Recollection of Mrs. Annie (Morton) Dix, daughter of James Morton of Stafford County, Va.
We have two pages of typewritten notes about the Mortons of Stafford County 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:
- a) in the voice of Mrs. Dix (most of the first page), “I only know as far back as my great-grandmother, who was Ursula Brightwell Morton.”
- b) in the voice of James Morton (starting at the bottom of the first page), “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 Waller family.
