O. H. P. MORTON, Hopkins County, was born July 6, 1815, at Morton’s Gap, Ky., and is a son of Thomas Morton, Sr., and Elizabeth (Davis) Morton. At the age of twenty-five he commenced farming on eight-six acres of land given him by his father. He afterward increased this land to 220 acres. This he has since disposed of, except sixty-six acres, where he now resides. He has recently completed a very comfortable house on the farm, which cost about $500. He was married in 1840 to Susan Whitfield, of Hopkins County. She died in 1874, aged fifty-two. This union was blessed with ten children, four of whom are now living, two sons and two daughters: Nancy, Needham, George and Belle. The deceased are Alonzo, William, Matilda, Edith, Athaliah and Inez. Mr. Morton is a consistent member of the United Baptist Church.
