Note: In November I adopted a number of profiles and many lack sources. Please be patient as I atempt to add valid source information. If you help source a pre -1700 profile, please make sure it is a pre-1700 approved Wiki source.
To save confusion and make the tree come up accurate this profile is under my birth name, my adopted family gave me a first name that I really use ; Trish, if you are messaging me.
I was adopted at birth and had records opened in 2012 finding most of my birth family ! Still searching for 3 of my siblings that had closed adoptions like mine. Names at birth : Beverly Morrison, possibly of Douglas County or Wright County MO, other names possibly Elizabeth, and Daisy. But they could be anything as they were all adopted very young.
Also interested in Acadian history of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, which matches my mtDNA, and Native American ancestry which I have distant ancestors.
A wall in my direct maternal line has been recently knocked down using DNA! We now know that Thomas Smith b. 1810 was descended from Benjamin Smith b: ? Suffolk England d: 1772, Frederick VA . Son: Thomas Smith (1740 - 1784), Son : Martin Smith (1770 - 1811), Son: Thomas Smith (1810 - d: abt 1884 most likely in Douglas County Missouri ) and then on down to, my now broken brick wall, my 2 x GG Mother : Patsy Mariah Epha "Fannie or Phansy" Smith (1851 - 1891) Thomas Smith 1810 was born in Fredrick County, Va and lived in Harrison County and Douglas County Missouri.
Spouse, Phebe or Judah, marriage in 1849 in Williamson, TN. Their child in my line was Patsy Mariah, as stated above : abt 1851-2 AKA "Phansey" "Fannie" Their other kids were John CM, Thomas J, Mariette "Mary C, Lydia A, Ammeltia "Artimesia", and Martha born abt 1856, ? other children. Residence in 1850 Harrison, Missouri. We are still searching for the parents of Thomas 1810's spouse Phebe or Judah R. Unknown surname, born abt 1817 in Tennessee. Both parents are listed on census records as born in Georgia.
Brick Wall in paternal line Nathaniel Morrison born abt 1790 either in North Carolina or Viginia, USA. Married Hannah Marie Austin had at least one child Alfred Caswell Morrison, source Alfred Caswell's death certificate in Chico, CA in 1907. See Y-test of Morrison-4484.
Elizabeth Horn is a brick wall. She was a 2x great grandmother in paternal line, born about 1816- 1824, place of birth Greene County, Tennessee or North Carolina? Wife of Alfred Caswell Morrison. AKA Caswell Morris he sometimes used. They married June 9, 1845 marriage record in Greene County, Tennessee. Lived in Greene County, MO (which became Christian County MO.) And later years in Lawrence County, MO by Ash Grove. They were never formally divorced that we know of, Alfred ran off to the West Coast in about 1868 with another woman. Elizabeth went to live with one of her kids in Northwest Arkansas. Mother of Hewey or Huey E. Morrison, Sarah M. Morrison, William L. Morrison, John W. Morrison, George W. Morrison, Rachael E. Morrison and Abigale H. Morrison
So, so Many, but here are a few: James "Jimmy" Caudill-168 - Pioneer of Kentucky 4x Great Grandfather - Has a highway plack commenorating him.
Sarah Thomas-11650 and husband Joseph Walker-12162- 5x GG Parents - Really all the Walkers of Rehoboth. But, Sarah nursed and fed George Washington's Revolutionary War Soldiers in their home.
John Ross-11140 1st C, 7XR- Husband of Betsy Ross of Flag Making fame, and a hero in his own right as he died guarding a munitions warehouse. And his sister Dorothy Ross-6155, who is most likely a co-designer of the flag with her sister in law as she had more sewing experience and worked with them in the family shop.
Wiki Relationship Finder shows me related to the following US Presidents:
While doing this exercise, I noticed that several of these presidents are related to each other. Maybe aspiring to the Presidentcy runs in a persons DNA ?
Wiki Relationship Finder shows me related to the following Magna Carta Surety Barrons:
(this is a work in progress....may be more)
Wiki Relationship Finder shows me related to these other Famous Profiles:

DNA Confirmation Source Maternal: Maternal relationship is confirmed by Family Tree DNA test of Morrison-4392 and FTDNA test of N Sherman, daughter W Sherman FTDNA test and 23 & me test of granddaughter, L McClain all uploaded to Gedmatch.com . Morrison-4392 sharing with N Sherman 209 cm's across 19 segments, 100 cm's across 14 segments respectively. MRCA are to Smith-70621 proving 2nd Cousin 1R, and 2R. Also 23&me tests of Morrison-4392 and White-48382 proving MRCA of 1st cousin , based on sharing 1045 cm's across 37 segments.
DNA Confirmation Source Paternal: * Paternal relationship is confirmed by a Family Tree DNA , Family Finder test match between Morrison-4484 Leslie Morrison and Morrison-4392 Loretta Morrison, Leslie being her paternal Uncle sharing 1621 centimorgans across 46 segments. And Y-line DNA test at Family tree DNA match between C. Morrison and Morrison-4392, MRCA being Morrison -4473 Alfred Caswell Morrison. Confirming them as Y-line match cousins sharing one-two time great grandfathers common ancestor being Alfred Caswell Morrison. 2nd cousins once removed based on 224 centimorgans across 26 segments. Twelve marker matches Morrison-4484, to other R-M269 and R-P312 Morrison clan in Scotland, but stuck at 3x great grandfather Nathaniel Morrison of NC, VA in the USA.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz! Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, thus coordinating with others is essential.
I see you have joined a project already. :-) Please refer to the new recommended sources for citing Pre-1700’s sources. when working on profiles of that time period and with your project profiles.
For questions, just ask.
