The Morris branch of my family tree (mother's side) can be traced back to 1575 with the birth of  William
Morris (13)
 in Trintern (many different spellings), Monmouth, Wales, England. I don't have as many
dates and facts as I would like this far back, so I will start with what I know to be fact. I will go back and
add more info once I have it verified with documentation. The numbers in parenthesis represent the
generation back from my son, him being the 1st (1).
