Daniel P. Morse, a grandson of Ashbel Parmelee, D. D., was born in Malone April 6, 1852, and after quitting
school was associated with his father for a time in the boot and shoe business in Malone. In 1872 he obtained a
position with a wholesale boot and shoe house in New York city, and after a dozen years of experience and study
of the business branched out on his own account. His success has been pronounced, and no man now stands higher
in the trade. Mr. Morse soon convinced himself that the business was conducted generally on mistaken and illogical
lines, which he proceeded 'to reform so far at least as his own establishment was concerned. The course that he
pursued other dealers quickly recognized as wise, and all followed his methods, so that the trade is now upon wholly
different lines from those that formerly obtained. Mr. Morse's business is of very large proportions, and his house
is known as one of the most reliable and progressive in the United States.
