Morris, Levi G. (Aug. 21, 1877 - August 30, 1943)

Word has been received here of the death of Levi G. Morris, which took place at Delafield, Wis., on August 30. He and his family were long residents of Granton, where he was cheesemaker and rural mail carrier. They moved to Delafield 20 to 25 years ago, and there Mr. Morris was in the real estate business. He was active in church, Masonic and political circles, and was a member of the school board. He was an elder of the Presbyterian church and member of the men’s club, chamber of commerce and Lions club. He was active as a member of the selective service advisory board.

Coming to Granton as a cheesemaker just before the turn of the century, Mr. Morris married Miss Gustie Lee. Their three children were born at Granton: - Mrs. L. W. McFee and Grant Morris of Washington, D.C., and Staff Sergeant Lee A. Morris, who is stationed at an army air base at LaJunta, Colo.

Mr. Morris was born on Aug. 21, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John S. Morris. In addition to Mrs. Morris and their three children, he is survived by three sisters:-Miss Catherine Morris, who is superintendent of nurses at a Delafield hospital; Mrs. Abbie Williams, Cambria, Wis., Mrs. Dan Rees of Waukesha; by his brother, Walter Morris, Pewaukee; by four grandchildren. Mrs. Morris is the sister of Price Lee of the Granton community, and aunt of Dr. E.L. Lee of Neillsville.
