Bettie S. Morris was a Hillsborough, NC resident. Her descendants were still living in Hillsborough, NC at the time of Mary Claire Engstrom's research into the lives of the students who attended the Burwell School .
Bettie S. Morris was almost certainly the daughter of tavern-keeper Robert F. Morris. She is listed in the Burwell School Catalogue of 1848-51  and presumably was a student in the late 1840's, about the time of Robert F. Morris's purchase of Faddis Tavern in Hillsborough, NC. She would have been a day student residing with her family at the tavern. The Thomas B. Morris listed as a student in the Catalogue of the Caldwell Institute 1848-1849  (printed by Dennis Heartt) would likely have been Bettie S. Morris's brother.
