  2. Oral history of Mrs. Junie Robinson who attended burial.

    Mrs. Robinson provided a hand drawn map of burial site for Shelby Gerald Morrow. William A. Morrow; Shelby Arnold Morrow and Shelby Gerald Morrow all located the burial site of James Lindsey Morrow. He is buried with his brother Andrew Jackson Morrow, Andrew's wife Tine Morrow. All three graves are marked only with a "field stone" at head and foot of the grave. No inscriptions. At the time of our visit the only section of the graveyard which was being maintained was the Ross Family Plot. The three Morrow graves are located nearby and we had to cut down "waist high weeds" to discover the field stones.

  3. Death Certificate.

    Copy of Death Certificate issued by the State of MS is owned by William A. Morrow.
