This is also the story of all the ancestors and relatives of my grandmother Mary Teresa (Shannon) Morrison Here is a county outline map of Ireland showing the approximate locations of the origins of my grandmother's ancestors. The records used to assemble the families here come from a wide variety of sources. It started with a large core of family records maintained by my grandmother, Mary Teresa (Shannon) Morrison, and her sister, Regina (Shannon) Smith. Also, a few pages listing a lot of the Farrell descendents was assembled in the 1960s. My uncle, Lyman Morrison, computerized all that information and greatly expanded it. He and I have used a large number of records to expand upon the descendents, including census records, obituaries, county vital records, cemetery records, and a lot of information from other relatives we've found along the way.
There is also information on an auxilliary Shannon branch
who are related, but slightly more distantly. These Shannons came from Co. Clare
to primarily the Chicago area in the 2nd half of the 19th century.
Nearly all the information on them comes from a descendent, Mary (Shannon) Flood.
I now have information about relatives of my maternal grandfather, Forrest Morrsion, on the WWW also. This has been gathered from a wide variety of sources, too numerous to mention here. This includes surnames Morrison, Morgan, Matthews, Ballard, White, Hoge, Hume, Scott, and others. These are indexed separately from the above Irish ancestors of my grandmother.
