We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Morriston was located in Perry County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

Adding Morriston to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
That's the case with Morriston: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
