The death of Cornelius W. Morse, a former well known Burlingtonian, occurred recently at his home in Maritowoe(sic), Wis. He was a graduate of the University of Vermont in the class of 1858, among his classmates being, George H. Bigelow, John C. Farrar, Dwight S. Heald, James Reed Hickok, Charles Hoyt, Prof. H. A. P. Torrey, and Mr. M. R. Tylor.

Mr. Morse leaves a wife, two sons, Norman and Bowen, a daughter Miss Helen, a nephew Jay W. Morse in Manitoba, two sisters, Miss Fannie Morse, and Mrs B. B. Beaman of this city.

Mr. Morse was born in Burlington. He was admitted to the Bar in 1860, and in 1861 he enlisted in the Civil War and served until 1864. Later he went to Wisconsin, and there conducted a mercantile business for many years.

After an absence from this city of 35 years, Mr Morse returned for a visit about two years ago. Recently he attended the Gettysburg n, at which time was apparently well and happy.
