Hawkins Morris

Obituary of E. G. Morris, Chapel Hill, Tennessee.

E. G. Morris, seventy-eight years of age, died after a long illness, at his home near Chapel Hill, Tenn., on July 22, 1921. He was buried in a suit of gray and in a gray casket.

Shortly after the War between the States Comrade Morris was married to Miss Chloe Hawkins, of Bedford County, and to them were born ten children, all living to mourn the loss of this devoted father. He was a faithful soldier of the Confederacy, and was never without the Confederate Veteran, which he read to the last. He served faithfully through four years of war as a member of the 44th Tennessee Infantry; was twice wounded in battle, at Shiloh and at Corinth.

He was a member of the Methodist Church for many years, and was ready to join his comrades and friends when the call came. After services at the Methodist church at Mt. Pleasant, his body was borne in the flower-covered casket to the family graveyeard to rest until the last bugle call.
