Looking for any info on Rev. Joseph Walter Morrishow (1875)(Bethel AME Church, Morrestown, NJ), John Alfred Morrishow (1877)(St. Kitts/NYC), George Morrishow (1886)(Cayon, St. Kitts), Herbert M. Morrishow (1886)(Wilberforce, OH), or Herbert Morrishow (1897)(Philadelphia, PA). Herbert M moved from Ohio to Philadelphia and lived around the corner from Herbert. My research shows they all have a connection to St. Kitts and all lived within 100 miles of eachother. Since the Morrishow name is so odd there is a really good chance that there is a relationship between them. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

This query may also be related to a Marrishaw or Marrishow individual or family I was aware of in Barbados while growing up. Worth investigating...

I would check also the French name "Marucheau" which appears in Saint Lucia, Guadeloupe and Grenada.

Usually spelled Marischeau or Marescheau on Grenada.
