David,

I don't have an actual copy of this record, it was shared by another researcher - but I think this is your Benoni although it lists the name as Nenoni. Do you have more on his children that might help prove my theory?

My grgrandmother was Kisiah (Morlan) Gates, daughter of Benoni and Signor (Walker) Morlan. This (Nenoni) is the right person. I have more info, please contact me.

Barbara,

Thanks for contacting me - I tried to contact you directly, but the email was returned as undeliverable.

You do have more data - I didn't have a maiden name
for Benoni's wife.

Any idea how or if Benoni is related to a Richard
Morlan (1799-1865) - Jemima the widow of Martin
Hammock (who is mentioned as a witness to Benoni's
will) married a Richard Morland in 1861.

Jim

I am part of the Parke Co.,Indiana Morlans.
My grandfather was William Morlan and grandmother was Jennie (Pruitt) Morlan born approx 1960-70.
My Father was Glen O. Morlan born 1908
Uncle Albert Morlan was born 1902
Aunt Opal (Purcell) Morlan
Aunt Lucille (Phelps) Morlan were all born in Parke Co.
They may have been other children, but lost track of the family after Mother died in 1941.
Hope this helps.

Benoni is my 2grgrandfather... would you be willing to share more information on his wife ... Yours is the only reference I've been able to locate indicating her name was Signor Walker. All other references have her as Sinah.

Thanks.
