Richard Anthony Dickey Morris
Birth: Dec. 12, 1797
Rutherford County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Sep., 1878
Henderson County
North Carolina, USA

He was the son of Thomas Morris and Catharine Dickey. He married Lucinda McLean on Jan 31 1822, in Rutherford County. The couple had nine documented children.
He was a farmer, a justice of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Session of Henderson County, county school commissioner, and was active in the political, social and religious life of Henderson County for 50 years.

He and his wife lived in the Green River Township. Based on the neighbors who lived near them on the different census reports, it is not clear if they lived closer to the Mountain Page community or the Zirconia community.
On the last census report they lived in the Green River Township with a Flat Rock post office. This most likely means they lived in the Zirconia community close to Flat Rock.

It is not known why he would be buried in this cemetery as it was not near to his home.
The grave stone of his wife has not been located.
