He went to Anna Bay where he carried on the occupation of oyster farmer for a number of years then removed to Hamilton where he resided until his death. About 9 1/2 years ago, the late Mr Morris had been the victim of a stroke and had been more or less an invalid since that time. Some weeks before his death he was again the victim of a stroke and recurring strokes so weekened him that death ensued.
