Joseph Burke, from Westminster, Vt., came to Morristown in 1800, and located upon the farm now owned by A. M. Burke, on road 10. Here he reared a family of twelve children-five sons and seven daughters and remained until his death, in 1846. But two of the children are now living, Joseph and Carlos C., the former aged eighty-nine years, and the latter seventy-three. Both live together on the old farm, neither ever having married. Samson, the eldest son of Joseph, came here with his father, married Levisa Haskins, and reared a family of ten children, six of whom now live in the town. Two, A. M. and C. C., constitute an enterprising law firm. Samson died October 18, 1863, and his wife died June 20, 1878.
