H. MORRIS was born June 27, 1828, in Bourbon County, Ky., where he resided
until moving to Christian County in 1870. His father, John Morris, was born
February 10, 1793, near Paris, Bourbon County, where he was three times
married. The second wife, mother of our subject, was Elizabeth, daughter of
David and Winifred Bowles, and widow of John Payne. They had two children,
of whom Maurice H. was the elder. John Morris died in Robertson County
August 20, 1872, and his wife Elizabeth died in 1831, at their home near
the old Cane Ridge Church in Bourbon County. Maurice H. Morris was married
November 18, 1852, near Paris, to Mary, daughter of John M. and Susan
(Currant) Layson. She was born December 28, 1835, in Bourbon County, and
descends from the famous "Giant Family," so noted for their extreme height
and weight, as well as for their sterling worth as citizens. Mr. and Mrs.
Morris are the parents of ten children: John M., William I., Edwin A., Jess
H., Perry M., Susan E., Bob T., Emma M., Rodman and Samuel G. H. W. Morris.
William I. and Susan E. are deceased, the former leaving a wife Mary V.
Morris (nee Hayes), and one son named Claude F., now living. In 1870 Mr.
Morris settled in Mount Vernon Precinct on the dairy farm of P. A. Cushman,
but in 1883 removed to his present residence in Hopkinsville precinct, near
the city of Hopkinsville. Mr. Morris is an honorable, industrious man, and
has served the county for some years as a Magistrate. He is chiefly engaged
in the dairy business, with which he combines agriculture.
