Morrowville Families

    The following list of families that settled in Morrowville and the surrounding area is intended to give the reader an idea of when the family arrived in the area and of how the families have become interrelated over the years. It is recognized that all of the generations are not listed. It is the intent to show the relationship to others of those who have grown up in the area. When a person left the community and raised a family elsewhere, the ensuing generations do not appear unless a sibling returned and the listing is needed to place that person in the proper family. The later generations appear with the listing of the father's family and do not appear with the listing of the mother's family to conserve space. There are some families that are not listed due to a lack of information or because they have left the area completely. If members of your family were omitted, you may wish to write them in your copy of the book to make the book more meaningful to future readers.
