Tillie Morris, of Nortonsville passed from this life to the great beyond May 23, 1933. Mr. Morris was the oldest man in that community. Had he lived to see his next birthday he would have been 84 years old. Mr. Morris was a man of firm qualities and could be depended upon; always found on the right side of a question as he saw it and it was no use to try to change him. He was a good citizen, leading an exemplary life. If Tillie Morris was your friend, you had a friend that would stand by you. He was a devoted member of the Christian church for over 50 years, a member of the old Mt. Union church in Bacon Hollow. When it was thought best to move the organization in the neighborhood of Dyke, he united with the Mr. Olivet organization. This writer remembers well when the public schools had some enemies, and how Mr. Morris stood by them with his vote and voice. One of the great characteristics of Mr. Morris was the love and devotion to his family, which consisted of his wife and 11 children, who are located at the following places; Quint Morris, Somerset, Pa.; Anna Morris, Crozet; Will Morris, Ruckersville; Doff Morris, Nortonsville; Mrs. Flossie Collier, Stanardsville; Mrs. Henrietta Collier, Gordonsville; Mrs. Clemma, Charlottesville; Clydie and Zulemma, Lynchburg, and Panda and Litty, at Nortonsville, who stayed with their father and tenderly cared for them. Mr. Morris had 75 grandchildren, all of who were loyally devoted to him. Mr. Morris was tenderly laid to rest beside his wife in Mt. Olivet cemetery in the presence of many of his relatives, friends, and neighbors, who respected and loved him because they all felt they had lost a friend. The funeral services were conducted by Elder H.S. Knight, who visited Mr. Morris in this last illness Mr. E. Y. Vernon was the undertaker. The pallbearers were his relatives and friends. The floral decorations were profuse. There were flowers enough to decorate both his grave and that of his wife. By One Who Knew Him From Boyhood (NOTE - Tombstone has death date as May 23, 1932)
