    Notes 
    • From S. L. Morris--An Autobiography:

      Characteristics.

      Samuel, my grandfather, the youngest child [of Samuel and Lucy Stevens Morris], married Margaret McCullough, January 25, 1816, who was born in 1791, five years his senior. He was for many years an elder in Cedar Springs Church. This tribute by his pastor is inscribed on his monument:

      IN
      MEMORY OF
      SAMUEL MORRIS, ESQ.
      BORN MARCH 7, 1796
      DIED AUGUST 1, 1841
      A man full of the Holy Ghost and faithful in all
      his house and ruled well in the Church of God.
      The Memory of the Just is Blessed.

      By reason of education and character he was, perhaps, the most prominent citizen in the community, and known far and wide for his integrity, and as "Squire Morris."
