THOMAS W. MORROW, an enterprising merchant of Elliottsville, is a native of Ireland, born in county Donegal, February 8, 1859. He is the son of James and Ellen (Wilson) Morrow, both natives of Ireland, who came to the United States about 1861 and settled at Freeman's Landing where they remained until the death of the mother. The father then removed to Toronto, which is his present home. Seven children were born to these parents, all of whom are living. Thomas Morrow received his education at Freeman's Landing, and then began work in the Anderson brick yards, where he remained eight years. After that he engaged in the river traffic for four years. In 1884 he embarked in his present business, in which he has good success. Mr. Morrow was married in May 1889 to Hettie, daughter of John Campbell of Knoxville. His wife is a member of the Presbyterian church of Toronto, of which he is a supporter. He is a member of the Knights of Pythias, and in politics is a republican, though not an active partisan. He has done well in business though beginning on a small scale, and is one of the leading merchants of the vicinity.
