    Judge Morrow, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Macon County is a representative of one of the pioneer families of Missouri. His father William Morrow, came to this state as early as 1818, and located first near Glasgow, in Howard County. After several removals, (one to Tennessee), he settled permanently about 13 miles southwest of Macon City in the spring of 1831. There he lived until his death, which occurred at the age of 66 in 1834. He was a native of Ireland, and was a blacksmith by occupation, and followed that trade combined with farming until his death. He was twice married, first to Miss Sarah Jay of Caswell County North Carolina. His second wife was a Mrs. Rachel Chambers, a widow lady. He had twelve children by his first wife, and four by his second.

    Judge Jefferson Morrow was of the first family of children and was born in Clay County KY Oct 5, 1813, being the youngest of the family. Seventeen years of age when his father came to Macon County he has lived ever since in this county, a period of over half a century. Dec 29, 1836 he was married to Miss Minerva Summers, a daughter of Johnson Summers of this county. Coming up in that early day, like most young men of this country, he became a farmer and has since followed that occupation, except when occupied by public duties.

    In 1837 he occupied a farm on what was subsequently, and is still Morrow township, named for himself, and lived on that place for a period of 45 years, or until Nov 1882.... [detailed review of his career].
