Morehead Monuments - Guilford Battle Ground. Of the Morehead monuments the first, erected in 1900, is in memory of Captain James Morehead, of the Tenth Regiment North Carolina Continental line. He was born in 1750 and died in 1835. The second monument is to Mrs. Keren Happuck Turner, grandmother of James and John Morehead, soldiers under General Greene.
