I have found your website very interesting indeed and I have learned such a lot which I can add to
the information I already have. Mary Aminda (Minnie) MORSE was my Great Grandmother and Sidney Harry MORRIS was my Grandfather. I grew up in Yorkley, living next door to Cameron Riley Johnson, and
knew him as Uncle Cam and his wife as Auntie Ethel.

Thanks for getting in
It is great to hear from you and to be able to

I'm sure that this will not be the last message
to pass between us.
First of all many thanks for getting in touch, it is always very
special to hear from ‘family’.
I am so pleased that you found an interest in my family website, I
feel quite a responsibility in recording what I know and then sharing it with those who may be interested.
I love the fact that you have visited the Forest and not only
found ‘the mine’ but also went through it. My Father was a ‘free miner’ in the early c20th and indeed his father in law (1st marriage) was killed in their mine.
My disappointment in replying to your message that I cannot add to
Janet and Robin’s research in filling the gaps in your tree. In fact, had you contacted me without mentioning the names of Janet and Robin then I would have pointed you in their
The ‘Forest of Dean’ is perhaps my favourite part of the world and
I am so pleased that you have found time to visit, it is very significant to the wider Morse family.
Many thanks again for contacting me, it made today quite
