLEY B: NY F: CT M: CT Otselic Chenango NY USA NY CEN 1900 1017 060 m 56y 8 ch 4 liv KLN Esther Copley Morey Forum CBJ 064
I think KLN Esther Copley is KLN RI George. I am pretty certain it is. But (always but); David Thompson Morey was b. 27 Jan 1798 NH, USA, not CT, USA:
1798 David Thompson MOREY M B 27 Jan 1798 James MOREY Rachel THOMPSON Nancy BURDICK Orford Grafton NH USA BIR KLN RI George Morey Forum
Does it not drive you crazy? Rensselaer is generally a KLN RI Roger Mowry name.
I do not think we got anywhere did we? Your Kenneth Calvin Morey was drafted for the first war:
1899 Kenneth Calvin MOREY M B 20 Dec 1899 Eugene Rensselaer MOREY Sarah TICHNOR Winifred FAIRCLOUGH B: NY F: NY M: NY Lansing Tompkins NY USA US WW1 Draft 0765 US Military KLN Catherine Sugar Morey Forum DRS 001
Who were his Morey children?
Kind regards, Geoffrey
