Looking for ANY information, i.e., parents, siblings, on Catharine McElrath (born June 1851), who married Hayden Morris (02/28/1842-03/18/1918) in 1866. They lived in Spartanburg/Greenville County area of SC and had 8 children:
1. John J Morris, b. 1868.
2. Emily H Morris, b. 1871.
3. Alford Morris, b. 1874.
4.William Caldwell "Billie" Morris , b. 03/04/1878; d. 11/19/1916.
5. Elizabeth Morris, b. 03/1880.
6. Claytus "Clate" Morris, b. 01/23/1886; d. 03/11/1913.
7.Numa Morris, b. 07/1888.
8. D Davis Morris, b. 01/1890.
Hayden is buried at Fairview Baptist Church in Spartanburg. There is an unmarked grave beside him which MAY be Catharine.
Son Billie is also at Fairview, son Clate is buried just a couple of miles away in Glassy Mountain section of Greenville Count at Oak Grove Baptist Church. Any clues on Catharine or members of her family will be greatly appreciated.
