Thomas Morton, Cluff Ward reel 025865

This is a copy of letter I received from Kathy Taylor, descendant of Thomas Morton:

Billy,
I only have an estimated death date of bef 1832.  I don't know why it shows just the year and not before.  Since Mary was remarried in 1832, I had the date in my file as a place setter.  This was an old Ancestral File submission.  Beth White has done most of the research on the family.  I got the information from her. 
 
I do have census records for 1841 and 1851 showing Thomas in the family with John and Mary Wardle.  I also have a copy of Thomas and Mary Ann's marriage certificate, listing William as Thomas' father.  I have enclosed the census images in a Word document for you.
 
Thomas belonged to Whitwick branch, baptized in 1847 by Henry Platts. Whitwick Branch records film # 087038, Thomas was ordained Elder by William Bowen Cluff Ward records # 025863.

I am also posting a scan of the reel with Thomas' information.  According to this Thomas was baptized 1847 by Lawrence Platts in Whitwick.  He passed away Jane 11 1911.  This also indicates his son, Herbert, was not a member.  That is why he is circled.

  1. Iva Wardle Beckstead In this post whoever sent you the information mentioned that she has the marriage certificate for Thomas's parents William and Mary Kinston Morton. Could you post that in your blog as well? I think her name was Kathy Taylor. Thanks.

  2. I don't have a marriage certificate for Thomas' parents: William Morton and Mary Kinston. I only have a copy of the marriage certificate for Thomas and Mary Ann Price. It states that William is Thomas' father. - Kathy Morton Taylor
