Hi,
Re Benjamin C Morris: I just pulled the Company K Blount County 19th Alabama Infantry record from Robin Sterling's Blount County site. It is from the microfilmed Compiled Confederate Service Records with supplementary info from other sources on record. (You can find it on Google.com by typing in 19th Alabama Infantry)

In this record, it states that Benjamin C Morris died 17 Dec 1891 and was buried in New Hope Cemetery #2 near Holly Pond, Cullman County, Alabama. I looked the cemetary index up on the internet and Benjamin Morris is listed.
Cullman County was created partly from Blount County so he probably never moved. Have not found Cariann's death record or burial site.
Per the record, it was Leonard who was buried in Ozro Cemetery.
Also, please note that the census has a typo re the second son's name. His correct name is Seborn Thomas Morris. He married Martha Ophelia Long in Texas and was buried at Maypearl, TX which is near the Ozro Cemetery. Seborn moved there in 1870. Two of the witnesses on his pension aplication were his sister, Mary Jackson, and his brother Leonard both of whom were living in Ellis County, Texas in
Sept 1914.
My husband is descended from Seborn.
I am interested in any sources you have for your records and want to know more about Cariann's ancesters.
Barbara Polk
