I have been away from the MORRIS family for over a year and a half and am now trying to sort out some puzzles: involving a MORRIS family of Greene Co., PA, esp. that of Robert Morris, grandson of Lewis of Passage Point Morris of NJ:
Robert Morris (b. 1735, Monmouth Co., NJ; d. 1829, Greene Co., PA) m. twice: Elizabeth Ellison may have been his first wife, but was apparently the mother of all his children (b. bet 1738-1741; m. 1762 in NJ according to Stillwell). The other wife was Sarah Rinehart (b. abt 1760 in Greene Co., PA; m. abt 1779). Robert and Elizabeth had 5 or 6 children and were living in Greene Co., PA or Noble Co., OH
2. Mary; m. ?? Stillwell;
3. John Franklin (b. 1763), m. Rebecca ??;
4. Nancy or Sarah Ann (b. abt 1775), m. William Stiles
5. Benjamin (b. 1775), m. Sarah Strawn
6. Henry (b. 1783). m. Edie Hickman
QUESTION: Can anyone suggest dates for Isaac or Mary (and a first name for Maryís husband)?
QUESTION: Can anyone suggest a last name for Rebecca, the wife of John Franklin?
Some sources suggest that Sarah Rinehart was actually Robertís first wife and bore no children which would raise questions about the birth date given above. Can anyone suggest sources for finding out who married whom first?
On the other hand, IF Robert and Sarah were married in about 1779, then Henry most probably could NOT be the son of Robert and Elizabeth.
