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. Both histories are posted on Loves' Family History & "OneIllinoisMorrison Family." Invitations are sent out to interested parties so they may participate on the sites.

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.

Thanks so much for your time and effort on this site. Sorry about the mix-up on Emma's father and brother. One's name was Fred and the other was Friedrich, but went by Fred.:)

The information I gave was from her death certificate. I believe Friedrich 89375780 who is buried in the same cemetery was her father. His Americanized name would have been Fred. Also, there is a Sophie Duwe in the same cemetery who I believe to be her mother. Her cert gives parents as Fred and Sophie.

Thank you.
Thank you very much for linking Memorial# 55589482
to his wife and his parents.

Don't you hate when you send empty messages. I've done that a few times too.

I just noticed your Mother's maiden name is Love.
So, you are related to the Hauert family, through the Schipper family? My husband's cousin Lucille Schipper 1918-1986 married Donald August Love 19171992, they are in Greenwood Cemetery, Superior, Douglas Co, Wisconsin, USA

RE: Laura Marshall #42351590
Thank you. Yes, I did find their marriage record, they were indeed married in Parke County, Indiana. Also, Laura's birth information is 12 Jul 1866 in Parke, Indiana and she died on 24 Sep 1938 in Kankakee, Will, Illinois. Her father's name was John T. Brown. I am going to send for an obituary on both Laura and William so when I do I will have more info to add.
