Dr. Norman M. Bruce appears to have been the next physician to settle in Somerset, who remained any considerable length of time. We find mention of his name in the records as early as 1814, and as late as the middle of the century. He finally removed to the State of Iowa and died there. His son Andrew, also a physician, removed to Springfield or Columbus, Ohio, about the year 1851, and died there some two or three years ago. Dr. Michael Berkey was a son-in-law of Dr. Norman M. Bruce. After practicing here some years he removed to Mount Pleasant, Iowa, soon after the year 1850, and there remained until his death. His father-in-law, the elder Dr. Bruce, accompanied him to Iowa.
