Morris Families, early 1800s

There are at least three Morris families in Ross County in the early 1800s who I suspect may be related, and am trying to figure out how.

Frisby Morris (b. 1783), Mahlon Morris (b.1790), and Carvill Morris (b. 1805)all begin showing up in Ross County around 1820 and 1830. Frisby and Mahlon were both married in Frederick County, VA just before they came to Ross County. Carvill was living with Mahlon in the 1860 census. Carvill's census records state that he was born in either Virginia or Maryland.

In addition, there is a Samuel Morris and his wife Rebecca McDonald Morris, who I understand lived in Ross County in the early 1800s before moving on to Michigan. This couple also came from Frederick County, VA. I wonder if he may also be connected because both Mahlon and Frisby had sons named Samuel.

Would love to hear from anyone else researching these families.
