My great grandmother was Julia Ancira Morton,
daughter of George Weston Morton and
Guadalupe Ancira of Sabinas, Hidalgo, Mexico.
Evidently, this was a second marriage for George
They lived during the early 1900s in Mexico
and had 12 children:
Jose F, Carlos, Luis, Jorge, Enrique, Lupe,
Maria, Carlota, Anita, and my g-grandmother,
I understand that George Weston Morton was the
Levi Parsons Morton, born in Vermont, I believe.
I would love to hear from anyone who knows
anything about George Weston Morton. Thanks!
Please email me at Liz

I have recently begun
the long journey of researching my family's
I was told by my father that the family tree has
tracked back to John Morton of Pennsylvania,
signer of the Declaration of Independence.
However, this information was lost in a fire
several years ago.
I am specifically interested in the possible
connection to the Comanche Nation.
In your research, have you heard of any Morton's
with Comanche blood?

Poster failed to leave name.
I had a great grandfather named Jesse Morton
he was born in Brooklyn, N.Y.
My grandmother was Estelle Morton
also born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on April 12, 1892.
She had a brother, Jesse who was shot and killed
in New York in the 1930's.
How can I find out what happened to him?
Thanks a lot.

I know very little about my great-grandfather,
John W. Morton. My
grandfather dictated a tape of some family
history 23 years ago at my
wedding--(I interviewed him, but I didn't
remember it. Guess I had other
things on my mind!) Anyhow, it recently
surfaced--this is all I know about
John W. was born in Tennessee, probably about
1875. His family subsequently
moved to Texas. He married in Dallas December 25,
1896 (Carrie Bodine) I
believe he is the telegrapher listed in the 1896
Dallas City Directory. He
had two brothers, Walter (married to an Alice)
and Muncie (sp?). They also
lived in Texas. Their father was a Captain in the
Civil War in Tennessee-- it
sounds like granddaddy said he was known as
"Captain White"--so I don't
really understand that.
John apparently had a decent education for the
time, and was employed first
as a telegrapher and than as a bookeeper. My aunt
believes that his family
"disowned" him because he married a
penniless orphan (my ggm). He died in
1903 in Kansas City, MO of typhoid after a
"great flood." Does any of this
info sound familiar?
Thank you for your help.
