Pat, yes, I found the dates and names of two of his wives in a Fayette County, Cem. book which I ordered from the Fayette County Historical Society but it does not list James G. Morris anywhere! He could be buried in unmarked grave. His wife is listed as Sarah J. in one census record and she is listed simply as Mary in another. This is not uncomman. She could have had 3 names instead of two. I have run into this with some in my Griggs line. One child was named Sarah Ann Wiley Griggs but on her marriage record she is listed as Mary Griggs. She may have had four names instead of three. Sometimes they also used nick names. In my mother's line one relative used Dollie Mae and everyone called her by that name but her birth name was Emily Ann! I don't have a copy of James G. Morris' will. Sometimes marriage records cannot be found either even in the clerk office of Fayette Co., Ga. as I have also discovered with my grt. grt. grandmother and tried several avenues to find it but to no avail. Have no ideal if James married his son's wife or not.
