Looking for parents or siblings of William Harrison Morrison (b. in TX 1874) Aunt's birth certificate shows he was born in Comanche County, but not whether that was TX of OK
He married Effie Mae Chastain (b. in Round Rock, TX February,1880) in 1895 and they were living in Rusk County in the 1900 census. They had daughters Virda (whose birth certificate says she was born in Erath County, and Willia Mae on this census. A son, Charles Leon Morrison was born in Waxahachie TX in 1901, and a son Rene Furman (later changed to Jack) was born 18 months latter
Can't find them on 1910 census, but in 1920 they were living in Dallas, TX with a 10 year old son, Oscar E. who was born in N.M. so they were probably in NM in 1910
In 1930 they were living in Dallas in Oak Cliff area.
Will died in Dallas in 1941, and Effie Mae died in Dallas in 1951. Both are buried at Southpark Cemetary in Houston
Will and Effie had 9 daughters and 4 sons, only one of whom is still alive.
Death certificates do not list William's parents names.
All this info is verified on census lists.
