"Moses Morris, 'City's Youngest Old Man,' Dies" - 11 Feb 1936

"'Pinochle Champion' Passes 3 Months Before 100th Birthday - Three months short of 100 years, Moses Morris, 'San Francisco's youngest old man,' died yesterday after a week's illness. He was active until his death, read without glasses, and enjoyed the movies. Three years ago he boasted that he 'hadn't been beaten in pinochle since the Civil War.' He ate and drank as his taste dictated and never worried about his age.

"Retired at 90 - Born in Germany in 1836, he came to California at 30, was active in business in Modesto and Stockton. There, he was a charter member of the B'nai B'rith Lodge. He retired from business in San Francisco at 90, not out of personal desire but to satisfy the requests of his sons.

"Funeral Today - He is survived by his daughter, Mrs. Lesser Rehfeld, 357 Fifteenth Avenue, with whom he made his home, two sons, Isadore and Samuel Morris; three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. today at Halsted-Dierks & Co. parlors. Intermet will be follow at Salem Cemetery."
