Excerpt from Genealogy of the Morr Family The members of the Morr Family convened in Trinity church, Ashland county, Ohio, July 18, 1881, forthe purpose of organizing a Reunion of the Family. It was called by Rev. William A. Shisler who was chosen President of the meeting. After a brief discussion upon the propriety of such an organization it was decided unanimously in the affirmative, and that the first reunion be held in Samuel D. Morr's grove, near Trinity, August sixth, proximo. One motive in perfecting this organization was to cultivate as well as perpetuate a social disposition among the members of the Family; another, to collect historical facts, and from them prepare a paper to be read at each reunion by the person chosen as historian. Action relative to the publication of the Family History in book form was taken at the reunion held June 12, 1890. It was then that a committee was appointed to inquire into its cost, etc., but the material collected to date was insufficient to warrant the undertaking. It was resolved to make an effort to gather all additional history. At the twelfth annual, held June 9, 1892, the writer was chosen historian-in-chief, with an assistant. This was done in order that the field might be more properly divided, and the labor prove less burdensome. Since then the work has progressed as speedily as the facts could be gathered. Every family was appealed to for its family record, and such other facts as they could give, excepting where the information had previously been obtained. Space forbids the mention of those who so kindly responded to the requests made for historical facts. To one and all, known or unknown, heartfelt thanks for courtesies received are herewith extended. The early history of the Family is not as complete as desired. The author hoped that in his research for historical facts a fuller account of the Morrs who came from Germany could be given. In the absence of the necessary information it cannot be established from what section of that country they came or how numerous a family they were. It is likely that mothers of the same relationships are still living in Germany whose genealogy it would be difficult to trace.
