Sources:
Information on Benjamin and Dicey Blanchard Morrison was taken from the Federal Census Sheets 
of 1790 through 1890.  There are also the estate records of Alexander Morrison Sr. dated 
6 December 1819 page 91, in  Cumberland County (later Harnett County) North Carolina .(These 
papers list the names of the sons of Benjamin Morrison.)

The marriage bond of Benjamin and Dicey is in Cumberland County, North Carolina dated 10 March 
1825 with Neill McNeill as the bondsman.

Many death certificates were compared and attached to this book as well as pages from the book  
"Highland Scots - Pattersons of North Carolina and Related Families" by the Rear Admiral Alex M. 
Patterson, copyright 1979 By Alex M. Patterson.  The combination of the death certificates, census 
sheets, estate records and various court papers gave the weight of the proofs used for this research.

The book of Rear Admiral Patterson states that the grave of Ms. Catherine "Katie" Patterson is unknown.
