Note: From "The Morton Story" by Douglas Morton, p. 9:
"Due to the untimely death of his father, Richard come into a substantial inheritance soon after he and Arminta were married. Like his father he was not permitted a long life, he died in 1888 or 1889 at the age of about 30 years and was buried in the Faulkner Cemetery. Mose Morton, a second cousin of Richard, told me that 'Richard had killed a man by the name of Landdale at Levee, in Montgomery County I haven't taken the time to research this matter, but by calculation of Richard's age that incident would probably have occurred between 1884 and 1889.
"Arminta was left a widow with at lease two young sons, they were Alvin Thomas Morton about four years of age, and Caswell (Cas) Morton, two years old. It was rumored that Arminta's second husband William McDonald used the boys' inheritance for his personal benefit and the boys had a very rough childhood."
