Name: Joseph Graham MorrisonRank: Captain Company: F
Capt. Joseph Graham Morrison born 1 Jun 1842 in Mecklenburg County, Charlotte, NC and died 11 Apr 1906 in Charlotte, NC.
He was the son of Rev. Dr. Robert Hall Morrison, a Presbyterian Minister and the first President of Davidson College, Davidson, NC and Mary Graham.
Joseph was also the brother of Mary Anna Morrison, the wife of Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson, Isabella S. Morrison the wife of Gen. Daniel Harvey Hill, and Eugenia Erixene Morrison the wife of Gen. Rufus Clay Barringer.

Josesph was a student at VMI (Class of 1865) when the war began. He left VMI and was commissioned a Lt. and became an ADC (aide-de-camp) on his brother-in-law Gen. Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson's staff in June 1862. In the Antietam Campaign he was ADC to Gen. Jackson and was with Gen. Jackson when he was mortally wounded at Chancellorsville in May 1863. After Chancellorsville in July 1863 rather than transferring to Gen. Ewell's command with the rest of Gen. Jackson's staff, he joined the staff of Gen. Ramseur. The Morrisons knew the Ramseurs since both had lived in Lincolnton, Lincoln County, North Carolina where the Rev. Dr. Robert Morrison had been the Pastor of Macpelah Presbyterian Church.

In Sep. 1863, Joseph Morrison was transferred to the 57th NC Regiment as Adjutant. By 1865 he was a Captain of Co F, 57th NC Regiment and lost a foot shortly after at Petersburg while away from his regiment visiting Gen. Hoke.

After the war he was suffering from tuberculosis and spent the four years following the war in California recuperating. In 1869, he came home to North Carolina where he was a planter and ran the Mariposa Cotton Mills. He returned to claim the family home upon his father's death in 1889 and himself died at Charlotte, NC on 11 Apr 1906. Capt. Morrison is buried at the Macpelah Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Lincolnton, Lincoln County, NC. He was the husband of Jennie E. Davis.
