I came across your message today and was intrigued that we have kin in the same areas. I have been trying to prove that my 2nd great grandfather... is tied to the Jonathan Morris/Nancy Loftin that were both born in Georgia. For years all of the family had Jonathan as Burrell's father based on a letter from the several times great granddaughter of Burrell. She is elderly now but remembers being told by her family of who Burrell's father was. Sadly that is not proof to the descendents of Jonathan Morris who say that Burrell is not his son. When you said your Ivey Morris married in Laurens Georgia, it says to me that he and Jonathan are likely kin. I have Jonathan's family in NC but can not connect my Burrell to him with any documentation other than Burrell being born in Georgia and owning land next door to Jonathan in Alabama.
I would appreciate any information you could share with us Morris kin that are searching for an answer. Thank you so much, Gloria
Burrell "Burl" A. Morris
Your 2nd great grandfather
