Okay, if you are not sitting down, please find a comfortable chair..........most of us are sitting down at the computer I would imagine. Get out the smelling salts, I guarantee this is going to be a jolt. When I found this, I let out a shriek.....you will see what I mean.
I happen to be looking for some things on Clara Clark Morrison because Jim told me his mother was Scots-Irish and Jim also told me he was Scottish on his father's side plus he had English, Welsh, Irish and could even trace his ancestry to Europe which he said could be Dutch or German.
What I found was on ancestry.com This is a picture of Stephen Morrison, who is the great, great grandfather of Jim.
Stephen died suddenly and unexpectedly of a raptured vessel. I found two listings for the date of his death...March 9, 1867 and then July 6, 1867. http://www.wargs.com...r/morrison.html
I have no words to express .....the picture of Jim's great, great grandfather says it all. 117 years later and it's virtually the same genetic blueprint. And if indeed with his sudden death at July 6, they would have died 104 years and 3 days apart.
I off to get a few shots of Seagrams after viewing this.
Jim would have loved seeing this picture!
