My orris line is a mystery to me!!
This is what I know
Rachel Cherry married Sam Cherry in Stewart County Tn, This was where her family was from, But they had moved to Triggs Co Ky, before 1880,
Rachel Married Sam B. Cherry in 1882 they had one child Kind Darsis Cherry born April 15 1884.
By 1887 Rachel married James B. Morris in Trggs co Ky.
they had three children.
Gus born abt 1890 (sorry to say this is my grandfather I know nothing on him he died abt 1919 he married Ellen Dodson and I have found very little in her since she married (Am told 8 times). I know she was born in Honersvill Mo died in Kearny Nb. when she died she was Ellen Shackelford.

Mary Morris I am told she married a Lee Pollard and she died very young , I do have a picture of her.I am told she died of T.B.??/

Charles Henry Morris born June 11 1899 in Dover Tn Stewart ZCo. He app. for s.s. card in 1938 he could not read or write, there are two other names on the bottom of it one is John Warren, one appears to be Mark Rose or rose G??? Cardwell mo. Uncle Charlie told my mother they can to Missouri when he was a bout 8 (1908?) that his mother died when he was 18 1917? I have never found and thing on her She was listed on Charley ss -5 as Julia Rachel Cherry on King Cherry's as Rachel.
Uncle Charlie married Synthia Gilbert in ? she died in 1968 and is buried in Antioch cemetery.

My uncle King Cherry married 4. times 1. Elizabeth Grant 2. Abagail Johnson 3. Elsie Dodson 4. Minnie??
The third wife Elsie was Ellen Dodson sister .
Now Elsie was said to have married 4 times . this is where it gets funny!
Elsie married
1.Lee Pollard (yes Mary Morris's husband after Mary died)

2. Frank Wilson he died about 1928, they had two children Madelin born about 1922 James Edward Wilson born 1926 in Greenville , Wastington co Mississippi .raised around Fairdealing Mo?

3. Bill Stone , they had one child Melvie Lee born 1931

4. King Darsis Cherry I am told he lived with her before they married . They married about 1935?

My Uncle Charley had no children
My aunt Mary had no children (that lived)
My Uncle King had only step children
My grand father Gus had two children by Ellen Dodson Rachel died at a few months, and my father K.Ethridge Morris .
I am told that my Unle King worked for the railroad and he went to Missouri to get away from his step father James B. Morris. After he came to Missouri Rachel, Gus Mary and Charlie came. James did not . and this is about as far as I have got on these Morrises.
