Later, Barnet lived in and about Grayhorse and Ralston, where he married Ida Jones Greathouse on April 24, 1898.No children were born to this union.Nine months after their marriage, this wife died, leaving a daughter by a previous marriage, Elsie Greathouse (now Collins) who now resides in Carleton, Oregon.
Mr. Morrison, in 1903, took as his wife Rosa Mae Latimer of near Fairfax, and the next year moved into the new town of Fairfax, and a year later bought a home at 440 North Fourth street where they have since lived.
To this uniion were born five children: Charles, who passed away at the age of two years; Trilby Carmen Morrison of Perry, Oklahoma; George W. Morrison of Toppenish, Washington; Celestine Chesney of Fairfax; M/Sgt. Barnet Morrison Jr., serving in the Pacific area.

On the 1900 U.S. Census, Osage Reservation, Indian Territory, Barnet Morrison was renting (not owning albeit mortgaged) his farm.The land opening of the Osage Reservation occurred in an 1906 allotment with Osage County developing and joining with the marriage of the Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory at Oklahoma statehood in 1907.However, based upon the above obituary for Barnet Morrison stating they made the 1893 Cherokee Strip run, a patent record will be searched to see if they indeed had a stake.
