At the beginning of the war he raised a company of 100 horsemen which became Co. F of the 1ST North Carolina Cavalry. This company was known as the Cabarrus Rangers. I was going to ask what the meaning of "Cabarrus" was but I see it's a county in North Carolina.

I believe that his first wife, Eugenia Morrison, was the sister of Mary Ann Morrison who was married to Stonewall Jackson. Another sister, Isabella Sophia Morrison, was married to General D. H. Hill.
