Pamela,
I'm sorry I didn't see your reply until now.

Here are my notes with information on John Morrison and Cora Harden:

Census: 1900 Murray Co GA ED71 SH16; She is listed as grand-dau Cora Harden 14 b Nov 1885 GA/GA/GA, with Orange Parrott. [I haven't found John in 1900]

Marriage: Murray Co GA, 15 Jan 1903, Cora Harden to John Morrison. [From Vital Records of North America, LDS CD]

Census: 1910 Murray Co GA Vol 71 ED110 SH 25; Morrison, John 26; Cora 23 m 8y 3ch/3liv; Lennie 6; Aline 4; Fletcher 2. [They are listed next after her sister, Georgia Blankenship and family.] [Note: The microfilm of this page is very poor.]

A tombstone in the Old Parrott Cemetery reads: "Coria Morrison, b Nov 4, 1885, d Feb 28, 1913." It is located about 30-35 ft from the tombstones of her grandparents, Orange and Elizabeth Parrott.

Census: 1920 GA Floyd Co; Vol. 49 E.D. 98 SH 25A; Lindale District 12 Jan; 320 Walnut St. H232/F237, Marshall, John 39, wd, spinner, cotton mill, Lennie 17, Alleen 15, Fletcher 1?, Bertha 10, May? 7, all b GA/GA/GA.
Also listed with John: Blankenship, Georgia P. 37, divorced, laborer, cotton mill; Willie 17, Marvin 12, Orange 10, Edgar 8, Pauline 4 10/12, all b GA/GA/GA.
They are all listed just above 318 Walnut St; H233/F238; Lizzie Clark and her children. [Note: 318 & 320 are the two sides of a duplex house in the "mill village" area of Lindale, GA]
Lizzie Clark and Georgia P Blankenship were the sisters of Cora. [John and Cora's name was Morrison, not Marshall, but the children's names match and they are living in the household with Cora's sister, Georgia and her children. The surname is Morrison is on marriage record and Coria's tombstone.]

Information from a descendant of Georgia Pratt:
"Georgia remarried a man named John Morrison, then after his death, she married Leonerd Jenkins." He said that Georgia died as a Jenkins in 1940.

The 1880 census was taken before John and Cora were born but there were two Morrison families listed next after Cora's parents and their older children. John may or may not be related to them, but it seems likely that he probably is.
