    Notes 
    • Family tradition is that Leroy and his brother George were traveling down the Grand River and stopped along the bank at the location of the FRIZ family farm in Tallmadge Township and that is how they met and later married the FRIZ sisters. Their Aunt (Katherine CROWLEY MORRIS - wife of Edwin B., who died in 1885) had a brother Lawrence CROWLEY who owned and operated a Side-wheeler Steamer W. H. Barrett at this time. It may be that the young men were on that vessel as its normal run was Grand Haven to Grand Rapids.

      After marriage, moved to Ada to the corner of Crampton and Leonard, about 1901. The property had been owned by the Nippress family. On Ada Drive across the street from the old Ada Hotel was a restaurant run by Cap Morris and his daughters. (1920) From "A Snug Little Place: Memories of Ada, MI 1821-1930"
