Looking for death dates for a couple of residents-MORTON

I am looking for the death dates of two brothers. Their names are

Jacob Morton born abt 1801 in Maine. He was living in Reddish, Lewis County, Missouri in the 1880 census and had been a resident of the county in the 1870, 1860, and the 1850 censuses as well. I figure that he had been in the area since the birth of his daughter Matilda in 1839. I figure that he must have died in the 1880's sometime because he is not in the 1900 census and that in 1880 he was about 79 years old at the time of the census

The second brother is Gilkey Morton. He was also born in Maine on May 8, 1814. He was a lot more mobile than his brother was as I have found him living in Huron County, Ohio in the 1830's, Muskingum County, Ohio in 1840, and finally in Lewis County, Missouri in the 1860, 1870, and the 1880 censuses.

They also had a sister who resided in Lewis County in 1870. Would be interested in knowing if her husband, William Lovell died in Lewis County, since he was dead at the time of the 1880 census.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I would also love to correspond with other MORTON descendents and would be happy to share.
