  1. I have heard that Archibald Morrison was born in Argyll Scotland, 1823 and was in the 1841 Census -Midlothian, Scotland and 1851 Census living in Hull.
    The only hit I could find in IGI was
    Archibald Morison B: 27 Apr 1823 CH: 08 Aug 1823 Kilfinan, Argyll. Do you have any idea if this is true?
    Just a stab in the dark…..

  2. He might have been born in Argyle, but on every document I have found he says Edinburgh and there was an Archibald Morrison born in Edinburgh to a Thomas and Janet that year. Having said that people didn’t always know where they were born so opted for the first place they could remember.

    I did find an Archibald Morrison of the right age born in Argyle, but tracking him forward he became a minister, married a woman called Sarah from Hertfordshire and went to live in Gloucestershire, so I’m guessing that’s not our Archibald.

    Ooh, I hope I haven’t gone and traced the wrong family. I suppose it would help if they had been a bit more imaginative about forenames – the same 4 or 5 turn up again and again.

  3. I can’t find david morrison born scotland in 1823. he came to america about 25 years of age. there are so many david morrisons, for that matter so many morrisons. John morrrison is the son of david. i know he was born in 1860 illinois usa. i see in few places on ancestry search davids father was archibald morrison,but not sure.
