Thomas H. Corse was born in Bakersfield September 30, 1827. His father was Gad Corse and his mother's maiden name was Lucetta Morey. He was the eldest of a large family and at the time of his death was the oldest person in the town of Cambridge, having passed his 94th birthday. He came here when he was 16 years of age and had lived here ever since. There were four brothers and three sisters in the family, only one of whom survived him. Three of the brothers, Thomas H., Rodney N., and Henry P., saw service in the Civil War. Thomas H. Corse enlisted as corporal in Company E, 7th Regiment of Vermont Volunteer Infantry, December 5, 1861, and saw strenuous service for over a year with that regiment in the "Everglades" of Louisiana, where he contracted a serious illness and was discharged for disability at Pensacola, Fla., February 25, 1863. After his recovery, he engaged in farming which he followed until advanced age made a change when he made his home with his son, C. A. Corse, with whom he lived until his death. In his immediate family, he is survived by his son, C. A. Corse, and a daughter, Mrs. Mary Gallup of Cambridge, and one sister, Mrs. J. M. Safford of Burlington. Mr. Corse was a member of Cambridge Post, No. 10, G.A.R., and always took a lively interest in its affairs. The funeral services were held at his late home, the Rev. Roy Green conducting.
