Notes

Note N2200Still some MAJOR concerns here: James is listed in HAD as birth 1742/43 with wife Mary /_?_/ while these DAR admissions give birth in 1742 AND 1747 and wife Mary Bradford - are these just errors, or are there 2 James being confused?????

Just a few quick comments from the top of my head. (I'll try to look for some further info).
One thing that really helped me was looking at the naming of children of later generations. The names Daniel, James, Edward, and John helped to guess a connection. Also looking at civil war records help me to connect 2 brothers to a cousin when all 3 served in the same unit during the civil war. Looking back to prior generations some names help match things up. For instance the name of Aquilla Norris was used for 2 gen in Ohio. James Norris (1742) had a brother Aquilla who was a Captian in the MD militia.
A son of Daniel Norris (1766-1851), Edward Norris (1816-1863) married Margaret T Potts, dau of John Potts (1790?-1876). These Potts originally settled in Ohio in Columbiana/Carroll Co, Ohio. Tony Norris is a decendant of that line.
To be honest about the HULL line, I have looked for info on them but I cant prove anything about them. That info came from Davis and where he got that I dont have a clue.
I have sent copies of this email to 2 Norris cousins who might have some insights or suggestions.

>Thanks for this. It's terribly frustrating to nail down John, William, and Thomas in the Norris line, isn't it? I've been stuck for over a
year now, and don't know where to go from here. I really appreciate your help.
>I do see what may be a coincidental connection to the line you sent below:
>My direct ancestor, James Norris (1830-1870; grandson of my William Norris) married Barbara HULL in Ohio. She was the daughter of Benjamin (b. 1807) and Nancy Hull both born in PA. Benjamin and Nancy Hull named their only son Abraham.
>There were very few Hulls in Ohio, so I think there might be a connection to your Abraham Hull born 1775. Plus Jonathon Potts, brother
of my William Norris's wife, settled in Perry Co Ohio.
>Re. my quest for William Norris born Nov 5 1768 m to Margaret Potts 1790 in Washington Co., MD:
>Corinne Diller thinks she has the ancestry of John Norris who was married to Christiana Potts, Margaret's sister. Duane Sawyer says in a posting that John Norris and my William were first cousins, but I think he was just extrapolating from what Corinne said.
>Corinne has John Norris as the son of a William, a brother of Nathaniel. That would imply my William is Nathaniel's son, but somehow I don't think it all adds up.
>There are many missing Norris children. Do you know of any other children of James b. 1742 besides Daniel?
>Do you know anything about the crowd in Little Orleans, Allegany Co, MD?
>I don't know where to go from here. I'm only a couple of hours from Frederick and Washington County, but not sure what to look for. I
>already have marriage and census records, but this does not tell me who William's father was.
>Any suggestions appreciated.

>Hi Janet,
>I want you to know that I'm more than willing to help out.
>My early Norris research was based on the Davis Manuscript and the Norris Family of Maryland by Meyers. The Davis Manuscript had my line pretty well messed up. He had my GG GF John R Norris of Perry Co as being decended from John and Mary Raitt Norris from the Nathaniel Norris line but that was way off.
>I also have a copy of the short obit for James Norris (1742-1824) that you mentioned. I also have a copy of a DAR app on behalf of a decendant that says his wife was Mary BRADFORD not Norris. The marriage records of MD shows Mary Norris.
>Listed below is what I currently show as children of James Norris. I do know that they lived near the Hartford-Baltimore Co area. My GGG GF Daniel Norris was married at Monkton,MD at St James Espic Church in 1792. James Norris' mother was Hannah Scott Norris. Hannah gf was Daniel Scott who owned a lot of land in MD. 1 parcel of land he onced owned later became Bel Air, MD.

Hi Guys,
Just got back from Williamsburg. Nice trip eventhough we had a lot of rain. Dogwood was in bloom.
Jamestown was neat as that was the earliest English settlement in the colonies. I believe Thomas the immigrant started off somewhere in Virginia before moving to Maryland.
Williamsburg was time setting was 1774.....2 years before the revoutionary war. It gave you the feeling what our Norris gang in Maryland was feeling. Also, the importance of the Church of England was great. James Norris (1742-1815) was a church warden. Most of the time the church would have 2 of these....position similiar to a deacon but they also were supposed to keep track of certain violations agaisnt church laws and also to help the Priest.
Also went to Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson (1743-1816). He was almost the same age as our James Norris. (1742-1815). TJ is buried there but a "newer" marker was put up by the government in 1880 or so.
Did stay overnight in Cumberland, MD but didnt have a chance to do much except watch tv....eat ...and sleep. So maybe next year....I can go over towards Blackhorse and Monkton and Bel Air MD......
See Ya
Phil
