  1. Hi, Holland Morris Sr was my 5th great grandfather. Nice to meet you cousin 🙂

    • Hi Abraham, nice to meet you too 🙂
      Which one of his children is your line?

  2. Hi there,
    did your Holland Morris/Sarah English have a son named MArshall? TXS

    • Hi Beth,
      I know that I don’t have a complete list of children for Holland and Sarah yet, so I took a quick look at some family trees on The first one that I came upon was that of Abraham Smith who commented above. I hadn’t heard back from him, but his tree has Marshall Morris (1813-1897) as the son of Holland and Sarah and has he the Paternal Y Chromosome DNA test as a positive match. So I’d day that Marshall Morris was most definitely their son. However, this Marshall Morris doesn’t seem to have any information linking him to Texas. I’m going to look for some documented sources and add him to this family group sheet in just a few minutes.
