Morrill learned the trade, of tanner and currier in Woburn, Mass., and in 1844 came to Wis., and engaged in the mercantile business at Sauk Prairie, which business he continued for about five years, then bought a farm, which he carried on until 1861, when he moved to Grand Rapids, and bought an interest in the tannery of J. McGrath; remained in company with him about two years, then bought him out, and has since run the tannery himself. Mr. Morrill was married to Miss Emeline C. Tabor, just before he moved West.
