I cannot answer your question directly but this may narrow your search.  If Morris is part of the family also known as Charkin, there are many indications on Ancestry UK that they came from Yampol/Yampil which is on the current western border of Ukraine.  The river in question is the Dniester.  Coincidentally, I once overheard a conversation in which a member of what I presume is part of your extended family, said that they came from somewhere near the Dneiper river but I think Dniester is more likely.
