Other facts


Also Known As2: Melisie Sarah Morrison.2


  • The actual spelling of Melisa's name was probably Melissa.  I have found her documented only in the 1900 census so far (October 2007). I have not found death information for Melissa.  The Fain genealogy which reports her birth information has nothing on her death.  But she died between the 1920 and 1930 censuses.  John is reported as a widower in the 1930 census.

    Her marriage record has only here initials M S Morrison.
