James Morrow is listed in the 1880 census for Livingston County with his daughter Elsie. His probate file is #4226 in the Livingston County Circuit Clerk's office. I don't know the date of his death. From the 1878 Livingston County History Book: "JAMES E. MORROW, President of the National Bank of Pontiac, has been a resident of Livingston Co., since 1857, having come at that time from Highland Co., Ohio, where he was born on the 23d of Sept., 1836 ; in 1859, he went to California, and was there at the breaking out of the war. Returning in 1862, he entered the army as a member of Co. G, 129th I. V. I., and served until the close of the war, in the 20th Army Corps ; he was with Gen. Sherman in his march to the sea. On the close of the war, he returned to Pontiac, and took a clerkship in the office of Duff & Cowan. In 1868, he was elected Clerk of the Circuit Court of Livingston Co., holding the office four years ; he has been a member of the Board of Supervisors for the past six years, and as Chairman of the Building Committee, and the only resident member of the board, had almost the entire charge of building the new Court House; the efficient manner in which the work was performed, and his vigilance in looking after the interests of the county, are evident from the fact that the building was erected at a loss to the contractors, and a consequent corresponding gain to the county; he has also served one term on the Board of Aldermen. He organized the National Bank of Pontiac, March, 1874, and was elected President. He was married Sept. 11, 1866, to Miss Elizabeth J. Maxwell, of Pontiac, who died July 4, 1872, leaving one child — Elsie E."
