I am looking for information on JB Morrison a carpenter from St. Paul, MN who moved to Miles City c. 1909. He is named in the Yellowstone Monitor, The Wibaux Pioneer, The Ekalaka Eagle, The Daily Missoulian and the Producers News. The Wibaux Pioneer says he is "the contractor who built a number of the most substantial buildings in our little city". He is my great-grandfather and I am searching for more information on which buildings he contracted, if they are still in existence and if there are any photos of him. He was a member of the St. Paul carpenters union before departing for Montana and I also believe that he was a member of the Elk Lodge. His son, A. J. Morrison was living in Butte and was tragically electrocuted while working as a lineman for the Butte Electric and Power Company (1911). Thanks for reading my post! Ideas of where to search are welcome. Keep in mind, I live out of state.
