JEROME MORRIS
Sunday afternoon, Oct. 29, 1933, about 3 o’clock, the automobile in which Jerome Morris was riding was pushed too near the side of the road by another car and was suddenly upset, instantly killing Jerome, but not seriously hurting any of the other occupants. Jerome will be remembered by many who knew him when he lived here and went to school. He will also be remembered as the boy who said a fine recitation at county Sunday-school convention, which made quite an impression upon the audience. He was a boy of more than ordinary talent, possessing rare qualities of the higher and nobler things of life. He would never condescend to do anything that was not right. Whenever he was in a crowd where boys would differ and begin to get angry, he would speak out and stop it in some way. He married a beautiful girl in Morgantown, W. Va. whose name was Thelma Conner. To that union three children were born, Richard Jerome, Dale and Barbara. May the good Lord ever care for them. It was somewhat singular that he was buried on his 23d birthday in the presence of a large concourse of people consisting of his parents, grandparents, brother, sisters, relatives and friends. His body was tenderly laid to rest in Beverly Hills Memorial Park there to await the call of Gabriel at the last day. Written by His Grandfather, W. A. Crawford.

LAYTON MORRIS
THE DEATH RECORD
The whole community was shocked last week to hear of the sudden death of Layton Morris, who departed this life at 11 o’clock Thursday night, March 1, 1923, age 55 years. Mrs. Morris was paralyzed Wednesday afternoon and his speech left him entirely at midnight and he never spoke again. He was apparently well up to the time he was taken ill with the exception of a slight illness occasionally. Dr. W. A. Kyger was hurriedly called, but could not render any help. Mr. Morris was a good man and useful citizen. He was born May 13, 1868. He was always on the side of right, one of the first men for peace in his community and it was his delight to try to settle any trouble that might arise between neighbors. True to his church, he will be missed in this community. By hard work an good management and the help of his good wife, he had build up a nice home for his wife and his children. When you went to Layton Morris’ house you went to a real home, where love abounded, where children had been trained up the way they should be trained. In his home no unkind words were spoken and children were trained up to obey father and mother. Mr. Morris had been one of the leading members of Mt. Olivet church for about 40 years, holding an official position at the time of his death. The last time he attended church was Sunday night. Better lights were needed and it was discussed and a motion made to buy better lamps. He seconded the motion with a speech of approval. The lamps have been ordered, but he will not need them. However, the people will remember him by the lights they will render.
Mr. Morris leaves his aged mother, Mrs. Hiden Morris, his devoted wife (nee Crawford) and five children – Vernon Morris, Clarisa Morris, Alphons Morris, Wilbert Morris and Fred Morris – all at home to mourn his loss, and who will miss a husband’s kind affection and a fathers good advice and counsel. He left five brothers and three sisters – H. H. Morris, road commissioner of Greene county, E. S. Morris, of March; Frank Morris, of Geer; George and Lawrence Morris, of Vienna; Mrs. Matilda Baugher, of Lacey Spring; Mrs. L. E. Morris, of Dyke, and Mrs. Barbara Knight, of Washington.
Mr. Morris was an industrious man and always busy in a quiet way. He was a good neighbor, as was attested by the large concourse which attended his funeral. The service was conducted by request by Rev. S. L. Baugher, of Lacey Spring, who married Mr. Morris’ sister. The funeral was a solemn one, to see husband and wife, father and children, separated, is one of the trying things of this life, but such is life, and we have to bow to dispensations we cannot help or understand. The mysteries of this life are deep and hard to understand some times, but we will know some day. The pall-bearers were: Messrs. Andrew Morris, B. G. Snow, W. A. Crawford and Clarence Snow. Mr. Morris was laid to rest in Mt. Olivet cemetery. Prof. Bollinger, of the C.B.I.S., led the singing at the church, and Elder C. M. Driver at the grave.
Written by one who knew him from boyhood till his departure to the great beyond.
