Hello, I am having a brick wall with my great-great grandmother Eliza Morrison who lived in the Ozan, Hempstead, Arkansas area. Base on my grandmother's death certificate, it states that Carrie Bush (father/mother) Wash Langford and Eliza Morrison. So far, I haven't located the Morrison's children on the 1870 census. Their father is listed as Harry Morrison who appears with children and wife named Amanda on 1880 census. I have looked at several of the children's death notices indicating their mother/father as Amanda and Harry. Also, Eliza Morrison married Wash Langford 1888 living in the Hempstead, Ark area on the 1900 census. 1910 Census, he is married to Florida Jordan. Eliza Morrison on the 1920 listed Paris Morrison listed as her son and another child 1930 census as her grandchild Ernest Maxwell. If someone can help me to locate the family on the 1870s census, please email me at Thanks.
