I am looking for the date and place of death and/or burial for Samuel Morse, #2927 of the Anthony Morse line in The Morse Genealogy. He was born 1-09-1772, in Bradford, MA.

Samuel's wife was Esther Bettys, who was born in Rowley, MA around 1773. They were married in Bradford, MA, 8-18-1793.

Samuel's father, Deacon Thomas Morse, Jr. (#1438, died 1829) is buried in Bradford, MA.

Samuel's son, Thomas, was born in 1810 or 11 in ME. I have seen it as either Oxford or Industry. Tom's wife, Mary Nichols, was born 1-25-1804, in Starks, ME, and died in 1885. They are buried in Georgetown, MA.

Thomas' son, Colonius, was born in ME, 5-28-1837. He is buried in Georgetown, MA.

There is a Samuel of the right age in the Oxford, Oxford, ME 1830 Census. There is a Samuel of the right age in the Industry, Franklin, ME 1820 Census.

Does anyone have more information on these people? Has anyone come across graves for Samuel and Esther?

I will post in "Franklin County," as well.
