Burr J. Morgan was born January 14, 1857 in Morrisville, Madison county, son of Augustus and Maria Morgan. His father was a tanner, and had seven children. The subject of this sketch was the fifth from the oldest and was educated at the Morrisville Union School, then went as a drug clerk with Mead & Chapin in his native place; was there about seven years, went to Cazenovia, from there to a wholesale drug house in Syracuse, then came to Parish February 5, 1885, where he started for himself in the drug business in a store he rented. He was married November 19, 1884, to Winifred Jones of Morrisville, and they have two children, Katie and Blanche. The store which Mr. Morgan rented when he came to Parish he has since purchased and rebuilt. The property is located in the heart of the village and the store is as thoroughly appointed a drug store as can be found any where. Mr. Morgan is also postmaster of Parish.
