Searching for Edward Fred Morris, Washington, D.C., b. 1890

My research is focused on Alcatraz escapee Frank Lee Morris and his lineage. I'm searching for any leads on his potential father Edward Fred Morris, as well as his family.

Edward Morris was a white construction or marine engineer, address 1310 D St., SE, Washington D.C. on September 1, 1926. On that date, he was 36 years old (born circa 1890.) I believe he was a renter at the time, since the house was in the process of being sold and his name doesn't appear anywhere in the sales ad or the deed.

Edward Morris received a marriage license to wed Thelma Marie Phillips (of D.C. & Rockville, MD) in May 1926, but the marriage reportedly only lasted a few months. In the local newspaper's marriage license notice, he was named as "Eddie F. Morris."

I've found individuals who closely meet the description, but no one who really matches that timeline in D.C. or the surrounding states. Any help would be much appreciated!
