My great grandfather was Peter Mitchell Morrisette, b. 1880. His brothers were J. P. Morrisette & Rowland Morrisette, and he had a sister, name not known. Peter was born & died in Princess Anne County, VA. In researching my other llines, I have found a lot of crossovers between PA County and Currituck County, NC. Since I can not find any other information about my Morrisettes in VA, I am curious as to whether anyone has run across these names in Currituck? Maybe they came to VA from NC.

My gggrandparents Elizabeth and J. Morrisette lived in Shiloh, Camden Co., N. C. and ran a store there. Their daughter Lilly (Dixie) Morrisette married William Riley Etheridge . Lillie was born 12/10/1861. Lilly and her brothers ended up in Norfolk, Va. One was a Norfolk Police Detective. There are Morrisette's in North Carolina.

I haven't found anything past 1880, when Peter was born.

I do have some 2nd, 3rd, Morrisette cousins who lived in Norfolk in the 1900's.

Do you have the names, birth/death dates, etc. of Lilly's brothers? .

Surnames: Gallup, Morrissette
Ms. Sykes, my gg grandmother was Penelope Morrissette who married Jeremiah Gallup about 1841. They moved to Princess Anne County after the Civil War. Would you happen to know if she is connected to your Morrissettes, or any of the Morrissettes in Camden County?

Donald,
Penelope Morrisette/Jeremiah Gallup were also my gg grandparents. I just got back from a trip to Salt Lake City. I did some research at the Mormon History Library there. I found a book entitled "Camden County Cemeteries", Vol.I by Gloria Twiddy Wesner. On page 29, I found a listing for our gg grandparents in a GALLUP & MORRIS CEMETERY. Jeremiah Gallup, b. Jan.1, 1819 in Camden Co. NC d. Apr.13, 1871 in Princess Ann Co. VA. Penelope Gallup, wife of Jeremiah Gallup, b. Nov.15, 1817 in Camden Co. NC d. Nov.13, 1884 in Currituck Co. NC. I would be happy to share what I have with you and find out how far our lines tie together. You may E-mail me directly at ajvermont@adelphia.net if you want to pursue this further.
Thanks, Alice
