In Reply to: Elijah/Elizah MORRIS and Elisabeth PATTON by William Muller of 1583

More on the family of Elijah Morris and Elisabeth Patton: Seeking information on the family of Caleb PATTON (1815-??) and his wife, Orpha ?? (1811-??). With eleven children, the family is listed in Whiteley Twp., Greene Co., PA in the 1850 census with the name spelled as PATTEN. In 1860, Caleb and his wife and two children have moved to Fairbury, Livingston Co., IL which Caleb helped to layout and develop. In the 1870 census, Caleb's surname is spelled PATTON.

Of particular interest is his oldest daughter, Phebe, b. in 1831 in PA according to the 1850 census. Did Phebe change her name to Elisabeth and marry Elijah/Elhanan/Elhan MORRIS sometime in the 1850s and then move to Livingston Co., IL? The spelling of Elijah's name varies with the census. In 1850 it is Elijah. In 1860, it is Elhan. In 1870 and 1880 and his wife's obit., it is Elhanan.

Elijah/Elhanan MORRIS is the son of Peter Morris and Elizabeth Renner in Greene Co., PA. Peter and Elijah are distant cousins of my wife.

Willing to exchange information.

Bill Muller
married to a Morris
