Any one still on here or read these.I'm not sure I can be of help except for similarities.My husband descends from a Morris line.Robert J. Morris b abt 1806 Binghamton, Broome, NY.He married Rebecca Coleman b abt 1807 in Binghamton, Broome, NY. Robert may have been b else where in NY.They were m 1829 in Wayne Co. IN.They are in Belvidere, Boone Co. IL in 1840. 1850 through 1870 and their deaths they are in Marengo, McHenry Co. IL.
Son Robert Jr. lived in Seneca, Woodstock, IL in 1870.Daughter Kathern (Katherine) married lst Theadore Brown.He ran off after several children.She divorced and remarried John Westfall and my husband line was started.Theadore is said to have returned 20 years later an old man and expected Kathern to leave John and take him back and care for him in his old age.I imagine she laughed very hard.
There were also Colemans in Marengo.I'm not sure if they were related to Rebecca but I think the chances are that they were.John R Coleman and family.
Any knowledge of this family would be appreciated.
One note. As people moved into unpopulated areas they tended to rename them for the areas they came from.I've seen the Morris name in Seneca NY also.
