NOAH JACKSON MORRIS
NOAH JACKSON MORRIS, one of the oldest and best known men in the Pirkey community, passed to the great beyond Jan. 14,1928, at his home in his 88th year. Mr. Morris had been somewhat feeble for some time but bore his sickness with a Christian's fortitude. Mr. Morris was a charter member of Mt. Olivet Christian Church having been a member of the old Mt. Union Church in Bacon Hollow which was the first Christian Church in Greene County. Mr. Morris was active member of the Christian Church for more then a half a century. In all he was a member of the church for 60 years, always taking an active part in preaching services, Sunday School and Prayer Meetings until he was too old to take active part. Mr. Morris was a staunch Republican in politics, always taking strong interest in his party. He was always at the polls early and fought for his men all day. He influence was always sought by men who ran for county office. Your writer remembers what a very prominent man said of him once: If he was going to run for a county office he would first find out how Noah Morris stood and if he was against him he would not run. Mr. Morris was a man of fine business qualities one of the most thrifty men in his younger days in his community, being the first man to start a general store in that section which he successfully ran for years. He was devoted to his family and kind to his wife who died a few years ago. He was a good neighbor accommodating to unfortunate people who needed help. He would always help widows and people who needed his assistance. Men of his kind are rare and more of them needed. His funeral services was conducted by his pastor Dr. W.T. Walters of Harrisonburg at the Evergreen Church in the presence of a large congregation of friends and relatives. His body was laid to rest by the side of his dear wife. The grave was profusely decorated by beautiful flowers in token of his memory. (I left the songs and what was preached out.) His grandchildren were his pall-bears. Mr. Morris leaves to mourn his loss three sons, George N. Morris, James Noah Morris and Lively Scott Morris all of Pirkey; five daughters Eddie Rachel Via, Charlotte Morris Gibson both of Alexandria; Malissa Morris Shifflett, Ludie Morris Shifflett, and Allie Morris Shifflett who stayed with her father until his death. Peace to his memory. W. A. Crawford.
