Family Record of William Bryan MORRIS

by | Miscellaneous Records | 0 comments

Editor’s note: Not all of William B. Morris’ children from his three wives are listed in this record. It appears William picked up this book and wrote in it when he thought to do it… or maybe one of his wives actually made the record, although I suspect it was him.

First set of pages (Note: not first pages of book):

Left page:

Along horizontal edge of left page it appears to say “Henry Morris”, but I cannot be certain

William Morris

Susan Morris (illegible number is written beside it)

Henry Morris (illegible number is beside it)

Willam Morris (He had begun to write the letter W, and then he started again as if he was having trouble with his pen)

Then there are a number of cursive letters written around the bottom of the page, as if he was only testing his pen to see if it would write.)

Right page:

William Morris the son of William Morris and Susan Morris his wife was born September the 30th 1833
