Mitch you are the best!!!! Awesom man just awesom!!! How did you know I was talkng about a Morris uncle???? Working from memory??? Or to be more specfic, that is the name if not the same man I was referring to. I have only worked on my Morris line a couple of months so I cannot be certain, but the story is close, mighty close. Now I am sure there are a couple hundred men named William Morris in the area. Do you know if this W. Morris goes back to old man Sim(e)Morris of Pike County or John Sim(e) Morris of Walthall County. If you have nothing I can send it to some of my Morris cousins and maybe they know.
Well it is a family legend, getting thrown to the hogs, at least that is what I think of my first reading.
Thanks man this is the fisrt printed info I have found that even comes close.
