After the Civil War Morris and most of his family moved to Baxter County,Arkansas.James Winn Savage and wife Martha Jane Smallwood moved to Walker County,Alabama.These were the parents of Addaline Savage who married James Marion Cobb of Walker County.It is believed that this lineage goes back to Ensign Thomas Savage who came as a cabin boy on the ship " John and Frances " to Virginia's eastern shore in 1607 age 13 years old, was traded to Chief Powhatan for an indian, and remained with the indians for several years and learned their language.He was given the land now know as Savages Neck, in Accomack County,Virginia, by Chief Powhatan,where he was shown on the 1623 census, as
"Ancient ( Ensign ) Thomas Savage ". He died before 1635 leaving one son John whose descendants are named in wills of Northampton County,Virginia ( formerly Accomack)
