MORROW, JESSE, retired miller, Sec. 26, P. O. Athensville. Born in North Carolina Aug. 4, 1812 and removed to this State in the Fall of 1819, settling within the limits afterward contained in Greene County; he may thus be regarded as one of the earliest settlers, and one closely identified with this county's growth and development; married Nov. 19, 1836, to Margerie, daughter of Squire Allen, of Greene County, born Dec. 17, 1817. This union was blessed with two children, viz: Marshall, born April 28, 1838, and Martha Jane, born June 28, 1840, died Aug. 5, 1864. Mrs. Morrow died Aug. 6, 1842. Mr. M. married again, Nov. 19, 1845, to Elvira, daughter of Charles and Mary Bradshaw, Greene County, born Feb. 22, 1821. By this union eleven children were born, seven of whom are living, viz: Alex R., born Aug. 27, 1846; George W., Feb. 9, 1851; Sarah Ann, Nov. 14, 1852; Nancy E., Nov. 10, 1854; John B., July 26, 1856; Zac. D., Sept. 15, 1838; and Oliver A., April 29, 1863. Their mother died March 5, 1866. Mr. M. married his third wife Dec. 27, 1868, Miss Nancy Nettles, Greene County, born Dec. 7, 1828. Mr. Morrow, during the greater part of his active life, has been engaged in the milling business having first bought the old Ruyle mill nearly forty years ago; he has been retired from active business about ten years. He held various positions of trust, such as county treasurer, superintendent, justice of the peace, etc., etc., ever discharging his duties satisfactorily and with honor. Mr. M. recalls with vivid recollections many incidents of early settlers' life having come here when this country was a the hunting grounds of the Indianas. He is now spending his declining years in ease, surrounded by his numerous family.
