Here are all of the other mentions of Morse, in addition to the page that was already noted:

Page 397 (413 in PDF): Section "Agriculture". "At our fairs we had different speakers almost every year, of whom I remember Elder Morse, ..."

Pages 469-470 (485-486 in PDF): Section "Religion" Churches at Mondovi. 2. Baptist Church. Present pastor, Rev. A.C., Robinson. Services: Sunday, 11 a.m. Sunday school, 12m. On alternate Sundays evening service 8 p.m. Prayer meetings Wednesday evenings. Although application has been made, no report was received from Rev. A.C. Robinson. From memory and from notes of others I supply the following: Rev. B.F. Morse must be considered the father of the Baptist Congregation at Mondovi. He came in 1856, and says: "For the first ten years of my ministry my field of labor extended over parts of three counties, Buffalo, Pepin and Eau Claire. I supported myself principally by farming." The "Elder," as Mr. Morse was familiarly called, was a favorite with numerous Christians of all denominations. He was highly respected for his sincerity and unaffected affability towards all persons. For many years he was the pastor of this church, and during his pastorate the congregation built a splendid new church and furnished it neatly and comfortably. On several occasions he was the speaker at agricultural fairs and always did meet expectations. For some years and age and infirmity compelled him to quit the ministerial service. I regret to learn that he is about to move to the farther West, but he takes with him the best wishes of the writer among those of a host of others. To resume the history of the church, it appears that this congregation, in common with that of the Congregationalists, extended assistance to the Methodists for the furnishing of their church, and that it occupied the same church with them and the Congregationalists for about three years. According to the statement in the Buffalo County Atlas their new church was built in 1873 at a cost of $5,000. It stands at the corner of Main and Franklin streets.

Page 491 (507 in PDF), in the "Earlier Marriages" section, #150 James M. Cathcard to Mary Min. Warren, May 27 '62 by Rev. B.F. Morse

Page 542-543 (558-559 in PDF), in the section "Soldiers". Twenty-Fifth Regiment of Infantry. Company G. Henry L. Morse, Private.

Page 558 (574 in PDF): Thanks from the author to Elder B.F. Morse of Mondovi (among others) for assistance in compiling list of early settlers.

Page 637 (653 in PDF): Sections "Towns", Gilmanton. "The first religious meeting was held by Rev. B.F. Morse at the house of Mr. Rathbun."

Page 644-645 (660-661 in PDF): Section "Towns", Mondovi. "The first settlers in this town came in 1855 and were H.P.L.D. and P. Farrington, Wm. Van Waters, Thos. Glasspool and Harvey Brown. Rev. B.F. Morse came in 1856."

Later in that section: "The first marriage was that of Mr. and Mrs. Billings and the knot was tied by Rev. B.F. Morse in a shanty belonging to John Callahan."

Bump mentions:

Page 542 (558 in PDF): "Soldiers" section: Twenty-Fifth Regiment of Infantry, Company G - Menzus R. Bump, Corporal. Gile O. Bump, Private, John Bump, Private.

Page 578 (594 in PDF): "List of Early Settlers" section:
Bump, J.W
Born Hartford, NY
Settled June 1856

Page 644 (660 in PDF): "Towns" section, "Town of Mondovi" sub-section. The territory of the town of Mondovi is Township 24 of Range 11. It is bounded on the north by the town of Albany in Pepin on the west by Canton. Beef River flows through Section 13 in a western, through Section 14 in southwestern and through other sections in a generally almost southern direction. The northern part is comparatively level and adjoins the valley of Big Bear Creek. From the hills of this plain and those in the town of Albany flow some streams which form what has been named Farrington's Creek. From the heights in the southern part of the town Dillon's Creek flows toward Beef River. The soil in the corner between this latter creek and the river is largely sandy up to the foot of the hills and there is some sandy land west of the village near the river, but otherwise the land is of good quality as in most towns. The southwestern part of the town is very hilly, with many valleys between the bluffs. The original town of Naples, of which Mondovi is the western part was set off in the shape it had for so long time on the 20th day of March 1857, and in 1881 at the annual meeting of the county board the separation of the two towns into Mondovi and Naples was resolved upon.

The first settlers in this town came in 1855 and were H.P.L.D. and P. Farrington, Wm. Van Waters, Thos. Glasspool and Harvey Brown. Rev. B.F. Morse came in 1856. Luther Eager and family came the same year, also John Callahan. At the first election Orlando Brown was chosen chairman, Harvey Brown town clerk, J.W. Bump treasurer and L.D. Farrington assesor. It must be remembered that at this election, and only this, the town of Naples consisted of Townships 23 and 24 Ranges 10 and 11 and that Hon. O. Brown then lived in Township 23 R. 11. There were only 19 votes at this election, which does not seem to indicate a very dense population for such a large town.
