I am looking for members of my maternal
Grandmother's family who are in Ireland.
My Grandmother was Florence Celia Morton, born in
County Kilkenny, Ireland, on 14 May 1902.
Florence was one of 14 children, only 7 of which
survived. Florence left Ireland in 1923
and came to New Zealand, where she married my
Grandfather, a Charles Vollmer,
and gave birth to my mother, Ruth Vollmer.
Florence's father was James Morton, and of those
7 children that survived,
Florence had brothers named Vincent and James.
James Morton came to New Zealand,
married Joyce and had a daughter, Catherine
We believe Vincent stayed in Ireland. I am
looking for any descendants in Kilkenny, Ireland.
James snr (my great-grandfather) was born in
Ulster, Northern Ireland,
but lived in Co. Cork and later Co. Kilkenny.
If you have any information at all please feel
free to email me.

I am trying to research a Morton family from
I have little proof but indications that there
was a John H.B. Morton, b. 1899,
Samuel, b. 1800, Arabella, b. 1807, George Hiram,
b. 1810, and Herny E., b. 1812 as siblings.
The census records all say these people were born
I am trying to establish them as a family and
find out who the parents were.
Samuel, George H., and Arabella are all found in
Daviess County, KY by 1840s and 1850s.
Henry E. Morton is living in Calvert Co., MD in
1852 and John H.B. Morton is living in New
Orleans in 1852
according to a land transaction in Daviess Co.,
KY in 1852.
Samuel Morton is agent for the Henry E. Morton of
George H. Morton, the widow of Samuel Morton, and
the widow of John H.B. Morton
are all found in Izard Co., AR in 1860 census.
Only Samuel Morton's widow is found there by 1870
Records have been found to show that George H.,
and John H.B.
are probably deceased before 1860. George H. was
a justice of the peace in Izard County, AR.
John H.B. is found on the slave schedules of that
county in 1857
but not listed on 1860 census where his widow,
Ann, is found.
The marriage record for Arabella Morton of
Daviess county Ky states that
she was born in St Charles County, MD. I have
been informed that there was
never such a county. There is a Charles County
but I have not been able
to find a Morton family there in late 1790s or
when these people were all born. I did find a
Henry E. Morton in Calvert Caounty, MD
48 years old and with a wife Mary and those were
the names on the
land deed in KY so I think they are the same
I believe that Samuel Morton married Mary A.
Smith in MD before they moved to KY.
This family is found on the 1840 Daviess Co., KY
census. I believed he died in KY
and his widow moved to AR where his brothers and
her oldest's son, Thomas Morton, were living.
She is buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery with her
son Samuel A. Morton, his wife, and daughter.
Thomas Morton is believed to be buried in the
Historis Wolf.Adams/Herron Cemetery
near Norfork, AR. No burial record for George H.
John H.B. Morton married Ann Fourniquet of New
they had a daughter Rebecca born there in 1838.
She died in Izard Co., Ar
and her tombstone has been preserved and moved to
the grounds of the
Historic Wolf House of Norfork, AR. No death data
for either he or his widow exist.
There is a marriage record of Mary A. Morton
daughter of Samuel and Mary A. Morton of
Daviess Co., KY to a Barna May. They had two
children and she died in 1856 when the
children were very young. Arabella Morton Field
was a guest at the wedding and
the record stated the wedding was held at the
home of the bride, a Mrs. Mary Morton.
Thus, I believe that Mr. Morton must have been
deceased at that time
or he would have been mentioned.
Any help I could get in trying to establish the
connections of these people
would be greatly appreciated. Please reply to

In my search for the ancestors of Fredrick Alvin
born in Iowa around 1860 I believe I have
narrowed it down a little.
In the 1920 census he recorded that his father
was born in Maine.
I found at least two Mortons in Phillips county
that came there from Maine. One is a Zalmon H.
Morton the other Alvin.
I theorize this Alvin was Fredrick's father.
There also seems to be a Wisconsin connection
with the Weeks line.
Does any of this trigger some connections from
Incidentally, Fredrick also recorded his mother's
birth as Pennsylvania.
His mother was Juletta Weeks and his wife was
Maggie Davis (Margaret Rozella Davis).

A week ago, I visited my cousin in Oregon and we
looked over the family
bible and found a picture of Levi P. Morton and
The picture was taken by a Cleveland Ohio
was a glossy type photo. Mrs. Morton looks
exactly like myself
and my grandfather, Howard Payne. Could you help
in finding if she was a Metz, Payne or A Sage.
I know she is our ancestor, but do not know her
There must have been a reason for this to be in
our family bible.
The picture looked to be taken before the turn of
the century and
Mrs. Morton is indeed beautiful in the picture.
Her profile is exactly like mine.
We are related to John Howard Payne who wrote
"Home Sweet Home" and
my grandfather was named after him.
The bible records were kept by Mahala Dille
whom I was able to locate thru the Dille Family
on the net.
You kind indulgence will be greatly appreciated.

My ggrandfather was Harry Walden Morton born
2/26/1867 and died 4/9/1953.
His father was Richard Henry Morton who was
married to Harriet Elizabeth Walden.
Harriet died young and Richard Henry left western
for presumably western Tennessee and had two more
I am stuck with Richard Henry.
I cannot find verifiable record of him though
there have been
two references and suggestions that his father
may have been John Hamilton Morton.
I would certainly appreciate any assistance or
information you might have.

My name is Drew Morton.. My Grand father was John
born in 1887 in Michigan, died in 1975. His
Father was John W. Morton.
John W's wife was Etta. My grandfather had
and step siblings, Tom and Hatty among others.
My grand fathers Uncle (my great great uncle) was
and again lived in Michigan, Mason County. His
wife I believe was Maryette,
and he also had relatives named Paul, and Dwight.
They had a half brother named Alen Hall.
If you trace it back far enough, it goes to
Scotland, to the Douglas Clan,
around the time of King James I of England.
