    The following deeds has the wife of Henry Mourison still alive in 1846, Wm. L Mourison and wife Mary, selling property, and probably preparing to leave for MI. Catherine does not appear in MI in 1850 with either the Benjamin and Zebediah Zeluf family or with William L. Mourison. Could she have died or moved into the home of William Stiles or Henry Collard?
    The 75 acres is part of the land that Henry Mourison owned from the death of his father in 1787-1789 until 1822 when the tax records stopped.

    Is anyone working on Zeluff family in Morris County?
    I went to MI census for 1850 after finding them in BLM records for MI.
    By the way the Toledo Strip was a disputed area between MI and OH and went to OH in 1837.
    Anyway the Zeluf family is in Monroe County, MI. William L., S. & B. Mourison is there, also, with families in 1850. No one stayed in Morris County except Henry Collerd and William Stiles with Mourison wives.
    My question is who are the other Zeluf men in MI living next to Benjamin age 60 and Zebediah Zeluf age 60?
    They are in the townships of Dundee and Milam in Monroe County.

    Hi Judy,
     
    Here is the obituary on William Mourison, father of Rachel V., wife of Caleb E. Hill that I told you I would send.

    MORRISON, WILLIAM L.
    Historical Collections and Researches made by the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society, Vol 27, Robert Smith Printing Co., Lansing, 1897

     
    Death of William L. Morrison/Mourison
     
    William Morrison died at the home of his son, Clarence Morrison, Saturday morning, November 16, 1895, aged 95 years. In number of years he was the oldest resident of Dundee Township. Came to Dundee forty-seven years ago last summer, removed from Morris county, New Jersey, and located upon the farm which he has since occupied and where he died?two miles south of the village, on Petersburg road. His wife died twenty-nine years ago; she was the mother of ten children, only three of whom are now living?Clarence Morrison and Mrs. Ezra Ellis, of Dundee, and Josiah Morrison, now living in California.He had continued to enjoy good health until within a few years,and was lively and a worker. The last time that he was in the village was to attend the election of 1892, but has been about the home premises until the past year, during which he has been obliged to remain within the house on account of increasing feebleness.
     
    "Uncle Billy," as he was generally called, was known by all the community, was social and intelligent. Was a Democrat in politics, and was always on hand at elections to cast his vote for that party. Funeral was held at the home, Monday forenoon, Rev. Perrin officiating and remains buried in Oakwood Cemetery.

    Subject:Old Petersburg Cemetery Update
    Date:Sun, Feb 5, 2012 6:47 pm

    Greetings to my Peters relations and researchers,

    For those who have undertaken the research of the Peters family, the Wing Cemetery (also known as Old Petersburg & Petersburg Village Cemetery) is a familiar resting place.
     
    Richard Peters and his wife Polly (Wilcox), are the third great grandparents of my husband. The family migrated from Harpersfield, New York in 1824 and purchased about 600 acres from the US government in Summerfield Township, Monroe County, Michigan. Their children (Mary and Richard) were the first and last interments in the one-acre cemetery which is located on the north side of Center Street.
     
    The good news is that in 2009 a group of local volunteers began a restoration project to repair the old stones. As of November (2011), eighty-two graves had been repaired, many of which had fallen, were crooked, damaged or had so much lichen on them they were unreadable. Among those restored was the Peters monument, Amelia (Trombley) and some of the Hill and Holmes headstones.
     
    In October of 2011, I was contacted by Steve Shaffer who was researching the ancestry of his grandson, and he has sent me many obituaries and the new photos of the headstones at the Old Petersburg Cemetery.
     
    These restorations and Steve's photos led me to locate more information on the following burials/persons:
    Rosilyn E. Trombley - now speculated to be the daughter of Peter and Amelia Antaya, and wife of Edward Trombley.
    Julia Ann Hill - daughter of John Bowen and Sylvia (Rose), wife of Horace Hill
    Edith Trombley - daughter of Jean Baptiste Drouillard and his wife Catherine (Arcouet)Full name of Ansel Van Buren Heath, and information on 2nd wife Charity (Leonard), daughter of Henry B. and Mary Ann (Voorhees)
    Full name and information on Rachel Hill. Now known to be Rachel Vreeland Mourison, daughter of William L. and wife Mary (Seger)
    Identity of Adda and Edward/Edwin A. Trombley - children of Moses and Ada/Edith (Drouillard)
    These are just a few of the new additions. I have taken the liberty to speculate on some of the information I've been gathering the past couple of months - so if you have opinions on these, or know they are in error, please feel free to advise me. 
     
    I have located many death certificates and have included links to the images, and or links to census records or extractions in support of my research; and to assist you in furthering your own database. Feel free to download those images and save them.
     
    Enough thanks can not be said for all Steve's enthusiasm and generosity. He has expressed to me his willingness to share the photos, so please feel free to save those images as well. I've a note to other viewers not to "lift" them, in hopes they will contact me if they have a connection to the family and we have not yet heard from them.
    Besides the old headstone photos, I have included biographical sketches on: Edwin A. Goff, Caleb Hill, Hiram S. Holmes and Ezra Pike.
     
    My next project is a blog to discuss the interesting research into the headstone of Rosilyn, and to update my recent blog on photographer J. Harvey Phipps, husband of Fanny (Rhodes).
     
    As always, you can view the new postings from my "What's New" link:
    http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~sunnyann/whatsnew4.html
     
    Hope this finds everyone well, and enjoying a happy and healthy new year.  Look forward to hearing from each of you.  Thanks again to Nancy, JoAnn, Judith and Al for your input and access to your sources, and special thanks to Steve for all he's sent me and shared the last couple of months.

    To:Ullman, Judy
    Subject:Glen - comments that i gave Martha
    Date:Sat, Mar 9, 2013 1:06 am
    Judy - FYI, I gave Carol Pollio's sister Martha some notes the other day.
    Martha didn't know about the book until Christmas 2012.
    Glen


    3-6-13 Martha - I received Carol's book today.
    Reading a few pages now.  May I send you notes along the way?

    Maybe Carol will want to add a future Add-On to her book for updates.
    Here is some so far.

    Yes, i thought the same about josiah.  i had never heard of him.
    and found nothing.  Martha Pollio Eisenhour knew his death date.
    She is at   momeisen@yahoo.com

    She is new at genealogy.  she is the daughter of Carolyn Collerd,
    who was the dau of Mrs. Adelia Van Ness Collerd.  The book writer is the sister to Martha.

    1 - oh oh.  i just realized that there are no page numbers.
    so i will try to use the dates at top and place.

    2 - 2/1/1859 Montville - bottom page - george jacobus.
    He married 1/23/1859 at Montville Dutch ref ch.

    3 - 4/14/1866 NJ - Albert Miller writes Hennison several times.
    Or maybe the transcriber read it wrong.  It is Hennion.
    William Hennison is really William Norcross Hennion b-8/26/1794
    d-3/2/1866  married Julia Ann Ward on 1/3/1821.
    The death month matches up with Albert's letter.

    4 - 1/2/1869 pine brook nj
    Sarah references Anneka Jans property and the law suit.
    This was a big issue in it's day.  The case involved 62 acres in NYC.
    The Trinity Church was involved somehow in her property after death.
    Anneke Roelofs Jans Bogardus 1608-1663.
    I have heard of this case for ages.  Sounds like Henry Collerd felt thathe
    was in her genealogy.  I don't know.  I never went back that far forthat line.

    5 - sad book.  people wishing to be together but the timesprevented it.
    people looking to strike it rich, acquiring lots of land, and then not being
    happy about it, while they miss their relatives all the time.
    and then they die.


    6 - On leftpage with no date and right page is March 1877.
    I think the the blank date is 1884.
    there is a sentence that "Levi Stiles died New Years."
    He died 12-20-1883 in Montville, NJ.  buried at Vail Cemetery Parsippany.
    born 4/13/1796. The letter infers a date after New years 12-31-1883.
    So that would make this letter 1884 for sure but month i don't know.

    You will see his name a few times after this page.  saying that he isalive.
    so that confirms what i said about 1884.  you can also verify to his VailCem
    tombstone if you want.  Maybe "distant cousins" shows thetombstone??

    7 - FYI. 11-22-1878.  Mentions "Abbie" as wife of John WilsonVan Duyne.
    That would be Abigail Rintha Husk 9/8/1845-8/25/1878 dau of
    Abraham Husk and Esther Crane.

    8 - FYI page that says 1879
    Says Sally Davenport.  That would be Sally Maria Peer 11/19/1811-4/14/1879
    dau of Daniel T. Peer and Elizabeth Vreeland.
    she married George L. Davenport.

    9 - Same page.  Says "Louis was married".
    That is Lewis Van Duyne who lost his wife Anabella Walker 1857-1879.

    10 - the page on right "august 1880" is out of order.
    on left pageis 1882.  Just to let you know in case you do a second printing thing.

    11 - when did J. Z. Mourison die?
    It would have been good to have at front of book a "tree" of theplayers.
    And at the end, a list of who died when to show how they made out at the
    end of life.

    12 - FYI 10-27-1884.  Refers to Adeline and Madison.
    Adeline would be Mrs. Adeline Stiles Speer. 11/26/1815-11/23/1897.
    She is buried in front row of the FDRC.
    Next to dau Mary Speer who died 11/1863 and her son in law Joseph Baldwin.

     I don't know her parents names.
    I don't know who is Madison.  Maybe a sister??
    Adeline married William S. Speer, son of Peter Speer and Harriett Sanford.

    just in case you want to add as note.  general reader wont care, i guess.

    13 - Susan E. Jacobus is MRS.
    She was Mrs. Susan elizabeth collerd jacobus  sept 7-1818 to 1--6-1890.
    I will go with Eliza as her nickname per carol's booklet.

    14 - Effie.  I think this is EffieVan Duyne  born 1-21-1853 ofmontville nj
    daughter of john william van duyne and margaret kayhart.
    i don't know when effie died.
    she married john w. tout on 7-21-1870 at the montville dutch reformed church.
    Effie would have been 20 yrs old when she accompanied
    mrs. Sarah 'Sally' Mourison Collerd  to bergen county nj.

    15 - on 1/1874 bottom page.  note about mrs. MILLS.
    I have WILLIS.  i have john henry collerd marrying sarah willis.
    Her mother being lurenda hotchkiss who married william mitchell willis.
    Glen

    Subject: RE: duran or segar


    Hi Judy, I have a family history book that my mother had written by a distant relative living in the Britton, MI area. It is a history of the Mourison/Carman/Downing families (with some others). It appears that Wm was married to Mary Doran on Nov 2, 1820 and they had a daughter Sarah Catherine on Mar 21, 1821. It appears that she died soon after and Wm married Mary Segar. There is a lot of information in this book, with about 50 pgs dedicated to the Mourisons with some photos, wills, letters. If you would like me to scan and send to you, please let me know-I don't think I can attach anything within Ancestry messages. It seems to be very detailed going back to their ancestors in the mid 1600's

    Hello Judy!

    I received the DAR application today for Henry. It was submitted in 1978 from Emily Helen Morrison Wilson, Belleville, MI . She was b. 14 Sep 1920; m. 7 July 1951 to George Clair Wilson who was b. 28 May 1915 at Huron Twp. MI.

    This is her descendency:

    George Morrison, b. 26 July 1880, Dundee, MI, d. 16 Oct 1924, Dundee, MI; m. Birdie Cilley on 20 Sept 1915. She was b. 25 Aug 1880, Petersburg, MI, d. 18 Feb. 1974 at Ypsilanti, MI.

    George Morrison was the child of:

    Clarence Morrison, b. 28 June 1843, Montville, NJ, d. 23 Nov. 1928, Dundee, MI; m. Mary Price on 29 Nov 1866. She was b. 1848, England; d. 25 April 1895 at Dundee, MI.

    Clarence L. Morrison was the child of:

    William L. Morrison, b. 19 July 1800 in NJ, d. 16 Nov 1895 at Dundee, MI; m. Mary Doran on 21 Mar 1821. She was b. 6 Mar 1803 in England, d. 13 Nov 1866 at Dundee, MI.

    There is an astrick here saying:
    Baptism Records give name of William L. married wife as Mary Segar
    Bible Records give name of William L. Morrison wife as Mary Doran

    William L. Morrison was the child of:

    Henry Morrison, b. 30 June 1752, probably NJ, d. 18 Jan 1835 at Morris Co., NJ. He married Catherine Alyea on 14 May 1784. She was b. 10 May 1758 at (blank), d. 9 Aug 1850 at NJ.

    His service is just listed as soldier in NJ. It says Ancestor's services - (then in hand written it says: Data in FC). I have no idea what that means.

    Hello Judy!

    I received the DAR application today for Henry. It was submitted in 1978 from Emily Helen Morrison Wilson, Belleville, MI . She was b. 14 Sep 1920; m. 7 July 1951 to George Clair Wilson who was b. 28 May 1915 at Huron Twp. MI.

    This is her descendency:

    George Morrison, b. 26 July 1880, Dundee, MI, d. 16 Oct 1924, Dundee, MI; m. Birdie Cilley on 20 Sept 1915. She was b. 25 Aug 1880, Petersburg, MI, d. 18 Feb. 1974 at Ypsilanti, MI.

    George Morrison was the child of:

    Clarence Morrison, b. 28 June 1843, Montville, NJ, d. 23 Nov. 1928, Dundee, MI; m. Mary Price on 29 Nov 1866. She was b. 1848, England; d. 25 April 1895 at Dundee, MI.

    Clarence L. Morrison was the child of:

    William L. Morrison, b. 19 July 1800 in NJ, d. 16 Nov 1895 at Dundee, MI; m. Mary Doran on 21 Mar 1821. She was b. 6 Mar 1803 in England, d. 13 Nov 1866 at Dundee, MI.

    There is an astrick here saying:
    Baptism Records give name of William L. married wife as Mary Segar
    Bible Records give name of William L. Morrison wife as Mary Doran

      Hi Judy, I have a family history book that my mother had written by a distant relative living in the Britton, MI area. It is a history of the Mourison/Carman/Downing families (with some others). It appears that Wm was married to Mary Doran on Nov 2, 1820 and they had a daughter Sarah Catherine on Mar 21, 1821. It appears that she died soon after and Wm married Mary Segar. There is a lot of information in this book, with about 50 pgs dedicated to the Mourisons with some photos, wills, letters. If you would like me to scan and send to you, please let me know-I don't think I can attach anything within Ancestry messages. It seems to be very detailed going back to their ancestors in the mid 1600's
