The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 115:212, "Vital Records of York, Maine" (1961), records a 1770 marriage for James Witham (Wittum) and Rachel Miller, whom researchers believe to be the parents of Morris Witham.

Morris and his parents were part of a larger group that traveled from Maine to the midwest in the early 1800s. It is speculated that it was in either Hamilton County, Ohio, or Union County, Indiana, that Morris married Rebecca Billings, part of the same group of migrants from New England. Rebecca was at least a dozen years younger than Morris, who at the time of their marriage was probably about 30-32 years old.

The farming couple was in Fayette County, Indiana, by the 1820 census, Union County by 1830, Porter County by 1840, and finally White County by 1850, where both passed away within a year of each other before the next census could come.

Morris and Rebecca are believed to have had the following children: Hetty Ann (aka Mehetabel, b. 1810, m. Charles Allen), James (b. 1811), Lydia (b. 1814, m. James Ray), Delila (b. 1816, m. Joel Kinzie), Joseph (b. 1820), Alfred Morris (b. 1821), Simon (b. 1824), William (b. 1826), Martha J. (b. 1828, m. Solomon Stanley), Rebecca (b. 1832, m. John E. Webster), and Edmond (b. 1833).
