Shared note

During a visit to the Cessnock library, bumped into an elderly lady with the local family history group. A few comments:

  1. There are several Morris' still living in the area. Although the Morris who is the barber is a different clan.
  2. She remembered that Morris was a carrier for M. Light & Co. She could remember the truck in her minds' eye but couldn't locate a picture.

It wasn't clear to me if she she was thinking of Charles or Herbert Morris who were both carriers.
