In Reply to: Lydia ETTER and Enoch Canada MORRIS by Fred Schouten of 74

The Peffley Book published in 1938 was supplemented in 1940. I do not have the supplement, but the 1938 text is as follows, May Miller Frost did not list her source, other than family interviews.

359-- LYDIA ETTER (Daughter. of No. 341) married in Putnam Co., Ind., Oct.
27th, 1855 ENOCH CANADA MORRIS, born May 15th, 1830, Brown Co.,
Ind., died Oct. 11th, 1920, Windsor, Ill. Both are buried at Bethany Church
Cemetery, Windsor, Ill. Enoch was a great grandson of Robert Morris, who
signed the Declaration of Independence. He served as a volunteer in the
Mexican war.

Enoch and Lydia lived in Putnam Co., Ind., until Oct. 1874, when they moved to
Cumberland Co., Ill. In Oct. 1875 they moved to Shelby Co., Ill., near
Middlesworth. In Oct. 1877 they moved to Windsor township, Ill. where they
lived until Feb. 1906, when they moved to the city of Windsor with their son
John W. and lived there until they died.

From 1877 to 1885 Enoch was engaged in timber work, mostly in getting out
railroad ties, chopping wood etc. He was a member of the old Predestinarian
Church on Walnut Creek in Putnam Co., Ind.

Lydia was formerly a member of the Church of the Brethren near Clinton Falls,
Ind. After she came to Shelby Co., Ill., she transferred her membership to the
Church of Christ at Bethany.
