Now I wil give you the history of fa ther family f irst he did mar ry to Lidy Witt had 3 (remainder of lett er is gone!) Th is letter SAYS th at Richard WAS married to a Lidy Wit t.

It gives cause of death as exposu re when family fled fr om buswha ckers). ------ Beverly Reach Perry; Mar 2 002; Birth record for ' Maliny MORRIS,' Oct. 1 5, 1858, Harlan Co, Kentuck y; parents Richard MORR IS and Elizabeth CLAR K. Could this be Lydia? So ld horses for a living. T wo versions of how he died, according to my moth er: Some renegades ca me a nd stole his horses one night and he said if th ey came back he'd ki ll the m. They did and he did. Then one of the renega des came back and kil led hi m. The other story is that the renegades we re working with Union so ldie rs and he killed one then they killed him. F rom 'The Heritage of Wi se Co, Virginia,' by Charles Garrison: 'Duri ng t he Civil War, Dick was ki lled and his house was burned by a memb er or memb ers of a family with whi ch he had previously had trouble. O ne story is th at the trouble involv ed the theft of one or more horses th at belonged to D ick. The thieves app arently stole the horse (or horse s) for sale to the [U nion] army. Dick 's widow fled to her family's hom e, near what is now Keok ee in neighbori ng Lee Co, with Pearl and Pearl 's younger brother. Pearl w as about five y ears old at the time. Dick Mor ris is buried at Keokee. 'Additional informa tion on Richard Morris is pro vided by the Big Stone G ap Post (May 12, 190 2), which states that Richa rd Morris shot and killed J ohn Garrison (no re lation to the present auth or) in 1863. According to T he Post, John Garris on was buried on top of B ig Black Mountain near Crab O rchard. (Crab Orcha rd was the name of the a rea in which the town of Keok ee later was built .) The Post corresponde nt states further: 'Mr. Morris th at done the killi ng was the fath er of R. P. Morris and John W. Morris, w ho lives on t op of Powell Mounta in.' The reason that this item appear ed in The Po st in 1902 was that t wo drilling men of the Interstate Investm ent Compa ny had been explori ng the area and had visited the John Garris on Rock Hou se on Big Black Mo untain. It is possible that Richard Morris w as killed l ater by membe rs of John Garrison's family, although The Po st is sile nt on this point .' Note: Jane Garrison, Richard's first wife, had both a f ather and a bro th er named John Garrison. 1835 Lee Co, Virginia Personal P roperty Tax Li st ;<http://www.geocities.co m/valee1835/VaLee1835.txt>: GAR RISON, John j unr; GARRISON, John senr \\\\ Crackers Neck History; Near B ig Stone Ga p, Virginia; Elevation - 1605; Inf ormation given by Joe Dort on & Jo hn W.

He was the father of Uncle John Morris and Au nt Pearl. \\ \\ 1 M ay 2006 from Lila (Garrison) Reach I wanted to tell you that my gra ndmothe r, Eliza Morris Moore, told me t he story of the death of Richa rd (Dic k) Pearl Morris, Sr. I remember ve ry well the day she told me t he stor y. I have seen postings that said th at he was hung. My grandmot her sa id that he was shot (in the back). A nd she also said that Ellen der W AS pregnant at this time. Although my gr andmother did not te ll me who t old her the story, I always presumed it w as her father, Richa rd Pearl Mor ris, Jr.

I think very few people know the burial place of Richard (Dick) Peal M or ri s, Sr. I told Ansel Payne the burial place and he made very nice p ict ur es that you posted. I saw a posting that Dick was buried in t he Gar ris on Cemetery. This is wrong! Lila
