My great great grandfather Thomas Morris lived in Lincoln County, Kentucky before it became a state. It may have been part of Casey county then. He married Nancy Jane Goode in Lincoln County in 1844. I do not know the names of Thomas's brothers or sisters. I had heard that his father was John and the family came from Virginia. I don't know much beyond John, except that the family was connected to the Robert E. Lee family. The Morris family in Kentucky was divided during the Civil War. My great grandfather, John, moved to Missouri because of his support for the Union. Later, in 1886 he moved to California and settled in Ferndale. Later, he moved to El Cerrito where he owned a grocery store. I was wondering if the John Morris from Virginia would be the father of Thomas? Do you know the father of John? I am trying to trace my ancestry back further. My grandfather was Walter Robert Morris, and his sons were John Walter and Robert Lee who was my father.
