I need help finding more information about the parents of Walter Morrell; born February 9, 1846 in Sumner, Maine and died on August 4, 1931 in Pender, Thurston, Nebraska.I am hoping this will help me go another generation back to their parents.

I have many records about my 2nd great grandfather Walter, but conflicting reports about his father, either John C. or Jason born in Maine. He was born anywhere from 1808-1817. His wife was Elizabeth Fairfield Glidden.

1850 Census
Lima, Sheboygan, Wisconsin

John C. 33 1817 Maine
Elizabeth 22 1828 Maine
Walter 4 1846 Maine
Lucy 2 1848 Maine
Charles 1 1849 Wisconsin

1855 Wisconsin Census
Jason Morrell
Lima, Sheboygan, Wisconsin

1860 Census

Jason or John C is not on the census

Elizabeth 31 1829 Maine
Walter 14 1846 Maine
Lucy W 13 1847 Maine
Charles G 11 1849 Maine
Edwin 9 1851 Wisconsin
Ida 6 1854 Wisconsin
Jason 3 1857 Wisconsin

Iowa Marriages 1809-1992

Jason Morrell and Elizabeth Glidden were listed as parents for the marriage of Walter Morrell and Lauraetta Rule, my 2nd great grandparents.

Any help would be appreciated.
