Hi Judy, Thanks for the reply those are the "extra" people that I said made it all very easy to assume that one is another when they are actually different people. Hence the confusion. I have seen online family trees where the submitters have assumed that they are one and the same when they clearly can not be. Different ages, birth locations and marriage dates and partners.
The two Amherst Morses who went to Newfane Vermont are father and son, if I recall, but I don't believe that either is the Amherst who married Azubah Fisk.
Being as they all came from Worcester Co., Massachusetts, I assume that they are cousins of some sort, possibly named after a common ancestor.
I am still looking to prove what I speculated in my earlier post but I may never be able to. The mention of the guardianship I had not seen before. That will be the next item I want to look into.
As for Catherine teaching in Dover Vt in 1800, she would have only been 15 years old and according to the 1800 census for Wardsboro, Vt. which is what Dover was part of at the time of the 1800 census, there are no Fisk(e)s and no Amherst or Azubah Morse.
I personally haven't seen anything that places Catherine in Vermont so far. I have her in Worcester and Boylston in Massachusetts and then Keene, New Hampshire until her death.
...as for the other Azubah Morse... I told you there too many people with too few names... lol.
