Billie Samuel P.Morton's first wife was Vashti Callaway. She is buried in a cemetery on an island in the Yadkin/Pee Dee River. Samuel P Morton was the first court clerk of Stanly county, and also minister at old Ebenezer Baptist Church, now Badin Baptist. Samuel P.is buried in a cemetery in Anson Co....Red Hill, if I remember correctly. I would like to know if he had children by Vashti Callaway. Sherrill

Sherill: Thanks you for your response. It is good to know where Vashti is buried. Do you have a picture of her headstone? I did not know that Rev. Samuel P. Morton was a minister at Ebenezer Baptist Church now Badin Baptist. I knew he was a teacher and minister at Rocky River Baptist and a minister at Red Hill Baptist Church. Perhaps we can share information. Please keep in touch. Billie

I am also researching MORTON. I have sketchy info, but am willing to share. My gggrandfather Thomas Hawkins Hall married Sarah Morton (Carter) daughter of Rev. Samy P. Morton and Vashti Calloway. I do not know if there were other children of the marriage. Vashti was born 12-23-1844 in Palmertown, N. C. and died 9-24-1887 in Anson Co., N. C. according to the info I have. I do not check this site often, so please email email@example.com.
