I am trying to make the connection the Henry Morris of Brunswick Co, William Morris of Lunenburg Co, & Jesse Morris Sr of Mecklenburg Co - all of whom owned land in Mecklenburg Co - and all 3 counties were once the same county.

Henry Morris of Brunswick never lived in Mecklenburg although he was the 1st Morris to patent land there. William Morris patented land the next year.

By 1780's Jesse Morris Sr & an Abraham Morris own land in Mecklenburg.

Jesse Sr of Mecklenburg named a son Henry & Henry of Brunswick who was much older than Jesse Sr named a son Jesse - but I have not found a direct connection & believe there must be one. These 3 men were only a few miles apart.

Any Morris researchers who have connecting information? Thx - Ginie
