The pioneer physician of Cotter is Dr. John J. Morrow, who has been a resident of this community since its earliest day. In a thorough
preparatory course and later in postgraduate work he laid the foundation for the success and progress which he has attained as a
practitioner of medicine and surgery and he is at all times keeping in touch with the advancement that is being made by those who
are regarded as leaders in this field.
Dr. Morrow was born in McMinnville, Warren county, Tennessee, on the 27th of October, 1861, a son of Demosthenes G. and Mary J.
(Kimberling) Morrow. He was a farmer and bank clerk and upon the outbreak of the Black Hawk war he offered his services and
served throughout the uprising. The maternal grandfather, James Kimberling, was one of the early settlers in Missouri, locating near
Ozark, and he was a leader in the anti-Morman movement which resulted in that people's emigration from the state. D.G. Morrow was
born in Tennessee, while his wife was a native of Missouri. He was reared to manhood by his uncle and before 1849 went to Buffalo,
Missouri. He tried to enlist for service in the Mexican war but was rejected. He went to California during the gold rush of '49, making
the trip with oxen, and he was exceeedingly fortunate in his prospecting, securing a gratifying amount of gold. He then returned to
Missouri but in 1852 started on another trip across the plains, driving a number of cattle. He had trouble with the Mormons but
succeeded in getting his cattle to their destination with little loss. The return trip was made by way of the Isthmus of Panama and he
was shipwrecked on the Bahama reefs, where he was some time later rescued by another crew. He was married at the age of thirty
years in Ozark, Missouri, and remained in that state as merchant and stockman until 1861, when he returned to his native state. In
1861, upon the outbreak of the Civil war, he came to Arkansas and enlisted from Marion county. He was with Shelby in his raid
through Missouri and was in active service until the close of the war. He then returned to Marion county, this state. He was a stanch
supporter of the democratic party and both he and his wife were consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal church, South.
Twelve children were born to their union: Cleopatra whose demise occurred at the age of eithteen years; Octavia, deceased, who
was the wife of Dr. J.I. Thompson of Yellville; Isephena the wife of Jess Horner, a resident of Yellville; Laura deceased, who was the
wife of A.M. Watts; Thomas, engaged in farming in Marion county; Maggie, the wife of J.D. Sims of Lakeland, Florida; Mason, farming
in Marion county; Albert, enganged in agricultural pursuits in Oklahoma; Dr. John J, whose name initiates this review; and three other
children who died in early life.
Dr. John J. Morrow received his education in the common schools of Marion county and later entered the academy at Valley Springs.
For four years he engaged in teaching in the rural schools of Marion county and then, having decided upon a medical career, he
entered the medical department of the University of Arkansas.
CYRUS MORROW. Some writer has said that the most prominent characteristics of the Scotch-Irish are stern integrity,high sense
of duty, hatred of tyranny, the defense of liberty and the love of God. Of such a grand old race is the subject of this memoir
descended, William Morrow, his great-grandfather, the first of the family to come to America, having been born in the North of Ireland,
where he married a native of the same locality.Here,some of their children were born, and in an early day the family immigrated to the
shores of Columbia, making their way westward to Washington county, Penn., where they found a settlement near Hillsborough, in
West Bethlehem township. George Morrow, grandfather of Cyrus, was born in the North of Ireland, and came to the United States with
the family. His earlier life was passed in Bethlehem township, his later days in Donegal township, this county, he having settled on a
farm of Dutch fork of Buffalo creek, about one mile above where it empties into Big Buffalo creek. Here he successfully followed
farming during the rest of his pioneer life. In West Bethlehem township he had married Hester Poole, who bore him children, as
follows: David, Abraham, Noah, Thomas , Elizabeth, Matilda and Mary, all of whom attained adult age , except Thomas, who died
young, and three of them are yet living, viz.: Matilda (married to Milton Lamborn, of Washington, D.C.),and David and Noah (both
residents of Licking county, Ohio). Some time after his marriage George Morrow brought his parents from West Bethlehem to his farm
in Donegal, where they peacefully ended their days.
Abraham Morrow, father of Cyrus, was born in 1816, in West Bethlehem township, this county, where he was reared to the farm life,
his education being secured at the subscription schools of the locality of his birth. About 1841 he married Jane De France, a native
of Washington county, born on Raccoon creek, June 19, 1821, a daughter of Allison De France, and to this union were born seven
children, as follows: Cyrus; Salem and Parmelia Ann ( both living with their widowed mother); Ellen, deceased at the age of twelve
years; a son that died in infancy; Perry, living with his mother, and Albert, a farmer in Donegal township. After marriage Abraham
Morrow resided for some years in the last named township, near Atchison post office, then moved to Licking county, Ohio, near
Kirkersville, whence, after a residence of a few years, he returned to his native county and finally settled on the home farm. Here, on
February 12, 1888, he passed from earth, and here his widow, now aged seventy-one years , is calmly awaiting the final summons.
Abraham Morrow during his lifetime was one of the best known men of his township. As a citizen he was public spirited, and interested
in the advancement and welfare of his community. Quiet and unassuming in his way, kind and charitable in disposition, an exemplary
Christian, he won universal respect and esteem. He was an earnest and consistent member of the Christian ( or Disciple) Church. In
Licking county, Ohio, there was no organized congregation of this church, and he, with a few others, became the founder of one; he
was chosen elder, and later he, in the company of a few others, at considerable personal sacrifice built a meeting house. After his
return from Ohio, he was an elder in the church here until his death. He was also instrumental in the erection of the Dutch Fork
church and parsonage.
Cyrus Morrow was born February 3, 1844, in Donegal township, this county, near the present post office of Atchison, and here,
under his father¹s careful tuition, he learned the art of husbandry, and received a very fair common-school education. On August 26,
1874, he was married to Elizabeth Condit, a native of Amwell township, this county, born July 1, 1853, a daughter of Cephas and
Mary ( Bane) Condit, of that township. This union has been blessed with seven children, all yet living under the parental roof, their
names being Minnie E., Franklin S., Garfield B., Albert G., Earle, Ethel, and Elizabeth J.. After marriage Mr. Morrow purchased the
George W. Guy farm, situated on the Dutch fork of Buffalo creek, a short distance from where it empties into Big Buffalo creek. Mr.
Morrow is not only a general farmer on a large scale, but is also one of the most extensive wool growers in his township. As the eldest
of a family of boys who work together, he has had the care and responsibility of some large deals, and by his business sagacity,
excellent judgment and well-known ability as a financier has been instrumental in keeping the family estate in a highly creditable
shape. Despite the financial crisis of 1857 which crippled so many, including Mr. Morrow¹s father, they succeeded by strenuous
efforts in pulling through, and placing their affairs once more on a solid foundation. Today the ³Morrow boys,² as they are familiarly
known¹ have few equals in the county for industry, economy, honesty, and public spiritedness. In his political predilections our subject
is a staunch Republican, influential in the party, and has filled various offices in his township with eminent ability.

JOHN M. MORROW is a native of the county, born March 21, 1850, in the portion of Canton township that is now included in West
Washington. His paternal great-grandparents, Adam and Elizabeth (Crozier) Morrow, came to this country from Ireland about the year
1804, making their first home in their adopted country in Virginia, where they carried on farming, and thence, in 1820, they moved
with their family to Washington county, Penn., where they passed the remainder of their lives, the great-grandfather dying July 24,
1816, and the great-grandmother, February 14, 1846. They had seven children as follows: William (died in Iowa), Adam (killed in
Virginia by the limb of a tree falling on him), James (died of small-pox), John (of whom special mention is made further on), Andrew
(died in New Orleans), Jane (married a Mr. Carney, and died in Cincinnati leaving a family), and Susan (died when young in
John Morrow, grandfather of subject, was born January 2, 1800, in Ireland, and was consequently four years old when brought by his
parents to this country. In 1823 he was married to Sophia Hallam (a sketch of whose family follows this), and they then settled on land
in Washington County, where the aged widow yet lives, her husband having passed away June 22, 1859. He was a blacksmith and
wagon maker by trade, and many of the wagons made by him were used in the construction of the National pike, while fifty-six were
bought by the Government for use in the Mexican war. He was regarded as a man of much ability, and was not excelled as a
mechanic. His old workshop on East Wheeling street, Washington, is now owned by J. D. Jackson. His widow, at this writing, nearly
ninety years of age, possesses remarkably good health and memory. She is a member of the M. E. Church at Washington. Seven
children were born to this honored couple: Adam Crozier (special mention of whom follows), Thomas Hallam (died in New York), John
Andrew (died in Omaha), Robert Latimer (died in Washington, where his widow and one daughter are yet living), Sarah Margaret
(died unmarried), Elizabeth Jane (deceased wife of John McEnas, of Boston, Mass.), and William Henry (now living in Boston, Mass.).
Adam Crozier Morrow (father of John M.), was born August 16, 1825, in Washington county, Penn., at the common schools of which
place he received his rudimentary education, after which he attended college four and a half years, but did not graduate. He learned
the trade of blacksmith with his father, and followed same until 1850, when he embarked in the dry-goods business, later taking up
the grocery trade, which he carried on in Washington some twenty-five or thirty years. During part of this time from 1868 to 1880 he
kept the "Auld House," then known as the "Morrow House," and previously called the "Railroad House." Having sold out all his
business interests in Washington in 1880, Mr. Morrow, in 1886, moved to Pittsburgh, where he has since made his home. On June
15, 1848, he married Ann Elizabeth, daughter of Col. John and Nancy Morgan, of Chartiers township, whose children were: Martha,
married to Godfrey Cook also of Chartiers (both now deceased); Major Jacob Morgan (deceased), whose widow, Alice (McCloskey),
now resides on Prospect avenue, Washington borough; Emily, married to William Cundall (both deceased); Robert, married to Mary
Mackie (both deceased); Nancy, wife of James Harvey, living in Mt. Pleasant township; William; Rebecca, wife of J. R. McCloskey, in
Kansas; Hugh, also in Kansas, and Ann E. To the marriage of Adam and Ann E. Morrow were born ten children, as follows: John (our
subject), Lucius S. (born August 8, 1852, died at the age of about four years), Annie S. (born May 16, 1855, married to W. D.
Roberts, of Washington), Charles C. (born November 30, 1858, now a resident of Pittsburgh), Sallie M. (born June 14, 1860, also
living in Pittsburgh), Jennie M. (born September 10, 1863), Hugh W. (born November 23, 1867), Mollie and Alice (twins, born in 1870,
died in infancy), and Thomas (who died in childhood). The mother died January 13, 1890, in Pittsburgh, at the age of sixty-three
years. The father is a stanch Democrat, and has filled various offices of trust, such as member of council for a time; he became a
member of the I. O. O. F. at an early age.
John M. Morrow received his education at the common schools of the district, and on completing the usual curriculum, entered Duff's
Mercantile College at Pittsburgh, from which he graduated in 1871. He then received the appointment of cashier and bookkeeper for
Major Morgan, an extensive wool dealer in Washington borough. At the expiry of a year he accepted a similar position with S. Ewart &
Co., wholesale grocers, but in 1872 he returned to Washington to assist his father in the grocery business, in which he continued till
1880, when the latter sold out, as already related. Our subject then entered, July 1, same year, the employ of George Davis.
On January 25, 1875, Mr. Morrow was married to Miss Elizabeth W., daughter of M. G. Kuntz, and three children have come to bless
their home, viz.: Eliza Ann, born August 23, 1877; Sophie Elizabeth, born January 31, 1879; and Wray Grayson, born September 23,
1881. The family reside in the comfortable and handsome residence, No. 87 East Maiden street, built by Mr. Morrow in 1889. They
are all members of the Second Presbyterian Church of Washington. Socially our subject is a member of the Royal Arcanum and the
Improved Order of Heptasophs, Washington; politically, he is a Democrat.
Mrs. Sophia (Hallam) Morrow was born January 31, 1804, in South Strabane township, Washington Co., Penn., a daughter of
Thomas Hallam, who was a son of John, Sr., and Isabella (Fell) Hallam, who both died in Washington county early in the century,
having immigrated in 1763 to this country with five sons, two of whom went to the Far West, Thomas and John coming to Washington,
this county, where the latter died of smallpox in 1800. Thomas was twice married, first time to a Miss Beshear, by whom he had eight
children, all now deceased. His second wife was Sarah Voorhees daughter of Isaiah Voorhees, who died in Columbus, Ohio, and
whose wife was called from earth in Washington, Penn. After marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hallam settled on the farm in Franklin
township, where John Reddick now lives. For a time they kept a hotel which stood on ground now called "Pancake." Later, having
rented their farm here, they moved to Wellsburg, W. Va., where Mr. Hallam had bought a ferry, which he ran for about a year. They
then returned to Washington county. Mr. Hallam traded the "John G. Clark" farm in Franklin township for 1500 acres in Ohio, whither
he and his wife moved in 1828, and here he died August l, 1829, at the age of eighty-four years. He was very successful in all his
undertakings, but died comparatively poor, having lost most of his property by going bail for others. He participated in the Whisky
Insurrection. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hallam had eight children, viz.: Thomas (died in Ohio), Absalom (died in Illinois), Sophia (widow of
John Morrow), Samuel D. (living in Monmouth, Ill.), David (died in Iowa), Margaret (deceased wife of John Stone, of Illinois), Sarah
(died in Ohio) and Isabella (deceased wife of Thomas Goodman, of Texas).

William and David Morrow
The grandfather of these gentlemen, Thomas Morrow, was a farmer in County Down, Ireland, and during the middle of the eighteenth
century emigrated with his large family to America, locating near Harrisburg, where they remained until the death of Mr. Morrow, when
the family settled in the eastern part of Washington county, Pennsylvania.
Matthew Morrow, son of Thomas, located near Pigeon creek, and was there married to Elizabeth, daughter of Israel Wier. Soon after
his marriage Mr. Morrow came to Canton township, and purchased the farm now occupied by Thomas Allison, where he spent the
remainder of his life and reared the following family: Samuel, Thomas, John, James, William, David, Adam, Mary, Lavina, Catherine,
Jane, Anna and Elizabeth. He was a hard working, energetic man, and achieved success by earnest effort. He was a pronounced
Whig in political views, and one of the earliest members of, and most earnest workers in, the Presbyterian Church at Buffalo. He
served as a member of the poor commission of the county for many years, giving universal satisfaction. He passed away at the
advanced age of eighty-one years, and, with his faithful wife, who lived her three score years and five, now rests in the cemetery at
Buffalo. WILLIAM MORROW, like many of the pioneer children secured his principal education in the school of toil, although he was
allowed to attend the common school a few days in the winter, when nothing else would occupy his time. The old log schoolhouse,
around which cluster so many pleasant reminiscences, was an extremely humble affair; and through the cracks of the puncheon floor
the wind came in gusts, causing the little ones to crouch closer to the huge fireplace, which extended across one end of the room,
and was supplied with logs cut by the older pupils. The text-books, in exquisite harmony with the other appointments of the room,
were of the most primitive character, and the stalwart master, selected rather for his physical than mental powers, who was a firm
believer in the maxim of Solomon: "Spare the rod and spoil the child," unlike many other theorists, practiced the principles which he
preached; no pupil in his school could in after years complain that they were spoiled for the lack of vigorous application of the rod.
But revenge was sweet, and many times these tortured victims of the birch barred out the dignified master, and compelled him to wait
their pleasure or "stand treat." Amid such surroundings the youth of William Morrow was passed, and, in spite of toil and privation
those early years were happy ones. The clothing of the family was the product of their own industry and skill, the cloth being woven,
dyed and transformed into the necessary articles by the women. Mr. Morrow was married to Eliza, daughter of Samuel McClay, and
their union was blessed with the following children: Sarah J. (wife of Thomas Allison), Robert M., Mary A., Margaret (wife of Jackson
Lone) and Matthew. Mr. Morrow is a Republican in his political preferences, and in religion he is a member of the Presbyterian
DAVID MORROW was born on the home place, and passed his boyhood in assisting his father on the farm and in attending the
common schools a few months during the winter. On January 14, 1840, he was united in marriage with Grizella. daughter of Robert
Johnson, and this union was blessed with two children: Margaret (Mrs. Robert Murray) and Mary G. (Mrs. Hamilton Davis). In 1890 Mr.
Morrow married, for his second wife, Isabella, daughter of James Work, of Hopewell township. Politically, Mr. Morrow was always a
worker in the Republican party, and for many years held the office of assessor in his township, giving universal satisfaction. He was a
trustee of the Presbyterian Church, of which he was for many years a member. David Morrow passed away February 27, 1892,
having been preceded by his wife on January 7, same year.
