DEATH OF E. R. MORSE OF RUTLAND
Capt. Edmund R. Morse, 65, one of the most prominent citizens of Rutland, died Friday. He was ill ten days with typhoid pneumonia, which was complicated with Bright's disease. Capt. Morse was a native of Boston and came to Rutland some 35 years ago, and established a drug store with E. A. Pond, from which wealth was acquired.
He joined the Union Army as Quartermaster of the 7th regiment, and was promoted to a position on the staff of Gen. George F. Butler, and was assigned to the department of the gulf. He took a leading interest in the Grand Army of the Republic, and served one term as State Commander, Since the close of the war he had mainly devoted himself to real estate transactions.
He married Jeannie, the only daughter of Hon. Rodney C. Royce, a distinguished member of the Vermont Bar. To them one son was born, Col. E. Royce Morse, now the general manager of Vermont Marble Company.
The funeral of Capt. Morse was under the direction of Knights Templar.
