Note

Note:  !BIRTH: 1880 Census shows his birthplace as Pennsylvania. One source gives the place as Somerset, Pennsylvania. His mother's obituary says hew as born in Perry county, Pennsylvania.
 !MARRIAGE: Married to Ada Lenora Pope, 28 April 1885. Not sealed to spouse as of 1993. 1885 Census shows Walter married to Ada and living near his father's home in Nebraska [Bradshaw]. They moved to Broken Bow, Nebraska in September 1908.
 !DEATH: Age 63 at death. He had suffered poor health for many years (heart trouble?) but had only been seriously ill for four days at the time of his death. Xerox copy of newspaper obituary in my possession. Funeral services were conducted in Bayard, Nebraska, then again at the Christian church in Bradshaw, Nebraska.
Walt and Ada Leonora (Nona) had four children: Alice Maude (Murphy); Walter Fredrick Morrison; Helen Dee (Erickson); and Florence Virginia Morrison.
Note of Interest: the 1885 Census shows "Elize G. Farrie(?)" (single white female, age 21, born in Iowa) living in Walter's home as a servant.
Walt ran a shoe store and harness shop at Bradshaw for seventeen or eighteen years before he was compelled by failing health to sell it. He bought a farm west of Broken Bow then later moved to Bethany, Nebraska, remaining there to run a feed store until the fall of 1911 when they returned to Broken Bow. Spring 1919 he moved to Bayard, Nebraska where he ran a clothing store, and this remained his home until his death.
He was a member of the Christian Church in Bradshaw, Nebraska and later a member at Broken Bow. The last year of his life, he served as an elder in the Broken Bow congregation. He was also a member of Bradshaw Masonic lodge, No. 255 A.F. & A.M. and Signal Chapter No. 282 O.E.S. at Bayard.
