PIONEER RESIDENT DIED HERE WEDNESDAY
Noble Life Of Mrs. Nancy D. Morris Closed

Death Occurred At Home Of Daughter, Mrs. Carmony

Another of the old land marks of Shelby county passed away when Mrs. Nancy D. Morris died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Amos Carmony, 566 West Taylor street. Mrs. Morris was ill for several weeks. She was born east of Shelbyville in 1831, her age being slightly in excess of 86 years. She was the widow of Hamilton Morris. They spent the greater part of their lives together on a farm immediately 3-12 miles from Shelbyville. Their married life began while the spinning wheel was still found in many homes, when women spun flax as well as yarn out of which they fashioned the cloth from which they made their clothes. No couple was better or more favorably known than Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton Morris. Twelve children were born to them only four of whom survive, they being Mrs. Carmony and Mrs. James Rinehart of Franklin county; Morton Morris, the well known mail carrier out of this city and Mr. Charles Morris of Indianapolis. The funeral of this good woman will be held Friday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carmony. The services will be conducted by the Rev. William Morris of Indianapolis and the interment will be in Forest Hill.
