Harvey K. Morse

At his home on Clinton avenue Tuesday evening January 12, occurred the death of Harvey K. Morse, a veteran of the Civil war, and a resident of St. Johnsbury for the past seven years. Mr. Morse had been ill of heart trouble for three years and in his last illness, his sufferings were intense. The funeral was held from his late home Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock, the Rev. P. B. Fisk of Plainfield officiating. Chamberlin Post, G.A.R., attended in a body and members of the organization acted as bearers. Interment will be made in Mt. Pleasant cemetery. At the funeral service, two appropriate solos were rendered by Frank C. Woods.

Mr. Morse was one of the seven sons of the late Leonard Morse of North Danville and was born in that town sixty-six years ago last May. He enlisted in the 4th Vermont, Co. K, from Danville and served three years. Upon being mustered out he returned to Danville and followed his occupation of farmer and plumber for a number of years. About the year 1887, he removed to Passumpsic and lived there fifteen years. For a number of years, he was employed at the scale factory. He was a man of considerable ingenuity and strict integrity.

Mr. Morse was twice married, his first wife, who was Miss Marian Huse of Danville, died many years ago. In 1876 he was married to Miss Hattie S. Hartshorn, of Danville, the Rev. P. B. Fisk performing the ceremony. Mrs. Morse survives him. He is also survived by four brothers; Frank, of Barre; John, of Peacham; Henry, of Vershire; and William, of Claremont, N.H. Among those here to attend the funeral were: Frank Morse and daughter, Edith, of Barre; John Morse of Peacham; and W. N. West, of Danville.
