Thank You for your service you gave the citizens of Bowie County. I'm so proud to have followed in your foot steps in Law Enforcement. I'm currently with the Tarrant County
Sheriff's Dept. in Fort Worth, Texas. I, started my Law Enforcement career in 1973 with the Texarkana Police Dept. and then with the Bowie County Sheriff Dept. . No one in our family had known about you until I started and then my Dad, David Morgn told me that my Great GrandFather was killed in the line of duty. Upon on checking we could not find anything until Officer Down Memorial we were looking at an friend of ours. Oh, Granddad you had 2 grandsons, and 1 great grandson and 2 great grand duaghters.
