I was wondering if anyone had any information on the children of the above referenced couple. I have a Rebecca Morton who is the mother of my great great grandmother.She was born in Maine and married George Washington Parks in Maine.They later left Maine and settled in Licking County, Ohio.
I read on the internet that the marriage date for Thomas Morton and Sylvina Gilkey was November 29, 1792 in Maine (probably Hancock County). My Rebecca Morton was born about June 20, 1800 in Maine.According to cemetery records from the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Newark,Licking County, Ohio, Rebecca died January 11, 1858 and her parents are listed as Thomas Morton and Salina ?(no maiden name listed).I am wondering if Salina is actuallySylvina Gilkey since Sylvina could easily be mistaken for Salina.Any insight you may have into the family of this couple would be greatly appreciated.
