Stanly/Montgomery/Anson; also NC CSA Mortons

Please help me sort out this part of the Morton family from Stanly/Montgomery/Anson Counties in NC:

I am looking for the parents and siblings of William H. Morton (Oct 1833 - 1915) + Mary A (Feb 1844) who had children Eudellus? (abt 1868), Albert (abt 1869), William T (abt 1871), Mary E (abt 1873), Benjamin F (1875), Fanny (1877) Bulah B (1879), Julia P (Nov 1882), Valora P (Dec 1885). I see that this William H. Morton could be the son of William Morton (1801), son of Ezekiel Morton and Elizabeth Brumbelow.

However, I can't seem to find the descendants of this William Morton, (abt 1801). Could it be this family found on page 3 of the 1850 Census in Albermarle, Stanly County, NC:
       - William Morton (49), Frances (45), Alex (20), William (16), Hannah (12), Peter (11), Eliza (1?)

Living close to them on page 3 is also an Adaline Morton (19), who I imagine could be there daughter; she is living with Martha Smigg (73), next to the J.R.P. Smigg (33) family.

Also living nearby are the Dominec/Domineck Morton (page 1), and son Armistead L. (page 2) families. Is this William (1801) a possible brother to Dominic, or is he the son of Ezekiel & Elizabeth?

Also, where does David L. Morton (abt 1838) fit into the Morton family? He is living in Albemarle, Stanly Co., NC (p. 130) in 1860 with wife Elmira (abt 1838), and sons, Alex B (abt 1857) and William D (abt 1859). He is living next door to my Benjamin and Mary C. Morton (abt 1824) Barnwell, so I wonder if he is related to Mary.

Moving onto 1870, there are four Morton families living in Lilesville, Anson County, NC. Can anyone place these families?
       - Nathan Morton       page 379
       - Monroe       page 381
       - Peter              page 370
       - Solomon       page 397
       - W. Morton       page 397 Morven,AnsonCounty, NC

Lastly, I found the following Mortons faught within the same Confederate regiments AND companies; can anyone verify who belongs with whom?

14th NC Infantry, Co. C the "Anson Guards": Alexander B, George A, George D, Peter F, and my William H
42nd Regt, Co. C: David L., David S., Hezekiah, Thomas, William A.

I have just ordered the death certficate for William H. Morton (1833 - 1915), but hope to tie in some other family members while I wait for the mail! I appreciate any information that you have, and am very willing to share what I have come across as well.
Thank you!
