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:
Rufus Pinkney Morris (1862 - 1943)
Mary Rebecca Cox Morris (1858 - 1900)
Nora Hester McGee-Morris Wywias (1894 - 1966)
Jimmie Morris (1918 - 1935)*
Mary Ellen Morris Caywood (1919 - 1967)*
Gennieve Morris Letondress (1921 - 2011)*
