Lelia was the daugh­ter of John T. E. and Oliv­ia E. Nay­lor, and wife of Charles Ham­mond Mor­ris (mar­ried 1881).

As a child, she lived in Mal­ta and Mc­Con­nels­ville, Ohio. She was ac­tive in the Me­tho­dist church, and was oft­en at camp meet­ings (e.g., Old Camp Sy­char, Mt. Ver­non, Ohio, and Se­bring Camp in Se­bring, Ohio)

She be­gan song writ­ing in the 1890’s, au­thor­ing more than 1,000 Gos­pel songs. When her eyes be­gan to fail in 1913, her son built a 28-foot black­board with ov­er­sized staff lines, so she could con­tin­ue com­pos­ing.

She and her hus­band moved in with her daugh­ter, Mrs. Fran­ces Lunk, in Au­burn, Ohio, around 1928.
