Re: Silas Morris, DeWitt Colonist
Where was your Silas Morris in 1830? I find three:

one in Cadiz, Harrison, Ohio
second in Broad Creek, Sussex, Delaware
third in Tipton, Tennessee
In 1840 there is a Silas Morris in Uhricks, Tuscarawas, Ohio and another in Northwest Fork Hundred, Sussex, Delaware. Perhaps the Silas who was in Tipton, TN moved to Texas.
1830 Tipton, TN Silas M. Morris

If your Silas Morris was already in TX in 1830, he likely received a land grant.
No 1830 or 1840 TX census; there is an 1842 tax record. Washington on the Brazos was in 1842 and still is in Washington Co., TX.
I found no Silas Morris on 1850 TX census and no Morris in Washington Co., TX. Do you know where your Morris family was in 1850?
