John Morris and Ann House were married by justice of the peace, Robert Nelles in Clinton Township Lincoln County Ontario in 1823 They lived there until they recieved land in the newly opened Erin Township abt 1825. Ann is thought to be related to one of the lines of the loyalist House families living in Lincoln County although there is no direct evidence. George Morris, presumed to be John's brother also lived in the area of Clinton Township and married Hulda House the daughter of Philip House, UE. John and Ann had at least 3 children, George born about 1826, Susan born abt 1828 and your ancestor John born 1836. Susan married George Nelson Cole, a blacksmith from Grimsby Township who may have been apprenticed to her uncle George Morris. Both John and George appear to be born in Niagara Twp. and may be sons of George Morris and Isabella Wigton who lived in Clinton during the war of 1812 and came into the country from Pennsylvania.
