These two drew the last pension of their mother, Mary Morrow...And by
the 1790 Census we know that 2 boys under age of 16 were in the home of
this Mrs. Mary Morrow, as well as two girls and these girls evidently
did not marry, unless to men by name of Morrow for both used Morrow

End of S.C. Will Abstracts.
53 From Miss Nora Davis¹ Marriage list of the Rev. Moses Waddel, a

Presbyterian minister of Abbecille Co. S.C. and of Clark Co. Ga.
John Morrow 24 Oct. 1810 to Jane Spence
Sarah Morrow 21 Nov. 1832 to John B(axter) Bull
Some out of state data I happen to have in my files.
Mecklenburg County, N.C. has many Morrows and Morrahs.
Augusta County, Virginia has Morrows and Morrahs.
Lancaster County, Pa. has some Morrows and Morrahs
Recall that the migration from Ireland to Lancaster Co. Pa. and from
there to Augusta Co. Va. and from there to Mecklenburg Co. N.C., The
Waxha and Long Cane settlements in S.C. as well as into York, Chester
and Spartanburg Counties in S.C. of many of the early S.C.
Families...The Morrows may have followed this name migration I.E. the
S.C. Morrows.
This concludes the preliminary study of Morrows as found in the S.C.
State Archives and as I said in the beginning, this data will have to be
supplemented with data secured from the various county seats in S.C.
plus Family date, Family Bibles, Church data and tombstones.
The End
** This info came from an old email I had saved from Bill in Alaska.
I don't know if he is still participating in the Morrow list, but I thank
him for this info.
