George A. Morris
I happened to see this thread on someone else's board and thought I'd add a little info for you! My family name is Morris. My father' name is George L. Morris (he is still living)and his grandfather's name was George A. Morris, all in Indiana (Hendricks Co. and Parke Co.) Perhaps this adds a little to your search. My great-grandfather was born in 1861, though, and his father's name was William.

Winnaford Clark Hulett
What threw me was the th name, I reversed the middle and last names as Clark was the maiden name?!
And then I started to think of the spelling variations of the first name.
At a genealogy conference last weekend, one of the class sessions dealt with double checking all possibilities.

I did find a WINIFRED Clark, DOB 25 Dec 1827, DOD 19 Nov 1870.

Married to a Gilson Hulett, 1st marriage, and
George A Morris, 2nd marriage.

And it shows George A Morris, married a Mary Clark, in 1871 after Winifred's death.

Hopes this unsticks things!!

George Morris
"George would have passed. George is on the 1910 census for Indiana so a MO burial is unlikely".

Not necessarily so, I had two relatives who did a quick step from southern Indiana to Missouri, to get married. Not really a long haul and from 1860-1960's (present),train travel was quick and expedient.

I wonder if this was one of his children??
In Fort Wayne, Indiana?

George Morris 1919-1919
I walked the ground where George is supposedly buried. This is one of many areas considered "baby land". Most of the graves are nearly 100 years old, mostly infants and children aunder the age of 4.
Many are from Polish, Greek, Russian-Greek ancestry.
I checked with the office and got the exact spot and where he should be buried is empty.
Section Q, Block 3, Row 4, Lot 3.
I will go back with a friend another day and recheck.

RE: Winnaford Hulet Morris
I'm not related to George Morris but I thought I saw his grave in the Wesley Chapel cemetery buried with Mary. I'll see if I took any pictures of it at all.

I obviously found the cemetery where the Clarks are buried. I looked for several years and finally stumbled across it. The owners said that a lot of the headstones had been piled up years ago. I would love to work on restoring the cemetery but haven't found anyone else who's interested.

Whereabouts do you live? I'm in Chicago.
