  • Notes 
    • According to family tradition, Mister Morrison was a young unmarried, Irish Protestant who became enamored of a young, unmarried Irish Catholic lady.  Her father, an ardent Catholic, opposed the marriage, and the young couple ran away, were married, and embarked for America.  Mister Morrison died on the way and his young widow reached Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a destitute condition.
