34 Descendants of Marion Mitchell Morrison [1845​—​1915]

2011-08-04 17:42:32


This is the family of the movie star, John Wayne. He was named Marion Robert Morrison, but after his brother was born his middle name was changed to Michael. He later adopted John Wayne as his stage name.

I have tried to use birth names where these are known to me, otherwise stage names are used. The Annex will have both forms.

Tommy Morrison, the boxer, is widely claimed to be John Wayne's grandnephew, but I have been unable to find that trail. Specifically, I can find no evidence that John Wayne's only sibling, producer Robert Emmett Morrison ever married or had children!
