Looking for mother and father to James Morrison 1757-1840 Cumberland, Pennsylvania thought to have come over from Scotland in about 1740-1750. I am stuck.

The more sources you use, the more questions are created; here are two different answers to your query:

Answer #1 (Source "Our Family Tree")-
Gen 1 - John Morrison (1650-2/16/1736) + Jeanette Steele (1654-2/1736)
Gen 2 - James Morrison (b 1677 Ireland -3/5/1710) + Mary Gilmour James Morrison
Gen 3 - James Morrison (1702-3/19 1779) + 3 wives : Mary Newlin, Mary McMackin, Eleanor Snoody
Gen 4 - James Morrison (1757-5/19/1840)

Answer #2 (Source "Family Search")
Gen 1 - "Charter" James Morrison (1678-1776) + Mary Wallace (1675-1699) --- "Charter" refers to founding father of Londonderry, New Hampshire
Gen 2 - James Morrison (5/2/1694-5/15/1778) +Janet Steele (b 1679)
Gen 3 - James Morrison (1728-1779) + Mary Newlin --- Note difference in James' birth year
Gen 4 - James Morrison (1757-5/19/1840)

I have many of these same Morrisons in my family tree. I hope this helps - you may want to toss a coin to determine the one you want to use.
