GEORGE AUSTIN MORRIS
The Greene County Record, Stanardsville, VA, Nov. 29, 1934
George Austin Morris, of Pirkey, one of the oldest citizens of Greene county, passed away at his home Wednesday, Nov. 14, 1934. Mr. Morris suffered a fall about three weeks ago, from the effect of which he never completely recovered. Mr. Morris was a descendant of two old, hardy Scotch-Irish families which originally settled throughout the Blue Ridge – Morris on his father’s dies and Douglas on his mother’s side. The house in which he died was the home of his father, Gordon Morris, and also of his grandfather. Mr. Morris married Susan C. Morris about the year 1870. Their long married life together was terminated by the death of Mrs. Morris about Christmas-tide in 1928. They were survived by the following children: Mrs. Mary Anne Sullivan, Mrs. Altie Pirkey, Mrs. Mabel Rich, Mrs. Julia C. Gilmer, Mrs. Evelyn Collier, Monroe Morris, L. E. Morris, Columbus Morris, Sylvester E. Morris, M. N. Morris and John T. Morris. One of his sons, Willie Lee Morris, was killed in action in 1918 in France during the world war.

The funeral services and burial took place at the Evergreen Church Friday, Nov. 16, the services being conducted by Rev. E. C. Woodie, of C.B.I.S. assisting by Rev. George P. Mayo. Mr. Morris was a member of the Brethren church for many years prior to his death. The children of Mr. Morris will feel deeply the loss of their parent, as he was the tie that held the numerous members of the family together. They will miss his tall tales of by-gone days; his stories full of experience gleaned from a long life. And many children and adults throughout the community in which he lived will miss the kind personality of the old gentleman they affectionately called “Grandpap.” The members of the family of Mr. Morris hereby extend this expression of thanks to the people of the community for their neighborliness and kindness during the last illness of their father.

GEORGE WILBERT MORRIS
George W. Morris, husband to one, father to 5, grandfather to 18, but "granddaddy" to scores. George "Wilbert" Morris took the final journey to his heavenly home on Tuesday, April 20, 2004. As he began to leave, he looked intently at his wife of 63 years, Minnie "Nanny" Morris and then at each of his children as though to say "good-bye." He was born Feb. 28, 1920 in Greene County, to the late Jerry Lee Morris and the late Frances Morris. He leaves to cherish his memory three sisters, Lettie Knight and husband Tom of Dyke; Eleanor Breeden of Earlysville; and Irene Shifflett and husband Walter of Orange; two brothers, Herman and wife Lorene and Charles; four daughters and their husbands, Fay Calk and husband Carlton; Mae Haney and husband James; Lois Shore and husband George; Diane Tucker and husband Harold. His son James preceded him in death. A World War II veteran, he retired from the Virginia Department of Transportation after 30 years of service. Quarter Horses were his passion. He and "Nanny" had big hearts, which they opened without reservation to people in need, including welfare and daycare children. Mr. Morris lived truths contained in the scriptures. He regarded a good name as "better than great riches" and lived his life according to that principle. His "word was his bond" and you could always count on him to perform as he promised. The last year was very difficult for him. He lost his ability to get out and around and strokes began to take their toll. The people helping him with his daily needs are too numerous to name. However, outstanding in their care were Judith Nordensen and Shelly Gormes. Other people dedicated to his welfare are Dr. Byron Osborne and wife Marcie; Dr. William Grant and wife Karen; and Patti and Jim Katapka. We will miss him but in our heart of hearts his memory will remain. A funeral service will be conducted at 10:00 a.m. Friday, April 23, 2004 at Teague Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Holly Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Teague Funeral Home. Teague Funeral Service is in charge of arrangements. NOTE: In this obit Charles would be his half brother Charles Wesley Shifflett and Herman is his half uncle who was the s/o James Huston Morris and Amanda Lee Herring. Herman was married to a Stella Lorean Morris. Herman is called a brother because Hustin (Herman's dad) raised Wilbert, so they grew up together.

ICY MORRIS
Mrs. Icy Morris died Jan. 20, 1926, at home of her son, Charlie Morris, at Beasler Mill, aged about 36. Mrs. Morris was in bad health for a number of years, but had kept on getting worse as the years passed. Cancer of the breast was the cause of her death. Icy, as she was called by everybody, was loved and respected by all. To know her was to love her. She was a Christian woman having connected herself with God a number of years ago. She was a member of Binghams Methodist church and attended when able to do so. She lived on the old Bickers place for a number of years, and up to the death of her husband who it will be remembered, was killed as a car went over an embankment at Rio about three years ago. That left her and one daughter alone. She was compelled to break up house keeping and live with her son. She didn't want to do so for she felt as if there was no place like home. She never made many trips after she left her home. She said when she left, "Please when I die bury me in the old Bickers grave yard." Her request was carried out. She was buried a very bad day. Not many there to see her laid away--- Icy, who was so kind to every one she came in contact with. We all feel she is better off and she is out of her suffering. Icy leaves to mourn her loss her aged father, three sisters and two children, Mr. Charlie Morris with whom she lived and Miss Addie Morris. She was laid to rest in the grave yard beside her husband, Messrs. C. L. Bickers & Son were the undertakers. The course is finished, the life is spent. The body to the clay. The deed of life a monument. For the disclosing of that eternal day. One who knew her well. NOTE: The year of death is listed as 1926 but the Newspaper was Feb 1925
