Biography of J. J. Morrow
Ukiah Township, Mendocino County, CA Biographies





J. J. Morrow. The subject of this sketch is the oldest son of John and Phoebe Carson Morrow ; and was born in South Mountain, Canada West, April 29, 1848, and resided at his birthplace till 1870, receiving his education at Kingston, Canada West. In the last named year Mr. Morrow came to California, and located at Caspar, where he worked in a mill for three months. He then went to Mendocino City and accepted the position of bookkeeper for W. H. Kelley, where he remained for five years. In 1877 he opened the Caspar Hotel, and was its proprietor till he disposed of it to F. Anderson, the following year. In September, 1879, he was elected on the Democratic ticket to the office of County Recorder, which office he still fills to the entire satisfaction of the people of the county. Mr. Morrow is a most worthy, steady, and industrious gentleman; and any political or other preferment that can be conferred upon him by the people of Mendocino county, will prove to be good and fitting. He was married June 12, 1873, to Miss Julia W. Lansing, a daughter of Captain Lansing, one of Mendocino City's very earliest pioneers. She was born in that place March 21, 1857. They have two children: Howard, born June 12, 1874; and Maud, born December 30, 1879.
