I am looking for a book called "The George Morris Family of Ten Mile" "A story of the Pioneer Families of the Ten Mile Valley In Harrison Co. West Virginia". I also heard that it was published under the name of Pioneer Families of Ten Mile Valley. If anyone has any info on this book I would really appreciate it. I am directly linked to the George Morris in this book and would love to have a copy. You may e-mail me directly at Animal3144@aol.com
Thanks a bunch!

BRETT: DID YOU LOOK FOR HIM IN THE 1860 CENSUS LIVING WITH HIS PARENTS? IF THEY ARE LISTED THEN GO BACK AND LOOK FOR HIS FATHER LIVING WITH HIS PARENTS IN THE CENSUS ETC. I ALSO HAVE MORRIS AS A COLATERAL LINE MARRYING INTO MY ACORD LINE IN RALEIGH COUNTY. LOOK ALSO IN LOGAN COUNTY BEFORE 1840 (IF MEMORY SERVES ME RIGHT THATS WHEN FAYETTE WAS FORMED IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN 1830 BUT NO DIFFERENCE) LOOK IN LOGAN COUNTY AND THEN THE COUNTIES THAT WERE USED TO FORM FAYETTE. I FOUND INFORMATION IN FINCASTLE, MONTGOMERY, AUGUSTA, GREENBRIER, MONROE, GILES, LOGAN, FAYETTE(MY GG GRANDPARENT'S MARRIAGE WAS FOUND THERE) WYOMING THEN RALEIGH. ALL OF THESE COUNTIES HAD OUR GEOGRAPHICAL AREA IN THEM AT ONE TIME. HAPPY HUNNTING! LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES.

This line interests me in that Elizabeth Morris married James William Samples. She is the daughter of George Morris and Sarah Ross. They lived in Harrison County, WV in the TenMile area.
