He Started His Own Business
When Morton returned to the states, he worked as a pharmacist, married a woman named Charlotte, and had two sons. As though he didn’t already have plenty on his plate, Morton also started his own business.
While overseas, he’d met a textile worker who he collaborated with on getting lace-making machines to the US. From there, Morton began his own lace-making business, which has managed to stand the test of time. He has since passed it on to one of his grandsons.
