Anyone want to do a Morse connection?

I am spending a lot of time with a grandchild until school starts.  But last night I was looking at an unconnected profile I "manage."

Someone has put up their family tree on familysearch - you can see it here

https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/9X1J-SSH

A lot of it seems unsourced right now, but I run into this family tree while working on my own Morse ancestors and this line seems to have kept up with themselves in admirable fashion.  The something great-grandparents are already on wikitree - Willis and Letitia Morse https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Morse-3801  This family migrated from North Carolina to Mississippi.

If you are like me and love to do connections and have the time, please feel free to go for it!

I have Jimmy connected to Willis.  The sourcing is a bit thin and I have to go back and fill in the blanks, but the main trunk of the tree is there.

Wow!  I hope you had fun doing that!  Impressive!
Yeah it's always fun connecting people. I was getting worried because I didn't have a real source proving that Henry Edgar was the father of Jimmy. So I had to go to ancestry.com which has intelligent indexing which can predict all the possible ways that census takers can misspell names.  This is one of the worst I have seen,  Morse, Masse, Marse...it drives me nuts, former spelling bee champion that I am.
