I am wondering if Frances Morton belongs to this
info. would be GREATLY Appreciated.
Cherokee ancestry has been established and
verified through the
Cherokee Roll #'s for many years. However, the
is still very sketchy.
My grandfather was Noah Hamilton Morton born on
July 20, 1876 in the
Goingsnake Dist. in the Cherokee Nation, IT. He
Lilly Nancy Smith born in 1886. To date, I have
no further information on her.
In 1906 their residence and post office was in
Cherokee Nation in the Indian Territory. At that
time Noah had 1 daughter
Bessie A. Morton born 1/ 17/1902 and 2 sons
Sterling Morton born
8/15/1903 and Willie (Bill) Morton born 4/13/1906.
They later had 7 more children;
Walter, Vernal, Fred, Edith, Jessie, Ather Helms
(Ace) my father and Mildred
making a total of 3 daughters and 7 sons.
Noah's father (my great-grandfather) was Aaron (Buck)
Morton. Born in the
Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, date of death
is known only as 1885. He married Early Mackey
born in White County,
North Carolina date of birth unknown, year of
Early's parents were Nelson and Lizzie Sego and
from all indications they
were born in Tennessee.
Sharon (Morton) Wallace
husbands family is Morton. His father is Lage
grandfather is John Morton. His great-grandfather
is Samuel Morton who married
a Mary Ann Moton. Her brothers sometimes went by
Moton and sometimes Morton.
You might e-mail my husband and he could dig out
his genealogy on this family.
I know he would love any information on Samuel if
he could get it.
Samuel Morton was born in Missouri and I think
his father was also a Samuel.
On the Mary Moton, I am not sure but I think her
mother was a Langley.

my last post I have checked some of the Morton
family history I know about.
My family has been able to go back to the 1750's
to South Carolina.
Our history in the 1750's starts with Marshall
Morton, whose son James Morton
was born about 1790 also in South Carolina. James
Morton's son John was born in
Alabama about 1821.
My grandfather, Drury Morton was John's son, and
was born in Alabama in 1852.
My father, James P. Morton was born in Texas in
1884. I know Marshall had
more children than James and James had more
children than John.
I have a cousing who has done a lot of research
on these other Morton lines

I have come across the spelling of the name
Morton where the letter "r "was dropped.
I have been told that some dialects of Cherokee
did not use the letter "r". So, when
the census takers spelled the names they often
spelled them phonetically.
This resulted in the letter "r" being

If you need any of the information
my cousin has assembled let me know, as she has
published a book on the
Marshall Morton line.
