Ron, this is really strange that you have a S.W. Morrison in Crawford Co. AR and our family has a Selden Warner Morrison that grew up close by in Washington Co. AR. I just don't know if they could be the same person but I don't think so right now.

I have:
1870 Murray County, Georgia census.
Alexander Morrisson age 51 born Ga.
Louisa D. age 26 born Ga
Homer H. age 15 born Ga.
Olivia S. age 9 born Ga.
Mark K.B. age 6 born Ga.
Selden W. age 4 born Ga.
Cosby D. age 2 born Ga.

1880 Census of Washington Co. AR:
Alex R. Morrison age 64 born
Louisa D. age 37 born Georgia (wife)
Mark H.B. age 16 born Georgia (son)
Seldon W. age 13 born Georgia (son)
Cosby D. age 11 born Georgia (son)
Mary L. age 9 born Georgia (daughter)
Sarah C. age 6 born Arkansas (daughter)
John A. age 3 born Arkansas (son)
Olivia S. D. age 19 born Georgia (daughter)

I have a paper in my Grandmother's handwriting listing the names & dates of birth of all her siblings that listed Selden Warner as being born on February 16, 1866 so it sounds as if these are 2 different people, mine being 11 years younger than the one you listed. The only other information I have on Selden Warner Morrison is a 1900 Census of Indian Territory, Ardmore, OK [before OK became a state] that list him as living with my Grandmother Olivia and her husband and occupation as a painter. I've tried to find something about him later but have been unable to find anything else so far.

I also don't know what happened to Cosby Davis Morrison either. Another son of this family, John A. in his later years lived with Mary Louisa Morrison Keef in Huntington Park CA, but don't know where he was before that. Mary L. later moved to Washginton State & lived near a great aunt. Sarah Catherine in later years at least lived in AR. Mark H. Bunion Morrison lived on the family land in Washington Co. AR I 'believe' all of his life.

See if any of this sounds familiar. I have our Morrison family back to abt. 1730 but so far the family Alex. R. Morrison is lost to me after 1880, with the exception of my Grandmother's line. I'd sure like to make a connection with your family but just don't know who Selden Warner married and right now it seems that these 2 men might be two separate people. Let me know what you think.
