Can I presume you have done a site search for Morrison and other names?

I have a Martha Morrison in my tree - not your Martha, her dates are
1810-1891. She married John Torrance - my g.g.grandfather. My own g.father
was John Morrison Torrens.

But there is, in the Morrison bit of the tree, a William - about whom I
know very little. Not even his dates, but I would guess birth around 1900,
1920 period. You give no useful dates....

Morrison does occur in other trees not yet connected to.
