Will names wife Elizabeth, daughter Nancy in need of care, two oldest sons William and John, daughter Margaret (wife of Hazel Dickey), daughter Jane wife of James Davis, daughter Rebeccah, and sons Allen, Thomas, Arthur, and Joseph.
Son Joseph Morrow's will, dated 5 Apr 1816 and presented in the May term, in Rowan Co, NC, is consistent. It names mother Elizabeth, sisters Nancy Morrow, Jane Davis, Elizabeth Davis, and Rebecca Morrow, and brothers Allen, Thomas, Arthur, William. Nancy needed care by her mother and/or siblings. The will is consistent with all the siblings living in the same area at the time, as John, who had left the area, is missing.
