Sarah Elizabeth Mullin

Sarah Elizabeth “Libby” Mullin
b. 31 December 1869, Rock Creek Township, Carroll County, Indiana, to Lewis and Nancy Jane (Young) Mullin

The Mullin family immigrated to Indiana from Springboro, Warren County, Ohio, in 1831. Libby lived in Rock Creek Township and the town of Camden in Carroll County, Indiana, before leaving in 1909 to join her husband in St. Regis, Montana.

After the 1910 forest fire in which Libby and her family were refugees, she went to work for the railroad as a telegraph operator. Three of her daughters were also telegraph operators for the railroad. The West was a rugged, wild place at the time Libby Ray lived there, and it is said she never became reconciled to it. She always hoped to return to Indiana, and upon her death she was returned to be buried in Camden, Indiana, as was her husband.

Benjamin Morris

Benjamin Morris
b. 7 October 1821, Clark County, Kentucky, to Wm. G. and Nancy (Young) Morris

  • Daniel T.
  • Annie
  • Willis G.
  • Marion F.
  • Allen M.
  • Riley
  • Dora
  • Clark

In 1825 at age four, Benjamin, the seventh of ten children, moved to Shelby County, Indiana, with his parents. In 1835 at age eight, Artie moved with her parents to Shelby County, Indiana. She was the second oldest of eight children.

The lives of the Morris family members in Shelby County are well documented. One son, Hamilton, sold land for the Morris Cemetery in Marion Township.

The Keck family is less well known. About the only tidbit of interest is that in February of 1859, The Shelby County Republican reported that Daniel Keck recovered a stolen horse that had gone missing for some time. It was found in Jackson Township where it had been “fenced.”

Benjamin and Artie moved to Warren County Iowa, in October 1853 with their first three children. Several of their relatives relocated to Iowa as well. Marion F. moved to Nebraska where his daughter and her son were born. All of these families were farmers and every move they made was concerned with better land opportunities.
