1939

MORSE FAMILY

In 1939 Mrs. Milo MORSE apparently was using a kerosene lamp to start a fire. Consequently, the house caught fire. Four of the MORSE children aged from 11 years to 16 years (sic) died in the fire. Mrs. MORSE, who was badly burned, died two weeks later [March 21, 1939]. Mr. Milo MORSE and his son Everett were in the barn milking cows when the fire broke out, consequently escaping injury. The MORSES lived southwest of Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.

Those who died as a result of the fire were:
Maude Elizabeth (KIMBLE) MORSE, born 1902; died March 21, 1939
Ruby Marie MORSE, born 1921; died March 3, 1939
Evalyne Louise MORSE, born 1923; died March 3, 1939
William Franklin MORSE, 1933; died March 3, 1939
Mary Lou MORSE, born 1939; died March 3, 1939
They were interred at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.
