    In 1881, he is working in the Ute Reservation agency.  Here is is a"Farmer and Issueman."  Henry Page is reported as the Agent, so thisis likely the agency where he was working in the 1880 census report.

    In 1900, a record appears to match Morris, matching the geographicalprogression of the records we ahve found.  His birthday is reported asMarch 1860 (a year later than expected, as often happens in the 1900census), but the birth state is reproted as Kentucky.  WIth thefather's state reported as Pennsylvania, this is likely the correctperson.  His mother is also reported as born in Kentucky, rather thanTenenssee.  He owns the residence and has two prospectors boardingwith him.

    Morris died some time before 1907.  I found a 1907 Indian censusreporting his widow living with her parents on the Mjave San Carolosreservation where Morris was last reported working.  Since he wasreproted as single in teh 1900 census, we also know they married afterJune 1900.
