Marriage Record : Carvie A. Morris to Ida Hancock, 1900 Monroe County, Indiana

Monroe County, Indiana, Marriage Book 9, page 551

Received the copy of the marriage of my maternal 2nd-great grandmother, Ida (Davis) Hancock to Carvie A. Morris that took place July 19, 1900 in Monroe County, Indiana.

The groom's name is a bit hard to read - is it Carvie A. Morris or Carrie A. Morris, or even Cardie A. Morris?  Anyone with better eyes than mine that could help?

Ida died less than two weeks later in Clay Township, Owen County, Indiana of tuberculosis.  

Mr. Morris is indeed a mystery as well. There are Morris families in the area, but I've been unable to connect him with anyone.  I've also been unable to locate any other records of him than this marriage.  Who was he?  What happened to him after Ida's death?

As always, if you have any connection to this family, I would love to hear from you.
