The Morris family of Philadelphia, descendants of Anthony Morris, born 1654-1721 died 1 edition
"The Morris Family of Philadelphia is a monumental work. No space at our command can commence to do it justice. The three volumes represent an amount of scholarly research that is simply appalling. Dr. Moon has accomplished his labors in a manner that easily places him among the first American genealogists and has produced a work which he and the various members and connections of the Morris family may always regard with honest pride.
Anthony Morris of Reading, England and subsequently of Barbados was born about 1600. His son Anthony mariner of Old Gravel Lane Parish Stepney, London was born about 1630 and married, probably in 1653 or possibly earlier, Elizabeth Senior.
His son Anthony, the first of the family in America, was born in London in 1654 and died in Philadelphia in 1721. He married the following wives;
· First in London in 1676 Mary Jones who died in Philadelphia in 1688;
· Secondly at Philadelphia in 1689, Agnes Bom, widow of Cornelius Bom, who died in 1692;
· Thirdly in 1694 at Newport RI, Mary Howard widow of Thomas Coddington and daughter of John Howard of Yorkshire England, who died in 1699; and
· Fourthly in 1700 at Philadelphia Elizabeth Watson daughter of Luke and Sarah Watson who died in 1767 in her 94th year.
By his first wife he had seven children born between 1677 and 1688; by his second none; by his third, three, born between 1695 and 1699; and by his fourth, five, born between 1701 and 1717.
The work is literally crowded with reproductions of old documents, maps, relics, portraits etc. etc., illustrative of the family history."
