Memorable Manitobans: John Morrow (1855-?)

Farmer.

Born at Russell, Ontario on 11 March 1855, he came to Manitoba in 1879 where he homesteaded on 480 acres near Darlingford. He raised pure-bred Short Horn Cattle and Clydesdale Horses. In August 1879, he married Agnes Cany (?-?) and they had two sons and two daughters. He served for eight years as a trustee for the Darlingford Consolidated School Board, taking an active part in its organization, and was a Councillor for the Rural Municipality of Pembina. He was Secretary-Treasurer of the Kingsley Presbyterian Church.
