About Frances Morton, I can say the following: Granderson Wrenn was listed incorrectly in the Census of 1840 as Granderson Warren. I can find no history of a Granderson Warren. This person inventoried was listed as being between the ages of 20 and 30, with one female child under 10; and wife between the ages of 20 and 30. Granderson and his family were innumerated next door to Tarleton Morton, his wife, Elizabeth Munday, and family. I would assume that this family was related to Granderson's wife, Frances Morton.
At this moment in time (2006) I am listing Granderson as a son of James Wrenn and his wife, Mary Hamlin. There is that possibility that Granderson was a child of William Wrenn and his first wife, Nancy Mann, but some descendants of William state that William was the father of a John William Wrenn whom they give as having been born ca 1810, which is also the birth year of Granderson. It is possible that two children could be born of the same parents within the same given year, and not be twins, so there are at least two ways to account for the birth years. Granderson did name his eldest, and I suppose his only son, William D. Wrenn. The William Wrenn who married Nancy Mann, has very strong possibilities of being the same William Wrenn found in the census of 1850 who gave his birthplace as Person County, NC, although his actual birth year indicated by the census would have been in Caswell County before Person was set off from it. There was a William Wrenn who married a Frances Watson in 1817 according to Person County marriage records. This could have been the same William Wrenn who married Nancy Mann in 1809, according to the same marriage records.
I hope this provides some food for thought with your family lineage.
Winston Salem, NC
