What a beautiful site this home is! They just don't make anything like they used to! I am prayerfully hoping to hear from anyone from the Morris side of the family, as we are related. My great-grandmother is Spencer Jarnigan Morris's daughter. He's my second great-grandfather. I spent much of my childhood with my grandmother (Margaret May) and recall many stories about her daddy being sheriff of Carroll County. I'm the only Wilson who has followed my roots, mostly because I promised Grandma years ago that someday I'd be in Arkansas where her heart always was. I miss her every day and I know she's proud and smiling from heaven. I'm happily married and hoping that my wife and I can meet all of the Morris family someday soon. I'd definitely love to hear from any of you. (479) 222-3285
