MORTON James Nottingham/Durham
Looking for relatives of James Morton who resided at No.9 Stretton Street,Union Road,Nottingham East around the year 1952.It's not known at this time,wether James was married,or had a family.
James was born in Gateshead Co Durham in 1913 the youngest of eight children of James and Hanna Morton nee Jackson.
Family history tells, that James senior,who was born in West Stanley, left his family in Gateshead and travelled to the U.S. or Canada after his wife Hannah died in 1914,to seek his fortune.He told his children that he would return for them once he was settled.They never heard from him again.
It wasn't until many years later that his grandson found out through research that James had returned to England and had gone to live with his son James in Nottingham,and had passed away in 1952.
Another family story about James sr.is that his brother Thomas Morton travelled to Canada in 1929 and met up with James in Alberta.After Thomas returned to Durham 6 months later,he lost touch with his brother James.
