     James Morrison Jr. was born on 11 July 1778 in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of James Morrison and Margaret Rice.1 He married Abigail Murdock(?)1 He died on 25 October 1854 in Conewango Township, Warren County, Pennsylvania, at age 76.1 He was buried in Oakland Cemetery, Warren, Warren County, Pennsylvania.2
     James was an expert mechanic and in 1798 was engaged by Cornplanter, the Seneca Indian Chief, to erect a mill at State Line and was taken by him with a party of Indians by canoe to the proposed location. Not being able to reach their destination the same day, they camped for the night on an island in the Allegheny River at Kinzue. James explored the island and found it to be one of the broadest and most fertile island that they had passed. Also there was a natural spring of pure ice cold water on the island. After the mill was completed he returned the same way and camped again on the island. A second survey only confirmed his good opinion of it as a desirable place. Two years later in 1800, he made an application to Harrisburg for a patent which was granted him at a price of twenty-five cents an acre. [This may have been the island that his father owned or lived. It would seem that he may have given the place to his father because it seems that he himself never claimed ownership of it.]1 James Morrison Jr. had settled in Warren County, Pennsylvania by 1806. In that year, James was taxed for 183 acres, 2 cows, 2 oxen, and 1/3 of a sawmill which he apparently owned with his brother Samuel Morrison and a Jeremiah Morrison.3 He was taxed for 65 acres and a lot in the city of Warren in 1808. The land in lower Warren, known as Morrison's Flats was purchased by him in 1813. He built a large house there which stood 125 feet southwest of the intersection of Morrison Street and Levee Street.1 Apparently the land James owned was located in Conewango Township, Warren County, Pennsylvania. He and his wife spent the rest of their lives in Conewango Township.4
