Re: Walden-Chesnut-Langston Connections

Some of the info I have on Morris is from oral history. My father lived with Morris' daughter Charity after his parents died. The 1867 Madison, Florida census is the earliest census in which I can find him. There are a few Morris Sampsons in the Civil War research but there are no detailed military records. I remember my father speaking of the Chesnutt's but that's all I remember. I have some folks in Madison, Florida, helping me look for more information. I have discovered so far that he was very active in the politics of the day and had received votes for Florida governor in, I believe, 1880. He was murdered shortly thereafter. A professor who wrote a biography on Jonathan Gibbs, the first secretary of state, and she suggested that I go to the Florida Archives and go thru the mountain of papers, correspondence, etc., that may have interviews or other papers related to my great grandfather. I did find papers related to Sheriff David Montgomery, the first af-amer sheriff of Madison (he and Morris worked together), so I am hopeful that I will find something. The Family History Center (Mormons) have some of this, but they say I will have to go to Florida myself for more extensive research.
