Obituary

Benjamin Franklin Morse

Benjamin Franklin Morse, who died Feb 18, 1932, at his home in Morrisville, was a member of James M. Warner Post, No. 4, Department of Vermont, G.A.R. He was a fine citizen and a loyal member of our post. We hiss his kindly smile and his always pleasant ways. He was always ready to help in affairs of the post and we deeply regret and mourn his departure from us. Comrade Morse served three years and seven months in the CivilWar, in Compan E, Eighth Vermont Regiment. He was a member of Mineral Lodge of Mason of Wolcott.

He held the offices of chaplain and quartermaster and also was the holder of the gold-headed cane presented by the late Glenn A. Wilkins, which was to be held by the oldest member of the post, and at the death of the last member to be deposited at the library in Morrisville. Commander E. C. Butterfield now is the holder of the cane. G. A. Bridge, Adjt.
