Morehouse Family of West Virginia

First Generation

William and Elizabeth Ives Morehouse appear in the 1850 census in Jackson Co. VA (now WV) with a large family. All but the youngest, Caroline, are listed as born in New York, as was William. Elizabeth was born in Vermont. The family below is reconstructed based primarily on the 1850-1870 census records.
