  • Notes 
    • William H. Morton - May 9, 1837 - November 25, 1932. Son of Solomon and Charlotte Bunn Morton. Husband of Arvilla Wright. Married November 28, 1856. Section 5, Row 14.
      Newspaper Obituary - Friday, November 25, 1932 Oswego Palladium Times - Oswego, New York - William Morton Dies At Age Of 95; Sailed Lakes - Death of Port Ontario Veteran Follows Upon That of Wife - Pulaski, November 25 - William Morton, 95, retired Great Lakes sailor, died Friday morning at his home at Port Ontario, only about five weeks after the death of his wife. Had Mr. and Mrs. Morton lived until November 28, they would have celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary. They undoubtedly had held the honor the past few years of being the oldest married couple in this section of the country. Mr. Morton was born in Morristown, May 9, 1837, son of the late Solomon and Charlotte Bunn Morton, pioneer settlers of Vermont. The parents of both Mr. and Mrs. Morton came from New England, later settling in the Pineville neighborhood. Mr. Morton spent many years on the Great Lakes and had seen in his lifetime heavy shipping from Selkirk and Oswego harbor and sailing vessel commerce at its height. One of the most treasured possessions of the couple had always been their marriage certificate, a tiny, worn square of paper dated November 28, 1855, and signed by Eli Wheeler, justice of the peace. Mr. Morton leaves three sons, William at home and Alphonso and Dennis who live nearby. Prayer services will be at the home Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and in Bethel church at 2 with the Rev. Lee A. Howe, Jr., of the Baptist church officiating. Burial will be in Daysville.
