1 (George)Lewis and Mary Salls are listed as founding members on the Methodist Episcopal Church in Alburg Center in 1856 and as Lewis and Mary Sarles in 1868. It appears their surname began to change during this period, from Salls to Sarles and ultimately to Searles. SALLS, George Lewis (I675)
2 1722: The LDS Church's International Genealogical Index states a woman named Magdalene HOPPER was married in Monaghan to Baptist GAMBLE of Crewe, possibly 1744; no parish given. It also shows a daughter was born in Monaghan to Magdalene HOPPER and Baptist GAMBLE (no child's name or parish given) in 1722. It is highly unlikely they would have had a daughter 22 years BEFORE they were married. Could 1722 have been a misreading of 1772? Is Magdalene UNKNOWN actually Magdalene GAMBLE? And is Magdalene GAMBLE the wife of Charles MORROW?

1851 CENSUS (Amherst Island, Reel C-11712, p. 3, taken in January 1852): Magdalon was a widow living with her grandson John MORROW, his second wife Catherine PRESHO and the children of his two marriages. She reported she would be 80 on her next birthday, was born in Ireland and attended the Church of England. Based on her age, she may have been born in 1772 (census taken in 1852 minus her reported age next birthday (80) = 1772).

UNKNOWN, Magdalene (I4239)
3 1733 graduated from Yale College. Cause of Death: Epidemic dysentery. LEETE, William (I5005)
4 1793 removed to Stanford Twp, Dutchess, NY. LEETE, John (I4990)

6 1807 - Sarah & her husband,Duncan, lived in Mapleton (Hoosick), New York. FOWLER, Sarah (I3054)
7 1807: A Mormon Church record seems to indicate John MORROW married Marsha HOPPER C. 1807, Co. Monaghan. (SOURCE: LDS Film No. 1985251: Official Temple Record for Deceased Individuals 1991; viewed at the LDS Family Search Website: However, the film does not cite any source to prove this, so the marriage report should be viewed with a degree of suspicion.

1814: The person registering their son John's death reported John had been born in Co. Monaghan. If so, then the Morrows were living there in 1814. Research is on-going.

1841: John Sr. bought the east half of Lot 9 and all of Lot 10, 1st Concession, Amherst Island, from Charles MORROW 02 September 1841. The transaction was recorded under Instrument No. 2328 on page 701 of Co. Addington Land Book G (Call No. LA 121, Queen's University Archives, Kingston, Ontario). Isaac Fraser and Daniel HOPPER signed as witnesses. (Research has not yet shown what relationship exists between Daniel HOPPER and Martha HOPPER.)

MORROW, John (I4223)
8 1811 removed to Separate, Stanford Twp, Dutchess Co., NY. DUDLEY, George Anson (I5127)
9 1813: John was born in County Monaghan, Ireland, according to his son Justus Morrow who gave this information on his father's 1889 death registration. However, this is secondary information; more research is still required to verify his place of origin. In his book AMHERST ISLAND LOYALIST LINKS (Kingston, 1987), Russ WALLER indicates John came from the Ards peninsula, County Down, Ireland, but offers no proof. (Other Morrows (relationship unknown) came out from Co. Monaghan in 1811. The ship AFRICA, under Captain John E. Scott, sailed from Belfast and arrived in New York harbour on June 9th, 1811. The three MORROWs on board - Ellen and two Janes - were all from Monaghan.)

1851: In the 1851 Census of Amherst Island (taken in 1852), John MORROW, age 40 next birthday, is living with his second wife Catherine, 21 next birthday, and three of his children by his first wife Jane KILPATRICK: Mary Jane, 7 next, Margerate [sic], 6 next and Charles, 4 next. Only little Sarah, age 1, is a child of the second marriage. Also living with them are Catherine's mother Jane PRESHO, a widow who would turn 56 at her next birthday, and John's grandmother, Magdalene MORROW, who would turn 80, also a widow. Ann Jane McKAY, 12 next birthday, is also there that day (no other information on her), along with two live-in labourers: Peel BURLEY, 16 next, and Thomas TAYLOR, 14 next.

1889: John died of paralysis of about 1 year. Headstone at St. John's, Bath, gives his age at death as 75 yrs, 6 mo producing a calculated birth year of 1814.

John MORROW's family appears in the Amherst Island Censuses of 1851 (p.3), 1861 (p.2), 1871 (p.59), 1881 (p.26), and 1891 (p.35).

Notes about the MORROW House: John MORROW built the beautiful old stone dwelling and carriage house at the west end of Amherst Island (Lot C, 1st Concession). In 1947, the house was purchased by Arthur Timbrell, an uncle of Ontario politician Dennis Timbrell. In the 1950s the house was sold to Charles and Elsie DENSEM. Elsie's antiques soon filled the house. Years later, she and the house were profiled in an article entitled Headstrong on Amherst Island in CITY AND COUNTRY HOME, a Canadian home decor magazine (March 1989, pgs. 68 - 73). The house now belongs to Brian and Carol Finlay (1992). Sally Bowen wrote a profile about Ralph MORROW for the 'Island History' column in the Amherst Island BEACON, May 2001, Issue 280, p.3. It included the fact that Ralph's grandfather's grandfather [John Morrow] built the beautiful stone MORROW homestead and carriage house, now owned by Bryan and Carol FINLAY at the Head.

12 1851: The 1851 census was actually taken in 1852. People were asked to provide the age they would be at their next birthday. Sarah would turn 1 in 1852, giving a possible birth year of 1851. (Reel C-11712)
