John Dee Morris died in April, 1910, Roxboro, Person County, NC. Based upon info from 1900 and 1910 census, plus the newspaper obituary of the day, he was born June, 1868/1869, in Chapel Hill, Orange County, NC. He was a Baptist at Roxboro. His father was still living in April, 1910, (perhaps in Chapel Hill) as it was mentioned in the newspaper that he came to Roxboro for the funeral (unfortunately did not name the father). John Dee Morris married in Roxboro Sallie Susan Street...he was a druggist there, and also founded the Morris Telephone Company in Roxboro. Any information about John Dee Morris, born as per above, greatly appreciated. Bruce.
