Documentation:
John Morris and his wife Sarah Franklin White were early
settlers of Franklin County, Georgia.  Most of the Birth, Death and
Marriage dates comes from the John Martin White Family Bible. (John
Martin White was the father of Sarah Franklin White). Some dates differ
slightly in other sources and this is probably due to transcription
mistakes.  John Morris left a will dated 1831 in which he named all of
his children.  The White family bible was listed in the Georgia
Genealogist and the original is supposed to be at the Virginia Historical
Society in Richmond, Virginia.
