Parents of Zachariah Morris (1820-????) and wife Mary???

+3 votes

I'm trying to find the parents of my 4x great-grandfather, Zachariah Morris as well as his wife, Mary. I've found a census with them listed and I'm fairly certain he's the same Zachariah McKinley "William Zack" Morris listed on my 3x great-grandfather, Henry Avery Morris' death record. Although it'd be great if I could get confirmation on that as well.

The census is from 1860 in Hardin, Illinois. Zachariah was born in 1820 in Kentucky while his wife Mary was born in 1819 in Illinois. 

The listing as follows:

Zacharia Morris   M 40 Kenty
Mary Morris   F 41 Ills
Catharine Morris   F 22 Ills
John Morris   M 19 Ills
Thomas Morris   M 18 Ills
Mary Morris   F 16 Ills
Wm Morris   M 13 Ills
Maria Morris   F 10 Ills
Henry Morris   M 5 Ills
Lucinda Morris   F   Ills

Not sure if this helps but in the 1850 census, the family lives near a family named Palmer. A Catherine Palmer lives with the Morris family. It is possible she is a family member of either Zachariah or his wife. Perhaps Palmer is the surname of Mary. Worth exploring.

Ah, thank you so much! I'll try to research this and see I can figure out something. I had noticed that myself so thank you!
