  • Though Becky Tull’s parents resided in Switzerland County, Ind., she would be born in Carroll County, since Tull’s father brought his wife to be with her parents in Carroll County for her delivery. This was fitting, because although Tull would live in many places throughout her life, her roots would be in Carroll County where she was born.

    That was in 1921, and her parents, Herbert and Florence Bell Wood Morgan, would have a total of six children, who Tull would help to raise when her mother died ten years later.
