BLACK
My maternal grandmother was Lottie Black (Orsburn). Her father William J. Black moved the family from Morgan County to White County Arkansas in 1885 when my grandmother was 8. William J. Black (Born 29 March 1856 Died 23 March 1923) and Elizabeth Rutledge (Born 3 January 1860) were married on 10 March 1875 in Morgan County. Both of them were born in Alabama. I got Williams death certificate and it says his father's name was John and John was born in Alabama. There was no information about his mother. I found a John Black in the 1870 Monroe County census. He had a son named William which is the age that my William would have been but I need to find more information before I am sure that I have the right John Black.

WASHBURN
Researching the Washburns of Morgan County, Alabama, particularly the family of John Anderson (1856-1940) and Katie Louise Shirley Washburn (1857-1940). Their children were Frances L., William Lewis, James Spencer, Margaret "Maggie", John Minor, and Pliny Frank. I would like to hear from descendants of this family. In "The Heritage of Morgan County, Alabama" there is a photo of Maggie Washburn and her husband Walter Lamon. I would love to have a copy of this photo, and/or any other photos of this John and Katie's family. Katie Louise was the daughter of Aaron Frank Shirley, who was killed in the Civil War, and later, the step-daughter of my great-grandfather, William Bellew of Blount County, Alabama.

WIDNER/WIDENER/WIEDNER
I need Birth, Marriage, Death and Burial Places for the following people from Morgan County: Any marriages for Nancy Jane Widner/Widener/Wiedner - possibly to a cousin or person with the same name of Widner - would be around 1870-1875. She later married a James Hight (or Hightower) Peek in later years. Birth of Nancy Jane's daughter/daughters: Possibly, Sarah Jane Widner. Sarah Jane could be Nancy Jane's much younger half-sister - about 1868-1872 Donnie/Donie/Doshie/Dossie/Caldonia/Caldocia Widner - May 1873 Any marriages of these daughters: Sarah Jane may have married a Williams. Donnie ... Caldonia was listed as a widow on the 1900 US Census for Morgan County, by the name of Watts. Also, any children that these two may have had. I know Donnie/Caldonia had at least 2 daughters, but the census said that she had given birth to 5 children with 2 living. If available, I also need the burial place of all of these people. I know I'm asking a lot. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Marv Williams

FISHER/DANIEL
Marvin Williams and I am related to the Daniel line out of Morgan Co, Alabama. My mother's mother was born in Morgan Co., Ida Grace Daniel. Ida's father was Henry Daniel who married Mamie Grace Fisher. I would like Henry Daniel and Mamie Fisher listed on your site with my E-mail address. IAt this point and time, I do not know who Henry's parents were, all I know is that Henry Daniel was born August 13, 1873 in Decatur, Morgan Co, Alabama. All of his children, with the exception one, were born in Decatur, Morgan, Alabama. Henry Daniel died, July 19, 1954 in San Diego Co, California, at the age of 80. Mamie Fisher's father, George Albert Fisher, born 15 Sept 1864 in Nova Scotia, Canada, moved to Decatur, Morgan Co from Michigan about 1887. George Albert Fisher died May 4, 1908 in Decatur, Morgan County, Alabama and is buried in the Decatur cemetery. Seven of George Fisher's 13 children were born in Decatur, Morgan Co. Alabama. I highly suspect that Henry Daniel's father was S. Jefferson Daniel, who according to the 1880 Census was living in Township 6, beat 2, page 81A, Morgan, Alabama with his wife Matilda, son Henry and daughter Lucy. However, I have yet to find anything to substantiate it, other than the fact that Henry and Mamie married and lived in the area, and just happened to name their first child, George (Mamie's father's name) Jefferson(possibly after S. Jefferson Daniel) Daniel. If anyone might be able to help me find who Henry's father was, I would appreciate it, or at least point me in the right direction of someone.

WASHBURN
I am interested in hearing from anyone who is researching the Morgan County Washburns. Of particular interest is John A. Washburn and wife Louisa, who appear in the 1910 Morgan County (Lanes) census records. Family members include children, William, Maggie, Minor and Pliny. Who were Louisa's parents, and when and where were John and Louisa married? Also, where is the Basham Cemetery located? I believe there are Washburns buried there.



Judy Johnson June 03, 2005

JOHNSON/HANKINS
I am a long time JOHNSON researcher. As one can imagine, it is a difficult name to track. However, I do have at least one Morgan Co. connection. Canaday JOHNSON (listed as Kennedy in the record) married Lodicia (listed as Dice in the record) HANKINS on 10 Mar 1832, Morgan Co. (Morgan Co. records: Vol 32, pg. 21, Marriage Book A, pg. 206. I know Lodicia had a brother named George HANKINS, and she went to Morgan Co. with that brother after the death of her father. Canaday & Lodicia migrated to MO @ 1850. What I am interested in are the following JOHNSON men: Henry JOHNSON, received a land grant in Morgan Co. 15 Aug 1831: William JOHNSON, received a land grant in Morgan Co. 12 Aug 1833: and William JOHNSON, received a land grant in Morgan Co. 16 Oct 1835. Might there be any info on these men and/or do you know of anybody doing research on them? My JOHNSON ancestor (given name unknown) migrated to NE AL between 1820-1835. There were numerous male children, so I am seeking to find out more about those that left some sort of a record, and that were in NE AL in that time frame.Do you have any ideas that might shed some light on my problem?

LAMBERT/CRISCOE
Over the last 25 years my Dad has been finding links to his family tree. He was born to Fannie Edwards Lambert in Morgan County, AL. He was taken from her by the county and lived in an orphanage and was adopted at age 2 years. He was located by his half brothers and sisters some 30 years later and has found bits and pieces of his past over the last 20 years. At my request, my Dad sent for his sealed adoption papers and they arrived today. His father was listed as "allegedly, Boss Criscoe" of Morgan County. We had never been told that by anyone in the family. I am curious if anyone might know anything about this information. Since "allegedly" is how the name is listed, I pray this information would never hurt anyone.

BADGE/PIRIE/THORNTON
My great grandparents, James Stuart Pirie and Elizabeth "Bessie" Badge were married in Morgan County in April 1895. My grandmother Margaret Pirie and her sister Miriam were born in Morgan County in Aug 1896 and Apr 1899, respectively. Also had brothers James and Frank, but don't when or where they were born. I have a date of death of James Stuart Pirie of 6 Dec 1938, but don't know where. Bessie died in 1955 and is buried in Henderson, NC. James Stuart was born in Canada and Bessie was born in Wales. Bessie's parents, William Praed Badge and Margaret (Mary?) Cole were married in Wales. William was living in Morgan County with daughter and son-in-law Edith and John Thornton when he died in 1910. Edith and John were both born in Tennessee. If anyone has additional info on any of these ancestors, I'd love to share notes.

BAKER/SIMONS/BURGESS
Social Security has a Wylie F. Baker born 18 April 1877 in Decatur, AL Father's name "General Baker" Mother: "Mary Simons" We haven't been able to locate data on any of these before 1910 (Wylie was then in SE Missouri), at which time Wylie claimed to be 23, and not 33, so the true year of birth might have been 1887?. Other family members included a Lance Baker, and a half brother (son of Mary from an earlier marriage?) named Perry Frank Burgess. General Baker could have been a General Gene Baker. Mary Simons could have been Mary Jane Simons, both from recollections of Wylie's daughter, now 91 years old. Any assistance on these names would be appreciated. Mary Jane Simons is probably my great grandmother.

HENRY
My great grandmothers family lived in Morgan Co. between the 1860's and 1900. Her name was Lillie M. Henry born 1 May 1870. I found her in the 1870 Morgan Co. census with her parents Jacob Henry and Mary E.They must have died because I can not find tham again, so they would be buried in Morgan Co.. In 1880, the now 3 children are listed living with Mary (Hoxter) Ludwig, M. Henry, female, 10 years old, John, 8, and Jacob,6, as her niece and nephews. Mary Ludwig was married to Fredrick Ludwig. Also living with her is her sister Andy C. Hoxter aged 19. I know this is the right family because in 1900 Lillie Delaney, my gr grandmother is listed living in Morgan Co. with her children Tommie, my grandfather, Arthur, and Mallie. There is a D. P. Hoxter that is listed as a boarder living there also. I think he is a uncle or a cousin. SO I am looking for any information on these three families, Jacob and Mary Henry, the Hoxters and the Ludwigs. I believe that Mary Henry is a Hoxter. All three families lived in Morgan Co. Thanks for any help.

CHAMBLEE/MOON
My grandmother MARY KATHERINE (MOON) CHAMBLEE. She was born 16 August 1908 on a small Houseboat on the Tn. River in Decatur,Ala. Her father was Joseph (Joe) Moon. Not sure on a name of mother. We think her maiden name was Mitchell .Do not have a given name. She had been married before to a Batey. Had a son named William (Billy) Batey. My grandmother also had a sister named Alma Moon that was 3 when Mary was born. The mother died when Mary was 3 months old. All the children were given away to other people to raise. They were given to people across Sand Mountain and DeKalb Co. But the birth was in Morgan Co Decatur, Alabama. I am searching for the name of this mother. That was married to Joe MOON. Some where around 1900 to 1908. This is just a guess on time frame going by the birth dates of children. Billy the half brother was born in ABT 1897-8 and Alma was born in 1905. Mary born 1908. The children never say their father again. We know little about these people. If any one has any Information please email me. Thanks in Advance

Rebecca Moss@aol.com July 27, 2004

Morrow CemeteryWould appreciate any information on the connections of the different families buried at Morrow Cemetery. Have wondered if they intermarried with Robert and Jane Peden Morton Morrow's children. Also does anyone know how to get the information the Dripping Springs DAR had when they placed the DAR markers on Robert and Jane's graves? Does anyone know if Robert and Jane had stones before the DAR memorials? Is the DAR Chapter still active? Do people know of the terrible vandalization done to this beautiful little cemetery? I ask for a lot I know, but would be happy to have any information on these folks that one would be willing to share. We visited there and got the cemetery on video. We showed the video at the annual SC Peden Reunion a couple of weeks ago. People were so excited. No one had ever been there or knew about it. Jane was the daughter of John and Margaret McDill Peden from Greenville Co, SC, originally from County Antrim, Ireland. Hardly anyone has ever visited the SC reunion (first was held in 1899) from Jane's family (House of Jane). We are hoping to change that! Would be thankful to hear from anyone that is interested in this family!
