Birth: Jul. 16, 1817, USA
Death: Nov. 13, 1854
Missouri, USA

Evidence indicates that Mary Ann Button was the second daughter of Elias Button (1783-1823) and Nancy Settle (1791-1852), who were married in Barren County, Kentucky on Oct 19, 1810. Elias Button, son of Harmon Button and Sarah Fishback, served in the War of 1812 in Capt. Samuel F Malone's company, commanded by Lt.-Col. William Mitchusson, of the Kentucky Detached Militia. The Button family migrated to Kentucky from Culpepper County, Virginia. Sarah Fishback was a descendant of original settlers of the Germanna Colony established in Virginia in 1714 by a group of German immigrants from Siegen-Nassau (Fischbach and other families). Mary Ann Button was born July 16, 1814 in Barren County, Kentucky. She married Jordon A. Morriss about 1836. This date is based on the birth date of their oldest child, Eliza Martin Morriss. Jordan and Mary Ann Morriss migrated to Lawrence County, Missouri circa 1850, again estimating the year based on the dates and places of birth of their children. They were parents of twelve children (see below).
