Facts and Events
It was thought that perhaps this Joseph was the son of Family:David Morrow and Agnes White (1), because it fits the timing and placement for the Joseph that ended up in Georgia. Various sources say that Peter Gilliam’s daughters married cousins (Joseph and Ewing), but that is not terribly specific.
However, DNA testing of a descendant of William Clarence Morrow DOES NOT MATCH other descendants of David and Agnes. William is fairly certainly the son of Joseph E. Morrow and Eliza Jane Walker, based on census records showing him with them in 1850, and his later proximity to his mother in 1870. Joseph E. is supposed to be Joseph's son by Ruth Black Brown, which is supported by the fact that they lived next door to each other in 1850.
