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.

Charles Gates in the Peotone Cemetery
I would appreciate it if you would change the message to read "Brother of Henry Gates" instead of "Bother of Henry Gates."

He was my great uncle.

Thank you.

RE: Travis
Thank you Don, it worked this time! Yes, I'm fine with it having your name on there as the person who added it first, and I appreciate the time and effort you took to do the work and the photo you posted. I've already gone in and added his parents and updated the birth and death info. Thanks very much for your help.

RE: Clyde T. Travis
Thank you for doing that, but it doesn't seem to have worked. The memorial still shows to be in your name. Could you try again please? #39318262

Thank you!!

Clyde Thomas Travis

If you're not related too, would you please transfer the memorial for Clyde T. Travis (#39318262) to me? He is my great uncle. Thank you for taking the photo for our family, as everyone else in the family is buried in Alabama so no one makes the trip to Illinois often.

RE: Robert Elliott Reid
To the best of my knowledge, the Milligan Pioneer Cemetery is the one used for burials today. I could be wrong. It is not called just Pioneer Cemetery.

The cemeteries seem to be a duplicate, not the person.
Sorry for the confusion
Thanks, D

I left a message for you on Find-A-Grave awhile back, but never got a response. Perhaps you're vacationing somewhere. If you could contact me regarding my last message about the Morrisons, particularly Barbara Patton Morrison I would appreciate it. Perhaps I missed an e-mail from you.
