Note on Husband: James Kent MORRIS

By the dates of baptism and information from the censuses, it seems that James Kent Morris married Sarah Jones and had four children with her. Sarah appears to have died at the same time as the birth of her last daughter, Fanny - possibly in childbirth.

After Sarah's death, James had three children with Sarah's sister, Elizabeth, although there is no record of a marriage.
