Notes for Lewis Alexander Morrow


Louis Alexander Morrow was born in Ohio, Oct. 15, 1836. Died at the home of his grandson, Daniel Morrow, at Yougstown, Mo. Monday, Dec. 20, 1909, at the age of 73 years.

In his young manhood he moved to Indiana, and there married Mary A. Goodwin, April 26, 1860. To them two children were born. One a daughter, died in infancy. The son still remains with his family to mourn the loss of the father and grandfather.

With his family the deceased came to Missouri, and settled near Sloan's Point in Western Adair County in 1885, near the present site of the village of Youngstown. He has since been a resident of this county.

He was a man of good health, and had often said that he did not wish to linger in long sickness when the end came. He had his wish. On Monday he was as usual, helping in work about the home of his grandson. In the afternoon, he was taken ill, and none thought the trouble serious. But, while in conversation with his son and grandson, he fell and in a few moments passed away.

While a young man of 18, he united with the Presbyterian church. When but a boy of eleven years he was afflicted with deafness. He was a good citizen, and in the community and family circle will be missed. Beside his wife, he leaves one son, L. A. Morrow, Junior, of Youngstown, five grandchildren, a younger brother, 70 years old and a sister, 76 years old, of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Funeral services were conducted at Youngstown at 10 o'clock a. m. Wednesday, Dec. 22 by H. H. Fletcher, pastor of the Youngstown charge, assisted by Chas. E. Petree Dist. Supt. and the remains were laid to rest in the Sloan's Point cemetery.
