James C. Morrison is the father-in-law of my maternal Aunt, Joan Esther Milne Morrison.  He was born in Canada about 1886 and immigrated to the United States, according to the 1930 federal census, in 1910.  He and his wife, Edna Amanda Gleason were married 14 Sep 1910 in St. Mary’s, Perth, Ontario, Canada.  Together they had only one child that I know of, Raymond Gleason Morrison born 25 May 1912 in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan.

This is a branch of the family that needs more of my attention.  I do have records indicating that James’ parents were William Morrison and Mary A. Beatty.

James C. Morrison is buried at Grand Lawn Cemetery in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan.  Many of my ancestors are resting at Grand Lawn.  You may visit his FindAGrave memorial here #184363280.

If you are related to this family, please contact me.  I’d love to hear from you.

Happy hunting,

Michigan Girl
