|Bio and Links|
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 MyFamily.com--The 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.

|INDIANATURTLE||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!
|INDIANATURTLE||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!
Thank you for the transfers.

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.

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!
|My Family Circle||RE: The Stahlhut memorials|
That is correct.

just "connected dots", so to speak. In my enthusiasm to find gggmother Catherine Sweir/Schwer/Schweer, I made a New memorial at Bebee. I was sure she should have been listed but... didn't notice your memorial under the Zs where I THINK you have her listed. Would you be willing to connect with me about this? i prefer personal email but can use public if it works best for you!!!
mom's roots are in Kankakee-- Mann, Cooper.... ever run into them? Thanks for your bio, esp history studies and work in the forest system. interesting.
take care, Jeannie Hemphill, morgan county
|Ms Martie Martin||RE: Ada Younker's Parents|
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.:)
|Bruce Myers||Mary E. Brereton Hodge|
Thanks, Don, for providing the links and thanks also for creating these memorials! Bruce.
