On the 1874 Adams Twp. map W & J Morrison own an 160, SE 1/4 of Sec 6. On the 1887 Adams Twp map Wm Morrison owns the N1/2 of SE 1/4 Sec 6 (80 acres) and W J White owns the other 80. And of Course James Morrison owns the 160 NW 1/4 of Sec 11 "the home place". Merle thinks that the W & J of 1874 map are Wm and James our relatives. Lyman think that it stands for William and Jennie. This is backed up by the fact that Jennie is listed as the owner of the real estate in the 1870 census.
