Description

G.W. Hayman is searching for his uncle Philip Morton. He was born on Beaver Dam Creek in Green County, GA. He belonged to Robert Rea. He lived there until he was five years old, after which he came to Alabama. When he was 18, he was brought to Arkansas by Thomas Oliver. The overseer's name was Anderson Bussey who lived in Columbia County. He belonged to Cornelius Rea. He used to go by the name Rea, but his parents have changed their names to Joseph and Alzaro Morton. He has only one sister, Sarah Ann, who married Nelson Holston, now Heyman. Philip left two years before the Civil War ended with a man by the name of Shrug Rea.
