PREFACE. 



To all patrons of this work, inquisitive to know the origin and antiquity of 
the name of Morse, the subscriber would respectfully observe that the results 
of a partial investigation favor belief in a Norman origin of very high antiqui- 
ty. Complete certainty may yet be attained. Different modes of spelling 
names which have in this country been considered as identical, have prevailed 
in England for four hundred years, denoting distinct names. The want of uni- 
formity in the orthography of our ancient records, and in the signatures of 
members of the same family, has embarrassed him in determining the origi- 
nal transatlantic mode of spelling some of the names heading the following 
catalogue. None but the race of Samuel are ascertained to have observed 
uniformity. As he stands recorded Morse in England, so he and his have ever 
since written their names. In the autograph of Joseph, the same spelling is 
preserved ; but his son John, an excellent clerk, wrote his own name Morsse, 
and the names of his nephews, uniformly Morss. Others of this family adopt- 
ed a fourth mode of spelling. 

Anthony and William, at the time of their embarkation, were registered 
Morss ; and this manner of spelling was adopted by a part of their descend- 
ants, while another part uniformly signed their names Morse. The autographs 
of Anthony, sen., and of his brothers, William and Robert, still preserved, are 
spelt Morse. The former mode, however, was from the first generally observed 
in Town and Church records : and all the confusion may be attributed to clerks 
who led one another astray, and finally some of the race ; and perhaps to 
draftsmen, who by misspelling the name in wills and deeds, created a necessity 
for its adoption to secure property. 

John of New Haven, and the four first generations of his race, signed their 
names Moss ; and a highly respected part of his descendants have retained this 
spelling to the present day ; while others have exchanged Moss for the more 
common name of Morse. 

It appears then that the families here traced, have derived their cognomen 
from two distinct names in Europe. 

Moss is a very ancient name. Its claim to a high antiquity is justified by 
the great extent of its range and its early occurrence in History. If any of 
this name are referred to in Dooms Book, none but his official title is given, 
which is not improbable : for as early as 1177, at the conclusion of a treaty 
in the Foedera, between Henry II. and William of Sicily, a Dignitary is in- 
troduced, adding " Ego Justus Mazz, Episcopus," and giving his testimony and 
sanction. Now when it is considered that Henry inherited Normandy, and 
was only great grandson to the Conqueror ; that the feudal system in his reign 
held the Saxons in vassalage ; that the monarch would have been jealous of a 
foreigner, and that a more efficient instrument of papal policy and ambition 
might have been found among the king's own countrymen than among foreign- 



IV PREFACE. 

ers, to sanction or negative his treaties, it is inferred that Bishop Mazz was a 
Norman. Difference of orthography is not conclusive against the identity of 
Mazz and Moss ; for on our records, if not mistaken, I have found the former 
spelling substituted for the latter ; and the name of Mazz seems not to have 
been perpetuated unless in the form of Moss. But as this personage was a 
Bishop, and lower or Sir names had not yet been introduced, the only infer- 
ence to be drawn is one favorable to the Norman origin and great antiquity of 
the name. 

Camden, who wrote his remains about 250 years ago, has classed " Mosse '' 
with local names. But from what locality on the north side of the channel it 
was derived, he does not inform us ; while he maintains that there was no an- 
cient town, village or hamlet in Normandy which did not give name to some 
family in England. 

If Moss * Avas a local name and originated in Normandy, it was not im- 
probably derived from the Latin, Mos, (fashion) with another s added, after the 
northern custom, to express the plural and denote a place of fashions : or the 
Normans might have brought the name from Moss, a seaport of Norway, 60 
miles S. of Christiana, as the Norwegians seem to have afterwards done to Moss, 
a seaport in the north of Ireland, and as the Saxons had previous brought the 
name of Angle from Denmark to England. Moss had doubtless been the na- 
tal place of many a Norman. Its situation was admirably secure and central 
as a rendezvous of the sea kings ; and there they might have gathei-ed before 
their descent upon France and final settlement in Normandy. Here, although 
they through commerce and intermarriages with their neighbours, soon ex- 
changed their language for the French, yet they retained their Scandinavian 
words long after the Conquest, and very probably the name of Moss. The 
towns of Moston, Moss-Fen, and Mossdale in England seem to have taken the 
names of original proprietors : And who but Norman proprietors or their heirs 
were ancient enough to have given them their names? 

But however derived, the name of Moss has a vast range. It occurs among 
the Jews, the Celtic Irish, and with circumstantial differences among the Saxon 
nations upon the Continent. In England it has long been a common and hon- 
ored name. " Bt. Rev. Charles Moss, D. D., was Bishop of Bath and "Wells 
in the last century, and had a son who was Bishop of Oxford, and a daughter 
who married the under secretaiy cf state under Lord Grenville. Bartholo- 
mew Moss, M. D., was the founder of the lying-in Hospital at Dublin. John 
Moss, Esq., Banker of Otterspool, is father-in-law to "Walker Ferrand, Esq., of 
Harden Grauge who was lately M. P. for Tralee," and the name has not been 
rare among the clergy of the establishment. 

The name of Morse also claims a high antiquity. It first occurs A. D. 1358, 
in the reign of Edward III. As a journey was about to be undertaken into 
France during a truce with that countiy and the captivity of her king, Ed- 
ward addressed his order to " Hugo de Mors de conductu pro familurabus car- 
dinalis Petragoricensis et aliorum." From the nature of this commission and 
the prevalence of chivalry at the time, it is inferred that Hugo was a Knight. 
In Berry's Heraldry occurs the following coat of arms: — "Morse, ar. a battle- 
ax in pale, gu. (another ppr.) between three pellets — Crest two battleaxes in 

* Arras of Moss. Ermine on a cross formee sable, a bezant. Crest. Out of a mural 
coronet or a Griffin's bead ermine, charged on tbe neck with a bezant.

Saltier ppr. banded with a cliaplet of roses." This coat of arms, -with the ex- 
cellent motto, " In Deo non amis fido," I trust in God not in arms, Prof. Sam- 
uel F. B. Morse informs me, has been in the family in the south of England 
nearly 500 years ; going back quite to the date of the order of Edward. « All 
names," says Camden, "with de formerly written before them were borrowed 
from places." But it has not been ascertained that any place in England ever 
bore this horrible name, the Latin word for death. Where then was Mors ? 
and of what country was Hugo a native ? Both words point us to Fiance. 
where Hugo for ages has been a common and distinguished name, and where 
a dialect of the Latin had become the vernacular language of the people, and 
from which they would have borrowed names for their places. 

Besides, where would Edward have sought a man of qualifications, for the 
trust reposed in Hugo, to conduct a Cardinal with his retinue of English Bish- 
ops and nobles in a country just overrun by the King's troops, and full of en- 
mity towards his subjects? Not among Saxons lately manumitted : not anions 
the descendants of Norman barons, who, by a foreign residence of three cen- 
turies, had lost their acquaintance with the language and manners of France • 
but among continental subjects, who were familiar with the inhabitants and the 
dangers of the country to be traversed, and over which Edward was assertino- 
a disputed right to reign. If Hugo, then, was a Frenchman, who served the hated 
king of England, this hatred might have expatriated his family, as France re- 
covered her independence : and if we admit that they settled in England, he 
might have been the progenitor of all in that country and America who leaiti- 
mately spell their name Morse or Mores ; for such have retained essentially 
the same coat of arms for about 3 70 years, the former adding e, and the latter 
*, probably to obscure the original and horrid sense of the word* That Mora 
was the original and true spelling of the name, was not improbably the opin- 
ion of the faculty of Harvard College, for on the triennial Catalogue, the e 
final was omitted in the names of John and Joseph Morse, the first two alumni 
of the name, though it is certain that they always retained it. Thus was it aho 
spelt by Judge Sewall ; and both Webster and Worcester class Mors with 
Latin proper names. The importance of Hugo's commission, the existence 
of a coat of arms syncronizing with its date, indicate a rank to which pertain- 
ed hereditable possessions. Yet in Burke's History of the Extinct Peerages 
and of the Peerage and Baronetage of England, the name of Mors is not to be 
found. His territorial possessions, then, were situated in some other country 
and in what country so probably as in France, the birth place of the noble fam- 
ilies of England, and where for 300 years she had retained allies and more or 
less dominion. 

But if neither Peers nor Barons of this name have flourished in England 
numbers of them have enjoyed landed estates and high official stations. John 
Morse, Esq., is mentioned in early times as Alderman of Herford, and as hav- 
ing married Elizabeth, daughter of Herford, Esq., of Sufton, and whose 

mother was the daughter of William and Elizabeth Booth of Sallop and grand 

* This they seem to have accompli-hed with as much taste as a respectable family on 
Charles River, who, disgusted with the translation, and fearing for the moral eflect of 
making: their neighbours as familiar with death as the sight of themselves in the .streets 
and lightly esteeming their paternal inheritance, resolved to break the entailment and 
chan-red Death into Dearth, as if preferring a most horrid cause of dealh to death itself,

daughter of Richard B. and Margaret Pershall of Horsely. Robert Morse of 
Shirston, as having married Frances, the daughter of Sir Philip Redingfield, 
grandson to Solicitor General R. in the reign of Elizabeth, and the grand- 
daughter of Sir Henry Payton : also Mary Morse as daughter and coheir of 
Morgan M. and as having married Oliver Cromwell, great-grandson of the 
Protector, and inheritor of the estate at Theobalds, and as the mother of Olivia 
C. now Mrs. Russell, on whom lately devolved the representation of the Pro- 
tectorate family in England ; and other Morses of eminence in different parts 
of the kingdom whose communications may throw further light on the history 
of the name. Those inheriting it, though numerous, would seem to be less so 
in Europe than the Mosses. Its range is more restricted, being hitherto chiefly, 
if not exclusively, confined to families of English extraction. 

After all, this is not the country in which to make the investigation ; and 
we may perhaps despair of information more definite or certain, until a thor- 
ough search can be had in Europe. But whether it would not better com- 
port with the dignity of Americans to add to the future honor of the name, 
rather than exhume those won and buried in the dark ages upon another con- 
tinent, is respe"tfully submitted. 

In offering to the Morses and others the following collection, the author begs 
leave to state, that originally excited by no higher motive than a youthful curi- 
osity 1o know the history of his own ancestry, he at length discovered re 
of a moral and scientific nature for extending his researches to embrace all 
races of the name in this country. Of the magnitude of the undertaking he 
had no conception. But descended from the Puritan Samuel on both Bit 
reared in sight of the geographical centre of his race, aided by the reminiscen- 
ces of grandparents, born in 172!) and 1730, and of others whose memories 
had received traditions from the lips of the '2nd generation born in Xew Eng- 
land, he about thirty years ago commenced the Memorial now given to the 
press. To bring it to the state in which it appears, he has inspected ancient 
family papers, consulted the records of churches, parishes, towns, counties, cit- 
ies and colonies, wherever he could ascertain that any of the name settled prior 
to 1750; transcribing names and arranging them in the connexions indicated 
by the records themselves, the testimony of living witnesses, or the identity of 
Christian names as connected with ages. The utmost particularity and accu- 
racy have been aimed at as essential to the success of the future genealogist, and 
to guard against the confusion to which the repetition of the same, given names 
would lead ; to enable the student to calculate the range of mortality in differ- 
ent generations living in the same climate, or in the same generation residing 
in different climates and on different geological formations ; to estimate the 
probable expectancy of life at any age in any given family of uniformly good 
habits, ami the maximum of longevity attainable by any member of such fami- 
ly ; calculations of practical importance in the disposition of business and prop- 
erty and in assuming bonds of maintenance : and also to assist all in finding 
their kindred, that such as fear (iod and wish the highest good of the race, 
may not commit a sin in marriage, to be visited in some form or other upon the 
third and fourth generation. 

But he will not prolong these prefatory remarks to point out the various 
uses of the Memorial. On the bare record of names is reliance mainly had to

insure by association, traditions of their histories ; that the listener may be en- 
couraged to stand up for God and human rights, do his duty to himself, his fam- 
ily, neighbour and country ; and leave some happier trace of his existence here 
than a pile of riches ; that he may also be warned against vices, especially av- 
arice, " the basest passion of the basest souls,'' -which extinguishes every noble 
sentiment, every element of humanity, and makes its slave a scandal to his 
race : And above all other things, that he may in this way be warned against 
turning his back upon the stated and faithful preaching of the Gospel ; for here 
he may learn that the families who cling to religion are safe, but that when they 
let go, they fall temporally and eternally. 

In collecting materials for this work the subscriber most gratefully acknowl- 
edges the generous agency of correspondents too numerous to be named. To 
Samuel A. Morse, Esq., of Cheshire, Conn.; Abijah H. Moss, Esq., of Lock- 
port, N. Y. ; Mr. Civilian Morse, of Bennington, Shiawassee Co., Mich., and 
Chauncy Morse, Esq., of Plainville, Conn., are the descendants of John 1 Moss 
chiefly indebted for the collection of his race. To the former gentleman is he 
under obligation for the materials relating to the history of this distinguished 
Puritan ; and to each of the gentlemen for encouraging lists of subscribers. 

Dea. Jesse Morse, of Dublin, N. H., Doct. Charles Morse, of Providence, 
Joshua Coffin, Esq., of Newbury, Hon. Freeman H. Morse, Esq., of Bath, Me., 
Albert Augustus Morse, Esq., of Abberville, S. C, and Mr. Chauncy Morse, 
of Canterbury, Conn., have rendered much assistance. 

The work is not complete. Names are omitted, either because never re- 
corded or not reported : and notwithstanding great care in copying, the author 
dares not pronounce it void of all errors. Who could be expected to record 
20,000 births, marriages and deaths (and here is that number), without a mis- 
take ; especially where family and monumental records are at variance with 
those of the town and church, and the chirography often enigmatical or nearly 
illegible ? Still he has confidence in its correctness prior to 1 750 ; and believes 
the inaccuracies, if any exist, attach to the modern generations, which living- 
witnesses are requested to note and communicate to him, that errata may be 
supplied on a leaf to be pasted into each copy of this edition at the end of one 
year after its publication. 

The notes, hastily written as materials were found, with a view to being trans- 
cribed and improved, are sent to press in their original form, for want of time to 
improve them. 

The Memorial, with all its imperfections, is now humbly submitted to the can- 
dor and indulgence of those for whose benefit it has been prepared. Should it 
meet the expectations of those who have regarded the undertaking with so 
much favor as to give their patronage to a stranger unknown in the world 
of letters, he will be secure in the conviction that he has wronged no man. 
Should it lead any to calculate the shortening of life and read other signs of 
physical degeneracy, then the causes may be sought out and shunned, and the 
race brought back to their primitive strength, stature and longevity. Should 
it draw some to communion with their strong minded, discerning and patriotic 
sires, it may perchance disclose and correct false estimates in themselves. 
Should it awaken others to see the superior happiness of their fathers in cir- 
cumstances so inferior to their own, they may discover that it is a real misfor- 
tune to become rich. Should they inquire into the origin of such happiness, 



Vlll PREFACE. 

they may perceive that it was not drawn from any of the objects in which they 
are hoping to find it ; that to them such objects were as vain and unsatisfying 
as they have hitherto been to the living : and that they unitedly testified to the 
ove of God and faith in his Son as the only source of happiness in this world 
and the only preparative for it in that into which they have entered. Should 
it provoke others to imitate their exalted virtues and noble deeds, tradition will 
follow their names also with encomiums, urging their posterity to " go and do 
likewise ; " and thus may God be further glorified here by worth that has passed 
away. * 

But should it find others inclined to care nothing for departed worth, may 
they ponder the declaration of Burke, that " he only deserves to be remembered 
by posterity who treasures up and preserves the history of his ancestors." 

Should others indolently or scornfully reject proposals to fill iip chasms of 
two or three generations, and thereby connect themselves with a gotllv ances- 
try, here placed within their reach ; such negligence is a surer criterion than 
either bumps or pedigree, of traits and habits of which few would endure a 
suspicion. Besides, it is unkindness to their posterity ; for it debars them 
from the moral and scientific uses of family history, and from the noble satisfac- 
tion of reading their legitimate descent from a Puritan stock. 

Should others go further, and disdain all communion with these departed 
sires, depend upon it, that children who can see nothing but deformity in such 
parents are themselves deformed ; and if they will exclude them because they 
had the faults of their age, and their enemies have accused them of no other, 
then let them apply their close communion to themselves, and direct that in 
the light of a superior age, posterity shall try them by improved standards ; and 
ere their monuments crumble, their own children may stand up with the 
pious horror of their fathers, cast out their names as evil, and hold up their 
memories to obloquy. 

Should others alas ! forfeit the rich inheritance of a good name ; vain to con- 
ceal will be the glare of wealth, the power of station, the office of friendship, 
and the pen of eulogy. Argus-eyed genealogy will find it out, and trumpet- 
tongued tradition swear that they shall be remembered only in their true char- 
acter : and the higher their rank, the louder and longer will be her blasts. 

Should any persist in evil courses, contemning the memory of sainted ances- 
tors, despising perishable records to be seen only by the few, be it known to 
them that there is another record, as imperishable as the memory of God, to be 
read in the audience of the universe. 

Would others live without desires and efforts to leave the world better th.:n 
they found it, genealogy will record them gone to the bar of that Judge who 
once in human form went about doing good, and gave his life that all men might 
have it abundantly. 

Finally, would any glory in their descent from a knight dubbed by royal 
hands a thousand years ago, here are our modern Sires, who received the fa- 
vors of angels and the accolade of Jehovah ; men, exalted as far above Norman 
Barons as were they above their own villains ; and through whom we have re- 
ceived our richest inheritance here, and the hope of a better one hereafter.

1. Names occurring as parents stand the nearest to the left-hand margin. The hus- 
band's name is followed by his wife's, and her name by the date of her birth, mar- 
riage, and death, when ascertained, and these with the names of their last reported 
residences. 

2. The names of their children stand immediately below, and are numbered I, 2, 3, 
&c, in the order of their births. 

3. The first figure to the left of the father's name is his number in the list of his father's 
children ; and the second number to the left of that, and the first in the margin, 
refers to the page from which his name has been drawn, and on which he occurs as 
a child, with dates of birth, death, &c. 

4. The second figure to the left of a child's name refers to the page where he is re- 
ported as a parent. 

5. id, standing in the place of the second number before a parent's name, refers to the 
same page above, where he occurs as a child. When id stands before a child's 
name, it refers to the same page below, where he occurs as a parent. 

6. The minute figures immediately after names denote the number of their generation, 
each Puritan sire being No. 1, Thus, Samuel. 1

The practice of double dating between Jan. 1 and March 25, thus, 1675' — 6, until 
the introduction of N. S. in 1752, is retained to prevent confusion and enable families 
to compare and correct their dates. 

N. B. Prior to 1752, the civil year began in March, which was called the 1st month, 
April 2d month, often expressed thus, 25, (2,) i. e. 25 day 2d month. 

To render 0. S. into N. S. the 1st month must be accounted the 3d, and ten days be 
added to all dates between 1582 and 1700, and eleven days to dates between 1700 and 
1752. For the single year 1600 eleven days should be added.

John 2 m. prior to 1635 Annis pr. Chickering, took the Freeman's oath May 13, 
1640 ; made his will '55 before embarking for England. In this he speaks 
of taking with him most of an estate with which he had been favored. He re- 
turned in the Speedwell, Kob't Lock, master, May 30, '56, and died soon 
after without altering his will. The appraisal of his estate in 1657 at only 
£385, suggests the probability of his having left in Eng. a much larger 
amount, to which traditions of claims in Eng. may refer. 

Rev. Joseph Morse 4 m. Amity Harris, of Providence, R. I., where he taught 
school previous to residing in Watertown, now Waltham. 

Rev. John Morse 4 according to a record lately found, was b. 1674, which makes 
him to have grad. at Har. Col., aged 18. On Commencement day, July 
3, 1695, he gave a disquisition on "An Gentes ex Naturae Lumine Salu- 
tem possint consequi," maintaining the negative ; and took the Master's 
Degree. His cane, with the date of his death upon it, bequeathed to his 
br. Seth, is in the possession of Martin Morse, 7 Esq., of New York. 

Seth 4 Dea. " d. 1783, aged 97," m. Hannah Falconer, Aug. 7, 1710; 2d, 
Elizabeth Baron, r. Ancient Stone House, Guilford, Ct. He lost his ex- 
cellent mother* when a child, and was brought up at G. by her godly friend, 
Mrs. Dudley, in fulfilment of a vow, mutually and early made, that if either 
of them should die, leaving a young child, the other should take and bring 
it up as her own. Verily, there were good women in those days, and 
among their latest descendants may this be told for a memorial of them. 
He had 

1. John 5 ra. Hannah Pierce; 2. Ezra 5 (idiotic), d. 1784; 3. Hannah 5 m. Noah 
Hodgkin, and had Beriah, 6 Rev., of Greenville, N. Y. ; 4. Ruth 5 m. 
Saml. Lee, Esq., and has descendants of hi<*h respectability ; 5. Lois m. 
Jona. Munger, of Woodbury, Ct. ; 6. Lucy 5 m. Beriah Bishop; 7. Sarah 5 
m. Tim. Baldwin. 

John 5 w. Hannah Pierce, r. Leets Isd. Dis., Guilford, was distinguished for 
piety and eccentricity. He built his house with a fire-place in the front 
entry, where he shut himself up to fast forty days. On the third or fourth 
day he claimed that the Lord had excused him. His grave, a few rods S. 
of the site of his house, is marked by stones chiseled by himself. Refusing 
to be buried after the fashion of the world, he, by his own direction, was 
laid with his head to the North. He had 1. Elizth, 6 d. um. ; 2. Hannah 6 
m. Chs. Faulkner ; 3. Ruth 6 m. Absalom Miner, r. Brookfield, N. Y., had 
Ruth, 7 1770, m. Richd. Goldsmith, and r. at Hamilton, N Y. ; 4. Beu- 
lah 6 m. Geo. Kimberly, r. G., has a grd. s., Jno. F. A". 8 m. dg. of Rev. 
Alvah B. Goldsmith, of G. ; 5. Lois, 6 1748, drowned Jan. 10, 1761 ; 6. 
John 6 rm. to Wes. N. Y. ; 7. David 6 m. Lucy Norton, r. Greenville, N. 
Y., had 1. Simeon 7 r. Orangeville, Wyora. Co., N. Y., who had James? 
Harvey? Price? David? Wealthy? Hannah? Louisa? ; 2. Martin 7 m. 
Beulah Kimberly, r. New York ; 3. Beulah 7 ; 4. Asher 7 who ra. Anna 
Reynolds, r. S. Westerlo, N. Y, bad Delia? m. Wm. M. Shepard, of 
Oberlin, O., Geo. 9 r. Reynolds Basin, N. Y., Chs. 8 m. Rachel Banta, r. 

* The influence of this woman, though removed so early from her children, con- 
tinues extensively to this day. She died 164 years ago, saon after the birth of Seth.

3 Joseph 2 pr, a millwright d. ag'd 39, leaving an 8th child not recorded ; and, for 
his time, a handsome estate. In Note No. IV., his cousin, Joseph 2 of 
Watertown, was mistaken for him. He, not having been a member of the 
Chh., was debarred from the freeman's oath and the rights of complete 
citizenship. 

John 5 Capt., d. at Brighton, N. Y., " with his first sickness," 1825, aged 90. 
He was distinguished for mirthfulness and music, strength of body and 
memory, courage and perseverance. He settled in Pittsfield, 4 miles east 
of the centre. To his taste we owe the preservation of the magnificent elm 
in that place, which for its beauty he spared in girdling its original neigh- 
bors. He became a member of the church, served as selectman and treas- 
urer of the town, and as deputy sheriff of Berkshire Co. ; also through the 
whole of the French war, during which he was engaged in 11 skirmishes 
and battles, and was twice severely wounded. He was a famous leader of 
scouts ; engaged in the revolutionary service at West Point, but having, 
through the perfidy and irresponsibility of another, been stripped of his 
property, he was discharged to provide for his suffering family. His son 
Ezekiel inherits his musket. [whose children are to be traced.

Alpheus Esq., was reared in the society of men connected with the Government, 
and surrounded, at the revolt of the Colonies, by influences to insure his 
loyalty. He was naturally of a mirthful, kind, and generous spirit. As 
the representative of his deceased father, who had been extensively known 
and respected in the colonies,* his acquaintance was sought by fugitive loy- 
alists, many of whom remembered to the day of their death, his hospitality 
and kindness. Having learned to speak the languages of the French and 
Indians, he exerted much influence over them, and had the happiness of 
being advantageously known and extensively beloved. He died 1818, 
sustained in his last hours by hopes of a permanent reward. He m. Theody

eminent services in the cause of Her Majesty, but of late has favored the pop- 
ular cause, and been prominent in urging its claims. " By travellers who have 
made his acquaintance and shared in his hospitalities, he is represented as a 
gent, of liberal information, an able Barrister and debater, and "eminently 
kind to all Americans." He is such an admirer of free institutions and so val- 
ient for the rights and true interests of the people that he would make a good 
republican, and a reformer of our reformers ; and joyfully would the race with 
which he stands incorporated, welcome him and his lady from the arctic climate 
of the Bay of Chaleur, to the more sunny land of her fathers, where he mi^ht 
^ find a wider field and freer scope for his talents and philanthropy

the family of the Hon. Amos Botsford, one of the most eminent men of his 
day in the Province of N. B., the first Speaker of her Legislature, of which 
he continued a member and master spirit until his death ; when he was suc- 
ceeded in both offices by his son, Hon. Wm. B, A. M., Yale Col., lately 
one of the Supreme Judges of that Province. Hon. Amos was a gent of 
various attainments. Previous to his removal, ab. 1783, from Ct to West- 
mo Co., N. B., he had been an officer in Yale Col. To such an instructor 
and patron as well as to his own genius and social relations, was Mr. Morse 
indebted for his early distinctions. Having commenced his professional 
career in his own native Province, he was soon placed in public stations 
He was by popular suffrage 19 years a member of the Legislative Assembly 
of JN. b and by Executive patronage 6 years a member of her Legislative 
Council. In such estimation were his services held, that the tender of his 
resignation May 26, 1843, was not accepted ; and when renewed in 1844 
Lord Falkland, the Gov., at length returned the following complimentary 

"I have to acknowledge the receipt of your communication dated Jan 
last tendering your resignation of the office of Legislative Councillor and 
signify its acceptance. I cannot but express to you my sincere regret at 
your not having it in your power to attend the session of the Legislative 
Council. I have the Honor to be, Dear Sir, your most obedient "humble

Jona. d. Jan. 12, 1835. His w. Azubah d. Jan. 16, 1837, aged 7G. He 
succeeded his father, as justice of the peace, June 20, 1801, and served 
until 1820 ; was captain of militia and selectman, 1780-99 ; town-clerk, 
1810-14 ; and d. Jan. 12, 1835. His father before him sustained the 
office of Justice twenty-seven years, during which time he issued 923 writs, 
rendered 783 judgments, married sixty-five couples, wrote 39 wills, ad- 
ministered on many estates, was guardian to many minors, arbitrator in many 
difficult causes, collector of state taxes, notary public, selectman 18 years, 
town-clerk and treasurer 20 years, and representative in 31 legislative as- 
semblies. In 1749, when Woodstock was transferred from Massachusetts 
to Connecticut, he, with 73 others, took the freeman's oath. He had a 
great passion for statistics, acted as a farrier and veterinary surgeon, and 
had the strength of a Hercules. He was an exception in Anthony's 1 race, 
who have been generally tall, but not stout, and have afforded more instances 
of consumption than the other six races collectively.

Newbury 6 Capt. d. Mar., 1824, at Port Antonio, Jaimaca, W. I., r. Portland, 
" for many years a respectable ship-master. His life was marked with un- 
usual vicissitudes. In his seventeenth year he sailed from New Bedford ; 
and after several voyages, was impressed in London, and remained twenty- 
six months on board a British man-of-war. He then made his escape, and 
returned home, after an absence of five years. He sailed as mate of a ves- 
sel, and afterwards as master, for several years. Once he was taken from 
a wreck at sea, after ten days of suffering, and carried to London ; once 
he was cast away on the coast of Surinam, and travelled through a wilder 
derness 80 miles, till he arrived at a place where he obtained a passage 
home. In one instance, on a passage from the W. Indies to Portland, his 
vessel was taken by a British ship, and all his men taken out. The captors 
put eight men on board, and ordered her to Halifax. Capt. M. contrived 
to secure five of them, and regained possession of his vessel, one of the three 
on deck having taken his part, and rendered assistance. In three days he 
arrived safe in Portland, with vessel and cargo, and seven prisoners. After 
this, he was cast away off Cohasset, and his vessel sunk. The masts reach- 
ing above water, he remained on them eighteen hours, and was taken off. 
He then removed to Fairfield, Me., where he resided about five years. 
Till this period he had lived without God in the world ; but here the wan- 
derer was brought home, as we have reason to believe, to the fold of 
Christ, in 1820. In 1822, he again went to sea, and once returned to his

Samuel Morse belonged to that class of Puritans who strove 
to separate from the corruptions of the English church, yet con- 
tinued in her communion until their embarkation for this coun- 
try. His emigration evidently originated in the same circum- 
stances, and was undoubtedly dictated by the same well known 
motives as that of the earlier emigrants to New England. 

Wm. Laud, the enemy of the Puritans, being elevated to the 
Primacy of England in 1633, a Commission was illegally in- 
stituted soon after, consisting of a Committee of the Privy 
Council, called the Commissioners of Plantations, who, to em- 
barrass the Puritans, prohibited the promiscuous passing of his 
Majesty's subjects to this country, requiring subsidy men to pro- 
cure a license and. other persons the attestation of two justices 
before they could embark. Accordingly our Puritan Sire, Sam- 
uel Morse, however he might have approbated a different 
course in his sons, who were of age, took care, when about to 
remove, to conform to existing laws, as appears from the follow- 
ing extract from a MS. at the Augmentation Office in Rolls 
Court, Westminster Hall, London, transcribed by Judge Savage. 

" lo Apr. 1635 Theis parties hereafter expressed are to be trans- 
ported to New England, imbarqued in the Increase, Robert Lea, 
Master, having taken the oath of allegiance and supremacy as 
being conformable to the orders and dicipline of the Church of 
England, whereof they brought testimony per certificate from the 
Justices and Ministers where there abodes have lately been. Sam- 
uel Morse, husbandman aged 50 Elizabeth Morse (wife) aged 48 
Joseph Morse aged 20." 

One hundred and twelve others are recorded as embarking in 
the Increase between the 12th and 18th of April. Whether the 
rest of his family embarked clandestinely after the clearance of 
the ship, as was then the common and only way by which the 
more distinguished Puritans could escape, or took passage in some 
other vessel, is not ascertained. On arriving in this country he first 
settled at Watertown, then the metropolis of the colony. Here 
he and his family became conformable to the orders and disci- 
pline and doctrines too of the Puritan Church, to enjoy which 
was doubtless their motive in emigrating ; and in view of which 
they were enabled to put forth the mighty moral effort requisite

lo the undertaking. Who in all the catalogue of his descend- 
ants lias ever proved himself capable of the like, or laid the 
foundation of so much good? But for the virtues he possessed, 
the voice he heeded, the choice he made and the efforts he put 
forth, what might not have been the condition of his descend- 
ants, if indeed any had been perpetuated ? To God be the 
praise. Yet to us it may be profitable lo reflect upon the instru- 
ments of our happy condition and the obligations we owe our 
puritan ancestors. 

About the time he arrived, the General Court sitting at New- 
lowne granted a tract of land south of Charles River to 12 men, 
who took Samuel Morse and his sons into their company, and 
preparatory to settling upon it held their first recorded meeting 
on the 15th of Aug., 1636, as is supposed, at "Watertown, and 
there adopted and signed the following covenant. 

" 1. We whose names are hereunto subscribed, do in the fear 
and reverence of our Almighty God, mutually and severally prom- 
ise amongst ourselves and each to other, to profess and practice 
one faith according to that most. Gospel rule the foundation whereof 
is everlasting love. 

"2. That we shall by all means labour to keep off from us all 
such as be contrary minded, and receive only such unto us as be such 
as may be probably of one heart with us as that we either know or may 
well and truly be informed to walk in a peacable conversation with 
all meekness of spirit for the edification of each other in the knowl- 
edge and spirit of the Lord Jesus, and the mutual encouragement 
unto all temporal comforts in all things seeking the good of each 
other out of all which may be derived true peace. 

" 3. That if at any time difference shall arise between parties 
of our said Town, that then such party or parties shall presently 
refer all such difference unto from one, two, or three other of our 
said society, to be fully accorded and determined without any fur- 
ther delay if it possibly may be. 

"4. That every man that now or at any time hereafter shall 
have lots in our said Town, shall pay his share in all such rates of 
money and charges as shall be imposed upon him rateably in pro- 
portion to other men : as also become freely subject unto all such 
orders and constitutions as shall be necessarily had or made now or 
at any time hereafter from this day forward as well for loving and 
comfortable society in our said Town as also for the prosperous and 
thriving condition of our said fellowship; especially respecting the 
fear of God in which we desire to begin and continue whatsoever 
we shall by his loving favour take in hand. 

" 5. And for the better manifestation of our true resolution 
herein every man so received to subscribe hereunto his name, 
thereby obliging both himself and his successors after him forever 
as we have done.

Church at Providence and baptized Roger Williams, Edward 
Evered, the ancestor of the President of Harvard College, Col. 
John Dwight the progenitor of the late President of Yale Col- 
lege, and others whose descendants have been distinguished. 
This constitution has no date, but it must have been executed 
prior to Sept. 6, 1636, for the original grantees, with such as 
had become associated with them, state in a petition for a fur- 
ther act of incorporation subscribed at that time, that they were 
already under covenant. They named iheir Town " Content- 
ment." But the " Great and General Court," in complying 
with their request on the 10th of Sept. 1636, named it Dedham. 
By this act they first became fully organized. Dedham then 
included, beside its present territory, Medfield, Walpole, Wren- 
tham, Franklin, Bellingham, Needham, Dover, Natick, and the 
S. E. part of Sherborn. Every part of this territory was pur- 
chased of the Indians before it was assigned to settlers. Kin^ 
Phillip had executed two deeds conveying all his right to every 
part of it, long before he burnt Wrentham and Medfield. In the 
first enterprise in settling Dedham, Samuel Morse seems to have 
been the leader ; for no sooner had they become incorporated 
than they, after expressing their gratitude to God for inclining 
the General Court to grant their petition, chose him collector of 
money to be given and to pay out according to such several 
occasions as should arise concerning 1 their Town. This was 
the fullest expression of confidence in his honesty and capacity 
in their gift. This seems to have been done at Watertown, in 
Sept. 1636. Immediately after, a few of the Proprietors com- 
menced operations at Dedham, but it was not until the March 
following that the settlers with their families passed up Charles 
river in boats, and held the first assembly in Dedham. Daniel 
and Joseph Morse attended the first meeting in Aug. 1636, and 
had lots assigned them. Their brother John was admitted and 
had land assigned him in 1637, and before the close of this year 
D. contained " 30 Families who had lately come from different 
parts of England." A Law of the Colony required them to 
locate their dwellings within half a mile of the site appropriated 
for a meeting house. Accordingly each man had a home lot of 
8 or 12 acres, as he was single or married, and a share in a large 
inclosure which was cultivated in common. Lots of meadow 
or wet Prairie were early assigned, for making hay, and their 
other lands were held in common and used as pasturage. Some 
had the right of pasturing more cattle than others, which was de- 
termined by various circumstances, as were the grants of land 
afterward made : 

" Such as the number of members in a family ; ability to improve 
the land ; or exercise a useful trade ; usefulness in the Church and 
Commonwealth ; rank, &c. Tracts were set apart for the support 
of the Gospel and Education. Their first Meeting house, 36 feet long 
and 20 wide, and 12 feet high, was framed and inclosed and cov-

ered with thatch, in 1638-9; 'completely finished' 1646; lathed 
upon the studs, daubed and whitened over in a workmanlike man- 
ner, 1657." 

Their School House, 14 by 18, two stories high, with a watch 
tower upon it, was of the same materials. Their houses were 
correspondingly rude and humble. Yet the proportion of edu- 
cated men in that humble hamlet was ten times greater than in 
any of our present villages or Towns, and " most of the settlers 
were undoubtedly men of character and standing in their own 
country." In 1638 a church was organized upon strictly Con- 
gregational Principles, and the following covenant adopted Nov. 
8, 1638 : 

" We, whose names are subscribed, having found by woful ex- 
perience, the unsteadfastness of our hearts with God, and proneness 
to go astray from his ways, for which we desire to abase and hum- 
ble ourselves in his presence, and desiring to be joined forever 
to the Lord, and to cleave together in spiritual love and communion, 
according to his holy institutions, that we might enjoy in his name 
such holy helps as the Lord Jesus in wisdom and compassion hath 
ordained in his gospel for his people, thereby to let out himself unto 
them, and to build them up in faith and holiness, till he hath pre- 
pared them for everlasting communion with himself: 

" We do therefore, in the name and presence of God, and of our 
Lord Jesus Christ, and before his people here assembled, solemnly 
enter into covenant with the Lord our God, professing and acknowl- 
edging the Lord Jesus, our blessed Redeemer, to be the only priest, 
prophet, and king of his church, and (through the help of his 
grace) his only merit we rest upon for our pardon and peace with 
the Father ; his only teaching and righteous government with all 
the blessed ordinances of his kingdom ; we do embrace and submit 
unto in all things as the only rule of our lives, renouncing all our 
own righteousness, with all the doctrines, devices and command- 
ments of men, not agreeing with his holy word ; especially all the 
superstitious and tyrannous commands of Antichrist, and his adhe- 
rents, wherein we have in any kind been entangled ; professing and 
promising, through the help of his rich and free grace, henceforth 
not to live unto ourselves, but unto the Lord Jesus, who hath bought 
us with his blood, avoiding carefully all such things as be offensive 
to his majesty, and dishonourable to our profession of his name, 
with all such dangerous temptations as our sinful hearts are wont 
to be drawn aside withal, in special, the inordinate cares of, and 
entanglements in, the affairs of this life : Promising and professing 
also, through the help of the Lord, to live together in this our holy 
fellowship, according to the rule of love, in all holy watchfulness 
over each other, and faithful mutual helpfulness in the ways of 
God, for the spiritual and temporal comfort and good of one another 
in the Lord ; and all to the setting forth of the praise of his rich 
grace in Christ, who hath called us in his abundant mercy to this 
holy fellowship with his Majesty and one with another." 

The Rev. John Allin, who is believed to have been a mem- 
ber of the Westminster Assembly, was chosen to be their Pas- 



APPENDIX. 

tor. Samuel Morse and other members of the Church at 
Watertown had previously applied for letters, " that so the foun- 
dation of a Christian society might be laid in Dedham ;" but they 
were denied, on the ground of an unwillingness ' ; to dismiss 
any but into a settled Church." This objection being obviated, 
they « were received [30 (5) 1641 ;] Mr. Phillips their Pastor, 
and Mr. Carter and Mr. How, elders, testifying in their favour." 
John Morse was received in 1640, "giving good testimony unto 
the Church, of the gracious workings of the ordinances upon 
his heart to the obedience of faith." " Lydia, wife of Brother 
Daniel M. was received 29 (11) 1639, giving a clear testimony 
of the gracious work of God in his effectual calling." Hannah, 
"the wife of Joseph, was comfortably received 19 (9) 1639." 
Daniel was received from Watertown 30 (2) 1643. His sister 
Mary was admitted 7 (4) 1646. 

"The first settlers of Dedham were a remarkable collection of 
people. Tradition brings down a high character attached to most 
of the names found on its early records ; and their public and pri- 
vate acts fully confirm it. Orderly and industrious in their habits, 
they allowed no one to remain in their community who was not 
engaged in some regular occupation. Any violation of rales was 
followed by a penalty ; yet the most exact strictness was accompa- 
nied by equally unfailing loving kindness. Liberal were they to- 
wards each other and their neighbours and public spirited. Thrifty 
were they, husbanding both public and private resources with great 
economy and industry. Above all, they pursued a liberal and en- 
lightened policy in matters of religion. The Church severe within 
itself, would spend a whole winter in inquiring into the qualifica- 
tions of applicants for admission; rejecting upon the slightest 
doubt, and trying gifts and graces by all the subtle tests made use 
of at that age ; yet they molested no one who was not a member 
for his private opinions. In such a sound and sensible community 
we find, as might be expected, no persecutions, no witches, no su- 
pernatural occurrences." " The Church appears not to have been 
disturbed by discontented or factious spirits. Indeed the turbulent 
passions found no aliment here. The plantation went on regularly 
advancing in population and wealth. The fruits of religion were 
exhibited in the life, but without ostentation and uncharitableness." 

In such a community did the Patriarch Samuel Morse see his 
exiled sons settled, living in all good fellowship with God's pe- 
culiar people, rearing numerous families in the knowledge of 
that faith for the sake of which he had led them forth into the 
wilderness. In the civil transactions of Dedham he and his 
sons bore an honorable part. Besides serving as Treasurer he 
was townsman (selectman) 1640-42^ and his elder sons were 
advanced to office. But they were too enterprising, and ambi-

tious to set up God's ordinances, to rest here. They therefore 
united with other citizens and proprietors of Dedham in petition- 
ing for a new town ; and the General Court in " 1649 granted. 
Dedham so much land meadow and upland on the western 
bounds of them beyond the River, (Medway), so as that they 
erect a village here within one year from the 22 of 8 mo. and 
this without annexing the usual condition of such grants, that 
they should within a specified time also erect a meeting house 
and settle a minister ; knowing from the high religious character 
of the petitioners, these would be done within the shortest time 
possible." Accordingly Dedham 1 (11) 1C49, O. S., but Jan. 12, 

1650, N. S., chose a committee to lay out a road to " the Vil- 
lage'' before the middle of April, and Meadfield arose at once 
with her meeting house, church and minister. In this town 
home lots were assigned to Samuel Morse and his sons Daniel 
and Joseph, and son-in-law Deacon Samuel Bullen. Here he 
settled, it is believed, with his younger son Joseph, and erected 
the house which was first fired by the Indians, when they, led 
by King Phillip, laid that town in ashes, Feb. 21, 1675, O. S., 
killing 18 of the inhabitants. This house stood about three 
quarters of a mile E. S. E. of Medfield meeting house, 30 rods 
south of the road leading to Dedham, on an eminence overlook- 
ing on the E. a depressed area which comes to the road, and 
which must have been originally a dark swamp. The land is 
now owned by Eliakim Morse, of the 8th generation descended 
from him, and has never passed out of the name. To the praise 
of this branch of our Family, the trace of the site of this house 
no profane hand has been suffered to obliterate. 

No ancient records of the Church in Medfield exists. Still 
we are authorized from their standing and the usages of those 
times to believe that the Patriarch and his family contributed 
largely to its numbers when it was gathered in the year 1650 or 

1651. Here he lived to behold another pious and prosperous 
community spring up, the first born of Dedham and resembling 
the parent. And now advanced in years and summoned to set 
his house in order, we find him attended by that excellent man, 
Rev. Ralph Wheelock, "who had been an eminent non-con- 
formist preacher in England," one of the witnesses of the fol- 
lowing Will. 

Medfield, Anno Domini 10 mo. 2d, 1G54. 

•• I. Samuel Morse, being sick and weak in body but of good and 
perfect memory, praised be God therefor, doe make this my last will 
and testament in a manner as folowith: First I bequeath my soul 
into the hand of a mercyful God that gave it, with assured hope of 
everlasting life through the gracious merits of my dear Saviour and 
blessed Redeemer, Jesus Christ. 

As for that little estate of outward things which the Lord hath 
been pleased to bestow upon me whether they be moveable or im- 
moveable, as house, lands, chattle, households stuff, &c, I will and 
bequeath them all unto Elizabeth Morse, my dear and loveing wife 



APPENDIX. 

to enjoy, possess and make use of her life during the terra thereof, 
and after her decease out of life, my will is that all that estate 
which she was in life possesser of shall be divided amongst my 
children, both sonnes and daughters, that is to say, John Morse, 
Daniel Morse, Mary Bullin and Ann* 1 Morse, the widow of my 
dearly beloved sonne Joseph deceased, who with my said children 
shall have an equal portion upon a just division with them for the 
children's sake of my beloved Joseph. Therefore, my will is that 
the above named Ann, the wife of my dear Joseph shall make an 
equal distribution of all that portion upon division unto every child 
of my sonne Joseph, when they and every one of them shall grow 
up to the age of one and twenty years. 

Lastly, I constitute and appoint Elizabeth, my beloved wife, the 
sole executrix of this my last will. In witness whereunto, I have 
put my hand the day and year above written. 

In the presence of Henry Smith, Samuel Morse. 

Ralph Wheelock, 
Samuel Bullin. 

His estate was appraised 27d of 11m. 1654, at £124 07. He 
seems to have disposed of most of his property a few months 
previous. John had the homestead that he had left in Dedham, 
and from the means at the command of Daniel soon after, it 
seems probable that he had for those days a common amount 
of property. 

Granted unto sundry men by the 
Proprietors of Dedham, 18 day 6 mo. 1636. 

1. " Joseph Morse twelve acres more or lesse, (part of it being 
swampe as it lieth between Samuel Morse towards the North, and 
the rest of the said swampe towards the South, the one end abutting 
upon the said swampe towards the East, and the other end abutteth 
upon John Morse and Mr. Edward Allyn towards the West. The 
way leading from the Keye " (the landing on Charles River N. N. 
W. from the old Parish Church, or N. W. of the new stone Court 
House about 60 rods) "unto the pond " (Wigwam Pond) "running 
through that end of the lande." 

2. Samuel Morse, 12 acres more or less as it lieth between 
Daniel Morse towards the North and Joseph Morse towards the 
South, and abutting upon the little River towards the East, and the 
way leading from the Keye to the Pond towards the West. 

3. Daniel Morse 12 acres more or less as it lyeth between 
Philomon Dalton towards the North, and Samuel Morse towards 
the South, and abutteth upon the little meddowes towards the 
East, and the way leading from the Keye to the Pond towards the 
West. 

John Morse hath granted unto him and his assignes forever 
from Samuel Morse, being part of his gratification lott for an house 
seate, twoe acres more or lesse, as it lyeth betweene Richard 
Evered towards the North, and the swampe towards the South, 
and abutts upon Joseph Morse towards the East and the swampe

usually written Hannah and Hanna, and if pronounced without the aspi- 
rate, the mistake might easily have occurred.

towards the West. John had also granted to him by his Father 
Samuel, 12 acres more. 

The Father and two sons owened all the land from High Street 
to the Pond, except Rev. Mr. Daltons lot of 12 acres which seperat- 
ed them from it. John Morse hath more granted unto him and 
his assignes forever from Samuel Morse, being the residue of his 
gratification lott, 12 acres more or less, as it lyeth between Robert 
Hinsdell towards the North, and Richard Evered for the most part 
towards the South, and abutts upon the Waest towards the East 
and the swampe towards the West; the way 4 rods broad, running 
through the West end thereof." 

By the aid of this record his lot can be re-surveyed, and the 
trace of his house and well identified ; affording a retired and 
commanding prospect for a monument to his memory. Will it 
not benefit us and our posterity thus to honor him ? or shall we 
wait for a nobler generation ; one endowed with more reverence 
and gratitude.

John sold his place in Dedham 27 (9) 1654, soon after the 
death of his parents, removed to Boston, and became established 
as a Merchant Tailor; and the next year visited England, proba- 
bly to receive an inheritance for himself and brothers, as a change 
for the better in their circumstances immediately followed. He 
made his Will in 1655, giving his widow, Annas, d£40, and^the 
rest of his property inventoried after his death in 1657 at d£385,- 
09.05d, to be equally divided to his children (viz. the 8 young- 
est) " each to have a like proportion and not one to have more 
than another." In 1670 his Widow, who had now returned to 
Dedham, sells her house in Boston for £51. Her will, proved 
1693, gave her property to be equally divided to her surviving 
children, Ruth, Ezra, Abigail, Ephraim and Bethiah.

Daniel Morse 2 removed from Dedham to Meadfield 1651, and 
settled soon after in Bogestow, the aboriginal name of the valley 
of Charles River, between S. Natick and Medway Village. He 
purchased, about 1656, a Iract of 800 acres of choice land, which 
had been granted by the General Court to Simon Bradstreet, 
May 22, 1650, (afterwards Governor) and since called " the 
Farm," situated in the Eastern part of what is now Sherborn. He 
was guilty of no contempt of the law enacted 1635, that " no 
dwelling house shall be built above a half mile from the meet- 
ing-house in any new plantation, without leave from the Gen- 
eral Court, except mills and farm houses of such as have their 
dwelling in the Town," when he located half a mile N. W. of 
the Farm Bridge, on the site now owned and occupied by 
Leonard Morse, one of his descendants, and 4 miles from the 



APPENDIX. 

village of Medfield ; for that law had become obsolete. He 
commenced improvements here about 1657, and subsequently 
removed his family, probably in '57, the last year of his service 
as a selectman in Medfield.^ Here his thoughts were early 
turned to the erection of a new town and Church, as appears 
from the following Petition. 

" The humble Petition of several of the inhabitants of Bogis- 
tow, to be presented to the much honored General Court, 7 of 
3mo. 1662." 

" Whereas, the Providence of the most wise God who hath ap- 
pointed the bounds of all mens habitations, having in mercy we 
hope disposed of us and our families in that place commonly called 
Bogestow, upon lands which we' purchased of several gentlemen 
in this country, and having for some years although with great dif- 
ficulty attended upon the means of grace at Medfield ; first, in re- 
spect of the distance ; and secondly, by reason of the great danger 
that many times we goe in, in going over Charles River, which is 
caused by great floods and much ice, although as yet no great hurt 
done, for which we have great cause to bless God ; yet considering 
that it may be more for the honor of God and the future good and 
benefit of ourselves and posterity, that we should endeavour the 
setting up of the worship and ordinances of God among ourselves ; 
especially, being increased to some number of inhabitants already, 
and more are daily expected. These and such like considerations 
doe imbolden us whose names are here underwritten, humbly to 
petition this much Honoured Court liberty tobe a Towne of ourselves 
with such others as may be admitted to our Society hereafter. 
And further, we your humble Petitioners are bold to request this 
Honoured Court to grant unto us and our associates for those ends 
formerly exprest such a tract of land as may be in some measure 
comfortable for our future subsistance, as a small village in this 
Commonweal ; namely, so much land as conteines five miles 
square, where it may be found adjoining to our own lands already 
purchased, or upon Natic line, or upon Medfield bounds as this 
Honoured Court shall see meet. And wee who acknowledge our- 
selves subjects of this Commonwealth shall pray as our duty is 
that God would bless and prosper you in all your weighty occasions.

In answer to this Petition, the General Court appointed 
« Ephraim Litilefield and Edward Jackson, a Committee to 
view the place and return their apprehensions." The result 
seems to have been unfavorable. Still they persevered. In 
1674 their petition was renewed ; and though 12 years had in- 
lerve'ned, it had only two more signatures than the first, among 
which appear the names of his three eldest sons and nephew, 
Joseph Morse, Henery Adams and Jonathan Wood, not sub- 
scribed to the first petition. In their second application, the 
same most noble reasons that ever dictated a petition to a Leg- 
islative body, are boldly and prominently avowed. They say, 
after referring to their civil and religious embarrassments, 
« Wherefore for our relief and that wee may not wholly omit 
our duty to spread the Gospel in this wilderness by the procur- 
ing of the ministry of the word amongst ourselves, not only tor 
our edification and consolation, but also that God and the word 
of his grace may be to our posterity a standing refuge, where- 
fore for our encouragement in this work and the better regulat- 
ing affairs amongst us," we humbly petition, &c. In this peti- 
tion, the original of which is still preserved, they modestly leave 
blank the place for the name of their new town, yet we cannot 
doubt but some of them at least had a choice, and that the Gen- 
eral Court consulted and respected it. Daniel Morse was 
among the very first who planted on the West side of Charles 
River, and evidently the leader of this enterprise. He lelt Eng- 
land in the ardor of his youth ; had now attained an age when 
early associations are wont to revive ; was one of the few solitary 
Puritans who remained ; was by far the greatest land-owner 
and contributor in the settlement; precedence was given to his 
name in petitions and the records of public meetings ; and he 
with his sons and nephew were one third of the subscribers to 
this Petition ; so, that his choice of a name would most likely 
have prevailed; and that choice naturally have been the name 
of his native place in Europe. He had the means of securing 
the name he preferred without having it inserted, as was often 
done in similar cases. One of his sisters was the wile ot 
« the most worshipful Capt. Daniel Fisher" of Dedham, lor a 
long time Speaker of the House, whom he calls "his brother; 
and it is no longer doubted that another sister was ihe wile ot 
Hon John Hull, Treasurer of Massachusetts. John Morse, mer- 
chant, then one of the most active citizens of Boston, was his 
nephew ; he knew Gov. Bradstreet and must have had other 

S. E. by (Dea.) Samuel Bullin, his brother-in-law, and S. W. by_ the brook. 
This lot enlarged to 22 acres with improvements, he sold for £20, June 7 
1666, to John Hull, Esq., of Boston, master of the mint for many years, and 
afterwards father-in-law of Chief Justice Sewall, and one of the unrtuta, 
who was induced to purchase and improve a farm in Sherborn for a country 
seat. Four circumstances favor the belief that he was connected with the 
Morses. He had been a Silversmith and Merchant, was 'Treasurer ol 
war," 1675-76, and afterwards Treasurer of Massachusetts. He was a man 
of daring courage, and one of the richest in the Colonies.

friends in a condition to influence the Court to adopt the name 
of his choice. In the act of incorporation, the Court named the 
town after the venerable and classical Sherborn in Dorsetshire, in 
S. W. of England. They were wont to select the name of the 
place from which a distinguished settler came, for the new town 
in which he was a settler or proprietor, and sometimes did so 
contrary to the expressed agreement and wish of the petitioners. 
It is ascertained that many of the early towns derived their 
names in this manner. Now considering the possessions, age, 
character and connexions of Daniel Morse, it seems almost cer- 
tain that the Court took the name of his choice for the 
Town of which he in several respects was the honored 
Father. These circumstances lead to the belief that Daniel 
Morse, with his Father and Brothers, were originally from the 
vicinity of Sherborn, Eng., and traditions among the descend- 
ants of his brother John corroborate it." # 

Twenty or more years of perseverance in seclusion and toils 
had now begun to be rewarded. But the prospect was soon 
clouded. Scarcely could he have known the fate of their 
second petition before they were alarmed by the report of the 
massacre at Swansea by the Indians. They did not, however, 
flee for greater safety, and abandon their infant town to certain 
devastation, but prepared to defend it, as appears from the fol- 
lowing petition signed four weeks before the burning of Med- 
field, and addressed, as is supposed, to Maj. Gen. John Leverett, 
then Governor. 

" May it please your Worship, 

Prostrating my humble service 
to your Worship, I made bold lately to request your help of 4 men 
to be the garrison at my house which is for my family and my sons 
with me, most being married men ; I humbly prosecute my request 
that so it might be that I might have 4 men out of Medfield, and 
that Edward West and Benjamin Fisk (sons-in-law) might be two 
of them, they living in the remote part of Medfield next my farme 
and they being willing to come if liberty by authority were given 
that they might be imprest by authority to be ready when I shall 
call for them. Thus I make bold, humbly begging the everlasting 
blessing and constant presence of the Almighty to be with your 
Worship. 

So prays, 

Your humble servant, 

Daniel Morse, Sen'r, 

Sherborne, 26, 11. in the name of my sons.

" Granted for the present." 

* Rev. Joseph Morse of Stoughton, who was brought up in the immediate 
neighborhood cf his grand uncle Daniel, must have daily heard him con- 
verse, and was in his 18th year, when D. died, left it on record in his fam- 
ily, that their sire came from Devonshire, as his grandson Joseph, late of 
Stoughton, informed me. Sherborn is near the border of Devonshire, 



APPENDIX. 

After the incorporation of Sherborn, Daniel Morse appears 
the most prominent in "ordering its affairs." He was chosen 
first Selectman and his eldest son Town Clerk. He was ap- 
pointed a commissioner with this son, Henry Lealand, and 
Thos. Eames, to negociate with the Natick Indians an exchange 
of 4000 acres now in Ashland and Hopkinton, for the same 
quantity in what now constitutes the N. W. and central parts 
of Sherborn. This they accomplished by stipulating to " pay 
200 bushels of corn to boot ; " " one-half in hand : and at a 
subsequent Town Meeting for equalizing the cost of the ex- 
change, Daniel and his sons assumed to pay three fourths of 
the amount. 

In 1679, Daniel, with his nephew Joseph Morse and one other, 
were chosen to " treat with a minister for settlement." In 
this they were unsuccessful ; and the condition of their becom- 
ing a town not having been complied with, Daniel with his 
sons, Benoni Larned and others, petitioned the General Court in 
1680, imploring " aid that they may be relieved of their difficul- 
ties, professing a desire to " settle a pious and able minisler, with- 
out which their hopeful plantation would be ruined, and they 
and their wives and children be forced either to live like heath- 
en without God's Sabbaths and ordinances, or remove." Oct. 
12, Daniel Morse, senior, and others with the Selectmen, were 
chosen to the very delicate office of " seating the meeting as soon 
as the seats in their meeting house then building should be 
made;" and the next year he w T as elected the first of a Com- 
mittee to divide the common lands of Sherborn. He was now 
suffered to see his town and family advanced in numbers and 
means, but his pious solicitude' for the establishment of the in- 
stitutions and ordinances of the Gospel was not relieved until 
five years after ; as appears from the following notice in the 
diary of Judge Sewall, who had married probably his neice, the 
daughter of Hon. John Hull of Boston. 

"Thursday Mar. 1685, went to the gathering of the Church in 
Sherborne, and ordaining of Mr. Daniel Gookin their Pastor. But 
six brethren and three of the name of Mors. Messrs. Mr. Will- 
son, Mr. Adams, Mr. Nath'l Gookin of Cambridge, managed the 
work. Mr. Nath'l Gookin, the younger, introduced the Elder, a 
happy type of the calling of the Jews. Mr. Torry, Brinsmade, Fisk, 
Esterbrook, Man, Moody, Hubbard, Nehemiah Sherman, Woodruf, 
Rawson Grindal, TVillson, jr. there, and Fellows of the College. 
Only Maj. Generall and self of the magistrates. No relations 
were made but I hope God was with them." 

With what joy and gratitude must this venerable Puritan 
have witnessed the solemn transactions of that day ! After toil- 
ing and suffering for 35 years in the wilderness; having, like a 
missionary, the establishment of the Gospel mainly in view, he 
is permitted just before he departs in peace, to behold such an 
organization effected as he could believe would prove " a stand- 
ing refuge to his numerous posterity." In reviewing the scene,

The original bounds of Natick extended south by Charles 
river, from where the line of Dedham crossed the river " as far 
as the house of Nicholas Wood, and from thence," (his house, 
not the river,) " upon a westerly line 4 miles ; and westerly the 
bounds thereof to extend as far as Cochituate Brook at the com- 
mon passing place or highway that leadeth from Sudbury to 
John Stone's house, then by John Stone's land and Sudbury 
river, extending up this river 4 miles, to be measured by a 
straight line from the said wading place on Cochituate brook ; 
and from the said termination (of this line) of 4 miles, to be 
counted (bounded) by a straight line extending to the aforesaid 
termination of the line of 4 miles that leadeth (west) from the 
aforesaid house of Nicholas Wood. All the land lying within 
the said compass adjoining to the bounds of Sudbury, Dedham, 
and Watertown, not formerly granted to any town or particular 
person to be for the use and behoof of the plantation of Natick. 
Granted 1653. 

The part of Natick lying East and South of Charles river was 
subsequently taken from Dedham ; also 2,500 acres of Needham, 
on the north side of the river. 

The author has been thus particular from an apprehension 
that he might save history on the eve of being lost, and aid in 
the investigation of the history and titles of many places once 
owned by Morses, whose instruments of conveyance, if ever 
executed, have failed to be recorded. 



APPENDIX. 

one can hardly refrain from the wish that the veil had been 
lifted, and he favored with a vision of the blessings already 
realized. 

In 1687 he made his Will, giving his homestead to his 
youngest child Samuel, providing for his Widow, confirming to 
Obediah (Deacon) lands previously conveyed in two deeds of 
gift ; to Daniel, his house lot and lands given in two deeds ; to 
Jonathan his house lot and lands " exprest in three deeds," and 
to Nathaniel (Dea.) he made similar confirmation. To his 
daughter Bathiah Perry he gave ;£39 in movables, a house lot 
and land pre-conveyed ; to Mary West land in Dedham, and 
land near the meeting house valued at £3i lOd ; to Bathsheba 
Fiske £19 lOd to make her portion equal to her sisters ; to 
Lydia Wight a part of the lot he " purchased of his Brother 
Daniel Fisher of Dedham," supposed to be in Dov. or S.^ Hav- 
ing set his house in order, he the following year died, iE. 75 ; and 
is believed to have been interred in the " neglected Burying 
Ground " in the south part of Sherbom. For the benefit of the 
present and future generations and the honor of his race, a hope 
is indulged that amongst his numerous and affluent descend- 
ants, the means and spirit will no longer be wanting to insure 
him a monument worthy of the Patriarch of Sherborn. 

Page 3, No. IV. 

Joseph Morse is recorded as having with his brother Daniel 
taken the Freeman's oath May 6, 1635, though he did not leave 
England earlier than on the 18th of April, and was then aged 
20. There must be an error in the Records, or the voyage was 
made in 19 days, during which he attained his majority and was 
admitted to his oath without a year's probation, contrary to law 
and common usage. He first settled in Watertown and early 
united with the Church. He attended the first recorded meet- 
ing of the proprietors of Dedham, Aug. 15, 1636, and was with 
Daniel among the first to whom land was ihere allotted, of which 
" they did not take immediate possession, which occasioned 
some complaint." He removed to Dedham in 1637. In "1649 
Dedham was granted so much land, Meadow and Upland on 
the Western bounds of them beyond the river so as that they 
erect a village there within one year from the 22 of 8 mo." 
Joseph Morse was one of the proprietors of this grant who com- 
plied with the condition, and called their Town Meadfield, from 
the "broad meadows" which it embraces. Such was the 
character of the petitioners, that the General Court, in incorpo- 
rating Medfield, dispensed with the other customary conditions, 
such as the building of a meeting-house, the settlement of a 
minister, and the reservation of lands for public uses ; knowing 

* A farm lot had been given Capt. Daniel F. by the proprietors of Sherborn 
for being " helpful in undertaking the settlement of the Plantation." 



APPENDIX. 

that they would certainly and promptly attend to these things 
from regard to higher authority : and it is certain that the Court 
was not disappointed. Joseph settled here with his father. How 
long he remained is uncertain. Prior to his death, in 1654, he 
seems to have removed to Dorchester, where his wife's connec- 
tions had previously settled; as appears from the following 
record : " 1654, 4 mo. Inventory of the estate of Joseph Morse 
of Dorchester which he had at Medfield apprized at £183 by 
Tho. Wight, George Barbour, and Robt. Heusdall." In 1652 
his estate had there been rated at d£260 and yet it was the 4th in 
amount rated that year. No trace of his grave has yet been dis- 
covered. Four years after, his widow married Tho. Boyden at 
Boston, and returned to Medfield. Boyden became guardian of 
her children, whom tradition says he defrauded. The sons set- 
tled in Medfield ; and Samuel, the elder, inheriting a double 
portion of his father's land and the bequest of his grandfather, 
settled on the homestead, the place which they had jointly im- 
proved, half a mile S. E. of Medfield meeting house. Two 
of his gr. gr. grand daughters, Mrs. Abigail and Mrs. Mary 
Morse, aged # 86 and 83, are still living upon the same place, and 
merit our gratitude for the preservation of the history of their 
family.

" In the great crisis in the liberties of the colony, when Ran- 
dolph was engaged in those hostile measures which resulted in 
the subversion of the charter and the oppressive administration 
of Gov. Andros, who declared the title to lands void and exacted 
heavy sums for the re-purchase of them, many were discouraged 
and disposed to submit to the encroachments of the British Gov- 
ernment, while others were for adhering to the charter according 
to their construction of it, and leave the event. Here was the 
origin of the two parties, Patriots and Prerogative men, or Whigs 
and Tories, between whom, says Minot, controversy seldom 
intermitted, and was never ended until the separation of the two 
countries. Daniel Fisher, the ancestor of Fisher Ames, was the 
representative from Dedham, the speaker of the house, and the 
leader of the Patriots among the Deputies. He was one of the 
four whose impeachment, says Randolph to the Earl of Claren- 
don, ' will make the whole faction tremble.' " 

" Grievously oppressed by the administration of Andros and hear- 
ing indirectly of the landing of the Prince of Orange in Englaud 
and the consequent revolution in the government there, the people 
of Massachusetts, without waiting for a confirmation, determined to 
take its truth for granted, and simultaneously set about accomplishing 
a revolution of their own. On the morning of April 18, 1689, Boston 
was in arms. The governor and Council were seized and confined, 
and the old magistrates reinstated. The country people came into 
town in such rage and heat as made all tremble to think what would

follow. Nothing would satisfy them but that the Governor must be 
bound in chains or cords and put in a more secure place ; and for 
their quiet he was guarded by them to the fort. Whose hand was 
on the collar of that prisoner leading him through the excited 
crowd, at once securing him from escape and guarding him from 
outrage ? It was the hand of Daniel Fisher of Dedham ; aye, ' a 
second Daniel come to judgment,' a son of the farmer, and heir of 
his energetic ardor in the cause of freedom, the son of Abigail 
Morse, and a just representative of traits characteristic of her father's 
race for at least five generations."

John continued the business of his Father, and also became 
a shopkeeper^ and traded in real estate, had deeds of land on 
" School House street;" of Warehouse and Wharf, and sold 
four acres South of the Common, in 1661, for d£30. Boston in 
1673 contained 1500 families. His name first occurs Sept. 7, 
1657, as clerk of "the Artillery Company," now " the Ancient 
and Honorable," subscribed to a form of constitution which they 
adopted, and asked the General Court to confirm. He was then 
only 18. June 25, 1675, one day before the news reached Bos- 
ton of the massacre at Swansea by King Phillip, Lieut. Theoph- 
ilus Frary and John Morse were appointed by the Council 
" Commissaries for provisions in the present expedition." June 
28, they received two orders " with the consent of the council," 
one directing them to take provisions to the commissioners of 
the army; another Sept. 24, to relieve Thomas Welden, and 
another Sept. 13, 1676, to fetch to Boston the country stores at 
Marlboro', and April 28, 1676, John Morse and his two men, 
William Learned and Samuel Allen, with Richard, Nath'l and 
John Sanger, were " exempted from other service to help Caleb 
Church guard the mill at Watertown." 

In 1678 he made his will, giving his eldest daughter, Eliza- 
beth, to Mrs. Nathaniel Williams, and one-sixth of his estate " to 
improve for her," and the remainder to his wife to use for the 
equal benefit of the rest of his children. His estate was ap- 
praised at d£610. Oct. 18, 1679, his widow Elizabeth petitions 
the General Court for compensation for his services, alleging 
that "he did serve his country as Commissary for above two 
years." He was one of the original proprietors of Mendon, 
where lands were assigned him in 1667 and 8. "John Morse of 
Mendham, died at Roxbury 25 (8) 1679," leaving a widow Eliz- 
abeth and land on the East side of the River," probably in 
Medfield, and an inheritance from his Grandfather Samuel. 
When a famous Synod at Boston decided that parents not in 
full communion with the Church, might, on a mere profession of 
their faith, bring their children to baptism, he joined the re- 
monstrants, and with his wife and others left the First Church, 
and united to form the Third Church, now the Old South. 

* In 1675 and '76 he was of the firm Morse & Williams, probably broth- 
ers-in-law.

Ezra M., 3 having at the age of 14 lost his energetic father 
at Boston, was probably committed to the care of some friend at 
Dedham, where he reappears at the age of 21, and unites 
with two others in purchasing for £250 the only mill in D. sup- 
plied with water from Charles R. through a canal leading " thro' 
Purchase Meadow to E. Brook. The next year ('63,) he sold 
out his interest in the mill to Nath'l Whiting. In 1664 a new 
corn mill being wanted, the town gave him and D'l Pond leave 
to build one on the same artificial stream above Whiting's. 
Against this Whiting remonstrated, and in '67 brought a suit 
against M., which did not result in his favor. Whiting next 
commenced a new water course, of which complaint was made, 
and both parties being summoned before the selectmen and ad- 
vised with, agreed not to interfere with each other's rights. 
Complaints however continuing to be made, and the removal of 
Morse's dam being judged advisable, he, at his own suggestion, 
received from Ded. a grant of 40 acres near Neponset river at the 
old saw mill or at Everett's Plain, where he might find it most 
to his satisfaction. In 1678 he had leave granted him to cut 
timber to build a saw mill on Hawes' brook in the way leading 
to the S. meadow ; and in '81 to make a reservoir for the same 
on common lands. " 

" It is worthy of remark, that the descendants of Nathl. Whiting 
and of Ezra Morse have held the principal mill seats of D. quite 
down to the present generation. The numerous branches of both 
of these respectable families, have always been among our most 
substantial citizens." Haven.

That Ephraim M. 3 settled at Newton, Long Island, is 
inferred from the early occurrence there of the names peculiar 
to his family : from the introduction of his nephew John 
at the age of 16 years to preach at N. ; from his being alive at 
the date of his mother's will, in 1693 ; and from the non-appear- 
ance of his name on any town or church record in Massachusetts, 
after Phillip's war, in which he served. The silence of the records, 
to which his family were so attentive, leads to the belief that he 
had no children of his own ; and that after the death of his 
brother, Commissary John, and the marriage of his widow to a 
second husband, he adopted their orphan, John, carried him to 
Newton, where he married young, and became the progenitor 
of the Long Island Morses. The names of Ephraim, John, and 
Abigail, and the time of their births as near as can be gathered, 
are in perfect harmony with this supposition ; and its correctness 
may be further inferred if the original race on Long Island 
were uncommonly precocious and combative.

Rev. Joseph Morse graduated in 1695, and was the 
same year chosen schoolmaster in Dedham, where it is pre- 
sumed he studied divinity under Rev. Joseph Belcher. He 
preached 1701 — 7 in Watertown Precinct, (now Western) with- 
out gathering a church. About 1707 he removed to Dorchester 
"New Village," afterwards Stoughton, but now Canton, where 
he preached ten years and nine months before a church of twen- 
ty members was gathered, Oct. 30, 1717, to elect him Pastor, 
an act indispensable in those limes, to ordination. " In a few 
weeks after his ordination, two persons discovered a disposition 
not to obey those who had the rule over them, and who were 
accordingly laid under suspension by the Church; but the affair 
was soon after accommodated. In 1723 several charges were 
exhibited before the Church against their pastor, one of which 
was for preaching false doctrine ; but the church voting that they 
were not uneasy or dissatisfied with Mr. M., these difficulties 
appeared to have subsided. In 1725 Elhanan Lyon exhibited a 
charge against Mr. M. respecting something said by him before 
a Committee of the General Court. The Church at first voted 
that it did not properly belong to ecclesiastical cognizance ; but 
difficulties increasing, an ecclesiastical council was called, ihe 
second result of which was communicated to the Church Nov. 
11, which was not accepted. April 1726, the Church called 
another Council, to convene on the 13th of May, who published 
their result the next day. June 14th it was proposed to the 
Church to concur with the advice of the Rev'd Council in their 
result — which was not accepted. Finally a Council of nine 
Churches, was held at Dedham, July 17, 1727. It appears that 
they then censured both parties, and required them to acknowl- 
edge their faults to each other; and declared that if the Church 
of Stoughton do not fall in with this advice, that refers to the 
confessing their faults, and so remove the scandal they are lying 
under, they are to be looked upon as scandalous and disorderly, 
and are to be dealt with as such by neighbor Churches." This 
the Church interpreted as referring to many of the Church who 
had proceeded against Mr. Morse much otherwise than the Gos- 
pel directs. The Church as a body never acted against him. It 
is probable that this council advised the dismission of Mr. Morse. 
Mutual acknowledgments took place; Mr. M. continued his 
relations as a Brother after his pastoral connection ceased, and 
died in communion with the Church, and was interred in what is 
now Canton. Mr. M.'s records evince him to have been a cor- 
rect scholar, and they are interspersed with many pious reflec- 
tions. — E. Dunbar's Sermon. During the ten years of his 
ministry 31 persons were added to the Church, and 167 baptized. 

His estate was inventoried at £1,763 5s. and 6d. His library 
at £35, and his plate at d£37 10s., a consequence, probably, of his 
having been persecuted out of the pulpit.

Rev. John Morse, 4 of Newton, N. Y., had the precocity of a 
Pascal. I have not mistaken ihe record that makes him 10 have 
been born 31 (1) 1679, O. S., or A pi. 10, 1679, N. S., and that 
an error should have crept into the College catalogue, which 
makes him 10 have graduated in 1692, is wholly improbable. If 
ihen the Commencements were as now held in August, he 
could have been no more than 13 years and 4 months old at his 
graduation ; less than 16 when he began to preach at Newton, 
and not more than IS at his ordination. Was such precocity 
original or hereditary ? and if the latter, from what stock was it 
derived ? That it was hereditary, may be presumed from his 
uncle, John, after passing his youth in the country, having, on 
moving into Boston, received marks of public respect and con- 
fidence altogether above his years, and being enabled at 18, on 
the death of his father, to take charge of his business and enlarge 
and prosecute it successfully. 

Circumstantial evidence exists of a connexion between the 
family of John Morse and Richard Evered, of Ded., the ances- 
tor of Pres. Everett, and others as renowned for precocity as for 
learning and eloquence.^ Hence the suspicion that John M., 
the grandfather, married the sister of Richard E. or of his wife. 
None of the descendants, however, of either of the brothers of 
John, senr., have been remarkable for early maturity. 

Rev. John, at the age of 18 " Clerk at Newtowne, Long Is- 
land," buried his father, Ezra, of Dedham, and being "resident 
in Boston" on a visit, was appointed guardian of his brother 
Seth, aged 10. In 1700 Rev. John at Newton made his will, 
giving all his property to his brother Seth, of Dedham," and 
immediately after the Court at Boston appointed Seth another 
guardian. Rev. John d. unm. a. ab. 21.

In 1699 was "granted to Saml. Morse and his assigns, &c, 
1,400 acres of land as it lieth in that division agreed upon and 
laid out on the N. side of ' Sherborn ' road leading to the falls, 
the propriety thereof being purchased of several of the proprie- 
tors of this town of Dedham as appears by deed under their hands 
to said Samuel M. abutting upon Mathew Rice in part and John 
Coller in part toward the N. ; upon Natick lowards the W. ; and 
S. upon the school farm in part; a pond and a brook running 
out of the same, in part towards the E." This tract was subse- 
quently included in Needham Leg, extending almost to Saxon- 
ville ; which, by a recent exchange of territory, has become an- 
nexed to Natick. Tradition says, that Indians in Deerfield, 
wishing to join the Naticks, bargained their lands there for an 
equal number of acres in Dedham, adjoining Natick, and that 
the tract assigned in exchange, being afterwards found to over- 
run, the amount of the Leg was detached and sold to Samuel 
Morse, and his title recorded as above in the books of the pro- 
prietors of Dedham. 

In his will, 1704, he gave to his sons Samuel, Eleazar, and 
Benj., " land purchased of Dedham, near Natick, 300 acres and 2 
more lots on and by the river," which with " the estate in his fa- 
ther's farm," bequeathed to them and their 4 sisters, was appriz- 
ed at £583 only. Samuel settled upon the land in N. ; Eleazar 
upon " the Farm," and Benj. d. young.

6. Wtn, Morse early exhibited capacity and moral worth, be- 
came a member of the chh. and was honored by public confi- 
dence. Insanity had never invaded his family in this country, 
but he being in the service under Gen. Bradstreet, in the second 
French war, and compelled with his company to march 14 miles 
on the bed of a river in water, was, wiih his companions, seized 
with a fever, with which half the company died. The rest be- 
came temporarily insane. His insanity regularly returned at 
intervals of 14 years during the remainder of his days ; and finally 
led to his exposure and death in a snow storm. As his insanity 
was not inherited, it was not transmitted, and his descendants 
rank among the most substantial and enterprising citizens of 
Athol.

4. Levi 7 , a Revolutionary pensioner, went privateering to 
France early in the revolution. He served six weeks in 
Rhode Island at the time of Sullivan's expedition, in the com- 
pany of Capt. Amos Perry, of Sherborn, and Col. Hawes's regi- 
ment. "In 1778," he says, "was engaged several days and 
nights in constructing redoubts, and exposed to cannon shot and 
shells, several days. We were overtaken with a severe storm 
whilst on the Island, without tents to cover us. In 1779 and '80 
I served in Sherborn 15 months, (pr. in guarding public stores 
kept there) ; enlisted under Reuben Partridge, commanding offi- 
cer in the State of Massachusetts, for the term of three months at 
each engagement. In 1781 I served three months in the state of 
New York, at West Point, Peekskill, and vicinity." Another 
paper labelled, " A list of towns from Sherborne to West Point," 
contains, " Messmates, Sergt. Joseph Dows, Daniel Brick, Abra- 
ham Coolidge, Joseph Fairbanks, Jesse Phipps, Levi Morse." He 
was also in the expedition for the suppression of the Shays' Re- 
bellion. He must have gone to Union as early as 1788, and prob- 
ably in 1787. He was in Annapolis in 1785, and perhaps from 
one to two years altogether, about that time. After first going to 
Union, he generally returned for several years to spend ihe win- 
ters at Sherborn. He taught school in Meduncock,now Friend- 
ship, Maine, where he became acquainted wiih Polly Gay 
Bradford, born 8 Nov. 1772, at Annapolis, (now Onslow) Nova 
Scotia, whom he m. 8 March, 1792. She was probably a de- 
scendant of Gov. Wm. Bradford, of Plymouth. Her father, Car- 
penter Bradford, b. at Kingston, Mass., "put out" to a shoemaker, 
ran away, enlisted, was captured when about 16 years old, de-

tained as a prisoner one year in Canada, during which he was 
waiter lo a Catholic priest, returned and married Mary Gay in 
Stoughton, Mass. When the neutral French or Acadia ds were 
exiled from Nova Scotia, and their lands with the improvements 
were offered gratuitously to settlers, he went to Annapolis, N. S., 
where he was at the commencement of the Revolutionary war. 
Then the British authorities summoned the inhabitants to take the 
oath of allegiance. He held up his hand ; bul, being an ardent 
whig, when the words were uttered, "you solemnly swear to be 
true to King George," he substituted the words George Washing- 
ton for King George. "Tut, tut," said the officer, " that will not do." 
Conscious it was time for him to flee, he left the place the same 
night with another whig, and proceeded towards Halifax. Just 
before arriving there, a boatman, either loyal or timid, refused to 
take them across a river. They threatened to shoot him ; but the 
difficulty was compromised by their being allowed to take the 
boat and leave it on the opposite side of the stream. He passed 
on by land to Castine, where he enlisted under Capt. Eddy and 
remained some time. After the Revolutionary service, he settled 
in Meduncock, now Friendship, sent for his family, and there 
died. The genealogy has never been carefully traced, but this 
Carpenter Bradford may have been the son of Carpenter, the son 
of Elisha, the son of Joseph, the son of Gov. William. Mr. 
Morse was m. 8 March, 1792. " 1792, May 22, set out from 
Meduncook to move my wife to Union ; arrived there 23d May."

visited, and at times resided with their Uncles, Ens. Henry 
Phillips, Deacon of the First Church in Boston, and Clerk of the 
Market, and Hon. John Hull, the father-in-law of Chief-Justice 
Sewall and other connections, who belonged to the nobility of 
the Colony ; and if so, it will explain the origin of the arislo- 
cratic feeling which he and his brother Capt. Joseph Morse, trans- 
mitted to their descendants of three or four generations; and 
which, however absurd, may not even yet be completely eradi- 
cated. Lt. Morse became an energetic, thrifty, and honored 
citizen of Medfield, where he inherited the place of his father 
and grandfather, and probably built the first mill. . 

On the fatal morning of Feb. 21, 1675-6, he rose very early, 
and walked 3-4 of a mile south-east from the town, to fodder his 
cattle. In doing this he uncovered the leg of an Indian without 
disturbing him ; and fearing to engage with him alone, lest oth- 
ers in concealment might be roused to overpower him, and 
believing it the intention of ihe enemy to fire his barn, he, to 
save his cattle, tarried to turn them out before he ran back to give 
the alarm. For this he was censured. His house, the most re- 
mote one in the southeast part of the village, he passed just in 
season to hurry off his family to the garrison ; and no sooner had 
they left, than the signal for a general assault was given by the 
firing of his house. 

He was commissioned Lt. by Sir Wm. Phipps, Nov. 27, 1693, 
and reappointed by the Earl of Bellomont, Oct. 3, 1699, when 
60 years of age.

Hon. Capt. Joseph Morse settled in Bogistow about 1670, on 
the west side of Charles river. The trace of his milk cellar and 
tan vals are still to be seen, one mile and a third north of Death's 
bridge, on the west side of Sewall's brook, ten rods south of 
Holbrook's mill. The site of his house was about three rods 
north-west of the cellar hole, over which the road now passes. 
At this time his nearest neighbors were, on the south-west, Hen- 
ry Leland, three fourths of a mile; soulh, Thomas Holbrook, 
one and one fourth mile; and north-east, his father-in-law and 
son Jonathan, one half mile. 

Mehetabel Wood, who became his wife, was the first white 
child born in a terrtiory comprising two entire townships, and 
large portions of four others. Her father, Nicholas Wood, a man 
of character and consideration, was from Dorchester, where his 
father's name had been enrolled among ihe very first planters of 
the town, and where he must have shared with them in the pri- 
vations and, as it is hoped, spiritual joys thus described bv Capt. 
Clap.

Affairs of y e Plantation ; in Granting many Parcels of Land & Mead- 
ow to I suppose every particular Person; but for y e House-lots 
where they first Set down we have no Records of them, they being 
taken up as aforesaid. 

In these years great was y e Straits and Difficulties these People 
met with for want of Provision for themselues & Families ; and as 
Capt. Clap expresseth it, " Oh y e Hunger that many suffered, and 
saw no hope in an Eye of Reason to be supplyed, only by Clams, 
& Muscles, and Fish; and Bread was so very Scarce, that some- 
times y e very Crusts of my Fathers Table would have been very 
Sweet unto me : And when I could have Meal fy Water Sf Salt, 
boiled together-, it was so good, who could wish better. And it was 
not accounted a strange thing in those Days, to Drink water, .and 
to eat Sam]} or Homine without Butter or Milk. Indeed it would 
have been a strange thing to see a piece of Roast Beef, Mutton or 
Veal ; tho' it was not long before there was Roast Goat" And yet 
this people were very contented under their outward wants so long 
as they could enjoy the worship of God wihout any molestation: 
they did not meditate a Return to England, but as y e S d Capt. Clap 
saith, *' 1 do not remember that ever I did wish in my Heart that I 
had not come into this Country, or wish myself back f gain to my 
Fathers House ; Yea I was so far from that, that I wished <fe ad- 
vised some of my Brethren to come hither a:so, which accordingly 
one of my Brothers and those two that ha 1 married my two Sisters, 
sold their means and came hither. 

" The Lord Jesus was so plainly licld out in y c Preaching of y e 
Gospel to poor lost Sinners, and y c absolute Necessity of y e Neiv 
birth, and Gods spirit in those Days was pleased to Accompany y e 
word with such efficacy upon y e Hearts of many ; that our Hearts 
were quite taken off from Old England & set upon Heaven. The 
Discourse not only of y e Aged, but of y° Youth also, was not, How 
shall we go to England? (though some few did not only so discourse 
but also went back again) but How shall we go to Heaven? Haue I 
true Grace wrought in my Heart? Haue I Christ or no? O how 
did Men and Women, young and old, Pray for Grace, beg for Christ 
in those Days ; and it was not in vain : Many were converted, and 
others established in Believing ; many joined unto y e Several 
Churches where they lived." I mention this to show what sort of 
people they were that came first into this Country, what their Spirit 
& Design was, what a fervent lone and zeal they had for God & 
his Instituted worship, how contented under their Straits and Diffi- 
culties, while they enjoyed y e Gospel & y e free profession of their 
Religion." 

Nicholas Wood, with Andrew Pitcher and Thomas Holbrook, 
in 1653, had purchased of Richard Parker of Boston five hun- 
dred and thirty-five acres of land at Bogistow.^ This they 

* Prior to the full incorporation of Medfield, May 22, 1650, the General 
Court granted farms on the west side of Charles river, beyond Dedham. in 
what is now Sherborn and Med way, to several gentlemen in payment of 
public debts, and as gifts, viz. : To Rev. John Allen of Dedham, in 1643, was 
granted 200 acres. "To Capt Robert Kayne Oct. 23, 1649; 1,074 acres 
'Meadow & upland upon Pawsett Hill bejond Dedham village' (Medfield)

first divided inlo three qualities, plain,^ upland, and meadow, as 
was then the custom, and then divided each quality into three 
parts, giving each man scattered lots. After the division, Hol- 
brook bought 80 acres of P. in three lots. On one of 20 acres 
he placed Henry Leland as a tenant in 1654, and twelve years 
after, sold it to him; L. having, in 1660, purchased Brown's 
grant at a third sale for £40 on three years' credit, and probably 
conveyed to H. in exchange a part of the same near Death's 
Bridge, where H. next built. Wood s. on the north-east part of 
Parker's grant, and as a senior, possessed of more property, and 
as the leader of the enterprise, to him belongs the distinction of 

N." & N. W. & W. by wast lands : to Richard Brown of Watertown at the 
same time 200 acres bounded on the S. & S W. by Kayne's ; on the E. by 
Charles R. ; on the N. W. (pr. N. E ) by Richard Parker ; and on the N. W. 
and W. by wast lands : To Richard Parker of Bosion at the same time 435 
acres bounded south by Brown's ; on the S. E. by Charles R. ; on the E. by 
the upland running into the River; and on the N. W. the W. and S. W. by 
waste land ; and 100 acres more sold to him by the surveyor general:" 
Parker's lot was to "continue so far on the River taking in the meadow on 
both sides as lyeth on the E. side of the path going from Pawssett Hill to 
Natick:" To Simon Bradstreet in 1656, was laid out "800 acres'' which 
seems to have been bounded on the N. W. by Natick ; E. by Charles River ; 
S. by the farm pond and Parker. Indian rights, if any existed, were ex- 
cepted. To Thomas Holbrook, 1657. was given 50 acres, and he purchased 
of the General Court 43 more, which made up " the upland running into 
the River" E. of P's grant; to Capt. Eleazar Lusher, May 26, 1659, was 
granted 250 acres the S. angle thereof lying near Medfield new grant, (now 
E. Med way,) and the N. angle near the S. W. angle of Natick bounds ; and 
also 12 acres of meadow (SewalPs) in two parcels beyond the N. W. angle, 
lying on the brook Wennakening, (now SewalPs.) which Lusher sold to 
Henry Adams of Medfield. 15 (15) 1660, who is presumed to have sold it 
to Hon. John Hull in exchange for lands he had in M. At the decease of 
H. it passed to his son-in-law, Judge Sewall.f To Dean Winthrop and 
Francis Vernon, May 11, 1759, was laid out 700 acres as it abutteth upon 
Medfield (Med way) line in part towards the S. and a stony ridge in part 
and Bogestow brook in part towards the K. and S. E. ; and upon a Pond 
( VVinthrop's, now in Holliston) in part towards the W. and upon waste lands 
on all other parts. No other grants are ascertained to have been made 
within the limits of ancient Sherborn prior to her incorporation, 1674. The 
remainder were granted by the Court to the farmers then settled upon these 
grants with the proviso that they should set apart 200 acres " for the coun- 
try," having no part of them themselves, but that they should be distributed 
amons such other persons as would come to inhabit in S. and as the major 
part should think meet. Fifty acres only should be allowed to each new 
settler until 20 new families should be settled there ; and then the whole 
not already granted should be disposed of as the major part of the inhabi- 
tants qualified to vote should judge meet.:): The Court annexed no other 
condition, as in the solitary case of Medfield, implying a confidence in these 
few petitioners probably without a parallel in the previous acts of that body. 
* Their plain, probably cleared by the Indians, was north-east of the 
ancient Leland homestead in Sherborn, where Wood and his company are 
presumed to have had their first enclosure, and to have raised their first corn. 

t On this farm, it is believed, was built, about 1878, bv II. "s tenant and brother-ill law, 
Dea. Bullen from Medfield, the first stone wall in Sherborn: which convinced the set- 
tlers of its feasibility, and prevented their hauling cedar rails from their precious swamp 
in the West of Holliston ; to facilitate which they had laid out a direct road of 10 miles, 
and divided the swamp so as to give each man a small lot.

first planting Sherborn. Capt. Morse settled on the north part of 
the same grant, having, it is presumed, bought Pitcher's remaining 
98 acres in an unimproved state. Here imagination paints him 
wielding the axe, the scythe, the hoe, the flail, and the swindling 
knife, clad in undyed woollen and tow fabrics from the spinning 
wheel and loom of his better half; breakfasting on bean soup, 
supping on milk and hominy, and dining on wild fowl, bears 
meat, or venison, with turnips, brown bread, and a hard Indian 
pudding for a dessert ; every Sunday morning tidily dressed, row- 
ing his wife across Charles river in a log canoe, and walking 
with her four miles through swamps and woods to Medfield 
meeting and back again; or fording the broad stream on horse- 
back, with Hitty on a pillion behind him, and their child on his 
left arm ; spurring up Dobbin lest they be too late and ihe minis- 
ter go in before them ; cheered with hope, soothed with love, con- 
tented and happy ; when Indian hostilities began, and menaced 
all their earthly joys and prospects. 

During Philip's war, Capt. Morse was sorely tried, and, ac- 
cording to tradition, his combativeness, largely developed by 
nature, was largely called into action. On that memorable 
morning of Feb. 21, 1675-6, when Medfield was assaulted by 
Philip at the head of "500 warriors," laid in ashes, and 18 per- 
sons massacred, he was at his remote and feeble settlement, with 
a wife near confinement, and her sister-in-law still nearer, whose 
husband, being on the other side of the river, fell the first victim 
to the fierce lomahawk. The warriors were now dancing in 
fiendish exultation on the west side of the river: the only bridge 
by which they could flee to a stronger garrison in Medfield, or 
draw relief from thence, was on fire ; and the two or three garri- 
sons of Bogestow consisted of only about ten or twelve men 
each; so that immediate destruction seemed before them. The 
effect of all was, the premature confinement and death of the sis- 
ter-in-law ; and Mrs. Morse subsequently lost her child. The 
Indians deferred their attack until the 6th of May, when "they 
met with a notorious repulse at a stone house on the margin of 
Bogestow Pond. On the 2d of July there was near this a new 
conflict in the woods, and more execution done upon the ene- 
my." "So vigorous was the attack upon them that they never 
dared to show their faces there afterwards." Capt. M. is under- 
stood to have been personally engaged in these conflicts, and by 
his courage and conduct to have won the confidence of the 
public in him as a soldier. Capt. M. signed the petition for 
the incorporation of Sherborn in 1674, and was among the first 
received as inhabitants; and he subsequently enjoyed the confi- 
dence of his fellow citizens, and received the highest honors in 
their gift, however humble the present sense of the terms by 
which these honors were expressed. He was chosen Capt. of their 
only company of militia, one to treat with a minister to settle in 
S. to build a parsonage, to preserve order and obedience to laws,

and often to moderate Town meetings, serve as selectman, and 
represent S. in the great and General Court at Boston ; also to 
locate roads and divide the common lands, objects of paramount 
interest and importance to their infant town and to posterity. 
His name very often appears subscribed to important documents 
in neat though heavy characters, always slanting to the left ; and 
it is evident that the public had great confidence in his integrity, 
judgment and influence. He seems to have succeeded nearer 
than any other man in inheriting the patriarchal influence of his 
Uncle Daniel. His remains were interred upon an eminence in 
the ancient but now neglected Burying Ground in the S. part of 
Sherborn. His head stone, broken by the plough of a barbarian, 
barely enables one to identify his grave. A gneiss slab, with rude 
etching, marks the grave of his second wife, H. M., situated a few 
paces to the left or S. E. of his. On the right or N. W. side 
and nigher to it, is the head stone of his third wife: 

Shortly before his death he executed the following Will : 

In Dii Nomine Amen, this fifteenth day of February Anno 
Domini One thousand Seven hundred and sixteen, Ipso Anno 
Rigni Regis Georgii Magnite Brittanite &c. Quarto. I, Joseph 
Morse of Sherborn, in the County of Middlesex, within his majes- 
ty's province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England, yeoman,

all I give and recommend my soul into the hands of God who gave 
it; and my body I recommend to the Earth to be interred in a de- 
cent Christian manner, at the discretion of my Executors hereinafter 
named, nothing doubting but at the General Resurrection I shall 
receive the same again by the mighty power of God: And as touch- 
ing such worldly estate as herewith it hath pleased God to bless me 
in this life, I give demise and dispose thereof as followeth, viz : 

Imps. I give and bequeath unto Hannah my well beloved wife

dend land before named, lying on the westerly side of the aforesaid

fore advanced for him upon his settlement, his full part and portion 
out of my Estate. Item, I give and bequeath unto my son Isaac 
Morse and his heirs and assigns forever, all that part of a certain 
farm situate in Sherborn aforesaid, yet undisposed of, which I pur- 
chased of Moses Adams, being one moiety or half part of a cer- 
tain farm, and also all the land which I purchased of Thomas Hol- 
brook, the same lying adjoining the aforesaid farm land ; and fur- 
ther my will is that my said son Isaac shall have out of my Es- 
tate at my decease a good horse and a pair of good steers not less 
than four years old, unless he receives the same or the value there- 
of in lieu thereof in my life-time and I also give and bequeath

two equal parts, being divided to them, their heirs and assigns for- 
ever, all my farm whereon I now dwell, situate in Sherborn afore- 
said with all the houses edifices buildings and appurtenances what- 
soever thereto belonging, and also all and singular, my other lands

thereto belonging in Sherborn aforesaid or elsewhere which are not 
otherwise disposed of in this my will, and also all my goods and 
moveable estate of what nature or denomination soever not other- 
wise disposed of in this my will, provided always and upon con- 
dition that my said two sons David and Asa, their respective heirs

after my decease by my two sons David and Asa Morse out of my 
estate before given and bequeathed to them. 

Item, I give and bequeath unto my daughter Hannah Coolidge 
one-fourth part of my household goods not otherwise disposed of 
in this my will and thirty and seven pounds and ten shilling of mon- 
ey or bills of Credit as aforesaid, to be paid to her, the sd Hannah

lands in Natick, given him there for services as clerk and surveyor. Asa, 
who had the 8. half, sold, about 1727, to Patridge, who sold to Barber, who 
left it to his sons Elisha and Oliver. Walter, the son of Oliver, now occupies 
the S. half and the site of Capt. M.'s buildings.

their portion herein bequeathed unto such deceased, shall be divid- 
ed amongst my surviving children, part and part alike : And in case 
any of my children or their representative will not rest satisfied 
with this my will, but commence any suit in the Law to disannull or 
make void any part thereof my will is, that the portion hereby willed 
and bequeathed unto such child or children, be transferred to and

From this Will he appears to have been rich in lands. 
Sherborn originally extended N. to Sudbury R. in " Framling-

by Sudbury R. and Cold Spring Brook, including portions of 
Ashland and Hopkinton, S. W., it extended to Deer Brook, in-

Hon. Joshua Morse of Medfield inherited the ancient home- 
stead and lands in other places, was largely engaged in trans- 
ferring real estate, was one of the original proprietors of Stur- 
bridge, Innholder at Medfield, and in his house were held the 
meetings of the proprietors of S. for 12 years after their incor- 
poration. He was a member of the church, and educated a son 
for the ministry; served the town in all the offices in their gift, 
sometimes representing them in the General Court. He was a 
strong minded, energetic, mirthful man, and inherited and trans- 
mitted a good amount of aristocratic feeling; and many of his 
descendants of various names, have been respected for talents 
and moral worth, quite down to the present generation. He left 
a large estate for those times, and a character untarnished by 
meanness or fraud.

Joseph Morse s. on Dirty Meadow Hill in S., 100 rods N. E. 
of the late Deacon Micah Leland's, devoted himself to improv-

aged 75, leaving a property, inventoried at d£643,9s. Mrs. Pru- 
dence, his wife, was ihe daughter of Henry Adams of Medfield, 
and her mother was the excellent Prudence Frary, niece of 
Capt. Theophilus F. of Boston, and daughter of John F. of 
Dedham, by his wife Elizabeth Harding, who was received to 
the church in Dedham April 24, 1639, " giving good satisfac- 
tion." Henry Adams, the father of Prudence, was the grand- 
son of Henry A, whose remains sleep in honorable company 
at Quincy ; and the son of Henry jun., who m. Elizabeth 
Paine, 17 (8) 1643, or Elizabeth Russell, according to Pres. A.

the daughter of Gov. John Haynes. Henry A- jun. was slain by 
the Indians at the massacre in Medfield, and his wife Elizabeth 
accidentally shot the day after. Madam Prudence Frary Adams 
died 1750, aged "88, having seen the 5 generation." Her 
daughter Prudence lived to be nearly as old, and her son Jacob 
Morse of Doug, died aged about 83, and her grandson Jacob 
died aged 85, and others at a similar age. (See Longevity of

Capt. David Morse, 4 settled on land near the Indian Village 
of Natick, about 1727. His name appears among first white 
settlers in Natick, except those connected with the mission. 
When they had increased, so that a company of militia could be 
formed, he was appointed Captain. In 1746, when the "plan- 
tation of N." was to be erected into a parish, he was empow- 
ered by the General Court to call the first, meeting. He seems 
to have long been the master spirit among whites and Indians 
in N., for which hereditary combativeness fitted him. No 
record or tradition to my knowledge, accuses him of wronging 
the Indians ; and as some of his sons were early and devo- 
tedly pious, he is presumed to have instructed them by Christian 
examples.

getic mother, and of a most excellent grandmother ; and if our 
young ladies would throw their novels to the flames, and take 
lessons from these granddaughters of Prudence Frary, they 
might be prepared for the great objects of their creation, and 
keep the race from degenerating into imbeciles.

Rev. Doct. Ebenezar Morse of Shrewsbury, now Boylston, 
possessed a strong, clear and vigorous mind, a bold and inde- 
pendent spirit, keen and ready wit, and a kind, benevolent and 
christian heart. He had uncommon versatility of talent. He 
was so bright in the classics as to command in his retired loca- 
tion, a school of young gentlemen preparing to enter college; 
and .it was under his thorough tuition and inspiring influence, that 
the foundation of the literary eminence of many in our early his- 
tory was laid. Of this number was the late accomplished Revd. 
Dr. Harris of Dorchester, whose parents by the destruction of 
Charlestown, at the battle of Bunker Hill, having become house- 
less, placed their son in Mr. M's. family, by whom he was pre- 
pared for college and aided in his embarrassed yet brilliant 
course. Of the value of Mr. M.'s aid, Dr. H. during a long and 
honoured life, was wont to speak, acknowledging his obligations 
and praising his benefactor: and on hearing read the death of 
Mr. AT. he composed some beautiful lines, giving vent to his 



APPENDIX. 

gratitude. Mr. M. was a well read and successful practitioner 
of medicine, and even taught the theory and practice then in 
vogue to some who became eminent in the profession. He 
was a sound- divine and an able writer of sermons as his 
preserved MSS. attest. He united such qualities as com- 
manded the respect and confidence of his coevals in the minis- 
try and the veneration and ardent, love of his youthful brethren. 

With his church he lived in good fellowship : nothing oc- 
cured to interrupt his amicable relations to the citizens of the 
town until 1775, when the spirit of the revolution had broken 
forth with fearful violence, attended with all ils natural and often 
unreasonable jealousies. Mr. Morse, it would seem, whatever 
were his convictions of the measures of the British govern- 
ment or the desirableness of resistance, having expressed doubts 
of the success aimed at, and perhaps also of the morality of 
some measures resorted to, was summarily and informally dis- 
missed by his parish. To such abuse, which virtually deprived 
him of the ministerial office for no offence against any rule of 
Christianily or usage of the Churches, he would not submit. 
He therefore with a part of the church who adhered to the 
pastor, invited a highly respectable council to consider their 
case and aid in securing Mr. M. an honorable dismission, and 
one that might allow of his continuing to minister to such 
of his charge as should choose him. This was done, and he 
spent the remainder of his days in B. actively employed as 
a teacher, physician and preacher; and every attempt of his en- 
emies to destroy or harm him resulted in their defeat and shame. 

The mob having locked the pulpit against the pastor, intro- 
duced something in the form of another preacher, who was soon 
found running about reporting a private conversation had with 
Mr. M. much to his prejudice. Mr. M. hearing what was in the 
wind, contradicted having made the statement alleged. This 
involved the preacher in the charge of falsehood; and finding 
Mr. M. believed, and that he would be obliged to father the lie ; 
he, as stupid as perfidious, attempted to wash his character by 
bringing an action against Mr. M. for falsehood. When they 
met for trial, ihey were called to dine at a common table with 
the venerable judges and members of the bar; when the prose- 
cutor, as if conscious of guilt, without sense to conceal it, or 
modesty to hold his tongue, took the lead of conversation, and 
commenced the vindication of his character, alleging that so 
faultless from his infancy up had he been, that he was never 
whipped but once, and that was for speaking the truth. " Fact," 
said Dr. M. " I guess it cured you." The sport and result of the 

trial may be conceived, but what became of Elder , — how 

long he answered for the tool of party, or whether he became a 
Rogerene, a perfectionist or a quack doctor, cannot now be re- 
membered. 

Rev. Doct. M. lived honoured by all acquaintances capable of 
appreciating intellectual worth and moral excellence; and died 
in his 82d year, lamented.

11. Joseph Morse 5 inherited the energy and enterprise of his 
honored father. He early sojourned in different colonies, as busi- 
ness called. He became the proprietor of the celebrated George 
Tavern, Roxbury, much resorted to by men connected with the 
government. While the expedition was preparing to proceed, 
under General Amherst, against Oswego, he was induced to 
undertake the arduous office of furnishing and forwarding pro- 
visions through the swamps to the army as it should proceed to 
invest that place. The disasters of the campaign fell heavily on 
him. His property, invested in provisions, &c, was seized by 
the enemy and he carried prisoner to Canada, and subjected to 
long and severe confinement, and was finally sent to France. On 
his way he was recaptured by a British man-of-war, drawn out 
of a crowded hold ere he was entirely consumed by vermin, and 
the horrors of his situation reported to George II. The king 
sent for him to the palace, and was so moved by the knowledge 
of his history that he gave him an extensive tract of land in No- 
va Scotia, on which Amherst is situated, promising to lay his 
case before parliament, after which a more ample reward might 
be expected. He returned to New England, and before parlia- 
ment met the king died, and Mr. Morse's case was never pre- 
sented. Having settled his business in New England, he re- 
moved to Nova Scotia and commenced a new town, which he 
named in honor of General Amherst, and where he died some 
years after. His widow married for a second husband, William 
How, who, with other settlers from New England, partaking of 
the spirit of '76, conceived the vain project of revolutionising Nova 
Scotia. They chose Eddy colonel, and How major, and wrote 
to Washington for troops. They were attacked and defeated. 
How entered the American army. In consequence of this, as 
he had an interest through his wife in the estate of her former 
husband, it was confiscated. She returned to Medfield, where 
she lived respected until 1807, and died, aged 83. She was a 
lady of energy and surprising fortitude, and the exertions she 
made to save her property displayed the courage of a Spartan. 

Page 42, No. XXXV. 

1. Henry Morse 5 settled on a tract of rough, unimproved land in 
the N. W. part of Medway, lately annexed to Holliston, and now 
occupied by his gr. gr. grandson, Uriel Culler. In 1726 he built 
a small framed house about twenty-five rods north-east of Cut- 
ler's, and in 1736, another two-story house, which, in 1849, gave 
place to that occupied by Cutler. The great improvements 
which he made still attest his industry and enterprise. When 
his eldest son, Ezekiel, was drafted to join the expedition des- 
lined to reduce for the second time the fortress of Louisburg, his 
wife was expecting confinement before his period of service might 
close. The father, then fortv-six years old, volunteered to take 



APPENDIX. 



the son's place, and shared in the perils and glories of a victory 
celebrated by proclamations and thanksgivings throughout the 
empire. He and his wife were members of the church in Hol- 
liston. He divided his farm to his three sons, and built each of 
them a house and spacious barn. He was mirthful, and high 
minded ; and had moral traits which remind one of the full- 
blooded Englishman. The great physical strength of his family 
he did not transmit, but the type is so legible still in his great 
great-grand children, and so perfect in some, that it can scarcely 
fail to be transmitted through two generations more.

1. Thomas 5 , a member of the church, removed from Sherborn 
to Dublin, in good circumstances, about 1770. A captain'- com- 
mission was sent him by the royal governor, Wentworth, of 
New Hampshire, to keep him loyal, which he indignantly 
spurned ; and ere hostilities commenced he had three sons 
trained to volunteer at the first call, while he, advanced in years, 
remained at home with the others to carry on the farm and en- 
courage his fellow citizens to patriotic efforts. He was pro- 
nounced by one of the signers of the Declaration of Indepen- 
dence, who had much intercourse with him, to be the " shrewdest 
man he ever knew."

Ebenezer Morse at the commencement of the revolution be- 
came involved in the same condemnation with his Rev. Father. 
Irritated by the rashness and taunting of the whigs, he contracted 
a bias in favour of the crown ; and too proud to dissemble his 
opinions or to endure the obloquy to which they exposed him, 
he in 1777 took up his residence in New York. Being an ex- 
pert and skillful carpenter, he was soon placed at the head of a 
yard in which station he continued until the cessation of hostil- 
ities. In the mean time he made the acquaintance of a young 
lady whose mother was from Coburg and father from Wertem- 
burg to whom he was married Sept. 22, 1782. With her he 
soon after embarked for N. S. and settled at Shelburn. Here 
having received the rewards of ability and loyalty in the appoint- 
ment of assistant Commissary and in the grant of a house lot 
and other lands, he built a house and resided until 1788, when 
he returned to the States and soon after settled at Newfane, Vt., 
on a branch of West River. The country was then new, 
densely stocked with trees that defied both fire and steel. Bears, 
wolves, panthers, and wild cats, were thick and bold, and he had 
to encounter all the perils and hardships of a new sparce and 
remote settlement. But in the face of all, he erected comforta- 
ble buildings, cleared up a farm, and 1o the great advantage of 
the settlement added a saw and grist mill. The longevity of his 
race was cut short, in him. He died at the age of 55 a respected 
citizen, manifesting political repentance by works rather than 
confessions.

2. Ezekiel Morse 6 married Rebecca, grand-daugther of Abra-

Isaac of Holliston by wife Martha (Haven) Wessan,born at Lynn 
April 11, 1690, daughter of Nathaniel and Elizabeth H., and 
grand-daughter of Richard Haven, from the west of England, 
about 1644. Ezekiel and wife were both members of the church 
in Holl. He inherited the homestead without his father's 
capacity for, or application to business. He was a zealous 
Whig, and when "the regulars broke out of Boston," he was 
languishing with a mortal injury received from the kick of a 
horse, yet he ordered Abner, his only son, scarcely 16, harnessed 
for the field, and hurried off, to be shot, if need be, but not in the 
back ; and he was obeyed.

8. Dea. James Morse 6 had a puny body, a good mind, and an 
excellent heart. He was early called to fill various offices 
in the gift of Medway ; and often delegated as a counsellor to 
the churches. Spiritual, devout, sound in faith; meek and 
exemplary in his walk ; he was beloved as a brother and confided 
in by his own and other pastors. Too small and feeble for actual 
service, he declined a captaincy, and performed no other military 

a p. 6s.

service in the revolutionary war, except to superintend the guard- 
ing of public stores. Being an ardent whig, and having a good 
command of language, he as moderator of Town meetings and 
superintendent of the drafting of soldiers, which once devolved 
upon the selectmen, exerted an inspiring influence in the cause 
of freedom. It was somewhat proverbial in Medway that "if 
the little Morse was present all would move again." He was 
happily connected in life. His pious and discreet widow sur- 
vived to the age of 88, to adorn a profession made in early life, 
and has appropriately inscribed upon her gravestone in S. Milford, 

By long experience have I known 

Thy sovereign power to save ; 
At thy command I venture down 

Securely to the grave.''

2. Capt. Seth Morse 6 of Westboro, early and long a lead- 
ing citizen of that town, met at the head of his company, ihe 
enemy at Concord on their retreat from Lexington, April, 1775, 
and rendered further service to his country's cause, in the struggle 
that ensued. He had a sound judgment and a powerful frame 
that lasted 90 years, and the tenant within enjoyed and enler- 
tained company with correct reminiscences nearly as long. He 
acquired a good estate which was expended upon his son and 
three grand daughters, upon whom if living, devolves the repre- 
sentation of his family. One of them married an Episcopal 
clergyman in North Carolina.

3. Reuben Morse, 6 Esq., s. in Dublin. N. H., 1763. He was 
a man of quick discernment, deep penetration, and sound judg- 
ment. He early and zealously espoused the cause of his coun- 
try, and throughout the conflict which achieved our indepen- 
dence evinced a patriotism rarely surpassed and never questioned. 
He enlisted in the army of the Revolution, and fought with 
distinguished bravery in the battle at Ticonderoga. His worth 
as a magistrate is still acknowledged in the saying that the 
people of Dublin were not so litigious in Esquire Morse's 
day as at present, a difference justly attributed to the magna- 
nimity and love of peace and good order exercised in the dis- 
charge of the duties of his office. His acts would be good 
precedents for future generations, and serve to expose the mean- 
ness and perfidy of many a modern justice, who for a paltry fee 
encourages litigation to the impoverishment of his neighborhood 
and the alienation of friends. 

Mr. M. enjoyed the entire confidence of his fellow-townsmen, 
and was honored with the highest offices in their gift, the duties 
of which he discharged with ability and an eye to the public 
good. He was a member of the Congregational church in D.

10. Major John Morse 6 served two campaigns in the war of 
the Revolution without compensation and contributed to hire 
three other soldiers ; and after the war, settled with his father on 
the homestead in Dublin. At the age of twenty-three, he was 
chosen to represent D. and Marlboro' in the legislature of N. H., 
but declined. Subsequently, and at sundry times, he accepted 
the office from the citizens of D., the duties of which he dis- 
charged with honor to himself and his constituents; and he has 
left a reputation for sound sense, cool deliberation, strict integrity, 
and promptitude in fulfilling his engagements. When the orig- 
inal political parties arose, he adhered to the administration, then 
befriended, probably, by nineteen twentieths of the intelligence, 
patriotism, and moral virtue throughout the land ; and when the 
tongue of time shall have silenced political slanders, or changed 
the tune now played for office by demagogues, his race may 
proudly boast that he was a federalist. He fell when the contest 
of these parties was at its acme, lamented by a large circle of 
friends, and even his bitterest enemies wept over his remains. 

Page 46, No. XLV. 

11. Jonathan Morse 6 inherited the mirthful and combative 
propensities characteristic of at least six generations of Capt. 
Joseph M.'s descendants. At the age of nineteen, with attain- 
ments equivalent to a modern backwoods education, he enter- 
ed the army, and bravely fought in the battles of Bunker 
Hill, Bennington, Ticonderoga, and Monmouth. At Ben. he 
captured three Hessians, and took their arms. At T. he took 
aim and brought down a British officer ; and on approaching 
the expiring man who was begging for drink, he administered 
to him from his own canteen. In short J. was so humane and 
honest, so rough and ready, that, had he lived to this time, he 
might have been president of the United Slates.

13, 1823, was the 10th child of James Partridge of Medway, b. 
in Medfield, Oct. 1700, the son of John Partridge, Jr., whose 
father was an original proprietor of that town in 1650, then an 
inhabitant of Dedham. Joel's mother was Keziah Bullard, b.

of Benj. Bullard, by wife Elizabeth, who s. on the N. side of

descendants have inherited, under different names, down to the 
youngest generations of the present day, a disposition to insan- 
ity. Most of the suicides ever committed in Medway, and 
the bordering townships, have occurred among them, as well as 
cases of monomania, for which civil and ecclesiastical tribunals 
may not have always made due allowance. Benj. Bullard was 
entrusted with public duties that showed confidence in his san- 
ity. His wife's father, Geo. Thorp, was pr. insane.^ 

Mr. Partridge, however, inherited and transmitted a well bal- 
anced mind. He had by wife Waitstill (Morse 7 ) 1. Ezekiel, 8 b.

*See the genealogy of different families of this race in Charlton, where 
nearly twenty suicides are said to have occurred in about twenty years, in a 
population of 1000 or 1200 ; and also the pedigree of incurable patients 
at the asylums and of others whose insanity or suicide is ascribed to other 
causes or deemed unaccountable. 

The insanity of that race is more than nine generations old. When 
crossed with certain families it is no further transmitted. For instance, 
among the descendants of Joseph Morse 2 of Medfleld, who have often inter- 
married with it I have not succeeded in detecting a single instance of 
hereditary insanity, until crossed a second time with that race. But it is 
otherwise with the race of his brother Daniel' of Sherborn, and the race of 
his Uncle Joseph of Ipswich. When crossed with these and certain other 
races, derangement reappears and is transmitted. Can Physiologists explain 
this, or show when the repairing principle will arrest the transmission, so long 
a-? marriages are contracted without attention to genealogy.

Abner Morse, Esq., the only son of his parents, like to have 
never been born ; and, as it was thought, never would have 
been had not his ambitious and often disappointed mother first 
trained her submission by naming a daughter Wait-still ; and 
had he not been born, there could never have been this other 
Abner, 30 years enceinte before the birth of the child the reader 
is now holding. To the overjoyed parents, his arrival must 
have been ominous of more than the perpetuity of the name ; 
but among all the rare consequences within the sweep of their 
excited imaginations, fancy could hardly have created such an 
anomalous birth as the memorial. But as strange effects often 
result from common causes, the reader will not infer that Abner 
Morse, Esq. was any thing more than a common child, brought 
up in a common way. At the age of sixteen, he was sent as a 
volunteer drummer into the army ; and the first office he ever 
held was to hold a spyglass for Washington to look through at 
the enemy ; and the second, to kindle that unfortunate fire on 
Dorchester Point (South Boston) at which the British directed 
a shot, killing three valuable officers, and barely missing him.^ 

* The author has often thought, in view of certain instrumentalities in 
the Church, that if the Devil had been the engineer, and possessed fore- 
knowledge, he would have levelled so as to have hit the boy also. 



APPENDIX. 



He remained in the army until the evacuation of Boston, and 
reentered it as a volunteer ior another campaign at Rhode Is and. 
Deprived of his father at an age of peculiar temptations, and 
exposed as he was in the army, where he served two or three 
campaigns, it was a wonder that he preserved good moral and 
industrious habits. He enjoyed no' literary advantages above 
those of the common district school; yet he made hhnself ac- 
quainted with surveying, military engineering, and became a 
neat and accurate draftsman, and was well acquainted with mu- 
nicipal law and the law of process. Among the multitude of 
causes that came before him as a magistrate in the space of 
lourteen years no decision given by him is known to have been 
reversed by a higher court. He had a ready dispatch of business, 
and was much employed in settling estates, and taking care of 
the bereaved and unfortunate. He was for twenty ye?rs a sort 
of stereotyped moderator of town and parish meetings, serving 
sixty-five times in that capacity. He represented Medway three 
years m the General Court, and served as selectman fourteen 
years, and repeatedly as grand juror, &c. He was commonly 
employed to look after the interest of the town in her foreign 
negotiations and disputes, and is allowed to have done more 
public business than any of her former citizens. He was natu- 
rally very excitable, mirthful, social, combative, and persever- 
ing. He had a clear and heavy voice, a ready flow of words, 
and, for one not early trained to public speaking, uncommon in- 
fluence in debate. He was appointed justice by Governor 
oulhvan, and reappointed by Governor Strong, and again by 
Governor Brooks and was an acting magistrate at the time of 
his death In early life, when military honors were yet prized, 
he held the commissions of captain and major of artillery He 
regularly attended on Orthodox preaching at Medway. W 'Parish 
until the removal of their house of worship, when he became an 
attendant at Holhston, where a common headstone marks his 
grave and that of his consort. He married Mille Leland, a wo- 
man ever beloved and honored in the relations of wife, mother 
neighbor, friend and Christian. Precious and admonitory be' 
her memory ! She was the dg. of Lt. Asaph Leland of Holl., 
(b Feb. 7, 1730, d. Aug. 7, 1812) and Beulah Littlefield (see p. 
41) ; and grd. dg. of Dea. Timothy L. of H, (b Feb 22 1684

Her grandfather, Dea. Timothy L., was one of the fathers of 
iioll. Before the meeting-house was built, he opened his spa- 
cious house for worship, one mile norlh of the centre of H., 
where the church was organized, and he chosen deacon. He 



APPENDIX. 



served H. as treasurer above twenty years, and as selectman 
thirteen years, and was much employed otherwise in promoting 
the interests of the town. No Leland before him, nor for fifty 
years after him, in this country, was so prominent or honored. 

Her grandmother Leland was a woman of piety and energy. 
Soon after her marriage, when she was but fifteen years and nine 
months old, Mr. L. being absent, a huge bear came into his 
cider-mill, near her open kitchen door. She seized his musket, 
slipped up stairs and loaded it, and had not bruin made good 
his retreat, she had doubtless proved a markswoman. She was 
the daughter of the excellent Dea. Benoni Learned (b. Dec. 4, 
1656, 1. and d. where Mrs. Doct. Wyth r. in Sh.) and Sarah 
More from Sudbury, and grd. dg. of " Isaac L. of Woburn, and 
Mary Stearns, dg of Isaac Stearns of Reading ; and pr. gr. grd. 
dg. of Wm. Learnett, who, with his wife Goodeth, was rec'd to 
the chh. in Charlestown, 1632, took the freeman's oath May 14, 
1634, signed a remonstrance respecting Mrs. Hutchinson, pro- 
nounced seditious, for which he made acknowledgments Nov. 
2, 1837. He was a proprietor of Woburn, where he died Apr. 
5, 1646." 

Mrs. Morse's great grandfather, Ebenezer Leland, settled in 
Sherbom where William Leland, senior, resides, where stood 
a garrison house built after Philip's war. He united with the 
church in Holliston, 1738, aged 81. Her great-great-grandfa- 
ther, Henry Leland, b. about 1620, d. 1680, and was received 
to the church in Dorchester, 1653, and one of the first planters 
of S. 1654. He was brought up a tailor, and, according to 
tradition, was of small stature and very amiable temper. Her 
gr. gr. gr. grandfather, Hopestill Leland, according to tradition, 
came from Yorkshire, Eng., clandestinely; landed at Wey- 
mouth with his son Henry, and pr. two or more daughters, 
about 1638, and was one to constitute the church which broke 
up in 1643, after Mr. Newman had preached to them four years. 
He was probably an itinerant tailor, and a man of eminent piety. 
He died in Medfield, 1654, aged 75.

" Rev. John Morse in early life gave himself to God and lived 
a life of unassuming piety till death." It was in the family and 
under the faithful ministry of Rev. John Leland of Peru, in 
the progress of a general "old fashioned" revival that he 
indulged hi? first hopes. Many others did so at the same

time, and to all human appearance lived like him a life of godli- 
ness controlled by affections not natural to man. Having tasted 
the blessedness of the Gospel, he desired to impart it to others ;^ 
and he made his way to the pulpit over obstacles which few, if 
any, at this day would attempt to surmount. " He graduated 
at the College in Providence, studied Theology with the venera- 
ble Dr. Emmons and the Rev. Mr. Sanford, who afterwards be- 
came his father-in-law. In 1792 he was ordained and settled 
over the Congregational Church at Green River, N. Y. Soon 
after his settlement he witnessed an interesting revival of religion, 
and his labors were crowned by the great Head of the Church. 
During his labors here for twenty-three years, he had many warm 
friends, and the Church were remarkably well united in him and 
looked upon him as a man of God ; a man possessing a discrimi- 
nating mind and sound judgment. During his residence at Green 
River, he labored some of the time as a missionary, in destitute 
places. In 1816 he moved to Otego, and became the Pastor of 
the Presbyterian Church in that place. Soon after his settlement 
the Spirit of the Lord was poured out and souls were given him 
as seals of his ministry." He continued his labors at Otego 
twelve years. His last sermon was on the occasion of President 
Harrison's death. His Theology was sound, of the New England 
stamp, which enabled him during the prevalence of the new 
measures for producing revivals to see the rock upon which the 
Churches were driving ; and, had his counsels been heeded, how 
many fatal shipwrecks would have been avoided ! He rejoiced 
to have the Holy Spirit honored in the work of regeneration and 
in the sanctification of believers, and in his last letter lo the au- 
thor, a few weeks before his death, he bewails the tendency of 
current errors to rob God of this honor. " He loved and preached 
the distinguishing doctrines of grace which supported him 
in his last sickness and death. As he approached the grave, 
his faith and enlire reliance on Christ and his atoning blood 
for salvation became stronger and stronger. Said he to Mr. 
James, who visited him in his last short illness, ' I am a great 
sinner, but O! the efficacy of Christ's blood to atone! It is 
sufficient. There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from 
ImmanuePs veins, &c. That is all my hope. The grave has 
no darkness, no gloom to me.' He was asked ' are you willing 
to die ?' ' O, yes ; I long to depart, that I may be with Christ. 
I am almost home.' To his daughter, the night "before his death, 
he said: ' It is not a dreadful thing to die.' During his short 
illness of four days, he enjoyed his mental faculties in a remark- 
able manner. Not a cloud came over his mind to darken his 
prospect beyond the grave. He appeared to wait with pleas- 

* About 1785 he held meetings for religious conference in Medway and 
Holl., at which commenced the first revivals in those towns. These, of 
which he was the acknowledged instrument, determined the character of 
several churches, which they retain to this dav.

ure till his change came. Seldom has one been found to have 
rested more implicitly on the Savior, or to have drawn richer 
consolations from that blessed Gospel which he had preached 
more than forty years to others. On Tuesday, 3 Jan., 1844, 
about 12 o'clock, P. M., without a struggle or a groan, he gently 
iell asleep in the arms of the Savior." « Mark the perfect man 
and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace."

5. Ebenezer Morse, 7 A. M., had original and splendid talents ; 
and had they been rightly directed, he might have made a man 
of the first order. But he was the only son of a wealthy, doting, 
and indulgent father, sent abroad with a plenty of money, at 16, 
to meet temptations. He read law at Worcester, declined the 
practice ; went upon the stage and soon won the reputation of 
being the first American actor. He appeared before the royal 

family, in London, in the character of- , and took the prize. 

He left the stage for a Chaplaincy in the American Navy, in the 
war of 1812, and when peace was restored he resigned it for a 
professorship in an Institution in N. C, where he read service 
on the Sabbath and was regarded as a clergyman. He died at 
the age of 40, at Providence, R. I., of a fever, leaving three 
daughters, neither of whom are supposed to be living, or known 
to have left children.

2. Elijah Morse, Esq. graduated with distinguished honors in 
his class, which has furnished such men as Rev. Dr. Ide of Med- 
ford, and Rev. Dr. Burgess of Dedham, and others advanta- 
giously known. He commenced the study of law with Judge 
Thatcher of Thomastown, Me., and finished with Timothy Big- 
elow of Boston, whose office and a share of its emoluments 
passed immediately into his hands on being admitted to the bar. 
He married the daughter of Dr. Jackson, M. D., Edinburgh, 
whose father was one of the aldermen of London, and passed 
his remaining days in Boston, in the practice of his profession, 
welcoming numerous acquaintances to the hospitalities of his 
house. He consented, at a sacrifice, to represent Boston one 
year in the General Court, but declined a second nomination. 
He was a member of the city council at the time of his death, 
and also one of the standing committee of the Bar, with Samuel 
Hubbard, W. D. Sohier, John Pickering, Charles G. Loring, 
John R. Adan, and James T. Austin. " When his death was re- 
ported, a special meeting of the Bar was held and a resolution 
adopted to testify their respect for him by attending his funeral. 
This being declined on behalf of his family, whereupon it was 
motioned by John Pickering, Esq., and voted that the Bar of 
Suffolk are deeply impressed with the lamented decease of their 
late brother, Elijah Morse, Esq. His urbanity of manners and 
active usefulness will be testified by all, while his zeal and fidel- 
ity to his clients will be appreciated by those who met with him 
in the walks of his profession. 

Voted, That the foregoing resolution be transmitted to his 
family as a testimonial of sincere sympathy in their loss of a 
father and a husband, who united the virtues of private to the 
energies of active life." 

Attest. Josiah Qtuncy.

Joseph P.* of Hingham, the br. of Rev. Robert, A. M., of do., 
(for whose history see Bloomfield's Topographical History of 
Norfolk, Eng., also Cotton Mather's Mag.) " Mr. Joseph P., 1. 
(25) 1645, and three others, while riding to Seaconk, where they 
were about to settle, sheltered themselves and their horses in an 
Indian wigwam, which, by some occasion took fire, and (al- 
though they were all four in it and laboured to their utmost &c.) 
burnt three of their horses to death, and all their goods, to the 
value of £50." He is named in Winthrop's journal. He was 
appointed by the Court of Plymouth, July 3, 1656, to solemnize 
marriages at Rehoboth, and with two others to hear and deter- 
mine all controversies there, "except the amount should exceed 
.£3." He died Jan. 12, 1662. In his will he gave his gold ring 
to his son Joseph ; to Samuel a silver baker and two silver spoons 
and one gold ring which had been his mother's ; to Nathl. his 
biggest silver cup, one gold ring and two silver spoons ; to Isra- 
el his silver salt and two silver spoons. He had a dg. 

Hubbut alias Hobart. Juda Marvin was the dg. of Dea. Re- 
nold Marvin of Lyme, and Betsey Kellogg, who d. at L. aged 
110 years, distinguished for the prompt disposal of her hand 
The story is this : — Dea. M., having lost his first wife some time 
previous, rode early one morning to her father's door, and with- 
out dismounting, knocked and inquired for Betsey. Promptly 
attentive, like other young ladies to the calls of single gentlemen, 
she was instantly at the door, not to receive a love letter, or a 
salutation in the form of good morning, but in the more wel- 
come form of " Betsey, it has been revealed to me that you are 
to become my wife." The will of the Lord be done ! exclaimed 
the damsel, with corresponding taste and congeniality of feel- 
ing, anticipating the reward of her submission in the richest hus- 
band in New London, Co. Whether the Deacon alighted to 
seal the engagement with a kiss, or put spurs to his horse and 
gallopped off to enter his bands before the will of the Lord 
should alter, tradition does not inform us. By the brevity of 
their courtship they saved time to serve their generation ; and it 
is needless to add that the marriage was a most happy one.

I dare not trust fraternal affection in delineating the character 
of this sister. That she had a clear conviction and deep sense 
of evangelical truth, and aimed to deal faithfully with her own 
heart, is evident from a diary kept by her, for no mortal eye but 
her own ; that she had talents for distinguished usefulness, which 
she had cultivated and consecrated to the noblest objects of fe- 
male pursuit, is the testimony of others ; and, had her life been 
spared to occupy the station in which Providence seemed about 
to place her, she would have proved no hindrance, it is believed, 
but a real helpmeet in the church. But she has ascended in 
triumphs # to serve in a higher station ; and who, I would ask, 
has received her mantle ? or does it now rest upon the ground ? 
If any of you, my kindred, for whom she fasted, and wept, and 
prayed will make your way in impenitence to the judgment 
seat, her prayers will then all turn against you, and the remem- 
brance of them plant daggers in your hearts for ever. But 
though dead, she yet speaks. Hear her, in the following 
lines, written on a hasty visit to the graves of our departed pa- 
rents, and the desolate family mansion, one week previous to 
her death, while in perfect health, and dropped with a sister for 
insertion upon her headstone, which she directed to be placed 
with her remains beside the grave of our ever honored mother, 
in the event of her never more visiting the place: — 

My morn was bright, my health was firm, 
And youthful flatteries strewed my way ; 
I seized each phantom as it came. 
And gave my life to pleasure's sway. 

* Rev. Dr. Beecher, senior, her pastor, who repeatedly visited her in her short 
sickness, which was a disease of the heart, and heard her honest eloquence, pro- 
nounced hers one of the most triumphant deaths which he had ever wit- 
nessed.

Yet ere the vision I had viewed, 
Or half the dangerous journey trod, 
A wise event the prospect closed, 
And led my wandering- soul to God. 
Through varied scenes of hopes, and fears, 
And tempting perils I have roamed ; 
The love of Christ hath soothed my tears, 
Almighty grace my soul hath saved. 
And now from such a world as this 
My Saviour calls me to depart ; 
My home is in the courts of bliss, 
Where I no more from God can part. 
Mourn not for me, my dying friends ; 
My tears are wiped, my pains are o'er ; 
Seek Jesus, ere your journey ends, 
That we may meet on heaven's blest shore.

6. Eunice Taft Morse married Oct. 7, 1841, Rev. John C. 
Smilh, missionary of A. B. C. F. M., died at Oodooville, Cey- 
lon, Ind., May 9, 1842, leaving a character that the race might 
contemplate with humility and gratitude ; and I cannot but 
deeply regret the lack of space and time to present this charac- 
ter in a form to instruct, encourage, admonish, and warn the 
present and future generations of the race. To do it justice, 
would require a little volume ; and such might ere this have 
been offered to the public, worthy of a place upon the same 
shelf with Harriet Newell and Fanny Woodbury, had not sim- 
ilar publications become so very common. Briefly, for ihe 
present, I would say that her mind, originally vigorous and sen- 
sitive, was early instructed in the doctrines of the Gospel, and 
guarded from contact with the glitter and dissipation of fashion- 
able life, until early religious impressions had ripened under the 
Spirit of God into a sound hope, and indifference to templa- 
tions from such a quarter. Her religious character assumed its 
form at once, and such a form as might have been hoped for in 
a genuine convert under the ministry of Rev. Horatio Bardwell, 
once a missionary in India. She received a part of her educa- 
tion at the Female Seminary in Ipswich, and devoted herself 
subsequently to teaching. Milford, Bellingham, Upton, and 
other places enjoyed her labors, and testimonials from her pu- 
pils and employers show how ardently she was loved, and with 
what patience and assiduity she discharged her trust. Her de- 
sire to aid and urge forward her pupils was too strong for her 
constitution. These efforts, in connection with mental applica- 
tion out of school, had undermined her health ere the early and 
strongest desire of her pious heart, to help evangelize the heath- 
en, could be gratified.

Hon. James K. Morse was blessed with pious parents. His 
father, when about to leave the world, manifested the greatest 
solicitude that this gifted son might preach the gospel, the im- 
portance of which he now more fully saw in the light of an 
opening eternity ; and he received assurances on his dying bed 
that allayed his anxiety. The son pursued his collegiate course 
and entered a school in Miss., with a view to the fulfilment of 
his promise. A change now came over him. The reasons are 
to us unknown. If they were the prospects of more usefulness, 
he must have misjudged ; if they were the evanescent honors of 
this world,^ may the sequel of his history warn others, of rare 
gifts and attainments, with the vows of God upon them, against 
allurements so vain and often so fatal. 

From Rev. Dr. Beecher of Boston. 

" Mr. James K. Morse was known to me as a student in Illinois 

College. Whilst under my care as President of that institution, he 

was a diligent and successful student. He graduated with honor 

to himself, and great hopes were entertained by his instructors that 

he would be eminently useful in the ministry, to which it was his 

purpose to devote himself. His mind was rapid in its operations 

and discriminating in its perceptions. His address was pleasant 

and conciliating. His rapid rise to eminence in the law — which he 

ultimately selected as his profession — shows what he mi»ht have 

done as a minister of the gospel. The suddenness with which his 

earthly hopes were blasted, evinces in a striking light the worthless- 

ness of all hopes that do not fix upon the eternal and imperishable 

honors of the kingdom of God. Though he has vanished like a 

dream from earth, faith follows his departing spirit to a brighter 

sphere. In that better world, may every one whose eye shall fall 

upon these lines prepare to meet him, and to dwell with God.

K. Morse, of Hernando, Miss., appeared in the Memphis ( Tenn.) 
Eagle, about Feb. 16, 1846. ' 

* The distinction he so early attained as a Lawyer and candidate for Gover- 
nor, (fading of an election by three votes only.) will not, when the splendor 
ot his address and talents are considered, convict him of unchristian ambi- 
tion or intrigue. On the contrary, he maintained a christian character, and 
was urged to accept the offices of Deacon and Elder in the Presbyterian 
church, with whom he regularly worshipped. He lost his life in conse- 
quence of having, as counsel, procured the acquittal of his client, accused of 
abducting Tyson's slaves.

APPENDIX. 

"Col. M., in company with Mr. Bedford Forest, was on his way 
to attend the Chancery Court at Holly Springs ; when riding 
along between Esq. McCarsons and Mr. Carruthers, he was 
met by Mr. James Dyson, of Marshall Co., who, with a double- 
barrel gun in his hand, accosted Col. M. thus : — 

"' You are the d d rascal that hired a man to swear a lie 

against me.' To which Col. M. answered in the negative. 

Dyson then called him ' a d d liar,' to which Col. M. replied, 

' you are the liar if you say I did so.' Whereupon D. shot him 
dead while sitting upon his horse, an ounce ball passing through 
his breast. When he fell, Mr. Forest alighted from his horse, 
and was in the act of raising Col. M.'s head from the ground, 
when D. told him to leave him or he would kill him in a min- 
ute. Forrest went on to Mr. Carruthers, and D. proceeded im- 
mediately to the Post Office, got some papers, and returned by 
the dead body of Col. M., by which a little boy was standing, 
and proceeded immediately to Holly Springs and employed a 
lawyer to defend him. 

" Mr. Forest despatched a runner to Hernando, when our ex- 
cellent sheriff, Col. James Murray, with eight or ten men, set off 
in pursuit of Dyson, to his plantation. A few moments after 
their arrival at his house, he returned from Holly Springs; they 
seized and secured him and brought him to our jail. The ex- 
citement against him is terrible ; if he escapes popular ven- 
geance, it will only be to be hung by the law, unless he effects 
his escape, which he need not hope. The body of Col. M. 
was hrought home and buried during ill-suppressed excitement 
against the murderer. But so soon as a large concourse left the 
grave, a general rush was made for the jail, lo hang up the mur- 
derer forthwith. But his poor, miserable, yet devoted wife was 
there, whose tears and anguish, and imploring pleas of mercy 
for her husband, were more than the enraged multitude could 
disregard, and they fell back, leaving the wretched and devoted 
wife alone with her husband. A meeting of the citizens will 
be held on Monday, and I have great fears ihe murderer will 
not be permitted to be tried by the laws. He is a most de- 
praved monster, and even now gloats in his boasting of having 
killed a man in Madison, Tenn., besides two negros. He de- 
serves the most infamous death known to the laws."*

Joseph Morse 1 of Ipswich, was probably one of the first of 
the name who settled in New England. The date of his arriv- 
al has not been preserved. He was probably among the early, 
but not the first proprietors and settlers of Ipswich, whose incor-

his conviction ; the second in his acquittal, at a cost of only $40,000 paid 
for his defence, and the consciences of a second pannel.

poration took place 1633 ; for it is evident from their records 
that he was acting as a commoner with them 28, (12,) 1642, and ihe 
extent of his improvements, four years later, indicate an earlier 
commencement, than '41. The destruction of their earliest records 
precludes the hope of discovering his relative standing in the 
community; but from the company in which he is found, the 
uncommon education in his family, and the references in his will 
to copies of precious religious books, it is inferred that he was a 
person of standing and piely ; and that by his prayers, and god- 
ly examples as well as by his sacrifices and enterprise, he has 
imposed everlasting obligations on his race, which, it is hoped, 
they will gratefully acknowledge in the erection of a monu- 
ment to his memory. His will is dated 24, (2,) 1646. In this 
he gave a dwelling house to his wife Dorolha, his new cloak to 
his son Joseph, his great Bible to Hannah, and other Bibles and 
religious books to his children. To John he gave " his other 
house, all his apparel, a yearling heifer and ihree improved lots 
of land," which John sold on removing to Groton, Jan. 4, 1663, 
for ;£80. The father's estate was inventoried 28, (7,) 1646. His 
elder son Joseph had settled at Watertown, and, as a proprietor, 
drew 120 acres in the division of lands in that town, in 1637. 

According to tradition, the evidence of early intercourse, and 
the identity of names given to their children, Joseph of Ipswich 
and Samuel, sen., of Dedham were brothers. Their father's 
name was probably John, of the West of England. 

Page 74, No. LXXIII. 

John Morse 2 took the freeman's oath, 1654, and " was accepted 
by the town of Groton to possess the alotlment of John Law- 
rence, jun., which he is presumed to have purchased of him." 
Morse had a " twelve acre right" in the Common lands of Grot- 
on which would have entitled him upon partition, to above 650 
acres, or more than one mile square. He was chosen Town 
Clerk from 1669 to the destruclion of the place, by the Indians, 
March 13, 1676, N. S., by which event he became a severe suf- 
ferer, as appears from his petition for relief, to the honorable 
Council at Boston, Aug. 17, ensuing; alleging " that he, an in- 
habitant of Groton, had by the calamity of the war, been de- 
prived of his estate and carried away captive by the enemy, and 
had not wherewith of his own to reimburse Mr. John Hubbard 
for the £5 paid down by him for his ransom." 

On the 12th of 10th mo., 1677, he united with other selectmen 
in warning a general meeting at Concord of the dispersed inhab- 
itants of G., and there subscribed, with eleven others, to the reso- 
lution — 

" That if the Providence of God prevent not by death or sickness 
or by the enemy, that then we will go up in the Spring following 
and begin to repair our habitations again if God permit, and for the 
true performance of this agreement we do engage the forfeiture of 



APPENDIX. 

our whole right in G. unto those that do go up and carry on the 
work." "He was rechosen clerk in '79 and '80, and served many 
years as selectman. He was an excellent Town clerk, and copied 
by the appointment of the selectmen the transcript of the several 
proprietors' lands into a new book making a volume. Upon the 1st 
page he wrote, 

' See that you set nothing in me, 

But what you can prove true to be.' " 

Three of his nephews, Jonathan, Joseph, and Jeremiah, became 
also proprietors of G., and Jonathan succeeded him as town clerk 
for five consecutive years, and served with him as selectman. 
John lived to endure the trials of the war of 1689, no less afflict- 
ing in alarms and the loss of life than the former had been, and 
died at Groton or Watertown in 1695, leaving a widow, Dina, 
but no sons to perpetuate his memory, and reap the rewards of 
his labors and sufferings.^

Rev. Wm, Morse, 8 a Unitarian clergyman known as the au- 
thor of several published discourses, has served as a stationed 
minister at Nantucket, Quincy, and Marlboro', prior to his set- 
tlement at Tewksbury. He was the first patron of this work.

Silvanus Morse, 8 A. M., is advantageously known as a teach- 
er. For years he was principal of the academy at East Brad- 
ford, but now keeps a select boarding school for lads, in a very 
accessible, yet retired and romantic location in West Boylston.

Died, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. A. G. Story, at 
Little Falls, Herkimer county, on the morning of Monday, the 
4th instant, the Hon. Jambs O. Morse, of Cherry Valley, first 
Judge of Otsego county Courts, in the 50th year of his age. 

In the death of Judge Morse, not only the immediate circle 
of his relatives and friends, but the whole community suffer a 
severe loss. Connected as he was with most of those institu- 
tions which have for their object the prosperity and good order 
of society, his loss is every where felt, and manifested in almost 
universal expressions of sympathy and regret. 

He was born at the Farm in Marlboro', Massachusetts, on the 
13th of February, 1788. When he was at the age of five years, 
his father left his native state, and removed with his family to 
Oneida county, N. Y. In the year 1804, he connected himself 
with the Hamilton Oneida Academy, (now Hamilton College,) 
then under the direction of the Rev. Robert Porter. He entered 
Union College in the year 1806, and received from that institu- 
tion the degree of A. B. in the year 1809. In the same year he 
commenced the study of the law, under the direction of the late 
Isaac Seelye, Esq., in the village of Cherry Valley, where he 
subsequently commenced the practice of his profession, and has 
since continued to reside. In the year 1812 he was married to 
Mary G. Phillips, daughter of the late Rev. Andrew Oliver, of 
Springfield. 

His intimate acquaintance not only with the general princi- 
ples, but also with the practical details of his profession, and the 
untiring zeal and energy with which he prosecuted the business 
entrusted to him, immediately placed him in a conspicuous posi- 
tion among his brethren at the bar. In his business he was 
remarkable for energy, perseverance and despatch. No obsta- 
cles would prevent, or even much retard the consummation of 



APPENDIX. 

his purposes. He possessed strong powers of discrimination, 
and exhibited in the conduct of his affairs singular forecast and 
sagacity. 

He was distinguished for great clearness and strength of in- 
tellect, and remarkable powers of memory. He seized almost 
intuitively the strong points of the subjects of his investigation, 
and presented his views to others with great energy and distinct- 
ness. To a clear and vigorous mind and a retentive memory, 
he brought the aids of untiring industry and indomitable perse- 
verance. He labored as long as strength lasted, and often be- 
yond his strength. In his public stations, he was distinguished 
for efficiency and promptitude. By diligent improvement of his 
time, he had amassed a vast amount of literary and scientific 
knowledge, all of which he endeavored to turn to practical 
account, and to make conducive to the public good. Indeed, he 
was indefatigable in the pursuit of general knowledge, and, con- 
sidering the constant attention which the practice of a loborious 
profession demanded, his attainments were unusually great ; 
perhaps few men of the present age have accumulated such 
large and diversified stores of miscellaneous knowledge. His 
information on almost every topic connected with the literature, 
science, religion, and politics of our own nation and of almost 
every other quarter of the globe, was seldom surpassed in its 
extent and variety. 

As a speaker, he was ready, clear, and convincing. He was a 
practised and useful public writer. To this fact, the pages of 
the Magazine bear ample testimony ; as many of the Reviews 
and other articles published in it are the productions of his pen. 
These papers were usually written with great rapidity, in mo- 
ments snatched from ihe busy cares and pressing dulies of a 
laborious public life. He contributed also frequently to other 
periodicals, and to several newspapers ; among oiher pieces he 
was the author of a valuable series of numbers on Political 
Economy, which appeared about a year ago in the Albany 
Argus.^ 

For the last ten years of his life he was the presiding Judicial 
Officer of the Otsego County Courts ; and we have the authority 
of the most eminent councellors in saying, that the important 
duties of his office were discharged with courteousness, prompt- 
ness, and great legal ability. His charges to juries, and his legal 
opinions are spoken of as characterised by rigid impartiality and 
profound legal research. 

About eighteen years ago he became a subject of regenerating 
grace, and connected himself with the Presbyterian Church 
in Cherry Valley, of which he was for nearly seventeen years 

* The obituaries of Mr. Oliver and his roost excellent lady, which 
appeared in religious periodicals soon after their deaths, present us with 
characters for most profitable contemplation, and exhibit Judge Morse, the 
author, as a writer of ability. I regret the want of opportunity to insert them. 



APPENDIX. 



one of the ruling elders. ; < His loss," says the Rev. Mr. Loc- 
head in his funeral discourse, from which the following is extract- 
ed, " will be long and deeply felt by this Church, for he ever 
proved himself to be one of its most active, consistent, and liber- 
al members. He had a warm and generous heart, a large and 
liberal mind, and was ever ready to promote by his influence, his 
purse, and his pen, every moral and philanthropic object, and 
every Christian and patriotic cause. He had an eye to pity, and 
a heart to feel for the woes of the human race. And his was 
not the pity of the sentimentalist, who can weep over the tale of 
distress, but who will not move a step, or lift a finger, or sacrifice 
a cent to relieve it. No ; never did our departed brother say to 
the naked, be ye clothed; to the hungry, be ye fed; to the igno- 
rant, be ye instructed ; or to the heathen, be ye evangelized; 
while he withheld from them the means of enjoying these com- 
forts and blessings. He had not only a feeling heart, but an 
open and a liberal hand. He seemed to act under the profession 
which, as a Christian, he had made, that he was but the steward 
of God, and the almoner of his bounty to a suffering world and 
a struggling church; remembering the words of his Saviour: — 
" Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my 
brethren, ye have done unto me." Hence the cause of Christ, 
both at home and abroad, found in him one of its most generous 
friends. He was one of the strongest pillars of the church, and 
one of the most liberal contributors to every benevolent object, 
and every Christian enterprise. He was peculiarly and deeply 
interested in the cause of missions. He watched the progress 
of evangelical religion, both in nominally Christian and in hea- 
then lands. Hence the minute and particular knowledge which 
he had of the moral and religious character of almost every peo- 
ple and nation on the face of the globe. He was, in the best of 
senses, a citizen of the world. He looked upon man, and felt 
for him, to whatever people or nation he belonged, as a brother 
and an heir of immortality. He was therefore the munificent 
patron of the Bible, Missionary, Tract, and Education Societies, 
which are directly engaged in the blessed and glorious work of 
enlightening the dark places of the earth, of evangelizing the 
benighted heathen, and of sanctifying and saving the perishing 
sons of men in whatever country or clime they may be found. 
Hence, too, on the first Monday of every month you might cal- 
culate on meeting him at the monthly concert of prayer, when 
his liberal alms and fervent prayers were offered, and, we have 
reason to believe, ascended up to the God of Missions, as a me- 
morial of his ardent and enlightened zeal for the glory of God, 
and the best interests of men, in the universal extension of the 
Redeemer's kingdom. It is worthy of remark here, as an evi- 
dence of his interest in the cause of Missions, that last winter, 
during the sitting of the County Court at Cooperstown, on the 
evening of the first Monday of February, he adjourned the 



APPENDIX. 

Court and invited his associates, and the members of the bar 
and others present, to attend the monthly concert. The place of 
meeting was crowded ; and he delivered a very interesting dis- 
course on the subject of Missions, in which he evinced his 
thorough knowledge of the operations of the church, and of the 
moral state of the various nations of the earth, and exhibited 
the true spirit of the gospel of Christ. 

" As auxiliary to religion, he was the munificent patron of 
learning and the arts. He was the warm, steady, and enlightened 
friend of popular education. Indeed, among the last, if not 
the very last public act of his life, was consecrated to this impor- 
tant cause. He attended a convention of the friends of popular 
education at Cooperstown on the 14th of November, when he 
assisted in forming a county society for the improvement of 
Common Schools, and supported with his accustomed eloquence 
and zeal the judicious resolutions which were then passed. He 
had also prepared two excellent lectures on this subject, and de- 
livered them in some of the towns of the county. 

" It were vain to particularize the various objects of benevo- 
lence which found a place in his large heart, and efficient aid 
from his enlightened mind and liberal hand ; for, as it has been 
justly said, ' the chord of sympathy for suffering of every kind 
found an answering vibration in his bosom.' Hence another 
trait of his benevolence. Like the stream from the living and 
overflowing fountain, it was spontaneous, full, and free. His 
deeds of benevolence, his acts of generosity, and his liberal con- 
tributions, were the natural and spontaneous expressions of the 
noble and generous sympathies of his heart. Believing the say- 
ing of the Lord Jesus, that it was more blessed to give than to 
receive, he esteemed it his privilege, and he felt it to be his hap- 
piness to give. He took great delight in aiding promising young 
men in obtaining an education for a profession. There are many 
men, now usefully employed in the ministry, at the bar, and in 
other pursuits, who are greatly indebted to him in this respect, 
and who gratefully attribute their present standing and success 
in their several vocations, to his kindness, and counsel, and sea- 
sonable aid. 

" The wisdom that is from above, says the apostle James, is 
pure, peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and 
good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Those 
who knew him intimately can testify that these were the promi- 
nent characteristics of his heart and life. No better testimony 
need be borne to the purity of his heart and life, than that of a 
gentleman who attended him during the last two or three days 
and aghts of his life. Then, when the strength of disease had 
overthrown reason, and his actions and expressions were the act- 
ings out of his prevailing habits of thought and feeling, unguard- 
ed and unrestrained by any prudential motives, and the mask, if 
he ever wore one, was thrown off, and the real man appeared — 

ap. 10s. 



APPENDIX. 



then, amid the vagaries of his disturbed imagination, however dis- 
jointed and strange, all was perfectly pure and proper ; such as 
the most delicate eye and ear might witness and hear, betoken- 
ing a pure heart, a chaste conversation, and a stainless life. 

" All who had the happiness of an intimate acquaintance with 
the deceased, knew him to be peaceable, gentle, easy to be en- 
treated, as well as full of mercy and good fruits. Some have 
thought that he cultivated these virtues even to a fault. He was 
eminently meek, gentle, peaceable, long-suffering and forbearing. 
No man can be so much in public and political life as he was, 
and in such times as these, without having his motives impugned, 
his actions misrepresented, and his character slandered. This 
was occasionally his lot, but never did I hear him retaliate in the 
least, or even hint at his grievances ; but when the malice or in- 
justice of his slandrers was ever mentioned in his presence, he 
was ever ready to frame some apology for his enemies, to express 
his forgiveness, and to turn the attenlion of himself and those 
around him from such disagreeable subjects by introducing some 
new and interesting topics of conversation. 

" Though as a Christian, his faith was shown by his works, 
and his union to Christ was manifested by the fruits of righteous- 
ness and peace which he brought forth, he was deeply sensible 
of his unworthiness in the sight of spotless purity ; and all his 
hopes of acceptance with God, and of a happy immortality, 
were founded solely on the merits of his Redeemer. After all 
the works of faith, and labors of love, and deeds of benevolence 
which he performed, he felt that he was an unprofitable servant ; 
and that if judged by his works only, he would have no hope of 
acceptance with God ; and his desire was to be found in Christ, 
not having his own righteousness which is of the law ; but hav- 
ing that righteousness which is of God by faith. His desire 
was to live in the Lord, and to die in the Lord ; we have reason 
to hope that the blessedness of such is now his ; that he has rest- 
ed from his labors, and that his works have followed him." 

" In all the various relations of life which Judge Morse sustain- 
ed, public, ecclesiastical, social, and domestic, he was most exem- 
plary. He was a learned and upright Judge, an affectionate 
husband, a tender and indulgent father, a humble and fervent 
Christian, a generous and devoted friend, a public-spirited 
citizen, and an active, enterprising and extensively useful man. 

M His death was not less sudden and unexpected, than it was 
afflictive. He left home on the 22d of November, to transact some 
professional business in Montgomery County. He was arrested 
on his way by an attack of typhus fever, which deprived him of 
his reason and baffled all human efforts. He was carried from 
Fonda to the residence of his son-in-law, at Little Falls, where 
he received every aid and attention that medical skill, affection, 
and friendship could bestow ; — but all in vain. On Saturday, 
the 2d of December, he appeared to recognise those who ad- 



APPENDIX. 

dressed him, and would answer their questions when aroused ; 
and we have reason to believe that he was then sensible of his 
low state, from the fact that in the afternoon, during a short lucid 
interval, he offered a coherent, appropriate, and most fervent and 
affecting prayer, and relapsed immediately into a state of stupor. 
On Sabbath morning, he endeavored to sing a line or two of a 
hymn, and was observed by those around him to be apparently 
engaged in calling upon the Lord. In the evening he seemed 
to be fast sinking into the arms of death. His family and friends 
being anxious to know the state of his mind at this crisis, his af- 
flicted wife aroused him, and asked him if he found Christ to be 
precious to him now ; he raised both his hands, and with great 
animation answered : ' Yes that indeed I do /' She again 
asked him, ' Do you put your trust in him ? ' He fervently re- 
plied, 'Yes, Yes.' These were the last words he uttered. He 
continued fast failing until 4 o'clock the next morning, when, 
without a groan or a struggle, he peacefully expired. 

" He left an aged mother, an afflicted widow, three sons and 
two daughters to lament his loss. His remains were carried to 
Cherry Valley, and there interred.

The General Court early granted Doct. John Alcock, of Rox- 
bury, a farm of 1,000 acres at Assabath River, which had been 
laid out and settled as early as 1657 ; for by virtue of a grant 
in May of that year to John How and company of Sud. for a 
plantation at Whipsufferage, (Marlboro') they immediately laid 
claim to meadows included in Alcock's grant, and mowed them, 
which occasioned altercation. To settle the dispute A. agreed 
to relinquish 200 acres to them in case the General Court should 
confirm the plantation laid out to them, and they settle a town 
there and agree with the Indians; and they agreed to bind them- 
selves, &c, in the sum of £300 not to interfere or prevent him or 
his from quietly enjoying all the remainder of his grant. This 
agreement was entered into July 27,1657, A. having in the May 
preceding procured from the Court a confirmation of the grant 
previously made him, proceeded to strengthen his title by ob- 
taining the next day the following deed from the Indians. 

" Know all men to whom these presents shall come, that we 
Peter, Josias Hoddin, and Solomon, inhabitants of the Indian 
town of Whipsufferage, have for divers causes and considera- 
tions us moving thereunto in the name of Annamaed, Nusquas 
and the rest of the inhabitants of the said town of Whipsufferage 
freely and fully granted unto John Alcock (Physician) of Rox- 
bury, power to take possession of all that land formerly granted 
by the General Court, and confirmed by the General Court May 
1657, unto the said John, his heirs, executors and assigns forever,

Another deed to Doct. A., of the farm, probably of later date, 
is said to exist, signed by twenty-five Indians. The same num- 
ber and probably the tame Indians who subscribed at Natick, a 
deed for Marlboro' for £31. The farm was not annexed to 
Marlboro' until the 18th century. 

Doct. Alcock (now Alcott) belonged to the nobility of the col- 
ony ; and, as was then their custom, improved the Farm as a kind 
of manor. He is presumed to have built the splendid house, for 
those days, which stood one hundred and fifty years on the spot 
now occupied by the mansion of Stephen Morse, Esq., and which, 
defended by a neighboring garrison, escaped the torch of ihe ene- 
my often seen skulking about during the 2nd or 3d Indian war. 
Hither Doct. Alcock and his family occasionally relreated, it 
is believed, until his wife and daughters had contracted such 
an attachment that she interfered with her husband in mak- 
ing his will, requesting or demanding that her daughters should 
have their whole portion in the farm. The Doctor accord- 
ingly, in 1666, left " the Farm of 1000 acres, at Assabath River, 
with stock and utensils," to Anna, Sarah, and Mary, who, in 
1670, were the wives of John Williams of Boston, (probably of 
the firm of Morse & Williams,) Zack. Whilman of Hull, and 
Joshua Lamb of Roxbury. In 1690, John Alcock, iheir brother, 
deceased, possessed of one sixth of the farm, then appraised at 
£30. The Heirs of Doct. Alcock and of his son John, in '91-2, 
are presumed to have sold a part, or all of their shares to Jo- 
seph and Samuel Morse, whose patrimony must have been ad- 
equate to the purchase. Joseph settled in the house built by Al- 
cock ; Samuel built a little distance W. S. W., and their junior 
brother Jonathan afterwards bought and settled on a tract ad- 
joining to the farm, and built at a short distance west of Sam- 
uel, so that one garrison might protect their three families. Their 
removal transfered the seat of the family from Watertown, and 
from that day to the present, the plantation of Stephen Morse, 
Esq., with the adjacent Morse Cemetery in Marlboro', has been 
the geographical centre of the race of Joseph 1 ; it now offers an 
inviting spot for a monument to his memory.

land,) who was one of the earliest proprietors and settlers of the 
town of Sudbury. He took the freeman's oath May 13, 1640, 
and was Selectman and Marshall in 1642. He was one of the 
thirteen inhabitants of said town who petitioned for a tract of 
land, eight miles square, for the town of Marlboro', in 1656. He 
was a proprietor of Marlboro', and, according to tradition, the first 
English person who came to reside in the town. He lived near 
the Indian planting field, conciliating, by his great prudence and 
kindness, his savage neighbors, and enjoying their highest re- 
spect and confidence, being made their umpire in all their diffi- 
culties. In 1661 he was licensed to keep a house of entertain- 
ment, and kept the same when there were but two houses be- 
tween his tavern and Worcester. His descendants occupied the 
same place for many generations. He died about 1686, (his 
will was proved June 19, 1689,) and had by his wife Mary, 
(who died about 1698,) twelve children, born between 1641 and 
1663, ten sons and two daughters, of whom the second son, 
Samuel, born Oct. 20, 1642, married Martha Bent, in 1663, and 
had, in Sudbury, before 1675, seven children, of whom the 
seventh, David, born Nov. 2, 1674, married Hephzibah Death, in 
1700, and kept the " How Tavern," at Sudbury, which has been 
continued by his descendants of the same name, upon the same 
spot, uninterruptedly to the the present time ; ihe same being 
now owned and kept by Lyman How, Esq. He had six chil- 
dren between 1702 and 1721, of whom David, the fifth, born 
1717, married Abigail Hubbard, # March 1C, 1743, or 2, and had 
ten children, Bulkely, Persis, Peter, Abigail, Joseph, Israel, Al- 
ice, David, Rebecca, (married Stephen Morse,) and Lucy. 

The descendants of John How, now living at Marlboro' and 
other towns in the vicinity, are very numerous. They sustain 
generally, as is believed, a reputalion which reflects no dishonor 
upon their ancestry, many of whom were distinguished as lead- 

* Abigail Hubbard was the daughter of Joseph Hubbard and Rebecca 
Bulkely, and granddaughter of Jonathan Hubbard and Rebecca Brown, 
both of Concord, married Sept. 26, 1704; and great-granddaughter of John 
Hubbard, whose relation to the enemy enabled him, in 1676, to redeem 
John Morse from captivity. John H. was very probably the nephew or 
brother of Rev. Wm. H., the historian, the son of Mr. Win. H, who removed 
from Ipswich to Boston, 1662. Rebecca Bulkely was the daughter of Joseph 
Bulkely, who married Hannah Merriam, (daughter of Joseph Merriam, and 
granddaughter of Joseph Merriam,) and through this line, from Thomas 
Stow and Grace Chitwood, daughter of Sir Richard Chitwood. 

Joseph Bulkely was the son of Peter Bulkely, and grandson of Peter 
Bulkely, and great-grandson of Rev. Edward Bulkely, D^ D., (who married 
Olive Irlby,) and great-great-grandson of Thomas Bulkely and Elizabeth 
Grovener; and great-great-great-grandson of William Bulkely, and of the 
6th generation from Humphrey Bulkelv, and the 7th from Hugh Bulkely, 
and the 8th do. from John Bulkely and Andryne Colley, (daughter of John 
Colley and Nicholaus* 1 Bird.) and the 9th do. from Peter Bulkely, and the 
10th. from Robert Bulkely, and the 11th, from William Bulkelv, and the

Anthony came from Marlborough, England, and, like Samuel 
of Dedham, belonged to that class of Purilans who strove to 
separate from the corruptions of the established church while 
they continued in her ; and the date of his separation syn- 
eronizes with that of his embarkation for New England, 1635. 
Few materials are supplied, either by records or tradition, illus- 
trative of his history. That he was a man of moral courage, 
energy, and perseverance ; that he was enterprising and capable 
in business, and laid the foundation of the competence and 
wealth of his family ; that he was called to public trusts of civil 
and sacred character ; that he reared pious and distinguished 
children ; led a long life of strict integrity and humble piety, 
fearing God and loving his people, no one can doubt who at- 
tends to the records of the community in which he lived and 
died. The character of his descendants is an eulogium upon 
his piety. So generally inclined to a godly walk were the five 
first generations of his race, that it was loosely but proverbially 
said in reference to them, that it was as natural for the Morses 
to be religious as for certain other families to be vicious ! And 
I have met with many ; I am confident there are many hun- 
dreds of his race now living and rejoicing in hopes, whose spir- 
itual lineage, as certain as their natural, can be traced to him 
without a break of one generation. But alarmingly different 
have I found it in tracing certain families of other names, living 
in the midst of evangelical churches, and hearing the same doc- 
trines, who for five generations at least have not afforded a sin- 
gle instance of piety or even profession of it! 

Anthony, senior, settled about half a mile S. of the most an- 
cient cemetery in Newbury (Old Town), on a slight eminence 
in a field now owned by Michael Little, and still called the 
Morse Field, where the trace of his house, a few rods from the 
road, is yet perfectly visible, affording a beautiful spot for a 
monument to his memory.

Rev. James Morss, D. D., of Newburyport, was not unknown 
to the author, while serving as stated supply for several months 
to the 2nd Presbyterian Church in Newburyport, in 1819. The 



APPENDIX. 

acquaintance then commenced inspired the highest esteem ; 
and I delight to record his high character in the following ex- 
tract from a sermon preached at his interment by Rev. Chas. 
Burroughs, D. D., of Portsmouth : — 

" His story is brief. There are not circumstances about it to give 
it romance. One feature in it, however, was very bright and perfect. 
It was the feature, or rather the grace of godliness, which irradiated 
the whole path of his pilgrimage, and rendered him, in that res- 
pect, ' a burning and a shining light.' Descended from respectable 
and pious parents, he was born in Newburyport, October the 25th, 
in the year 1779. His early tuition was at your public schools, 
where he was distinguishsd for industry, gentleness, purity, love of 
truth, and kindness of heart. After receiving the common rudi- 
ments of education, he was apprenticed to his father, at quite an 
early age, as a joiner. But God had other work for him to do. He 
had not been long engaged in his mechanical pursuits when an 
accident occurred that altered the destination of his life. He fell 
on the ice and broke his wrist. The apparent misfortune led him 
to relinquish his profession for the more congenial pursuit of intel- 
lectual culture, which carried him with high merit, through his col- 
legiate course at Cambridge, to the momentous office of the minis- 
try. How little do we understand or reason upon the movements 
of Providence. How often does God render disappointments our 
greatest mercies, and send them as the most effectual agents of his 
love There is an infinitely kind hand that constantly orders our 
footsteps; that often frustrates human plans, and our obstinate, 
blind wills ; and, for our ultimate good and his own glory, decides 
our lot. That divine interposition, by a peculiar voice, changed a 
parent's will, and made our departed brother a ' faithful minister of 
Christ.' In his seventeenth year he entered Harvard College, 
where he held a high literary reputation in his class, which con- 
tained many excellent scholars. Some of them rank among our 
most eminent men in theology, jurisprudence, science, and the arts. 
Among the departed of that class, we mention with enthusiasm 
the classical and eloquent Buckminster, one of the most delightful 
of men and of preachers ; among the living, are the distinguished 
Chief-Justice of this Commonwealth, several clergymen of great 
learning and piety, and also an artist, who in his profession is per- 
haps inferior to none in his own country, and to few in any other. 
Yet amidst so many bright scholars, our departed brother was 
graduated in the year 1800, with a fair fame and high standing; 
and he acquitted himself in the public exercise that was then 
assigned to him with great credit. Soon after leaving college he 
determined to devote himself to the pastoral profession. Though 
his early education was not among Episcopalians, yet, at the com- 
mencement of his theological studies, there were various circum- 
stances that disposed his mind favorably towards the Episcopal 
Church. He examined diligently and impartially its doctrines and 
polity, and placed himself as a student under the instruction and 
counsel of the venerable and amiable Dr. Bass, then Bishop of 
Massachusetts. At that time little was the Episcopal Church 
known ; strong were the prejudices against it. So feeble was its 
condition, that it. had only sixteen ministers in the five States that 

AP. lis. 



APPENDIX. 

afterwards composed the Eastern diocese. Notwithstanding all 
these discouraging circumstances, our departed brother attached 
himself to our ecclesiastical polity with great firmness and ardor. 
He received Deacon's orders on the 3d day of July, in the year 
1803, from the Rt. Rev. Bishop Bass, and officiated as his assistant 
in the Church where we are assembled, until the death of that be- 
loved prelate, an event which occurred on the 10th of September, 
in the year 1803. In the ensuing month of November he was in- 
vited to become the rector of this church, and entered immediately 
on the duties of his office. On the 11th of June, in the year 1804, 
he was admitted to Priest's orders in the Church Du Saint Esprit, 
in the city of New York, by the Rt. Rev. Benjamin Moore, Bishop 
of the diocese of New York. For almost thirty-nine years, he has 
been your faithful minister of Christ. Melancholy have been the 
changes among those who were officiating in the States of the 
Eastern diocese when he was ordained. Almost all of them are 
dead. Only two continue to reside in the diocese. One is our 
venerable Bishop; the other is the only Episcopal clergyman in 
these Eastern States that has been continued a Rector of the same 
church longer than our deceased brother. That aged presbyter is 
the Rev. Mr. Fowle, who has been more than fifty years connected 
with the church in Holderness, N. H. Your beloved pastor was 
honored with a doctorate in divinity by the College of New Jersey, 
at Princeton, in the year 1826, at the annual commencement of that 
institution. During the long course of his ministry he has enjoyed 
an unusual portion of health ; he has been constant in attendance 
on all his duties, and deeply interested in the temporal as well as 
spiritual welfare of his flock. He has experienced many trials, and 
has always exhibited under them great Christian firmness, submis- 
sion, and improvement. It was not his sad lot to have any trials 
touching his pastoral union. There perhaps never was a happier 
sacerdotal connection than that which subsisted between him and 
his church. But it is the immutable law of God, that the closest 
and most tender union shall be dissolved. For several weeks past, 
our departed brother has suffered from a severe cold, so that he 
discharged his duties with much labor and inconvenience. He was 
unwilling to show himself any favor, or in any way to relax his 
services. A few days since, he was suddenly attacked with a vio- 
lent disease, attended with many alarming symptoms, that seemed 
the sad precursors of death. He met the disorder with great calm- 
ness and submission ; but it filled his family, parishioners, and all 
who heard of it, with consternation and sorrow. Their fears were 
realized, for it proved his last sickness. It was brief. You know 
with what faithfulness, interest, and emotion he attended, though 
feeble, to all the services of his church during the affecting season 
of Passion Week. You doubtless remember the touching senti- 
ments and admonitions of his last discourse, which was a funeral 
sermon, preached about three weeks since, on the first Sunday after 
Easter. It seems to have been the precursor of his own decease, 
and ought to have left a deep, salutary, and permanent impression 
on his hearers. It was only a week since that his indisposition 
assumed a dangerous form. It was my privilege to pass last Sat- 
urday with him. He was very feeble, so that it was thought inex- 
pedient to propose to him the reception of the communion. While 



APPENDIX. 

sitting at his bedside, he solicited me to read the office for the vis- 
itation of the sick. Taking the prayer-book, though contrary to 
the advice of those around him, he engaged earnestly in the ser- 
vice, and in tones firm and fervent, he made the responses. At the 
conclusion of the service, he said, ' This comprehends all that I 
could desire; it meets my wishes and feelings.' With great hu- 
mility he confessed his conviction that he had fallen far short of 
his duty. I remarked that our justification was only by faith in the 
merits of Jesus Christ as ' a full, perfect, and sufficient oblation 
and satisfaction for the sins of the whole world.' He cordially as- 
sented to my views, and expressed great feeling and satisfaction at 
them. His mind was perfectly calm ; and he gave assurance in all 
his sufferings in the course of that affecting day, when we were 
thus permitted to meet together, that he was indeed a godly man. 
Nor was it on that day only that he afforded such testimony ; for it 
was conspicuous and powerful in all his life. It was not my privi- 
lege to see him again. On Tuesday morning last, about one 
o'clock, when no one was with him but his faithful and affectionate 
friend, one of his wardens, who was his watcher, he suddenly, and 
without any warning o>- struggle, expired. A disorder of the heart, 
attended with some other functionary derangement of the system, 
seemed the probable cause of his dissolution. 

" Even until he finished his course, he kept the faith. Awful as 
was the blow that thus numbered him with the dead, still we can- 
not fail to adore the divine mercy that spared him from the visita- 
tion of a long and distressing sickness, and from an infirm and 
afflicted old age. The dread summons for his departure found him 
ready, with ' his loins girt, his lamp trimmed and burning.' The 
certainty and nearness of death, and the duty of preparing to 
meet his Judge at the last great day, were topics familiar to his 
mind, which he deeply felt and faithfully preached. It is a singu- 
lar fact, that the last sermon which he wrote, but which he was not 
spared to preach, was on these striking words, ' Verily, verily, I say 
unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear 
the voice of the Son of God ; and they shall hear and live.' How 
affecting is this text, which our departed brother chose as his last 
theme. How prophetically it seemed to be a warning of his own 
decease ; how clearly it told, not only that the hour was com- 
ing, but that it then was ; that it had actually come to him ; 
that he was on the verge of the eternal world, when he should 
hear the voice of the Son of God and should indeed live. How 
appropriate was the subject for the closing meditations of his min- 
istry ! How much better would it have been for me to have taken 
that discourse for the present occasion ; it would be vastly more 
appropriate and affecting than any thing that I can say. It would 
be the pathetic persuasion of lips that are sealed in death. It 
would be the most fitting instruction and resistless eloquence for 
this solemn hour. Death found him a godly man. You all know 
that he was so. His discourses, full of sound doctrine, earnest ex- 
hortation, and impressive language ; his benignant expression of 
features ; his natural, easy, and devotional manner of reading the 
Church service ; his tenderness and feeling in administering the 
Communion; his affectionate and spiritual demeanor in his inter- 
course with the sick and afflicted : all these bear witness that he 



APPENDIX. 

was a godly man. As such he lived, and as such he died. He 
practised what he preached ; he felt what he uttered ; and he al- 
ways endeavoured to act, with the aids of divine grace, so as to 
make himself a godly man. 

" He was a godly minister of Christ. He was learned in the Scrip- 
tures, and he elaborately searched them with humility and prayer. 
He was sound in ' the faith once delivered to the saints.' He was 
an able defender of the Trinity, justification by faith, the necessity 
of conversion, repentance, and a holy life, the doctrines of grace 
and of salvation by the alone merits of the atoning blood of Jesus 
Christ, as our Redeemer. He was a true and thorough Church- 
man, learned in ecclesiastical polity, and faithful in the observance 
of our rites and discipline. His was a pure and reasonable service, 
free from fanaticism and bigotry. He was an able and scriptural 
preacher; for he made the word of God his text-book, and not the 
philosophical works of man. His manner of preaching was sim- 
ple, impressive, and beautiful ; he was ever seeking to ' speak the 
truth in love.' His whole heart was engaged in the spiritual im- 
provement of his flock, and he had no other ambition or desires. 
Rightly did he 'divide the word of truth;' and the food that he 
gave to his hearers was the heavenly manna. His theme was con- 
stantly ' Christ crucified.' The great doctrine of the atonement 
was never i bsent from his discourses. He was interested in the 
spiritual nurture of the young ; loved most affectionately the chil- 
dren of his Sunday School, considered it as one of his most valua- 
ble fields of duty, and not only gave it his prayers, wishes, and 
patronage, but his faithful and unwearied personal services. He 
was a man of prayer, and lived very much in intercourse with his 
God ; and we have every reason to say that he was indeed a godly 
minister of Christ. 

" A spirit of godliness was evinced in all his moral traits. Not- 
withstanding his learning, talents, acquirements, influence, and dis- 
tincton, he was eminent for humility. The estimate that he formed 
of his own abilities and worth was very far below that which was 
formed of him by those who best knew him. There was a delicate, 
shrinking, retiring manner about him, which ever touched our sensi- 
bility and conciliated our tender regard. He was full of philanthro- 
py and disinterestedness. He thought at all times of others, and 
not of himself; and he often suffered great personal sacrifice from 
his too ready and active generosity. He was also full of sympathy, 
and the feelings of the poor and afflicted took full possession of his 
soul, so that he was unhappy till he had done all in his power to 
relieve them. Never was a fonder parent, a more faithful hus- 
band, or a more true friend; and his gentleness and kindness were 
as bright and constant at home, as they were in his social inter- 
course with his parishioners, or amidst his devotions and preaching 
in this house of prayer. He had great personal firmness, decision 
and enerorv, however, wherever any exigency demanded them. 
His hand was as open as his heart in melting charity. His tongue 
was the law of truth as well as of goodness; and every one re- 
vered him for his scrupulous veracity. That he was a constant, 
genuine, precious and disinterested friend, I have the fullest con- 
viction from experience. For more than thirty years I have known, 
felt, and esteemed his friendship as one of my richest blessings. 



APPENDIX. 

He had a delightful spirit of submission. His trials caused him 
neither murmuring nor despondency ; but only served to awaken a 
stronger confidence in his (rod. To what ever vicissitudes, vexa- 
tions, or embarrassments he might be exposed, yet he ever evinced 
under them the most perfect equanimity of temper. He was true 
and just in all his dealings. He never said or did any thing inten- 
tionally to wound another's feelings. He was courteous and affec- 
tionate, and secured an universal popularity. He was a most valu- 
able and efficient member of society. He warmly patronized all 
the institutions established for the public good. The cause of 
learning and education was very dear to him. He did all that was 
in his power to sustain, elevate, and improve your schools, lyceums, 
and philanthropic societies. He was a beautiful living example of 
virtue. He moved in his various duties with such constant and 
striking excellence before your eyes, as to cause virtue to be ad- 
mired ; and he so constantly diffused its graces over your hearts, 
as to cause it to be loved. Though firm in his belief of the essen- 
tial importance of the doctrines and discipline of the Episcopal 
church, and though devoted to them with the warmest affections of 
his heart, yet he betrayed no intolerance or uncharitableness in his 
opinions towards those who differed from him. He mingled amongst 
all classes and denominations of men as a brother; and fastened to 
him all who knew him, by his bright, warm chain of tender Chris- 
tian sympathy. Surely he was a godly man. 

" Did time allow us, we might dwell very long on his other ex- 
cellencies of heart and life. We might speak of his merits as a 
scholar; of his ability as a writer; and of the numerous and val- 
uable articles which, through the press, he has given to the public, 
for the benefit of learning, religion, and virtue. Those able pro- 
ductions are before the world. We might tell of his high standing 
in the Church ; of the ecclesiastical offices that have been conferred 
on him ; of the ability with which he has discharged them ; and of 
his weighty influence in our ecclesiastical councils. We might 
praise his merits as a public speaker, where he was successful in 
the exhibition of just and enlightened sentiments, graceful delivery, 
and classical diction. We might commend his dignified demeanor, 
benevolent features, and attractive courtesy. We might dwell 
upon the good that he has done in the Church ; of his spiritual la- 
bors and triumphs among his own flock ; and of his acceptableness, 
wherever he went, as a gentleman and a companion, as a Christian 
and a preacher."

Hon. Charles Morse of Wilton, Me., removed from Sutton to 
Maine, a poor boy of 15, without hardly the advantages of a com- 
mon school education. In 1809, he settled in Wilton, where he 
resided until death. 

In early life, he suffered the vicissitudes and deprivations not 
unusual in a newly settled country ; but by his perseverance and 
integrity, he succeeded in acquiring the confidence and esteem 
of the community, and became a highly esteemed and influen- 
tial citizen of Wilton ; enjoying that popularity which is not 
sought after, but which follows from a just appreciation of mor- 



APPENDIX. 



al ana intellectual worth, directed by a sound and discriminating 
judgment, and that practical wisdom ealled common sense. 
Hence his counsel was sought after by his neighbors in their in- 
dividual concerns, by the town in the management of its muni- 
cipal affairs, by the militia as its commander, and by his fellow- 
citizens as a senator and representative in the State Legislature. 
In all these situations he acquitted himself with honor. In his 
deportment he was modest and courteous. In his habits he 
was temperate, industrious, and frugal, that his hospitality might 
be the more extended. His benevolence and sympathy embraced 
all the sons and daughters of affliction without distinction of 
sect, clime or color. The sick, the dying, and the mourning were 
the peculiar objects of his solicitude; and more frequently than 
any other man whom the writer has ever known, did Col. Morse, 
while his own health permitted, watch by the sick-bed of his 
neighbors, whether rich or poor ; and his judgment and experi- 
ence in such cases rendered his services most valuable. But it 
was reserved for the religion of Jesus to chasten and polish a 
character already estimable in the sight of man. The solemn 
and all important declaration that " man must be born again," 
was in 1823 deeply impressed upon his mind, and led him to see 
his own lost condition, and flee to the hope set before him in the 
gospel. In the Saviour, with the eye of faith, he saw the all 
atoning sacrifice for sin ; he repented and believed, and humbly 
sought at the foot of the cross, pardon and peace. Publicly pro- 
fessing that Saviour whom he had found and whom he loved, 
he united with a branch of his visible church, in 1S24 ; and from 
that time became a useful, active, and consistent member. The 
missionary cause, the temperance cause, and the cause of uni- 
versal freedom found in him a hearty supporter, an ardent advo- 
cate. He contributed liberally to the support of the Gospel, and 
delighted in the instituted duties of religion. In the prayer meet- 
ing and the conference room, his fervent prayers and affectionate 
exhortations to the unconverted, we have strong reasons to be- 
lieve, have been under the blessing of God, the means of great 
good. 

He suffered for a long time from a disease of the lungs, yet 
he endured his sufferings without a murmur or complaint, await- 
ing his appointed time ; and when it arrrived he calmly sunk to 
rest.

Woodstock 1 Feb. 1745. 
To the Rev. Mr. Cleaveland, Boston. 
Dear Brother, 

We are all in bodily health. Your sister has 
been wonderfully strengthened, and her bowels of compassion 
have been drawn out for this people in such a wonderful manner, 
that it seems as if ihe soul and body would part asunder. The 
last Monday in January, the Lord gave me a sight to see some 



APPENDIX. 

of my neighbours persecuting the blessed Jesus. It seems to 
me that the enemies of the Lord grow stronger against me ; and 
the Lord has brought me out of this church. Dear brother, I 
desire your prayers and the prayers of your people for me, and 
not only for me and mine, but also for this destitute people that 
I live amongst. We are in a pitiful condition. Mr. Barker 
has left us : and we desire that you would send a letter [inform- 
ing us] where we can get a minister ; and send word how long 
it will be before you come this way yourself. There are several 
that desire to hear you preach. Your brother is under great 
concern by times. And so we remain your loving brother and 
sister, Joseph and Kezia Morse.

Rev. Jeddediah Morse, D. D., of Charlestown, Mass, the fa- 
ther of American Geography, and for a series of years one of 
the most distinguished men in this country, had no obituary 
published of him at the time of his death. This neglect may 
have occurred from the conviction then entertained by his ac- 
quaintances that his sons would shortly favor the public with a 
full history of his eventful life. This has been delayed. But 
as it is still expected, and his character sure of preservation by 
others, I shall not presume, unsupplied as I am with the requi- 
site information, to attempt more than a deficient outline. 

He was the son of a highly respectable farmer and magistrate, 
for whom 1 have heard him express the highest filial gratitude 
and respect ; and the records of Woodstock and the traditions 
of the aged, show how well such regards were deserved, and 
lead to the belief that in the valuation of the natural minds and 
moral merits of his distinguished family, down to the present 
generation, and that in the final award of honors, this revered 
sire will come in for the first, the greatest share. 

Dr. Morse was graduated with distinction at Yale College, 
where he was appointed Tutor, studied his profession, and also 
taught a private school. The want of geographies in his semi- 
nary induced him to prepare notes for his pupils, to serve as 
text books, which he at length had printed. This was the origin 
of his labors in this field of learning. He had an original pas- 
sion for geography, which tradition says rendered him so absent 
minded that once in reciting Greek, being asked by his teacher 
where a verb was found, replied, upon the coast of Africa. The 
Rev. Dr. Holms, his fellow-townsman and student, having mar- 
ried the daughter of Pres. Styles, and received a call from the 
church in Cambridge, is presumed to have introduced Dr. Morse 
at Charlestown, where he spent most of his days in the relation 
of pastor to the first Congregational church.^ When advanced 

* Dr. Morse was peculiarly happy in his domestic relations. His lady 
was of a family distinguished for piety and refinement, and descended from 
ancestors of the first standing in New Jersey. Her talents fitted her for ex- 
tensive influence in society ; and few women, it is believed, have ever oc- 
cupied a similar station in Massachusetts with more dignity and usefulness. 



APPENDIX. 

in life, with health somewhat impaired, he relinquised his charge, 
having received an appointment from the department at Wash- 
ington to visit and report the state of the Indian tribes in the 
interior. Having made this visit and given in his report at 
Washington, which was afterwards published, making a large 
volume, he retired to New Haven, where he not long alter closed 
his active, useful life. That he had a powerful constitution, 
and a mind of rare activity, enterprise, and fertility, must be 
inferred from the amount of his ministerial labors ; the number, 
size, and variety of works which he prepared for the press. 
That he was respectable as a writer, and attained a transatlantic 
reputation is evident from his geography having been made a 
text book in the seminaries of Great Britain, and from D. D. 
having been conferred on him at Edinburgh. Yet his style 
was diffuse and prosey ; his sermons more edifying than pithy 
or moving ; and his productions indicate general information 
rather than profound knowledge or originality of mind. Still 
he could write with force, as is evident from an able review 
in the Panoplist for 1814, or '15, in which he appears as the 
leader of a forlorn hope at the commencement of the first theo- 
logical battle between the Orthodox and Unitarians in New 
England. This article promises to outlast all his other writings ; 
for, while his geographies, gazeteers, and histories have been 
superseded, or must as inevitably be as the prices current; and 
while his controversies with competitors for authorship have 
been consigned to an oblivion from which they will never be 
withdrawn ; yet this review, the publication of which marks an 
epoch in our ecclesiastical history, together with his agency in 
founding religious and charitable institutions, and fitting out 
missions to foreign countries, secures the transmission of his 
name to the people of another age.

Extract from the discourse preached at the funeral of J. C. 
Morse, Esq., by Rev. Edgar Perkins, Pastor of Congregational 
Church, Lockport, N. Y. 

"Joseph Carpenter Morse was born in Columbia County, in the 
year 1800 his age always running accurate with the century. His 
early years were spent under the paternal roof in the place of his 
nativity, enjoying such educational advantages, and engaging in such 
industrial employments as were usual for young persons in his cir- 
cumstances. As the period of manhood approached, his father's fam- 
ily and himself with them, removed to Courtland County in the cen- 
tral part of this State, where he completed his academical and legal 
studies. After his admission to the bar he united himself in marriage 
with an estimable member of one of the most respectable families in 
that county, and opening an office for legal practice in the village of 
Courtlandville, settled in that place. Successfully and satisfactori- 
ly conducting that proportion of the business of the profession in 



APPENDIX. 

that place and vicinity which his abilities, diligence, and address 
did not fail to secure to him, he continued to reside there for about 
four years, when he removed to this village, becoming one of its 
early inhabitants, and one of the oldest, as he has always been one 
of the principal members of the bar, of the county. From that pe- 
riod to the time of his sudden and unexpected death, now so wide- 
ly felt and so deeply deplored, his history is amply within the means 
of your knowledge, and I may forbear remark."

Professor Samuel Finley Morse of Poughkeepsie, N. Y., had a 
passion for painting as inate as his father's for geography ; and in 
his youth the blank margin of his Virgil was more attracting to 
his pencil, than the text to his eyes ; and many a curious figure 
arose there in the absence of his teacher's eye. At the age of 15 
he carried this passion with him 1o college, where, a fracas occur- 
ring among the students, supplied a theme for his pencil to the di- 
version of his fellow-students. The caricature reflecting upon 
some of the faculty, who had interfered, was seized and handed 
to President Dwight, and Morse was called up. After receiving 
his acknowledgement without signs of penitence, the President 
began to lecture him on wasting his time, breaking college laws, 
not observing his engagements, dishonoring and displeasing his 
father, disappointing and grieving his mother, &c. ; but Morse 
heard it all unmoved. At length said Dr. Dwight, " Morse, 
you are no painter; this is a rude attempt, a complete failure," 
&c. This cut him to the heart, and he was dismissed. As he 
returned to the College, weeping, he was met by students inquir- 
ing, " What did Dr. Dwight say to you ? What has he done ? " 
" He says I am no painter," roared Morse, with the pain of a 
wound in his darling passion. 

The eminence he has attained as an artist, the reforms he has 
introduced, and the good he has done, are best known to gentle- 
men of similar pursuits. As the acknowledged inventor of the 
Magnetic Telegraph, his name is immortal. The following com- 
plimentary lines, by one of the race, appeared some years since 
in a journal, which are inserted without criticism. 

THE GENIUS OF AMERICA TO FRANKLIN AND MORSE. 

Eripuit ccelo fulmen, sceptum tyrannis, 

This verdict admiring worlds accord to Franklin's genius ; 
For Morse posterity reserves a fame not less than his, 

E.xigit monumentum a3re perrennius. 
While Franklin turns away God's thunderbolt from men, 
Morse enchains the lightning harmless to his pen. 

'• Tho' marble and recording trap decay, 

And like the grave's mem'ry pass away,'' 
Their names shall brighter grow as time rolls on, 
Their fame remain, when time and earth are gone ; 

The Thunders shall reecho Franklin's name, 

The lightning flash for ever Morse's fame. Esrom.

Extract of a letter to Prof. Zenas Morse, of Hamilton, N. Y. 

" Woodstock, Ct., Oct. 28, 1830. 

" No doubt your feelings are sufficiently fortified to hear partic- 
ulars of your very amiable sister. I assure you, Sir, that 1 write 
what I do know, and testify that I have seen. Allho' Mary always 
maintained the. dignity of her profession, and those who knew her 
best loved her most ; and though she was in a good degree reconciled 
and patient during her illness, yet it was not until disease had 
wasted her flesh and exhausted her strength and hope of recovery 
was gone, that grace triumphed so wonderfully in her soul. Perceiv- 
ing hersplf near dissolution, her soul seemed to quit its hold of ter- 
restrial things and get a glimpse of Heaven, and become absorded in 
rapturous joys. Her spirit gained an ascendency over the weak- 
ness of her body, and her tongue broke out in Heavenly songs of 
praise and animated expressions of joy. 

" Never, no, never shall I forget the look, the expression and joy 
of her countenance. I never before witnessed the power of divine 
grace in an equal degree. I have said and still do say that Elijah 
in a charriot of fire was not happier than Mary in death. This 
sweet frame of mind continued, except some short intervals. But 
the intervening clouds quickly passed away, and one continued be- 
nign and heavenly smile diffused itself over her deathlike coun- 
tenance. Seeing the discharge from her ulcerated lungs, she with 
placid look and smile observed, ' this corruption will put on incorrup- 
tion.' While her whole soul was swallowed up in the love of Jesus, 
her affection for her friends appeared with increased ardour and 
strength. Seeing the health of her father, whose life had just been 
despaired of, returning, and herself drawing near the grave, she said 
with affectionate sweetness, ' Father, I shall reach Heaven before 
you ;' and with the same tenderness of expression, she said to her 
mother, ' I love you, my dear mother, but I love my Jesus better.' 
As her thoughts turned on her absent brothers, she said, ' Tell my 
dear brothers, I hope to meet them all in Heaven.' She expressed 
her love in particular for her sister Samantha. ' O, tell her to lay a 
sure foundation for her hope. Tell her Jesus can make a dying bed 
feel soft as downy pillows are.' 

" All who approached her bed side were forcibly struck with won- 
der and admiration. Her anxiety for sinners, was equal to her love 
and attachment to saints. Two nights previous to her death she 
continued all night in prayer, and concluded by exclaiming vocally, 
' Who shall separate us from the love of Christ,' &c. ; and continued, 
' No, my dear Jesus, no, nothing shall separate us.' 

" The day before her death, the unruffled tranquility of her soul 
evinced that the sting of death was taken away ; and she joined 
with her sister in a song of praise. Soon after, believing herself 
dying, she observed, ' If this is dying, it is happy dying, sweet dy- 
ing.' The day following, which proved her last, she exclaimed, ' I 
shall die this day, according to my desire. I feel a sweet sinking 
into the arms of Christ.' She then made an eniire surrender of 
her body and soul to Him who died to redeem both. She then ten-

derly kissed her surrounding friends, and fell sweetly asleep in the 
arms of Jesus."

Andrew Morse's father, Enoch, for service in the French war, 
had a tract of land assigned him by the Crown, at " Menus," 
now in the Provinces; was shipwrecked, with his family, and 
rendered penniless in attempting to settle upon it. None of his 
heirs have ever laid claim to the land. 

Page 1, No. LXXXVII. 

William 1 Morse, after settling in Newbury, led a humble and 
monotonous life until his dotage ; for, according to the most 
credible record, he was 72 when he was made to figure so un- 
happily in the first legal investigation of witchcraft in New Eng- 
land. The following account from Coffin's history of Newbury 
is inserted, not to excite contempt or indignation towards those 
who, in common with Lord Chief-Justice Hale and others of 
the wisest and best men of that age, believed in witchcraft, but 
to provoke gratitude towards God that we live in an age of more 
light an d security. 

" This year is rendered memorable by the commencement of the 
only recorded case of supposed witchcraft, in Newbury, that was 
ever subjected to a legel investigation. The principal sufferer in 
this tragicomedy, for so it might well be called, was Elizabeth 
Morse, who, with her husband, William Morse, a shoemaker, resided 
in a house, still standing, at the head of Market street, in [now] 
Newbury port. He was then sixty-rive years of age, and is said to 
have been a very worthy, but credulous, unsuspecting man, and 
consequently a very easy dupe to the impositions practiced upon 
him. Not suspecting any deception, the good man readily attributed 
all his troubles and afflictions to the supernatural agency of witch- 
craft, instead of watching the actions of those around him, especially 
of a roguish grandson, who lived with him. At that time, especially, 
a belief in witchcraft was almost universal, and afforded a ready 
solution of everything strange and unintelligible. No one appears 
to have suspecied the boy as the author of any part of the mischief, 
except one Caleb Powell. Believing from what he had seen, that 
the whole affair was the result of human agency, with nothing 
supernatural or marvellous about it, he informed good man Morse 
that he believed he could ascertain the cause of his trouble, and 
develop the whole mystery. The better to conceal his purpose, he- 
affected, as will be hereafter seen, to have a knowledge of astrology 
and astronomy, and if he only had another learned man, and said 
Morse s grandson with him, the whole truth would come to light. 
The consequence was, that suspicions of witchcraft, and of dealing 
in the black art. fell upon him. He was accused, tried, and narrowly 
escaped with his life, thus affording another proof of the danger 
arising to any person, in being, or pretending to be, wiser than his 
neighbors. 



APPENDIX. 

" That the whole affair may be understood, the evidence, and so 
forth, taken from the court records in Salem, is here subjoined. 

'December 3d, lt>79. Caleb Powell being complained of for suspicion of 
working with the devill to the molesting of William Morse and his family, 
was by warrant directed to the constable, brought in by him, the accusa- 
tions and testimonies were read and the complaint respited till the Monday 
following.' 

' December 8th, Monday. Caleb Powell appeared according to order and 
farther testimony produced against him by William Morse, which being 
read and considered, it was determined that the said William Morse should 
present the case against Caleb Powell at the county court to be held at Ip- 
swich the last Tuesday in March following and in order hereunto Wdliam 
Morse acknowledged himself indebted to the treasurer of the county of Es- 
sex the full summe of twenty pounds. 

: The condition of this obi igation is that the sayd William Morse shall pros- 
ecute his complaint against Caleb Powell at the time. 

' Caleb Powell was delivered as a prisoner to the constable till he find se- 
curity of twenty pounds for the answering of sayd complaint, or else he 
was to be cast into prison. 

John Woodbridge. Commissioner.' 

" The following is a specimen of the testimony against him. 

'John Badger affirmeth that Caleb Powell said that he thought by Astrol- 
ojrie. and I think he said by Astronomie too with it he could rind out whether 
or no there were diabolicall means used about the said Morse his trouble, 
and that the said Caleb said hee thought to try to find it out.' 

' Anthony Morse's testimony. 

' I Anthony Mors ocationlly bein_ratt my brother Morse's hous. my brother 
showed me a pece of a brick, which had several tims come clown the 
chimne. I sitting in the cornar towck the pece of brik in my hand. With- 
in a littell spas of tiem the pece of brik was iron from me I know not by 
what meanes. Quickly aftar, the pece of brik came down the chimne. 
Also in the chimny cornar I saw a hamar on the ground. Their being no 
person near the hamar it was sodenly gone ; by what meanes I know not, 
but within a ltttell spas after, the hamar came down the chimny. and with- 
in a littell spas of tiem aftar that, came a pece of woud. about a fute lounsr, 
and within a litell after that came down a fiar biend, the fiar being out. 
This was about ten deays agoo.

Morse."

" The following additional testimony, taken from the county files, 
is here presented, as necessary to a full understanding of the whole 
case. It is in the handwriting of John Woodbridge, esquire, and 
was undoubtedly copied by him from the original, written by Wil- 
liam Morse himself. The curious reader will be much amused in 
comparing this, and the preceding testimony of William Morse, with 
the report of the same case, made by Increase Mather in his ' Re- 
markables,' and especially that made by Cotton Mather, in volume 
second, pages 391 and 392 of the Magnalia. In that * wonderful ' 
book, the latter gentleman perverts and amplifies the testimony to a 
'prodigious and nefandous' extent. If his fourteen astonishing 
histories ' in his ' Thaumatograplva Pneumatica.' have been as much 
indebted to his imagination for the dress which they now wear, as 
that of William Morse, it is no wonder thnt Mr. Savage, in his ap- 
pendix to Winthrop, volume first, page 417. says of him, that 'in-

stead of weighing evidence, [he] had not discretion enough to be 
trusted to wipe the scales.' 

' The testimony of William Morse, which saith together with his wife 
aged both about sixty-five yeeres, that Thursday night being the twenty- 
seventh day of November, we heard a great noyes without round the house 
of knocking the boards of the house and, as we conceived, throwing of 
stones at the house, whereupon myselfe and wife looktout and saw no body 
and the boy all this time with us, but we had stones and sticks thrown at 
us that we were forced to retire into the house againe, afterwards we went 
to bed and the boy with us and then the like noyes was upon the roof of the 
house. 

'The same night about midnight the doore being lockt when we went to 
bed, we heard a great hog in the house grunt and make a noyes, as we 
thought willing to gett out, and that we might not be disturbed in our sleep 
I rose to let him out, and I found a hog in the house and the doore unlockt. 
The doore was firmly lockt when we went to bed. 

'The next morning a stick of links hanging in the chimney, they were 
thro'.vn out of their place, and we hanged them up againe and they were 
thrown down againe and come into the fire. 

' The night following I had a great awle lying in the window, the which 
awle we saw fall downe out of the chimney into the ashes by the fire. 

' After this I bid the boy put the same awle into the cupboard, which we 
saw done and the doore shut to, this same awle came presently downe the 
chimney againe in our sight, and I took it up myselfe. Againe the same 
night we saw a little Indian baskett, that was in the loft before, came downe 
the chimney againe and I took the same baskett, put a piece of brick in it, 
and the baskett with the brick was gone, and come downe againe the third 
time with the brick in it and went up againe the fourth time and came 
downe againe without the brick, and the brick came downe a little after. 

' The next day beina: Saturday, stones, sticks and pieces of bricks came 
downe so that we could not quietly eat our breakfast, and sticks of fire also 
came downe at the same time. 

' That same day in the afternoon my thread four times taken away and 
came downe the chimney againe ; my awle and a gimlett wanting, came 
down the chimney. Againe my leather taken away came downe the chim- 
ney. Againe mv nailes being in the cover of a ferkin taken away, came 
downe the chimney. 

' The next being Sunday many stones and sticks and pieces of bricks 
came down the chimneye. On Monday Mr. Richardson [the minister] and 
my brother beins there, the frame of my cow house they saw very firme, I 
sent my boy to skare the fowles from my hogs' meat. He went to the cow 
house and it fell downe, my boy crying with the hurt of the fall. In the af- 
ternoone the potts hanging over the fire, did dash so vehemently one against 
the other, we sett downe one that they might not dash to pieces. I saw the 
andiron leap into the pott and dance, and leap out, and againe leap in and 
dance, and leap out againe, and leap on a table and there abide, and my 
wife saw the andiron on the table. Also I saw the pott turn itselfe over and 
throw down all the water. Againe we saw a tray with wool leap up and 
downe and throw the wool out and saw no body meddle with it. Againe a 
tub his hoop fiy off, of itselfe and the tub turne over and no body neere it. 
Againe the woolen wheele upside downe and stood upon its end and a spade 
sett on it. Stephen Greenleaf saw it and myselfe and wife. Againe ray 
rope tooles fell downe on the ground before my boy could take them being 
sent for them and the same thing of nailes tumbled downe from the loft un- 
to the ground and no body neere. Againe my wife and the boy making the 
bed, the chest did open and shutt, the bed clothes would not be made to ly 
on the bed but fly off againe. 

'Thomas Rogers and Georpe Hardy being at William Morse his house 
affirme that the earth in the chimney corner moved and scattered on them, 
that Thomas Rogers was hit with somewhat, Hardy, with an iron ladle, as 



APPENDIX. 

is supposed. Somewhat hitt William Morse a great blow, but it was so 
swift that they could not tell what it was but looking downe after they heard 
the noyes they saw a shoe. The boy was in the corner at first, afterward in 
the house. 

' Mr Richardson on Saturday testifyeth that a board flew against his chaire 
and he heard a noyes in another roome, width he supposed in all reason to be 
diabolicall. 

' John Dole saw a large fire stick of candle wood to fall downe, a stone, a 
fire brand, and these things he saw not whence they came, till they fell 
downe by him. 

' Elizabeth Titcomb affirmeth that Powell sayd that he could find out the 
witch by his learning, if he had another scholar with him. 

'John Emerson affirmeth that Powell sayd he was brought up under Nor- 
wood and it was judged by the people there that Norwood studied the black 
art.' 

" In another paper entitled ' a further testimony of William Morse 
and his wife,' he states that ' we saw a keeler of bread turn over — 
a chair did often bow to me and rise up againe — the chamber door 
did violently fly together and the bed did move to and fro and not 
any body neer them.' 

" He also states that the cellar door did violently fly down and a 
drum rolled over it — his 'barn door was unpinned four times, and 
going to shut the doore, the boy being xoith me, the pin (as I did judge) 
coming downe out of the aire did fall down neer to me." 

' Againe Caleb Powell came in as before and seeing our spirits very low 
by the sense of our greet afflictions, began to bemoane our condition and 
sayd that he was troubled for our affiction, and sayd that he eyed the boy, 
and drawed neere to us with great comp; ssion, poore old man, poore old 
woman, this boy is the occasion of yourgriefe, for he does these things and 
hath caused his good old grandmother to be counted a witch. Then sayd I, 
how can all these things be done by him ? Then sayd he although he may 
not have done all, yet most of them, for this boy is a young rogue, a vile 
rogue. I have watched him and see him do things as to come up and 
downe. 

'Caleb Powell also said he had understanding in Astrology and Astrono- 
my and knew the working of spirits, some in one country and some in 
another, and looking on the boy said you young rogue to begin so soone. 
Goodman Morse, if you be willing to let raee have the boy, I will undertake 
you shall be freed from any trouble of this kind while he is with me. I 
was very unwilling at the first, and my wife, but by often urging me to it, 
and when he told me whither and what employment and company he should 
goe in, I did consent to it and we have been freed from any trouble of this 
kind ever since that promise made on Monday night last till this time bein^

• hearing a great noyes in the other roome,' — ' my chaire would not 
stand still but ready to throw me backward,' — ' my cap almost taken 
from ray head three times.' — 'a great blow [on the back of my 
head],' — ' the catt thrown at my wife and thrown at us five times, 
the lamp standing by us on a chest, was beaten downe.'and so forth, 
thus he concludes : 

' Againe a great noyes a great while very dreadful. Againe in the morn- 
ins; a great stone being six pounds weight did remove from place to place. 
We saw it. Two spoones throwed off the table and presently the table 
throwed downe, and beins minded to write, my ink home was hid from me,

While I was writing with my new pen, my ink-horne taken away. Againe

my wife and the boy. Againe my booke of all my accounts throwne into 
the fire and had been burnt presently, if I had not taken it up. Againe 
boards taken off a tub and sett upright by themselves, and my paper, do 
what I could, I could hardly keep it, while I was writing this relation. 
Presently before I could dry my writing, a monmouth hat rubbed along it, 
but I held it so fast that it did blot but some of it. My wife and I being 
much afraid that I should not preserve it for the publick use, we did think 
best to lay it in the bible and it lay safe that night. Againe the next [night] 
I would lay it there againe, but in the morning it was not to be found, the 
bag hanged downe empty, but after was found in a box alone. Againe 
while I was writing this morning I was forced to forbeare writing anymore, 
I was so disturbed with so many things constantly thrown at me.

" At the March term at Ipswich court the following additional tes- 
timony was produced in the case of Caleb Powell, taken February 
twenty-seventh, 1680. 

' Sarah Hale aged thirty-three and Joseph Mirick testify that Joseph 
Moores hath often said in their hearing that if there were any wizards, be 
was sure Caleb Powell was one.' 

Note. This Joseph Moores was the boatswain of the ship, of which Caleb 
Powell was mate, and Joseph Dole, captain. 

' Deposition of Mary Tucker aged about twenty. 
' She remembereth that Caleb Powell came into thier house and sayd to 
this purpose that he coming to William Morse his house and the old man 
being at prayer he thought not fit to go in, but looked in at the window and 
he sayd he had broken the inchantment, for he saw the boy play tricks while 
he was at prayer and mentioned some and among the rest that he saw him to 
fling the slwoe at the old man's head.' 

" The court, after reading all the testimony that could be produced 
against Caleb Powell, came to the following conclusion : 

' Upon hearing the complaint brought to this court against Caleb Powell 
for suspicion of working by the devill to the molesting of the family of 
William Morse of Newbury, though this court cannot find any evident ground 
of proceeding farther against the sayd Powell, yelt we determine that he 
hath given such ground of suspicion of his so dealing that we cannot so ac- 
quit him but that he justly deserves to beare his owne shame and the costs of 
prosecution of the complaint.' 

It is referred to Mr. Woodbridge to hear and determine the charges.' 

" The court at this time must have been men of profound wisdom 
and accurate discrimination, as they appear to have determined, first, 
that he was just guilty enough to pay the expense of being sus- 
pected, secondly, that he ought ' to bear his owne shame,' and, third- 
ly, that they had no reason to believe that he was guilty at all. This 
somewhat resembles the case, which is not found in the books, 
where A. sues B. for breaking a borrowed kettle. The defence was, 
'first we never had the kettle, secondly, it was broken when we 
borrowed it, and thirdly, it was whole when we returned it.' 

The people, however, were not so lenient as the judges. Tf Ca- 
leb Powell was innocent, some other person must be guilty of ' be- 
ing instigated by the divil,' for, in their opinion, no agency merely 
human could produce effects so strange and unaccountable. They

accordingly selected Elizabeth Morse, the wife of William Morse, 
as the guilty person, as we shall hereafter see. 

At a court of assistants on adjournment held at Boston Mav twentieth. 
1680. 

'The grand Jury presenting Elizabeth, wife of William Morse senior. 
She was indicted by the name of Elizabeth Morse for that she not having 
the fear of God before her eyes, being instigated by the Divil and had fa- 
miliarity with the Divil contrary to the peace of our sovereign lord the king, 
his crown and dignity, the laws of God, and of this jurisdiction, after the 
prisoner was at the barr and pleaded not guilty, and put herself on God and 
the country for triall, the evidences being produced were read and com- 
mitted to the jury. 

'The jury brought in their verdict. They found Elizabeth Morse, the 
prisoner at "the barr, guilty according to indictment. The governor on the 
twenty-seventh of May after ye lecture pronounced the sentence. 

' Elizabeth Morse, you are to goe from hence to the place from whence 
you came and thence to the place of execution and there to be hanged by 
the neck, till you be dead, and the Lord have mercy on your soul. 

' The court was adjourned diem per diem and on the first of June 1680 
the governor and magistrates voted the reprieving of Elizabeth Morse con- 
demned to the next session of the court in October as attests. 

Edward Rawson, Secretary.' 

It appears from this record, that the reprieve was not agreeable to 
the deputies, who, on assembling in November, thus complain : 

The deputies on perusal of the acts of the honorable court of assistants 
relating to the woman condemned for witchcraft doe not understand why 
execution of the sentence given against her by said court is not executed 
and that her second repreevall seems to us to be beyond what the law will 
allow and doe therefore judge meete to declare ourselves against it with 
reference to the concurrence of our honored magistrates hereto. 

Wm. Torrey. Cleric. 
November third, 1680. 

Not consented to by the magistrates. 
Edward Rawson, Secretary.' 

No record gives any farther information concerning her, until May, 
1681, when her case was again brought before the general court, to 
whom her husband sent two petitions, the one on the 14th, and the 
other on the 18th, which are as follows : 

' To the honored general! court now sitting in Boston. 

' The humble petition of William Mors in behalfe of his wife, Elizabeth 
Mors your distressed Prisoner, humbly begging this that you would be 
pleased to give your petitioner leave to present to your consideration what 
may clere up the truth in those evidences wch hath bin presented and what 
is otherwise as first. To Joseph Bayley his testimony. Wee are ignorant 
of any such thing. Had it bin then spoken of, we might have cleared our- 
selves He might have observed some other as my wife, it being a frequent 
thins for Catle to be at a stand. 

' To Jonathan Haines. As to his Catle, or himselfe, not making good 
work at such a time, when Catle are haggled out, to place it on such ac- 
count, yt his neglect in not bringing us a bow of mault was the cause, 
which had it bin spoken of wee might have given full satisfaction. 

'To Caleb Moody. As to what befell him in and about his not seeing 
my wife, yt his cow making no hast to hi r calfe, wch wee are ignorant of, 
it being so long since, and being in church communion with us, should 
have spoken of it li*e a christian and yn proceeded so as wee might have

' To John Mighill. About ye loss of his catle was yt he came one day to 
worke, and would have had him come anothor day to finish it because ye 
raine came in so upon us. and his not coming, judges my wife was angry 
and yrfore had such loss, wch wee never knew of. This being twelve 
yeares agoe, did amaze us now to here of it. 

'• To Zachariah Davis. To sensure my wife now for not bringing quills 
aboute sixteen yeares agoe yt his loss of calfes was for that, when his 
father being in communion with us did profess it to us yt he judged it a 
hand of God and was farr from blaming us but rather troubled his sonn 
should so judge. 

' To Joshua Richardson loosing a shepe and his taking it forth off our 
yard, my wife should say you might have asked leave, and whether over- 
driving it or what, now to bring it in I hope will be considered.

and was adjudged to pay damages, and now this is brought in. 

' To James Browne Test, yt one day George Wheeler going forth, my 
wife should say for a trifle she knew he should not come in again, which my 
wife knowes not of it, nor doth some of ye owners ever remember such a 
thing as to judge or charge it on hir, but now is brought forth sixteen yeares 
after when his wife said to goody Hale yt said Browne was mistaken. Hir 
husband did come home well that voyage ; and that James Browne should 
say to Robert Bedell yt Powell, whom wee sued did put in these words and 
not himselfe in the test and yt said Browne did oune to his unkle Mr. Nich- 
olas Noyes yt he could not swareto such a test ; and did refuse to doe it be- 
fore Mr. John Woodbridge, and Mr. Woodbridge did admire he had sworne 
to it. And for his seeing my wife amongst troopers. What condition he

' As for William Chandler's test, about his wife's long sickness and my 
wife's visiting hir, she through hir weakness acted uncivilly and yet now to 
bring in against my wife, when for so many yeares being in full communion 
with us never dealt with us aboute any such thing, but had as loving con- 
verse with him as christians ought, ami knew no otherwise till now. 

' To widow Goodwin hir having hir child sick, gave forth yt it was be- 
witched by my wife, as she thought ; wee hearing of it dealt with hir aboute 
it, and she brake forth in teares, craving forgiveness, and said it was others 
put hir upon it to say as she did, but now urged b_y Powell to say as she now 
saith.

little hole, and ye like, when he himselfe hath said he did not know but he 
was in a dreame, and yt unto several persons he hath so said, though now 
as he test, when my wife disowns any such thing.

of me to see to ketch a pidgin, by throwing a stone, or ye like, and he 
brought a pidgin, which I affirm was wounded, though alive. 

' To goodwife Miricke about a letter. My wife telling her somewhat of 
ye letter, which she judges could not be and my wife hearing of it there 
was a discourse and so forth about this love letter, might speake something 
about it by guess, and not by any such way as she judged, and many have 
spoken, guessing at things, which might be. 

' As to our troubles in ye howse it hath bin died full, and afflictive and to 
say it ceased upon hir departure, when it ceased before for a time and after 
she was gone there was trouble againe. 

' As to rumors of some great wickedness committed in ye house, which 
should cause ye divill so to trouble us, our conscience is clere of ye knowl- 
edge of any such thing more than our common frailtyes and I reverence the 
holy sourainty of God in laying such affliction on us, and that God's ser- 
vants may be so afflicted in this manner as hath bin knowne. And that 
Mr. Wilson of Ipswich, where she hath bin twenty-eight weekes, did de- 
clare to me yt my wife's conversation was christian-like as far as he ob- 
served. Thus praying for you in this and all other your concernes, am your 
distressed servant. 

William Morse. 

Newbury May fourteenth 1681.' 

" From the preceding petition of William Morse, and his attempted 
answers to the accusations and charges brought against his wife 
Elizabeth, and sent to the general court, it appears that seventeen 
persons had given in their testimony in writing, stating their reasons 
whythey verily believed goody Morse was really a witch, and ought 
to be hung, according to the old Mosaic law, which says, ' thou shalt 
not suffer a witch to live.' Of these testimonies only one is to be 
found on the files of the general court. If this one is a fair speci- 
men of the whole, the loss of the remainder is not greatly to be 
regretted, except as a specimen of the logic of that day, and of the 
manner in which some of our ancestors stated their premises, and 
drew thence their most profound conclusions. It is here presented 
entire, and if it does not most conclusively prove that Elizabeth 
Morse was guilty of witchcraft, and ought not to have been suffered 
to live, it will only furnish another evidence that belief and demon- 
stration are not identical, and that what is sincerely believed is not 
for that reason always true. Zechariah Davis thus testifies verbatim 
and literatim. 

1 When I lived in Salisbury, William Morses' wife asked of me whether 
I could let her have a small passell of winges and I told her I woode, so 
she would have me bring them over for her the next time I came over, but 
I came over and did not think of the winges, but met goody Morse, she 
asked me whether I had brought over her winges and I tel her no I did not 
fhinke of it, so I came 3 ore 4 times and had them in my minde a litel be- 
fore I came over but stil forgot them at my coming away so meting with her 
every time that I came over without them aftar I had promised her the 
winges, soe she tell me she wonder at it that my memory should be soe bad, 
but when I came home I went to the barne and there was 3 cafes in a pen. 
One. of them fel a danceing and roreing and was in such a condition as I 
never saw on cafe in before, but being almost night the cattle came home 
and we put him to his dam and he sucke and was well 3 or 4 dayes, and on 
of them was my brothers then come over to Nubery, but we did not thinke 
to send the winsres, but when he came home and went to the barne this 



APPENDIX. 

cafe fel a danceing and roreing so wee put him to the cowe, but he would 
not sucke but rane a roreinge away soe wee gate him againe with much 
adoe and put him into the barne and we heard him roer severall times in the 
night and in the morning I went to the barne and there he was seting upon 
his taile like a doge, and I never see no cafe set aftar that manner before 
and so he remained in these fits while he died.' 

Taken on oath June seventh, 1679. 

" From the date of the preceding testimony, it is evident it was 
used in the county court prior to the transfer of the case to the 
state tribunals. On the eighteenth of May, William Morse pre- 
sented the following petition : 

' To the honored governor, deputy governor, magistrates and deputies now 
assembled in court May the eighteenth 1681. 

' The most humble petition and request of William Morse in behalf of 
his wif (now a condemned prisoner) to this honored court is that they would 
be pleased so far to hearken to the cry of your poor prisoner, who am a con- 
demned person, upon the charge of witchcraft and for a wich, to which 
charge your poor prisoner have pleaded not guilty, and by the mercy of God 
and the goodness of the honored governor, I am reprieved and brought to 
this honored court, at the foot of which tribunal I now stand humbly pray- 
ing your justis in hearing of my case and to determine therein as the Lord 
shall direct. I do not understand law, nor do I know how to lay my case 
before you as I ought, for want of which I humbly beg of our honors that 
my request may not be rejected, but may find acceptance with you it being 
no more but your sentence upon my triall whether I shall live ordy, to which 
I shall humbly submit unto the Lord and you. 

William Morse in behalf of his wife 
Elizabeth Morse.' 

" For reasons which do not appear on the records, the deputies 
had changed their minds, and, instead of being dissatisfied with her 
respite, were willing to grant another hearing of the case. This 
the magistrates opposed. In the court record it is thus stated : 

' The deputyes judge meet to grant the petitioner a hearing the next sixth 
day and that warrants goe forth to all persons concerned, from this court then 
to appear in order to her further triall our honored magistrates hereto con- 
senting. 

Wm. Torre y, Clerk. 
May twenty-fourth, 1681. 

Not consented toby the magistrates. 
Edward Rawson, Secretary.' 
*#** # * # * 

" On the court records I find nothing more concerning Elizabeth 
Morse. From an essay on witchcraft, by the reverend John Hale, 
of Beverly, and published in the year 1697, I make the following 
extracts : 

' She [Elizabeth Morse] being reprieved was carried to her own home 
and her husband (who was esteemed a sincere and understanding christian by 
those that knew him) desired some neigbour ministers, of whom I was one, 
to discourse his wife, which we did, and her discourse was very christian, 
and still pleaded her innocence as to that, which was laid to her charge. 
We did not esteem it prudence for us to pass any definite sentence upon 
one under her circumstances, yet we inclined to the more charitable side. 
In her last sickness she was in much trouble and darkness of spirit, which 
occasioned a judicious friend to examine her strictly, whether she had been 
guilty of witchcraft, but she said no, but the ground of her trouble was some 
impatient and passionate speeches and actions of her while in prison upon 



APPENDIX. 



the account of her suffering wrongfully, whereby she had provoked the 
Lord by putting contempt upon his word. And in fine she sought her par- 
don and comfort from God in Christ and dyed so far as I understand, pray- 
ing to, and resting upon, God in Christ for salvation.'

Benjamin 3 , tertius, resided exactly opposite the head of Marl-

He gave the land for the Town and County House, erected on 
the site of the house since built by Rev. Abraham Moor, and 
now owned by the heirs of the late Capt. Amos Knight. Cir- 
cumstances almost prove that he was the precocious rogue whose 
feats involved his grandparents in so much persecution ; and 
precocious he must have been to have contrived and executed 
them at the age of eleven years. When the date of his father's 
marriage, and the birth of his brother Joseph shall be ascertained, 
the question may be more accurately weighed which of the 
brothers was the rogue. Both made very likely men.

APPENDIX. 



Page 134, No. XC. 

Hon. Freeman H. Morse is the second son of William Morse, 
and was born in Bath, Maine, in the year 1S07. 

Both parents were persons of strong native powers of mind, 
and much energy and excellence of character. They bestowed 
unwearied care upon the moral and religious training of their 
children, and enforced their precepts by their own personal ex- 
ample. Seven sons now living attest, by their character, the 
success of the efforts which these parents made. 

The subject of this sketch received, in early life, the advan- 
tages only of the public schools of his native town, and these he 
ceased to enjoy after the age of fourteen. About this period he 
commenced, without the aid of an apprenticeship, the business 
of a ship carver, and very soon attained, by his own unaided 
efforts, to great skill in the art. This business he has ever since 
pursued, except while engaged in the public service. During 
the period of his minority, he was accustomed to labor alone, 
which gave him much opportunity for reflection ; and, by un- 
remitting diligence, he was able to secure much time for reading 
and study. At this time of his life he was often so absorbed, 
during the intervals of labor, in literary pursuits, that he did not, 
for weeks together, set his foot in a public street except on Sun- 
day. When about nineteen it was the custom of a young friend 
occasionally to lodge with him. On one occasion this friend 
retired and left Mr. Morse engaged in study. After some time 
he also retired without waking his friend ; after three or four 
hours sleep he arose, leaving his companion still sleeping, and 
sat down to his books. Waking soon after, while it was yet 
dark, his friend supposed that Morse had not slept at all, and 
was quite incredulous when told that, having enjoyed his al- 
lotted time of sleep, he was only at his usual morning labor. 
The writer of this sketch, at a later period, has repeatedly seen 
him, when engaged in parts of his work requiring but little 
nicety of touch, with a book spread out on the bench before 
him, from which a paragraph would be every few moments 
snatched to be digested amid the vigorous blows of the mallet. 

Mr. Morse's mind seems to have received its earliest develop- 
ment through the study of subjects connected wilh art and 
poetry. Indeed he seems to have chosen his present business 
from the fact that it gave an opportunity for the gratification of 
an instinctive but partially developed love of sculpture. Under 
other circumstances, this early capacity and love for art might 
have made him an artist. But in his robust and well-propor- 
tioned nature, the reasoning faculties ultimately predominated 
over the creative fancy, and led him through the early study of 
art and poetry to those profound and comprehensive pursuits 
that form the basis of the statesman's mind. In this transitive 
period of his mind he was aroused to enthusiasm by his studies 



APPENDIX. 

in poetry and literary history. With the most eager interest he 
went over the labors, difficulties, and triumphs of the monarchs 
of literature in all ages. He sympathised with them in their 
aspirations after excellence and their dreams of immortality. 
The clearness and original heartiness of his mind would not 
long permit him to remain in the gorgeous " cloud land" of 
fancy ; for shadows he sought substance ; from facts that grati- 
fied the imagination he sought principles that would form a firm 
footing for the reason. He passed, as his mind grew, from 
poetry and art and general literature to metaphysics. He read 
with care and advantage the principal writers on moral and in- 
tellect ual philosophy, and the subjects connected with them ; and 
thus learned, in that admirable school for the intellect, the limi- 
tations of human inquiry, so necessary to him who would form 
just conceptions of God, man, and nature. 

History, politics, political economy, and public law, seem to 
have taken his attention at a still later and maturer period, and 
these formed his mind more immediately for the public life to 
which he was subsequently called. At intervals, in connection 
with these subjects, he has obtained a general acquaintance with 
physical science, so far as it can be pursued without an acquaint- 
ance with the higher mathematics. Whatever could aid him in 
attaining excellence as a public speaker, in the best works in 
logic, rhetoric, and style, he consulted with diligence and care. 
Early in his career he became connected with a society of young 
men which met statedly for debate upon historical, political, and 
moral questions. This society comprised a large portion of the 
more active-minded men of his native town, of various pursuits 
and professions. Almost immediately Mr. Morse was recog- 
nized as among the ablest reasoners and most fluent and correct 
speakers in the society. The debates in their society had a very 
important bearing in training his mind to habits of thorough 
investigation and logical analysis, and developing his capacity 
as a speaker. These debates often required extensive reading 
and careful thought, and Mr. Morse always prepared for them 
with great assiduity. The writer of this sketch speaks from 
personal knowledge when he says that often days of laborious 
investigation were expended in preparation for a single debate. 
Often has he seen the notes for these discussions lying on a 
desk in Mr. Morse's workshop, to which additions would be 
made as he digested his reading and systematized his reflections 
over his labor. All the discussions were conducted, and the 
business transacted, in this society with strict reference to the 
forms of parliamentary law, and he thus became tolerably expert 
in that perplexing but necessary part of the education of a legis- 
tor before he had ever been a member of any legislative body. 
With this training he was able at once, when elected to repre- 
sent his native town in the legislature, to take a high stand as a 
debater and a man of business. We have been ihus particular 



APPENDIX. 



in giving the means and the process of Mr. Morse's mental 
growth on account of the false idea that has been formed by many, 
of his habits and character. He is no mental prodigy that has 
sprung into his present high position at a bound, by mere force of 
rude, uncultivated talent ; but a man whose taste and power of 
reasoning and expression have been cultivated and developed by 
many years of energetic and constant mental labor — by a fa- 
miliarity with all the great masters of thought in every age — by 
the constant practice of writing and speaking under circum- 
stances that subjected him to the severest criticism. Probably 
few professional men have, during the same length of time, de- 
voted more hours to purely literary labor than has Mr. Morse. 
No conclusion unfavorable to profound and protracted study as 
a preparative for public life, can be drawn from his career. Few 
men have belter illustrated the remark of Webster that " Genius 
is thought, Study is application." 

Before throwing his first vote he had investigated the funda- 
mental principles of the political parties dividing our country, 
and had adopted the general principles of the Whigs. 

Becoming known to his townsmen by his general attainments, 
his correct and comprehensive views as a politician, he was se- 
lected in the year 1839, to represent his native town in the 
Legislature of the State. This office he continued to fill for 
four years in succession. During his first year of membership 
he seldom mingled in the debates, and made but one premedi- 
tated speech, and this was upon a local question. In the suc- 
ceeding sessions he engaged freely in all the discussions of in- 
terest or importance, and his talents were acknowledged by all. 
He was twice the Whig candidate for speaker; his straight-for- 
ward course as a public man, the great excellence of his private 
character, his skill and power as a debater, gained for him the 
respect of his political opponents and the entire confidence of 
his own party. Many of the speeches which he made during 
this period were reported and published extensively by the Whig 
papers of the State. A portion of ihese we have examined ; our 
limits allow but a brief notice of a few of these. In April, 
1841, Mr. M. made a speech on the bill to raise a State tax, in 
which he gave an able and searching examination of ihe finan- 
cial management of the land agent of the Slate. The speech is 
clear, well thought out, accurate in statement, showing no effort 
after any thing beyond the simple financial object which he had 
in view. During the same session he spoke on a bill for incor- 
porating a manufacturing company, in reply to some animad- 
versions on the manufacturing policy of Massachusetts, and in 
defence of ihe character of the operatives. This was at a time 
when the policy of the dominant party was adverse 1o corpora- 
tions for such purposes, and he took occasion to show the good 
effect upon the State of fostering home industry, and to demon- 
strate the oroprietv of that policv that has been since, in admeasure.

adopted by the Democratic party of the State. In May, 1842, he 
spoke on a bill for the apportionment of representatives to the 
Legislature. It is a straight-forward, manly discussion of the 
points at issue, well fortified by statistics ; the conclusion is an 
indignant protest against what he considered the injustice of the 
bill. 

In June, 1S43, he spoke on the bill for districting the S.ate 
for members of Congress. This speech is marked by all of Mr. 
Morse's most brilliant and vigorous points as a speaker. It com- 
bines close and logical argument, ridicule, sarcasm, and lofty 
and indignant rebuke. It was made without special preparation, 
without ihe aid of notes, and occupied an hour and a quarter 
•in its delivery. It was called out by what he thought an in- 
fringement of the freedom of elections — the State having been 
so districted as to secure the election of members of Congress 
belonging to the dominant party. So great was the influence 
of his eloquence in the Legislature, and afterwards during the 
canvass, that he was elected to Congress from the very district 
with which the greatest liberty had been taken, although a ma- 
jority of the voters were politically opposed to him. 

In the same session he made a speech on ihe refunding of 
Gen. Jackson's fine, in which he discusses in an able manner, 
the vexed question of ihe right of instruction, and exposes the 
fallacies of iis advocates with great power and effect. 

In August, 1843, Mr. Morse was nominated by the Whigs 
of his district as a candidate for Congress. The nomination was 
hailed with interest in all parts of the Stale, and called forth ex- 
pressions of confidence and respect from all the leading Whig 
papers. Perhaps few men have been candidates for Congress, 
whose fitness for the office was more unanimously acknowledged 
by both friends and foes. After a severe contest he was re- 
turned in a district (as we have already hinted) containing a 
clear majority of his political opponents ; ihus showing the 
strong hold which he had gained upon the community by his 
lalents and personal character. His first speech in Congress was 
an extempore reply to some severe animadversions of Hon. C. 
J. Ingersoll of Philadelphia, upon the motives and character of 
the Maine Commissioners on the North-easlern Boundary, and 
upon those of Mr. Webster, as the negotiator of ihe treaty of 
Washington. Excited by the occasion, in a brief pointed reply, 
he successfully repelled the charges of Mr. Ingersoll, and made 
a very favorable impression upon the House. 

On other occasions afterwards he spoke on subjects in which 
he or his constituents were interested, as opportunity offered, but 
did not, except on two questions, occupy the lime fixed by the 
rules of the House. A bill admitting Florida and Iowa into the 
Union had been reported. The constitution of Florida contained 
a provision prohibiting the passing of any law for the emancipa- 
tion of slaves, and prohibiting the entrance of free blacks into 



APPENDIX. 

the State. Mr. Morse submitted an amendment providing that 
the act for the admission should not take effect until these un- 
just articles in the constitution of Florida should be rescinded. 
Judge Bailey of Virginia attacked this amendment and its mover 
with great acrimony and coarseness, speaking of the amendment 
as coming from the " extreme north-east" and from a member 
"not greatly distinguished for statesmanship" and of such a 
movement from such a quarter as " highly arrogant." The reply 
of Mr. Morse is one of his happiest efforts of improvisation. 
We give an extract from that portion relating to the personal 
attack of Judge Bailey. 

" Sir, if it be a crime in a young man and a young member not to 
have gained distinction as a statesman — not to have identified his 
name with great governmental measures — not to sit reverently and 
in mute astonishment, when the oracle from Accomac (Judge Bai- 
ley) condescends to enlighten the world with the rich fruits of his 
long experience as a statesman, then indeed have I much to answer 
for. I must surely plead guilty to the charge of a want of distinction. 
Sir, if I may be pardoned for so far departing from the rules of cor- 
rect taste as to make a momentary allusion to the ' undistinguished ' 
individual whose acts and standing as a 'statesman' have been so 
unceremoniously forced on the attention of the House, by the cen- 
sor from Virginia, permit me to say that I regard myself as but an 
humble member among the humblest of those who occupy seats on 
this floor. I am no favorite of fortune — she has never lavished her 
bounties on me. My only inheritance has been a strong arm, a de- 
termined spirit, and a life of toil. In that humble sphere, among 
the first cherished objects of my soul was love of our country and 
her free institutions, which have left the paths to honor and the 
prizes of industry, integrity, and laudable ambition open to all — to 
the humble individual who now addresses you, as well as to the 
brilliant luminary who has just taken his seat. If, mid the visions 
of my youth, I ever sent forward an aspiring thought to this central 
point of attraction in the republic, it was always accompanied by 
the consoling thought that the representatives of a great people, so 
far as rights and privileges are concerned, met on the same level; 
that a rising and falling scale of privileges, as applied to members 
on this floor, either conventional, or such as may silently steal upon 
them by party tyranny, or which may grow up under habits of ex- 
clusiveness and assumed superiority, are against, our written code, 
and the spirit and genius of our institutions. 

" This, Mr. Chairman, is a representative body ; we meet under a 
written constitution — all, in the eye of that constitution, standing on 
the same ground. To the member of large experience, of superior 
wisdom and virtues, I am ever ready to yield a willing homage ; but 
never, for a single instant, can I yield a right — for rights here do 
not appertain exclusively to the member — they are not his to 
yield — he holds them for the benefit of others, particularly for those 
whom he directly represents, and unfaithful and craven-spirited 
must be the man who will yield a single right, however trifling, to 
the exacting, overbearing and 'arrogant' demand of the gentleman 
from Virginia." 



APPENDIX. 



Although in no sense an imitation, it reminds one of the cel- 
ebrated reply of the elder Pitt to Walpole, when he had been 
accused of " the atrocious crime of being a young man." 
Though Pitt's speech, as it has come down to us, is said to 
have been stripped of some of its power, having been disguised 
by the balanced periods and antithetical point of Johnson, who re- 
ported it, we may know its power from its effect. Walpole, made 
bold by years of successful corruption and intrigue, exclaimed, 
on hearing this early effort of the " great commoner," " we must 
silence that terrible cornet of horse ; " and we presume that 
Judge Bailey also soon learned that he had aroused the wrong 
antagonist, and that the "undistinguished member" from the 
" extreme north-east," was capable of measuring swords with the 
best statesmen of the Old Dominion on their own ground. 

Mr. Morse's closing effort in Congress was a speech against 
the admission of Texas ; and it seems to us the ablest of his 
published speeches. It is worthy of remark that there is evi- 
dently a constant improvement in the tone and character of his 
public efforts to ihe latest period of his political life. This 
speech is marked throughout by condensation, terseness, and 
energy of style, and great skill and power of argument. Our 
limits will not permit an analysis of this able speech. It is suffi- 
cient to say that it met the highest expectation of his friends, and 
added to the high reputation which he had already acquired. 
An extract from a speech so well wrought out and logical, will 
fail in giving an idea of its symmetry and proportion as a whole, 
or the finish of the parts ; still we feel impelled to give one or two 
paragraphs, as illustrative of the high moral ground which Mr. 
Morse has ever taken in treating questions of national and state 
politics. In these days of time-serving expediency, it is refresh- 
ing to meet a statesman who really believes that, for nations as 
well as men honesty is the best policy. Appeals had been made 
to the North in favor of the admission of Texas, on the ground 
that its trade would be increased by the measure ; said he, 
" Such an appeal on such an occasion, and in favor of such a 
measure, is unworthy of an American representative, and will 
be at once and indignantly rejected by all honest men. Sup- 
pose the future should verify the predictions of those who ad- 
dress themselves to man's love of gain ; suppose it should 
widen, to some extent, the circle of trade, would that heal a 
wounded constitution ? Would that give us back our lost honor 
or restore the rights of plundered Mexico ? Would it blot out 
the infamy of forging new and stronger manacles for an op- 
pressed and inoffensive race ? Will a little paltry trade indem- 
nify us for the loss of national virtue, for unsettling and corrupt- 
ing the public mind with that anti-Christian desire for conquest 
which is even now calling from this hall for the subjugation not 
only of provinces, but of kingdoms and empires that lie beyond 
Texas? No, sir ! no; national virtue, national justice, national 






APPENDIX. 



honor, are more precious than the wealth of the universe, and 
however much it may be our duty, as legislators, to seek new 
channels for trade, it must never be done at such a tremendous 
sacrifice." 

Mr. Morse was not reelected to Congress, entirely, as we be- 
lieve, through the influence of the Liberty Party, who, although 
he had, even in Congress, and elsewhere, been one of the bold- 
est advocates of freedom, they thought themselves called upon 
to make a diversion, which resulted in the election of a gentleman 
in favor of the annexation of Texas, and of the Mexican war. 

After the expiration of his Congressional term, he was unani- 
mously nominated by a large convention from all parts of the 
State, as the Whig candidate for Governor. This nomination 
called out the most hearty responses from the Whig papers of 
the State, but although he obtained a larger vole, probably, than 
would have been thrown for any other Whig, he failed of an 
election. Mr. Morse positively declined being a candidate a 
second time for the office, though earnestly desired to do so by 
the voice of his entire party in the State. 

It is necessary for us to notice, in passing, Mr. Morse's present 
relation to the Whig party, and the causes that have led him into 
it. During the whole of his public life, he has ever been a stead- 
fast opponent of the extension of slavery, and of aggressive war. 
This opposition has sprung from no time-serving political expe- 
diency, but from deep seated conviction. Having attended, as a 
delegate, the Whig State Convention called to express the voice 
of the party in reference to the selection of a candidate for the 
Presidency, he expressed himself strongly against the claims of 
Gen. Taylor to that nomination ; thinking, with Mr. Webster and 
many other distinguished Whigs, that it was a nomination "not 
fit to be made," and, moreover, that he was not the deliberate and 
fair choice of the Whigs of Maine. After the nomination had 
been made at Philadelphia, he saw no reason to change his opin- 
ion of Gen. Taylor, and maintained, with unyielding constancy, 
his deliberate convictions. Perhaps no man in Maine could have 
brought more weight of inflnence to the support of Gen. Taylor, 
than Mr. M., and consequently no man would have been more 
fully entitled to the gratitude of his cabinet, in case of a successful 
issue of the campaign. He might have held himself aloof until 
the critical moment of the contest, and like many other dis- 
tinguished politicians, set his own price for his services and 
adhesion. But Mr. Morse took no such course. He had op- 
posed Texas ; he had opposed the Mexican war ; he had opposed 
the tendency of our people to elevate 1o high civil office on the 
ground of mere military service. He had given utterance to 
these sentiments, not to point a period, or to secure a reputation 
as a philanthropist, but because he believed them. He never 
pursued philanthrophy as a trade. When, then, it became nec- 
essary for him to sacrifice to principle his hopes of political 



APPENDIX. 



distinction, he was not found wanting. He was also a Whig 
from principle and conviction, and he could not yield the grea* 
doctrines which he had defended with so much eloquence and 
power to temporary expediency, by giving his vote and influence 
to Mr. Van Buren, who had stood, and still stood before the 
world as the embodiment of those principles which Mr. M. 
believed fatally injurious to his country. Though sacrificing 
every thing but his honor for Free Soil, he could not become a 
member of the Free Soil parti/, for he had not changed his 
political principles. Said he to a friend, " In declining to give 
my vote and influence to Gen. Taylor, I neither adopted any 
new articles of political faith, nor abandoned any before enter- 
tained ; I simply moved on in what I believed a straight-forward, 
consistent course." Whatever may be thought by his political 
friends of the expediency of his course in not voting for Gen. 
Taylor, no man may dare to insinuate aught against his honesty 
and manliness of purpose. He dared to stand alone. And we 
believe it to have been the most honorable act of his whole 
political life. Few men have the nerve to withstand the persua- 
sion of friends, and the taunts of enemies, in circumstances like 
these. When the passions of the time shall have subsided, the 
position of Mr. Morse will become clear, and his motives will be 
vindicated to all. We believe that the people will yet call him 
from his voluntary retirement, and delight to do honor to a states- 
man whom the ostracism of party can neither intimidate nor 
subdue. 

On one occasion only did he give in public his reasons for 
refusing his vote to Gen. Taylor. Having been earnestly re- 
quested to do so by many personal friends in his native town, 
he spoke at length on the candidates and questions at issue, in 
a speech described by a political antagonist present, as one of 
" great power, and which produced a tremendous effect." Al- 
though called upon suddenly, yet excited by the occasion, he 
brought all the sources of his mind to bear upon the subject. 
He seemed to feel called upon to show cause why he was not 
found in those ranks in which he had so often and so vigorously 
done battle for principles which were still dear to his heart. And 
most ably did he acquit himself. Never has he occupied a 
prouder position than on that occasion — standing alone, desert- 
ed by those who had flattered and courted him in other days, 
yet clothed with the irresistible power of a good conscience, and 
a just cause. Having thus given vent to his protest against 
what he conceived to be injustice and want of principle, he 
quietly retired to his labor, despising alike government patronage 
and political honors, if they must be bought by forfeiting alle- 
giance to truth and duty. 

During the last winter, while absent from Bath, (which had 
recently received a city charter,) he was selected, without his 
own knowledge or consent, to the office of Mayor. The duties 



APPENDIX. 



of this office he is now discharging, while he at the same time 
carries on his usual business. 

Of Mr. Morse, as a speaker, enough has been said incident- 
ally, already, to give an idea of the writer's opinion. A few 
words, only, need be added. His style is clear, correct, and 
copious — perhaps a little too stately and scholar-like for the 
highest popular effect. His sentences are harmonious, and al- 
ways carefully finished. His diction has in it, perhaps, some- 
what too large an infusion of the latin element, for a tribune of 
the people. His habit of always mounting to first principles in 
his investigation of subjects, has led him sometimes to use sci- 
entific and general forms of expression, where singular terms, 
and idiomatic forms, would have more energy. When, however, 
he becomes aroused to his intensest glow of passion, these traces 
of the retired student pass away, and he becomes terse, con- 
densed, and idiomatic. 

His correct and cultivated taste, and his familiarity with the 
masters of English speech, have prevented him from indulging 
in those cant expressions and low allusions which too often 
disfigure the speeches of politicians accustomed to address polit- 
ical assemblies. His written productions are marked by a 
chasteness and beauty of diction and illustration which give 
proof of equal power as a writer and speaker. 

His manner, as a speaker, is excellent. His enunciation is 
clear and distinct; his voice strong; his position and gestures 
graceful aud dignified. In his early efforts, he spoke somewhat 
too rapidly, and this, sometimes, gave the impression of a want 
of repose, but time and practice have, in a great measure, re- 
moved these defects. He is, in person, of middle size, slightly 
inclined to a full habil, of unusual physical strength and agility. 
He has a full and finely developed forehead, black hair, and a 
large black eye, which, when he is excited in argument, literally 
glows and flashes. His intellectual powers are strong, symmet- 
rical, and harmoniously developed. He is, in mind, as well as 
in body, eminently a robust and healthy man. Had he less 
strength of reflective and reasoning power, he might show to the 
superficial observer more of ihe elements of genius, by giving 
freer play to a naturally strong and vivid imagination. But though 
the admirable proportion of his mind may deceive those who do 
not know him intimately, as to the strength of its individual ca- 
pacities, it is this, more than any thing else, which has fitted him 
alike for the debater and the committee man, for ihe member of 
an administration or the tribune of an opposition. His will is firm, 
and his industry indefatigable, and his moral character without re- 
proach. In all the relations of public and private life, no breath 
of dishonor has ever touched his name, and when the present 
causes of political excitement shall have passed a\\*ay 5 we may 
confidently expect that he will again be called by the people to 
the service of the State. But if fidelity to all the turns and 



APPENDIX. 

changes of party shall always be thought of more value than 
fidelity to truth and conscience, his character and example, both 
public and private, will enroll him among those who deserve 
well of their country and mankind.

5. Robert Morse appears to have left England about the com- 
mencement of the civil war, and to have first established him- 
self in Boston as a tailor. That he was a Puritan of rigid 
morality, sterling worth, rare enterprise, and considerable prop- 
erty, circumstances attest. He resided at Boston, Newbury, 
Rowley, and Long Island, before he settled in New Jersey, and 
was considerably concerned in the transfer of real estate in some 
of these places. Tradition makes him to have been the brother 
of Anthony and William ; but the records are unfavorable to so 
near a relationship, though one undoubtedly existed. His moral 
qualities, as far as hinted at, were more like those of the Dedham 
family, as have been those of his descendants down to within 
my own observation. He was perhaps related to both families, 
and may form the connecting link by which they may be traced 
to a common origin in England. In this supposition I am 
strengthened by the allegation of the oldest and one of the 
ablest genealogists in this country, Jonathan Leland, Esq., of 
Sutton, that he formerly noticed the resemblance between the 
races of Samuel and Anthony, and was satisfied of their origi- 
nal identity. Further, John Morse of Dedham, also a tailor and 
the son of Samuel, moved into Boston and established his busi- 
ness there at the time Robert made his first appearance at New- 
bury, as though he had taken Robert's place ; and when Robert 
removed to Long Island, Ephraim, the fourth son of John, who 
had undoubtedly been brought up a tailor, aged about twenty, 
seems to have attended or soon followed him, and settled at 
Newton. (See VIII.) The remainder of Robert's history is 
to be explored in the archives of New Jersey, and particularly 
in town and church records at Woodbridge, Elizabethtown, and 
vicinity, where he will probably be seen to have acted a con- 
spicuous and honorable part in founding and conducting the 
settlement; and where he seems to have laid ihe foundation for 
the wealth and respectability of his enterprising race. This part 
of his history would have now appeared had not a certain com- 
munication failed to reach the compiler. Robert, by removing 
to New Jersey, did not consider himself as forfeiting his interest 
in the proprietary of Newbury, but did no more than assert his 
claim. The last deed conveying "all" his private lands in 
" Auld Newbury " to Nathaniel Clark for £ 90, was signed July 
12, 16(57, " Robert Morse," as were his other deeds. His race, 
like himself, appear to have had such a horror of a monotonous 
life that it is impossible to trace them.

Dr. Isaac Morse 5 of Elizabethtown, New Jersey, with whom 
the author had acquaintance, cannot be fairly represented wilhin 
the space allowed in a work of this nature. He had, among 
other notable qualities, great mirthfulness, courage, firmness, 
constancy, and perseverance. He had such a fund of good 
nature that he could relish a joke even at his own expense. 
The following anecdotes, found in the mouths of his neighbours 
while he was yet living, illustrate certain points in his character. 

Returning late one evening, from a professional visit, the Dr. 
perceived a neighbor helping himself to an armful of his fine 
split hickory wood ; and, as he had often missed from his pile 
many a good load, he resolved to give the man a lesson. So, 
after waiting for him to collect a heavy load and start for home 
unobserved, as he supposed, the Dr. quietly picked up the 
largest log he could carry, and followed on. No sooner had 
the thief reached home and thrown down his load, than the Dr. 
arrived, panting for breath, with his, and throwing it down ex- 
claimed, " there is a back-log for you." It need not be added 
that this was the last wood that took that direction. 

At another lime Dr. Morse owned a vessel that used to run 
between Morse's Mill and New York. Once, when loaded 
nearly half mast high with hay, she ran foul of an English ves- 
sel ; and, not being able to disentangle as speedily as was de- 
sired, the English captain, furious at the delay, cried out, " cut 
the infernal Yankee shallop's rigging and let her drift." The 
Dr. rushed upon deck, waving a living fire-brand in defiance, 
thundering forth, "if you cut a rope, I fire the hay, and we will 
both go to destruction together." " Why captain," said the En- 
glishman, " we shall both drift down to Hell Gale." " Well, 
the gate wont stop you if you cut one of my ropes," replied the 
Dr. The Englishman countermanded his order, and without 
further difficulty got the vessel clear ; and was so well pleased 
as to invite the Dr. on board to accept a Ireat. 

On another occasion, as the Dr. was quietly seated at a tavern 
in Elizabethtown, a neighbour came running in, exclaiming, 
" Dr. your mill is on fire ! " The Dr., without rising, turned 
to the landlord and requested him to give the gentleman a glass 
of grog, as he appeared lo be tired, and then resumed his con- 
versation on the topic broached before ihe alarm, well knowing 
the mill, three miles distant, would be in ashes before help could 
be had from that place. 

Dr. Morse owned a useless slave, named Pete, at the lime of 
a strong opposition between his personal friend, the late Gov. 
Ogden, and the affluent Mr. Gibbins, when the latter ran a 
steamboat free between Elizabethtown and New York. Pete 
took advantage of the opportunity and walked himself off. The

most honorable man, as I believe all the high-minded in the 
community did, whose eyes were not put out by the glare of 
Gibbins' wealth ; and, not willing that Gibbins should find it 
for his interest to attempt any longer to break down Ogden, 
determined to make him pay for the slave, and brought an ac- 
tion. Gibbins defended the suit with great pertinacity, and 
took it through every stage of litigation that his ingenuity, and 
that of the ablest counsel could suggest. But there is a bottom 
to the bottomless pit of chancery, and Gibbins was compelled 
to pay for the negro with costs. Among other defences which 
Gibbins put in, was the want of notice or warning, " something 
equivalent to the putting in mora in civil law pleadings." After 
the final decision of the case, Dr. Morse, with a very grave face, 
accosted Mr. Gibbins, expressing surprise that a man of his 
wealth should object to paying for a negro, and that he should 
have urged the want of notice or warning; "and now sir," he 
added, " I give you fair warning, if you ever bring him back, I 
will sue you for $300 more." " Why," said Mr. Gibbins, "did 
you not want him?'' " No sir, I have often told him if he 
would run away, and never come back again, I would give him 
$ 20." 

His course, though censurable, finds an apology in the con- 
duct of Gibbins towards the patriotic Ogden, and the violence 
of the hostility then existing between their friends.

Hon. Nathan Morse, Esq. late Recorder of New Orleans, 
was educated in a private Seminary of great and just celebrity 
at Elizabethtown,and enjoyed the enviable opportunity of reading 
law with Gov. Aaron Ogden, a man eminently distinguished by 
his services in the revolutionary war, and a statesman of the first 
order. At the age of twenty-one he removed to Cincinnati, then 
a small village on the Ohio river. Here he remained a year or 
two, when he removed to New Orleans. In 1808 he married, in 
Attackapas Co., La., Miss Martha C. only daughter of Judge E. 
C. Nicholls, one of the most accomplished men of his day, who 
could write and speak in three or four different languages, as 
though each had been his vernacular tongue; and who had been 
appointed to a Judgeship by his acquaintance and friend, Presi- 
dent Jefferson. 

The author's acquaintance with Judge Morse was too limited 
to allow of an attempt to sketch his character. I never met him 
but once, and I must say that no man of the name ever attracted 
this heart more powerfully. The interview happened twenty- 
seven years ago, and yet the impression is as vivid and pleasing 
at this time as though it had been of yesterday's occurrence ; 
and I cannot recall it without an ejaculation, that as long 
as the name shall endure, every Morse may aim to be a gentle-

man. An incident occurred at this time to draw forth his self- 
possession, forbearance, and cordial generosity, towards an inex- 
cusable offender. This self-control and generosity of spirit, he 
must have had in an eminent degree, as the following mournful 
account, gathered from survivors, will show. 

In descending the Mississippi, Oct. 1833, it was discovered that 
the steamer St. Martin was on fire, and in a few minutes all efforts 
to extinguish the flames were vain. The tiller ropes being burnt, and 
the engine still in motion, the boat was running at a fearful speed 
without approaching either shore ; and her velocity only fanned the 
fearful element that was fast consuming the frail boat, and en- 
croaching upon the alarmed passengers. Judge Morse was per- 
fectly calm and collected, and prevented several from jumping 
overboard while the boat seemed to be running toward one of the 
shores ; but as soon as she took a turn towards th^ middle of the 
river, he advised all to take their chance, as the fire was fast ap- 
proaching the passengers, already crowded together in the fore part 
of the boat. The greatest danger consisted in their being compelled 
to dive into the water in front of the wheels, now moving with the 
velocity of mill-stones, and which were believed to have destroyed 
most of the company who then perished. With a full conscious- 
ness of this danger, Judge Morse determined, at the risk of his own 
life, to save if possible, a little black boy who accompanied him, 
and who was much frightened, and unable to swim. He being a 
very athletic man, an excellent swimmer, and perfectly cool and 
self-possessed, had a fairer prospect, if unencumbered, of saving his 
life than others who escaped. He was warned by many of the pas- 
sengers that the boy would greatly embarrass if not drown him. 
Still he persisted in the attempt, and throwing off his coat he seized 
the lad and dove with him as "deep as possible to avoid the wheels, 
but was never seen to rise, being undoubtedly struck as were many 
others slightly, who dove unencumbered and escaped. 

Thus perished, with others, one of the noblest specimens of 
humanity of which the race could boast, filling large circles in 
the higher walks, and crowds in the lower, with grief and sad- 
ness. As soon as intelligence of his death reached New Orleans, 
the Bar met, called Geo. Strawbridge to the chair, and resolved, 
" 1st, That the members of the Bar of New Orleans, deeply 
sympathise with the afflicted family of their deceased brother, 
Nathan Morse, Esq., who, as a lawyer, a gentleman, and a pub- 
lic servant, has been so long distinguished in ihis community, 
and that, in testimony of their respect for his memory, the mem- 
bers be requested to wear crape during the space of 30 days. 
2nd, That the members of the Bar will cooperate with the 
authorities of the city, in any public testimonial to be shown 
to the memory of ihe deceased. 3rd, That these resolves, re- 
ported by Messrs. Denniss, Eustis, Preston, and Locket, be 
communicated to his family, and published in the newspapers 
of the cily."

the strife of politics. Of course, I cannot speak of him from 
personal knowledge, nor with that particularity which might be 
so gratifying to the race. 

At the age of 10, he was sent to Elizabethtown, and commit- 
ted to ihe charge of his grandfather, who placed him at school 
under a thorough and efficient teacher of my acquaintance. He 
was then regarded as precocious. Here he remained four years. 
In the autumn of 1823, he entered the Military Academy at 
Norwich, Vt., under Capt. Alden Partridge. Of this seminary, 
he remained a member about four years, spending the latter two 
at Middletown, Con., to which city the institution, in the mean- 
time, had been removed. In 1828, he offered himself a candi- 
date for admission into the junior class of Harvard University, 
during their last term, and sustained an examination in Butler's 
Analogy, Hedge's Logic, and Adams' Rhetoric, though he had 
never read those books. Beloved and respected by his fellow 
students, he received the honors of the University the next year ; 
read law with his father until 1832, when he visited Eu
