Nancy Jane Berkshire / Barkshire is my 3rd great grandmother. Her daughter, Emily Hunter Simms married back (?) into the Morris family in 1872 when she married James Byard Morris in Clifton, Illinois.
Any information about Tiberius and Hannah would be much appreciated. Currently, I have seen one tree which shows that Tiberius had three children - Montgomery M., Nancy Jane and Emily. Nancy Jane married William Hunter and had 8 children. I have their information from Nancy Jane Hunter's family bible as transcribed by my g grandmother (Sarah) Isabelle Morris Carter.
Can anyone confirm / contradict this info? Thanks -- Jim W (firstname.lastname@example.org
