Looking for Thomas J. "Slim" Morrow

Somewhere I believe someone will have a story that will help locate my Grandfather. He used the alias Thomas David Carson from 1905 to 1915 and maybe later. I know he was 6'6" tall and probably was a vagrant when he died. I think it might be around Beaumont, Houston or Bexar county as he was arrested in San Antonio and sent back to Hillsboro for vagrancy and minor theft. His Father was Thomas Henry Morrow, a farmer and circuit preacher....left his first wife in Big Springs and went to California with a lady that he had another family with. I have one picture that maybe someone out there has seen it or maybe has one like it. Thanks for any help!ELW

Looking for Grandfather's death after 1914, he was born 1874 in Lampases Texas

Thomas J. Morrow, used the alias Thomas David Carson from 1900 until about 1915. He was one of 12 children born to Thomas Henry Morrow and Elizabeth Brown Morrow. He was 6' 6" tall, dark hair, grey eyes, and had a broken left arm a bit shorter than the right. He served time in Texas, 5 yrs. when he was 18 and 2 yrs. for illegal voting in 1906. He left Hill Co. in 1914 and never returned but was at times seen in San Antonia, Mexico, Larado, Oklahoma, and Sherman and Collin Co., Texas. I am 82 and want so very much to find my Mother's father before I die. I started tracing him in 1960 and by then my Mother was dead. I was living in Tucson in 1966 and read an article about a Morrow border patrol officer being killed and it gave his son's name and I thought the " Carson Morrow" might be a relative. Sure enough, I met my mother's first cousins and the Morrow family and I exchanged pictures and stories as they never knew what happened to their Uncle Thomas J. who ran off in 1882.
