Note: Buried in Lot 3rd.075. Husband Grant and two of their children over the years were buried in Union Cemetery, while an infant daughter who was born and died in 1897 was buried in Evergreen Cemetery. In February, 1920, husband Grant, their son Royal, and another infant (believed to be a son born and died in 1896) were moved from Union Cemetery to Evergreen. Where the obituary writer came up with 1852 for Margaret's birth is unknown; her death certificate says she was born May 5, 1860, but since she died October 19, 1926, at the age of 66 years, 5 months and 4 days, the birthdate should be May 15th, 1860. She was the daughter of Robert N. and Elizabeth S. MORROW MORRIS.
