Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Susan C Morrison {Gen 4}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Susan C Morrison (Gwyn Morrison, Esther, William, William) was born in Grimes Co, Texas, mid August 1849, to parents Gwyn Morrison and Sarah Ann Roberts.

Susan married John F Whiteside (1848-1896) November 1st 1871 in Grimes Co, Texas.

The couple had at least 3 children:

  • Anna E Whiteside b. 25 Feb 1874 d. 20 Aug 1942 m. (1)William F Duer (2) C. Cleveland
  • John H Whiteside b. 20 Dec 1875 d. 1 Apr 1880 in childhood
  • Frank G Whiteside b. 7 Feb 1888 d. 21 Apr 1968 m. May Belle Massey

John Whiteside was a farmer and rancher in Brazoria Co, Texas. Susan was a farmer's wife. Not much is know of this family, their first two children were born shortly after their marriage, the third known child was born 13 years later. There may have been more children born to this couple. John's will listed two living children.

Susan Morrison Whiteside died January 27th 1893 at the age of 43. Her youngest child, Frank, was just 5 years old. She is buried in Hempstead Cemetery in Hempstead, Waller Co, Texas.

John Whiteside died 3 years later on  January 12th 1896 at the age of 48. John is buried alongside his wife in the Hempstead Cemetery. 

Frank G Whiteside was sent to live with his uncle James Whiteside and family.
