RE: Rebecca Green

the info I have on Rebecca came from a book called "DeMaranville Genealogy: Descendants of Louis DeMaranville" by George Leander Randall. Louis is another of my ancestors, a Frenchman that married into the White family a couple generations after Rebecca. It lists her surname as Green there, and I didn't see anything on her parents, etc. Here are is a link to a full text online copy of the book:

I also have a booklet ("Families of the Pilgrims: William White published by the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants) I got while in Plymouth, MA a couple years ago, but in that, it lists her surname as unknown.

RE: Jesse Morrison
Hi Becki,
I was so surprised to see a response this morning ! I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short when connecting with others researching the Morrisons. Thank you so much for contacting me.
I have a wealth of information to share with you about them and other related families. We can email or you can just call me, which ever you feel comfortable with. I can copy and send info or if we live close enough we can meet somewhere...I'm not the most computer savvy person ! Ha Ha ...but I love the journey genealogy seems to take you on. You decide and let me know. I will respect your decision.
First I would like to say that as far as I have been able to determine Eleanor is actually the daughter of Charles LeFevbre. Her mother married Francoise Saucier after Charles died. There is some question as to whether Francoise adopted her prior children but no documentation that I am aware of. The dates speak for themselves as to the marriage and what has been passed down through our family does support the LeFevbre line. Jesse's parents were most definitely John Morrison and Rebecca Bryan of Doylestown, Bucks County, Pa. They had thirteen children ! Five of their sons ventured to Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin and Michigan for sure. Louis Philip was connected with the mining business in Mich. The company's name was Calumet. I have more on this.
The William Morrison you mentioned I'm not sure about. Each of the five brothers had sons named William...Have to weed that one out. I have some ideas on how William may fit into your story. This Morrison clan was very wealthy, well known and very connected in their time.
I have, I believe, a complete list of Jesse and Eleanor's well as the rest of the brothers. I also have birth, death and marriage certificates for quite a few of the Morrisons and related families. I also possess a chronicle written by Bernice Morrison Fuller...a must read when researching this family. Her father was William M. Morrison born 1814, his father was Major James Morrison born 1767 and his mother was Emile LeFevbre sister of Eleanor. There is so much information in regard to these brothers that a book could be written on nearly all of them. There is even an illegitimate son of the oldest brother, William, that achieved quite a name for himself in politics. He was nick named "Horizontal Bill."
Well, I hope this is of some interest and I will be looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm regards,

Jesse Morrison
I am also researching the Morrisons...have been off and on for 15 years. Jesse and Eleanor are grand parents five generations back. I have scads of information and would be happy to share.
The Adeline Morrison in question was Jesse's daughter in law. She was married to John Morrison, son of Jesse and Eleanor. They were divorced and Eleanor lived with her children at Jesse's home in Galena, Il. She moved to Chicago with one of her daughters until she died. She was brought back to Galena by train and buried at St. Michael's Cemetery. John remarried. I have additional information on the Morrisons. It can be a bit confusing at times. Jesse had twelve siblings and five of the boys came first to Kaskaskia,Il.
Find A Grave is new to me. I just happened to stumble across it digging up bones. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me.

RE: Jesse Morrison
Yes, Becki, I'd like to take a look at your Clark Tree. Thank you. After several days reviewing the Morrisons, I think I'm more confused than ever!

RE: Jesse Morrison
Thank you very much for your Morrison information! Locating the death entry on Ancestry, I moved the Jesse Morrison memorial to interment in Cedar Grove Cemetery, Suffolk County, MA. I do believe there were descendants…perhaps from a deceased son?? Might you know? Appreciate all!
