DNA of descendant matches 25/25 with descendants of David m. Margaret Kelso and Thomas m. Janet McCarter, also considered sons of David m. Agnes.

Thought he was born in Ireland in 1760 (see below), but one researcher notes that he “appeared to be somewhat senile” when he made that statement in 1832.

From Janean Ray:

A revolutionary soldier, severely wounded at the battle of Hanging Rock. Applied for a pension 19 Dec 1832 due to the injury he suffered at the battle of Hanging Rock, at which time it was believed, him to be 72 yrs of age. In this document, he states, "I was born, as I have been told, in the kingdome of Ireland, County of Antrim, in the year 1760"....."I have no record of my age"...."I was living in the State of South Carolina, then Craven County, now Chester District when called into service and have lived in the same plave ever since, and live there now,"....etc.

Joseph Morrow made a will, dated 8-2-1831, which was probated 12-1-1835, in which he names his wife, Jane; and his four daughters: Sarah White, Betsey Wylie, Jane Wylie, and Polly Thomas; sons: Joseph Morrow, William W. Morrow, and David Morrow. (a son, John is not named in the will, but family members list such a son, who may have married prior to the will and settlement aready made with him).

In his will he stated that his son, Joseph Morrow (Jr.) was to receive "the west end or side of my plantation......" "provided he, the said Joseph Morrow provides his mother, Jane, with a comfortable support during her natural life, either with him or with any of her other children she chooses to live with or where she chooses to live and to support her horse beast if she chooses to keep one."
