      -------------------
      James T. Morrison biography (images saved) indicates that a Morrison family of Londonderry, Ireland included a James Morrison (1778-1855), who emigrated to America, and finally settled in Wilmington where he engaged in various pursuits. James married Maria Griffin of Philadelphia, and one of their sons was Thomas Culbert Morrison (1823-1883) buried in Wilmington & Brandywine Cemetery [ref. death certificate, image filed]. There was also a Moses Morrison (1788-1829) also buried in this cemetery, reportedly a brother of Robert Morrison (1777-1848), also buried in this cemetery. He married Elizabeth Maxwell and they had among others a son, Moses Morrison (1817-1888).

      Also, a Thomas Morrison witnessed the naturalization of John Culbert in 1830 in Wilmington, and is likely to be John's father-in-law. [see James John Culbert]
