“A photo found in a scrapbook from the Duke family and donated by George Duke to the museum. This is the grave marker for Morrison Hayes, who died while serving his country during the Great War, on July 20, 1918. Hayes was born November 12, 1895 to Elizabeth Morrison and Clark Hayes.
There is a service marker in Woodlawn Cemetery honoring his memory, and of course, our American Legion Post is named for him. Morrison is buried at the Aisene-Marne American Cemetery in France. This photo is probably from the 1920’s.”
