I have MORNINGS in OH. My Morning family came from Co Derry & Co Antrim in 1832, as per the naturalization records I have obtained, as well as marriage records and passenger ship records.. The MORNINGS still reside in these areas of Ireland. My MORNING surname has been identified in U,S, Census records spelled as MORNING, MOURNING, MORNIN, MURNING, and MORNE to name a few. There were 3 brothers and 1 sister who all left Ire., together in 1832, one brother from this family remained in Derry. I have extensive MORNING family info from 1790 to the present. This particular MORNING family were Presbyterians and baptism and parish records exist in Ire. I also know there were other MORNING family members that were already living in Canada, OH, and PA, prior to my direct line coming over in 1832....these families were all connected. Good luck on your research. I wouldn't dwell on any one particular spelling or pronounciation, it all depended on the census takers once they got here to the U.S. I just happened to get lucky by finding documention and then actual death and obituary records as well.
