- Since I posted the message below about my dad, uncles & grandfather
having blue eyes, I looked back at a picture of my great-grandfather
Josiah Morefield and a picture of who I *think* is my
great-great-grandfather Josiah Morefield (I). Obviously, the
pictures are in black and white, but it's equally obvious that both
men had light-colored eyes. The line is
Edward>Wright>William>Allen>Josiah I>Josiah II>Roy Marcus>Joseph
William (my dad).
