    2. [S1251] Find A Grave, Morgan Sexson.
      On the evening of Dec. 27, 1887, the death knell again sounded its doleful accents and claimed the life of Morgan F. Sexson, who had passed his three score and ten years, 50 of which he was a resident of Ash Grove Twp., Shelby county, IL. His father, Free Sexson, emigrated from Kentucky in 1832. In his 21st year he married Elizabeth Williams of White county, IL. His wife and six of his ten children survive him. His education was somewhat limited, though often has it been said among his acquaintances: "Uncle Morgan is a man of more than ordinary judgment and ability." In his community his council was sought by many, and was always cheerfully given. He cast his first presidential vote for Andrew jackson, and was all his life a democrat of the Jacksonian type. He was a man of genial and hospitable disposition, his latch-strings was at all times found hanging on the outside to all that called at his door, whether he be a minister, politician or tramp. He retained the vigor of his intellect to within a few hours of his death and fully realized that the end was drawing nigh. He was buried last Thursday at the cemetery at the Oak Grove [Ash Grove] church. Rev. Douthit preached the funeral. One by one our old settlers drop from our midst. Peace to them. - Shelbyville Democrat - Thursday - 5 Jan 1888
