|Birth: ||Oct., 1860|
William is one of our fraternal Great-Grandfather's. We are also looking for his wife Effa Iwa (Ewing) Morris. We think William died in 1922 or 1923. We were told he was buried in Weller, or some place called Mica in Idaho. The original creater of his memorial says he's in Mica Cemetery. William & Effa are supose to have had 13 children according to Ida Belle. Ida was very adamant about being in the middle of 13 kids. But we have only been able to prove the existance of ten. Following are the 13 names Ida gave us, the names with an asterex are the ones we have proven existed, some also have F.A.G. Memorial numbers: 1. *Henrietta 'Etta' Pearl, 2. *Mabel Victoria #102079019, 3. *Melvin, 4. *Webster Alexander(Ben or Alex), 5. *Ida Belle #65909546, 6. *Millie( we think Mildred was her formal name), 7. *Jacob 'Jake' Sylvester #71995893, 8. Claire Ewing #72013839, 9. *Delbert 'Del' Scott #1012636, 10. *Baby Morris: gender unknown, Baby Morris is only proven with the 1900 census. Effa's number of pregnancies are recorded, but by 1900 this baby is not with the family. Ida said her Mama lost one but she couldn't remember anything about it. 11. Jack, 12. Alexander Benjamin, 13. Aly(a girl according to Ida). They had a homestead near Rockford, WA & Grandpa William also worked as a Blacksmith. Jacob was apparently an apprentice Blacksmith working with his dad. Two or three children may have died during an epidemic in the area. According to the family story, those children were buried on the homestead in Rockford, Washington. Effa & Wm had to bury them because the local undertaker was too scared of catching what they died of. He wouldn't touch anyone who died during that time period. We have not been able yet, to determine exactly what disease was striking that area.
