Re: Morris Connection?
I can't confirm or deny that your Matthew M and Michael Morris could be brothers of this John Morris, but I can tell you a little about John Morris.
John Morris' parents were called Michael and Katie.Michael's father was called Matthew.John was known locally either as "John Katie" from his mother or as "John Micky Watyin" from his father.
I am aware of only one brother of John: he was Patrick, a blacksmith in Carnanrancy, born about 1860.
Finally, the mother of either John Morris or Susan Bradley — I don't know which — was surnamed Stewart.
So at present it is a mixture of persuasive coincidences and flat contradictions.No doubt all will be explained in time.
