Re: Rachael reynolds\Abner Morrison
Posted by: James Bowman (ID *****8004) Date: February 21, 2004 at 21:46:12
In Reply to: Rachael reynolds\Abner Morrison by Wendell Mosley of 2013

Abner was a son of William Morrison, Sr. He is named in his father's will. Rachel is a daughter of John Reynolds, Sr. She is named in his will. Both the Morrison and Reynolds families had land on Indian Creek close to the holdings of Moses Moore and Joshua Roberts, making it close to location of Cherryville, N.C. Abner probably is the Abner Morrison enumerated in the 1820 census of Kentucky. My gg gfather Tom Morrison (abt 1825-1895) said in the 1870 census that he was born in Kentucky. Rachel Morrison seems to be the head of household enumerated as Widow Morrison in the 1830 census of Lincoln County, NC. From 1850 on Rachel is enumerated in the household of Tom Morrison and his wife Susie Kiser. In 1850 they are in Gaston County, in 1860 Cleveland County, in 1870 in York County, in 1880 Gaston County, and 1890 on Susie Kiser Morrison is enumerated in Cleveland county in #4 township near Kings Mtn. Tom Morrison is buried at El Bethel Methodist Church west of Kings Mtn. I do not know where Susie Kiser Morrison is buried, nor do I know her family of origin. The Kiser name was reported by a grandson on her death certificate. I do not know where Abner is buried. My guess is that he died in Kentucky and was buried there. I do not know where Rachel is buried. Possibly she is buried close to her father, but I do not know where that grave is located either. Many Morrisons are buried at Mount Zion Baptist Church north of Cherryville, and there are many older graves there which no longer have markers or stones.

The only proven line for Abner and Rachel is that of Tom and Susie, the other children are speculative lines, guesses, based upon analysis of the census records. I am not aware of any family bible records which could help straighten out this family line -- no tradition about Tom's connections and relatives came down in the line through Alexander Morrison.
