    Notes 
    • 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.
