Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 02 May 1943 to Percy Iven & Flossie Lola(Love)Morrison in Kankakee, IL. Attended school in the Kankakee area until I graduated from Kankakee Senior High School in 1961. Graduated with a BS Degree from Illinois State University, Normal, IL., in 1965. Taught in Rich Township Schools, District 227, Richton Park, IL., for the next 35 years. During that time, I earned a Master's Degree from the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana, IL. I completed all the requirements for a doctorate in history from Illinois State University except for the last chapter of my dissertation; hence I am classified as "ABD"--all but dissertation. Retired from Rich Township(Rich South)in 2000.

I then went to work for the Forest Preserve District of Will County in their "Operations" Department. I was stationed at the Monee Reservoir, just south of Monee, IL., for eight years, before I retired from that position. My intentions are to stay retired, but one never knows,

Married twice. Have two sons, Darren Ray (deceased-04 Jan 2010) & Scott Douglas Morrison. Have lived in unincorporated Monee since 1982 in the log cabin home I and my wife built on 2 1/2 wooded acres. Completed a "Love Family" history in 1994 for my Mother's side of the family--the Loves. Am currently working on a family history of the Morrisons of Illinois.I take a great deal of pride in being a contributor to Find A Grave. All pictures taken are sent through several photo programs to come up with the best enhanced picture possible before it is posted to a memorial. The last thing I wish to do is offend anyone with the postings I make to Find A Grave. If you object to any posting, please alert me and I will remove it. Please do not send me obituaries to post to memorials I have created. Find A Grave specifically suggests "It is best to not copy obituary notices from newspapers... to memorials..."

I prefer you leave a public message, but you may email if you wish.

Dorothea Lindemann Lenzing (44267952)
Hi, Don,
Would you, please, transfer Dorothea Lindemann Lenzing (44267952) to me (46614496)? She is my grandfather's only sibling. Despite her double last names, she was never married. So there is no one more closely related to her than my mother.
Thank you,

RE: Jennie Houghton #38622445
Thank you. You picked up most of the edits from my message. I just resent the remaining one that included her birth & death info.

I now see that the new edit system is not without glitches. All (3) of the edit requests I sent you were reflected in my Pending Approval file; however, since you revised the memorials from the message, (2) of them replaced the edit (maiden name, link to father) with "no change". I just deleted the original requests, so I hope they don't show up on your end later!

RE: Jennie Houghton #38622445
Don: Thank you for the prompt addition. There were (3) other edit requests sent for Jennie at the same time as the marriage addition: 1) maiden name of Longshore, 2) Jennie's detailed d.o.b./d.o.d., 3) link to her father (#64819731). Looks like the marriage edit request was processed before the maiden name received - so the text you added should reflect Jennie Longshore married Henry Houghton. If you didn't receive these edits, let me know. Thanks!

John Bettington Lewis
He is my g-grandfather. Where did you find out that his middle name is Bettington? I was never quite sure of his middle name. Thank you for posting. I want to get to Peotone soon, but just haven't yet.

RE: Bruce Lee Yunker #16332443
Hi Don,

So how are we related? Or did you mean you are a distant relative of Bruce's. Ether way I guess that would mean we are related anyway!
