Biography

Iva Reed Morrison (née Furman) was born on 25 July 1883 in Afton Township, Cherokee, Iowa to Edward Augusta Furman and Emma Jane Reed. She grew up on farms in Afton, and then Cherokee Township, on which her father worked.

Iva married Orin Leamon Morrison on 1 March 1900 in Cherokee. They made their home in Afton Township before moving to Plankinton, Aurora, South Dakota in 1902. They had eleven children together: Bert Franklin, Jess Lester, Clarence Leamon, Leland Ray, Irven Laverne, Harley Lee, Pearl Mae, Earl F, Lucy Vivian, Dakota June, and Agnes Bernice.

The family lived in or around the Plankinton area for three decades until Orin was arrested and sent to South Dakota State Penitentiary in 1931. Like many of her children, Iva moved to the Rochester, Monroe, New York area in 1933, where she settled with her daughter, Lucy, and her husband, Edward Geil, in Fairport, which is where she lived for the rest of her life.

Iva passed away on 22 July 1942 at Genesee Hospital in Rochester after suffering from an illness. She was buried on her birthday in Oakwood Cemetery in Penfield.
