Hello Ross

I see that WHOLOHAN is a south Wales surname so do you have any evidence that your couple have a connection with Shropshire?  Also, when and where did they marry?

Hello Ross

What was the date of birth of William MORRIS? Do you have anything to say where in Shropshire he was born or where he was living at the time he emigrated? Have you found him in the 1841, 1851 or 1861 UK census?
