A funeral card from a family member lists date of death as:
Francis Marion Morris
d 8 Feb 1881 ae 52y 11m 6d

This translates as dob 3 Feb 1828.

He was in Wood County in 1880 and I suspect he died there. The family was in Oklahoma in 1895, but we lost track of them for 15 years.

Francis Marion Morris' wife, Nancy Sarah Jane Tanner Morris is buried at Norton Cemetery, Johnston Co., OK d. 1895. There is no indication he is buried there; most graves in the cemetery do not pre-date 1890.

Any leads would be helpful.
