Harriett I may be able to help you. I've done extensive research on the McMorris Family which moved from Alabama to Texas. I have found W M Carmicheal listed on deed records, court records, and census records of VanZandt Co,TX. Believing there is a connection here just not quiet certain as to how. W M Carmichael living near *Benjamin F McMorris (*b:1841-d:1918 Travis Co,TX), whom I beleive may be the father of your W H McMorris!
