Subject: [MORTON] Thomas MORTON son of John Morton and Sarah Hawkins
Date: Sun, 3 Aug 2003 21:13:03 -0700


I need some help to correct conflicting information that I have received
about the family of THOMAS MORTON, born 25 Sept 1764 and died 1838.

One source gives him as the husband of Sarah Ann Moore and born in Richmond,
VA and died Monroe County, MO. with children: Benjamin Hawkins b. abt 1800
m. Eliza Carrack; Robert Morton m. Lydia in Franklin Co., KY; Joshua Taylor;
George Lunceford; Nancy m. James Dickson/Dixon; Lucy m. Benjamin
Mothershead; Hannah m. Reavis; and Joseph.

Other source shows:
Thomas Morton married Elizabeth Davis 25 Sep 1791, daughter of Richard and
Nancy Chiles Davis, born 14 Sep 1776 in Richmond, VA. He was born 24 Sep
1764 in Richmond, VA and died 8 May 1844 in Hopkins Co., KY. Children:
William C. Morton b. 9 Sep 1792, Clark Co., KY; Samuel b. 9 May 1794;
Richard b. 10 May 1796; Nancy Moore b. 2o Dec 1800 m. James Ligon Davis;
Pricilla D. b. 24 Dec 1803; Thomas, Jr. b. 23 Dec 1805; George Washington b.
11 Nov 1807; Addison b. 11 Jun 1811; Henry H. b. 4 Mar 1813 m. Julia A.
Littlepage; Oliver Perry b. 6 Jul 1815; Joseph D. b. 21 Dec 1817; and
Elizabeth H. b. 25 Feb 1820, Morton's Gap, KY, married William Rash.
Have a long list of descendants of this family in the file.

Would appreciate any help in correcting the above.
