I am looking for information on William Morrison (b. 1 Jan 1795, Burke Co -- d. 20 Sept.1865 in Macon Co) and his wife Susannah Queen (b. 1799/1800, Rutherford Co -- d.?) They were married before 1828 in Burke Co, NC. They had 7 children: John H.; William; Alfred; Elizabeth; Joseph; Mary; and Lucy A.

Daughter Elizabeth Morrsion (b. 23 Oct 1835, Macon Co -- d. 26 Apr 1924, Swain Co) married Henry Burnett Grant (b. 1836, Macon Co -- d. 1882, Graham Co). They were married 12 Aug 1857 in Macon County.

Any information would be helpful. Thank you.

William Morrison

Surnames: Morrison,
The William Morrison you asked about did marry Susannah Queen, however, she was his second wife. His first wife was
Cynthia Black of Mecklenburg County, daughter of William Black. She was the mother of all his children and died in 1843. William subsequently married Susannah Queen, apparently in the same year. He was born in 1794 in Burke Co., NC and moved to Macon County, NC in 1832. His home, of
poplar logs, two story, is still standing, and in the hands of the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee. He was my ggreat,great-grandfather. His wife, Cynthia, drove a surrey from Burke County to Macon County with her first three children,John, William, and Alfred riding along. as well as a black woman, Minnie, who had been with her all her life. The little boy, William, born 1828, was my great-grandfather. I have birth dates, marriage partners, marriage dates, death dates, and in several cases, all their children's names, dates, etc. The name of his first wife is absolutely correct, I have a letter from his grandson giving me that information.
