A Samuel Morris was born about 1808 in Ireland according to the US Census of Wisconsin in 1960.
MARRIAGE AND FAMILY
It was calculated in 2020 that Samuel Morris married Mary Ann [unknown maiden name as of 2022]. Her married name was on an 1851 ship manifest that described a family: Mary Ann Maurice (probably variant of Morris) and son, Alexander, and daughter Mary J(ane).
Samuel Morris' name was not on the same ship manifest in any variant in 1851. He probably left Ireland before or after his wife's and children's emigration in 1851.
A Samuel Morris (age 52) resided with an Alexander (age 16) in Wisconsin in 1860 according to the Census that year.
Samuel Morris's wife probably died before 1860, because she was not reported in Census 1860. Samuel Morris's daughter, Mary Jane, age 14 in 1860, may have married or begun employment as a servant somewhere in the USA.
Samuel Morris probably died shortly after 1860, because in 1875 Alexander was in Michigan with his bride, Phoebe Wright.
The burial site of Samuel Morris was unknown as of 2022. Although it is calculated that he died in Wisconsin, no death or burial record had been found as of 2022.
