I have run across this peculiar sounding occupation several times in my genealogy travels and didn't know what it was until just now so thought I would post this here in case anyone else has been wondering the same thing.
Apparently the person in this trade was some sort of a shoemaker or dealt with leather.
"Morocco" was a type of goat skin leather that was much lighter in weight than what those of the days had been wearing. The "dresser" was the person who actually tanned or softened the leather.
I hope this helps others out there wondering about this occupation.
