        Another thing to check to verify if these are different families...the dates the 1870 census was taken for each entry...may have been the family was on the move, and some who are listed as their children, are really other family/friends children.  Sometimes a person not related gives the information.

        If the dates are really close (within a week or so)...then you can say they are not the same Calvin.

          If you would like a copy of the Edward Morris of Sinking Cove research put together by Nancy Taylor from the documents in the Franklin County Archive, please contact her.  It includes information about Larkin and the various Calvin Thomas Morris.  She said it was ok to post her information.  Her booklet is $15 to cover the cost of printing/binding.  Well worth it!
