A Cavalryman in the War of 1812 — Joseph P. Floyd (uncle of Olivia Floyd and Francis Reed Wills) rides daringly to escape from the “British”.
Recollection of the early Mortons of Stafford Co. (page 1, page 2) by Mrs. Annie (Morton) Dix, daughter of James Morton of Stafford County, Va. We have two pages of typewritten notes passed on by the late Nancy Moncure (Ralls) Southworth. It is is not clear who compiled the text we have, but the compiler properly comments that this text seems to have two parts: 1) most of the first page, in the voice of Mrs. Dix, “I only know as far back as my great-grandmother, who was Ursula Brightwell Morton.” 2) Starting at the bottom of the first page in the voice of James Morton, “My father, Richard Morton, came from Maryland”. The two parts differ in a few details, but are basically complementary, the first part mostly about Morton descendants, and the second part about the Wallers.
