[My Morris ancestors]

In this house Anthony Morris^ resided for 20 years, until his death in 
1763. The Mansion and Brewhouse with Malthouse and all appur-
tenances, on 26th Oct., 1775, became the property of his grandson
(Major) Anthony Morris,^ who purchased them from the other
heirs of the estate of Anthony Morris,^ for the sum of £3000, that
being the jDurchasing price stipulated in the will of his grand-
father. Thomas Morris, his brother, also lived in the Mansion and
conducted the business whilst Major Anthon^^ was on service, and
it was here, Thomas Morris received the corpse of his brother when
it was brought from Princeton after the Battle in January, 1777.
Thomas Morris then continued the business of the 2nd Street
Brewery and was succeeded by his sons Joseph and Thomas,
and his grandson Anthony Saunders Morris, who were in it in
1835. James Abbott and Robert Newlin took charge of this
"Morris Brewery" about 1836. Previous to that arrangement
Abbott and Newlin had conducted the brewing business at the
Morris Brewery owned by Anthony Morris* on the south side of
Pear and Dock Streets. This Brewery, completed in 1790, was
conducted by Samuel Morris^ and afterwards by his sons Luke
W. Morris^ and Isaac W. Morris,^ who retired about 1810
After a period of at least 182 years, the Morris "Mansion
House," on the west side of North Second Street, above Arch
Street, Philadelphia, is still standing (1898). It is in fairly good
preservation, and Townsend Ward tells us "there is, or was,
affixed to the house, as is said, Franklin's first lightning rod,
still inviting the subtle fluid to gently leave and descend to the

I'm looking for various members of the Morris family around the Atlanta, GA area from 1800 to 1912.

The MORRIS I'm looking for is Augusta MORRIS. Possibly Augusta S. MORRIS. He was my grandfather born 1874 in IL. I have the 1880 census on him and the 1920 census. I have lost track of him after 1920 in San Antonio, Bexar, TX. Does anyone know when and where he died?
