James B. Morris was my g-grandfather. I never knew my grandfather Gus Morris he died when my father was only 2 years old.
James is listed in 1870 census in Christain Co Ky 1880 in Trigg co With his Mother, and three sisters Nancy, Mary and Rosa Lee two brothers John Morris and Thomas Henry Morris.
I have never been able to track James B. Morris at all.
What I know
Hen married Rachel Cherry in 1887 they had three known children Gus (Also seen he signed a death certificate as G.D.Morris). Mary Morris who is listed in 1910 as MAry Pollard (married Lee Pollard in Caldwell Co Ky 1907) And Charlie (Charles Henry ) Morris.
James B. Morris married Virginia MIldred Hobson a widower . Virginia's maiden name was Perry. James married her in 1913.
Rachel Cherry Morris died in 1914. James wife Virginia Mildred died in 1920 after the census .
I am not able to connect James to any Morris family.
What I know
1.RosaLee Morris married John STREMBER
2.Thomas Morris married Sarah Finley
3.John Morris died 1947 in Trigg co Ky buried in Evansville Indiana, married twice Martha Nichols they had three daughters 2. Anna they had four sons, Hyland (Highland), Hebert, Carl and Clarence.
When John died it listed his brother Thomas still living In Ky and sister Rosa Lee She was in Nebraska .
When Thomas died 1960 it listed Hebert Morris, two nieces Laura Hurt and Lucy Hurt (both married Hurts). Nephew Curtis Harrell and a few other Harrells. But checking the Harrells to see where they fit in I could not find the answer. The Harrells were all children of Robert Odis Harrell and Otis Frances Elkins.
I wonder could James B. Morris have been marrried before Rache Cherry? Does anyone know what happen to him?
