ACCORDING TO 1860 CENSUS, ALEXANDER MORRIS WAS LIVING WITH JOHN AND EMOLINE. He witnessed an application for a land grant made by John to the state of Tex,

John owned a nice farm at the junction of Corn House Creek and the Tallapoosa River in Randolph County. The family did not
stay many years in Alabama. Perhaps they missed their kin and friends.
Randolph County at that time was a pretty rough territory whereas, Harris
County, GA was well developed and thickly settled. (This insert was sent by Mitchell Satterwhite)

  Notes for BENJAMIN F SATTERWHITE, *:
Hello.
Date:      1/11/00 2:34:28 PM
From:      strwhite@nts-online.net (Mitchell Satterwhite)
To:      HFrady8915@aol.com

econd of three documents:

The following letter was written by Benjamin F. Satterwhite to James Madison
Satterwhite while he was serving in the Civil War.

                              Arkadelphia, Arkansas, Jan 22, 1863
Dear Brother:
      I take the present opportunity to inform you what I am doing. I am in a
cavalry company sent to Arkadelphia to picket and take up deserters, on
their way from the army near Little Rock homeward. We left Little Rock on
the 4th day of this month and came down to this place about 75 miles and
ever since we arrived here we have been very busy. We have taken up some 30
or 40 men, mostly deserters, some of them belonged to a jayhawking party a
little above Arkadelphia. This company left home (Houston County, Texas)
the 1st day of July, 1863 and has been near Little Rock most of the time
since. Francis and John W. Fambrough (Celia's husband) are with me. Some
months ago I saw a Mr. Cook who built a house for you and then moved to
Texas, who informed me that you were in a hospital in Charleston, S.C. and I
have been laying off ever since to write to you but have been too busy. I
got a letter from home a few days ago and they stated in that letter, that
they were all about. Martha died the 13th of last June, a little before we
left home. Alex has been drafted since we left. Louisa's husband
(Washington) was in the service at Corinth last spring and was discharged.
I went to Vicksburg last winter and staid with Uncle Edmund Morris till he
died. He died the 9th day of March. He made his will before his death and
willed all his property to mother. He left 3 negroes, and one note that
called for eight hundred and seventy five dollars, bearing 8 percent
interest from the 24th of Nov, 1860, to be payed the 1st day of Jan, 1862,
and reliable citizens of Vicksburg say the assigner and the endorsement is
as good as any men in (word intelligible). I left the note with the judge
of criminal court at Vicksburg and took his receipt for it. Uncle Edmund
appointed me his executor, and I took out letter testamentory, but the
conscript law being passed in April, it didn't give me any time to wind up
the business. He owed three or four hundred dollars, and I settled a part
of it. The negroes wanted to stay in Vicksburg, and Uncle Edmund requested
me to sell them. I did so. One of them was a nice young fellow, and one
young woman, but she was not healthy, and one woman fifty years old. The
1st sold for $1125.00, the 2nd for $800.00 and the 3rd for $250.00. I
carried the money to Texas and Pappa bought one young negro woman and child
for $1000.00, and one negro boy for $600.00 (about 10 or 12 years old). I
stated in the 1st of this letter that he willed all of his property to
mother. When he bought the negro fellow he took the bill of sale in
Edmund's name and consequently it needed not be mentioned in the will. The
negro sold for $1175.00 and was about 35 years old and was not to fall into
Edmund's hands till he was 21 years old, and the negro boy Pappa bought was
for Edmund and I think he will be worth more to him than the other. I want
you to write me when you get this letter and give my respects to all my
acquaintances with you. You may direct your letter to Capt. D.A. Nunns Cav.
Company, Arkadelphia, Arkansas. John Fambrough is detailed to Texas after
deserters and Francis is out on a scout. The men are all detailed our of my
(word intelligible) and must close to cook my dinner. So nothing more, but
I remain, your brother, till death.
                                          Benj. F. Satterwhite
Capt. D.A. Nunns Cavalry Co.
Arkadelphia, Ark.

1. The "Edmund" mentioned must have been a younger brother of Benjamin.
2. Benjamin F. Satterwhite was the only child of John and Emoline
Satterwhite born in Alabama. John had a nice farm at the junction of Corn
House Creek and the Tallapoosa River in Randolph County. The family did not
stay many years in Alabama. Perhaps they missed their kin and friends.
Randolph County at that time was a pretty rough territory whereas, Harris
County, GA was well developed and thickly settled.
3. We do not know the exact relationship of "Uncle" Edmund Morris at
Vicksburg, Miss. to the Satterwhite family. [Benjamin's mother's (Emoline)
maiden name was Morris. It makes perfect sense, then, that she had a
brother (who would have been an uncle to young Benjamin and James Madison)
who died and might have bequeathed certain items to his sister. DMS]
