Notes for Lt. Anthony Morse
His will was dated before that of his father, which caused some confusion in the earlier genealogical works. Morse and Leavitt credit Mr. Henry D. Lord for disentangling the two Anthony Morses. Anthony and his first wife had three children (note that Morse and Leavitt do not seperate the children by his wives, but the dates of death and marriage make the attribution clear).181

Lawson has some of this confusion in his account of Anthony, so we generally will not cite him as a source of data on the Morses.

Morse and Leavitt have his death in Newbury on 22 February 1677, while I have it on 25 February 1717. Track down the source of that error.
