On pages 55 & 56 of a book,"When the Past Refused to Die- A History of Caswell County North Carolina 1777-1977", by William S. Powell there is a list of over 300 men who signed a petition in 1771. This document was directed to Governor Tyron and requested the formation of Caswell County from Orange County NC. Of the signers four were Morrows named Benjamin, John, Thos, and William. I would be grateful for any information on these men or their ancestors or descendants. I will share my information. Caswell County was not created until 1777.

Also, I have found a Will and an administrative whatever you call it when the executor has finished his job from Ripley Co, MO. I have transcribed both, but they are long and there name value is very low. If you want complete copies I can send them by e-mail privately.
Will of JOHN C. SMART In Summary, this Will recorded July 15, 1861, sets forth from JOHN C. SMART's estate, should he die in the Cicil War, to the children of SARAH SMART (formely widow SARAH MORROW) children being JOHN MORROW and ESTER CATHERINE MORROW an amount in cash equal to the value of their portion of their fathers estate at the time JOHN C. SMART married their mother. Also within this will is the giving the power of attorney to JAMES W. MORROW of Butler Co., MO while JOHN C. SMART is at war. Also assigns JAMES W. MORROW Executor and Administrator of will should JOHN get killed in the Civil War.
Also mentions: SAMUEL H. THOMSON Justice of the Peace ISAAC B. TUBB clerk
On the "Administrator's Deed Public Sale" which looks to be the ELIAS BRANNUM Administrator of JAMES W. MORROW's Will. Book E page 329; July 16, 1868 JAMES W. MORROW deceased.
Also mentions: Town of Popular Bluff JAMES BRANNUM highest bidder on JAMES W.'s land A.B. TOMKIN appraiser STEVEN SCAGGS appraiser JAEL RUSHIN appraiser ISAAC B. TUBB clerk
In summary, it is not known who or how James W. Morrow connnects to my line- if at all. But James Brannum mentioned as highest bidder is believed to be my James Brannum - father of Lucinda Brannum (b. 1820 MO d. 1853 Conway Co., AR) who married my gg grandfather Jessie V. Morrow (b. 1814 Carolinas d. 1879 Douglas Co., MO). It is also felt that James W. Morrow in both documents are the same person.
If anything rings a bell, please get with me. I also have a GEDCOM if you want to look at my other lines to see if any of the other surnames might have migrated with your Morrows.

Sarah Morrow married 12 Feb 1788 in Greene Co, State of Franklin (= Tennessee) to Stephen Babb son of Philip Babb and Mary Perkins. They moved soon after their marriage to Buncombe Co. NC and later to Barren Co. KY.
Want to know Sarah's ancestry. There were land transactions of a William Morrow in Greene Co. and their was a William Morrow nearby in KY. Some have said Sarah was the daughter of William Morrow and Rachel Reed of NC, however William's Bible record lists no Sarah. Their son Hugh died in 1780 leaving a widow Sarah, but she remarried a Lee in Orange Co.
Another Morrow in Greene Co. TN was Adam Morrow who moved to Greene Co. before 1800, but his will does not name his daughters. Ted Stout, Mililani Town, Hawaii

JOHN J. MORROW, M.D.
Submitted by: Doug Leonard
It is unknown where this was printed If anyone knows, please let me know. My guess- Goodspeed's
The pioneer physician of Cotter is Dr. John J. Morrow, who has been a resident of this community since its earliest day. In a thorough preparatory course and later in postgraduate work he laid the foundation for the success and progress which he has attained as a practitioner of medicine and surgery and he is at all times keeping in touch with the advancement that is being made by those who are regarded as leaders in this field.
Dr. Morrow was born in McMinnville, Warren county, Tennessee, on the 27th of October, 1861, a son of Demosthenes G. and Mary J. (Kimberling) Morrow. He was a farmer and bank clerk and upon the outbreak of the Black Hawk war he offered his services and served throughout the uprising. The maternal grandfather, James Kimberling, was one of the early settlers in Missouri, locating near Ozark, and he was a leader in the anti-Morman movement which resulted in that people's emigration from the state. D.G. Morrow was born in Tennessee, while his wife was a native of Missouri. He was reared to manhood by his uncle and before 1849 went to Buffalo, Missouri. He tried to enlist for service in the Mexican war but was rejected. He went to California during the gold rush of '49, making the trip with oxen, and he was exceeedingly fortunate in his prospecting, securing a gratifying amount of gold. He then returned to Missouri but in 1852 started on another trip across the plains, driving a number of cattle. He had trouble with the Mormons but succeeded in getting his cattle to their destination with little loss. The return trip was made by way of the Isthmus of Panama and he was shipwrecked on the Bahama reefs, where he was some time later rescued by another crew. He was married at the age of thirty years in Ozark, Missouri, and remained in that state as merchant and stockman until 1861, when he returned to his native state. In 1861, upon the outbreak of the Civil war, he came to Arkansas and enlisted from Marion county. He was with Shelby in his raid through Missouri and was in active service until the close of the war. He then returned to Marion county, this state. He was a stanch supporter of the democratic party and both he and his wife were consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal church, South. Twelve children were born to their union: Cleopatra whose demise occurred at the age of eithteen years; Octavia, deceased, who was the wife of Dr. J.I. Thompson of Yellville; Isephena the wife of Jess Horner, a resident of Yellville; Laura deceased, who was the wife of A.M. Watts; Thomas, engaged in farming in Marion county; Maggie, the wife of J.D. Sims of Lakeland, Florida; Mason, farming in Marion county; Albert, enganged in agricultural pursuits in Oklahoma; Dr. John J, whose name initiates this review; and three other children who died in early life.
Dr. John J. Morrow received his education in the common schools of Marion county and later entered the academy at Valley Springs. For four years he engaged in teaching in the rural schools of Marion county and then, having decided upon a medical career, he entered the medical department of the University of Arkansas,

Lists one Morrow from KY. Thomas Morrow, pioneer in eclectic medicine, was born in Fairview KY in 1804, the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Vaughan) Morrow. The Dictionary of American Biography has additional info on this man. Thomas Morrow, "founder of eclecticism" organized the Reformed medical School in Cincinnati in 1842 and served as dean and professor. Dolly McCready (Mrs. Richard F) of Winchester KY has done research on the Morrows of Bourbon Co KY. Her ancestor is Hiram Morrow, son of Robert Morrow, who was probably born in PA, died in Bourbon County in 1814 and wife Sarah (Sally), maiden name unknown but probably Sarah Riley. Sarah moved to Missouri taking her children with her. Dolly has deed, marriage and other records of the Bourbon Co Morrows & will share them.

The family legend has always maintained that the first of our line on these shores was a Thomas. If you visit the FTM site I referenced, you'll see the first Morrow we have proven is Charles, b. ca. 1782 in Ireland. He had children born in Bucks County, Pa., in the first part of the 19th century, was drafted from there for service in the War of 1812 (I have gotten his service record from the National Archives), then settled in Ohio.
The pre-Charles hole is huge. So far, no single, provable fact has landed on us. We suspect he was from County Down, which was only an interim home for a family of Scots origins.
Another mystery (to us) Thomas was the Maryland-born, 64-year-old found in Flushing township, Belmont County, Ohio, in the 1850 census. We've seen things that hint he may have been Charles' brother. If so, Charles would clearly have to have arrived as a young child. That, in turn suggests the "first immigrant" (nece, the "first Thomas," too was his father.
I am especially interested in any turn-of-the-19th-century Morrows in Bucks or Philadelphia Counties (Marshall, Charles' son who was my progenitor, claimed to have been born in Philadelphia, though we now know the family was in Bucks County both earlier and later than Marshall's birth). Even better would be Bucks County Morrows with antecedents directly from Ireland or from Ireland via Maryland.
We're also actuely interested in identifying Charles' wife, Rachel. Family legend has long held that she was descended from John Morton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. We know that Charles' Bucks county neighbors included Courtland Morton and that one of Marshall's brothers was Courtland Morton Morrow. We don't know there was a link between Courtland Morton and Rachel.
If you think you have anything that connects to this uncertainty, I'd love to hear about it. And, maybe, just maybe, I could help link some of that vast collection of Thomases!
Brothers Cortland Morton MORROW and Marshall MORROW each served as sheriff of Monroe County, with Marshall MORROW also serving one term (1858-59) as State Senator from District 19 (Monroe, Guernsey, and part of Noble counties).

MORROW, Col. John C. DEATH OF COL. J.C. MORROW Col. J.C. Morrow died at the Soldiers Home at Minnehaha Falls on Sunday last at the age of 57. The deceased was a native of Woodsfield, Monroe County, Ohio, and enlisted in the Ninety-Second Ohio volunteers early in the war. His ability secured him promotion and he rose to the rank of a lieutenant colonel, being the youngest officer of that grade, it was claimed, in the service. He served in the army of the Tennessee and participated in Sherman's famous march through Georgia. Upon the close of the war he came to Minnesota and opened a law office in Faribault in partnership with the late John S. Randolph. During his residence here he served one term as Judge of Probate. About 10 years ago he removed to Minneapolis, where he resided until he entered the soldiers' home.
Col. Morrow had a fine physique, conjoined with superior natural abilities, and had he possessed the power of self control might have made for himself an enviable record professionally and in society. In an evil hour he became a slave to intemperance and all efforts at emancipation proved fruitless. -- Faribault (Minn.) Republican, Feb. 12, 1896
MORROW, Thomas C. (no headline) The following obituary of T.C. Morrow of whose death mention was made in this paper of Thursday last, is from the Mazomanie Sickle.
Thomas Coleman Morrow died at his home, a short distance north of this village, last Friday evening, dropsy and asthma being the cause of his death. He was born in Woodsfield, Ohio, April 6, 1850. He moved to Mazomanie with his parents in 1868, and has since resided at the old homestead. Deceased was educated in the Mazomanie schools and the Platteville normal. He followed teaching for a number of years, and it is said he excelled as an instructor. Having been a sufferer from asthma since infancy, he could not play as other boys, and his mind turned to other sources of amusement. He was a keen observer, a great reader and a man of large mental ability. He was well versed in Indian lore, and as a naturalist had no equal in this part of the country. Scarcely a bird, small animal or reptile native of these parts but he knew their habits. He was a friend of the boys, and took delight in helping them with the more difficult problems that confronted them in their school work. He was also an artist of no mean ability, and has many excellent paintings. He leaves one brother, J.F. Morrow, of Spring Green, and one sister, who lived with him. An older brother, a colonel in the army, died a few years ago in Calfiornia (sic). Mr. Morrow was buried Tuesday, services being held at the house at 1:30 p.m., conducted by Rev. Crawford. -- Weekly Home News, Spring Green, Wis., Thursday, Feb. 5, 1904

He has been in failing health for some months and was taken to the home three weeks ago.

He was seventy-five years of age. Interment will be made at Spring Green today. -- The Sickle, Mazomanie, Wis., Dec. 22, 1922
MORROW, Mary Ann (no headline) Miss Mary Ann Morrow, an old resident of this place, died at the home of Miss Augusta Blomiley, Friday, July 30, 1926.

The following obituary of Gershom Morrow, although originally submitted
by an unnamed nephew, regrettably misspells his first name. Gershom and
his family were living in Franklin Township (in or near Stafford),
Monroe County, Ohio, when the 1850 US census was recorded.
The Angel of Death came to the home of Gushen Morrow on April
29, and called his spirit home. God's way is not ours and it was his
will be done. HE hast said: "Blessed is he that comes in the name if
Thou hast left us dear brother,
To meet us on earth no more
Thou hast bid us farewell,
Only to meet us on God's eternal shore.
Where the flowers of life are blooming,
On the bright and crystal shore,
Where we shall never say good-bye
Or parting shall be no more
Then we shall all
be gathered home to part no more,
Thou art sleeping in silence to waken in earth no more
But thou shalt waken with Jesus
Where peace shall reign forevermore.
Gushen Morrow was
born March 13th, 1811, in Buck's (sic)
County, Pa. When but 7 years old he moved to Belmont county, Ohio, and
married to Nancy Huffman on Oct 23, 1834, and to this union was born 9
children, six remaining. His wife died Oct. 26, 1860. On January 29,
1863, he married Belsora (sic) Hesket. To this union there were 4
children, who were present at the time of his death. Bro. Morrow was a
sufferer for years, though he never complained, but waited for the
blessed Master to call him hence. For over 70 years he was a faithful
member of the M.E. church, and was always ready to help his fellowman;
and in the church he was a constant worker, ready to perform any
obligation and duty that might fall to his lot. All that loving hands
and medical aid could do was done, but the summons came and had to be
answered. The funeral services were conducted by Bro. Nash of West
Hartford. assisted by Bros. Rice and Taylor of Center. In the midst of
a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives his remains were
quietly laid to rest in Mt. Olivet cemetery. To the bereaved ones we
extend our heartfelt sympathy. Peace to his
County papers please copy.
