Notes for Chastine MORRISON

Much of the information about Timothy Morrison and his family is from a listing of births and deaths of the Morrison family in the handwriting of Mate Snow Thurtell written in the early 1930's with the annotation "The old family Bible was gone - no one knew anything about it. These names and dates were copied in the one Bible they have now." This sheet is in the possession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller. This sheet shows Chastine Morrison was born December 1, 1834. Records of the Groton Town Clerk, Caledonia County, Vermont, researched in 1997 for Susan Miller by Jim Dresser ( confirm Chastine Morrison was born December 1, 1834.

Other data bases show her name as Chestine or Christine.
