Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Elizabeth MORRIS

On 6/5/1900 at census time she was a 54 year old widow, still in N Okaw Twp. She had birthed 9 children but unfortunately one had died. The last 5 children were still at home: Lavinia, 23, Oar, 22, Rolston, 19, Laurence, 18, and Bertha, 14. Son William, 34, farmer, was listed last as boarder and head. Where was his family? Next door was the John and Jane Whitley family.

By 4/20/1910 the family lived in the same place but "Roston" J, 28, was head of the household. Elizabeth was 63 and of her 9 children, 8 still survived. Still at home were Lavinia, 33, Ora M, 26, and Birtha, 22. Rolston was a farmer and probably took over Elizabeth's family farm. David Daily lived next door and in the same township were sons Laurence and James.
