A large lock of golden hair, perhaps 200 strands, curled but likely 5” long, is tied together with a blue ribbon. The lock is housed in a simple fold sheet of paper with a typed note, “lock of my dear brother Willies hair. He shorn his golden locks on May 7, 1861 and joined the army a week later. He died at the hands of the damned yankees at the battle of Fayetville on September 10, 1862. He was a good boy and we miss him more than I can say. Fitting the dates we find William Steinburgh Morgan who enlisted may 13 into Company A of the 36th Virginia and was killed September 10, 1862 at Fayetteville West Virginia.
