Looking for descendants of Alexander Walker Morrow 1816 KY-1882 TX

Journal by vprovost

I had a pretty up to date genealogy for my great great grandfather Alexander
Walker Morrow of Woodford County KY - through both his wives: Mary Priscilla
Bohannon and Elvira Boyce Kuykendall, but all my records were destroyed or
water logged in 2005's Hurricane Rita. Fortunately, distant cousins I met
online sent me bits and pieces of stuff I'd sent them years ago. So I've
pieced together lots of what I had. I would be happy to share or trade infor=
mation with you - at least on deceased cousins - if you wanted more current
info, I'd check with the people in question to get their permission to share
their story....

AWM had 3 children with his first wife, and when she died his youngest was
just a baby. AWM left KY with his children and migrated to Georgetown TX
where his mother, Ann Walker, had moved to be with a daughter after Ann's
husband Samuel Morrow died. When he settled there in central Texas, he left
his baby daughter with his mother and sister, and he raised the older two.
Then he married a widow named Ellie Boyce Kuykendall, who had two children
of her own. Together they had 5 more children (one died in infancy). I am
a descendant of Walker & Ellie's 2nd child together
: Betty Morrow>Elliott Anderson>Mary Anderson>Virginia Bruce Provost.

AWM's 8 children were:
1. John who married a Houston
2. Sarah who married a Knight and moved to NM
3. Ann who married a Trull
++++++
4. Mary Belle (dy)
5. Bettie who married an Anderson
6. Sam who married a Sleighton and moved to NM
7. Will who married a Peoples
8. Joe who married a Keyworth

I've got a pretty good handle on all the children except Joe. He married Katy Keyworth and they had at least one son name Joseph Marion Morrow. The family lived in Galveston County and then moved somewhere else in Texas and sort
of disappeared. Joe was a bookkeeper. And that's all I know.
