Her surname is from the Boston marriage record, but her parentage or origins are not known to me at this time.

Children: Isaac Morris, Edward Morris Jr, Grace Morris Child, Ebenezer Morris, Elizabeth Morris Child, Margaret Morris Johnson, Samuel Morris, and Martha Morris Lyon.

NOTE: While her husband is buried in Woodstock,CT, the reference to her on the monument is likely a cenotaph. From A Genealogical and Historical Register of the Descendants of Edward Morris of Roxbury, Mass., and Woodstock, Conn.:

"How long our good but distant grandmother, Grace, the widow of Edward Morris, remained in Woodstock we do not know. We find her death, June 6, 1705, recorded in Roxbury, where, perhaps, she may have returned either to visit or make her home with her married daughters, the Childs, or with her son Samuel. The place of her burial is not known. The compiler supposes it to have been in the ancient burying-ground at the corner of Washington and Eustis streets in Roxbury, or possibly in the buring-ground at West Roxbury Village,; but no stone marks it in either place."
