James Franklin Morton was born October 1863. He married Martha A. Wallace, daughter of William Jackson and Elizabeth (Wilson) Wallace. Martha was born 19 Aug 1864 and died 8 Nov 1891 in Warrick County. She was buried there in Bethabra Cemetery.
James and Martha Morton had three children:

2. Della Morton, born 31 Jan 1887 in Warrick County.

James Morton married 2ndly, 1896, Ethelda Chappell, born June 1854. In 1900, this family was living in Skelton Township, Warrick County, and included James's two daughters, Della and Ida.
James Morton was dead before April 1910, when Ethelda Morton, widow, was living in Luce Township, Spencer County, IN. On 4 April 1912, in Warrick County, she married Frances M. Carlisle.
What became of Della and Ida Morton? I am trying to locate living descendants, if such exist.
