Edward Morris

Ed Morris was born in 1851 in Guadalupe County. Orphaned before 1860, he was raised by Ranger Captain John F. Tom and his wife Mary Ann Moffet Tom who migrated to Atascosa County in about 1862. Edward married Mahalia Elizabeth Duck Morris. He worked as a sheriff's deputy, and was a member of the Pleasanton Masonic Lodge. Ed died in 1919 and is buried in the Pleasanton City Cemetery.

The girl in the picture was his granddaughter, Maurine Morris Shone.
