All I know is Joel was born in 1769. On the 1880 census in Hernando Co.,Fla. Marshall John Morton said his father was born in Va. Marshall was born in S.C. in 1822. I think he had a brother Edward L. Morton who was born in 1821. They born both living in Coweta Co.,Ga.Marshall moved his family to Fla. by 1860. Edward moved his to Dekalh Co. Ga. There may have been more kids.Sarah might of been a second wife I don't know. I have the paper that Marshall John Morton daugther send my mother and she said her grandfather was Joel and her grandmother was Sarah Sanders. Thank You Kathy
.I do know that niece Nelly Morton was in Va. when she was married to Samuel Martin.He was most likly married in the 1800.
