I had alway heard 2 stories of the death of Richard Morris, Sr. 1-Renegades came and stole his horses, he said if they came back he would kill them, they did and he did, then another renegade came back and killed him. (2)Renegades were working with Union soldiers, Richard Morrris, Sr. killed one of them and then he was killed by one of the Union soldier. Now I don't know much about the Civil War in the Keokee, Lee Co VA area (which I believe was called Crab Apple Orchard or something like that) where Richard Morris, Sr. lived but I never really believed the above stories from what little I know about the Civil War. I work in an emergency room, I have noted that almost all violence takes place between people who know each other, usually are related in some way (awful statement about our society isn't it). The suspected father of Thomas Clarkston, George Clarkson, was hung in the State of Franklin for the murder of his son-in-law who had beat his daughter. I can't help you prove your story but if it means anything I would tend to believe it.
