Morton Family
« on: Saturday 04 June 16 13:49 BST (UK) »
I would be most interested in finding out any information on my elusive family members:
David Morton from Cormeen, Killylea who died in 1807. David had at least two sons , Thomas who married Mary Kane and John who married Jane Lawson. They were Presbyterians.
Many thanks for any information anyone is able to give me.

if you want to see Cormeen road, or Drumacanver road Co Armagh as a streetscene see https://www.google.co.uk/maps/  this fun and informative if you donít know the area particularly if you have found the homestead on the 1860ish map

Again, thank you so much!
That has now led me to a Baptiste Morton who died in 1851. Seems to be another brother of Charles Morton who died in 1861. This seems to be a very unusual name? As yet I can't find any information on him.

Where would I look to find out any information about a David Morton who was living at Manooney, Tynan, County Armagh in the year 1856? My ggg grandfather died in this home and I believe the above may be related to him as there is a name connection.
Many thanks for any help given.
