States: North Carolina: Watauga
I am seeking information on Levi Morphew (Murphey) of Company D (Watauga County, NC) of the 1st North Carolina Cavalry in the Civil War. He left some letters or a diary that I cannot find in any archives (Raleigh, Duke, UNC, etc.), but they are quoted on web sites concerning the history of the 1st North Carolina Cavalry. The web site masters do not know where these quotations came from. Do you know where these letters/diary might be kept? Or, do you know anyone who might? I am writing a biography on Gen. Rufus Barringer, who commanded the 1st, and I would like to use some of the quotations - but I want to know the source. Thansk for any help.
