Just curious....where did John Haton Morris, Sr. come from?
I'm looking for my ancestor John H. Morris who married in 1820 in Augusta Co., VA to Rebecca Chapman. One of his daughters, Frances Jane Morris, married Henry Kosciusko Dettor and her sister, Jennie, married Dave Ward.
Henry Dettor enlisted in the Confederate service in 1862 in Lee Co., VA. He was paroled at the end of the war on 07 May 1865 at Cumberland Gap,KY. I have not been able to located Henry and family between 1865 to about 1878 when he said in his CSA petition that he arrived in Panola Co., MS.
I have often wondered WHY he enlisted in Lee Co., VA in 1862 as he was living in Washington Co., VA in the 1860 census. I thought perhaps he might have had relatives in Lee County. Any connection to MORRIS and WARD in that county could be clues. When I saw the "Haton" as a middle name, I couldn't help but wonder if my own John "H" Morris, might be connected. Any help appreciated.
