RE: Annie Blackerby -Hobbs
Have you checked There's several family trees by people that already have all the info on this family including photos.

John W Morgan
Birth Mar 1871 in , Montgomery, Arkansas, USA
Death 12 Sep 1906 in , Parker, Texas, USA

(He was son of Dr William Allen Morgan 1840 1914 and
Sarah Jane Rankin 1844 1915)

His wife (Annie's mother) was
Polly (Pollie) E Morris
Birth Jun 1873 in , McNairy, Tennessee, USA
Death 27 Sep 1931 in Denton, Denton, Texas, USA

(She was daughter of Charles M Morris 1848 1913 and
Susannah A Bratcher 1850 1928

And yes, Johnnie Morgan was a younger sister, born 1903. And then another youger sibling Jewel Morgan was born 1905.

Then apparently, the name Blackerby was also listed as a second husband of Annie's mother, Polly.
After her marriage to john Morgan (and after their last child, Jewel was born in 1905) Polly was married to Jesse Madison Blackerby 1856 1935. They are apparently found in the 1910 census in Parker county. Must have just married because years of marriage is listed as "0".
There were also 4 or 5 children by that marriage.
In the 1910 census the Morgan children are present as well as Blackerby children from Jesse's previous marriage. Jake Blackerby is one of those children. He is 15 years old. Annie Morgan is 13 years old.

Hope all this helps

RE: Annie Blackerby -Hobbs
Found an Annie F. Morgan, Born Jan 1897. Daughter of John W And Polly E Morgan. John was born Arkansas and Polly was born Tennessee. All their children listed born in Texas. This Annie's birth month and year seem to fit, Also Weatherford is in Parker Co. where this family was living.

1900 US census, Parker County, Texas

John W Morgan, b. Mar 1871
Polly E. Morgan, b. June 1873
Emila A. Morgan, b. July 1889
Willie A. Morgan, b. Nov 1891
Minnie E Morgan, b. Apr 1893
Lilly M Morgan, b. Feb 1895
Annie F. Morgan, b. Jan 1897
Albert S. Morgan, b. Apr 1899

You mentioned a sister named Johnnie. That may have been a nickname for one of her older sisters or maybe a younger sister that wasn't born yet in 1900.

RE: Annie Blackerby -Hobbs
Ok, I did run across an Annie Frances Morgan in one of the censuses. I'll see what I can dig up. Thanks for clearing up about who the husbands were and which was 1st and 2nd.

Annie Blackerby -Hobbs
Hi, thanks for the info. I've added it to the memorial with your reference. I assume that if Hobbs is her 1st husband then Blackerby is her middle name? Who was the 2nd husband? Otherwise, normally the first married name would be listed before the second married name in her name on the grave marker instead of the other way around.

Incidentally, do you have some more info about who the husbands were and who her parents were? Who was the brother who was also a doctor? Do you possibly have an obituary with some info? I might be able to find some more info on her for you if I have more detailed info about her family.
