    Wilson Morrow, farmer; P. O. Piqua; born in Butler Co., Ohio, Sept. 21, 1817; is a son of John and Mary (Robison) Morrow. Our subject is a nephew to the late Gov. Morrow, of Ohio, whose name is prominently known in the State history. Wilson grew to manhood, in his native county, as a farmer's son. In 1842, he married Rebecca Morrow, born in Adams Co., Penn., Feb. 17, 1822. Soon after their marriage, they located in Shelby Co., Ohio, on their farm, consisting of 160 acres of unbroken forest. They spent a quarter of a century on their property, during which time it was taken to a good degree of cultivation and improvement. In 1868, he sold out, and purchased his present lot, of 5 acres in the Third Ward of Piqua, where he is finely situated, with all the conveniences necessary; the following year he purchased 122 acres in See. 22, Washington Township, Miami Co.; this has since been cultivated by renters, but frequently receives his supervision. Mr. and Mrs. Morrow have had born to them one child, Mary M. E., June 16, 1864.
