Smith and Hester Morris, Niles, Ohio

Just found this old Photo Postcard in a shop in Phoenix, Az. The image isnt the clearest

Backside reads “Smith and Hester Morris, 236 Arlington St, Niles, Ohio  Year 1917″ I googled the address and came up with the house which is still standing, dated 1900. I always love looking and seeing where people once lived, helps to visualize them at a point in time. You can view it on Google Maps

In the 1920 Census there is a Hester A Morris(B 1892) and a Smith M. Morris(B 1886) in Youngstown Ward 9, Mahoning, Ohio. They were both born in PA

I have also found info from a book from the history of Clinton County, Ohio that names a Hester A Morris who married an Amos Smith. So this could go either way, although I believe Hester and Amos were married in the earlier 1800s and that wouldnt match up correct with the date on the photo as they look young in it and it appears he died before 1900.
