Daniel Lattimore Morrel
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 20, 1897
Death: Jul. 19, 1918

Corp. Co. C 6th Marines 120961. WW1.

Buried on same lot with Robert R. Morrel, Gladys Morrel, & Jesse Randolph Morrel.

His mother was the second wife, Louie Dan Latimore Morrel. In the 1870 Nuxobee Mississippi Township 15 census she is listed as "Darnella" aged 7. I'm not sure if Louie was short for Louisa or not. She named Aunt Jo "Louie" also. According to the family she always called herself "Dan" and her marriage certificate names her "Louie Dan".

After my daughter joined the Marines and worked for JPAC (recovery of service men from all wars to bring home) and I knew that Truman had promised that every mother's son would come home, I found an article from the Mlford Press about him in which it was stated that he was in fact brought home by train along with other young men from the area.

The family goes:

Jack Reece Morrel m. Launa Florence Edwards children:
Ralph Edwards
Helen Victoria
John Green (my grandfather)
William Lamar
Matthew died young
Annie Gladys
Launa Grace also died young

with Louie Darnella Latimore:
Jesse Randolph
Daniel Latimore
Robert Reece
Louie Josephine (Daddy loved Aunt Jo and Uncle Arthur and their son Dan was his best childhood friend)
Catherine Colbert

Thank you for your interest!
