We regret that we are unable to
perform personal research for anybody.


Before the existence of Morris County, five counties included all or part of itsterritory. In 1820 the area was organized as Miller County, Arkansas. In 1836 the tract became Red River Countyof the Republic of Texas.

In January 1841 the Congress of the republic established Paschal County for judicial and otherpurposes and designated Daingerfield county seat. The act establishing Paschal County was ruled unconstitutionalby the Supreme Court the next year because it did not provide the county with representation in the legislature.Subsequently, part of what was to become Morris County became part of Red River County, and the rest of the areawas part of Bowie County.

In 1846 the First Legislature of the state of Texas established Titus County, whichincluded all of the territory in present Morris County. Morris County was demarked from Titus County on March 13,1875, and probably named for William W. Morris. The county was organized on May 12, 1875, with Daingerfield asthe county seat.
