Llewelyn Morris, Grandfather of Alan Morris.

Llewelyn Morris was my grandfather, he died when I was still only two years old & I am sorry to say I have no memory of him at all. I have also heard Llewelyn referred to as Llew, a shortened version of his real name & Jack. I can find no reason for him to have been called Jack.
