C.D. MORRIS 1826-1905 NC>TX>AR

I need info on Commodore Decatur Morris, 1826-1905. I have a copy of his death certificate which lists his birthplace as Greenwood Co., NC, but there has never been a county, only Greenwood Townships in Lee Co. and Moore Co. I have no information on his first marriage, though I speculate that it was in AL and he had at least one son from it before she died. He married second Sallie Vincent Nesmith of Lowell, Mass. in 1873 and had three children: Robert Decatur, Ruth Ildica and my g-g-grandmother Orriette Virginia Morris, who married William Burt Brooks in Little Rock, AR. C.D. Morris spent some time in Texas as a politician in the 1870s before returning to AR as a merchant and dying there in 1905.
