Patrick Henry Morris enlisted in the 8th Arkansas Cavalary, Company C, on Jan. 10, 1863 at Pleasant Plains, AR as "H. Morris." The source for this information is the website "The Original Arkansas Genealogy Project, Civil War" at http://www.couchgenweb.com/civilwar. Look under 8th Arkansas Cavalry, then under Company C. The 8th Arkansas Cavalry was first called "Newton's Fifth." You can also find out more at the National Park Service's Civil War Soldiers and Sailors web site; it includes a basic look up for a soldier's name and some basic regimental history.
I have more information about his service from the book about the WVA-AR Morrises written by James Morris. So far I haven't found anything about Madison, Thomas Jefferson, or George Lewis' Civil War service, but I'll keep looking in the book. Feel free to contact me. Patrick Henry was my GG-Grandfather.
