Abner Frank Morton
"Frank Morton, an only child, was one of Iredell County's first public school teachers and was known as Frank the School Teacher. He was also skilled at fencing and sword competition.
Frank attended Davidson College and had a teacher there by the name of Peter Stuart Ney, who designed the Davidson seal. Ney was famous for being the Marquis of France who escaped the firing squad of King Louis XVII.
Almost one hundred years after his death, some papers which he had written were published in the Statesville Landmark.
Frank had four children when he died. His wife, Martha, had two more children after his death."
