Eleanor was the daughter of James and Martha Morrison. See the Bio of her father James for immigration details.
Eleanor was one of the Morrison children who stayed in NYC. According to her death record, She married a Mr. Connell, but no census record of this couple has been found. She was a widow at the time of her death, and she had been living with her brother Joseph. No record of children has been found.
I have found the Christening record of Eleanor that shows she was born on November 6, 1811, and baptised on Nov 9, 1811, indicating her father James Morrison, was living in the townland of Broharris, Tamlaght Finlagan Parish, in the County of Londonderry, (see photo at lower right) with Ballykelly being the closet city. This birth date matches exactly that found on her cemetery marker at Green-wood. Today Broharris is a working farm.
Much effort has been made to find the spouse of Eleanor in New York.
