Please !
Can anyone help me with my Mortons ?

My grandfather was Charles Walton Morton jr of Omaha,Ne. His father owned Morton & son Co.-Hardware in Omaha.
Charles Morton & Sarah Turner had three children Charles jr,James(he got the hardware co.) & Dorothy was a music teacher & pianist.She moved to Orlando,Fla. & married (Parks).
Charles jr Married Mildred Wadleigh Penick of Oquawka,Il.,Burlington,Ia. & Franklin /New Orleans,La.They lived in Omaha for a time & my mother was born there(Patricia Joan Morton-(1920) & came east to Cambridge,Ma.Where they spent the rest of their married lives together(he was a journalist)
Charles jr died in 1967 & Mildred married again to Benjamin Forrest Sylvester(editor of the Omaha World herald Newspaper)
Latter Mildred moved back to Cambridge,Ma.& died soon after(1973)as Mildred Penick Sylvester.

I would be most gratefull for anything that you have.
Thank you ! JWB
