Historical research compiled by Judy Sacco. 

During my marriage to Jim Morrison,s sister Anne, nobody in the family ever spoke about the genealogy of the Morrison family. The only two things I do remember is a half joking reference to being direct descendants of Robert The Bruce, and the other was once when Andy Morrison and I were discussing the family tree, he said. ” I think my ancestors were from the Outer Hebrides in the north of Scotland or somewhere like that”. That was the extent of his knowledge or interest in the subject.

Indeed he was right, the Morrison clan  was established by Alexander Morrison of Lewis, North Scotland. He was born in 1750.  He arrived in America on April 1, 1781 and settled in Hagerstown, Maryland.

The Morrison family was established by Alexander Morrison of Lewis, North Scotland. He was born in 1750.
 
He arrived in America on April 1, 1781 and settled in Hagerstown, Maryland. It does not list Alexander’s wife’s name, but it does list 3 of his sons: John Morrison b. abt 1780 in Lewis Scotland d. about 1863.
 William Morrison b. May 15, 1781 d. May 2, 1867 
 Allen Morrison (Not married)

Stephen Morrison was the maternal uncle of Arthur Kelty and William Morrison Cleeland, and the paternal uncle of Hosea, William J, and Thomas C. Morrison. He was the youngest son of William Morrison and Sarah Slemmons, whose father Robert Slemmons was a Revolutionary War soldier.  Stephen was born 3 Apr 1826. He was most likely born in Connoquenessing Township, Butler County, PA, since his father William was listed in the township tax records during that time. Sometime before 1850, Stephen married Lydia Emerson. Stephen Morrison was an educator, and was elected School Superintendent by the school directors of Lawrence County, PA.  He served that post from 1860-1866. His Civil War experience [1] was that of a Pvt. in Company E, 55th Regiment Militia. The 55th Regiment mustered in June 27 – July 11, 1863, and was discharged July 18 and August 26, 1863. The 55th had service in Pennsylvania during Lee’s Invasion.

Lawrence Journal, Newcastle , Pennsylvania , Saturday, March 9, 1867:

Died Suddenly 
We regret to state that Mr. Stephen Morrison of Neshannock Township, late county Superintendent of Common Schools of this county died suddenly on Wednesday morning last. His father has been very poorly for some time, and on that morning Mr. Morrison received a message to go and see his father. He started, and while on the way, which was but a short distance, he ruptured a blood vessel—he was found before life was extinct, laying on the road, but he died in a few minutes after being taken up from the ground.

One of Stephen Morrison’s nephews, S. S. Boston (the son of his sister Maria and John Boston), was one of Stephen’s teachers at the Common School in Neshannock Township in Lawrence County, PA.

William Morrison Cleeland
The “Morrision Cleeland” in the photo is the William Cleeland / W. M. Cleeland who is listed on the National Parks Service Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System as being with Company G of the 155th Regiment, Pennsylvania Infantry, and who is also listed as William M. Cleeland with the 2nd Battalion, Veteran Reserve Corps. According to page 822 of the book “History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-5”, William Cleeland was mustered into service with the 155th regiment on August 22, 1862, served in Company G, transferred to the 2nd Battalion, Veteran Reserve Corps on July 1, 1863 and was discharged on June 24, 1865. The Veteran Reserve Corps was originally called the Invalid Corps.

    Ah, I knew Alan Graham was the first with this – just as his photograph of Anne, Jim and Dylan at Ray Manzarek’s house belonged to Alan, although so many others have claimed it over the years.

    Hey, Kimberley, I follow your wonderful periodical! Fantastic job you are doing!!

    I hope all is well with you and Alan.

    Miss you loads!

    amazing job

  4. Rachael Calhoun says:

    I read that Jim Morrison’s 8th great-grandfather was Sir John Colquhoun, the 16th chief of the Colquhoun Clan. Also, that his 4th great-grandmother was an Abigail Cahoon? Do you know if these stories are true and if there is an article about it? Thanks,
    Rachael
