Ida (Davis) (Hancock) Morris (1874-1900)

Ida (DAVIS) (HANCOCK) MORRIS was my maternal 2nd-great grandmother, the wife of both Samuel HANCOCK and Carrie/Carvie MORRIS.


The following facts about Ida's life are known:

  • Birth: She was born July 2, 1874 in Owen County, Indiana, the daughter of James Austin and Mary Ellen (SWAFFORD) DAVIS.
  • Marriage: She married Samuel G. HANCOCK on August 28, 1892 in Monroe County, Indiana.
  • Census: 1900 - believe she is the Ida D. HANCOCK, inmate, at the "Door of Hope", Center Township, Marion County, Indiana.
  • Marriage: She married Carvie A. MORRIS on July 19, 1900 in Monroe County, Indiana.
  • Death: She died August 2, 1900 in Clay Township, Owen County, Indiana. Cause of death was tuberculosis.
  • Burial: She was buried August 2, 1900 in the M.E. Cemetery, Owen County, Indiana.
The following facts need additional research and/or documentation to complete my research:
  • Census: 1880 - I have been unable to locate her in the 1880 census.  Her father, Austin, was enumerated in Clay Township, Owen County, Indiana - as insane.  Her mother, Mary, was enumerated in her father's household in Washington Township, Owen County, Indiana as a single woman.  
  • Marriage: A copy of her marriage record transcript may provide additional clues.  Would also like to clear up information on Carrie/Carvie MORRIS, as I have been unable to locate records of him after the marriage.
  • Obituary: Have been unsuccessful in locating a copy of her obituary in any of the local newspapers of the time.
