Notes on the Geography of Uruguay: Uruguay Cemeteries: Photo 30
Here's a Yankee born on Martha's Vineyard in 1841. He was a son of Captain John O. Morse, a whaler who fell sick at sea and was buried in Peru. One of Captain Morse's daughters married another whaler who took her and two of her young brothers to Uruguay. There the whaler sold ice and became the American consul. The two brothers grew up to be captain and first mate of the river steamer "Villa del Salto." How James happened to be buried here I don't know, but the house of his father, Captain Morse, remains a historical site on the Vineyard.
