210 John Devonald MORRIS was the second child born to John Newland MORRIS and Phoebe Devonald in Brigham City, Utah he was born on 9 April 1856.

I knew Uncle John as an older man, but one Memorial Day, in Rockland, I was visiting with a cousin, Thomas Melvin MORRIS who was Uncle John's son and he said, "did you know, Julia, that dad and his father (John Devonald MORRIS) planted the first 1/2 bushel of wheat in this valley?" I was so happy to know that.

When our dear Uncle John was living with us, I asked mother, "where is his wife?;" and she told me the following. "In 1901 a little girl was born to them, and ten days later, Uncle John's wife (Elizabeth MORGAN) passed away." I thought, that is more sad than my grandmother's passing, because she left a tiny little baby, and my mother was three years old when her mother had died. I learned this when very young. It has been more than forty years since my mother told me this, and I still feel a sadness inside when I think of Uncle John.

He had married Elizabeth MORGAN on 18 January 1883 (this is on the same day my mother's parents were married.) He was twenty-seven years old and his wife was nineteen. Seven children were born, four boys and three girls. How happy those years must have been. When he found himself alone, he also found relatives who wanted to help. They took the children, and raised them, but these stories are to
others to tell.

I want to tell of the sweet little old men who was my Uncle John. His hair was white as snow, and he had very blue eyes. They twinkled when he talked. He was very bent, and walked with a cane. He worked or rested all the time. Mother said "a weed wouldn't dare show itself in the garden." He would work then go over to the apple tree that stood near the gate, slide down the trunk, lay his cane aside, and sitting against the base of the trunk, nod. Soon he would be in the garden

He was quite a philosopher. One hot summer day my mother, Phoebe Alvaretta Johnson JACOBS, who was the 4-H leader for me, and my friends was hostess for the Power County Home Demonstration Agent. This lady had come over to demonstrate "home canning." Mother knew that the puffed sleeves in my 4-H dress had to come out, a second time. I had basted those gathers by hand twice, and she knew I would not take this news graciously. So she said "Julia Victoria, why don't you go get you 4-H dress, and show it to (I don't remember her name);" So I did, and very soon "the sky was falling". Pride in my dress was wiped away as she said, "it is very pretty but these sleeves are called "puffed" because they should be a gathered. I'm afraid when you basted them your stitches were just a little to long because the fabric lays in tiny pleats. Can you see right here, and here, etc.?"

I was crushed! I put the dress away, and was out in the orchard crying when Uncle John came over, and asked what had happened. I sobbed out the whole story. He patted me, then said, "you know Julia, they will ask 'who did it' not 'how long did it take';" All of these many years I have quoted that great lesson he taught me so long ago. And I will be
eternally grateful to Uncle John for it brought the quality of his life into my life.

He passed away on 24 March 1944

Story by Julia Victoria Jacobs BECK

Interred at Brigham City Cemetery, Brigham City, Utah. 
Morris, John Devinold (I156)
211 John Newland MORRIS and Phoebe DEVONALD were converted to the gospel,and
jointed the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints in Wales.
He preached in every country in Wales. He could quote passages from
the Boble by the hundreds (From Grandson Ed Morris).

John Newland MORRIS was born on February 16 1823 Llandysul Cardinganshire,
South Wales. The story said christened March 23 1923 (I think it meant
March 23, 1823).

The family lived in Brigham City and they moved to Rockland Idaho.

In her later years Phoebe was almost helpless. She suffered from
"Dropsy", and was terribly bloated from the water in her tissues.

John Newland MORRIS and his father planted the first half bushel of
wheat in Rockland.

JNM was a very dominant personality and when he ask for silent none
of the children would dared whisper.

There was a big celebration in Rockland not sure what it was for, but
the chuch was full of people. The closing number on the program was
"POETRY" BY JOHN MORRIS. It was common thing in Rockland because
he was such a creative entertainer. He took his place at the center
stage, and the conregation called out the subjects. Usually it would be a name, and if so, he would create a verse spontaneously, then another, and
another. Sometimes places would be called out, or things fruits or flowers,
etc. He would hold an audience's attention in pleasure, and happiness for
many hours. And this he did on January 27 1905 when he was 82 years old.
That night he passed away.

His first wife was Lucy Amelia PACK Kimbal. Lucy's first husband was William Kimball, President Heber C Kimball's son.

Lucy married Joseph Baker 10 Jul 1859 in Salt Lake City,Salt Lake Co.,Utah by President Brigham Young. She died 16 Apr 1874 at Mendon, Cache Co.,Utah, She is buried in the Mendon,Cemetery, Cache Co.Utah.

Joseph and his friend David Rowe were walking on the Rail Road track by the Rocky Point north of Mendon,the wind was blowing so hard they did not hear the train coming and was picked up by the cow catcher and pitched to one side.
