Arch Morrison & Dorcas Kerby, Riley & Preston Kerby
Posted by: Charles Morrison (ID *****4947) Date: August 04, 2005 at 18:20:37
  of 589

My ggrandfather, Archibald Morrison and Riley Kerby signed a marriage bond on July 16, 1831 for marriage of Archibald Morrison and Dorcas Kerby. They appear in the census of 1840 with their four children; Hosea, Riley, Magdalene and George (my grandfather). Archibald died in 1842. By the census of 1850 Dorcas is named as head of household, and the four children are still with her, along with Preston Kerby, age 12. Does anyone know of this Preston Kerby? I don't know the relationship of Preston or Riley to Dorcas. Any help will be appreciated.
