Obituary: "Death of Mr. Cyrus B. Morris

Summerside mourns the loss of one of its finest and best known citizens by the death yesterday morning at his home, 75 Spring Street, of Mr. Cyrus B. Morris. He had been in failing health for about a year during which time he suffered several paralytic attacks. Mr. Morris was born at Bedeque, December 16, 1876, a son of the late Joseph Morris and his wife, the former Anne Wright, of that place. He was educated in the district school and prepared himself for a business career by entering upon a course in commercial book-keeping at the Charlottetown Business College in which he was awarded a diploma for proficiency. Soon afterward he entered the service of Wright Bros. at Victoria, the partners in which firm were the late Norman and Elisha Wright.

For several years Mr. Morris successfully engaged in the lobster canning business, and established a Prince Edward Island branch in Summerside of the N.B. firm of Fred Magee Ltd., and was made its manager for the province. He later became actively engaged in the fox industry, becoming a director in several companies during the boom years of that vocation. His next business step was to enter into a mercantile partnership with Joseph A. Bernard at Tignish, in which he continued until his retirement in 1940. After his retirement Mr. Morris was active in various capacities in Summerside, conducting one of the drives some years ago in aid of the Prince County Hospital, assisting in the Victory Loan campaigns, and at one time was in charge of the Selective Service Bureau here.

Left to cherish his memory are the following children: Victor, in Cornwall, Ont., Allie, Mrs. Arnold Wilson, Stratford, Ont., Florence, Mrs. James A. Morrison, Summerside; Mrs. Jean Woodcock, Winchester, Mass; also six grandchildren. Two other children died several years ago, Arthur and Doris. Surviving also are two sisters, Mrs. Robert Holland, Bedeque and Harriet, retired nurse, in New Hampshire.

A man of pleasing personality and excellent qualities, the passing of Mr. Morris will be deeply regretted by those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance which included the members of the Masonic fraternity, in which Order he had the distinction of being the oldest Past Grand Master in this province. In religion, the deceased belonged to the United Church of Canada, being previous to the union, a Methodist. The funeral takes place on Saturday at 2 p.m. from the Compton Funeral Home, where a service will, in the absence from the province of the pastor of Trinity United Church, be conducted by Rev. Donald J. MacKay, of the Presbyterian Church. Interment to People’s Cemetery." (The home of Cyrus Morris, at 75 Spring Street in Summerside is now the McNaught History Centre & Archives.).2,5
 
Burial*He was buried in Peoples Cemetery, Summerside, Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada.2

He had one sister, Mary, born in 1841 & one brother born in 1869. At the age of 16 Minerva Ellen Black married John Derrickson Morris. They moved to Cherokee County, Kansas, where the first child, a girl, Carrie Leona was born July 3, 1871. She died March 13, 1956.

The first son, Jasper William was born February 24, 1875, and died April 21, 1965. They then moved to Hopkins, Missouri where the second son & third sons were born: George Albert, April 10, 1877 & Steven Albro, August 12, 1879. The Morris family left for the Black Hills in 1883 with a wagon train of three families. They stopped in Spearfish, South Dakota where John D. 'Bud' Morris did carpenter work & played the violin for dancing school taught by callers Posenanski & Charley Pollock. He also played for dances in the area. The fourth son, Berl Leroy, was born in Spearfish, South Dakota on September 3, 1883. He died September 8, 1948 in British Columbia, Canada. In 1891 they left for Boise, Idaho and stayed there a couple of months, going through Billings, Montana when it was just a stockade. They moved back to Kansas, where his oldest brother, William, lived. In1892 Nina Ellen was born in a 'sod shanty'. They remained in Kansas until June 1892, and then left for the Black hills again in a covered wagon with five families. One family (the Candles) stopped at Rapid Creek &homesteaded. Of course there was no city there at that time. The other families drove on to Spearfish Creek. In the year of 1895 the Morris family filed on a 160 acre tract of land at the foot of the Bear Lodge, on the west side of the mountains where he built a five room log house. They moved from Spearfish to the homestead in the spring of1896. They had stock consisting of eight head of horses & a few cows, chickens, geese, & pigs. They also had Nina's Indian pony named Paleface, because of his blazed face & her English shepherd dog named Zip. The place, two miles west of Spearfish was called the 'summer place.' They all went to Normal school in Spearfish, except Nina who was too young at the time. When they moved to the Beaver Creek place, there was not a school or church close by. The nearest one was seven miles up Beaver Creek known as the Perkins school. They went to school by horseback or a small cart. The winters were so severe they usually had school three months in the fall & three months in the summer. The first teacher was May Bonell from Spearfish, South Dakota, a sister of Mrs.John Mahnken who lived on the now Dillon Ruland place. Mrs. Cliff Robinson was the second teacher, & also a Mrs. A.A. Cooke taught there. There were about twenty pupils most of the time. Nina died before she finished telling Harriet Waugh her story. She married Ben F. Mahoney June 8, 1913.

Mrs. Gertrude Mahoney Hulett, Wyoming. Dear Mrs. Mahoney Since your son, Lieutenant Colonel Joseph A. Morris, 0-22421, AirCorps, was reported missing in action 16 August 1943, the War Departmenthas entertained the hope that he survived and that information would berevealed dispelling the uncertainty surrounding his absence. However, asin many cases, the conditions ns of warfare deny us such information.The record concerning your son shows that on 16 August 1943, he wasleading a flight of planes on a bomber escort mission. Enemy aircraftwere encountered near Elbeuf, northwest of Paris, and he was last seen ashe dived in his plane in pursuit of an enemy plane. Full consideration has recently been given to all availableinformation bearing on the absence of your son, including all records,reports and circumstances. These have been carefully reviewed andconsidered. In view of the fact that twelve months have now expiredwithout the receipt of evidence to support continued presumption ofsurvival, the War Department must terminate such absence by a presumptivefinding of death. Accordingly, an official finding of death has been recorded under the provisions ofPublic Law 848, 77th Congress, approved December 24, 1942. The finding does not establish an actual of probable date of death;however as required by law, it includes a presumptive date of death forthe termination of pay and allowances, settlement of accounts and paymentof death gratuities. In the case of your son this date has been set as17 August 1944, the day following the expiration of twelve months'absence. I regret the necessity for this message but trust that the endingof a long period of uncertainty may give at least some small measure ofconsolation, I hope you may find sustaining comfort in the thought thatthe uncertainty with which war has surrounded the absence of your son andhas enhanced the honor of his service to his country and of his sacrifice.

Awarded the Purple Heart posthumously. ARTICLE FROM THE QUEEN CITY MAIL SPEARFISH S. DAKOTA NEWSPAPER AUGUST 24, 1944 'GOVERNMENT DECLARES JOE MORRIS DEAD AFTER 12-MONTH ABSENCE' This week Mrs. Joe Morris received word from the war department thather husband, Lieut. Col. Joe Morris, one of Spearfish's favoritefighting sons, who has been missing in the European theater of war sinceAug. 16 of last year, has been declared dead . Hopes have been held by relatives and friends that the courageousair corps officer would show up 'somewhere in France' as the battle forthe liberation of the enemy occupied country progressed. This week asParis regains it freedom, the message from the war department reveals theimportant part Col. Morris, and other young fighters like him, played inthe early stages of the battle for Paris's liberation. 'Since your husband, Lieut. Col. Joe Morris was reported missing inaction 16 August, 1943, the war department has entertained the hope thathe survived and that information would be revealed dispelling theuncertainty surrounding his absence ,' the message from the wardepartment read. 'However as in many cases, the conditions of warfare deny us suchinformation. The record concerning your husband shows that on 16 August,1943, he was leading a flight of planes on a bomber escort mission.Enemy aircraft was encountered near Elbeuf, northwest of Paris, and hewas last seen as he dived his plane in pursuit of an enemy plane.' 'Full consideration has recently been given to all availableinformation bearing on the absence of your husband, including allrecords, reports and circumstances. These have been carefully reviewedand considered. In view of the fact that 12 months have now expiredwithout the receipt of evidence to support a continued presumption ofsurvival, the war department must terminate such absence by apresumptive death.' 'We regret the necessity for this message, but trust that the endingof a long period of uncertainty may give at least some small measure ofconsolation. We hope you may find sustaining comfort in the thought thatthe uncertainty with which the war surrounded the absence of your husbandhas enhanced the honor of his service to his country and of hissacrifice,' the message concluded. Little is known of Col. Morris' activities overseas other than thefact that he commanded a fighter squadron he had trained in the United States himselfbefore being sent to Europe in June of 1943. It is known, however, thathe was awarded the air medal and oak leaf cluster for meritorious servicein aerial flight in Europe and that he had completed 10 operationalflights over enemy occupied continental Europe before his last flight. An interesting article concerning Col. Morris and his fightingfliers appeared in an eastern paper a short time after he was reportedmissing. It was a delayed Associated Press story by Walter Logandescribing the squadron's first flight. It read as follows : 'For weeks the young American fliers had sat around the huge Nissenhut that was their clubroom waiting for their first mission. They werethe most impatient men in England. 'For weeks they had done nothing while other groups went on manysweeps a day or accompanied Flying Fortresses into Germany. They hadbeen considered a crack squadron when they left the United States andtheir impatience became almost unbearable. Card games lagged and thediscussions always turned to those magic words 'first mission.' 'Then it came. Lieut. Col. Joseph Morris of Spearfish, S. Dak.,their group commander, told them their orders in a calm midwestern voice. It was tobe the real thing. The Forts were going to attack airfields in Franceand action was likely -- Jerries will come up to attack the bombers. 'The first of fat little Thunderbolts roared down the long runway.Then came another and another and another until the sky was full of thepowerful fighters circling for the altitude at which they perform best,and then they were off , across the channel for their first combat. 'Later their battle reports began coming in on the radio and youknew they were mixing it up. The reports were fragmentary and mostlyunprintable. Someone would say 'get that-------off my tail' and someonewould reply 'why certainly.' There were references to the Luftwaffewhich would have made Goerring writhe in indignation. 'Some of them came back singing, 'The Last Time I Saw Paris.' Allof them were nearly out of gas when they landed. But they were happy.' Col. Morris was born near Alva, Wyo. Dec. 8, 1912. He wasgraduated from Spearfish high school in 1932 and soon after graduationentered the air corps and was sent to Randolph Field, Texas, for training. After he received his commission as lieutenant in the air corps hewas sent to Hawaiian Islands, was stationed there during the Jap attackon the island Dec. 7, 1941. Shortly after the attack he was promoted tothe rank of major. He was brought back to the United States to train his own fightingsquadron late in 1942. After eight months he and his squadron were sentto Europe. He received his promotion to lieutenant colonel in June oflast year. Surviving besides his wife is his mother, Mrs. Gertrude Mahoney, ofHulett, Wyo., and his grandmother Mrs. M. Morris of Spearfish.

Note*Nina Ellen 'Ellen' Morris was born in a sod shanty, Utica, Atchison County, Kansas on April 20, 1892. In June when she was three months old,she came with her parents Mr. an Mrs. John D. Morris, four brothers and one sister by covered wagon train consisted of six wagons and two other families, the Dave Derricksons and a family by the name of Caudle. When they reached the Black Hills, the Caudle family settled near thepresent site of Rapid City. Morris's and Derricksons went on toSpearfish where Dave Derrickson operated a barber shop and Morris's livedon a ranch 2 miles west of Spearfish known as the 'Summer's Place.' Nina's father 'Bud' as he was known to his friends did carpenter work andas he was a violinist he played for dancing school, taught by Poseanskior 'Posey' as he was called and, Charley Pollack. In 1895 her father filed on a 160 acre tract of land at the foot of theBearlodge on the west side, where he built a five room log house. In thespring of 1896 he moved his family from Spearfish to their new home inWyoming,brining beside their household goods their stock which consistedof eight head of horses, a few cows, chickens, geese, pigs and Nina'sIndian pony 'Paleface' and her shepherd dog 'Zip'. Upon moving to their new home, and it was time for Nina to start firstgrade, the closest school was seven miles up Beaver Creek, known as theParkins School. Nina's mother taught her to read and write and when she was seven yearsold, she and her youngest brother, Berle, drove the seven miles to schoolwith a cart and horse and occasionally they rode horseback. The winterswere so severe that the school term was held three months in the fall andthree months in the summer. Her first teacher was Mae Bovell fromSpearfish, a sister of Mrs. John Mankin. Other teachers were: Mrs. A.A.Cooke, who drove from her home near Alva with a pony and a cart and Ninarode with as her brother, Berle, was no longer going to school; MamieTubbs (Mrs. Mert Cochrun) was also her teacher. Nina, later during theschool years boarded with the Andrew Parkins family who lived just ashort distance south of the school. At one time there were twenty-fivepupils attending school. She later attended school at Alva. One of herteachers was Mrs. Steve Morris (Gertrude), who at that time was hersister-in-law. (The schoolhouse in which she went to school is now theshop on the Rauth Ranch at Alva.) Nina loved the outdoors and nature, and as a child spent many happy hourswith her dog. She enjoyed hunting artifacts, which in those days werereadily found, and finding Indian beads on the ant hills which were usedin decorating her doll's clothes and in making necklaces. Nina Morris and Ben Mahoney were married at Belle, Wyoming, June 8, 1913by Reverend Coffey, their attendants were friends Inez (Coffey) Noonan,George William 'Bill' McAmis and Thomas Coffey. After their marriage they lived for a few years at Alva with Nina'sparents until their new home in Alva was built, where they lived andraised their family of three sons and three daughters. For many years she was the pianist for funerals at Alva, and having abeautiful voice was often asked to sing too. She was always the pianistfor the school functions and having one of the few pianos in Alva, it wasused many times for dances, being hauled over to the dance hall onSaturday afternoon or evening, whenever there was sufficient help inmoving it and on Sunday afternoon it would be brought home again. In 1941 Nina, Ben and their youngest daughter moved from Alva to Hulettto make their home. Again, Nina, with her music ability and her love of working withchildren, assisted many years with musical programs given by thecommunity. She always had time to do something extra for someone. Shehad so much love for her family and enough to share with others. Inlater years she did much crocheting of beautiful pieces which she gave toher family and friends. She was a fine seamstress, who sewed for herfamily and did sewing and altering for others. Nina Mahoney died April 9, 1969, and is buried in the Alva Cemetery.Children of Ben and Nina are Ben Blair, Harriett (Waugh), Margaret(Conklin), Lyle T., William K. 'Bill', and Dorothy (Razo).
