Birth*10 July 1672Daniel Morse was born on 10 July 1672 in Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1
Marriage*22 May 1696He married Susannah Holbrook, daughter of Thomas Holbrook and Margaret Bouker, on 22 May 1696 in Sherborn.1,2
(Husband) Death14 April 1717Daniel became a widower when Susannah (Holbrook) Morse died on 14 April 1717.3,4
Research Notes* The Morse Genealogy reported that both brothers, Daniel Morse and Noah Morse each married, as his second wife, Abigail Gleason. The marriage of Abigail Gleason and Noah Morse took place on 04 November 1714 and on that date Daniel's wife Susannah was still living. She died on 14 April 1717, two years before her husband Daniel. Noah was still living when his brother Daniel died on 04 April 1719, and Noah died two months later on 02 June 1719. Our conclusion is that Abigail married only Noah Morse before her second marriage to Nathaniel Heaton.5
Death*4 April 1719He died on 4 April 1719 in Sherborn, Middlesex County, at age 46.1

In his Morse-Chickering Correction article, the author acknowledged that the information he had relied upon had come from two secondary sources and that further research had convinced him that "it is most doubtful if Annas, wife of John Morse, was a Chickering."2,3
Birth*1611John Morse was born in 1611 in Dedham, Essex County, England.1
Marriage*He married Annis ______ probably in Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. She was, by early researchers, thought to have been Annis "Chickering", a sister of Francis Chickering. The theory has since been proved false, although many publications, past and present, still perpetuate the incorrect information. John Morse's wife's surname has not yet been learned.3,4,5
