Oscar Andrew Morris
Birth: Dec. 29, 1884
Ellijay
Gilmer County
Georgia, USA
Death: Dec. 5, 1924
Keller
Tarrant County
Texas, USA

Oscar Andrew Morris was shot to death on December 5, 1924 at Keller, Texas (near Fort Worth, Texas). He was murdered in front of his wife and four children (Nora McGee/Morris and their children, Jimmy Morris, Mary Ellen Morris, Gennieve Morris and Carrie Morris).

My mother, Mary Ellen Morris/Caywood never fully recovered from the shock of seeing her father murdered. She rarely talked about it, but when she did it was a sad time for us.

She said he was a fun and loving father to his wife and children. I wrote about their lives in a manuscript I called "Suddenly It's Forever" - You can read it here:
