description Morley Sabine Acorn was born in Lower Montague in 1870 to Charles and Caroline (Sabine) Acorn. His maternal grandmother was Martha Jago, noted minister and preacher of the 1830s. Morley's family moved to Souris where he worked at the Klondyke Lumber Mill managed by his brother Herbert, (and known locally as "Acorn's Mill"). Both brothers later served terms as mayor of Souris. Here Morley spent the rest of his life, marrying Gussie Muttart, daughter of Dr. E.B. Muttart. Like A.W. Mitchell, a Charlottetown photographer previously profiled, Acorn was fond of music. He was a member of the Souris Citizens' Band, and his fine bass voice could be heard in community concerts and at the Souris Methodist Church.
