I am looking for information regarding the birth and parents of John D. Norris, born in Huntingdon County, PA on March 15, 1819.
I believe, but cannot prove, that he may have been the son of William Norris, b. 1781 in MD, who was the son of John D Norris (b. 3/16/1754, married to Ann, d. 11/1/1838). William married Mary Hornoc in 1805 and moved to Wayne Co., OH (now part of Ashland Co.) in 1823. In an 1880 biography William is listed as having 12 children (only 5 of whom were still alive at the time of the writing). William would have been the grandson of Joseph Norris, Sr. (married to Mary Moody). William and John ended up in the same area of Ohio after 1823, but I have yet to prove John D. Norris (b. 1819) is William's son.
