Subject: [MORRIS] KY-Morris Families
Among my Morris papers I found pages I copied from a book "Christian
Co. KY, Volume 1", 1986. This book has writeups submitted by various
their families. I did not copy the entire Morris section, but the
oldest reference I did copy is to
Captain John Morris, born Feb. 10, 1793 at Paris, KY. He died Aug.
20, 1872 in Robertson Co. (See Perrin's History of Christian Co. KY,
1884, page 390). He was
the son of Morris Morris and Sarah Cushman. He was married 3 times.

The next oldest Morris that I have from this book is MAURICE MORRIS,
born June 27, 1828 in Bourbon Co. KY where he lived until he moved to
Christian Co in 1870. He is the son of Capt. John and his second
wife, Elizabeth. Maurice married Nov. 18, 1852 to Mary Layson (born
Dec. 28, 1835 in Bourbon Co.) They had 10 children:
John Martin (1853-1926)
