I am always happy to add additional information, create links, or make corrections to the memorials i have entered. I will try to do this as soon as possible. Please use the edit tab when sending the information. |

He is the s/o ROBERT Henry and Susan Morrow.
I believe "Richard" possibly came from enumerator's error on the census.

Thank you so much for the very interesting information you have posted about my relatives in Carroll County. It is completely new to me and it is so exciting to learn about their lives on the farm and surrounding areas that I grew up on.

|Heather Berry||RE: Albert Roby|
I have been pretty busy but they have books at the cemetery office. I found one headstone that looked pieced together like a puzzle and the name ended 'bert' I would like to try to get down to look at actual records and see if close to location of Albert Roby grave. And if possibly his broken headstone. I took a picture of it if you want to see what you think I can add it son you can see.
Meant to mention - Ora is connected to me on my dad's side of the family, and her husband, Glenn, is on my mom's side. Small towns . . .

I totally understand - both of my daughters are adopted. (You can hyperlink the biological parents in the bio without linking them as "parents.")
