Where Are These Bad MORRIS Boys?
After 1880 census cannot locate two brothers who have recorded history of problems with the law in Nodaway Co.,MO. Did they change their names, and/or eventually go to prison:

MARSHALL Oliver MORRIS or Oliver Marshall MORRIS born c 1869 in Nodaway, and George MORRIS born 1871 Nodaway Co., MO
Their parents were Thomas MORRIS, and Kitty Ann (BAKER) MORRIS

Their grandfather was James MORRIS who died 24, Dec 1879. He left them property, which they were to receive when they became of age. Haven't found record of land transfer yet. This probably would have been around 1891. George was still in Nodaway, under arrest, on 28 January 1892 and Marshall was there 23rd day of November 1887

Any help will be appreciated, especially if you have access to land records and prison records.
Thanks in advance,
