Descendants of John Morse

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  JOHN1 MORSE was born February 12, 1769 in Stoughton,  MA1, and died Bef. 1821 in Grand Manan, NB2.  He married POLLY CASTLE February 12, 1789 in Stoughton,  MA3.  She was born Abt. 1770 in Stoughton,  MA4, and died Bef. 1860 in Milbridge,  ME5.

 

Notes for JOHN MORSE:

The origin of this branch of the Morse Family has not been fully determined.  It has been said John Morse and his family of eight first came to Grand Manan in 1802. They were certainly of the Island by the year 1807, As this was the year that John Morse petitioned the  Crown for 200 acres on Grand Manan Island. See Provincial Archives of New Brunswick (PANB) Series RS108 under Charlotte County Land Petitions 1807 PANB Film # F4171 Petition # 367.  John Morse’s petition for land on Grand Manan stated he had a wife and eight children. He and many others petitioned under Frederick Foster. The list of petitioners was reviewed by Dr. Faxon who underscored the names of those who were unworthy.  His review was dated July 26, 1806. John Morse was deemed unworthy. The petition was signed, dated and filed November 8, 1807. See PANB Series RS686 Land Grants Volume "E" page 228 Grant # 560 where John Morse was granted 200 acres on November 24, 1810. However the on-line PANB Land Grant Index states John Morse received 100 acres. I think I can explain the difference of 100 acres. See PANB Film F-5180 Charlotte Co. Land Transfers (1802-1819) volume D, page 111 where  John Morse, yeoman,sells one half of lot # 240 or 100 acres to Samuel Small for 20 pounds 10 shillings. Land butted and bounded by the land of John & Samuel Tibbits on northeasterly side, southeasterly by lot # 28, southwesterly on land owned by David Quigby (sic: should read Quigley) and on the northwesterly side by himself. The deed was made on April 13, 1810, or several months before John Morse received his grant. Tisher Hutch and John Faxon witnessed John Morse sign and seal the instrument. The deed was registered on January 10, 1811 and recorded on January 21, 1811.

 

See PANB   Film # F-5180 (1802-1819) Volume D:243-1 Where John Dunn, Esq., of St. Andrews, county of Charlotte, NB sell to John Sprague & John Morse, both of Grand Manan Island  for 125 pounds one half of lot #22  or 50 acres of the original 100 acres of the first division of lots granted to Barnabus Rich and by him sold to me, John Dunn on the 22nd of June 1812.

 

I still need to research the records after 1835 to learn what happened to these lands. A search for probate records for John Morse  was made and none was found.

                                                           

It has been hypothesized based on name,  place,  and time associations by members of the Morse Society (a society of American & Canadian descendants of Samuel,  Anthony,  William,  Robert and Joseph Morse  &  John Moss ) that the first John Morse of Grand Manan was a native of Stoughton,  Massachusetts and was the son of John-6 Morse (Henry-5,  Joseph-4,  3  ,John-2,  Samuel-1.)  John, who was of the seventh generation,  most likely removed from Stoughton around 1792 to the State of Vermont and then to Grand Manan Island, Charlotte, Co.,  New Brunswick before 1807,  when he petitioned and for a Crown Grant. Here is a clue I have overlooked for 18 years. In a letter dated 25 March 1982 from Arlene Skehan of Gardiner, Maine. She states: "All Saints  Anglican Church, St. Andrews Amity Moorse m. 21April 1818 to James Price" also "Edward Moorse m. Harriet Knight" and Joseph Moorse m. Rebecca Mahee."  " I think this clinches the ancestry of John Morse -7 (the first John Morse of Grand Manan). His great grandparents were Rev. Joseph -4 & Amity (Harris) Morse." This is something I need to chase down

                                   

A definite clue that indicates that the Grand Manan Morse originated from Massachusetts is found in the 1850 Census of Millbridge,  Maine.  It states that Mary Morse,  age 81,  was born in Massachusetts.  She was living with her daughter and son-in-law,  John and Mary (Morse) Sprague.

 

The Morse family,  who had been living in Grand Manan before 1807,  collectively picked up stakes along with the Sprague family and removed to several Narraguagus Townships in western Washington Co.,  Maine between the years 1845 to 1854.  These townships included Millbridge,  Steuben,  Cherryfield & Harrington.  As far as I can determine one Morse family remained behind during the migration.  It was that of William A.  &  Alice Morse.  Evidence shows that at least four male Morse members returned,  David,  Asa Jr.,   Alonzo  & George.  The latter two returned to live out the remainder of their lives. Morse descendants living on Grand Manan  today mostly descend through William, George and Alonzo who were the sons of Asa Sr. Morse.  David and Asa,  Jr. who were the sons of John stayed only briefly and returned to Washington Co. after 1860  The wife of Alonzo ,  who was a son of Asa, Sr.,   and who drowned in the Bay of Fundy,  returned to Steuben before the drowning in 1886 and lived with her daughter Clara. This will be discussed later.

 

A State of Maine death certificate states that the father of Henry Owen Morse (My direct line of descent,)  was Benjamin  H.  Morse (born @ Grand Manan about. 1819.)  He married Harriet Johnston @ Grand Manan on 11 August 1838.  The 1850 Census of Millbridge suggests that she was born in N.B. in 1817.  Also listed in this census under Benjamin H. are Elizabeth B., age 11, and Henry O., age 8.  (Henry Owen Morse was my great grandfather.)

 

The 1850 Census of Washington County Maine shows there were two elder Morse males who would be the father  of the 10 younger male Morse listed in that census.  They were John living in Cherryfield and Asa Sr. living in Steuben.  Based on circumstantial evidence,   Asa Sr. is the logical choice to have been the father of Benjamin H. Morse.  In 1876,  Asa Morse, Sr. Deeded land to Benjamin H.’s daughter Ida E. Tracy.  It is more likely  that Asa would have had  a land transaction with his granddaughter than his great niece.   A second Benjamin with the initial W. was in Cherryfield for the 1860 census living two houses down from the elder John Morse.  This Benjamin W. had several land transactions concerning land in Cherryfield on the ridge.  Based on the transactions,  I have no doubt Benjamin W.  was a son of the elder John,  thus strengthening the contention that Benjamin H. was the son of the elder Asa Morse.  Asa Sr. Morse married Hannah Gray,  b. in N.B. in the year 1802.

 

Based on census records and land transactions,  Asa & Hannah’s male children would include,  Benjamin H.,  Enoch,  George ,  Alonzo,  Daniel for sure & most likely William, who never left Grand Manan.  William & George married sisters.  Brothers are more likely to marry sisters rather than cousins.

 

John Morse and his wife ,  Margaret  based on census and land transactions had the following sons:  John,  Jr.,  Asa,  Jr.,  Benjamin W.,  David  & James W.

 

Those of you who desire  information concerning my sources (Vital Statistics,  deeds,  probate or whatever) contact me at:      stevensj@gwi.net

 

In time I hope to find the town in Vermont that the family removed to about 1792.  (note:  Asa born ca. 1795 is enumerated in the 1850, 1860 & 1870 census as having been born in the State of Vermont.)

 

If you can believe the contention of the Morse Society that the John Morse who settled at Grand Manan was the John Morse from Stoughton, MA. then you can lookup the first 7 generations which are in print.  The Morse Society published two volumes in 1903 & 1905 called "The Morse Genealogy",  compiled by J. Howard Morse & Emily W. Leavitt under the auspices of the Morse Society.   The Morse of interest are found in the section titled Samuel Morse and numbers 1, 2, 32, 142, 382, 857, & 1829.  Where 1829 is John Morse of the 7th generation "who married Polly Castle in Stoughton,  MA and removed to some town in Maine." They ended up in Maine ok but it was a journey that took them first to Vermont, then Canada and finally to Maine.

 

John Morse Sr.,  according to his Memorial of 1807 (Charlotte Co. # 367 1807 see Frederick Foster Film # F4171-PANB) for  Crown Land Grant stated among other things he had a wife and 8 children. On December 23, 1810 John received his grant (Book E Grant  #560 for 100 acres).  By the time of the 1821 Census of Grand Manan only 4 of his children were enumerated:

 

1.) John Jr. and wife  Margaret Morse with  with 3 male children under 16.

 

2.) Eunice and husband Ethyl Smith with a family of 2 males under 16 and 3 females under 16. Living next to brother John.

 

3.) Asa an wife Hannah Morse with 2 males under  16.

 

4.) Mary and husband John Sprague, Jr. with 3 males under 16 and 2 females under 16.

 

John Sr. & Mary Morse were not enumerated.   We know  she lived to at least 1850. John Morse, Sr. may be dead at this point.

 

There is a possibility that the Patty, wife of David Quigby Jr.(should read Quigley) enumerated with 3 females under 16 is Martha Morse. Her  husband, Elisha Smith is not enumerated. Patty was a common nickname for Martha in those days. David Quigley, Jr. and Patty are next door to John Sprague, Jr.&.his wife Mary,Jr. Morse. This remains to be proven.

 

 

    

Children of JOHN MORSE and POLLY CASTLE are:

2.        i.    JOHN2 MORSE, JR., b. Abt. 1789, Stoughton,  MA; d. Aft. 1870, Cherryfield,  ME.

3.       ii.    MARY MORSE, b. November 19, 1792, Stoughton,  MA; d. Aft. 1860, Milbridge,  ME.

4.       iii.    ASA MORSE, b. Abt. 1795, Vermont; d. Aft. 1876, Cherryfield,  ME.

         iv.    MARTHA MORSE, b. Abt. 1797, Vermont6; d. Unknown, Grand Manan; m. ELISHA SMITH, October 13, 1814, Western  Isles,  Charlotte Co., NB; b. Abt. 1800; d. Unknown.

 

Notes for ELISHA SMITH:

Concerning the 1814 Marriages of Elisha & Ethel Smith to Martha and Eunice Morse respectively.

 

Charlotte County is one of the original counties established for New Brunswick in 1785. There were  7 original parishes that were created in 1786:  Pennfield,  Saint Andrews,  Saint David,  Saint George,  Saint Patrick,  Saint Stephen and West Isles . Campobello and Grand Manan were set off from West Isles in 1803 and 1816 respectively. With this in mind Grand Manan was apart of West Isles until 1816. Therefore if a marriage was stated as having occurred in West Isles in 1814 it could have been performed in Grand Manan or Deer Isle. There lies the confusion of the Smith brothers marriages to the Morse sisters. Although the register for these two 1814 marriages state that  all were of West Isles, they were all actually of Grand Manan.

 

 

5.       v.    EUNICE MORSE, b. Abt. 1799, Vermont; d. Abt. 1841, Grand Manan.

         vi.    ISAAC MORSE, b. Abt. 1800, possibly Grand Manan; d. Aft. 1839, Grand Manan, NB; m. SARAH QUIGLEY, March 04, 1837, Grand Manan6; b. Abt. 1822, Grand Manan, NB; d. Aft. 1837, Grand Manan, NB.

 

Notes for ISAAC MORSE:

He could be son of John(1) & Polly (Castle).   If so,  he was an older man who married a girl who required permission of parents, or,  he could  be a  son of John(2) & Margaret (Who?) Morse, both could have been under age,  or even more remote is the possibility he was John(1) 's youngest  brother, in which case he would have been a man about 57 years old marrying an under aged girl. For now we'll call him a possible son of John (1) (N.S.W.)

 

Isaac Morse, yeoman, witnessed the marriage of Wentworth Quigley and Almira Sprague with Freeman Sprague on November 16, 1839.

Generation No. 3

 

6.  JOHN3 MORSE (JOHN2, JOHN1) was born January 22, 1816 in Grand Manan31, and died June 22, 1855 in Cherryfield,  ME31.  He married ELEANOR TENAN Abt. 1847 in Cherryfield,  ME32.  She was born Abt. 1825 in Cherryfield,  ME33, and died Aft. 186034.

 

Notes for JOHN MORSE:

Children of JOHN MORSE and ELEANOR TENAN are:

           i.    WILLIAM E.4 MORSE, b. Abt. 1849, Cherryfield,  ME35; d. March 26, 1915, Cherryfield,  ME36.

29.      ii.    RODNEY M. MORSE, b. September 08, 1851, Cherryfield,  ME; d. July 17, 1927, Portland, Cumberland Co.,  ME.

30.     iii.    FRANCES E. MORSE, b. Abt. 1853, Cherryfield,  ME; d. April 20, 1920, Addison, Washington Co., ME.

 

7.  DAVID3 MORSE (JOHN2, JOHN1) was born Abt. 1819 in Grand Manan37, and died Bef. 1900 in Harrington,  ME38.  He married LUCINDA W. NASH August 25, 1846 in Harrington, ME39.  She was born Abt. October 1823 in Harrington,  ME40, and died May 12, 1909 in Harrington,  ME.

 

Notes for DAVID MORSE:

David Morse never purchased land in Washington Co. It is assumed that he came from Grand Manan at the same time as the other members of his Family in the middle 1840s.  He married Lucinda Nash about 1847 and was enumerated in Harrington, ME with Lucinda's mother and father for the 1850 census.

 

See Washington Co. Deed  94:168/9 dated  14 September 1857 Wm. Freeman, Jr. sells Asa Morse 25 acres land bordered by Benjamin and David Morse.  This land is on the Cherry field Ridge and is labled the "McKinney lot."

David is not enumerated in Washington Co. for the 1860 census but is listed in the 1861 census at Grand Manan.  He and Asa, Jr, who also returned to Grand Manan for the 1861 census were listed as Fishermen and were members of the Baptist Church.  William A. Morse was listed as a member of the Episcopal Church. David and his family returned to Washington Co. by the 1870 and is enumerated in Harrington where he lived to the end of his life. The 1881 Washington Co. Atlas shows David Morse living on land in Harrington next to the Nash Family.

 

The Morse family members came to the Narraguagus area of Washington Co. about the mid 1840s.  The earliest Washington Co. deed transaction for a Morse of this family is 1852.  This indicates that these Morse family members were all allowed to settle on the land of William Freeman, Jr. until they could afford to purchase their own land.  The fact that John, Sr., John Jr., Benjamin, David, Asa, & James all settled in close proximity on the ridge in Cherryfield suggest strong family ties and it is very probable that the latter five are sons of John, Sr.

 

The  2 Morse brothers John and Asa, sons of John Morse Sr.  had  eleven male  & six female offspring  that we can account for. The six females are easy they were living in their respective homes during the 1850 census. John, Jr. removed from Grand Manan in the middle or so 1840s to Cherryfield, ME.  Asa Sr. moved about the same time to Steuben, ME.  One of the eleven male offspring, William A.,  remained behind at Grand Manan and live there all his life. George, Asa, Jr., David and Alonzo returned to Grand Manan. Asa Jr and David returned to Washington Co. ME shortly after returning to the Island and George & Alonzo lived the rest of their lives at the Island.

 

At the time of the 1850 census of Washington Co. John the 3rd was living with his father.  George, Enoch,  Alonzo and Daniel K. were living with their father Asa Sr.  An Enoch G. was living with Asa Sr. in 1860. So there are six males left to assign.

 

The only way to sort these six out was through Washington Co. Deeds.

 

James W.  & Benjamin W.  were enumerated with John II very close to each other on the ridge in Cherryfield for the 1860 census. John III died before the 1860 census.

    

Children of DAVID MORSE and LUCINDA NASH are:

9.  ASA3 MORSE (JOHN2, JOHN1) was born Abt. 1825 in Grand Manan65, and died August 26, 1886 in Perry, Washington Co.,  ME65.  He married FIDELIA HALL66 January 04, 1850 in Harrington, ME/Int.66.  She was born Abt. 1829 in Harrington,  ME67, and died Abt. 1911 in Perry, Washington Co.,  ME67.

 

Notes for ASA MORSE:

Asa Jr. lived in several places.  He left Grand Manan in the mid 1840s to Millbridge, ME settled on land  owned by Moses H. Wallace.  He was of  Millbridge for the 1850  census and on land owned by Moses Wallace.  Also on the same property was Benjamin H. Morse and family.

 

See Washington Co. Deed 87:475/6 dated 5 September 1854 where Asa purchased some of Wallace's land in Millbridge. On November 16, 1855 he mortgaged his home and land to John W. Sprague.  Apparently Asa defaulted and John got the Land. The deed was received on 27 March 1857.

 

See Washington Co. Deed 81:277 dated 27 April 1854  where Asa purchases 25 acres  on the ridge in Cherryfield from Wm. Freeman, Jr. for $50.. Land known as the McKinney Lot.   This land is next to David and Benjamin Morse's land.

 

See Washington Co Deed 94:232 dated14 September 1859 where Asa sold  Charlotte E. Morse 2 acres of the land he purchased on 27 April 1854 with the buildings for $6. Charlotte was the wife of James W. Morse. Asa's wife was Fidelia.

 

See Washington Co. Deed 94:168/9 where Asa of Cherryfield sold to Mehitable Harrington, wife of Wm. Harrington, 23 acres of land for $200., same land  as he purchased from Wm Freeman, Jr. on 27 April 1854, less the 2 acres he sold to Charlotte Morse. Fidelia relinquished  her right of dower.

 

At this point it looks as if Asa and his family head off to Grand Manan as he is not enumerated in Washington Co for the 1860 census but is found in Grand Manan in the 1861 Census.

 

He's  back in Millbridge for the 1870 census, but leaves shortly to Hipes Island, NB, where in 1875 he sells the Millbridge property.  In 1876 he is of Eastport when he takes out a mortgage on land in Perry.   Asa made good on the mortgage but in 1886 he deeds the Perry property to his wife Fidelia.  Asa dies shortly there after and Delia dies in 1911. 

 

The fact that he lived on the Cherryfield Ridge and sold some of his property to James Morse's wife makes a strong case that he was a son of John Morse rather than Asa Morse.

    

Children of ASA MORSE and FIDELIA HALL are:

           i.    ALBERT E.4 MORSE, b. Abt. 1851, Milbridge, ME68; d. Unknown; m. ANNA FICKETT; d. Unknown.

Notes for JOHN TENAN:

Information about the family of John Tenan provided by Cheryl Bragdon Stauffer,  RR# 2  Box 171,  Gardiner, ME 04345. <Cheri926@aol.com> John Tenan is listed in the Census Records of Cherryfield,  ME as Tinney in 1850,  Tenan in 1860 and Tenna in 1870. After that time in appeared as Tenan.  The Census Records also suggest he was born in 1827, 1828 or 1829. His gravestone found in the Willey -Morse Pasture along the Cherryfield Ridge indicates his year of birth at 1824.  This is the date that the SIP files housed at the Maine State Library in August suggest.

 

It is Family tradition that John Tenan's wife was Mary Jane Morse who was born at Grand Manan according to census Records of Cherryfield,  ME.  One examining the the 1850,  1860 & 1870 Census Records easily realizes that she would be a daughter of John,  Jr. & Margaret Morse. In these 3 census she is living next door to Father and some of her brothers .  Mary Jane's year of birth is stated by the Cherryfield - Narraguagus Historical Society as 1829 according to a letter to Cheryl Stauffer from Margery Brown dated 7 February 1998.

Notes for BENJAMIN W. MORSE:

See deed 87:74 where Benjamin W. & his wife Mary Jane Morse  purchased 25 acres of land on the Cherryfield Ridge 0n the 2nd  of September 1856 from William Freeman, Jr.  See deed 93:487/8.  where on 25 September 1856 Benjamin and his wife mortgaged this land through William Freeman, Jr.

 

Notes for MARY JANE TENAN:

In 1850 Mary Jane Tenan is listed as age 19 (b. about 1831).  However her age according to he tombstone calculates that she was born in 1825. It is my conjecture that her birthday is correct as found on her tombstone.  Therefore I am assigning her year of birth as 1831.
