Who are the parents of Isaac B. Morton.  I've hit a stone wall.  He's my GGG Grandfather.

1850 census lists home in Upper Southwest, Onslow, North Carolina.  Individuals living in household at that time either too old to be Isaac B Morton’s children or having a different surname are:  Asa Morton b abt 1825, Micajah Morton b abt 1830,  Susan Morton b abt 1820, and Jane Ward b abt 1838.

Isaac B. Morton who was the owner of a busy Tar Landing shipping point on the upper New River, owned a two-story hall-parlor dwelling which was considered one of the finer examples of a transitional style known as the Federal/Greek Revival.

Isaac B. Morton's homeplace is believed to be located on N.C. State Road 1213 (Blue Creek Rd.) about 1\2 mile East of State Road 1212. This area is about 1.7 miles North of the SouthWest crossroads.

I went to the genealogy center today and I managed to get some information that might help. I put him in the gealogylibrary and sure enough he came up. So How do you want the information. I can email them to you cause I downloaded them to my computer but there are some that I had to copy and I would be glad to send them to you.  If you can send me an email at my email address -  nst1953turney2013@gmail.com and I can email them to you. You tell me Cause I think I did think I found his father. He is not in North Carolina, he is in Massachusetts

I am still researching this family and I hope to have more info later.  Most of the Morton family is buried in the family cemetery in Onslow, N.C.

1900 Census of Lowndes, Miss. shows G.T. Morton married to J. F.  and they have 4 children. On that same census down from the G.T. Morton's, you will find a J. A. Eggis, or Egger. he is listed as head born Dec. 1872 and M.B. -wife born Jan 1873 or 74.The have a son .R.G. born March 1896 and daughter Mary A born Jan 1898.  Egger is 27 years and M.B. Egger is 26 years. This could be kin to Fleta Polk. I don't know for sure. Could be a brother? G. T. Morton and Fleta Polk married 24 April 1892.

I will try to research this some more and get back to you.  Most all I have is from Familysearch.org.

Thanks again for letting me help with searching.

Please forgive me but I think I made a mistake, I was trying to help this other person who was asking for help about a G.T. Morton and just thought it was connected. But realizing what I did I just thought I would help and I got the information messed up. But G.T. Morton may not have been in this family of Isaac Morton. But let me correct it and get back to you. Please accept my apology and maybe I can find the right information. Thanks Nancy

I got your email and but I will have to do some checking at the genealogy center. They have the books on Onslow North Carolina and I will see if I can find his father or parents. I am sure I can find it but if he wasn't born in North Carolina then I will need to know where he was born. If there is anything you can tell me that I don't already know then please let me know.  I am sure that the family bible is there also maybe it will have his parents. I will get back to you this evening after 6 pm Central time. I will bring back the information if I can. Thanks for the opportunity to do this research. Nancy
