Hello. I saw your post on genforum - I hope your email is still active....

I have very little as far as records go. She was born in Kanawha County and lived in St. Albans, Kanawha County, VA (now it's Tornado, Lincoln County, WV). I have a picture of the home she shared with Washington Floyd Morris. He was a farmer and tax assessor for Kanawha County. They were married on November 17, 1847 in Kanawha County. I only have 7 children listed for them; none named Eugene. If you could provide info on Eugene and the other child I would greatly appreciate it..... Here's what I have....
