Hi, my name is Susan. I'm Flavius Morrow's oldest daughter. I remember Gramma and Grandpa Morrow quite well. I also remember the converstions about family. As far as Nolie, you're right. It was his middle name used as his first. There was a reason but I cannot recall exactly what that reason was. I found your space at on a search for more info on our ancestors. Since our father's death 07 June 1983 here at this house, we've lost touch with all but a few of the Morrows. I remember hearing a gunshot and ran to find Grandma Morrow standing in the kitchen with a double barrel shotgun. There in the cabinet was what had just a minute before been a rattler. She'd opened the door to get the flour and found that pesky critter taking a snooze wrapped around the bottom of the canister. She took care of that just as she did any other critters who got into where they shouldn't have been. I cried for weeks when they passed. Still do sometimes. Anywayz, I'm taking a chance this email address is still valid and that I haven't already frightened you off.I have grandchildren of my own now and would love nothing more than to reunite them with the rest of my family. I do have a question or 2. if i'ts alright, holler back please. Take care and all that. Sincerely, Susan Carole Morrow Stone

Lopez was the oldest. I know that. And he was in a motorcycle accident when he was young. It messed up his leg so he walked with a permanent limp. I don't recall ever seeing him use a cane. The house they lived in is very near here. What's left of it anyway. During hurricane Freddie, a large limb from the pecan tree next to the house fell and put a large hole in the roof. The money was given to Aunt Bertha to have it fixed but the work was never done. The walls are mostly still there, the roof , what's left of it is definately unsafe but the foundateion which is concrete is still the same. Even the blood stain in the bathroom is there. That's where my brother was standing when he and our cousin, Lloyd's son Randy accidently shot him in the head. They had just returned from a hunting trip. My father, Uncle Lloyd, Randy and Greg. The boys were just 7 then so them going to the bathroom together was no big thing. Anywayz, Randy never did forgive himself though everyone else did. It was an accident. The gun hand been unloaded and checked. Note I saw Uncle Lloyd wrap that gun around the pecan tree in front of the porch. That was somethin else.Amazing how some events stick in your memory like glue. That wasn't the first time somoene had misspelled Grandma's name. Their insurance angent did it one time. Just one time. I thought the copy error was the problem when I read the message. I got a good giggle out of it as did one of my younger sisters. I have 5 sisters. Greg is the oldest of us, then me, and on. My mom's still alive. She lives in Tennesee with our step-father, John Wilkins. You might be able to get more info from her on the Morrow stuff. She took care of our grandparents when they were bedridden until they left this world. I'll give you her address ending this. She has an email address but she and I don't see near the same so I don't have it. Grandma and Grandpa Morrow are in United Methodist Church cemetery in Stapleton. That's the same church near the Stapleton School. It used to be all grades but I think it's Elementary only now. ( Here's somethin else to think about. The first grade teacher there was Mrs. Harrell. She was my mother's first grade teacher, then my brother's and then mine. She was a wonderful woman who lived right there in Stapleton with her husband and son who had down's syndrome. I have a ghost of a memory of a visit there during a visit home from Fort Rucker where daughters' were mentioned of Mrs. Harrell but I cannot recall clear enough to state as fact. ) Anyway, Aunt Lee (Lela) and her husband Joseph LeBlanc, their daughter Kimberly and our father, Leon, Lloyd and several Nix's are there as well. Mother gave our space next to our daddy to Linda (Bertha's daughter) so she's probably there too. Bertha that is. Not Linda. Bertha's husband of so many years is still alive though Linda has moved back in with him just this year I'd imagine to take care of him since he is getting on in years. Dear Aunt Inez died when I was young. I hid in the feild behind the house untill my daddy called me home. I have to say, of all our father's sisters, she was my favorite. Got to go for now. More later.
