I am very excited about the information that you have just given. I do have a file on the Cudd family and never found any other connection to a Morse family other then my own. I would love to help you investigate this a little further if you are interested. My Morse family comes from SC... and is John Morse about 1834. I have information descending from him but not ancestors of yet. Would love to share information to see if I could connect with your Morse.
