PIONEER OF STATE DIES AT BERKELEY
BERKELEY, Dec. 13-Frank Morris, a pioneer of the state and a resident of Berkeley for more than twenty years, passed away yesterday afternoon at his late residence, 2?13 Blake street. Death came after a brief attack of bronchial pneumonia, and its suddenness was a shock to relatives and friends.
The deceased was born March 31, 1840, and came to California around the Horn in the early sixties. He resided in Napa Valley for a score of years and was married to Miss Marion Patas in Mendocino county in 1873. He came to Berkeley more than twenty years ago and was engaged in business there until his death. He leaves a wife and three children, Anna CG Morris of Berkeley, WG Morris of Oakland, and Frank Morris, of Sacramento. Interment will be at St. Mary's cemetery, Oakland.
