Lydia ETTER and Enoch Canada MORRIS
Posted by: Fred Schouten (ID *****2956) Date: December 09, 2002 at 08:05:32
  of 74

I am desperately seeking information on my great-grandfather, Enoch Canada Morris. He was born 15 May 1830 in Browns Valley, IN. He died 11 Oct 1920 in Windsor, Shelby Co., IL. On 27 Oct 1855, in Greencastle, IN, he married Lydia Etter (b. 5 Sep 1833 in Putnam Co., IN; d. 1 Oct 1916 in Windsor, Shelby Co., IL).

They had 9 children:
Anna Rebecca Morris (1856-1938)
David Henry Morris (1859-1939)
Hezekiah Dolphus Morris (1861- )
John Will Morris (1864-1956)
Joseph Simpson Morris (1867-1901)
Melissa Catherine Morris (1869-1893)
Frederic Nelson Morris (1871-1899)
Violet Elizabeth Morris (1874-1965)
Milford Manford Morris (1878-1901)

I have a lot of information on these people and their children that I will gladly share with anyone who wishes to have it.

My "brick wall" is that I cannot find any information on the parents or grandparents of Enoch Canada Morris. I would appreciate anyone who could provide some light on this lineage. The only thing I have found is in the extensive Peffley family genealogy. Lydia Etter came from the Pefley family (her father, Michael, was the son of a Pefley mother). In their writings, they state that Enoch Canada Morris was the great-grandson of Robert Morris, signer of the Declaration of Independence. I have contacted a couple of members of the Pefley family, but cannot find their source for this information.

Thanks,
Fred Schouten
