By custom, Morses Pond is spelled without an apostrophe.
Historically, an 1831 survey map shows a small pond and milldam in the ownership of Daniel Morse. Thus, using Morse's may seem appropriate since Morse is a family name. However, Maps and the Town prefer the spelling be Morses. For example, if you use Google Local (maps) on "Morses Pond, Wellesley MA", it will work and if you Google Local on "Morse's Pond, Wellesley MA", it will not work. Furthermore, all references to the Pond in the Town web site, the NRC Morses Pond description and studies use Morses.
