Tipperary Bill. William Morris.
William Morris plays the role of offsider to Bully Hayes. The articles below tell of his execution for the murder of Thomas Doak in San Francisco.
Of interest to us is his movements across the world. No doubt of Irish descent you will remember from our maps page that it was a Morris that ran the Telegraph Inn at Campaspie, Victoria in early 1850's.
Several men with different spellings of the name Morris are listed as passengers aboard the Madagascar however we believe William Morris would have travelled as crew alongside Bully Hayes.
