Memphis Daily Appeal
April 1870

Captain Morgan M. Bateman died yesterday morning at 3 o'clock, after a short illness. The Captain was a pioneer Boatman, and was among the first pioneers of the bluff. He has been engaged in steamboating for over twenty years. during that time he has built and commanded some of the best boats on the river. He is well known throughout the State of Arkansas, having steamboated principally on the Arkansas and white rivers. The last boat he commanded was the R.P. Walt. At the breaking out of the war he raised a company of cavalry at Jacksonport, Arkansas, and led them gallantly in many hard battles fought in the Trans-Mississippi Department. He served with distinction through the war, and came out like many others--penniless. He was a quiet, unobtrusive and peacable citizen, and was loved and respected by all who knew him. His funeral will take place this morning from his late residence on Lauderdale street, near Hernando road. Steamboatmen and citizens are respectfully invited to attend the funeral. The boats in port displayed their flags at half-mast in respect to his memory.

He married Anne Elizabeth Edwards in Shelby County May 11 1854.
