      James Morrow's first wife was Sarah Stevenson the daughter of John Stevenson who died in 1796 in Pendleton District, South Carolina. they were married some time before 1796 in Pendleton District South Carolina). Page 108 Pendleton District South Carolina Wills; James Morrow and Sarah Morrow were listed as Purchasers of the Estate of John Stevenson, also listed were James Stevenson (an Elder at Roberts Church c.a. 1820) and R. Stevenson, Alexander Stevenson Admr. February 23, 1797.

      In 1810 James was living in the Pendleton District, South Carolina, from this census shows that James' wife was not shown but by 1811 James had remarried to Catharine. 1818 is the year that James and his family moved to Georgia, into a part of the state that was then Franklin county and buying 240 acres of land along the Hutton River.

      In the 1819 tax records of Franklin County, it shows that John Morrow and William M.C. Taylor were living on land owned by James Morrow.

      In the 1820 census record shows that they were living in Captain Boswell district of Franklin County, Georgia.

      By the 1821 tax records it shows Samuel Morrow was at a taxable age and living with James Morrow, also that year the tax records show that his land borders the lands of James Lowery, Mr. Mackey, Mr. Parks, and the Hudson River. In 1822 it shows just James, his wife, and children were living there.

      In 1823 Samuel Morrow paid the taxes for James Morrow who it states that he was living in Henry County, Georgia in the 219th district. This is where I found him on record as being the Justice of the Peace in 1823.

      James was listed on the 1827 Gold land lottery of Coweta County, Georgia (This area was later Haralson County) in Captain Atkinson's district Lot 690, section 37, district 20. But James did not pay for this until 1846, at which time he was living there. In 1830 Habersham County, Georgia census it shows that James and Catherine had seven sons, and three daughters, by the indication of the 1830 census they were living probably on Andrew Elliot's land (December 12, 1815 Catharine Shoemaker married James Morrow By David Elliott Doctor of Divinity). Then in 1840 James and Catharine were living in Floyd County, Georgia, and they only had three of their ten children living with them.

      Records show that James and his son all traded at George Lanvenders Trading Post in the southern part of Floyd County, Georgia between 1840, and 1845.

      James, Catherine, and some of their children moved to Randolph County, Alabama settling into an area of the county that was once Indian Creek land. This area was called Rockdale Community. On June 3, 1853 James Morrow was on a list of Scholars at the Sabbath School in Wedowee, (Randolph County) Alabama. James died sometime after this, and his wife Catherine died after 1870.

      It was said that James was one of the first persons to be buried at Mount Prospect Baptist Church shortly after the first Church was built. [2]
